    Try as they might, Apple can't hide everything. Although the notoriously secretive company rarely dishes on unannounced projects, sometimes they don't have to for us to pick up on clues regarding forthcoming product releases, refreshes, or updates. The latest nugget of knowledge comes from the first beta of iOS 5.

    According to a developer at iFans, references to an "iPod 4,2" have been ...

    Time magazine's Techland published an interesting report this morning about the growing number of iOS apps that make authorities nervous. As it turns out, the list of apps causing worry for police extend far beyond the controversial DUI checkpoint apps that recently prompted Apple to revise its App Store review policies and guidelines.

    The genesis of this story stems back to a hacker group (go ...

    Yesterday I had the pleasure of sitting down with Jon Chong the co-founder of CaseFactori, a new iDevice case company.

    While Chong and fellow founder CheeKian Teng (C.K. for short) do turn out some nicely made iDevice cases, their inspiration runs a little deeper. The two have combined their love of iDevices and their passion for giving back into a single company.

    Their motto: A case with a cause.

    Every customer who purchases a case from CaseFactori gets to choose which charity a small portion ...

    There may have been more to the meeting we covered yesterday than initially expected. On Wednesday, MMi briefly touched on the speculation set off by a Chinese newspaper report indicating that Apple COO Tim Cook had engaged in high-level talks with the chief executives at China Mobile - a carrier that boasts the largest subscriber base in the world (roughly 611 million subscribers).

    Although the iPhone ...

    Although reports surfaced this week that Apple has joined the board of directors of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group, it's more accurate to report that Apple was "named" to the board. If you're unfamiliar, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group guides the development of standards and licensing for bluetooth technology. So from the organization's perspective, having the sage input of knowledgeable board ...

    On Thursday, infamous hacker Daniel Spitler pleaded guilty to two felony charges in a Newark, New Jersey federal court (one count of conspiracy to gain unauthorized access to Internet-connected computers and one count of identity theft). These very serious charges carry with them a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine - each.

    Spitler, however, wasn't alone as justice was served Thursday. ...

    On Tuesday, MMi's Matt Savoca posed a burning question within the hallowed forums of MMi: "Hey, Apple…. Where's 10.6.8?"

    Today, Apple answered Matt along with the rest of the Mac world by releasing Mac OS X 10.6.8, the eighth maintenance update for Snow Leopard. It's available now through a Software Update from Apple. All told, it's a release we expected sooner rather than later, especially since the roll out of Final Cut Pro X earlier ...

    According to a report by 9 to 5 Mac, in a meeting with T-Mobile spokespeople ahead of the NYC Pepcom event, they were told there are nearly 1 million iPhones operating on T-Mobile's network in the U.S.

    That is a lot of unlocked phones. While the majority of the unlocked iPhones are pre- iPhone 4 micro-sim models, the spokesman for T-Mobile did say a number of users had "taken the scissors" ...

    Fresh off the news that Apple has been awarded a patent on multi-touch devices, Apple has now been awarded yet another patent that directly points to third-party widgets to be built in iOS 5's new notification center.

    For anyone keeping up with the jailbreak community, this comes at no surprise at all. Many developers have already debuted Proof-of-Concept widgets ...

    According to the findings of a new survey by Meraki, a cloud services provider, iPad users have an appetite for WiFi like a sumo wrestler at an all-you-can-eat buffet. iPads use significantly more Wi-Fi data than the typical mobile device. How much more, you ask? The average iPad, Meraki found, consumes over 400% more Wi-Fi data than the average Android, iPod, and iPhone.

    Seven thousand frames of hand drawn animation for a three minute and 51 second music video is pretty dang impressive. Even more impressive is the fact it was all done on an iPad with the brushes app.

    Animator Shawn Harris drew each of the individual frames on the iPad which then recorded each of the frames as soon as he removed his finger from the canvas on the iPad. Brushes has a feature that allows ...
