The biggest news this week wasn't really all about Apple, but it was their week to shine in their financials, Google's chance to show off their new cloud storage, and Sprint's chance to show us how losing a LOT of blood wasn't really a horrible thing.
Could Apple be getting kickbacks from travel agents? It might appear so, given how the company announced ticket availability for WWDC 2012 in the wee hours of the morning today for West Coast developers, which pretty much ensures the event will be packed with plenty of out of towners come June 11. While you mull that conspiracy theory, let’s recap the news for this wonderful Wednesday, April 25, 2012.
While the iPhone dominated smartphone activations in the first quarter at AT&T and Verizon, the numbers look more bleak at third-place Sprint -- until you look closer and realize Apple’s handset is actually a tourniquet for the carrier’s bleeding.
(In our best Robin Williams from Good Morning, Vietnam:) Good morning, MacLife.com! That’s right… thanks to your traffic to our weekday evening news recaps, we’re now happy to offer you twice the fun each day, starting right now. You’ll now get 10 bite-sized news stories each weekday -- five in the morning and five in the evening -- so you don’t miss a single interesting bit of tech news! Let’s kick things off with a recap of a few stories that made news since our Tuesday night edition went live, shall we…?
Apple fired up the Software Update engines today to push out a new AirPort Utility update (or two!), and as January winds down we’re looking ahead to the inevitable announcement of a new iPad next month, along with a cascade of companion updates such as iOS 5.1 and most likely, the OS X Lion 10.7.3 which has been simmering with developers for a number of weeks. With that in mind, here’s what the tech world has been talking about on this Monday, January 30, 2012.
Going out of the country for a few months? Apple will begin selling unlocked, contract-free iPhone 4S handsets online here in the US. The 16GB model will go for $649, 32GB for $749, and 64GB for $849. It's not a bad price to pay, but if you're attracted to Verizon or Sprint you should avoid going this route and purchase the handset for that service instead.
The big news of the today is undoubtedly iOS 5 and iCloud, but Apple and its third-party developers have been pushing out updates and little pre-Halloween tricks and treats all day long as well. But that’s not the only thing going on for this mid-October hump day -- here’s the rest of the news for Wednesday, October 12, 2011.
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.
There’s less than 24 hours before Apple’s big media event on the company’s Cupertino campus and the rumor mill is in high gear. Here’s all the news you need to know for Monday, October 3, conveniently put together in one place!
Closer and closer we get to the rumored release date of the next generation of iPhones. And, true to form, the rumor mill stories are all starting to get more and more overlapping and similar. October 4th is almost universally agreed as the Go-Date and things are starting to gear toward a two model release. Well, then, what else is going down?
