    Joining the pronounced supply shortages of the new iPad 2 are the discounted original iPads. In fact, if you haven't visited Apple's online store in recent days, you may have missed the fact that Apple's supply of the original 16GB Wi-Fi iPads is completely depleted. Even refurbished and clearance first-gen iPads are now difficult to come by.

    Within the last two weeks, finding the first ...

    One of my favorite features of Mac OS X is spaces, the simple feature that allows the user to have multiple desktops to allow different workspaces and separate applications to allow for more seamless multitasking. As someone who's often attempting to do about thirty things at once on my Mac, spaces is my lifeline. Now it looks like this feature may come to another Apple product, the iPad.

    Strangely, ...

    Another prominent longtime Apple executive is leaving the Cupertino, California tech empire. Word broke Thursday that Apple's vice president of worldwide marketing communications Allison Johnson is on her way out. Johnson's position with the company is so high up that she reports directly to Steve Jobs, the company's venerable CEO who is presently on medical leave.

    While few specifics of ...

    Try as they might, Apple will not have an easy time securing the trademark for "App Store." The people at Microsoft simply won't let that happen. And to better ensure that it doesn't, they've hired a linguistic expert to help illustrate why Apple is wrongfully laying claim to a phrase that should continue to exist as generic fair game for all.

    In yet another complaint filed with the U.S. Patent and ...

    The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Apple may be facing a shortage of lithium polymer batteries that are used in its iPod line of music players. The bottleneck appears to be coming from a relatively obscure Japanese chemical maker that was forced to shutdown following the recent disaster in Japan.

    According to the Wall Street Journal, “Kureha, which has a 70% share of the global ...

    [UPDATE: @comex's tweets didn't allege that anyone on the Dev-Team was responsible for the leak, and the suggestion in the original version of this article that he did was an error. I am keeping my graphic, though, cause it's AWESOME]

    With iOS 4.3.1 apparently having been specifically released to burn an exploit held in reserve by @comex, he is now publicly speculating that Apple may have a mole on the ...

    The internet was abuzz with rumors of the past few days reporting that this year's Apple WWDC would not feature any new hardware, and would focus strictly on software (as the invitation suggests.) WWDC has been the place where the iPhone 3G, 3Gs, and 4 have all been announced, so it would seem likely that Apple would announce the fifth-generation iPhone at WWDC 2011. Many reports however, are now suggesting otherwise, ...
