  • Yet Another iPod Touch 4G Case Leaks — But This Time From A Mainstream Maker

    Yet Another iPod Touch 4G Case Leaks — But This Time From A Mainstream Maker

    Today is new iPod day. It’s pretty much a sure bet after seeing the music-themed invite and all the leaks showing the upcoming models from the past few weeks. But most of those leaks are from random Chinese factories, which doesn’t exactly lend to their credibility. However, HardCandy Cases apparently didn’t get the memo and is currently showing their latest case for, you… Read More

  • Apple To Reignite The iPod Fire With Hot New Models This Week? Yep.

    Apple To Reignite The iPod Fire With Hot New Models This Week? Yep.

    Apple has an event on the books for this coming Wednesday and it’s widely expected that Steve-O will announce new iDevices, specifically an iOS-version of the Apple TV and new iPods. Most of the pre-iTV news is purely speculative as we really don’t know much about it, although it should hit at a lower price point and a new cloud-based iTunes should debut alongside the device.

  • Apple Special Event Taking Place September 1

    Apple Special Event Taking Place September 1

    We’ve just received an invite to an Apple event taking place on Wednesday, September 1. Yes, next week. The event will be at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco at 10 AM PT. While Apple will only say that this is a “special event,” the image above makes it clear that just as with their events every September, this one will be mainly about music —… Read More

  • Insufferably Self-Promoting iPhone Repair People Look At the 4G iPod Touch

    Look, we get it: some folks been able to source iPod Touch 4G screens from creepshow contacts in Asia. We’re well aware that there will probably be a front-facing camera, the screen will probably be better, and it will probably be available on September 7, just in time for Apple’s back-to-school event. In all honesty, I’m kind of over it. Read More

  • Get Your iPod Touch 4th Gen Parts Here!

    Get Your iPod Touch 4th Gen Parts Here!

    It’s almost that time of the year. Are you excited? It’s almost new iPod time! Of course there will be a new iPod touch, but the big question is whether it will have dual cameras and retina display. If these parts from China have anything to say, it’s that there will be at least a front-facing camera, perfect for Facetime. Apparently this part is a prototype and leaked out… Read More

  • The tPhone Is Yet Another iPod Touch 3G Jacket

    The tPhone Is Yet Another iPod Touch 3G Jacket

    The flood gates are open! The tPhone is the third iPod touch 3G jacket we’ve seen in as many weeks. Just like the Apple Peel 520 and the Sprint-bound Peel, this device adds a 3G modem to a jailbroken iPod touch, which then allows for phone calls and SMS. This model, however, seems to follow the same design cues as the Sprint Peel and is more of a docking jacket than a wrap-around… Read More

  • New iPod To Sport Retina Display And Dual Cameras?

    New iPod To Sport Retina Display And Dual Cameras?

    And why not? The iPod touch has always been positioned as a non-phone version of the current iPhone, though the hardware hasn’t always been completely in parallel. The original iPod touch got a hardware boost that put it past the original iPhone, but was leapfrogged by the 3GS and now, almost a year after the iPod touch 3rd generation announcement, it seems pretty natural that they… Read More

  • Ebay Pulled The Camera-Equipped 3rd-Gen iPod Touch

    Ebay Pulled The Camera-Equipped 3rd-Gen iPod Touch


    Apple fanboys, ebay just crashed your party as the auction site pulled the iPod touch camera listing. Why? Here’s part of Ebay’s statement. Most items listed on eBay are legitimate, and there are many things we do to protect our members from buying items that aren’t. One thing we do is remove items reported to us as allegedly infringing through the eBay VeRO program. In… Read More

  • Apple iPod Touch FaceTime & iPad iOS 4 Event Happening In Weeks?

    Apple iPod Touch FaceTime & iPad iOS 4 Event Happening In Weeks?

