Last Friday was busier than normal for Apple-related news, and that trend continued right into the weekend, which saw the arrival of iPhone 5-compatible nano-SIMs at T-Mobile retailers, yet another free iCloud storage bump for former MobileMe subscribers and AT&T slashing its return window in half -- which is likely to just send more iPhone buyers to Apple, where a 30-day return window still exists.
So how about that YouTube app? With Apple confirming that YouTube isn't being invited to the iOS 6 party, it certainly appears Cupertino is working hard to ditch as much of Google as humanly possible from its mobile OS. Thankfully, iOS 5 seems as if it will be safe, so if you've got an older device or no plans to upgrade right away, you can keep 'Tubin' the same way you have been. Meanwhile, here's what else is making headlines for this Monday, August 6, 2012.
June has finally arrived, and with it comes a tidal wave of tech news for what’s generally a pretty lazy last day of the work week. We can’t report on everything, but we’ve managed to distill the day down to the five coolest stories you won’t want to miss -- so adjust your seats into a launch position and let’s dive right into this freaky Friday, June 1, 2012.
You wouldn’t think so much drama and hand-wringing goes into the creation of something as simple as a SIM card, but where international standards are concerned, compromises must be made. Research in Motion and Motorola have done just that with Apple’s proposed nano-SIM design, which appears to have the majority of votes already.
A new report claims that Apple has adjusted its proposed nano-SIM standard to address complaints by Nokia, with a final vote expected soon -- even though the technology itself isn’t expected before 2013.
The weekend is here, and with comes the final installment of our daily recap for the month of March. But hey, don’t be sad or blue -- there will be plenty more tech news coming on Monday, when we jump head first into the month of April and see what new and delightful surprises the spring season might bring us. In the meantime, sit back and ride out the rest of March by catching up on the news for Friday, March 30, 2012.
March is winding to a close and our attention turns to April and beyond, wondering what exactly Apple might have up their sleeves for us in the coming months. Meanwhile, competitors like Nokia and HTC are ramping up their Windows Phone initiative with two highly anticipated devices arriving on the same day (!?!) as the kingpins of the cell phone market duke it out over a proposed “micro-SIM” standard that promises to shrink our handsets even further. If you missed today’s news, sit back and soak in what’s happening on this Monday, March 26, 2012.
