    For the third time since announcing it in June, Apple has pushed back the release of the white iPhone 4, now saying we won't see it until spring 2011. In an apologetic statement, an Apple spokeswoman continued the official silence about the delays, declining comment. Guesses have ranged from discoloration of the Home button to backlight leakage around the bezel, and a new report out today asserts the issue ...

    Who’s a bigger threat to Nintendo, Microsoft or Apple? According to Nintendo the answer is clearly Apple. Nintendo has seen declining sales in recent years and Apple is clearly to blame. The mighty Nintendo once had the lion’s share of the portable gaming market, but that is no longer the case.

    When Apple blasted onto the scene with the App Store, Nintendo was unprepared for its immediate success. Nintendo has dealt with competitors in the past, ...

    The results of a survey claiming that 32% of iPad owners had never downloaded an app caused a bit of controversy over the last week, with the usual suspects claiming that nobody uses iPads anyway. Today, the research firm Nielsen quietly updated its report with a new chart, which shows fewer than 9% still have only the preloaded apps. Oops.

    The Nielsen Company, which is a global marketing and ...

    Look, it's a box

    What could be inside?

    Apple always has classy packaging

    It looks like every other apple notebook

    Mag strip, papers, ya know

    Macbook Air Software Reinstall Drive

    Admit it, this little thing is badass, forget those ridiculous DVDs

    It's thin

    A recently discovered lockscreen glitch may force Apple to push out a firmware upgrade ahead of the arrival of iOS 4.2 next month. [UPDATE: Apparently not, an Apple spokeswoman told Wired.com that “We’re aware of this issue and we will deliver a fix to customers as part of the iOS 4.2 software update in November.”] The bug - which allows anyone to do things like make ...

    It's an eye-opening headline for certain, and one that's making the rounds throughout various media today, as Apple is believed to be considering a strategic acquisition of Sony. For now, we must responsibly classify this one as a rumor until more concrete evidence surfaces. But with better than $50 billion in the bank, Apple can certainly afford the logical buy. But just because Apple can... doesn't ...

    According to early benchmark results of the new MacBook Air line, it would appear that tradeoff of speed versus portability is still significant but less dramatic than it was in previous models. Primate Labs, the devs behind Geekbench, took a look at the new 13-inch MacBook Air and found it faster than the previous Air models but slower than the 13-inch MacBook Pro. The all-new "mini" MBA, though, is still ...

    At the "preview" of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion last week, Steve Jobs covered some of the more visible changes in the OS, such as the Mission Control window switcher and full screen apps. As the days go on and observers analyze what was shown and said, increasing focus is being put on what was not discussed. One significant change includes a more iOS-like way of handling programs, allowing you to "pick up where you left off" ...

    Through the years, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs (and, consequently, Microsoft and Apple) have seemingly enjoyed a cordial public relationship despite the intense competition that remains between the two tech giants. And while Melinda Gates - Bill's wife - has long stated publicly that there are no iPods or iPhones inside the Gates' home, persistent rumors have lingered this year regarding Bill Gates breaking down ...

    Apple released the Review Guidelines for the new Mac App Store last week, and it's a mixed bag. There's no reference to needing to have apps signed with Apple's root certificate, so it looks like we will dodge the bullet of signed binaries. However, there's a long list of restrictions, including one on "deprecated or optionally-installed technologies" that explicitly excludes Java.
