    Perhaps I'm old curmudgeon at heart, but I like CDs, vinyl, and other forms of physical media. But, I'm in the digital minority. Most people download, pirate, and stream their media needs.

    Yesterday Apple extended everyone the courtesy of ditching physical CDs and DVDs for their retail software as well. It shouldn't come as a shock, Apple announced at WWDC that OS X Lion was going to be a digital download only through their ...

    Well, the rumors were right folks, Apple released OS X Lion, updated the Macbook Airs, and updated the Mac Minis as well. Head to the Mac App Store to download Lion for $29.99 and get the other goodies online or at your nearest Apple Store.

    9to5Mac appears to have been right-on with their spec rumors. The new MacbookAirs and MacMinis appear with the specs below.



    The MacBooks Airs start at $999 ...

    Apple blew the financial world's collective mind once again with the company's third quarter earnings female-dog slapping analysts' estimates once again. How is it possible that a company who makes actual consumer products (leave hedge funds and consumer finance out of this) can actually make this much money without some screwy-louie accounting?

    Amidst all the blown grey matter a small detail emerged alluding ...

    It finally happened. Apple has killed off the white MacBook. The popular option amongst students, and secondary education institutions is no more.

    The move does make sense, the white MB and the new Macbook Airs would have shared the same price point and resulted in competition for consumers' hearts. And as we all know Apple loves pushing new products on consumers, but it also means the Apple line ...

    Apple announced, alongside the new Mac Minis and MacBook Airs, the new 27" Thunderbolt equipped displays ($999).

    The displays sport the same 2560 X 1440 resolution as previous models, are LED backlit and still only available in a GLOSSY screen option. Matte screen lovers will still be disappointed. Everything else seems to be the same, including the ambient light sensor, massive 178 degree viewing ...

    I touched on it before, but July has been a month full of speculation and rampant rumors, and now all of those rumors and speculation can get a little reprieve, for a minute, because ladies and gentlemen the Apple Store is down.

    When the Apple store comes back online expect Lion to be available, as well as a few other little treats. 9to5Mac even dropped a bombshell of specs regarding ...

    Backseat Driver is the perfect solution to let young children feel like their useful while driving and to show annoying backseat drivers just how childish they are acting.

    The simple GPS-based app is the first "toy" released by ToyToyota, and allows kids and those you are punishing, to go for a virtual drive by linking the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad to the current driving route. The ...

    Every week this July rumors swirl that "tomorrow" will be the day Lion is released. Well they're rampant again today, with numerous reports pointing to a Lion launch Wednesday morning.

    According to 9to5Mac Apple stores across the country have received hard drives loaded with Lion and new Lion-themed in-store display materials. Also, as it the usual practice, employees are said to be working an overnight ...

    Anymode's Smart Case has been pulled from Samsung retail stores in Korea, because, well, blatant rip-offs don't get much more blatant than this.

    The case is a near carbon copy of Apple's Smart Cover, which oddly enough is a near carbon copy of InCase's Convertible Magazine Jacket, as pointed out by the guys over at TechCrunch. It seems something like this would get noticed before being ...

    Google Executive chairman Eric Schmidt had some strong words for Apple today at a Google mobile conference in Tokyo when questioned about the recent patent suit against HTC and by extension all Android devices.



    When asked if Google would provide financial support if HTC does in fact lose the suit Schmidt responded, "We will make sure they don't lose, then."

    Schmidt's ...

    CNN announced Monday they will now stream their programming and HLN's programming 24/7 on all CNN iOS apps as well as on CNN.com for desktop users.

    It's a bold and hopefully soon to be copied move for a U.S. news company (BBC beat them to the punch in the u.K.). To be eligible for the unlimited streaming there is a catch, users must have already signed their soul over to a cable company ...

    Amazon left Apple's iBooks in the dust today and unveiled a textbook rental service for students via the company's Kindle e-reader and Kindle apps.

    The service lets students rent textbooks from 30 days to a year, and rental periods can be extended in one-day increments. The service falls under Amazons purchase-once-view-everywhere program. Students can view their highlights, annotations, ...
