News Roundup: The iPhone Buzz Continues, Another Security Update, and More

News Roundup: The iPhone Buzz Continues, Another Security Update, and More

 

 

Cingular may be the big banana when it comes to mobile phone carriers, but the company has plenty of detractors, many of whom probably wish Verizon didn't balk at Apple's demands over the iPhone. A Canadian company called Comwave is jumping into the iPhone name fray, filing suit against Cisco in Canadian court over the iPhone name. While Apple, Cisco, and Comwave wrestle over the iPhone name, one analyst thinks that Apple will sell 135 million iPhones in nine years.

 

If you have Airport Extreme in your Mac, go run Software Update. Apple released an AirPort Extreme update that fixes a security hole in both the server and client versions of Mac OS X. You can also go to Apple's site to get the update.

 

In other news: Windows Vista will be released tomorrow, and some stores are actually opening their doors at midnight for anxious Windows users who want Microsoft's newest operating systems. Maybe you can go to your local store late tonight and load a few Apple commercials on demo PCs running Vista. Speaking of Apple ads, you can watch British versions of Apple's Get a Mac commercials on Apple's U.K. Web site.
