    Those who suspected Google TV would blow Apple TV out of the water are effectively eating their words on the heels of news that Apple TV has thumped Google TV to such an extent that the product, it's makers, and suppliers are reeling from the platform's less than stellar sales.

    According to DigiTimes, Logitech has ceased shipments of its Revue Google TV boxes for the time being, awaiting ...

    The drama surrounding the SHAtter exploit continues. A Dutch dev threatened to leak the code last week, and even though that threat was thought to have subsided, someone apparently did go ahead and leak SHAtter Wednesday. This led to a Twitter fight between p0sixninja and MuscleNerd, whom p0six had accused of being the leaker. Musclenerd denies this, but according to p0sixninja, SHAtter has been burned. ...

    Earlier this week, Skype was the talk of the social networking world when the popular service temporarily bit the dust and sustained an outage that had people wondering what was wrong from every corner of the globe. From desktop to mobile applications, Skype went down for the count, a situation that has since been reversed but not without a lot of additional attention on the popular social ...

    With only days remaining until the dawn of a new year, it seems there's always time to squeeze in yet another celebration of the life and achievements of Apple CEO Steve Jobs. At least that's how the editors at The Financial Times feel, as they have officially named Apple's big cheese as their "Person of the Year" for 2010.

    Of all the factors used to evaluate Jobs for the ...

    Just in time for Christmas, Santa has brought us some new rumors about the iPad 2G, or - as I suspect it will be called - simply the 2011 iPad. The details are subtle enough to be believable: as opposed to rumors that it will have a Retina Display, or will make the owner invisible or convey immortality, these reports merely describe an iPad in a slimmer case, with both front and rear facing cameras and ...

    Apple is working with a Native American tribe to not only help preserve the Cherokee language, but also to advance the language across the iDevice line-up. According to the Associated Press, Apple is both receptive to and supportive of the Cherokee people who want the iPhone, iPod, and iPad to be used as platforms for preserving and perpetuating their language, particularly among younger users of iDevices. ...

    If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, the folks at Apple may receive a genuine compliment from Sony. According to an interesting new report in the New York Times, it sounds as though Sony's next generation PlayStation Portable handheld gaming device will "borrow" some of the winning attributes of Apple's smartphone/mobile-gaming-system known as the iPhone.

    Sony executive ...

    Skyfire for iPad is now available in iTunes ($4.99). The iPhone version was released back in November and it sold so well that developers had to remove it from the App Store temporarily. Developers underestimated the demand for Flash video on the iPhone and users soon overwhelmed the Skyfire servers. These issues were soon worked out, however, and Skyfire has been a huge success ever since.

    Skyfire is a full-featured ...

    Camera+ was a popular alternative camera app in its previous incarnations, making the #3 top seller on the App Store at its peak. Apple rejected it multiple times because the devs kept trying to sneak a mod that used the volume button as an alternative camera trigger past the reviewers. Now it's back, deemed acceptable by Apple, and with even more features than before in a slicker package.

    If you're thinking this is old news, you're not alone. With Apple's rapid expansion of the iPad's retail availability, you would think that AT&T's online storefront would be among the first places beyond the hallowed ground of Apple sales territory to carry the iPad 3G. Incredibly, until this week, the iPad 3G was NOT available from AT&T's online store.

    Don't look for any tremendous ...

    On Wednesday, Sony fired a warning shot across the bow of iTunes. The tech giant is launching a new subscription-based streaming music service - first teased last September - that takes direct aim at iTunes' dominance in the world of digital music and entertainment. But according to Sony, don't expect a blatant iTunes' knock-off. Sony has something different planned. And it's pretty obvious what that ...

Coming after Apple's acquisition of the Stanford University spinoff Siri earlier this year, the new jobs indicate that Apple is planning to implement more elaborate speech recognition functionality in future versions of iOS, ...
