    A leaked document that outlines employee guidelines at Apple summarizes the company’s commitment to secrecy, allowing little margin for error in a culture which is ruled by social media. The internal policies that are required to be followed by employees was recently revealed by the folks over at 9to5Mac, which depicts the tightly controlled and regulated operation.

    This comes shortly after ...

    Flooding in Thailand continues to take its toll on electronics manufacturers. The latest victim: hard drives.

    Apple’s build-to-order iMacs outfitted with 2TB hard drives now have a shipping estimate of 5-7 weeks. The global hard drive shortage hasn’t affected iMacs with sub 2TB drives, they will still ship within 1-3 days of an order. Before, the BTO 2TB iMacs usually had a shipping estimate ...

    Last year select TJ Maxx stores offered an unprecedented $100 off the $499 16GB iPad a week after Black Friday. A few reports are coming in that they’re back at it this year with the iPad 2.

    The deal, according to a few tipsters on Twitter, replicates last years deal right down to the $399 price tag, except this year it’s the iPad 2 that is on sale. Last year’s sale seemed more like a ...

    Samsung previously aired its TV ad where the Korean company made fun of iPhone users and flaunted their Galaxy S II. Many people seemed to see the humor of the situation while others dismissed it as bad marketing. The advertisement wasn’t the last of Samsung’s antics though as the company continues what seems to be an anti-Apple campaign with images on its official U.S. Facebook page.



    The images suggest that the iPhone 4S is ...

    Apple’s first beta of iOS 5.1 which was issued to developers reportedly doesn’t address the battery problems which many users have experienced thus far. Michael Morgan of ABI Research spoke with the folks over at ArsTechnica about the battery problems which have been reported since the release of iOS 5. The problems which were first noted by existing iPhone users who updated their handset to iOS 5, were reportedly ...

    Jailbreak Stuff holds all of my jailbreak settings. You can make a folder for any of the settings though.

    This jailbreak tweak is dubbed Preference Folders and it's really neat! When you are an avid jailbreaker, chances are that you have a lot of jailbreak tweaks installed and that means that the settings for all of them can add up astoundingly quick. The more that you have, obviously the longer you will need to scroll to find what you are looking for – this can be extremely cumbersome. Albeit cumbersome, jailbreak developer iSam has come up with ...

    Small things amuse small minds.

    Terminal is a powerful tool. But it can be used for fun things too! You can watch Star Wars in Terminal, and now you can open the Nyan Cat on Terminal. The possibilities are endless! To show the Nyan Cat in your Terminal window, you will need to enter a command. There are two different commands for two separate systems:

    BSD
    PHP Code:
    nc -v miku.acm.uiuc.edu 23 
    GNU

    You can make the slide to unlock text say whatever you want it to!

    This new jailbreak tweak is dubbed Slider Enhancer and it allows you some extra options for your slider bar for free. Slider Enhancer is by a jailbreak developer known as Ron Melkhior. It lets you not only adjust the text to be whatever you want it to be, but you can have your battery percentage, your time, your current Wi-Fi network, or your current IP address as the label instead. If you're ...

    How about sending an E-Card for free this year instead of paying money to mail out cards?

    The holidays are almost here and that means it's time to break out the wallet and start buying Christmas cards for your friends and family. Anyone who does this knows that it can get costly. Between buying cards and then mailing them out (depending on how many people you do it for, of course) things can add up generally fast. I know that one year I ended up paying thirty dollars out of pocket ...

    German regulators have some pretty serious questions for Apple to answer.

    Despite Apple's public declaration that it has "stopped supporting Carrier IQ with iOS 5 in most of our products and will remove it completely in a future software update," the tech giant can't seem to escape its ties to Carrier IQ.

    The Carrier IQ software in question is what's known as a rootkit that is installed at a carrier’s request ...

    The pace at which Apple is continuing its international roll-out of the iPhone 4S is staggering.

    Although the company hasn't formally confirmed the launch dates for the new iPhone in Russia and Brazil, local carriers in those nations indicate that December 16th will mark the device's formal debut.

    The launches are expected to be somewhat consequential for Apple given the ...

    This is very easy to do... and it couldn't be a more important feature.

    If you're always paranoid that there's something waiting... watching in the background of your computer, just waiting for the right moment to read your keystrokes, then Terminal might be one of the worst applications that you could be using. It uses your administrator password when you log in as a super user, and if you're a command ...
