This Picture Was Taken By the iPhone 5

Originally discovered by PocketNow, the image below seems to have been taken using the upcoming iPhone 5. And unlike other leaks and rumors that are fake, this happens to be real. Why? Because the EXIF data from the image has some data that doesn’t match with the Camera model it was taken from.

The photo was uploaded on Flickr and supposedly taken by the iPhone 4, but the EXIF data says otherwise. As PocketLint states;

This (very attractive) photo claims to have been taken by an iPhone 4, but the rest of its EXIF data tells a different story: although the image has been cropped to 2235×2291 (5.12 megapixels), the original picture was a much larger 3264×2448 — or just shy of eight megapixels. What’s more, the lens was recorded as a 4.3mm f/2.4, which is closer to that of a point-and-shoot than the iPhone 4′s actual 3.85mm f/2.8.

The iPhone 4s 5 megapixel camera has a f/2.8 lens, whereas this photo’s data shows it as f/2.4 and it was taken on August 22. That’s not the most interesting thing, however. This delicious meal was the lunch of an Apple Engineer and was taken inside Cupertino’s Apple Headquarter or at least that’s what the location data from the picture says. There’s been a long running rumor that the iPhone 5, which should be out this October, will sport an 8 megapixel camera. So could this be the first photo from an iPhone 5? Well, all the evidence points to Yes. And interestingly, the original photo was removed from the Flickr account of the Apple Engineer, which is always a good thing.

Here is the same image, modified and the curve of the plate to reveal some more details. It was worked on by Brandon of TIMN(This is My Next).

You can clearly see that the person taking the picture with a mobile phone. Could it be the iPhone 5? Let’s hope so!! Read more here.

Apple Airs the First iPhone 4S TV Ad

One of the most important and highlighted features of the new iPhone 4S is Siri, in a word, it’s breathtaking. It’s one of a kind and has an attitude. Now, there are many alternatives and apps for Android and other devices, but none of them gets even close to what Siri can do. Although this is an iPhone 4S only feature, developers are working really hard to get Siri working on iPhone 4 and iOS 5.

As Siri is the key feature here, Apple’s new television ad for iPhone 4S, the first TV ad for that matter, is solely based on Siri alone. There is no mention of anything else, nothing about the camera or the new processor. The ad is then to the point and will obviously attract many users, well, Apple iPhone ads always do, don’t they?

The ad kicks off with the Siri interface and with users asking Siri various questions such as “What does a weasel look like?” and ” Do I need an Umbrella in New York this weekend”. It is quite a fast paced ad with a voice saying ‘Say hello to the most amazing iPhone, yet’ at the end of the ad. Watch the ad after the break, it has some good music too;

So what do you think? Is this the most amazing iPhone yet? Have you been successful in talking to Siri?

May 21 Doomsday, The Rapture is Tomorrow

May 21 is a big day, not for me at least, as I’ll be playing Modern Warfare and having a drink, but for all those believers of God it is. It has been predicted by a Christian Group in the United States that the end of the world will begin on May 21 2011. Yes, just a day away from the worldwide destruction caused by floods and earthquakes and what not that will ultimately lead to our dear Planet Earth bursting in to flames.

May 21 Doomsday posters are probably everywhere now, thanks to the worldwide promotion by Familyradio.com. There you go, I mentioned their name again, some more promotion to them, as more of you will go and visit the website and check out what’s really going on. I don’t know what’s really going on, apart from some rational ideas by irrational people suggesting that a Rapture will begin tomorrow May 21 2011 and will last for about 153 days until everything on Earth will be killed on October 21 2011. Not exactly everything, according to the prophecy(the Bible), all those who are the believers of God will be killed and taken to heaven and others will be left behind. I have no words to express my joy about me staying behind, I get to live another 153 days than all the others.

Okay, now you’ll be wondering why so soon? What happened to the December 21 2012 deadline, what’s the reason behind  all this? All your questions will be answered on May 22 when I start playing Angry Birds all over again.

Alright, I’ll tell you why!!

