Once called a hobby, the Apple TV is now selling out in many Apple retail store locations across the country. Because of this, at least one research analyst is predicting sales of 1 million units per quarter, which is one-third the sales of the iPad.
Apple is rightfully proud of their Retina Display technology first introduced in the iPhone 4 and now carried across to the iPod touch, and they’ve chosen their latest television commercial to tout the feature.
If you’ve often wished you could deposit checks easily into your PayPal account, the company finally answered your prayers on Tuesday night with an update to their iPhone app which now allows check capture and deposit.
Even though the new Apple TV is a streaming-only device, you can still rent and watch TV shows and movies right from within iTunes.

A few weeks ago, we shared with you the fact that market research company ComScore did the math to reveal that as awesome as the iPhone is, the device's marketshare was dwarfed when compared against the figures currently being enjoyed by Android-powered handsets. The report was a perfect example of what most folks who chase Apple news around all day already knew: While Apple was selling all the iPhones they could make, crippled by an exclusivity deal with AT&T and the fact that unlike Google's promiscuous flavor of the month Android OS, iOS is locked to Apple-produced hardware, making for a sales situation that put Google at the top of the heap. As much as we'd like to say that it wasn't the case, it appears that the number-crunchers are back to rub the noses of the Apple-faithful in the mess once again. This time around, The Nielsen Company is swearing up and down that according to their research, Android is the most popular operating system among those who purchased smartphones in the United States in the past six months.
You know how there's exciting news, and then there's exciting news? Well, here it goes: it's time you update the Netflix app on your iPhone and iPod touch, because the app now supports video out. This means exactly what you think it means--you can use your iPhone 4 or 4th-generation iPod touch to send streaming video content available on Netflix directly to your television. All you need is a pair of Apple AV cables to hook up your phone and your TV.
Mmm, delicious candy. The vibrant colors of these cases sent us into a sugar fiending frenzy. Though the cases might be too neon for some tastes, they are definitely the kind of protective covering your average tween could use when it comes to keeping that expensive piece of hardware perfectly intact. The case also includes a rubber lining that cushions the iPhone's glass backing, though that logo on the back is a little large for our tastes.
