    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 ...

    How many times have you wanted to take that perfect photo with your iPhone and missed it trying to close your app and open the camera app? How many times have you tried to launch the Camera app and wait, and wait, and wait before you can take a photograph? How many times have your friends yelled at you to hurry up and take the damn photo?

    Well folks, those days are gone. At least for us Jailbroken users once again! Today I bring you a hot new app available in cydia called Snappy developed by Marc Vaillant.

    Snappy gives you the ability to take photos from any app on your iPhone without having to close it and launch the camera app. This includes your lockscreen! You can take photos directly from the lockscreen in a matter of 1 or 2 seconds! Literally!

    All you have to do is tap and hold the status bar (the topmost bar) to open the camera and your ready to snap; compare that to the 6+ seconds it can ...

    According to a story in Computerworld, plaintiffs in a lawsuit against Apple going back to October 2007 asked the judge on Wednesday to order the company to release the source code to iPhone firmware update 1.1.1. The plaintiffs claim that the update was specifically designed to "brick," or render inoperable, any iPhone that had been unlocked.

    The lawsuit alleges that Apple and AT&T violated state and federal antitrust ...

    A patent filed by Apple in 2008 was made public by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Thursday. Called “Pushing a User Interface to a Remote Device,” the patent describes a method to send the GUI of a device, like an iPod, to a remote with a screen display. Although of limited usefulness with today's technology, this patent may point the way to how multiple devices can be controlled through future "smart remotes" with touchscreens. ...

    As we all know, Macworld 2010 will take place for the first time in twenty-six years without the involvement of Apple - a vendor that, to say the least, has some vital connection to the event. Saturday morning the San Francisco Chronicle covered the story that, while known for months and months, is still incredibly difficult to believe.

    Some are naturally concerned that Apple's lack of involvement next year and for subsequent years ...
