Imitation is flattery, because the only better thing than an iPhone is an iPhone flask that holds your favorite booze. The iFlask is the product of recent graduates and bros Ethan and Dan from Indiana University whose initial project Kickstarter failed. This did not deter the team, as they’ve managed to set up a relatively simple webshop to spread the joy of drinking. While in college we had countless friends get open container tickets during tailgates or complained about paying too much for drinks at concerts and sporting events. And unless you’re a 70 year old talking about the good ole days, carrying around a standard flask looked kinda weird! We knew there had to be a better way to discretely bring the joy of throwing one back with your friends to countless events worldwide…Thus the iFlask was born! continued… New Career Opportunities Daily: The best jobs in media .

Samsung has a new ad for the Galaxy S4, its latest smartphone. It takes place at a graduation party where all the recent grads have Samsungs, and their parents have iPhones. (Not so subtle message: iPhones is for the oldsters.) The commercial manages to give real life examples of how Samsung's gimmicky software might actually be used. This part of Samsung's successful, years-long ad campaign to make its brand seem hip and make the iPhone seem old and dorky. (For what it's worth, I hung out with a non-techie friend last night who got the S4. She had no idea how to work any of these new software features like no-touch waving at the phone, or hovering over a message for a preview. I doubt she's going to be alone in this.)

Amazon this morning updated its Kindle iOS app with support for Apple’s “VoiceOver” reading and navigation feature for blind and visually impaired users of the iPhone and iPad. Amazon says more than 1.8 million e-books will support the technology, which automatically reads aloud the words on the page. The decision to use Apple’s VoiceOver is notable in part because Amazon recently acquired a company , IVONA Software, that provides Kindle “text to speech” and other features — potentially helping Amazon rival Apple’s Siri feature. Amazon says in a news release that it’s launching new accessibility support first on iOS and will be adding similar features to other Kindle apps later. Amazon has faced past criticism and lawsuits from advocates for blind and visually impaired readers, seeking to block efforts to bring Kindles into schools and universities because they weren’t fully accessible. The company says the new accessibility support for the Kindle iOS app gives broader access to features including text search, notes, bookmarks, X-Ray, and social media sharing. The app is available here for download or updating, and the VoiceOver feature can be enabled in iOS under Settings > General > Accessibility.

Siri may be feeling a little job insecurity. The sometimes droll assistant that answers questions and helps people manage their lives on Apple's iPhone and iPad is facing competition from an up-and-comer made by Google.

Google is bringing its most interesting mobile application to its biggest competitor’s phones. Starting today, the Google Now personal assistant application will be added to the Google Search app for iPhone and iPad . This move was expected , but it is a loud-and-clear demonstration of Google’s and Apple’s differing mobile strategies. Where Apple would never-ever-no-way bring Siri or its other signature apps to Android , Google wants to get people using its services from wherever they are. Of course, Google Now will still be a better experience on Android, where it is built into the latest operating system and is accessed via an upswipe motion, along with live-updating home and lockscreen widgets. Not gonna happen on an iPhone. But iOS users will be able to use 22 of the 29 currently available Google Now “Cards” at launch. That includes proactive personalized alerts about upcoming appointments and traffic, sports scores and news alerts, and information about nearby attractions and places where people often take photos. Nine-month-old Google Now is really only useful if you actively use the Google suite of services — Gmail, Google Calendar and especially Google Search. It is one of the best examples of an app where people don’t just get tracked and give up personal data for no reason — they do it in order to get the benefit of a service that understands their personal context. And along with voice search, it’s an example of Google

Viele von uns können sich ein Leben ohne Smartphone nicht mehr vorstellen. Wir benutzen es für alles Mögliche: um uns an einen wichtigen Termin im Kalender erinnern zu lassen (vielleicht ein erstes Date), für die Routenplanung zum Italiener, bei dem ein Tisch für zwei auf euch wartet. Und mit der Einführung von Google Now für iPhone und iPad kann dein Smartphone ab heute noch mehr. Bei Google Now geht es darum, immer die richtigen Informationen zur richtigen Zeit zur Hand zu haben. Google Now zeigt euch morgens beim Anziehen das aktuelle Wetter oder warnt euch vor dichtem Verkehr auf dem Weg zu eurem großen Date. Google Now kann euch über den neuesten Stand einer interessanten Geschichte informieren, euch daran erinnern, euch rechtzeitig auf den Weg zum Flughafen zu machen und vieles mehr . Ganz ohne Suche: Now-Karten erscheinen genau in dem Moment, in dem sie gebraucht werden – und je häufiger ihr Google Now nutzt, desto größer ist euer Nutzen. Google Now für iPhone und iPad ist mit der aktualisierten Google Suche App verfügbar. Gemeinsam mit der Sprachsuche wird Google Now euren Tag noch ein bisschen reibungsloser verlaufen lassen. Zusätzlich zu den praktischen Karten in Google Now bietet die Google Suche auch weiterhin direkte Antworten auf eure Fragen. Versucht doch mal auf das Mikrofon zu tippen und eure Frage in das Telefon zu sprechen – die gesprochene Antwort kommt sofort. Ihr könnt Google beispielsweise fragen "Brauche ic

Sometimes Apple's demo spots for the iPhone are charming; other times they can feel cold. The recent ones, with the rapid-fire word jumbles and cheerleader-style chants, had an odd, rah-rah vibe to them, which came across as sterile (a danger within Apple's already minimalist environment of purely imagined space). Coincidentally or not, TBWA\Media Arts Lab goes all warm and fuzzy in its latest iPhone spot, "Photos Every Day," which leaves the stark white background behind and reenters the real world. With a quiet piano playing, the 60-second ad shows scene after scene of people using their iPhones to take photos—of their friends, of their family, of nature, of themselves. The spot subtly demonstrates some product features (cropping, zooming, taking panoramic shots) but mostly shows people, and lives being lived. Likewise, the voiceover at the end is broader than usual: "Every day, more photos are taken with the iPhone than any other camera." Apple doesn't often use this line of argument—that you should do something because everyone's doing it. (Through most of its history Apple said the opposite—that you should do something because no one's doing it.) But that's Apple now—no need to think different if the best product happens to be the market leader. And the evocative tone of the latest spot is striking a chord. It's the first Apple ad in a while to top 1 million views on YouTube. Credits below. CREDITS Client: Apple Spot: "Photo
