Apple Suspects Hardware Espionage

From 9to5Mac: At least part of the driver for this is to ensure that the servers are secure.

Apple Shuts Down Kickstarter Project

It’s a shame Apple killed this Kickstarter project to build a portable charger. These kinds of innovative projects can do wonders of the ecosystem of a product like the iPhone/iPad ecosystem. That said, I’m not sure I totally get the project’s logic. Why not just make it USB and let a user provide their own […]

Google To Release iOS Maps

It sounds like it’s going to become a reality in a few hours: Google Maps for iOS 6. My experience so far with Apple maps hasn’t been terrible. Data quality issues never actually affected me.

I thought it was worth mentioning since I did call them out explicitly on it as a shining example of […]

Goodfellas All Over Again At JFK In iPad Theft

Reading about this theft of iPads from a cargo hanger at JFK. Just like everyone else my mind went immediately to the iconic movie Goodfellas. Who knew this sort of thing would still be an issue in 2012 at JFK?

Why Letterboxed iPhone 5 Drive Me Nuts

For those who haven’t upgraded to the iPhone 5, allow me to illustrate why apps on the iPhone 5 that haven’t been updated are frustrating.

Apple Dropping Intel?

Apple is said to be looking at moving away from Intel on the Mac towards ARM. This of course wouldn’t be unfounded giving the iOS platform is already using ARM. I’m certain Apple already has Mac OS X working on ARM chips for development purposes, just like I’m sure they had Intel versions all the […]
