Something of a mixed bag of news kicked off this second week in October on Monday, with rumors of a Mac mini refresh, news that Crazy Taxi will be driving onto iOS devices soon and hey, even a one-click Mac solution for hiding that annoying Newsstand icon -- assuming you never use it in the first place. Read on to find out about all of this and much more...
What sells out even faster than the new iPhone 5? Apparently, the new Lightning dock connector adapters, which are now showing a two-to-three week shipping delay as Apple confirms that new handset owners won't be getting a freebie.
Hope you set the alarm clock and got your iPhone 5 preorder in early if you're hoping to have FedEx or UPS bring it straight to your door, because the shipping estimates from Apple's website have already slipped to two weeks.
Apple CEO Tim Cook and company have yet to step onstage to announce this year's iPhone and already, some entrepreneurial companies in the Far East are taking the hard-earned yuan of their fellow Chinese and sticking it away in their own pockets, promising to one day hook them up with an iPhone 5. If that isn't sad enough, we've got some rumblings of a couple of App Store favorites that may be on life support and more for this Thursday, July 12, 2012.
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.
Confirming Friday’s report that new iPad preorder ship dates have slipped past this Friday’s launch date, Apple says that demand for the new tablet has been “off the charts” -- with many eager buyers already lining up outside Apple retail stores to make sure they get one on March 16.
We’re now at T-minus seven days and counting before the first wave of new iPads come flying into the hearts and minds of their early adopter owners, and already Apple’s online store is feeling the squeeze, with orders now shipping by March 19. But don’t get too bummed out -- there’s likely to be an ample supply at stores nationwide next Friday, assuming you don’t mind duking it out with all of the other procrastinators. Let’s find out what else is making news for this fine Friday, March 9, 2012, shall we?
Following on the heels of CEO Tim Cook’s updates on Siri, the App Store and iCloud, Apple’s Eddy Cue moves on to discuss the new Apple TV, which brings 1080p video playback from iCloud and a “gorgeous” new interface.
So much for underwhelming! Apple announced on Monday morning that the new iPhone 4S has already topped one million preorders -- and that’s just in the first 24 hours. It may look like an iPhone 4 and quack like an iPhone 4, but the iPhone 4S is anything but fowl.
It’s Friday at last, and what a grueling week it has been. Many of you are probably groggy from staying up late (or getting up early) to preorder a new iPhone 4S, hung over from the “Let’s talk iPhone” event or just plain bummed out about the loss of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. But don’t despair -- let’s recap the events for Friday, October 7 before we embrace the weekend.
