    Apple was granted the holy grail of smartphone patents yesterday: a patent on touch screens.

    Thats like owning a patent on water in Africa.

    Apple was finally granted US patent number 7966578 nearly three years after filing for it. They've been awarded control over:



    If you read that as I did, Apple now has full ownership of the "capacitive multitouch interface," otherwise known as "the ...

    On May 19th, MMi reported that China Mobile had reached a definitive agreement with Apple that obligates the iPhone maker to - at some undefined point in the relatively near future - support the Chinese carrier's fourth-generation TD-LTE data network. Although the parties were believed to have "reached consensus," no other details provided with regard to Apple's plans for implementation of the fourth-generation technology. ...

    Round 248 of the Apple versus Samsung legal battle goes to Apple as a US district judge denied Samsung its reciprocal discovery request to get a peak at upcoming versions of the iPhone and iPad. Samsung was forced earlier this year to offer up a number of its upcoming products for Apple to get an early peak in a similar ruling.

    While the courts seem to have favored Apple in this battle, ...

    China is on the heels of the US in the category of countries with the biggest appetite for the App Store and its contents. Based on the findings of a new Distimo study, China has effectively emerged as the second biggest market or Apple App Store downloads in the world, second only to the United States.

    That's pretty impressive, especially since Apple only launched a tailored App Store for Chinese ...

    Amazon is clearly sitting on what may very well be the worst kept secret in tech. Although CEO Jeff Bezos hasn't confirmed his company's forthcoming tablet, he's dropped enough hints for every tech reporter on the planet to stumble over. And based on the latest reports coming out of the far East, it looks like the unnamed Amazon tablet could reach consumers even before the iPhone 5 does this fall.

    DigiTimes reported ...

    There are no shortage of music production applications available to iOS users' fingertips. I myself have used BeatMaker as a minor production tool to kill time while traveling during college. However, my first foray into production was during high school when a friend of mine showed me Fruity Loops. Sadly, it was a Windows only program.

    However, that has now changed. Fruity Loops Mobile ...

    iOS 5 is still a few months away, but that hasn't stoppe jailbreak developers from pouring through the new features of the iOS 5 beta and creating a bevy of tweaks. The new Notification Center seems to be at the forefront of these tweaks in the form of Widgets, and QuickComposer is something I can get behind.

    QuickComposer's function is simple, using the notification center the widget ...

    When it comes down to it, convenience and functionality is what makes many jailbreak applications and tweaks useful. Anything that makes what is done easier and more efficiently is key and popular. Of all the areas of iOS, a component that is generally focused on is the Mail.app.

    There have been recurring complaints from Mail.app users as features are extremely limited. There is not much customization or settings that enhance and revamp your mail experience. One such application, Mail Enhancer, aims at fixing this issue.

According to a press release this afternoon from HealthTeacher, Herbold's new employer, the former Apple executive parted ways with his Cupertino colleagues earlier this month and has now come aboard a youth curriculum provider.

    In February, we covered Piper Jaffray's bold speculation that Apple may finally be gearing up to introduce an entirely new product as soon as 2012. Piper analyst Gene Munster proposed that Apple would use a sizable chunk of its component investments to develop large screen displays, probably for a connected Apple television set of at least 50-inches.

    "While Apple's commitment to the living room remains ...

    Talk about getting started with a bang. According to the findings of a proprietary survey spearheaded by Mike Abramsky, a prominent analyst with RBC Capital Markets, more than three-quarters of iPhone owners will use Apple's iCloud on launch. Those figures were derived from a poll of 1,500 respondents earlier this month.

    In other words, the forthcoming iCloud service could debut with a ...

    Along with the announcement of Final Cut Pro X on the Mac App store, and the updates to Motion 5 and Compressor 4, Apple updated the support documents for these products, all the while telling early adopters to update to OS X 10.6.8, which would be simple enough, if it were available.

    Now, with reports of problems on the new software, it would seem that 10.6.8, a ...
