    It almost sounds like a joke. But this week, an app fiasco has found its way into the headlines to the amusement of Apple critics confounded by the occasional App Store application debacle.

    On Monday, Steve Jobs utilized his WWDC keynote address to cover a considerable amount of territory. He even found time time to direct a few playful barbs at the App Store himself. During the presentation, however, ...

    The inclusion of a 5 megapixel camera on the new iPhone 4 remedies a long-lamented shortcoming: Apple's phone cams have far underperformed the competitors in its class. If the first batch of images off the device are any indication, Cupertino has more than made up for lost time. Apple posted what it claims are unretouched photos on its website, and the quality is, frankly, stunning.

    The iPhone's rear-facing ...

    Build 10F566, of Apple Mac OS X 10.6.4 was pushed out by Apple today to registered developers. Apparently Apple is pretty confident as there are no issues listed with this release. Could it be the last one before the final release? Will they make a public release first? The trend seems to be "wrap it up" as we see new seeds of Mac OS X, iOS 4 and iTunes.

    Since April this is the ...

    Although yesterday's WWDC kick-off was all about the iPhone 4, Apple CEO Steve Jobs opened his keynote address with a few self-congratulating comments about the runaway success of the iPad. Plugging its two million sales thus far and hinting an at even more successful future, Apple is clearly proud of itself. And, slowly but surely, the company is helping the entire world discover what all ...

    MuscleNerd has just tweeted a confirmation that redsn0w 0.9.5 Jailbreaks iOS4 GM, just like it did the previous releases.

    Of course the same rules apply, this redsn0w release only works with an iPhone 3G and Mac OS X.

    This is great news for JB Developers, as they can get the final touches on their updates for the new iOS 4.

    For those of you that are interested in iOS4 ...

    Many will recall the very self-serving decision by Apple earlier this spring to revise its iPhone OS - excuse me, iOS - developer agreement to effectively prohibit third parties from collecting user data and other analytics most advertisers consider to be vital. But now that's all changed - at least a little.

    While Apple is no longer comprehensively closed off to other ad networks, the ...

    In yesterday's iPhone 4 announcement, Steve Jobs shoveled a lot of specs at us, particularly regarding the new "Retina Display." The oddly-named screen - an LCD with a pixel density abnormally high for a mobile phone - seems like it will be one of those features, like the iPad's display, that you have to see to appreciate. The iPad was not that impressive when it was first announced, one may remember, but many people ...

    Apple either accidentally let a fairly large cat out of a bag today or made some sort of bizarre graphic mistake. As noted by the eagle-eyed Stuart Miles at Pocket-lint.com, an image on the US iTunes 4 web pages showed an "Open in Keynote" option for an email attachment. Keynote and the rest of the iWork suite are currently only available on iPad. The graphic has since been changed to show ...

    During the WWDC Keynote today, we were told "iOS 4 software will be available on June 21 as a free software update via iTunes 9.2 or later for iPhone and iPod touch customers". As you can imagine, the iOS 4 GM and the beta version of iTunes 9.2 is now available for developers through the Apple Developer portal.

    One can assume that the official release will coincide with the iOS 4 release June 21st.

    It seems Apple wasn't quite done with their announcements after the KeyNote presentation today.

    Calling it "the most advanced mobile operating system in the world," Steve Jobs announced at WWDC 10 today that the next revision of iPhone OS will be called "iOS 4." With a new name that reflects the spread of the operating system from the iPhone to the iPod touch and now the iPad, iOS 4 went Gold Master today with what Jobs said were 1,500 new features. The upgrade will be available for ...

    As the live audience in attendance and thousands more across the blogosphere awaited the 8th and final attribute of the new iPhone to be introduced, many - if not most - were surprised by what Steve Jobs saved for last. Thinking the new video chat functionality dubbed "FaceTime" would be the last feature introduced (ultimately, though, it was), Apple's head honcho took more than a few minutes to plug Apple's foray ...
