    Please do not refresh repeatedly. The live blog will update automatically.

    Sorry for the lame quality photos - we had a slick camera all set up and ready, and last minute technical difficulties (as in, WHILE we were sitting down to start taking photos) screwed that French poodle hard. :/ So you get iPhone photos...

    That's good news for those shopping for the large screen laptop. Well Maybe not. If the ...

    If you’re like me you have old generations of iPods laying around collecting dust since your iPhone is now the “best iPod ever.” – Jobs

    Well this guy, Jordan Horwich, found a use for his old iPods that I think is pretty nifty. He basically took some iPod shells and filled them with some speakers and other wiring and he now has ...

    Well there has been speculation that Steve has been sick and that is the reason he wont be attending Macworld 09. In classic Apple style no one at Apple has said one thing or the other about Steve's health until today when one of Steve's rare open letters was posted on Apple.com

    Set some time aside Tuesday (tomorrow, January 6th) at 9AM PST - we'll be at Macworld, liveblogging the keynote. Even though Phil Schiller will be batting for Lord Jobs, Apple will without a doubt have some good announcements for us. Maybe just to prove they can without Señor Steve.

    We'll be at Macworld all week this week - aside from the keynote be sure to keep checking the ...

    The iPhone Bluetooth Project has been quietly pining away at the Bluetooth aspect of the iPhone for months. They recently released BlueSn0w, a small tool (which bears a striking resemblance in name to another recently released - but unrelated - tool) which is mostly proof of concept.

    Apple has filed a patent for iPhone and iPod touch gloves. This addresses the complaints of almost all users in cold climates who wear gloves outdoors. The multi-touch devices depend on electrical responses from user’s fingertips, which are often blocked ...
