Beyond that, well, your guess is as good as ours. The minimalistic magenta invite promises that the carrier will be delivering its “boldest moves yet,” via an image file titled, fittingly, “moonshot.” Moon rockets? PlayStation Moves? BlackBerry Bolds? The sky’s the limit, apparently.

  • Google to loan Street View Trekker to third parties, build out Maps on the cheap

    Google to loan Street View Trekker to third parties, build out Maps on the cheap

    Are you a tourism board, non-profit, government agency, university or research organization? Google wants you to help add 360-degree imagery with its nifty Street View Trekker, through a brand-new loan program. If you get the nod from GOOG, you’ll have a chance to roam the Earth with the company’s human-mounted camera equipment. The Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau was tapped as the first volunteer — the group is currently hard at work shooting popular attractions throughout the 50th state. Though the terms aren’t entirely clear, we’re willing to bet that Google’s giving preference to bonafide orgs, rather than sending its pricey gear off with individuals. Still, if you’ve been dying to contribute to Maps, it never hurts to apply. To get started, just fill out the form at the source link below. Oh, and as you’ve probably already guessed, there’s a 60-second video after the break, too.

  • Twitter #Music for iOS adds genres for more targeted filtering, thankfully omits rap-rock

    Twitter #Music for iOS adds Genres, because raprock should standalone

    Twitter’s still tweaking its #Music app for iOS, currently the only mobile platform that’s privy to the discovery service. Previously, users could only toggle through four categories (i.e., Popular, Emerging, Suggested and #NowPlaying) to stumble upon artists and tracks of interest. But as of today, Twitter’s updating the app’s filter, adding genres, like Metal, Country, Dance and all the predictably labeled rest to Charts so you can “get hip-hoppy” (it’s in the changelog) or get your Bieb on or make jazz hands to the sounds of that Rihanna. The new version 1.1 update also lets users now authenticate Rdio from within the app — no more linking out to Safari — and irons out some known bugs, too. If you’ve already downloaded the app, then just sit back and wait for it to update. First timers can head to the source below for to test out the Twitter-made music assist.

  • Apple patent stuffs two ports into one, saves space in your laptop

    Apple patent stuffs two ports in one, saves space in your laptop

    Port space is very limited on laptops, but Apple has just received a patent that could solve that problem in the simplest way possible: cramming two ports into one. Expanding on what we’ve seen with some multi-format card readers, Apple has designed a layered port whose staggered electrical contacts and overall shape let it accept two different connectors. While the company uses the combination of a USB port and SD card reader as its example, the patent could theoretically apply to any two technologies that make sense together. The real question is whether or not Apple will use its invention at all. The Mac maker has a few slim portables that could use some expansion, but there’s no evidence that the company will tweak its computer designs in the near future.
