Vi får desværre ikke selv lov at lege med den nye iPhone 4 før (formentlig) sidst i juli, men derfor kan vi jo godt læse de amerikanske anmeldelser! Og siden alle har så travlt, så travlt, så er her de vigtigste linjer fra nolge få udvalgte.

We’re not going to beat around the bush — in our approximation, the iPhone 4 is the best smartphone on the market right now. The combination of gorgeous new hardware, that amazing display, upgraded cameras, and major improvements to the operating system make this an extremely formidable package. Yes, there are still pain points that we want to see Apple fix, and yes, there are some amazing alternatives to the iPhone 4 out there. But when it comes to the total package — fit and finish in both software and hardware, performance, app selection, and all of the little details that make a device like this what it is — we think it’s the cream of the current crop. We won’t argue that a lot of this is a matter of taste — some people will just prefer the way Android or Symbian works to the iPhone, and others will be on the lookout for a hardware keyboard or a particular asset that the iPhone 4 lacks — but in terms of the total picture, it’s tough to deny that Apple has moved one step past the competition with this phone. Of course, in the hyper-accelerated smartphone market where the Next Big Thing seems to always be just around the corner, it’s anyone’s guess how long they keep that edge.

As with previous iPhones, the latest model breaks new ground. FaceTime video calling on the iPhone 4 is one of those cool “seeing is believing” features, and it arrives on top of several across-the-board enhancements. And iOS 4 is a mostly terrific software upgrade. Cutting through the hype, Apple has given longtime diehards, and first-time iPhone owners, plenty to cheer about. Walt Mossberg Just as with its predecessors, I can’t recommend this new iPhone for voice calling for people who experience poor AT&T reception, unless they are willing to carry a second phone on a network that works better for them. For everyone else, however, I’d say that Apple has built a beautiful smartphone that works well, adds impressive new features and is still, overall, the best device in its class.

Now, the iPhone is no longer the undisputed king of app phones. In particular, the technically inclined may find greater flexibility and choice among its Android rivals, like the HTC Incredible and Evo. They’re more complicated, and their app store not as good, but they’re loaded with droolworthy features like turn-by-turn GPS instructions, speech recognition that saves you typing, removable batteries and a choice of cell networks. If what you care about, however, is size and shape, beauty and battery life, polish and pleasure, then the iPhone 4 is calling your name.

Og til sidst en ultra kort besked fra BoingBoing

Would I buy it? Yes.

Et par videoer af forskellige funktioner

Microsoft lancerede i sidste uge den nye Xbox 360 Slim, som officielt har fået navnet Xbox 360 250GB.

Der er tale om et komplet redesign af både indre- og ydre features. Boksen er blevet mindre, dog ikke markant, og er nu pianolak sort. Det vil sige, at den skinner som den første PS3, men alt hvad det medfører af fingeraftryk og støv. De har desuden tilføjet ”touch” knapper, som på PS3’en.

Inden i er de to kølere skiftet ud med én større, som skulle afhjælpe støjproblemet en del. Samtidig benyttes en ny 45nm chip, som skulle afgive mindre varme. Alt i alt burde den altså være noget mere lydsvag end sin jetjager forgænger.

Harddisken er nu på 250GB og er ikke længere helt så ”hot swapable” som den gamle. Når / hvis du skifter den gamle ud, kan du overføre indhold med Transfer Kit’et ($20) eller bare bruge en USB stik. Gæt hvad der er nemmest. Det skal i den sammenhæng nævnet, at der ikke længere kan bruges memory units overhovedet.

Microsoft har endelig indbygget en wifi-adapter, således at den nu har N-standarden indbygget – en netkabel mindre bag TV’et, yay! De har også smidt en optisk lydudgang på selve bagsiden, så man ikke skal bruge donglen til component og composite mere. Endelig er der et Kinect / Natal stik bag i maskinen. Såfremt man har en gammel boks skal Kinect bruget strøm fra lysnettet.

Her er en god videogennemgang af den nye maskine, som har dansk street date den 16. juli og en pris på ca. 1700 kr.

En lille video af en sjov augmented reality ide. Den virker godt og kræver kun printer og webcam. Og ja, det er min mus i midten af billedet, undskyld…

Hvis du vil prøve selv, så er konceptet at finde via dette link.

IGN kalder spillet “det bedst spil siden Ocarina of Time”, og det er første gang i 10 år, at de har givet et rundt 10-tal. De fremhæver byen, historien og multiplayer, og siger spillet let kunne koste $300 i stedet for $60.
