    Apple’s 4th quarter earnings report broke records and sent the company’s stock price to another record high closing above $500 for the first time ever with Apple’s market cap reaching close to $500 billion.

    However, Apple’s massive success has had some unforeseen side effects, mainly massive skewing of important market indices like the S&P 500. Since 1957 the S&P has published the prices of 500 large-cap stocks ...

    Two newfangled applications have surfaced in the Cydia store today that permit you to link an iDevice deprived of Siri to an iPhone 4S to use Siri on that older iDevice. The big catch is that you need a jailbroken iPhone 4S, whether it is yours or not. The proxy server method does not necessitate an iPhone 4S because only the owner of the proxy server needs the iPhone 4S keys. In most cases, we buy the use of these servers so that ...

    According to Gartner, Apple emerged as the leading smartphone manufacturer in 2011.

    Other reports pegged Samsung as the 2011 smartphone leader, but Gartner’s data placed Apple at the top with a 19% overall smartphone market share. The iPhone 4S released in October spurred a particularly strong 4th quarter for Apple during which the company stole a 23.8%market share with the sale of 37 million iPhones.

    Apple’s ...

    It is becoming increasingly less likely that the Chinese company seeking an import and export ban on the iPad in China isn't going to see its request met. As MMi previously reported, Proview - which claims to be the rightful owner of the iPad trademark in China - is seeking to have all imports and exports of the Apple tablet banned in the country.

    But it doesn't look like that's going to happen, chiefly ...

    You know you've become a litigious company when you go to court in order to get permission to go to court again. That's essentially what Apple is doing today. And it may not end up being a Kodak moment for the company Apple is trying to sue.

    As it turns out, Apple still has it in for Kodak - the bankrupt juggernaut that was once the biggest and wealthiest name in photography. But since the company ...

    There aren't many ventures launched by Apple in recent years that have sputtered out of the gate. But even the most loyal fan boys must concede that Apple's mobile advertising platform - iAd - has failed to live up to the grand hype Apple encouraged ahead of its 2010 introduction.

    The brainchild of Steve Jobs, iAd may have ultimately been another one of those ideas that was still too far ahead of its time. That ...

    PhoneSuit, another California accessory company (Santa Monica, hey hey) markets their case of the same name as the "thinnest, fastest charging iPhone 4 battery case to provide over 100% power." A mouthful indeed, but in our reviews it did hold true.

    The PhoneSuit feels like armor for the iPhone. It is a thick somewhat heavy case that leaves buttons, headphone jack, and camera exposed. The only thing that is not protected is the screen; the case ...

    Siri told her first digital lie today. When asked what languages the virtual assistant can speak Siri replied “I can speak French, English, Japanese, and German.” The problems is Siri doesn’t speak Japanese.

    Last week reports surfaced that Siri would soon support Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, and Russian languages. The above statement by Siri leads us to believe Japanese will be the next ...

    Tim Cook spoke at the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference and explained why Apple considers Apple TV a “hobby.”



    Apple’s “hobby” mentality extends into advertising, and marketing as well. When was the last time anyone saw an Apple TV ad running on network television? When was the last time another retailer bragged about stocking Apple TVs? Still, Apple’s hobby sold more units than ...

    NoSleep is a tool that permits you to keep your MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air operating even after you have closed the lid. This can be particularly useful if you are the kind of person that needs to let your computer work while you are asleep or when you want to take your computer with you somewhere. It’s great for taking the computer places so that you can close the lid even though you want it to continue processing whatever it was processing ...

    There is one thing about iOS that many of us cringe about. The chirping noise that is emitted when you plug your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad into a power source with the USB sync cable is annoying. Whether you’re in a location where you need to be silent such as your home when everyone is sleeping or you’re just tired of hearing it after every respring and reboot when the iDevice is plugged in, a new jailbreak tweak dubbed PowerSoundDisabler ...

    Apple said the comprehensive audits, which are performed by qualified members and representatives of the FLA, will continue through spring and include the manufacturing and ...
