It's being deemed an "extremely small" recall, but some Verizon iPad 2s have had duplicate MEID codes flashed onto iPads for the Verizon 3G network. One Apple Store employee has already claimed having to send over a hundred units back.
Once the next version of Apple’s mobile operating system becomes available for download, iOS users will have the ability to seamlessly communicate, share files, and wirelessly update their devices. With perks like this, it’s difficult to see how anyone could find anything too hateful in Cupertino’s latest cloud-based creation -- except for cellular carriers. Word around the campfire is that Apple knew word of the their new cloud-based offerings wouldn’t go over well with with telecoms. They were so certain of this that they even elected to keep their two closest North American wireless partners -- Verizon and AT&T -- out of the loop, with the cellular providers learning about the company’s cloud-based offerings at the same time as the rest of the world. Could Cupertino’s snub drive a wedge between Apple and the carriers?
It's been quite a while since the last release in the Dragon's Lair series on iPhone. While ports of classic games tend to come out rapid-fire once the first hits (to leapfrog on the previous game's excitement,) Dragon's Lair 2 is coming out a beefy eighteen months after the first game.
We love our iPhones, and they're utterly spectacular gaming devices. But that doesn't mean we're blind to the wonders of other gaming systems. It would be silly to ignore the successes of developers on other platforms. This year at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, the Nintendo 3DS showed off some fantastic software. With several iOS developers showcasing many different ways to bring 3D apps to iOS (and with us not wanting to shell out $250 for a 3DS,) we decided to make a list of all the games that are coming out for the 3DS that we're hoping will one day get ported over to the iPhone and iPad.
Apple has certainly held its own against a wave of contenders to the tablet throne this year, with only the $399 Asus Eee Pad Transformer coming anywhere near what could be considered modest success. On July 1, HP is going to throw its considerable weight into the mix with the long-awaited webOS-based TouchPad.
Well, it was tons of WWDC news this week. Pretty much iOS 5 and OS X Lion and iCloud were about the only tech headlines anyone noticed. There were a few other things that we took note of, amidst the shuffle, though we must admit, we're pretty stoked about both new operating systems ourselves. But, just in case you missed it, here's a couple treats we couldn't just let pass by without a second look.
Well, of course all the news this week was WWDC and iOS 5 and OS X Lion related. What did you expect? These were the stories that wouldn't stop burning up the Apple newsosphere, and we've got 'em all wrapped up with a pretty bow just for you.
This year's WWDC was a big one. Even without an iPhone to announce, Apple still managed to make a big splash in the developer pool. And speaking of developers, The Apple Design Awards also took place this week, and recognizes 12 applications with outstanding app design. Unfortunately, only two of them are free, but here they are for your downloading pleasure.
