  • iPhone Is Too Cool For School

    While I was exploring MacWorld 2007 in San Francisco, I finally ventured into a little area where the iPhone slumbered in its own little case. After fighting through the crowd of golems and hobbits to get closer to the phone, I finally got to take some close up shots of the sexiest cell phone I’ve ever seen. Everything on the iPhone looks top notch, but can anyone say smudge/scratch central? Read More

  • Mac Found In Temple Ruins Of The East

    OK, so maybe these two little gems weren’t found in ruins, but they might as well have seeing as how Mac case mods as extravagant as this one aren’t seen too often. While I was venturing the Moscone Center North Hall for the MacWorld Expo, I ran across these two bad boys at a MacMod booth. The people working there were selling this “Necromac II” at an auction. At the time… Read More

  • Apple iPhone FAQ

    Just got done with an interview with some folks from Cingular on the iPhone and they tipped their hand just enough for us to compile a quick FAQ on the parasitic relationship that is the Apple-Cingular partnership. Read More

  • UPDATE: Cisco and Apple DIDN'T Make a Deal on the iPhone Name

    When Apple wants something, Apple gets DOESN’T it. According to ZDNet, Apple got a call early yesterday morning to the effect of: The fact is that we have not received the approved agreement back from Apple as late as this morning. What we said in our statement, which you posted, was that we sent them the final terms on Jan. 8 and by the fact that they launched the iPhone on Jan. 9… Read More

  • Apple's iPhone: Fiction From Fact

    So it’s out, it’s real, it’s expensive. We now know all the facts regarding iPhone, so we can now turn the focus of the rumor mill to Transformer’s movie scuttlebutt. But in the aftermath of the debut of the “ultimate digital device”, we learn that much of the dirt we’d heard on the handset is bogus. Let’s have a look at a few of the near… Read More

  • Nokia on iPhone: WTF!?

    Nokia’s vice president of the N-series musicphones computers, Pekka Pohjakallio, got real-time word of the launch of the iPhone earlier today. What does he have to say about it at CES? “…It is a 2G device, not 3G, which was a surprise to me.” Thanks, Mr. Pahjakallio for putting voice to the complete “Wait, WHAT!?” that we’re collectively thinking. Now… Read More

  • Apple's Extremes Airport Extreme

    . That 802.11n in the latest Mac’s wont be so lonely, as it supports up to 5x the speeds of the current APX. Unlike the conical Airports of yore, there is no dial-up modem, so it’s perhaps time to upgrade your connection to the rest of the world. Also included is a bevy of wireless security protocols, so you can take your pic. Of course it works with AppleTV, and iPhone. We imagine… Read More

  • It's Called MacWorld Still, Right?

    , Steve!? Really, I love the new products. And the name change from Apple Computer to Apple, Inc. is great, too. But what about Leopard? What about new portables? What about 8-way MacPros? What about the Macs? Or are we going to see “one more thing” later in the week? Steve? Read More

  • It's Still the iPhone?!


    Holy crap! After an unfathomable amount of speculation culminating recently in the release of iPhone products from Linksys, Apple has finally dropped the ball on the holy grail of the tech industry: the Apple iPhone. The device blends style and functionality into one groundbreaking device. It features a full touchscreen interface and is powered by OS X. It supports Widgets, Safari, Google… Read More

  • Wall Street Journal Reports Cingular Scores iPhone Tomorrow

    iChat Mobile rumor, though this is one we’ve heard before: the device will launch with Cingular. Now, we think Cingular has launched its wad with its new Treo 750, and that this is bullcrap. But it is the WSJ, and we’re not one to argue with anyone who features people as stipple drawings, so we’ll open another beer.

  • Apple Set to Launch New Airport Gear

    What good are all the 802.11n draft WiFi cards Apple has been hiding in its latest Macs if you don’t have a base station to go along with them? Sure, there are non-Apple base stations you could go for, but if you’re a hardcore Maclover, you want the real deal. That’s why we’re relatively certain that this week at MacWorld (if not tomorrow) we’ll be introduced… Read More

  • What Does Markoff Know?


    Just saw an article by John Markoff on a potential “mobile computer” to be announced “tomorrow” by “Apple” at “MacWorld.” He’s couched it in so much mystery that it almost seems that he knows something — but then again. What say ye? Industry executives and competitors believe that Apple has developed the first of a new generation… Read More
