Apple takes throne as biggest American phone company

apple-iphone

Ever since cell phones first appeared on the scene decades ago, Motorola has dominated the American market. It was the first company to sell a commercial cell phone (as far as I know), but how the mighty have fallen. In fact, Motorola isn't even the biggest American cell phone maker anymore. That coveted title has now been earned by Apple. Neither company makes it into the top five among international phone makers, but this is still a major boon for Steve Jobs and Apple.During the first quarter of this year, Motorola sold a total of 8.5 million phones, but Apple was able to post record sales of 8.8 million iPhones over the same period. It's not that surprising to hear that Motorola's sales are down, but they're down a lot more than you may think.

Apple’s mysterious new “magical” device has created a big stir across the world. What are we supposed to do with this thing? Is it going to replace my desktop? Probably not. How about my laptop or netbook? Still no. So what is it good for? Well, that’s the magic of it. It does many things, but it’s not here to step on anyone’s toes.The name iPad is strangely clever. It probably took Apple an entire 5 minutes to come up with the name. It’s clearly not a notebook computer, and we already have the iBook. How about that other relative, the notepad. Ideas went around, and voila - Apple’s latest thing is the iPad. Names aside, what the heck is this thing good for anyways? What am I supposed to do with this iPad?

What will the iPhone 4 actually look like?

iphone4g-latest.01

We saw the images and video from Gizmodo getting a hold of the lost Apple smartphone prototype from California bar, but is that the real design? Or just a shell to hide all the inner-goodness of what is to come? Designer Antonio De Rosa believes this is not the real iPhone 4G that we saw, but a cheap clever disguise in order for engineers to field test the next-generation Apple device. "If you want my opinion, the shell of that 4G was only a temporary case, because the 2 circular buttons for the volume are very ugly. If it was the real version, Apple may need to change the design after we've seen them on Gizmodo."
