    Earlier was an image. Now a video is out for everyone that had the initial reaction to the photo of "FAKE." Looks pretty freaking real unless someone has been working very hard on making a fake -- if it is a fake it is a really nice fake -- very Apple-esque. Finally the Mac Mini is getting the update it deserves. From the video this new Mac Mini is looking pretty sweet and classy. Aluminum makes everything better

    Following in Microsoft's footsteps Apple's iWork 09 documents are not backwards compatible. What does this mean? Files saved in any iWork 09 application (Pages, Keynote, Numbers) will not open with iWork 08 unless you choose to save it in iWork 08's format. Apple has published a nice little page explaining iWork 09 and iWork 08 compatibility -- or lack of.

    The AppStore isn't the perfect place for business. There have been many cries from developers for change and Apple has worked towards making the AppStore a better place with minor updates like separating top paid and top free apps, having top apps listed by category, etc.

    Getting a little more scientific on the subject of AppStore success Pinch Media has but together a very nifty slideshow (below) of what they believe to be the secrets of AppStore succes like release timing, pricing, quality, marketing, the reviews, competitor actions, duplication, etc. Check out the Slide Show for some pretty charts and graphs. While it wont give you the perfect formula for "Making it" the Slide Show does give some good guidance in the right direction.

    Is it real? Hope so -- the Mac-Mini is getting very old at this point and needs a major overhaul. If the picture is real then the rumored specs that go along with the image are probably real as well.
    • Mini DVI connector
    • Mini DisplayPort connector
    • FireWire 800 (I thought Apple was ditching Firewire)
    • Five USB ports
    • Aluminum Shell
    • Probably Nvidia gfx

    We love Boxee. We think that their iPhone remote app on Cydia is really cool. We think their software/service is awesome. We think Boxee was great for for watching some Hulu. Unfortunately Hulu doesn't seen to agree with the awesomeness. While Hulu captivated us with its really great Super Bowl commercial and then captivated us further when we realized it was Boxee compatibility we are not captivated by Hulu's statements of why they are removing themselves from Boxee.

According to a ThinkEquity Partners report concerning the market of flash memory Apple is grabbing up massive quantities of flash memory leaving the market dry. Even companies like SanDisk which don't even supply Apple with memory are feeling ...

    I previously mentioned at the end of our xGPS post that Sygic would be showing off their turn-by-turn navigation app at the Mobile World Conference this week and low and behold they did! Dieter Bohn of theiphoneblog had the opportuntiy to grab some shots and check out what Sygic has done.

    The application looks very pretty with the fancy 3d view and is also packed with the features you would expect like voice prompts, POIs, multiple country support, directions, the maps stored locally on the phone ...
