    Apple has dropped an exciting little treat for Mac users today.

    Although it hasn't gotten the media attention of the iPad 3 and even the iPhone 5, the upcoming release of OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion is just as deserving of hype as any potential hardware offerings from the tech giant. Such was evident yet again today when Apple released an early beta of the Messages for Mac application, which serves up cross-platform support ...

    Late last night Apple addressed efforts by the Chinese company Proview to take Apple’s iPad off shelves in the country because of Proview’s claim to the trademark on the term iPad in China.



    According to Apple they purchased Proview’s iPad trademark years ago in 10 different countries. Proview refuses to transfer the trademark even though Hong Kong courts have sided with Apple already ...

    Another one of the companies we like (but whose name we occasionally make fun of) is the LA based Stylish people's Good Partner (or SGP - also known as SPIGEN).

    The Valentinus leather case is a combined wallet and case. An all-business flap-with-a-snap keeps it from popping open if you've got a wad of cash in the case. If you're just carrying a couple cards, the case stays together fine, and I kind of wished we could remove the snap-flap. ...

    While simple to invoke, Siri can be a pain to open occasionally. If you have a damaged home button that goes crazy when you press and hold on it, then you may find invoking Siri to be problematic as you have just opened up the App Switcher or found yourself on your home screen instead by mistake. If you’re fed up with having to use the home button and you don’t feel like using up any of your Activator actions, then you can use this new jailbreak tweak dubbed SiriLaunch ...

    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 ...
