    Last month we reported that US Congressman Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) reached out to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) questioning Apple's "marketing practices of applications for Apple devices. Two weeks later, the Federal Trade Commission responded to Congressman Markey's letter, promising to probe Apple's business practices relating to the concerns expressed. "We fully share your concern ...

    With the release of the new Sandy Bridge-equipped MacBook Pros, users have been expecting clockspeeds of up to 3.4 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost technology. However, it at least a couple of cases, 13" models with Core i7-2620M processors have been reported to stall out at 2.7 GHz when using Windows. The culprit may be high core temperature, which is not being seen when the 13" is running Mac OS X or at all ...

    We're standing (well, sitting) in line in Tampa waiting for the iPad 2. Arrived at 10am, and there were 50 people in line already at the Apple Store. The device doesn't go on sale until 5pm, and the line is full of folk with every possible Apple product (and one weirdo on a Kindle) consuming media and passing the time. Geeky conversations are the norm, and passerbys like to make ...

    The iPad 2 was originally intended to begin sales at 4am Eastern tomorrow, but in a continuing trend, Apple has started this release early.

    Flash content may not be officially supported on iOS devices, but that hasn’t stopped some developers from creating apps that offer workarounds to this limitation. Skyfire may finally have some competition with iSwifter, a new free app for iPad that allows you to not only view Flash videos, but also plays Flash based games as well.

    When you launch the app you're presented with a screen that lets you choose between browsing ...

    On Thursday, research firm IDC published the latest findings from its worldwide tablet shipment research. And the results reflect a substantial loss of market share for Apple's iPad during the 4th quarter. Although some reports make it sound as though Apple is "bleeding" market share, it's important to point out that the iPad was largely the only marketable tablet in existence for a massive ...

    In what could become another middle-of-the-night Internet feeding frenzy, online orders for the new iPad 2 will begin overnight, says Apple. If you don't want to battle the crowds (assuming, of course, that there will be crowds) at your preferred iPad 2-carrying retailer, you can order the refreshed tablet from home at least twelve hours before the 5:00 pm launch of iPad 2 sales at phsyical ...

    If you haven't been following this, iOS 4.3 was released today as expected, an early release before the launch of the iPad 2.

    If you like your jailbreak, don't update to iOS 4.3 at this time. Don't forget to tell any newb friends to not "let their girlfriend accidentally press the update button". Back up your SHSH Blobs manually for even more re-assurance. The Firmware Umbrella - TinyUmbrella

    Apple products usually get a memory boost with every update, most of the time. This has been the case for quite awhile now, with the possible exception of the iPhone. It hasn’t seen a memory increase since 2009 when the 3GS model topped out at 32 GB. That is, until now.
