  • A Mid-Summer Trip To The Apple Rumor Mill

    A Mid-Summer Trip To The Apple Rumor Mill

    It’s almost that time of year again, friends. New movies are terrible, kids are sucking down popsicles and my office is like a moist toaster oven. It’s nearly back to school time! That means in our little trivial world that it’s time for new gadgets and the Internet rumor mill is lining up quite a big showing from Apple. Of course it’s always this way. The rumors… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: 8GB iPod Touch For $185 Shipped


    Quick! You’ve got three and a half hours (as of my writing this) to pick up a new iPod touch at this solid price — $185 is $45 off the normal $230. 8GB isn’t a lot of space, to be sure, but for a dedicated streaming music and app machine, this is a great deal. Head over to eBay’s daily deal page to pick one up. [via 9to5Mac] Read More

  • The Second Generation Yosion Peel Brings More 3G Fun To The iPod Touch

    Yosion is back with the Apple Peel 520. Just like the first device, the Apple moniker is a bit of a lie. You see this device is not made nor endorsed by Jobs & Co. If anything, it’s lawyer bait as it transforms the iPod touch into a fully-functional iPhone. The second generation goes a bit farther than just bringing 3G calling to the device. Yeah, you’re going to like this. Read More

  • Many iPhone App Downloads Jumped 2-3X On Christmas

    It’s beginning to look like Apple may have had a very, very merry Christmas. Not that it should surprise anyone given how many of their products were on year-end “best-of” lists. But some data that has started to come in over the past few days points to Apple’s Christmas surge once again being led by the mainstays: the iPhone and iPod touch (and probably the iPad as… Read More

  • Survey: Kids Want iOS Devices Instead Of Consoles This Year

    Well this is potentially huge. A Nielsen survey says that more kids this holiday season are interested in iOS devices than traditional consoles. You know what this means: time to throw your PS3s and Xbox 360s into the village pyre. Read More

  • Blue's Mikey: The Big, Nice Microphone For iPods/iPhones

    While I rarely am able to get out to tape Dead shows anymore – what with most of the the band-members being dead themselves – this would have been a great help back when I was shipping reel-to-reels all over the country with little notes saying “Check out Ripple on this one. Man, you can hear Jerry’s stomach rub up against the mic stand.” It’s basically a… Read More

  • All Right, Apple, Let's Talk About The iPod Touch's Camera

    I’ve been putting this post off for a while, since I decided at the launch of the new iPod touch that I would give Apple the benefit of the doubt and not pursue this particular issue, since hey, it was Apple’s special day, and I didn’t want to spoil it by nagging them. But as CrunchGear’s resident non-expert on imaging devices and sensors, I just have to ask: what the… Read More

  • VLC For iPhone And iPod Touch Imminent

    Good news for iOS users: versatile video app VLC has been submitted to the App Store as a universal app, and I see no reason why it should be rejected. Expect to join your iPad brethren in playing a variety of video files without the need to jailbreak or part with your hard-earned gold pieces. Read More

  • Beer Gardens NYC iOS App Helps NYers Find Beer Gardens In Time For Oktoberfest Fun

    It’s October 1, which means that you’re average American think Oktoberfest has started. Not true: Munich’s Oktoberfest begins in mid to late September and lasts through October. A minor technicality if all you’re looking to do is celebrate the holiday best known for, well, bier and busen. In any event, there’s a handy iOS App that was just released that can help… Read More

  • Fancy Moleskin iPhone & iPad Cases Prompt Question: What Do You Look For In A Case?

    So here’s an honest question: how do you guys go about looking for and buying an iPhone/iPad/iPod touch case? Do you go to device-specific sites (like iLounge) and look up case reviews? Troll message boards? Search on Amazon for “iphone case”? Or do you go to Wal-Mart (or wherever), go to the iPhone aisle, and pick up the first thing you see? I haven’t bought a case… Read More

  • iPod Touch: No Vibration, Only 256MB Of RAM, Slightly Inferior Screen

    The teardowns and close-lookings-at of the new iPod touch have revealed a few things. First, there actually is no vibrating motor, as thought earlier, and second, the new iPod touch has half of the iPhone 4’s RAM at 256MB. What does this mean? Read More

  • Are You Getting New iStuff This Season?


    With reviews trickling out of the new iGear, I wonder if anyone is actively updating and why? Do you need another iPod Touch right now? Are you really going to wear the Nano on your wrist? And you’re lying if you say you’re getting a Nano because only crazy people buy Nanos. Thoughts? I’ve added a little Twitter comment box below so start commenting. I think I’ll get… Read More

  • Review: iPod Touch, iPod Nano, and iPod Shuffle

    I remember my first iPod very well. Shockingly, I was a little late to the party, waiting until the fourth generation iPod (now called the “iPod classic”) in 2004 to join the revolution. And I only bought one because I was planning to drive out to California (from Ohio) and I wanted enough music storage to last me the entire trip. I remember unboxing it and thinking: “wow, I… Read More

  • iPod Touch Has a Vibrating Motor For Facetime Calls

    This just in: the new iPod Touch with front-facing camera (aka the iPhone Lite) has a built-in vibrating motor for notifications, including silent call notifications. Why is this important? Well, presumably the iPod Touch is now a Facetime phone and definitely needs new ways to interact with the user. I’m personally very excited. Read More
