    It happens every time Apple announces a new service, or product without fail. A company, already holding or using the name of a newly announced service by Apple, sues the big piece of fruit for copyright or trademark infringement.

    Apple then uses its mountain of money to make the complaints of the small company go away. Well it finally happened with iCoud. A company called iCloud Communications is suing Apple. Here's an excerpt from ...

    A pair of iPhones got the NASA stamp of approval and will be on board Space Shuttle Atlantis for the last shuttle mission ever.

    Eat your heart out Android.

    The iPhones will be running an experimental app developed by Odyssey Space Research (OSR). The app, SpaceLab, will help the crew members conduct experiments using the iphones' cameras, gyroscopes, and accelerometers.

    According ...

    It seems Verizon dwelling Apple folk have had a rough go as of late. Verizon iPhone users are stuck using iOS 4.2.8 with no word from either Verizon or Apple when an update to iOS 4.3.3 will be available. On top of that, they're unable to participate in the iCloud beta.

    But, now it appears a number of would be Verizon iPad 2 owners are having their orders shipped back to China mid-transit. Apple's discussion forums are starting to fill up with complaints ...

    Apple may not own iPad.com, or ipods.com (not that they care, they appear to be phasing it out), but they did wait till the day of the keynote speech at WWDC to register "iospcfree.com" and nearly 50 other domain names associated with Apple products

    How I didn't have the foresight to register "iphonedocumentsinthecloud.com" or "macosxlionconversationreview.com" is beyond me. Can you imagine ...

    Apple has apparently changed a ruled that prevented publishers from charging more for content via the iTunes store than they do outside of Apple's i-ecosystem.

    The rule before the change , which was apparently accepted by a number of publishers, stated that all in-app subscriptions, and purchases could only be available for purchase outside of the iTunes store and outside of iOS applications for the same price ...

    All the noise made earlier this year about a number of iOS apps that alert drivers to DUI checkpoints got Apple's attention. The apps are now explicitly banned by Apple.

    A change in the App Store Review Guidelines was spurred by a letter from four democratic U.S. senators addressing the issue. The senators specifically asked for the removal of apps that provide "a database of DUI checkpoints updated ...

    Those nasty little End User License Agreements we so willingly accept every time a piece of software is updated, or every time we sign up for a new new social media service are paint to read.

    CNET decided to capitalize on this fact, and some negative publicity Apple got earlier this year involving their EULA, by having Richard Dreyfuss do a dramatic reading of Apple's EULA. The results are pretty ...

    The first question that popped into my head after it was revealed that Lion would be a download only upgrade was "what if I need a boot disk?"

    I've had too many hard drives crash, and had to reinstall too many operating systems to do without a physical boot disk. Plus I've never been one to tote around an external bootable hard drive. Thankfully creating a Lion boot disk is quite painless.

    The Financial Times is sticking it to Apple and releasing their HTML 5 web app to circumvent Apple's 30 percent cut of in-app subscriptions.

    Good for them.

    Steve Jobs and Apple's touting of HTML 5 as the future of the interwebs could come back to haunt them as HTML 5 and cloud computing matures. The browser app is already incredibly functional on both the iPhone and iPad and will be just as functional on other mobile browsing platforms ...

    GSM iPhone owners (AT&T, and pretty much everyone else in the world) are currently enjoying the beta version of iCloud running on their iPhones. Verizon users, not so much.

    In order to utilize the cloud based iTunes functions iPhone users need to have iOS version 4.3.3. Verizon iPhone users are stuck in a 4.2.8 nightmare. The reasons for Verizon iPhones lagging behind AT&T ...

    There is nothing better than winning. Well, maybe winning again. And again. And if you did that in Stockholm Sweden you would enter cardiac arrest.

    Only you and Charlie Sheen could then proclaim that you accomplished so much "Win" that you ultimately lost.

    You see, in Stockholm there is an interactive billboard iPhone users, and I imagine other smartphone users, can access ...

    Apple debuted the first iPhone at WWDC 2007 and has typically used the conference to unveil new hardware products like subsequent versions of the iPhone and now the iPad. This year they didn't and here is I think why.

    Apple pulled a rather unceremonious move and pre-announced their announcements, letting the public know they were going to talk about Lion, iOS 5, and iCloud. Some thought it was damage control ...
