Posted by Matt P. on Jun 08, 2011 | 1 Comment

Disclaimer: This is a pre-release developer build; therefore the following images, features, etc. may not represent the final version of iOS 5. On Monday, June 6th, Steve Jobs took the stage at WWDC to introduce the world to a slew of new things coming to the iPhone, iPod, and iPad. The biggest thing was iOS 5, which is what many, many people have been waiting for. Apple has put in over 200 new features into this revamped... 

Possible next-gen iPod Nano parts leaks out

Posted by Matt P. on Apr 04, 2011 | 9 Comments

And here we have another Apple product part leak from China. Thank you, Apple.pro. This time we’re getting a look at what is possibly the next-gen iPod Nano casing, and seems as if there’ll be no major upgrade besides a rear camera attached to it. We’ll soon find out what Apple has up their sleeve later this year at their annual iPod event. Source: Apple.pro via Engadget AKPC_IDS += "40481,"; Read More →

Intel leaks possible MacBook Pro refresh

Posted by Matt P. on Feb 16, 2011 | 3 Comments

There’s been a lot of talk about a refresh to the Apple MacBook Pro lineup for a little bit, and it seems as if Intel let one model slip out in a new Intel ad. The ad shows us what looks to be a black, thinner MacBook Pro sans webcam. Of course, this could just be another laptop, but this Intel has a history of being loose lipped on leaking new MacBook’s in ads. Source: 9t05Mac AKPC_IDS += "40275,"; Read More →

White iPhone 4 now in AT&T’s online system

Posted by Matt P. on Jan 24, 2011 | 7 Comments

Again, the unicorn device from Apple is popping up again. But this time now in AT&T’s Online Account Management System (OLAM), and is listed under ‘iPhone 4 – 16GB White’ and ‘iPhone 4 – 32GB White.’ Does this mean we’re finally gonna see this device go on sale after countless delays? Hopefully we’ll see something in the next couple months, but who’s really... 

Apple giving iPhone 4 multitouch gestures?

Posted by Matt P. on Jan 19, 2011 | 1 Comment

There has been talk about Apple getting rid of the home button on the next gen iPhone and using multitouch gestures instead. BGR has a couple screenshots of said options, and it’s looking real. Now, this is said to be an internal iPhone 4 in testing, so we have no idea how long this has been around, or if it has a home button or not. Do you think the next gen iPhone and iPad will utilize multitouch gestures instead... 

The Verizon iPhone. It’s here.

Posted by Dan H. on Jan 11, 2011 | 3 Comments

The Verizon iPhone. It’s here. Verizon held a press conference in New York this morning, and they (along with Apple) announced the Verizon iPhone 4, which will be available early next month. According to Verizon’s Lowell McAdam, the talks about a CDMA iPhone began in 2008, and the phone has been in testing for an entire year that involved at least 1,000 prototypes. The Verizon iPhone runs on Verizon’s... 

iPad Dethroning the DVD Player, CNBC Still CNBC

Posted by Zealot on Oct 05, 2010 | 21 Comments

A very interesting but somewhat ludicrous Fast Money column today shows that even though CNBC’s former Silicon Valley bureau chief (and infamous Apple fanboi and mouthpiece), Jim Goldman, left the station in July to work in PR, his spirit lives on, at least in terms of the station’s fawning worship of all things Apple. The core of the column is factual and speaks for itself. The iPad has out done the DVD player to... 

Scalpers Overwhelm Apple Stores in China

Posted by Zealot on Oct 01, 2010 | 1 Comment

If you needed more proof that the Chinese market presents a unique and challenging environment for Western tech vendors, here it is. Apple has had to take extreme measures in China such as making buyers present ID at purchase, have their iPhone 4s opened and activated in the store and even closing the doors of their four bright, shiny Chinese Apple stores for a time to try to deal with scalpers. The problem stems from... 

The Next iPad? Choose Your Rumor

Posted by Zealot on Sep 26, 2010 | 3 Comments

I don’t know why I am surprised that for all the rabid speculation that led up the the debut of the current iPad, the speculation about the second generation iPad is even more wild…mega-rabid even. Considering what a big hit the first version of the iPad has been, it stands to reason that people would want to see how Apple will try to top themselves this time. In fact there have been so many rumors, none of them really... 

iPhone 4 Opening Not So Impressive For China

Posted by Zealot on Sep 26, 2010 | 2 Comments

The iPhone 4 has finally gone on sale to China Unicom subscribers, and the opening numbers certainly look impressive on paper, especially when compared to last year’s iPhone 3 release. According to Apple, China Unicom has over 200,000 preorders for the iPhone 4 and more than 1000 people lined up at Beijing’s shiny new Apple Store for the unveiling. This is compared to just 5.,00 sold in the first 4 days for the iPhone... 

