    Sensing growing dissent among plenty of frustrated developers at every turn, Apple is continuing to put forward efforts in good faith to make the app approval process as transparent and "open" as possible - at least for a fiercely private company like Apple.

    This week Apple is busy notifying developers that there is a new tool available to help achieve that stated goal. Thanks to a new iPhone developer RSS feed on Apple's ...

    According to a report from Bright Side of News, "sources close to the heart of the matter" say that Apple isn't interested in Intel's mobile Core i5 and Core i7 line, slated for release in January. It seemed ideal for Apple's MacBook, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini, but the report suggests that whatever chip these systems end up with won't use Intel's integrated graphics. The Bright Side of News report further floats the possibility ...

    Slashdot reported last week on research published by Swiss iPhone developer Nicolas Seriot about security holes in unjailbroken - that's UNjailbroken - iPhones that could potentially compromise email accounts, browser history and even keytaps held in cache. The closed and unmodifiable nature of the stock iPhone OS means that malware could be carried by any app: even one legitimately purchased and downloaded from ...

    There's a lot of talk this week about a new app that serves as the iPhone edition of the popular Dragon NaturallySpeaking software. With a lot of iPhone/iTouch users in agreement that Dragon is a top-shelf provider of text-to-speech technology, it's no wonder that Dragon Dictation has become such a hot commodity only hours after its release.

    If the name sounds familiar, it should be. Dragon Naturally Speaking also powers MacSpeech, an impressive and invaluable text-to-speech tool that can prove a magnificent convenience and aid to many, but especially those with special physical needs.

    From 9to5Mac:

    Dragon Dictation, which is both free and now readily available for download from the ModMyi app store, is particularly popular in light of its ability to enable users to update their Facebook status and Twitter account using only their voice to do so. Whether it's a text or a full-blown email, Dragon Dictation lets you ...

The scam caused over 1,000 apps - nearly 1% of all of the titles on the App Store - to disappear at once.

    The user, "SCW," contacted a Glyn Evans of the iphoneography blog whom he knew to have ...

    Many recent buyers of the latest iMac have reported being shipped computers that suffer from any number of problems. For example, some machines simply don't work. Others have cracked screens. Others just act sort of "funky."

    As a result of the problems reported thus far, a web designer from Nova Scotia created imac.squeaked.com, a website aiming to gauge just how commonplace such reported problems really are.

    What have we learned ...

    Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between an ad and an article.

    This weekend, Apple garnered some gushing media coverage courtesy of the front page of the New York Times business section. The point of the article? To notify the world that the App Store is a "game changer." But as the follow-up coverage from 9to5Mac illustrates today, we pretty much started using the "game changer" reference a few years ago.

    So does the article ...

    While the entertainment world goes gaga for the mega deal between NBC and Comcast, some are starting to realize that there may be an unlikely casualty of the partnership: Apple.

    For months Apple has been thought to be developing a subscription plan for shows on iTunes. Comcast's purchase of NBC could effectively end any hopes Apple has of similarly teaming with the peacock network, a once-likely major broadcast partner ...
