    A report by DigiTimes claims that Apple is has contracted the Taiwanese based company Wintek to supply touch panels for a new Apple netbook.

    Could Wintek's revenues increasing 25% from January to February be the confirmation that they are really going to be providing these panels to Apple?

    Rumors of a touch screen notebook or netbook from Apple have been running rampant ...

    Historically WWDC is held in mid March but if the prediction by The Baltimore Sun is correct WWDC could be moving to a date in June. This speculation is fueled by the Moscone Center events schedule which has a corporate meeting listed between June 6th and 12th.

    Although completely unconfirmed it would make perfect sense that Apple would be moving to a June date. Apple ...

    A new build (9J27) of Snow Leopard 10.5.7 has been seeded to Apple Developer Center Premiere and Select Members only a week and a half after the previous build (9J22). Apple appears to ramping up the pace of 10.5.7 development. Could this mean they are moving closer to release?

    One big change to note is with Quicktime

    Seed notes from the new build (9J27):

    It was a nice dream. Sirius XM satellite radio on the iPhone via the App Store. Unfortunately after StarPlayr was submitted to the App Store it was never able to make it through (presumably some Sirius XM pressure was behind the denial). Now StarPlayr is officially done for good.

    What have we learned? If you have something cool going on many different platforms and haven't had legal troubles ...

    Well it is officially open. Just to test it out I decided to pick up the first paid Cydia App: Cyntact. The first thing you will notice after installing the new Cydia is Cyntact up there in changes. You'll also notice that the title and description is in the color blue instead of black like normal applications. This blue color indicated that it is a Cydia Store Application. That is the only difference you will see in the new Cydia as nothing else menu-wise has changed.

    On to the buying. This process took me ages here the ...

    The AppStore has just reached 25,000 app mark but it seems that some of them might be disappearing. Though the AppStore was launched on 1st June last year, many developers signed up in March itself. According to people familiar with contact, Apple claims to give a renew option within ninety days before expiry date but it is yet to be provided, ...

    Lets face it. Apple does not allow many very cool apps for sale in the App Store because of their very tight (and in many cases unreasonable) restrictions. The developers of these apps (PDANet, MySMS and iBlacklist to name a few of the many) still want to earn a little revenue for their hard work and until now have been forced to come up with their own sales solutions on Cydia/Installer.

    Here at MMi we have always been into theming the iPhone ever since we first replaced the icons using some good ol' iPhuc back in 2007. Since then theming has advanced tremendously with innovations like Summerboard on Installer and finally ended up where it is at today with Winterboard and Cydia bringing many 100's of free user generated themes to the iPhone.

    We've been thinking to ourselves lately "we love iphone theming and we love giving away prizes." Combining

    Amazon.com's Kindle is recently released in its 2.0 iteration, and with it comes a whole new competitor - the iPhone. Except... its not competition at all. Amazon has actually released a free app in the AppStore to allow iPhone users to read purchased Kindle-compatible books on their iPhones.

    While the app allows you to read Kindle books (and smartly syncs with your Kindle ...

    If you read our newsletter you saw that MMi will be holding an iPhone Theming contest with a ridiculous number of iPhone apps as prizes. The newsletter also said check the site today for the contest details. Thanks in part to me having a home internet fail session and other fails (you know who you are and your handle DOES NOT start with a S) I regrettably have to announce a minor ...

    It appears that Verizon is worried that they missed out when they refused to be THE carrier for the iPhone back in 2007. There have been rumors since then that Verizon would be getting the iPhone but to date AT&T is still king.

    According to a Boy Genius report Verizon is trying to figure out exactly how many people it lost thanks to its iPhone mistake. In a survey sent out to previous Verizon customers the ...

    China Mobile and Apple talks concerning the iPhone recently broke down after China Mobile wanted to control the sales of apps on the phones it sold instead of Apple in control like they currently are with the App Store.

    Their loss. Now China Unicom (125 million subscribers) has picked up where China Mobile (415 million subscribers) left off in negotiations with Apple. According to a Reuters ...
