    How would you like to have books in your Newsstand application?

    iOS 5 shipped with a new application - or should I say 'folder-looking-thing' that contains all of your magazines, newspapers, and subscriptions of that sort from Apple's online store. For many of us, it is the most useless application that we could have ever asked for because almost all of the subscriptions cost money - something that a lot of us don't feel the need to spend. For this reason, many tweaks have been invented to ...

    Does Siri take up too much room for you?

    If you feel like Siri has a large graphical user interface and you want to shrink it a little to make it appear smaller, then maybe it's time to put Siri on a diet with a new jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Ron Melkhior. The tweak has been dubbed TinyAssistant and it compresses the Siri GUI into an App Switcher-sized window.

    TinyAssistant allows you to lose the, "What can I help you with?" quote bubble and it really tightens ...

    So, you've downloaded Spire, but you want to get Siri functionality.

    Spire is the Siri GUI port that was brought to use by Grant Paul and Ryan Petrich. It works on any iOS 5 iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch (excluding the iPhone 4S since Siri is already there). It isn't a full port; it is a GUI that lacks Siri functionality until the user gets that functionality themselves. There are a few ways to get that functionality. One way is to set up your own Siri server and use your own (or someone else's) iPhone 4S as the go-to to using Siri. This means that you will need to update your own server with new iPhone 4S keys daily.

    If the daily routine of updating your server's keys sounds absolutely cumbersome to you, then there is the painless option of using Siri server hosts. Almost all of them support Spire. There are many ...

    Apple seems to have reached new heights in unit sales and revenues but its devices seem to have won over 75% of the mobile phone profits with just 9% of units sold in the market. Despite its relatively low share of al units, Apple still managed to take in the most revenues and earns by far. Asymco writer Horace Dediu, who is a former Nokia analyst, graphically depicted this for everyone to see:

    Many Apple TV users are reporting a new addition to the menus of their devices recently. The new option brings Genius recommendations for movies and TV shows to their libraries. An interesting thing to note is that the menu originally carried a title that was named “ATV.Menu.Movie.GeniusItem” which suggests that the new feature may have appeared prematurely. Apple seems to have fixed the issue though ...

    At a recent academic lecture by former iPhone product marketing engineer Bob Borchers, the Cupertino colleague of Steve Jobs fondly reflected on how the late Apple CEO "motivated" the first team that designed and created the revolutionary first generation iPhone.

    According to Borchers, Jobs wasn't principally concerned with creating a high-end snazzy mobile device for powering diverse apps. Rather, Jobs wanted ...
