What Would You Look Like As An Early Hominid?

You can debate how much we have evolved emotionally since our early primate days in Africa, but there’s no arguing about our looks. At that point in human development. we were to beauty what the butt is to fine cuisine - distantly related, and in all the wrong ways.

Apple reportedly putting acquired map technologies to good use in iOS 6

A switch away from Google’s mapping data in favor of Apple’s own in-house solution is imminent, according to a report by 9to5Mac. Citing “trusted sources,” the site says the Maps application for iOS will be done “completely in-house,” mapping data and all, thanks to Apple’s acquisition of Placebase, Poly9, and C3 Technologies over the last couple of years. Apple’s deal to use Google’s Mapping data is also said to be expiring soon, opening the door for Apple to begin experimenting with its own technologies.

Saving the whales? Now there’s an app for that, too. 

An interesting new iOS app launched today called Whale Alert. Though it’s available for anyone, the iPhone/iPad app is intended primarily for use by workers in the shipping and maritime industry. It “combines science and technology to help save critically endangered North Atlantic right whales by reducing threats of collisions with large ships along the East Coast of North America.”

handsfullofdirt:

this is from my third year project for ‘information and interface design’. the project has two parts, a print outcome and a digital media outcome. this is a selection of the digital media outcome, an ipad application.

we were to create an advocacy campaign for greenpeace using infographics to represent data. my topic was the banks in australia and their funding of coal power. the aim of the overall campaign is to get the banks to redirect funding into more renewable energy sources and reduce financing for coal power.

the app is meant to be a more personalised aspect of the campaign, where the user can investigate their bank and the breakdown of what they fund, as well as compare the four main banks against each other. the app also allows the user to choose various coal power stations from the map and then investigate more about them. the last screens encourage the user to take action and contact their banks and urge them to redirect funding.

part 2 will come in a few days once i spend a million dollars on printing the final.

EFB For iPad: Will Your Pilot Be Using This In 2012?

Back in February, we heard that a private jet company had gotten FAA approval to use an iPad-based charting system instead of paper charts, which are  the standard throughout the industry. They used an app called Mobile  TC, but GlobalNavSource has come up with another app, EFB (“electronic flight bag”), and it’s being offered for free until they release it commercially on June first.
