    The conspiracy theorists are out in full force tonight.

    The latest rumor generated by Apple spies snooping around the world wide web for clues to potentially subversive tactics designed to bring about the destruction of Microsoft indicates that Apple may be targeting the growing bastion of Windows 7 pirates.

    The driving force behind the speculation are the ads that Apple is purchasing on Google. The situation is now being actively covered by ...

    A Dutch hacker gained access to a number of jailbroken iPhones that were running ssh with root passwords set to default, and demanded Ä5 to restore them. He's since returned the money, but the incident highlights a common security issue with jailbroken phones.

    It seems likely that the hacker portscanned for ssh on the T-mobile Netherlands network in order to find jailbroken iPhones with SSH running. He then changed ...

    Images have surfaced of what a Chinese parts distributor claims is a fourth-generation iPhone midboard. If you're thinking "Why would Apple do business with anyone who openly leaks such sensitive info?" you're not alone. As a result, many are reluctant to believe what they are seeing.

    AT&T is taking Verizon to court. And even if you haven't heard why, there's a good chance you can suspect the impetus behind the suit filed.

    If you've seen Verizon's "There's a Map for That" commercials, you've probably noticed that AT&T's represented coverage area looks nothing like the coverage area AT&T says it provides. In fact, the commercial makes AT&T's coverage look so bad, that some commentators in the blogosphere saw this lawsuit coming probably before Verizon did.

    From Apple Insider:

    With growing talk that Apple may drop exclusivity with AT&T next year and possibly team with Verizon to extend carrier options for Apple customers, the bad blood between AT&T and Verizon has been boiling like never before in recent weeks. The lawsuit obviously illustrates the intensity of the situation.

    Users began grumbling about the 750MB cap on Orange's so-called "unlimited" data plan as soon as it was announced. Close reading of the Terms and Conditions of Orange's service, however, reveals even more restrictions, which poses the question: how many limits can you put on a plan and still call it "unlimited?"

    The word "unlimited" in Orange's rate plan listing is followed by an asterisk, which points to a notification ...

    This week in the Washington Post, a Tech Crunch piece by Greg Kumparak was highlighted that reminds us of just how much the iPhone has left us hanging - at least in terms of five iPhone accessories many of us are still waiting for.

    Although we could easily supplement this list with additional would-be accessories, for now, this is a good start.

    A Detachable Physical Keyboard

    I know, I know... the iPhone isn't supposed to have a physical keyboard. But with the BlackBerry and Droid renewing the mobile consumer's love affair ...

    Apple Insider is reporting that Apple may be courting television networks with a plan to provide a $30-per-month subscription package that would deliver content via iTunes.

    The potential service, which may launch as early as 2010, has been kept on the down-low for some time. But the recent wave of information leaks about Apple's allegedly aggressive push for the service likely means its about to debut.

    The iPhone officially launched in China over the weekend, after years of grey-market availability through unlocked iPhones streaming in from Hong Kong. Although the main sales channel is service provider China Unicom Ltd., one indication of the lukewarm reception can be seen in the sales numbers at Apple's only retail outlet in Beijing: ten on Saturday, and grand total of one on Sunday.
