    It's unlikely that many die-hard Apple fans will relocate to Germany on account of this... but some may consider it. Germany, it seems, is the place to be to effortlessly get your hands on a new iPhone 4 (or iPhone 3GS ) that's unlocked and without a contract. As of today, German iPhone customers have what many in the US have been clamoring for - the loss of carrier exclusivity and the arrival ...

    For Verizon fans, today is the big day. As of Thursday morning, Apple is now selling the iPad through Verizon, marking the first iDevice relationship with a carrier other than AT&T in the US. An equally important point worth noting - although one that has taken a backseat to the Verizon headline - is that AT&T is also selling the iPad through its retail stores starting today.

    Here's ...

    There's an unconfirmed report out today claiming that Apple is working with a major SIM card maker to build an integrated chip directly into the device that would eliminate the need for carrier SIMs. This would let Apple do an end-around not only on carriers - enabling customers to buy phones directly from Apple and then activate their phones on the App Store with the carrier of their choice - but also ...

    Following days of rumors about the almost-mythical white iPhone 4, the model has suddenly been pulled off the online Apple Store, prompting a fresh flood of rumors that it has been cancelled. Though images of the device still appear in the iPhone gallery, the disappearance of any direct reference to the model adds credence to reports that Apple will at least hold off on white iPhones until the release ...

    Yesterday, Apple briefly approved Dos emulation app iDos, but then quickly pulled it after discovering users could access the entire iOS file system. Apple does not allow developer’s access to the iOS file system from within apps. This kind of access requires users jailbreak their devices first. The app was a steal at just $0.99 and was universal as well. iDos on the iPad, recreated the look and feel of a twenty-year-old beige PC and included realistic details ...

    One of the significant limitations of the smaller MacBook Air is the storage space: only 64GB and 128GB options are available. Fortunately, this is one of the few truly user-upgradable options on the new models, and a third-party vendor has already stepped up with a solution. PhotoFast is announcing 128GB and 256GB SSD upgrades with improved controllers that let them claim a 30% performance increase compared ...

    Well, here's a headline most could have seen coming.

    It turns out that Apple has once again released a tremendously popular product that has experienced such overwhelming initial demand that supplies are already seeing lag times in shipping. Such is the case for the new 11-inch MacBook Air. And while the estimated shipping time hasn't grown by much, it has still grown. And some think ...

    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 ...

    So a new Macbook Air showed up a minute ago at the door. Decided to take a few pics and make some basic observations while unboxing

    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

    Really, it's thin (next to 13" Macbook Pro)

    Looks a lot like ...

    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 ...
