While one has to wonder if it might be "too little, too late," for the white iPhone 4, apparently one analyst thinks the "mystique" factor of the iPhone could still result in a lot of sales for Apple. A lot of sales, as in 1-1.5 million!
There's officially no good reason to pay more than 99 cents for any game on the App Store today. We always thought Valentine's Day was the kind of holiday that specialized more in cheap pink teddy bears than smartphone software, but apparently we were wrong. The past couple of weeks have been positively flooded with huge iOS video game sales from major publishers, and now Sega, Capcom, and Namco are getting in on the action. Some of their very best games are included so check out the full list.
Everyone knows about what a great place the Macworld Expo is for discovering great new Apple-centric products. Those who have attended the Expo can also attest to how much cash you can spend over the course of a visit to the Expo's many vendors and companies. If you're not careful, you could go in a rich man, and by the end of the day end up a gadget-laden pauper. Fortunately, starting year, visitors to the event will also be able by trading in their old iPhones to e-Cycle in exchange for some brand new greenbacks, making the purchase of new toys a little less painful.
While the iPad may still be selling just as fast as it was when it first hit the scene last spring, the same can't be said for magazines publishing special editions formatted for the device. According to a report from the folks at electronista, the number of people purchasing iPad periodicals has been in steep decline over the past few months.
If you were browsing the App Store this evening, you might have noticed a recurring theme in the top paid apps in the App Store. That theme being pretty much all the apps are by Electronic Arts. Why? The reason could be because the developer has made just about all of their apps 99 cents, including those for the iPad!
As initial sales reports begin to trickle in for the hundreds of retails across the holiday from the biggest shopping weekend of the year, Apple seems poised to post some pretty big numbers according to various analysts. According to their reports, the iPad and MacBook Air seem to be going hand in hand in flying off the shelves.
Following rumblings in recent weeks that Apple is facing yet another iPhone 4-related challenge with “Glassgate,” it appears the company has pulled all slide-on cases for the handset from their retail stores over concerns about dirt causing scratches and cracks.
If you’re in the market for a third-party charging cable or car charger for your MacBook because Apple’s own solutions are too expensive, you better act fast -- the sun may be setting for good on at least one company’s option.
When Steve Jobs talked up iBooks earlier this year, it sounded like it had the potential to put reigning e-book champions such as Barnes & Noble and Amazon on the ropes.
However, after six months of offering up downloadable text content to capable iOS devices, it appears that the once seemingly mighty contender hasn't been able to do much more than land a few rabbit punches. Despite the iPad's rabid popularity, neither major publishers, nor the book buying public have embraced iBooks.
After more than half a year online, Apple's iBook Store is still only offering up approximately 60,000 titles. When held up against the 700,000 titles offered by Amazon for their Kindle reader software and hardware solutions, Cupertino's library looks pretty weak. Did we mention that about half of the titles available as iBooks are also available from Project Gutenberg? C'mon Steve, this is embarrassing.
