We knew that this day had to be coming, but we probably expected Steve Jobs to make a bigger deal of it by hosting another event in or around San Francisco. Instead, it seems that Apple has (quite quietly) updated the entire MacBook Pro line with several solid upgrades.
If you go over to the Apple online store, you’ll find that the MacBook Pro is now available with your choice of Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors. Well, that’s true of the 15-inch and 17-inch versions.more →
When Steve Jobs began to announce the new iPhone OS 4 features last week, the excitement was palpable. Years of anticipation finally realized with the addition of multitasking as well as other tent-pole features. That was the climate of the room until the very end when Jobs casually mentioned during the Q&A that many of those shiny new features you were just made to drool over were not going to be available on the iPhone 3G (so iPhone 3GS and newer only).
At no point was our good ‘ol metal battle ax iPhone (first generation) mentioned. Steve Jobs has now confirmed what many had assumed.more →

The Apple iPad has only been on the market for less than a week and it hasn’t even launched in Canada yet, but that hasn’t stopped a Digitimes analyst from predicting the future of the platform. While the iPad is bigger than the iPhone, it seems that we could be getting an iPad nano too.

Being magical and all isn’t just a marketing tactic, iSuppli found there’s a lot more to the iPad than initiaullay estimated.

Rather than focus their energies on innovating the industry and moving forward with new and exciting technology, it seems that these two juggernauts are more interested in duking it out in court. As you may have heard, Apple filed a legal complaint against HTC and it seems like this complaint could have some merit.
More specifically, the US International Trade Commission (ITC) has voted and agreed to further investigate the complaint put forth by Apple, saying that HTC stole some patents from the Cupertino-based electronics company. Steve Jobs is entering battle mode again.more →
Feel like taking a few steps backwards on the technological innovation timeline? It must be nice to have a glorious touchscreen and the freedom of being wireless, but sometimes you like the nostalgic feel of a corded desk phone. Now you can combine the two.
At long last, an adapter has been created that is aptly called the Desk Phone iPhone Dock. As you can quite plainly see, it’s a dock for your iPhone that effectively converts it to a $10 corded phone you could probably buy from Radio Shack.more →
Ever since the original Apple iPhone launched way back in 2007, thousands of customers have complained about how poor the network performance was with the iPhone. AT&T’s exclusivity over Americans gave them little choice but to put up with it or get another phone.
Could the shackles be broken? If the rumors of a CDMA-equipped iPhone destined for Verizon Wireless, why would Apple and AT&T be continuing the a relationship by working closely with Apple to rectify the network issues.more →

As you may have heard, Apple has filed some legal action against HTC regarding some of its cell phone technology relating back to the iPhone. HTC disagrees and has issued a press release to express the company’s position as such.
HTC states that it “will fully defend itself” against any lawsuits and legal action that Apple may take.
