    Like tickets to a major sporting event or the latest video game system release, a hot ticket in town always brings out the scalpers. In China, however, the scalpers are out in full force with one primary target in sight - prospective iPhone 4 buyers. As a result, Apple has been put on the spot to address this growing problem. And they have.

    Released just days ago, the iPhone ...

    It looks like the next big-box store to get the iPad will be Walmart. Last May, Walmart stated that it was planning on offering the iPad in time for the holiday shopping season. Now, it appears that Walmart will be offering all six versions of the iPad beginning next week, along with accessories and AppleCare. Each store is said to be getting five units of each model per store.

    Walmart is largest ...

    Let's face it. If not for the coffee shops and cozy reading lounges within some of the world's biggest book retailers, many of us would spend a lot less time in those locations reading books. For this reason it makes sense that Apple is said to be considering a comparable "lounge" concept for some of its retail locations.

    Given that Microsoft's retail store in Mission Viejo, California ...

    There's much talk in response to the latest published patent application from our friends at Patently Apple, which reveals that the next generation iPad may come with the MagSafe power connector built in.

    While Apple is no stranger to patent litigation, the prospect of a looming judgment is ample enough to make even Steve Jobs get a lump in his throat. According to multiple published reports, Apple is looking at a whopping $625.5 million judgment against Mirror Worlds regarding "alleged patent infringement" related to Spotlight, Time Machine and Cover Flow.

    If Apple had proven unsuccessful this week in ...

    The new Apple TV, after having been available for only a week, is backordered on Apple's online store with delays of 1-2 weeks, and is sold out in many stores across the US. Looking at these sales, an analyst with JMP Research is predicting a run rate of 4 million units sold per year, and saying the low price of $99 is "resonating with customers."

    Just what Apple needs - more money. That's the thought on the minds of some Apple critics today, with the opposite reaction, of course, being true of die-hard Apple fans thrilled with the company's growing success and stature within the sphere of mobile gadgets now largely dominated by the Cuprtino titan.

    The latest patent application to be discovered deals with very specific issues: preventing changes in voltage supply on an LCD display from affecting the touchscreen, and for saving power when touch is not needed. The idea of a touchscreen that changes from being ...
