    The New York Times reported in an article Saturday on a claim that Apple has been working "for the past couple of years" on a multitouch version of iWork for the rumored upcoming Apple tablet. The newspaper says the tablet will be controlled by a complex vocabulary of gestures that was developed by FingerWorks, a company Apple acquired in 2007.

    The assertions came in the middle of an article in the Times ...

    Since a new rumor about the forthcoming Apple tablet hasn't circulated in at least ten minutes, now is the perfect time to focus on a different Apple product for once - and one that already exists. The iPhone is on the receiving end of a number of curious speculations this weekend, the grand-daddy of which is talk that our trusty handset could soon get a little flashier. And I mean that literally.

    A recent Apple patent application shows the company's work on a new generation of touchscreens that may one day lead to slimmer, brighter screens on computers and phones. The new technology, as revealed on the Patently Apple website, would eliminate the additional layer of capacitive material above the LCD screen, making each pixel itself actually touch-sensitive, and allowing the display itself to be ...

    The popular Fandango movie app for the iPhone has offered online ticket purchasing since its release back in March, and the companion website has allowed you to print tickets at home for years. Now, however, the service is planning to roll out scannable barcodes for the iPhone app that will eliminate paper movie tickets entirely.

    “We’re testing it now,” said Darren Cross of Fandango told Leander Kahney ...

    Perhaps that headline was poorly phrased

    Nonetheless, samples of iPod stools (that's better, right?) are creating a buzz. Aptly described as an "innovative music experience," The iTamtam dock represents a cross between a bar stool and an iPod dock. Promoted as everything from a decorative addition to the music lover's home, to a posterior tingling music experience of epic proportions, there could be all sorts of interested ...

    After taking heat for years from Greenpeace about its environmental practice, Apple has won the activist group's praise for having cleaned up its act. Greenpeace lauded Apple's improved record at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on Thursday, also singling out cellphone makers Nokia and Sony Ericsson for their green manufacturing processes.

    Apple had come in dead last in the environmental group's ...

    According to an "exclusive" from the financial website TheStreet.com, the supposed new Verizon iPhone will be powered by a chip from Qualcomm. Contradicting earlier rumors, though, the phone would not be dual mode - allowing it to be used both on CSMA systems like Verizon's and GSM networks like AT&T's in the US - but rather based on a standard EV-DO chip from Qualcomm.

    Doing my best Arnold Schwarzenegger impression, the new toy from technology firm Parrot has me shouting "Get to da choppa!!!" In what has to be one of the most intriguing and futuristic "toys" to roll out in some time, an augmented reality toy helicopter has everyone talking. The "AR.Drone" as its known, is a fully functional toy helicopter capable of being controlled from the iPhone or iPod Touch.

    By now we've all adjusted to inhabiting a world where security cameras are so ubiquitous we almost hardly ever notice they're around. From grocery stores to post offices, we're always on camera it seems, a reality that may be further perpetuated thanks to a new iPhone application that essentially transforms your device into a general, run-of-the-mill security camera.

    A lot of cool developments lie ahead for the iPhone - the evidence of which is mounting daily. And as a host of new gadgets and software get the red carpet treatment courtesy of CES, a lot of people are talking about Tivit, which serves as an external TV tuner for the iPhone, your PC, and even a few other smart phones on the market. The Tivit is aiming to take Mobile DTV to the next level by "beaming local TV stations to handhelds" all ...

    Apple's is likely to sell as many as 36 million iPhones worldwide in 2010, which Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster notes is a 40 percent increase over the 25 million phones the manufacturer sold last year. He says his research indicates Apple will sell almost sixteen million iPhones in the US in the coming year, and this would be without the increasingly-likely emergence of a second US carrier in 2010.

    One of the many "stealth" updates in Apple’s Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard release last year was the operating system's first integrated malware blocker. The utility scans downloaded files for malware, which is increasingly becoming an issue on the Mac platform. According to a security blog, however, Apple has not updated the utility's signature database in months.
