09/03/2009, Word has it that Apple is working round the clock to make sure the Mac OS X 10.6.1 update will be free of major glitches and bugs when released, which is pretty good to know since this move occurs just four days after Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard arrives on store shelves. Selected groups of developers are currently toying around with these external builds in order to make sure […]
09/03/2009, Sony has finally wrested from Apple what it thought to be its perpetual property in Japan – top spot in the portable media player market since introducing the Walkman all those decades ago. Yes sir, the new generation of Walkmans that support MP3 files instead of cassette tapes have now overtaken Apple’s iPods in terms of market share – the first time ever in the past four years. The lead […]
09/02/2009, At least, that’s what “very reliable sources” claim – the much awaited Apple TV upgrade won’t see action at Apple’s event that is scheduled for next Wednesday, in direct contradiction to what Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster touted for September 9th to see the debut of the 40GB Apple TV model which points toward a new hardware model, a lower price point or even both. What do you think – […]
09/02/2009, Novothink’s Surge iPod touch case is one to look out for – it comes not only in an attractive design, it also boasts integrated solar panels to juice up the device. Under the full strength of the sun, the Surge is touted to output 5.5V at 100 mAh, while the integrated 1500 mAh lithium-ion polymer battery is able to go one-fifth further compared to what the iPod’s internal battery can […]

08/31/2009, While many have switched to AT&T just to get the iPhone, many more are anxiously waiting for another carrier to sell it. Gene Munster at Piper Jaffray believes that within a year, iPhones will make their way to other U.S carriers. There is proof in Europe that when Apple switched to a multi-carrier model, its market share was very positively affected. It is then logical to think that when the AT&T […]
08/28/2009, New unnamed sources from China’s industrial city Shenzen, where a lot of electronic stuff is produced, claims to have seen aluminum Apple Tablets, including one that runs Mac OS 10.5. The source doesn’t say if the units were concept prototypes or pre-production samples. ‘it’s not FoxConn’, apparently (Foxconn is one of the several contract manufacturers that Apple hires to actually build its products) Most rumors put the Apple tablet size at […]
08/28/2009, Deborah Carr from Ohio has filed a lawsuit against Apple over the lack of MMS support. “Millions of customers, as a result of the false and deceptive representations and concealments of Apple and AT&T purchased the 3G and 3GS, waiting for the wonderful day in June 2009 when the new application would be available which would allow MMS,” the court filing states. “Unfortunately, after downloading the new 3.0 Software Update […]

08/27/2009, We do know that in all probability, the next generation of the iPod nano and iPod touch will come with a built-in digital camera upgrade that will be announced sometime next month, but a new report has pointed towards this upgrade being applied to the iPod classic as well. OmniVision has been reported to be the sole supplier of 3.2-megapixel CMOS image sensors for the new line of iPods, stressing […]
08/27/2009, I know a few people who use a Macbook Pro as their main system and that means that the laptop is on a desk 98% of the time. The BookArc is a simple, but classy, stand that will turn the Macbook into a slim tower, plus it’s better for cooling as the hot air exit is not placed at the top, where the hot air naturally goes.
08/27/2009, The not-so-secret Apple tablet might not be out anytime soon and we still don’t have a blurry spyshot to refer to, but if the iTab Mini is anything to go by, you can consider our appetites more than hungry for the real thing. This mod project sees a 12.1″ resistive touchscreen display being melded with salvaged parts of an aged PowerBook, although it will run on an Intel Core 2 […]
