    Named for the magnetic reed switches it uses, the ReedBox is inspired by Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers's Bloom. The box is actually a device that allows users to interface with basic software applications using magnets and was made by John Kuiphoff.

    Alright well this nice picture shown above that Engadget managed to snag should clear up any remaining rumors about a $99 iPhone. It also shows a nice date of launch -- the 28th of December just 10 days away.

    If you have been thinking about picking up an iPhone 3g and locking yourself into a two year commitment with AT&T you'd be best of running by a Walmart on the ...

    Much like here in the states and across many other countries there is an exclusive iPhone carrier in France. On Wednesday the French competition authority barred the agreement between France Telecom SA (Orange) and Apple to have the iPhone sold exclusively through Orange in France saying that "by nature introduces a new factor of rigidity in a sector that already lacks competition."

    Today, Apple announced that this year’s MacWorld Expo would be its last and that Phil Schiller will deliver the keynote and not Steve Jobs.

    There have been speculations that this change is due to Job’s health. Jobs underwent surgery for pancreatic cancer, but has been cancer free since July. This and the fact that Apple has said ...

    We have been working hard on a few other things. The main one being the 3G unlock codenamed “yellowsn0w”. This is now completed and is currently being packaged into a user-friendly application with the simplicity that you see in QuickPwn or BootNeuter.

    • Graphic improvements for gaming, iChat, Cover Flow, Aperture, and iTunes.
    • Some sort of Trackpad System Preference Pane for portable macs.

    A few days ago the folks at Advertising Age noticed a new iPhone add on yahoo (the video above or you can see it in person here if it is still up) that showcases the iPod Touch as a gaming device. While the ad is interesting in itself as it takes the top half of Yahoo's page and makes it dance around with the advertisement a more interesting question can be brought up. Are the ...

    If you need to get your fix on AppStore apps that aren't appropriate in places like work Apple has heard you and is now allowing these types of apps into the AppStore. Don't get too excited though because these aren't going to be pornographic in nature; just crude and lewd.

    • Top free and top paid applications are now separated. They are both positioned in the right column of the AppStore with paid apps above the free apps. This change was probably made to help feature paid apps more -- the previous