The Christian group in the United States has come out with some crazy mathematical equations that prove the end of the world will start tomorrow May 21 2011. The equations are based on some excerpts from the Bible itself, which they believe is more of a calendar than a Holy book. Below are the two excerpts that have played an important role in determining May 21 Doomsday theory.

God had written in the Holy Bible in Genesis 7:4:

For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.

God added in Genesis 7:10-11:

And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the Flood were upon the earth. In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

If you don’t understand what the above lines mean, don’t worry you’re not alone. To read more you can go here or here.Or you can also watch the video after the break.

I would suggest you to still keep following us on Facebook and Twitter as there will be more updates on the latest technology and gadgets even after the May 21 doomsday begins. If you believe that May 21 2011 is the beginning of the end then you should probably subscribe to that iPlayboy Magazine soon, a 6 month subscription should be good enough.

Give us your thoughts, laugh it out, shout it out, and cry if you want to in the comments.

Watch the Royal Wedding Online on YouTube

This is not something that we would usually write about, but it’s important that people get to watch the Royal Wedding of Prince Williams and Catherine (Kate) Middleton. The Prince of Britain, the United Kingdom is finally getting married and that’s really a very big occasion. I’ve been told by my friend that the whole of London is eagerly waiting and preparing for the Royal Wedding to take place later today, Friday 29 April 2011 at Westminster Abbey.

The Royal Wedding Broadcast

On the other hand, it’ll still be a normal day for me, except for people trying to get to their television sets or computers and watch the whole thing live as it takes place. Hence, I’ll be telling you how to watch Royal Wedding online.

The Royal Wedding

The preparations for the Royal wedding are almost done, and the whole thing will be streamed online on a certain YouTube channel so that everyone can watch it and get wedding ideas.

Okay, so my friend who’s in London, gave me some information on the preparation, seems like there is quite a long list of things that each of the guests are required to perform. It’s as if the whole wedding has been perfected for a spectacular performance, more like a rehearsed show.

That’s however not the point here, of what and how the guests invited are supposed to behave and drink tea. The point here is, how to watch the Royal Wedding online. So, getting to the point, the whole wedding will be streamed live on YouTube’s Royal Channel.

That’s all you need to remember if you’re planning to watch the Royal Wedding Online. Just tune in to the YouTube channel at around 15:30 in the evening for the show to begin.

And beforehand, Congratulations to Prince William and Catherine Middleton from the ShoutMeLoud and CallingAllGeeks Team.

India First to Ban .xxx Domain

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), recently approved the creation of a “.xxx” domain for pornographic websites and the first .xxx domains will start appearing in the next few months. But India is strictly opposed to this and has become the first country to declare its offensive against the .xxx domain and will block URLs ending with .xxx as soon as the domain registrars start selling them.

xxxdomain_thumb

India along with countries from the Middle East and Indonesia first opposed the grant of the .xxx domain by ICANN. India is geared up to block the whole domain as it goes against its IT laws. Distribution of pornography is illegal in India and carries a prison sentence of upto 5 years but its consumption is not illegal. Its likely that more countries will follow India’s lead after India blocks .xxx domain.

TechSpot reports that In order to register a new .xxx domain, porn sites have to pass an application process that’s designed to ensure that their site does not engage in fraud, child pornography, nor offer up malware to users. A key reason the porn industry opposes the new TLD is that it adds additional costs: sites have to register and pay for additional .xxx domain names to avoid having their brands hijacked.

Pornographers and free speech activists are voicing concerns that the .xxx suffix will allow authorities to  find and block out adult content more easily. It will also cost pornographers more money to register new .xxx domains to to ensure their brands do not get hijacked.

We think this is a good initiative on part of India’s governance to block all .xxx domains the country. With the state of laws in the country there’s very little monitoring on usage patterns and every school going kid has access to the porn on the internet. But stricter cyber laws has ensured that children going to cyber cafe’s will be much safer against porn now than a few years ago.

We, CallingAllGeeks team thinks that this is a good initiative by India. We hope that any of you parents’ reading our blog should be more cautious with your children using internet and take measures to keep them safe from adult content.
