    Jelly rolls (Swiss rolls), are typically found in your standard cylindrical rechargeable AA D batteries. Anode and cathode material is laid down and divided by a separator, then rolled up into a hollow cylinder in the design.

    Apple is becoming notorious for accidentally leaking photos of future products on their website, with the most recent flub up involving a picture of a 3G enabled iPod Touch.

    An iDownloadblog reader spotted on Apple's website the above image displaying a 3G signal indicator on what is obviously an iPod Touch. The web exploded with the information shortly after, and Apple noticed, ...

    Apple's plan for a Grand Central Station Apple store is awaiting final approval by the New York Metropolitan Transportation authority board Wednesday, but the renderings the MTA showed the Wall Street Journal are jaw dropping.

    The renders show an Apple Store that leaves the terminal's structure largely unchanged. The juxtaposition of early 1900's architecture and Apple's cutting edge modern products is almost ...

    The almighty Apple has dropped the e-book bomb on e-reader applications for iOS forcing Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Canada-based Kobo to alter in-app purchases in their applications.

    All three companies have altered their apps to fall in line with Apple's new requirements regarding in-app subscriptions. Before the new agreement companies could put links in their apps sending users to an external site to sign ...

    Apple's new operating system OS X Lion sold more than 1 million copies Wednesday, making it the fastest selling OS in Apple history.

    Previously it took Leopard a month to sell two million copies and Snow Leopard an entire weekend to do the same. Apparently any speculation that digital downloads would hurt sales of Apple's newest operating system were completely and utterly wrong. ...

    Thankfully, just like the previous MacBook Airs, the new 2011 models have user replaceable hard drives.

    There was much speculation that Apple would start soldering the SSDs to the MBA's logic board in the newer models, but this isn't the case and allows users install their own SSD solution. While Apple's SSD upgrades aren't crazy silly expensive, the SSDs Apple uses are far ...

    Three years of development later the iControlPad's promise of turning your iPhone into a competent gaming device has finally been realized. Sort of.

    The product is finally shipping, and doesn't require the suction-cup joysticks that take up half the screen to improve your gaming abilities. Rather, the device looks like the product of some hot Gameboy on GameGear action. The ...

    Shipments of Nokia smartphones declined by 34 percent to 16.7 million units this past quarter, while Apple's shipments cruised past estimates to settle at 20.3 million ...

    According to Digitimes Apple has already shipped 400,000-500,000 third generation MacBook Airs.

    How fast can they make these things?

    Digitime's source said volume is expected to remain strong throughout july and August, no doubt because of back-to-school sales.



    In Apple's latest quarterly filing the company reported shipments of 3.95 million Macs. MACS, not just ...

    The change from Intel's Core 2 Duo processors to Intel's new SandyBridge Core i5 processors did more than a little good for the new MacBook Airs. The new processors equaled nearly two times the performance in the new MBAs according to Geekbench results from LaptopMag.

    This year's 13" 1.7Ghz i5 MBA scored 5860 on the Geekbench benchmark compared to last year's score of 2,681. Thats more ...
