    DDoS attacks by Anonymous have received no shortage of attention in recent months. And now it appears that Sony, and ...

    Intel's announcement of a new generation of ultra low voltage CPUs is prompting speculation that Apple may bring Sandy Bridge-based MacBook Airs this year. In addition to a currently-available Core i5 with a clockrate of 1.4 GHz and turbo boost speeds of up to 2.3 GHz, Intel has Core i7 chips coming in the next few months that can turbo up to 2.7 GHz with a thermal power envelope of only 17 watts.

    And there's photographic evidence to back up the claim. ...

    Apple today released iAd Gallery, and iOS app that Apple calls "a celebration of advertising." To call this app ‘ad supported’ would be quite an understatement. iAd Gallery's sole purpose is to showcase Apple's struggling iAd advertising service and act as a creative launching point for potential clients.

    Although the iAd Gallery app is nothing more than a revolving door of ad campaigns, it is still ...

    Consumer Reports has a spotty history when it comes to backing Apple products (iPhone 4 'death grip' should ring a bell), but the long-time consumer advocate publication isn't reserved in the slightest when it comes to propping up Apple's second generation iPad as the overall best tablet computer on the market today.

    Following the release of PwnageTool and redsn0w for iOS 4.3.1, users are noticing that a number of popular apps and tweaks aren't working properly. The list is short but growing, and anyone who relies on packages like Backgrounder or ActionMenu should probably consider ...
