    I just might slap the next person who tells me how excited they are about Tweetie 2, for it was all I heard about this weekend. Not helping my exposure to the new iPhone app was all the surprising attention it has been given in the last few days, including an expansive profile in the New York Daily News.

    Although I haven't been bitten by the Twitter bug to the painful extent to which some of my friends ...

    Psystar's ongoing legal battle against Apple may have been struck a mortal wound on Saturday with a ruling from the U.S. District Court. Judge William Alsup of the Northern District of California ruled that Psystar infringed Apple's copyright to the Mac OS X operating system, and violated the Digital Millennium Copyright Act by modifying the OS to run on non-Apple hardware.

    Rudy and Robert Pedraza went into business selling Mac OS X on non-Apple ...

    Last week we covered the decision by Apple to reject a submitted iPhone app from Tom Richmond, an artist for MAD Magazine who crafted "Bobble Rep," a functional database of every elected member of Congress, their contact info, and, instead of a photo, a unique caricature of each Congressperson and Senator.

    Unlike most rejected apps that largely go unnoticed, the rejection of "Bobble Rep" was noticed. Widely noticed, in ...

    It was a spectacle to behold.

    The grand opening of Apple's "biggest, baddest" new retail store surprised even some of Apple's most frequent critics. On Saturday morning in Manhattan's Upper West Side, the official unveiling of New York's newest Apple store was, to put it mildly, an "event."

    Located at 1981 Broadway, the grandiose, cube-like building with spectacular glass staircases officially offers the single largest physical ...

    If anyone is concerned that Apple hasn't properly taken a hint that iPhone and iPod users want their beloved devices to develop the potential for advanced gaming that they possess, have no fear. Apple has apparently received the message. And now the folks in Cupertino are acting on it by posting a job opening for a gaming engineer.

    According to ChannelWeb:

    The timing couldn't be better for Apple to augment ...

The sensing device attaches to the bottom of an iPhone and uses the data connection to collect, process and report the results.

    Our friends at UnwiredView.com have uncovered a new patent application from - you guessed it - Apple. Although patent applications are nothing to ostensibly get excited about in theory, it's a different story altogether when a patent application suggests that the mythical Apple tablet may actually be on the horizon.

    According to further coverage by MacRumors, everyone seems to be interpreting this find as evidence that efforts are ...

    TomTom is taking on Text-to-Speech with their popular iPhone application. And despite wide gaps between those who like and dislike the app, that chasm will likely be bridged (just a wee bit) by the new update that adds a staple of full-blown GPS technology to their app.

    As you would imagine, the free update, which been submitted to Apple and is currently awaiting approval, enables your app to announce everything from street ...
