    Apple Store is back up, features iPhone 3G

    Apple’s online store has come back up and, although the 3G iPhone is featured on the main page, it’s not yet available for pre-order. There’s just a message saying “iPhone will be available in 8GB (black) and 16GB (black or white) models at Apple Retail Stores and AT&T Stores.” The down and dirty blurb-ish text on the new iPhone is as follows: Introducing iPhone… Read More

    .Mac reborn, now mobileme: Sync your life from A to Z

    The following is how TechCrunch’s Erik Schoenfeld interprets today’s announcement of the new .Mac, mobileme. As was widely speculated before Steve Jobs’ keynote address today, Apple is relaunching its .Mac service as mobileme. The service syncs emails, photos, contacts, calendars, and other information between your iPhone and different computers. It works not only on Macs, but… Read More

    Apple’s online store is apparently down worldwide

    Apple might be up to something today because the Apple store, she is down. I wonder why, though? J/K all the way, ROFL! Check out the downed store for yourself here! Leave your guesses in the comments section as to what Apple might release today. I’m hoping for some sweet new stickers, apparel, and coffee mugs. I’d also like an Apple Netbook, an Apple Electric Car, and an Apple Theme… Read More

    YA Rumor: Mac OS X 10.6 to debut at WWDC, will be Intel-only

    Could developers be getting a sneak peak at Mac OS X 10.6 at next week’s WWDC? Maybe! A little birdie told TUAW that Apple could well give developers an early build of 10.6 at the conference in San Francisco. It’s been suggested that 10.6 won’t bring much in the way of new features, but will instead focus on stability and security. That 10.6 could be the first Intel-only Mac OS… Read More

  • Mobile Me the new name for .Mac?

    Mobile Me the new name for .Mac?

    Could “Mobile Me” be the new name for .Mac? That’s what it looks like, at least according to what Blogging Robots (is that name a social statement?) has discovered. Strings in the iPhone 2.0 SDK reveal the name “Mobile Me” left, right and center, as pictured here. More evidence: Apple trademarked the name in 2006. So reasonable minds have concluded that, yes, Mobile… Read More

    More Apple rumors: Dot-Mac to get major revamp, new name at WWDC

    Check this: %@ is the new name of Apple’s online service (was .Mac) This string, found deep within the code for iCal, makes it pretty clear that Apple plans to make some changes to .Mac, its online service, um, service. The $99/year service gives people e-mail, an easy way to share content, sync information between computers, etc. It’s sorta outdated, especially in today’s… Read More

    OMG, 3G iPhone confirmed for June 9, maybe

    Someone, or something, has confirmed to GIZMODO that the 3G iPhone will be released on June 9, the day of the WWDC keynote. (I guess Jobs will be all, “Available… now! Go! Buy, buy buy!”) That’s a more or less worldwide launch date this time, with carriers in other countries able to set the price of the phone and plan, maybe. On a scale of 1-10, how excited are you?

    Rumor: 3G iPhone expected to launch sooner rather than later

    Rumors have been swirling about the launch date of the 3G iPhone since yesterday and I wanted to give it some time to settle down before posting. As he did last year, BGR has his hands on an internal memo to AT&T employees forbidding them to take vacation or PL between June 15 and July 12 (my birthday in case anyone wants to know). This is leading everyone to believe that the iPhone could and… Read More

    ZFS *is* in Leopard–Rejoice!

    ZFS is in, ZFS is out… OK, so now we know that ZFS file system support is in Mac OS X Leopard. The read/write support was just seeded to developers according to reports online and no one but complete nerds will notice unless Apple makes it the default file system. The WWDC build of Leopard still has journaled HFS+ as the default file system. Man oh man, nothing like writing about file… Read More

    Leopard Roadmap: Feature Complete By August, Gold Late September

    The WWDC build of Leopard is all over the Internet and judging by the numerous, illicitly obtained screenshots and video walkthroughs, you can tell it’s still a little rough around the edges. Apple will look to rectify this in the next several months, finishing up development in early September. The Leopard development roadmap has allegedly leaked online, so we can give you a month-by-month… Read More

  • All The Leopard You Could Ask For

    http://admin.brightcove.com/destination/player/player.swf Stacks Like many of you, I’ve chosen to refrain from downloading the leaked Leopard Beta because I’d rather wait for the full-fledged version to be released before pirating it. (DISCLAIMER: We do not endorse piracy!) Anyways, the demo given at WWDC just didn’t whet my appetite and I’m sure most of you will agree. But… Read More

    WWDC Leopard Beta Leaked Onto BitTorrent Site

    It looks like the WWDC beta of Leopard was leaked onto the Oink BitTorrent Web site. (I’m not about to download it, though, that’s for sure.) Here’s a screen shot. And another. And another. That last one made me laugh. Oops! Nobody’s completely downloaded the 6GB file yet, but the site’s forum is red hot with activity and the file already has 205 comments. Choice… Read More

    Wired Almost-Sorta Reviews the Leopard WWDC Beta: Most Impressive

    The WWDC build of Leopard still hasn’t leaked onto the Internet (aside from, perhaps, some super-private BitTorrent trackers), but Wired has a mini-review of the beta. Keeping in mind that Leopard isn’t scheduled to come out until October, Wired basically gave it the Thumbs Up. The brightest spot seems to be the new Finder, which makes browsing around your file system easier. The… Read More

    Leopard WWDC Beta Leaked Then Quickly Un-Leaked: Apple Playing Hardball?

    Apple appears to have used its goons to prevent the unauthorized leak of the newest Mac OS X Leopard beta, build 9A466. Jerks. Someone posted the beta onto the Oink BitTorrent site on Thursday and within six hours “ninjas got to [him].” Users on various Internet sites have taken that to mean that Apple’s lawyers had contacted the leaker, forcing him to kill the torrent. That we… Read More

    If you spent your time yesterday under a rock (lol1) you would have missed Steve Jobs’ keynote. (Good thing, too, because it stunk.) But, for your viewing pleasure, Apple just posted the whole dog and pony show on its Web site. Relive great moments like, uh, when the EA guy comes out in his pajamas and describes Need For Speed: Carbon as a “car game” and when some application… Read More

    WWDC 07: iPhone's 6PM Launch Just Jobs Being Goofy

    Earlier today, during his WWDC 07 Keynote address, Steve Jobs said that the iPhone would be released on June 29, which “is 18 days from now. At, uh, 6PM.” This was said to a chuckle. I’m afraid he was joking, folks. He seemed very “off the prompter” when he said it, as a light-hearted aside. Look for the iPhone to be available when your local AT&T or Apple store… Read More
