    Three-hundred dollars for an iOS application? I don't think I've ever paid more than $10 for an App. Most-Expensive.net has put together a list of the most expensive iPad apps. Thinking about it clogs the arteries of my frugal heart. Also, it made me wonder whats the most members of the ModMyi community have paid for an iOS app?

    In an effort to save money, and weight, Alaska Airlines is issuing iPads to their pilots instead of the 25 pounds of paper flight manuals they are required to carry when they fly.

    So does that 25 pounds of paper count as carry-on or what?

    AA will be the first major domestic airline to make the switch to completely electronic manuals. Now don't think this is some custom made app that ...

    Laundry is the bane of every college student's existence. DryerBro aims to make living in a house with four barely breathing roommates a little more bearable.

    The app is simple, and effective. Users simply set the iPhone on top of the dryer, select the "bros" to call or text when the dryers done, and start the app. DryerBro utilizes the iPhone's accelerometer to detect the dryer's movement, and when it stops moving ...

    Unprecedented. Unthinkable. Unfathomable.

    Angry Birds has been dethroned as the "Top Paid App," in the iTunes App Store for three straight days. The culprit? A five fingered thief as puzzling as it is dastardly, The Heist.

    The puzzle games Heist was downloaded over 25,000 times in its first day of release for $.99 a pop, enough to move ahead of Angry Birds. Day two was even more impressive, ...

    Based on observations collected form 16 individuals who owned iPads for two months, the study found performing basic functions on a number of hand picked iPad apps and websites proved difficult.

    Geekaphone produces some crazy interesting articles and info graphics on their mobile phone blog. However, their new mobile speed test ups the digital ante for the rest of us.

    There are tons of Mobile Speed Test applications, and programs wandering around in the cold bitter wilderness that is the internets, but none are as social as Geekaphones. Seriously. Being able to brag to my friends about something my ...

    Remember the kid who made upwards of $100,000 selling white iPhone mod kits to thousands of people, including Steve Wozniak himself?

    Well so does Apple, and they're lowering their Thor-like gavel of justice upon the poor kid's head. And his family too.

    The recently filed suit against the New York teenager, Fei Lam, and his parents, claims Lam infringed and diluted "Apple's famous ...

    This month's issue of Consumer Reports has Apple notebooks ranked at, or near the top of every notebook category (small, 13", 15" and 17").
