    Last week I mentioned that Microsoft was working on two new iPhone apps, Bing! being one of them. I'm not much of a Bing! user myself. Infact, I'll be honest, I have maybe used it a two ro three times. For some reason I just don't feel comfortable mixing Microsoft with my searching habits. Then again, Google isn't much better in that department.

    Nonetheless, It's interesting news when a new Microsoft App rolls into the almighty Apple iTunes, and the ...

    Toshiba announced today that it will begin mass production in 2010 of 64GB NAND memory. Many observers believe that the modules are headed for the iPhone, noting that Apple has doubled the capacity of the device every year since it was introduced - with possibly a pair of them to be fitted into an upgraded 128GB iPod touch in the year to come.

    The iPhone 3GS models currently shipping include ...

    If you haven't already blown your extra spending cash on the must-have iPod beanie (insert sarcasm here), perhaps a more worthwhile investment would be a cool new gadget from Dexim.

    Although many iPhone and iPod users have a Dexim dock for charging their mobile devices, the accessory makers recently unveiled a new device that puts the iPhone/iPod front and center in your home entertainment setup. Best of all, the Dexim DRA022 is not ...

    A new study shows that - despite recent negative publicity and consumer ratings to the contrary - AT&T's 3G network actually has better performance than Verizon's. The tests, carried out by start-up performance monitoring company Root Wireless, were done using non-Apple smartphones, though, and a New York Times writer quotes a consultant who claims there are problems with the iPhone's wireless interface.

    According to a report this morning from MacWorld, the European Commission is calling for iPod listening limits to be established in order to ensure a safe level of listening that ideally will place maximum ...

    It's been decided by everyone but the executives in Cupertino that the iPhone and iTouch represent the future of handheld gaming. And although these particular mobile devices weren't designed with video gaming prowess at the apex of the priority list, avid gamers have fallen for the iPhone and it seems little can come between these two lovers.

    Although this makes me wonder, with Apple being so kind to the new handful of Video apps, does this mean that we might be seeing OS 3.2 soon? And could it possibly include the addition of video recording ...

    Analyst firm Strand Consult released a report called “How will psychologists describe the iPhone syndrome in the future?” in which they compare ...
