    I don't want to leave a "blemish" on the tech-centric tone of these forums, but a lot of people are talking about the iPhone these days as a potential treatment for all sorts of medical ailments, including acne. Although the application that started this discussion was released months ago, only recently have media outlets and iPhone users taken a good look at AcneApp, which was created by a Texas dermatologist ...

    Okay, so they're not the most groundbreaking updates imaginable, but they're important and worth noting nonetheless.

    Supporters of free software picketed the iPad launch last month, designating the Yerba Buena Center For Arts as an "Apple Restriction Zone." The Free Software Foundation was protesting Apple's ongoing efforts to control what can run on its devices through restrictive digital rights management (DRM) and a closed operating system.

    Parts for the 4th gen iPhone have surfaced. And some iPhone obsessed Apple fanatics are peeved that no major design changes appear to be in store for the iPhone's big upgrade, likely planned for early this summer. The "outrage" was sparked by photos freshly posted by iResQ, which claims that their photos reveal a 4th gen iPhone that is almost impossible to distinguish from the present model.

    Okay, so ever since the iPad was announced, people have been scratching their heads - as they've done about tablets for years - to try and figure out what the thing is for.
