    Ticonderoga Securities, using their trusted "Apple Barometer," reported Apple had "strong growth year-on-year for April," with sales up 113% compared to the same month last year.

    These numbers aren't raw sales numbers on products shipped, but rather measure sales of component suppliers to Apple in their supply chain. The logic is if Apple needs to purchase more supplies (LCDs, touch screens, etc) ...

    File this under amazing.

    Nicholas J. Bryan and Ge Wang, students at Stanford University, have developed an application that turns your iPhone into a piece of scratchable vinyl.
