    Apple went on an Easter Egg hunt. And the result is clear. The boys and girls from Cupertino don't like "Easter Eggs" - added, or dare I say "secret" funtionalities not overtly stated in the app's description or illustrated in the app's submission.

    As with previous examples of developers who tried to sneak one past Apple, Camera+, a hugely popular iPhone camera app, has been yanked from the App Store for ...

    Earlier this week, Paul reported on Apple securing a license for exclusive use of a new, strong, and flexible alloy for use in its products. The alloy, dubbed "Liquidmetal," has better than twice the strength of titanium, but cools quickly and can be easily molded like plastic. As some MMi readers quickly pointed out, this appears to be the first step to fulfilling Sarah Connor's prophecy. ...

    iOS 4.0.2 was released yesterday, ending the short lived JailbreakMe.com method to jailbreaking. However, in the process, Apple decided to neglect devices such as the iPhone2G and iPod Touch 1G for this update. Even though Apple claims to knowingly be excluding these devices, they don't seem to care that these users have no protection over future malicious attempts.

    Here in the Jailbreaking community, we're ...

    In a move that is sparking hysterical reactions from mainstream journalists and tech bloggers, the Dev-Team's @comex has released the source code of his JailbreakMe "star" exploit, which made use of vulnerabilities recently patched by Apple in iOS versions 4.0.2 and 3.2.2. With pundits calling the public release of @comex's work 'dangerous' and making dire predictions of imminent "attacks," ...

    The iPhone 4 supply shortage is still a major issue for Apple. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster released data gleaned from a new survey this week of Apple stores in the US. What he found is that demand for the updated 4th generation iPhone is still remarkably strong, even in the aftermath of the now subsided "Antennagate" PR disaster. In fact, roughly half of the Apple retail outlets he ...

    Perhaps the worst kept secret in Cupertino is that an Apple TV refresh is on the way. Then again, it really won't be an Apple TV refresh since it appears that Apple TV will no longer be the name Apple uses. According to a report published today by Engadget, Apple will re-brand Apple TV as "iTV" when the new roll-out finally takes place.

    Three months ago, the concept of a new and ...

    Although we've known about the forthcoming Dell tablet for months, the reality of its ...

    Amongst the chaos of 4.0.2 being released, the dev team tweeted earlier today about an update to ultrasn0w which has been tweaked to help improve the battery life during standby on unlocked iPhones.

    So if your not already franticly backing up your SHSH blobs, head on over to Cydia and look for the update there. The recent iOS 4.0.2 does not have an updated baseband, but as usual ultrasn0w ...

    [UPDATE: the rumors were right and iOS 4.0.2/3.2.2 are out there. Jailbreakers DO NOT UPGRADE.]

    Unsubstantiated rumors are flying around the interwebs about iOS 4.0.2 and iOS 3.2.2 updates to be released within hours that will close the PDF hole and root escalation bug that made jailbreakMe possible. No idea if it's true, but we know that Apple claims to have an upgrade in the ...

    Apple's Japan subsidiary said in an online statement that the company will replace any first-generation iPod nano that overheats. As reported by AppleInsider, this improves on an earlier offer where they had only promised to replace faulty batteries. The concession only came after Apple finally revealed 30 more cases of overheating iPods, after a delay which a spokesman for the Japanese trade ...

    Some Apps Are Just Meant To Be Private

    Let's face it, there is a lot of personal information that we cram into our iDevices. Contacts, notes, social networking accounts, email, photos, you name it. All of which could potentially be hijacked or viewed from someone who manages to spend a few seconds on your iDevice. It happens; a friend who is perhaps interested in your iPhone asks if he can take a look, but your hesitant to hand it over, at the risk of leaving something ...
