Apple’s latest patent likely for its next gen iPhone has been revealed, the graphical picture below shows not only that the next iPhone will have a camera on its frontside but possibly a new fancy technology applied to the screen. The new patent describes a morphing interface that will adapt to the motion of the user. For example, if you are in a shaky bus, the elements on a list will automatically enlarge so you can target them better with your fingers.

BenQ’s all in one iMac like nScreen i91 was announced last month and has finally arrived in Asia (though we think its also available in Australia, please confirm if anyone knows!). Though we don’t exactly know whether this iMac competitor may be arriving any other countries at the moment, the i91 does look to be a piece of cool gadget for websurfing and daily use. The i91 contains two key “Yukon” parts: the Sempron 210U processor and the M690E integrated chipset. The Sempron runs at 1.5GHz and is coupled with 1GB of 667MHz DDR 2 memory. The i91 can be picked up with either 4 to 16GB of solid-state storage, or 120 to 250GB hard drive capacity. On board is also 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, 10.100Mb/s Ethernet and a pair of USB 2.0 ports.
ZumoDrive is a free app just recently released on the App Store which works in tandem with a downloadable desktop client (Mac OS X or Windows) to let you easily move and use files between your desktop, your laptop, and your iPhone. Unlike other apps on the App Store such as Air Sharing (which isn’t free), ZumoDrive does require you to install a lightweight free software on to your computer and requires that both your computer and your iPhone have access to the internet either via 3G, WiFi or EDGE in order for you to upload files (photos and music as well) onto the ZumoDrive server. But this isn’t too difficult, the free iPhone client supports both Windows and Mac OS X, you just need to choose the appropriate one. I suppose the major difficulty here is you’re also having to rely on ZumoDrive’s cloud for storage instead of storing files locally, but there are always good and bad views on this.
In terms of the user interface, once connected, your ZumoDrive will show up like another hard drive where you can easily drag files that show up almost immediately on other devices. What makes ZumoDrive unique is that it automatically understands not to store larger files on your iPhone, but gives you access to those files from the cloud. However, it’s important to note that the free version only allows you 1GB of space to work with, which was quite surprising to me as I would expect at least 5GB with so many large files that we need to deal with nowadays. Nevertheless the money will need to come from somewhere I suppose! Upgrading the plan on ZumoDrive to 10GB will cost $2.99 per month and so on. For most users who deal with just simple word or PDF documents, 1GB should be enough.
