Welcome to the inaugural edition of the Apple Rumour Roundup, Mac|Life’s bi-weekly take on the rumors and speculation surrounding Cupertino. This week, we've got our radar set on the iPad 3. With a launch window set for early next month, the talk about the device has really been heating up. Let’s take a look at a pair of the more interesting rumors that have cropped up recently, both of which come to us courtesy of the Wall Street Journal.
Few would argue that Apple has made a significant impact on the music industry in recent years, and over the weekend the company’s late CEO was honored with a posthumous Special Merit Grammy Award recognizing those accomplishments.
Of course there's iPad 3 rumors, of course there are. You'd be a fool not to expect them. Our only surprise is that they haven't reached such feverish blistered fingers hot levels yet. Maybe it's because Tim Cook's iPhone 4S was such a lukewarm affair compared to the Steve mojo. At any rate, we've got that and a few other spicy bits for you to chew on in this week's muy caliente roundup.
Does the FBI have a file on all of us? Some conspiracy theorists believe so, but it should probably come as no surprise to discover that the Feds definitely had one on the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, dating back to 1991. Curious to read what it says? Thankfully, the 191-page document is now available for all to read, complete with redacted segments. But that’s just the icing on the cake for what’s been happening since this morning -- here’s a look at what else is making news for Thursday, February 9, 2012.
So yeah, Apple still has the moxie to rake in the big bucks, as you’ve no doubt heard from Cupertino’s fiscal first quarter results earlier today. We can’t help but think that this bubble has to burst eventually, but hey, it’s a wild ride while it lasts, right? Unfortunately for U.S. carrier partner Verizon Wireless, the quarterly financials weren’t quite as rosy. Ready to find out more? Then read on and discover all the news that’s fit to print for this Tuesday, January 24, 2012.
So much for a slow weekend for tech news! On Saturday, The New York Times published a lengthy exposé on why Apple manufactures its products in China -- and it’s not just about cheap labor. Then, on Sunday, BlackBerry maker Research in Motion dropped the bombshell most of us have been expecting: After two decades, its co-CEOs are stepping down in favor of a virtual unknown who thus far appears to be towing the company line.
The deafening roar of the CES news cycle has finally subsided, things have started to get back to normal with the coming of a new week that should shed some light on Apple’s new education goals at a media event this Thursday. Cupertino got some good news today, with a huge jump in the ranks as the world’s most valuable brand -- complete with an ironic leap over once-mighty cellphone giant Nokia. But there’s plenty more to read about today, so kick up your feet and have a quick look at what’s making news for Monday, January 16, 2012.
Well, if anything happened that wasn't CES related, this'd be the place to come find it. We were there, we were on the floor, we saw it all, and we've got some on-the-ground stuff from the week in Vegas, but other things were perking out in Applelandia so let's see, on this auspicious Friday the 13th, just what they were.
If you didn't get your Steve Jobs action figure, then you sure better do it soon, because Cupertino is putting the legal smack down on the Chinese manufacturer -- and more stories just like this tucked away in this week's scorching red hot barn burner of the top ten hot Apple stories you might have missed this week.
If you’ve already seen photos of the super-realistic 12-inch Steve Jobs action figure online, you may have already placed bets with your friends as to when Apple would come calling to squash it. If you guessed today, we have a winner! Cupertino is claiming ownership of the late co-founder’s likeness, but the defiant Chinese manufacturer plans to proceed anyway. Get out the popcorn, this one should be interesting! Meanwhile, here’s the rest of what’s making news for this Thursday, January 5, 2012.
