In line with the launch of the iPhone 5, Apple introduces a new uniquely designed earphones, called Earpods.

Same as the previous Apple Earphones, the Apple Earpods have a built-in microphone. 

I believe they'll be including this earphones with the next iPhones to come. And as always, Apple will allow you to buy this seperately by a cost, I'm guessing, still $29 or more.

I personally love the design itself, but the performance? Though it's looks are looking awesome, Apple won't let the audio quality out of mind of course.

To talk more about the design, I personally think it looks.. "futuristic" looking. I love it actually.

In the pictures, you'll observe that Apple still keeps the clean and sexy look of the earphones, but you'll see that the hole, where the sound comes out to your ears, are smaller, and vertical. I don't know why, but It makes the earphone more unique and better looking.. and different.

This is Apple's Official Line of the product: 

The Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic are designed to rest comfortably inside -- and stay inside -- a variety of ear types. The audio quality is so superior, they rival high-end headphones that cost hundreds of dollars more. And you can use the improved remote to adjust volume, control music and video playback, and answer or end calls on your iPhone.

For more information about the Earpods, you can check out Apple's website itself.

YouTube app removed from iOS 6 but not iOS 5 and older; Google working on a standalone version


Apple just got in touch with us regarding the removal of the YouTube app in the latest beta of iOS 6, and while it wouldn't say much, it did confirm the obvious: it's not there for a reason.

The licensing deal it had with Google "has ended, but users can still use YouTube via the Safari web app." The company did affirm, however, that Google "is working" on another version -- presumably a standalone app that'll have to survive the same App Store approval process as Google Drive, Gmail for iOS and the rest of the bunch.

Interestingly, we were told that the YouTube app "would remain on iOS 5 and older," and that includes iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Granted, the amount of iOS 5 users will dip dramatically in the months following iOS 6's release this fall, but it leaves open the question of compatibility -- will the forthcoming YouTube app for iOS 6 be installable on iOS 5 and older?

All things considered, it's probably a good thing for consumers. Yes, it's another play by Apple to distance itself from its biggest mobile OS rival (Maps, anyone?), but it also gives Google the chance to reimagine the YouTube app, and perhaps even design it to showcase a great mobile experience around the company's huge original content push. Apple wouldn't comment on the status of Google's new YouTube app, nor would it speak to whether or not it had even been submitted for approval, but we're guessing the clock watchers know that September 12th is drawing near.

My First Electronic Device

Tune in as I give a brief explanation of my electronic history. What was my first tech device? How did I begin using a Mac? Thanks to Jack Hide-Smith for submitting this question!

Jack's Twitter Page -

My first electronic device was given to me by my uncle somewhere between my 3rd and 5th birthdays and it was the classic Sega Gamegear. Back then, I lived for games like Sonic and The Lion King. Gamegear slowly led me to Nintendo products, such as Game Boy Color. My love for tech began to grow, inducing the purchase of an iPod Mini in 2005 at age 13. After joining a forum to learn how to use the iPod, I was quickly ambushed by Mac geeks, encouraging I switch from Windows. So, I gave the cheapest Mac at the time, an iBook G4, a try. The rest is history. What is your electronic history? Leave it in the comments below! I'd love to hear the story!
