    Reports have surfaced from the Swedish website Slashat.se that a question was emailed to Apple all the way from Sweden that posed a simple question: Can the WiFi-only iPad be tethered to the iPhone?


    Apparently, that one-word email response came directly from Steve Jobs himself via his iPhone.

    Since the iPad's announcement, many iPhone owners have curiously pondered ...

    In a daring theft early Thursday morning, burglars cut a hole in the roof of a Best Buy, used climbing gear to rappel down 16 feet and snatched twenty MacBooks without touching the floor, which would have set off an alarm. South Brunswick, New Jersey police said that the break-in - which has caused a net-wide shortage of Mission: Impossible references - earned the criminals $26,000 worth of Apple laptops.

    Last month, Google acquired reMail, the startup that had developed a well-regarded app to do full-text searches of all the mail on your iPhone.

    There may be reason to think that a Mac app store could be in the works. The speculation about such a development ensued after Apple suddenly instituted a single low price for developer licenses. Retiring the old and much more expensive tiered system, Apple is now believed to be working on a Mac App Store to follow the trail blazed by the iTunes App Store.

    The logical inference, ...

    Cydia is serving up a wicked cool new app that a lot of people are talking about. Dubbed "LastApp," the application enables users to conveniently and quickly switch between the last two apps running on your iPhone. Some have called the app an "Alt-Tab" for the iPhone.

    Best of all, LastApp supports "shaking." So, needless to say, one can toggle between two applications by shaking their ...

    Apple has unexpectedly removed a number of utility apps that detect WiFi networks, and even the developers of those apps are unclear as to the reason why Apple suddenly finds them so unacceptable. According to a report in Softpedia, WiFi stumblers like WifiTrak, WiFiFoFum, yFy Network Finder, WiFi Get, eWifi, and WiFi Analyzer vanished from the App Store overnight. The reason given was that ...

    Incredible but true, there are now more books available through Apple’s App Store than there are games.

    According to Mobclix, the App Store currently offers (roughly) 26,500 books, about 19% of the total apps available. Conversely, only 25,000 games are available - 18% of the App Store’s total volume. It's the first time that the game category has been bumped to second place.

    And, believe it or not, ...

    It appears last night that Saurik has updated APT, which now has an optimized cache generator and has become more error tolerant in repository parsing. This means less error screens when connecting to repositories that might have an error at that particular moment, which used to end up causing Cydia users a ton of grief, sometimes even crashing them out of Cydia. This update should ...

    In a comment that surprised industry insiders and pundits alike, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson today downplayed the use of 3G on the soon-to-be-released iPad, calling it a mainly "Wi-Fi driven product." Apple CEO Steve Jobs had made much mention of the fact that the iPad will have a 3G compatible model and touted AT&T's iPad-only 3G subscription plans at the product announcement in January. However, Reuters ...
