Well, if you're a jailbreaker the you know this was quite a week in the news, and if you care at all about the Internet, you know this was the week the online communities came together to defeat some truly heinous legislation. And if you missed any of that, we've got the hottest stories of the week just waiting for you right here and now.
If you’re in the market for a new digital camera, it usually pays to wait and see what’s announced at the International Consumer Electronics Show, which is winding down in Las Vegas this week. Unlike previous years, digital cameras were eclipsed by other consumer electronics technology this time around -- but that doesn’t mean we weren’t able to find a handful of shooters worth talking about.
It’s the last Friday of the year, and that means the final installment of our daily news recap for 2011. It’s been a busy year for Apple: From Thunderbolt Macs to the iPad 2, OS X Lion to the iPhone 4S and of course, the death of co-founder Steve Jobs, many of us are apprehensive about the future of our favorite tech company heading into 2012. For now, let’s sit back and reflect on the year with a few final news tidbits for this Friday, December 20, 2011.
We may be an Apple-centric publication, but that doesn’t mean every once in a while, something comes along from a competitor which makes us stand up, take notice and even drool a little. We love our iPhone 4S -- seriously, you’d have to pry it from our cold, dead hand -- but the siren song of the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus proves too much to ignore, so we had to venture out and procure one for ourselves. How do the two best smartphones on planet Earth fare against each other?
Probably the coolest hack we've ever seen went down this week, as well as Apple letting a tethering app slip through the store before AT&T and pals whined like little babies and had it pulled. But that wasn't all, there was just about the biggest game of the year and more in the hottest stories of the week.
It's the Halloween weekend and while some people we know will be out waiting for the Great Pumpkin, we'll be inside gaming our scared little butts off, shooting zombies and trying to escape the minions of evil. And we'll be sitting down with a nice cup of steaming hot apple cider because this week was full of hot Apple stories. And there was tons of scoring hot game news this week. See ya on the flipside.
Well despite some sad pandas in the financial prediction racket, Apple is hot hot hot. Sure, their last quarter sales were a wee bit lower than expected, but that was merely the collective intake of breath before the new model iPhone debuted. Naturally you wait until the new handset is out and with the iOS device line driving Apple's profitability, who didn't predict this? Apparently Wall Street. Anyway, Apple's hot whether they like it or not and here's some more weekly hotness.
It's here! It's launch day and the gang over at Cupertino has been busy little beavers this week, dropping software update goodness into our laps and relieving the servers when they get hammered, as they always do. You know things were heating up at Apple HQ and that's why we've got this week's hottest Apple news.
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.
Apple has traditionally shied away from legal action against other companies, an unspoken policy that has become increasingly hard to do as Android-based competitors continue to ape the iOS look and feel. As it turns out, former CEO Steve Jobs personally stepped into the fray in an effort to resolve patent issues with Samsung.