    Apple rumors are fly left and right these days. That must mean something is happening real soon. MacMagazine just got word from one of their reliable sources that an Apple event is on the books for sometime between August 14-16, making Monday the 16th a shoe-in. They say the event is centered around both the new FaceTime-equipped iPod touch and the iPad’s iOS4 update. But as with most… Read More

    3rd-Gen iPod touch With Camera Selling On Ebay

    While the whole world waits for the official iPod touch camera edition, one random dude is selling a camera-equipped 3rd generation model right now on ebay. It’s not going to be cheap (current bid is over $120 as of writing) but the winner will have a bonafide piece of Apple history. Read More

  • An iPod touch "Peel" 3G Case Gets Reviewed, Deemed Usable, But Not An iPhone Replacement (Yet)

    An iPod touch "Peel" 3G Case Gets Reviewed, Deemed Usable, But Not An iPhone Replacement (Yet)

    The iPod touch has always been looked upon like a phone-less iPhone, but users will soon be able to change that as suddenly, there’s a few different 3G jackets popping up. The seemingly Sprint-bound Peel hit the FCC a few days back and now a similar product was reviewed in China. The Apple Peel 520 (probably not officially endorsed by Apple) seems slightly different than the Sprint Peel… Read More

  • Is This The Next iPod Touch?

    Is This The Next iPod Touch?

    Disclosure: The photo above isn’t supposed to be the next iPod touch. It’s a photo mock up that one case manufacturer apparently made to match the specs provided by Apple. As you can clearly see, though, there’s a rear-facing camera with flash. Does this mean Apple is finally ready to put a camera in the Touch? Read More

  • Flash ported to the iPod Touch, in a manner of speaking

    Sure it looks horrible and the video is awful, but believe us when we tell you that the same guys who created the Spirit jailbreak have ported Flash to the iPhone. The video, apparently taken through the pinhole camera truck the Bloodhound Gang built back in the 1980s to see where they were being taken after a kidnapping, shows a Strongbad clip. This is obviously a proof of concept in its… Read More

  • An iPod touch with 2MP cam appears in Vietnam

    An iPod touch with 2MP cam appears in Vietnam

    What’s going on in Vietnam? Unannounced Apple products seem to be falling from the sky. The same group that released the second round of iPhone 4G pics got their hands on an iPod touch with a 2MP rear-facing camera. The DVT-1 stamp clearly states that it’s not a production model, but rather a pre-production or prototype model, suggesting that this boy might not ever get a release. Read More

  • A Security Check At Square Ahead Of This Week's Launch

    A Security Check At Square Ahead Of This Week's Launch

    Earlier today, testers of the new mobile payment service, Square, got a scare. Emails were sent out suggesting that users had changed their bank account information, and Square was emailing to let them know that the new account was verified. The only problem? These users didn’t actually change a thing. Obviously, this caused some concern, as did the note at the bottom of the email… Read More

  • Decoding Steve Jobs' Dressing Down Of Flash

    Decoding Steve Jobs' Dressing Down Of Flash

    Steve Jobs doesn’t blog often, but when he does, it’s always entertaining. Today, Apple’s CEO has taken the time to write a 1,700 word post about why Apple (or perhaps more precisely, he) doesn’t like Adobe Flash. And why Apple doesn’t support it in new products. And more importantly, why Apple won’t support it in new products. The post is full of great… Read More

    Textie: A Handsome, Simple Messaging App From The Guys Behind Tweetie & Borange

    Before Twitter bought Atebits, Loren Brichter was busy. Not only was he hard at work on a follow up to Tweetie for Mac and a version for the iPad, but he had a secret side project that no one knew about. Until now. Meet Textie. Textie is a dead-simple application with one purpose: free and beautiful texting for the iPhone and iPod touch. Given what a complete and utter rip-off traditional… Read More

    Rhapsody App for iPad, iPod touch, & iPhone lets you download music now, no Internet connection required

    Rhapsody, the digital music service, has released an updated App for the iPad, iPod touch, and iPhone. It’s free to download but requires a subscription to use. The big deal here is that not only can you listen to your Rhapsody playlist while connected to the Internet, but you can also download individual songs to local storage. Yes, that means you’ll be able to listen to your… Read More

    Pioneer lets you control its new Blu-ray players with your iPhone

    Pioneer may have shut down its display business to focus on producing more car-related equipment instead, but that doesn’t mean they have given up on the home entertainment segment altogether. In Japan, the company today unveiled a number of new devices actually, including Blu-ray players [JP] that can be controlled with the iPhone/iPod touch. Read More

    Bullet hell shooter Espgaluda II to be released for iPhone

    Bullet hell shooting games (aka maniac shooters) are, according to Wikipedia, shoot ‘em ups “in which the entire screen is often almost completely filled with enemy bullets”. And one of these games is Espgaluda II, developed by Japan-based Cave, released for arcade machines back in 2005 and now one day away of seeing a release in the App Store. Read More
