    A new website has been developed that features a petition against Apple to stop their unfair practices and protect developers, called Petition Apple Competition. The petition was started to lobby the FCC, to intervene on consumers behalf regarding Apple’s monopolistic behaviours in the iPhone Application marketplace. Although Apple has seemed to loosen its grip on what is Approved for the AppStore lately, we all ...

    It's been clear for some time that the iPhone is a huge moneymaker for both Apple and its US carrier AT&T, as well as the constellation of component suppliers that make parts for it. Tracking the actual dollar figures, though, is a difficult task given the complexity of the iPhone ecosystem and the secrecy surrounding Apple and AT&T's business relationship. A post on GigaOM this week, though, took a stab ...

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHRSDWZC_m4]YouTube - IS THIS THE APPLE MACTABLET AKA TABLETMAC ?![/ame]

    An interesting, fairly sophisticated, almost certainly fake video of a tablet-like device is making the rounds this weekend. Highlighted by the French site Nowhereelse.fr, the video shows a thin tablet that looks like nothing so much as a large iPod touch. No source is given for the video. ...

    This one comes trickling down the rumor mill courtesy of our friends at 9to5Mac.

    Adding to the recent wave of purchases by the powers that be in Cupertino, now comes word that Apple may be interested in purchasing VoIP provider iCall for the ballpark price tag of between $50 and $60 million.

    In the context of its heated competition with Google, it does, indeed, make sense for Apple to scoop up a VoIP company as soon ...

    This weekend, Apple is introducing a new look and design to their App Store individual app pages. Closely mirroring the iTunes 9 design, the new look adds greater visual consistency to the overall iTunes/app store user experience. But the motivation for the revision is believed to be the growing number of developers displeased with the previous look of the store's individual app pages.

    According to coverage from MacRumors ...

    The issue of App Store rejection has been a sore one for developers for some time. Many have criticized Apple's demanding policies which require apps to be reviewed and approved before releasing them for sale, as well as the lack of transparency and the long delays experienced by some developers. Could Apple finally be responding to all the frustration?

    AppleInsider reported today on a company whose ...

    Having been sued by Nokia for patent infringement, Apple today responded by filing a countersuit of its own. The new complaint accuses Nokia of violating 13 of Apple's patents. In announcing the counterclaim, Bruce Sewell, Apple’s General Counsel and senior vice president, said “Other companies must compete with us by inventing their own technologies, not just by stealing ours.”

    On October 22, Nokia sued Apple ...

    It certainly is an unorthodox place for an iPod dock. But thanks to our friends at Electrolux, doing housework just became a whole lot more interesting.

    Electrolux, a popular maker of household appliances, has unveiled the "Silence Amplified," a vacuum cleaner that sports a built-in iPod dock that will "revolutionize your cleaning routine." According to the UK's Telegraph:

    Because a belt clip or arm band was just too inconvenient, right?

    Electrolux, which has only presented the product line in theory for now, has even created a website that enables interested parties to assemble the "perfect playlist for vacuuming the house." Hoping to generate buzz for the appliance, Electrolux says it could be convinced to actually go forward with mass-producing the product if a million pre-orders are placed.

    Good luck with that one. Of course, the people at Electrolux may be onto something with their belief in the power of ...

    Although our built-in iPhone cameras have enabled millions of us to capture the priceless - or pointless - moments that would have otherwise passed un-preserved, among the most frustrating aspects of our beloved iPhone camera is its inability to match the functionalities of a traditional point and shoot camera.

    Until now, for example, taking a group photo or family portrait on the iPhone was nearly impossible without someone removing ...

    Neowin has released a report that claims Microsoft is working on two new applications for the AppStore, one being a Bing application and the other for Windows Live Messenger on the iPhone. Unfortunately the applications won't be released until March, which should time nicely with their release of Windows Live Wave 4 updates.

    Microsoft already has two applications ...

    Say What? A Free and OpenSource Multitasking App? What about multifl0w you say? Hope you didn't think that was going to be the last multitasking app to come to the iPhone. A few days ago we got wind of some screenshots and information for the new app.

    The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office today released more than 20 patents that Apple has applied for over the past year, covering products that may or may not ever be available for sale. AppleInsider reviewed some of the patents: one of which is for an anti-tampering label, and another for a new accelerometer-based user interface. A third is for a revolutionary new dock that could fit any current - or likely future - device.

    The anti-tampering ...
