With the international release of the iPad 2 well underway, thoughts are beginning to turn to what Apple could possibly have up its sleeves next. One product that we know of already is the public release of OS X Lion in the early part of this summer. If a new rumor is to be believed, it would appear that Apple should have no troubles meeting this deadline, as it appears the latest and greatest OS X could already be nearing "Golden Master" status.
We've seen a lot of new Apple hardware come our way over the past year. While many tech pundits are still sounding off on what was Cupertino's greatest achievement of 2010, others are smacking their chops in anticipation of what 2011 may have in store. With the Verizon iPhone a certainty, the buzz for the upcoming year has come to focus squarely on what's next for the iPad, with many speculating that the iPad 2 will be released to consumers on either April 2 or April 9.
The past couple years, Apple has really seemed to embrace the themes of touchscreen technology. Rumors out of DigiTimes say that the company is now testing a new touchscreen all-in-one iMac desktop computer.
Just when many thought print media was going the way of the dodo, Apple released the iPad and suddenly content is exploding from every direction in the universe. From magazines, to newspapers, to television networks, the iPad seems to be the go-to device for delivering content these days, but Apple may have a few tricks up its sleeves when it comes to newspaper subscriptions and the iPad.
Yikes! First Apple's own Snow Leopard cut support for PowerPC processors, and now it's highly possibly that Firefox will follow suit. Firefox director Mike Beltzner himself has proclaimed that he's gathering data on the number of PowerPC users use Firefox, but it's unlikely that they will be supported anymore.
The rumor merry-go-round with Apple's foray into television continues to churn. The latest has Apple possibly being in far along talks with News Corp. to give iTunes consumers the chance to rent TV shows for 99 cents, as well as being in talks with other companies.
Frustrated by the lack of iPhone 4s on Apple's floors? We're boggled by the fact that you still can't walk in an Apple store and buy an iPhone 4 on the spot. Well, according to Rodman & Renshaw analyst Ashok Kumar, this should change by the end of September.
Kumar says Apple needs to supply more iPhones to surpass their current earnings and sell 14 million new handsets in the next few months, and 15 million by the end of the year. He says that once they catch up on current orders, more iPhones will show up in stores.
Most of us are aware that there's a rumor going around that the new Apple TV will be renamed the iTV--an easy shift to gloss over, coming from a company that created the iMac, iPod, iPhone, iPhone, and named their main software suites iLife and iWork. But, most of us are not aware that there is a 55-year-old TV network in the UK named ITV, and apparently neither is Apple (or maybe they just don't care).
