    In a follow-up to the announcement that Verizon has run out of its initial supply of pre-orders of the iPhone 4 for current Verizon Wireless customers, Verizon has also announced that the device set a first-day sales record for the company. More amazingly, it broke the record in two hours.

    Verizon stopped taking pre-orders around 8 PM last night. However, the record sales all occurred between 3 and 5 AM Eastern Time. ...

    Put it in the "maybe someday, maybe never" file. A patent originally filed for by Apple in 2008 shows the company's work on a unique stylus for touchscreen devices. Although Steve Jobs has been famously dismissive of styluses, this one is pretty different: equipped with a pivoting disk on the tip, pressure sensors, and even an accelerometer, it could enable new applications in digital art and gaming. ...

    It's deja vu all over again. With a long history of product shortages underlying the launch of new and updated Apple products, Verizon iPhone preorders have already officially sold out. Not too shabby, given that preorders commenced fewer than twenty-four hours ago at 3:00 a.m. EST.

    Naturally, some are using this situation - as though we didn't ...

    Devs around the web are reporting that earlier this morning, the GM of Xcode 4 was released to devs. There seemed to be one very strange aspect to this download however, the documentation of the GM said it required Mac OS X Lion to run. The release was very quickly pulled right back down, and there's no word when it'll be popping back up.

    Well then, since the only Mac updates available for Mac have ...

    Apparently inadvertent comments by a couple of journalists have fed speculation that the iOS 4.3 will drop in in a week to ten days. Articles by Wall Street Journal and New York Times writers both mentioned February 13 as the day AT&T will support Personal Hotspot tethering on its version of the iPhone, which would require a firmware upgrade. The date has since been deleted from both reviews, but other ...

    Last week, Apple faced harsh criticism for not playing nicely with the Sony Reader App. As you may recall, Apple effectively blocked Sony Corp's electronic book application from the App Store because the application would have circumvented Apple's system for buying content. “We have not changed our developer terms or guidelines,” Apple spokesperson Trudy Miller said in response to the Sony app's unceremonious ...

    Getting the most out of your device is one of the main reasons we all jailbreak. However, with such a large amount of Apps and Tweaks, there are a few that stand out as not just everyday tweaks, but rather, the more unique tweaks that really modify the way the device performs. There are obviously too many to list, so here are a few to get you started, I'm sure the community will contribute more

    Move LockScreen To Unlock
    Pretty much exactly as the tweak name suggests, this one will allow you to simply swipe, or flick the LockScreen away to reveal your SpringBoard. It's ...

    A provocative report from investment firm Piper Jaffray suggests that Apple may finally be gearing up to introduce an entirely new product as soon as 2012. According to the suspicions of Piper and prominent analyst Gene Munster, Apple will likely use its recent $3.9 billion in component investments to develop large screen displays, probably for a connected Apple television set of at least ...

    A document on Verizon's website reveals plans to begin throttling the throughput of customers who use an "extraordinary amount" of data. The PDF, called "Important Information about Verizon Wireless Data Plans and Features," announces two new "network management practices" that it is implementing to deal with the expected surge in traffic caused by new iPhone users: "optimizing" content and limiting heavy ...

    AT&T announced today that they will be extending its DataPro + Tethering Mobile Internet plan for smartphones from 2 GB to 4 GB. This news comes as a pleasant surprise, particularly for current iPhone users who are looking jealously at Verizon's unlimited data + 2GB tethering plans.

    The change will take affect February 13th, and comes out just as AT&T prepares to launch their first 4G phone, as well their well-documented ...
