    Our friends at Electronista published a report this weekend that has since been dubbed "potential evidence of a Verizon-capable iPhone." But, apparently, it's ample evidence to convince ...

    If there was ever a time for Apple to blitz the German market with Mac vs. PC advertisements, that time would be now. Chances are, even the German government would get behind the marketing campaign. That's the logical inference, of course, based on the BBC report this weekend.

    Many users have complained about iPhone’s lack of support for Flash, claiming that it's a fundamental flaw with the phone's ability to access Internet content. Others have maintained that Flash itself is fundamentally flawed, a CPU hog that will crash AT&T's already strained network. Now, however, a developer has come up with a JavaScript workaround that will allow the iPhone to run Flash content, though only that ...

    Mac clone maker Psystar is like a monster from a bad 1980's horror flick. It just won't die. No matter how many times we think Apple and the legal system have pounded the final nail into Psystar's coffin, the copycat monster keeps waking up and evading the graveyard to live another day. From Engadget:

    Psystar is officially hanging on by a thread. But the tenacious knock-off artists are going to persist until ...
