Several weeks ago, we revisited the complaint from many Snow Leopard users that their files would be deleted from the home directory after logging into a guest account. At the time, Apple said it was looking into the matter and would have a proposed fix in the near future.
Tonight, the future has arrived, as Apple has unveiled its latest Snow Leopard update - a security patch that aims to fix a plethora of issues while simultaneously enhancing
It's just been announced that Google will buy the world's largest mobile advertising provider: Admob. The online search giant will buy out AdMob's stock which at current prices would total $750 million.

There had been some rumors and speculation in recent weeks that Verizon's next round of holiday "attack ads" would take aim at Apple, iPhone jailbreakers, and, of course, AT&T. For now, however, it seems that Verizon is just going to focus on coverage claims against AT&T.

Despite AT&T taking legal action, Verizon isn't pulling punches, even as AT&T claims that Verizon is misleading consumers with wild accusations about AT&T's less-than-stellar 3G coverage area.

Apple TV users enjoying the recently released Apple TV 3.0 update are being advised by Apple to install the latest update, if they haven't done so already.
Although the release was out days ago, the company is concerned that not enough users are aware of it or taking quick advantage of its availability. Multiple news outlets and blogs today are covering Apple's push to get everyone to revisit the last update.
The LogMeIn Ignition app takes the popular remote access program's convenience and ease of use, and makes it available on your iPhone.

Apple wants our business for the holidays. And it shows.
Apple has unveiled "The Reserve And Pick Up" program for its retail stores that gives consumers the opportunity to go online and select their Apple product(s), make a reservation, and then sometime between December 15 and 24, come into their local Apple store to pick up the goods just in time for the holidays.
