A new Apple patent app has surfaced that shows some of what Apple has in mind for NFC technology with the iPhone. The art in the patent application shows the iPhone pairing via NFC tech to what appears to be a Sony PS3 controller for gaming. Some analysts are claiming that Samsung has beat the iPhone in Q2. According to analysts, Samsung is predicted to have shipped twice as many smartphones in the last quarter as the iPhone. The Google Earth application for iOS devices has been updated with new 3-D city flyovers. The new version of the app is version 7.0.0.
