    The first generation iPhone seems so "yesterday," doesn't it? To some smartphone users among us, however, yesterday's biggest thing is still working just fine today. That's according to the findings from Admob, which suggest that nearly one-third of all first generation iPhones are still alive and well this very moment.

    While that number sounds substantial, it must be viewed in perspective ...

    It was a stealthy, barely noticed move. But it certainly is a monumental development, particularly for the millions of iPhone, iPod, and iPad owners perpetually confounded and frustrated by the inability to watch the videos posted to Facebook that used to be played solely in Flash.

    The new Core i7-equipped MacBook Pro model may have a heat buildup issue, if a recent set of tests hold up. The Australian PC Authority magazine ran a series of benchmarks on the new notebook and found that when pushed to the limit, the processor reached an alarming 101įC - above the boiling point of water - and the bottom of the laptop was uncomfortably hot to the touch. A side-by-side test with a Fujitsu laptop ...

    As many questions as answers linger after the revelation of the police raid on Gizmodo editor Jason Chen's house on Friday night. Questions like: are bloggers really journalists? (I kind of hope so, personally), what did they want off Chen's hard drives? and why didn't they arrest him? The police took their time, having broken into Chen's house when he wasn't there, but he was told he could stay or go if he wanted ...

    Apple takes its leaks very seriously.

    According to court documents obtained and published online, a search and seizure warrant was issued for Chen's residence. As a result, ...

    Last week we reported on MMI that Apple was interested in purchasing ARM for a potential deal that could have been worth a whopping $8 billion. It has now become clear, however, that Apple won't be purchasing ARM, but that Imagination Technologies, a mobile graphics chip business that Apple owns a chunk of, is teaming with MIPS Technologies to effectively do battle with ARM Holdings.

    Rumors of an iPod touch model with a built-in camera appear to be substantiated by the appearance of a couple of apparent prototype devices on eBay. If the iPods weren't just elaborate hoaxes, they were 32GB models with integrated cameras on the back. The photos accompanying the listing showed Apple lab stickers, and matched the supposed leaked prototype that appeared on the Web last September. ...