Apple to Drop Infineon Chips?

Posted by Zealot on Sep 12, 2010 | 5 Comments

When Intel bought Infineon’s wireless division, I anticipated some fallout from Infineon’s major client, Apple, despite statements by Intel about how thrilled Apple was with the purchase. After all, why should Intel tell us Steve Jobs was happy while Jobs himself remained silent? It is not like Jobs is exactly shy concerning the media. Somehow I just couldn’t see El Jobso being terribly happy with a key component... 

It Had to Happen: The iPod Nano Watch

Posted by Zealot on Sep 12, 2010 | 11 Comments

From the first moment it appeared in Steve Jobs’ cool, confident hands most every liveblogger had the same reaction to the new touchscreen iPod Nano…”Look, it’s an iWatch!” Therefore, there is little surprise that it took about a week for watches made using the iPod Nano to begin appearing. Both Gizmodo and CrunchGear are reporting on a version of the iPod Watch that makes use of a Maratac watchband. As could... 

Apple Event on September 1

Posted by Zealot on Aug 26, 2010 | 5 Comments

Well, it is now official…Apple will be throwing their expected end of summer Shindig for 2010 on September 1st. As usual Cupertino is not giving any explicit hints about WHY they are summoning the press to San Francisco but everyone knows that when it is September, Steve Jobs fancy turns to iPods. At this point a new iPod Touch with cameras and Facetime capabilities is a lead pipe cinch, and there is a lot of smart... 

iPadlet Coming Already?

Posted by Zealot on Aug 17, 2010 | 3 Comments

More and more rumors are piling up that Apple will indeed be releasing a 7 inch little sister to their popular iPad device, possibly as early as this Christmas. Digitimes reported a few weeks ago on rumors of the smaller version of the Apple tablet, designed to go after the ebook reader market, now another Asian source is chiming in. Taiwan’s Economic Daily News is reporting on information that several local companies... 

iPads in Israel: A Guide for the Perplexed

Posted by Zealot on Aug 15, 2010 | 6 Comments

One can’t say that the relationship between the Israeli market and the iPad started off smoothly. For one thing, Israel entered Apple history by initially banning the private importation of iPads, going so far as to confiscate them from tourists at the airport and charging them a “storage fee” until they left the country with their contraband iPad. Needless to say that situation hit the tech blogs and then the main... 

Apple Manager Arrested for Supplier Kickbacks

Posted by Zealot on Aug 15, 2010 | 9 Comments

I suppose stories like this are the norm for major electronics companies now, and Apple should view them as the price of success, but a midlevel manager in their iPod division has been fired and arrested for accepting kickback from more that half a dozen Asian suppliers. Paul Shin Devine, identified as a Senior Operations Manager, iPod Division is being held by US Marshalls after an investigation by both the IRS and the... 

Executive Roulette at HP and Apple

Posted by Zealot on Aug 08, 2010 | 5 Comments

Two major resignations took the tech world by surprise over the weekend, both of which are just dripping with irony. First of all, HP’s CEO Mark Hurd has resigned over financial improprieties that came to light during a sexual harassment investigation. Then, Mark Papermaster, the executive in charge of the iPhone 4 and widely regarding as the man personally responsible for the iPhone Antenna, is “leaving Apple”... 

Macs, Colleges and FUD

Posted by Zealot on Aug 08, 2010 | 5 Comments

The blogosphere and the stock market are both atwitter over a recent point from Trip Chowdhry at Global Equities in a report downgrading Microsoft stock. You may remember Trip as he reported (aka totally made up) that there was a chance that Steve Ballmer would appear at the last WWDC with Steve Jobs. Anyway, Chowdhry made the following statement… 70% of incoming University freshman students are coming with Macs, which... 

iPod 4G Coming Mid-August?

Posted by Zealot on Aug 08, 2010 | 3 Comments

A rumor is circulating that, if true, indicates that the recent Antennagate has REALLY discombobulated Apple’s internal schedule. I have never seen a company that kept to as disciplined and consistent a release schedule as Apple does, right down to the timing of leaks. According to the Cupertinean Calendar, September is iPod Announcement season, falling right after the iPhones have bloomed in June. However, the signs... 

Jailbreak is legal

Posted by ctitanic (left mobilitysite) on Jul 26, 2010 | 11 Comments

The US Copyright Office says that Smart Phone owners have the right to run whatever software they want in their phones. As result, Jailbreak is Fair Use! Jailbreaking the iPad might void your Apple warranty and even your terms of service from AT&T, however the US government has just ruled the practice legal under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). The exemption applies for three years until the next rulemaking...
