For those of our readers that can't get enough Apple legal news, your ship has come in this week. Yesterday, we told you about a lawsuit mounted against Apple and a few of iOS developers for which alleges that location and usage information supplied by iOS devices to Apple and third-party developers was being shared with advertisers without permission. Today, we've got something a little different, but just as interesting: An allegation against Apple of workplace discrimination.
Count us as among the folks scratching our heads in bewilderment when Microsoft announced they were going to fire up those copying machines and open a chain of retail stores. A new report finds that the effort appears to be faltering at best.
If you've ever made an appointment for the Genius Bar (or other service) at your local Apple Store, then you know how easy it can be to sign up; however, things can get a little hectic when you actually arrive to the store. A new app for employees, coupled with an update for the Apple Store application, however, could change this.
It’s only the tail end of October, but everyone knows that the holiday season is imminent. Apple knows it too, which is probably why they released an update to their Apple Store app on Tuesday which adds engraving, gift wrapping and for some, white iPhone 4s. Say what?!
If you follow the Tao of Apple, this news should come as no surprise to you: As we sit on the cusp of Apple's Back to Mac Event, the company's Online Apple Store is down. Try as you might, you won't be able to buy any of the Cupertino-based company's products without stepping foot into an actual store, at least not until Steve Jobs leaves the stage later this morning. For Agoraphobics who desperately need to get their mitts on a pair of Apple branded ear buds, these are dark times indeed.
If you want an iPad, there's a few ways to go about getting one: You can opt drive to the Apple Retail Store nearest you; less sociable tablet fanatics can navigate to Apple's online retail portal and have one shipped to their front door, and for those lacking scruples or a sense of common decency, you can even wait for some one else to buy one before jumping them for it (no, we're not condoning that sort of behavior). If none of these methods for iPad procurement work for you, don't fret: you'll soon have a fourth option to pick from, as Target has announced that they'll be offering up Apple's netbook-eating darling starting October 3.
Apple announced new Mac Pros in late July, but did not place them on sale until last week. These behemoths feature either 4, 8, or even twelve processing cores. Unfortunately, Apple was estimating up to a 10-day wait to get one. Well, that day has finally come for many who were the first to order.
There was plenty of speculation last night as to why Apple closed down its online store, and now we have some answers. It's not a white iPhone 4 or an "iTV," but a new "Compare Macs" feature, which allows customers to review a side-by-side comparison of the hardware specifications and prices of different systems all at once.
