    Verizon Chief Financial Officer Fran Shammo, in an interview with Reuters at the Global Technology Summit, confirmed among other things that Verizon would be getting the next iPhone at the same time as AT&T.

    While few doubted the staggered release of the iPhone 4 would continue with the next iteration, hearing it from Shammo puts the issue to rest. Also, Shammo said the Verizon version of the next iPhone would ...

    Wading through the recently uncovered iCloud patent an interesting tid bit emerges. In the patent there is the option to "Sync partial music."

    This feature likely refers to the "local caching" of music stored on Apple's cloud based servers. What this means is when a playlist or group of songs is synched to your iDevice a small portion of each song, usually the beginning, is stored locally on the ...

    Beginning this summer, developers will be able to use Qualcomm tools to write augmented reality apps for the iPhone. The move comes one year after Qualcomm released some pretty impressive - and free - software tools for Android. Now, iOS devs can capitalize on the "kit" in question, a development that will likely provide no shortage of incentive behind the more routine creative of iOS augment reality applications. ...

    A class action lawsuit filed against AT&T is alleging the company is "systematically" overstating data usage for iPad and iPhone users.

    The group of lawyers heading the suit hired an independent computer firm to measure every time a group of iPhones and iPads used data in some way. Then they compared the observed data usage to the data usage AT&T claimed the devices used on their monthly bills. The lawyers claim that AT&T systematically ...

    Who would have thought that the next app to use the Unreal Engine would not be a game, but instead be a tool to help drivers adjust to a new route? Bay Bridge Explorer is a new free app that is compatible with all iOS devices and gives drivers a chance to see what the new route will look like when construction is complete after the Memorial Day weekend.

    The Bay Bridge has been undergoing major seismic upgrades for the last few years ...

    Call it a coincidence or mere happenstance, but on the same day we get news that Apple is ramping up its data storage facilities around the US, word comes that Apple has apparently sealed the deal (finally!) with several of the top labels in the music industry. Naturally, this development suggests that Apple is inching ever closer to rivaling both Amazon and Google with its very own cloud-storage and music ...

    The wonder-kid I/O born of illegitimate relations between Apple and Intel might be in for a custody battle soon.

    Taking a gander at Intel's trademarks page, the 10Gbps Thunderbolt I/O is clearly listed. However, looking for a trademark filing in both Canada and the United States turns up empty on Intel's behalf. Instead, Apple turns up as the owner of the Thunderbolt trademark.

    For months, we've been hearing about Apple's comprehensive preparations for the company's new 500,000 square-foot data center in North Carolina. While myriad clues exist as to how Apple may ultimately employ such resources, the folks in Cupertino are remaining tight-lipped on the cloud-related rumors that seem poised to become reality at any moment.

    Still, if there was any doubt about the massive server ...

    Any day now. That's what we're hearing is the timeframe for Apple to announce it's yearly staple known as the "back-to-school" sales bonanza - an annual occurrence that typically serves up more than a few sweet promotions for customers in the market for a brand new Mac.

    Of course, speculation surrounding the established promotion's return isn't surprising in the least, as Apple traditionally opts for ...
