Apple rolls out new major Remote app upgrade for iPhone, iPad

apple-remoteApple has released its first major update of its Remote app, which allows users to control their iTunes and Apple TV directly from their iPhone, iPod, and iPad iOS powered devices in a sleek user interface with the help of their wireless home network.

The latest update brings many new features to the free app, which is available now on iTunes, such as new Retina high-resolution support, and a new interface for the iPad to better utilize the larger display.

Directly from an iOS device, a new feature called Home Sharing allows users stream songs and other media directly from their iTunes library to their home theater (or AirPlay speakers), with the complete media library being accessible from the iOS device.

Apple changes app store rules, to become more open and transparent

Apple has long been restrictive with what apps get approved in its iOS app store found on the iPhone and iPad.

Apple previously decided to allow developers to only use the computer programming language Objective-C, including C++, effectively blocking other programming platforms like JavaScript, and Adobe’s hugely popular Flash platform.

In a recent blog post, Apple chief executive Mr. Jobs, expressed his views specifically about Flash, essentially claiming the proprietary Flash platform is dated and not suited for mobile devices, instead opting towards the open source HTML5 standard.

The direction of Apple not only initiated an anti-trust investigation by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), but also forced Adobe to announce the company would cancel all plans to develop for the iPhone and iPad.

Colon cancer is one of the leading causes of death. Irrespective of family history, everyone is exposed to the risk.

Screening with a colonoscopy will painlessly remove any polyps hence almost entirely reducing your risk of developing the horrible disease. The good news is that about 90% of colon cancer cases are preventable through a simple (yes, simple) colonoscopy.
