    AdMob - soon to be purchased by Google - released a report tabulating webpage requests from smartphones worldwide to sites served by its ads. The result? iPhone users were responsible for half of all the traffic on mobile phones in October, up from 43% in September. The proportion in the United States was even larger, where 55% of all requests came from an iPhone.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imFfITYWiOE]YouTube - Brian Marshall is bullish on Apple[/ame]

    Numerous outlets are reporting today on a somewhat startling assertion by an analyst on Bloomberg TV, stating that Apple's exclusive arrangement with AT&T as its sole iPhone service provider will come to an end in June of 2010. He also stated that Apple would be receiving $300 from future partners, rather ...

    There's a new worm on the radar. And, this time, it's a bit more nefarious than anything Rick Astley could have ever imagined himself.

    According to a boatload of media outlets covering the news today, a second worm to hit the iPhone has been detected by security company F-Secure. And, says TG Daily, for now, the worm has set its sights on people in the Netherlands who use their iPhones for internet banking with Dutch online bank ...

    If you missed it, this weekend a fascinating interview was published with Apple's senior vice-president of worldwide product marketing, Phil Schiller. This morning, MacRumors is covering the conversation in some detail.

    Defending the App Store and its controversial app approval process, Schiller served up some insight on a bizarre pattern of seemingly hypocritical rejections and approvals that have confounded many developers and forced some to wash their ...

    China Unicom has great expectations for the iPhone despite lackluster sales, projecting that the device will represent 10 percent of all 3G phones in the People's Republic within two to three years. The chairman of China's second-largest wireless carrier also said that he expects the iPhone to be the top-selling smartphone in the burgeoning Chinese market.

    In spite of intense interest in the ...

    As noted here last week, reports have maintained that Apple has sent specs of its rumored tablet to publishers in an effort to build their interest in producing content for the device.

    The video above (warning: terrible audio) shows a mockup put together by Condé Nast, in a display at the Fifth Annual WIRED Store in ...

    Although we have known for some time that the iPhone would make its long awaited debut in South Korea, now we know when the grand reveal will take place. A local carrier in South Korea announced Sunday that the globally popular iPhone will be formally introduced into "one of the world's most sophisticated mobile phone markets" this Thursday - which is the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States.

    Possibly poised to give the folks ...

    It's no secret that smoking is bad for you.

    But did you also know that it's bad for your Mac? With news emerging that Apple may not touch your machine if you touch a cigarette, perhaps smokers will find twice the incentive to kick the habit, which could very well kill their Mac long before it kills them. And what is life really worth anyway if it has to be endured with a busted Mac?

    According to a new report from Tech Radar, several smokers ...

    Many of us got really excited when Orbit was first released. It allowed us to quickly get an Springboard Exposé-like look at our apps on each page. This was a first for the iPhone in Jailbreak Land and nothing new for many Mac OS X users. Being the only of it's kind, it was released to the Cydia Store at a price of $1.99.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the work that Steven has put into his projects. I absolutely love Stacks and give kudos to his efforts. ...

    UPDATE: The word QuickWidgets might be deceiving. This app is actually a package of QuickBirthday, QuickSMS, QuickCalendar, and QuickBoard. These apps are NOT free. Guess there should be fine print on this one. Sheesh

    After SmartScreen was released only just yesterday, QuickWidgets, although somewhat beta still, has suddenly drawn some attention.

    With the same idea in mind as SmartScreen, QuickWidgets offers various widgets ...

    Status Updated: Multifl0w is available through ModMyI repo now.

    We've all seen the Palm Pre and HTC ads that boast about the ability to multitask. Why Apple did not include this still blows my mind (yeah yeah, battery usage my ***. then make a better battery. We NEED to multitask). What better productivity tool is there than being able to multitask with your available apps?!

    Thankfully for us Jailbroken users, this idea of multitasking has been possible for quite some time now with the use of an app called Backgrounder by Lance Fetters (ashikase), available in Cydia for free.

    While this app has definitely been a heaven-sent gift for us multitaskers, there has definitely been a need to have more efficient access to currently running apps. At this time, Backgrounder provides a little badge beside the App icons to indicate which are currently running, which was a good start.

    Very shortly ...
