    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.

    In a new advertising campaign, which I'm sure has nothing to do with pre-orders for a certain device beginning tomorrow, AT&T is putting forth a last-ditch effort to attempt a mass exodus of iPhone users to Verizon.

    The e-mail, sent to customers, bluntly states that only on AT&T could you "make a call" while you read this email." It is true, AT&T's GSM network does allow for simultaneous voice and data, ...

    "New times demand new journalism," News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch told members of the media gathered in New York City Wednesday morning. Following months of repeated delays, not even blizzard-like conditions across New York would deter today's big launch of The Daily for Apple's iPad.
