    Okay, so maybe "breezes" isn't the best choice of words, given how long and hard the road to success proved for Apple. But Apple has finally gotten a leg up on Microsoft - at least on Wall Street.

    The Standard & Poor's index services unit says Apple, with a market cap of $241.5 billion, is now ahead of Microsoft's $239.5 billion market capitalization. As a result, Apple now lags behind ...

    Police are trying to determine if Gizmodo violated California state law by buying an iPhone prototype from someone who said he found it in a bar, according to "a law enforcement official" quoted by CNET yesterday. The official also claims that Apple itself asked for the investigation, which, if true, would contradict persistent rumor that the somewhat unlikely story was just an Apple publicity ...

    A controversial post from Rixstep is drawing wide apprehension, disbelief, and cries of "big fat rumor" this weekend. What's all the fuss about? Well, it seems that Apple wants to be large and in charge for when Mac OS 10.7 rolls out. Indeed, there could be "big changes" ahead. And, as Rixstep hints, Apple will exercise absolute authority in ways never before observed in Mac operating systems. According to Rixstep's ...

    The Google Maps mobile app brought GPS mapping to a lot of people who would never have bought a standalone device. Jailbreakers have had turn-by-turn navigation for the better part of a year with xGPS, but Google has been dragging their feet. Finally, they announced Google Maps Navigation last year, but only for Android. Today, however, in a press conference in London, Google said ...

    The tax man is coming! The tax man is coming!

    Apparently, one of the last remaining frontiers not totally subjected to government taxation and oversight is now on the radar of lawmakers in Illinois. Because of the state’s $13 billion budget shortfall, iPhone, iPod, and iPad owners who download content from iTunes are essentially being targeted to help Illinois recover from economic hardship.

    I wasn't aware of it. My friends weren't either. How about you?

    Of course, we're all aware of Apple's limit of two iPad purchases per customer. But who knew this "limit" was iron clad for life?

    After all, if we have a booklet full of identical coupons valid one per customer, every day we can use one coupon - ultimately redeeming the full value of the booklet on a day-by-day basis as a lone customer. Unfortunately, ...

    FarmVille, the addictive (to some) and annoying (to non-farmers) social networking game that has won so many adherents and haters on Facebook may soon be coming to the iPhone, iPad, and Android platforms. The hint of this development was uncovered by a Tumblr blogger, who noticed domains like farmvilleiphone.com and farmvilleandroid.com have been registered by the same company that owns farmville.com. ...

    A report in the IEEE magazine Spectrum indicates that Intrinsity - the company behind Samsung's fast Hummingbird processor - designed Apple's new A4 system-on-a-chip (SoC), rather than Apple's PA Semi talent, as previously believed. Meanwhile, reports indicate that Agnilux, the company started by the PA Semi engineers who left Apple, may be getting bought by Google, setting the stage for a ...

    Apple may purchase ARM.

    Yeah, I had to take a good look at that headline too when it was just emblazoned across the London Evening Standard. And, today, as the blogosphere catches wind if what could be a major development, many are weighing in - often with some disbelief - on the prospect of Apple scooping up the prestigious processor designer.

    According to the London Evening ...

    Two months ago, we at MMI shared with you the growing trend of sharing apps. Before Apple made it possible to gift apps among friends and family, the people at Apptizr were ahead of the curve and making it possible for users to spy on the apps their friends use or even recommend (not buy or "gift") applications to anyone in their social network. When we last checked in with Apptizr in February, ...
