    Hunch.com released an unscientific study profiling the differences between 388,315 self described Mac and PC users. Their findings confirm what most of us already assumed: Mac users are city dwelling, liberal hipster socialites, with a penchant for the finer things in life like drinking Boylan’s Root Beer to wash down their hummus and vegetarian Shawarma while watching an episode of The Office, the funniest show on Television.

    PC users rather are suburb sitting, Harley ...

    Although the headlines have quieted down with talk of lingering iPad 2 production and shipment delays, the underlying problems that left many waiting weeks for a second-generation tablet continue to threaten the timeliness and availability of iPad 2 stock for the foreseeable future.

    It turns out Cupertino’s Apples are pretty rotten.

    In all of the fervor surrounding the latest iFiasco a small detail seems to be lost on most of the reporting public, including myself: the discovery of the tracking file is old hat. Sean Morrissey and Alex Levinson, two specialists in the field of forensics wrote a book “iOS Forensic Analysis,” wherein they describe how to view the consolidated.db file. The book was published December 5th, 2010.

    The most recent Apple scandal - which is already being called "Locationgate" - has been raging on this and other sites since it was revealed yesterday. If you're coming to this late: Apple is storing all of your location history on an unencrypted file on your iPhone that is backed up to your computer every time you sync. The reasons for this are unclear, as Apple is giving the world its usual silent treatment. But, ...

    The iPhone has been good to Verizon, the largest mobile operator in the US - at least until AT&T is allowed to purchase T-Mobile. On Thursday, the mobile giant "beat the street" by announcing that it more than tripled net income in the first quarter.

    Verizon said that Q1 profits were $1.44 billion (51 cents a share) compared to $443 million (16 cents a share) in Q1 2010. As expected, a certain Apple ...
