This should come as no surprise that those that have carefully peered through the fifth-generation iPod touch's specification sheet, although it still does decidedly come as an over-the-shoulder shock and a reminder of just how different Apple's iOS devices are for buyers that are looking for a full iPhone 5 replacement. Benchmarks for the newest iPod touch reveal just how much it contrasts with the iPhone 5, retaining a spot as its cheaper alternative.
For reasons yet to be determined, Apple has informed its vendors that, starting in May, they will no longer be carrying a number of screen protectors in their online and retail stores. This includes both stand-alone screen protectors and products which include screen protectors. The new policy includes clear, anti-glare, and mirrored film, which are not just popular iPhone accessories, but also a big seller for owners of the newer glass-screen laptops. In addition, Apple isn't just removing film protectors that cover the screen but also any film that protects areas such as the laptop palm area or the back side of the iPhone and iPod.
Targus is showing off a new product claiming the ability to do away with smudges and fingerprints forever. It's a new screen protector using patent-pending Clear View technology that supposedly makes it completely "fingerprint-resistant." The iPhone 3GS and latest iPod touch were supposed to reduce visible residue from contact with our greasy mitts, but it doesn't totally remove the problem. If this thing is as great as they say it is, it could mean no more ugly glare obstructing, say, Safari while you're reading your favorite iPhone blog on the go.
