    Below is an image of Apple's PR headquarters:

    The unveiling of the iPhone four nearly a year ago encompassed all of the usual Apple spectacle. New features, new design, and of course the two available colors: black and white. However, on launch day there was no white iPhone. Apple cited minor delays and that the phone would be available soon.

    Then it was delayed again.

    And again.

    Apple apparently was struggling with production Alchemy. Except it didn't involved gold, rather it involved white paint and ultra ...

    We have an exclusive leaked copy of the AT&T customer service protocol for tomorrow's white iPhone 4 launch.

    The document contains a list of "Critical Must Knows/Dos for Local Dealer Locations." The highlight of all this confidential information is the fact current iPhone 4 users still under the 30 day BRE policy can exchange their current black iPhone 4 for a brand new white one. The exchanged device must be "in like-new condition with ...

    Apple's announcement of the white iPhone 4's release tomorrow may not be an earth-shattering revelation as much as it is a relief to some. However, ifixit has an interesting mod for the hardware-tinkering inclined: the clear iPhone 4 back.

    Ifixit rates the mod as an easy install. I would beg to differ. Anytime I've had to take apart my mackbook, or iPhone, I end up losing one of the impossibly small screws (torx, proprietary, ...

    Apple issued a formal response to the Locationgate/iMhere/iGiveupNamingThisThing scandal this morning, admitting the storing of the location cache went too far and the "bug" will be fixed in an upcoming software update. Well it wasn't an outright admission.

    This is Apple after all, and this is as close as we'll get to them saying "We #$^#@& up."

    The press release opens with a blanket statement that seems to absolve Apple of all guilt. ...

    Patently Apple is reporting the Canadian Intellectual Property Office published Apple's official notice of abandonment of the "POD" trademark.

    This comes after seven long years of litigation attempting to secure "POD" as an Apple trademark. In the wake of the iPod's popularity Apple fought to keep third party manufacturers from cannibalizing the "POD" trademark. Also, it prevented competitors from branding ...

    In my brief time here on the planet I've noticed a few things about iPod nano users. They tend to be young chic females sporting leggings and oversized sweatshirts while sloshing around campus in Ugg boots. Or they're like my roommate: A twenty something workout fanatic from Wisconsin who needs a pair of "buds" in his ears during any moment of physical exertion. Woot!.com currently has a deal that would make him spit ...

    Hunch.com released an unscientific study profiling the differences between 388,315 self described Mac and PC users. Their findings confirm what most of us already assumed: Mac users are city dwelling, liberal hipster socialites, with a penchant for the finer things in life like drinking Boylan’s Root Beer to wash down their hummus and vegetarian Shawarma while watching an episode of The Office, the funniest show on Television.

    PC users rather are suburb sitting, Harley ...

    It turns out Cupertino’s Apples are pretty rotten.

    Greenpeace released a study today (it is earth day), How Dirty is Your Data? In the study Greenpeace examines several of the top tech companies energy footprint in regards to their data centers. Apple ranks among the dirtiest.

    Apple’s clean energy index was the lowest in the study at 6.7 % while maintaining the highest dependency on coal with their coal intensity being 54.5%. Apple’s brand new $1 billion ...
