The HEX Code Wallet case is nicely built, but a little too unwieldy

A few years ago, I decided to do my best to narrow down the number of things I carry around in my pockets every single day. Instead of one giant keychain with all of the keys I’ve ever owned on it, I cut down to two smaller keychains, one for my house and another for my car. And instead of a giant wallet that had been stretching out my back pants pockets, I instead just grabbed the insert out and stuck my ID and a few cards in there. Other than that, my iPhone 4 is the largest thing I carry around all the time…

Apple Stock Tops $700 After Record-Breaking iPhone 5 Pre-ordersToday, Apple has done something that puts the company in rarified air.

Apple’s share price closed today at $699.78, up $8.50 (1.23%). But in after hours trading, the price has breached $700 a couple of times. As it sits, Apple’s market cap is $655.98 billion.

Concept video shows a better Spotlight for iOS

Designer Cody Sanfilippo put together this concept video of how Spotlight on iOS could work, and it’s quite impressive. The current implementation of Spotlight for iOS (accessed by swiping left on your iOS device’s homescreen) is fairly useless; while the search is very thorough, the list of items you get is not very helpful, and you generally end up seaching through the list almost as long as it would have taken you to just go find whatever you’re looking for in your actual iPhone.

But Sanfilippo’s concept wisely separates the found items out into a filtered window, and then crams as much information about each found item as possible there…

Fox 5 New York gets suckered by iPhone 5 concept video

Tech reporting is hard. So many new products, so many features; who can keep track of them all? The answer: not the gang at the NYC Fox affiliate’s late evening news, who managed to misrepresent the iPhone 5′s feature list rather dramatically.

As pointed out by 9to5Mac, the coverage package of interviews with line-waiters at the 5th Avenue store who are anticipating the Friday launch took a rather surreal turn. The reporter breathlessly cites “a laser keyboard and holographic images” for the new iPhone, as a clip plays showing those capabilities…

iMessage was a bit rocky for some today

After a rough patch last week for iCloud, Apple has been having some issues today with iMessage. Reports on MacRumors and Twitter indicate some people were having trouble using Apple’s SMS replacement. Problems included messages not sending and error messages.

It’s not a problem for everyone using the service, but it had many Apple users gritting their teeth. Many people are now reporting the service is working again, but my personal experience with iMessage is that most of the time it works, but several times a week the service stumbles and my iPhone has to revert to standard SMS…

Apple seems to be following the letter of the law of a 2009 European Union agreement designed to reduce environmental waste by standardizing its iPhone connectors to Micro-USB.  But does the iPhone 5′s new Lightning connector comply with the spirit of the agreement?
The 2009 agreement specifically urges signatories to make sure that every mobile phone sold within the European Union be charged with a common charger. The common platform the phones would use would be Micro-USB, specifically Micro-USB configured with the 2009 CENELEC EN 62684 and ETSI EN 301489-34 standards…
