It was a rare moment on Monday, as technology failed Apple CEO Steve Jobs during his WWDC 2010 keynote. While trying to show a demo of The New York Times website on both an iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 to demonstrate the company’s new Retina Display, the Wi-Fi choked and forced Jobs to move onto the next thing on his list. But could it have been the fault of the iPhone 4’s own drivers?
The FBI spoke on Thursday saying that it was going to begin looking as to what went awry in the AT&T security breach of iPad email addresses. Since then, AT&T has acknowledged the flaw on their site. Apparently about 114,000 iPad 3G users' emails were hacked.
We all know how much the popularity of the iPad has surged since its release. It's been embraced by millions worldwide. But, as AT&T's leak yesterday alluded to, apparently our Washington politicians love it as well.
Engadget has confirmed some leaked information that originated from modmyi.com today. AT&T will be offering a great deal for people that recently purchased the iPhone 3GS. Is this more AT&T goodness meant to retain subscribers as rumors mount about a version of the iPhone coming to Verizon in six months?
Apple released information to developers today via e-mail and their News and Announcements for iPhone Developers news feed asking for them to begin the submission of iOS 4 compatible apps. If you are a developer all you have to do is log into your iTunes Connect account to get started. Once completed your app will be available for downloading after the release of iOS 4 on June 21st.
Are you a new developer anxious to see how many apps you've sold on your first day of sales in the iTunes App Store? If your answer was yes then today is your day! Apple has released iTunes Connect Mobile an iPhone and iPod touch app that allows developers to view the statistics about their app sales while away from their computer.
Well, turns out the rumor mill was on par this time around. Team Fortress 2, one of the biggest multiplayer first-person franchises (and named one of the funnest games by our sister magazine, PC Gamer), is now available to Mac gamers everywhere.
TF2 will feature Steam Play just like all of the other Valve titles, so if you've already purchased it for the PC platform it should be available to you right now.
You may have heard tell of there being a wee bit of a privacy breach involving the iPad yesterday. The short of it is that a whole lot of iPad 3G users had their Email addresses and the ICC-ID information thrown out into the open air for everyone to see.
Who's to blame for the breach? There seem to be two different camps on this issue growing in the Apple blogosphere: One blaming Apple, the other blaming AT&T.
By the time Steve Jobs took the stage for his keynote address at WWDC 2010, the tech world had already seen dozens of leaked photos of iPhone 4 prototypes, and might be forgiven for dismissing the announcement as old news. Of course Apple still had plenty of surprises in store: more details about the iPhone 4's unique design and hardware, its dual-camera system, and the flash FaceTime feature and iMovie app. Apple hadn't started taking preorders as we went to press, but we were lucky enough to get hands-on time with iPhone 4 immediately after the keynote--and walked out with our credit cards burning rectangular-shaped holes in our wallets.
