    Are the hopes for a Verizon iPhone so high that even the most minimal shred of evidence to suggest an end to AT&T exclusivity is sufficient to send some Verizon fans into a frenzy? Apparently, the answer to that question is a big, fat "affirmative."

    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. In order to "protect security," the German population is being warned about the "hazards" of using Internet Explorer. And they're even being advised to find a new ...

    According to a report in The New York Post, a New York teenager has been charged with threatening to blow up an Apple computer store in a deadly suicide bombing. The "threat" was typed in a Stickies note on the screen of one of the display computers in the store. The young man said the note was a joke, but authorities are taking it seriously... and he may be sentenced with up to seven years in jail if he is convicted ...

    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 ...

    In what has amounted to a hilarious gag that raised eyebrows and ire at Apple, the digital tech-gossip magazine Valleywag has issued a lucrative bounty to anyone who can provide photographic evidence of the Apple tablet's existence ahead of the device's rumored release later this month.

    Here's the rundown: $10,000 for a picture of the tablet. $20,000 for video of the tablet in use. $50,000 for video of Steve Jobs playing with it. $100,000 ...

    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 ...

    Apple on Friday retaliated against Nokia's demand that the US International Trade Commission (ITC) ban all imports of iPhones by filing its own complaint with the ITC. Apple, similarly, wants to block imports of Nokia's phones to the US, claiming that they infringe Apple patents. Nokia insists it will "defend itself vigorously" against the complaint.

    The latest move in the escalating tit-for-tat conflict ...

The new unlimited plan is $30 US cheaper than the current rate.

    The Defriended app was released earlier this week. It had a pretty simple function: to figure out who "defriended" you on Facebook. This is a function that's not available on either Facebook's website or the iPhone app, and the practice is common enough that the synonym "unfriend" was named New Word of the Year by the New Oxford American Dictionary, so this app obviously had appeal for those who wonder why they don't see updates for certain people ...
