On Wednesday, Apple announced their financial results for the quarter ending March 26 (technically their fiscal second quarter). There was little bad news to go around, especially with the company’s largest non-holiday quarterly revenue (and earnings) to date.
We’re all Apple fans. But why? Deep thoughts like that -- and 50th issues -- call for a countdown! But don’t worry, we balanced our enthusiasm with a hard-hitting look at the dark side of Apple...
Turning 50 is certainly a milestone, and we’ve been saving something special for our 50th issue: a countdown that examines all the reasons that Apple fans are Apple fans. After all, as the Microsoft Stores so perfectly prove, no other tech titan can inspire the same level of devotion.
But there’s no single reason we love our Macs, iPhones, iPads, and iPods -- in fact, we thought of a lot more than 50. It took some of the most epic staff meetings we’ve had in Mac|Life history -- we haggled, we argued, and we picked on Nic and Flo because teasing them is pretty fun -- but in the end, we emerged with a thoughtful, incisive look at what makes Apple so successful.
While there have been plenty of books written about Apple CEO Steve Jobs, none of them have ever received the man’s blessing -- until now. The executive has agreed to participate in one such book slated to arrive on store shelves in early 2012.
Will they or won’t they? Apple’s release of an iPhone 5 this summer is being widely debated after the WWDC 2011 appears to focus strictly on the future of iOS (and Mac OS), but it appears that two Korean cell phone carriers may be getting the device in late June anyway.
There are few events as influential in the Apple universe as the World Wide Developer Conference. Every year, the best and brightest minds in Mac and iOS software development come together at WWDC to network, sharing their talents, revealing new technologies and generally making being an Apple hardware user better than ever before. We're certain that with WWDC 2011 will be no different.
To mark the announcement of this year's WWDC, we've put together a gallery of 10 awesome moments, spanning the 28 year history of the conference. After taking this trip down memory lane, we're certain that you'll be as stoked to see what this year's WWDC will bring as we are!
It's back! The Mac|Life Show has returned. You might remember last week's epic green screen photos from our new studio and this week we're bringing you the new show in blazing color and stereophonic sound.
This week we already start missing Bertrand Serlet, OS X gets an update and AT&T opens up its piggy bank to buy T-Mobile. Plus, Flo gets a foot taller.
It’s fairly rare to hear about a longtime Apple executive leaving their post -- especially one who’s stuck by the company's CEO for over two decades. Apple’s senior vice president of Mac Software Engineering is doing just that.
Each September, fans of the original iPod wait with teeth clenched in anticipation of Apple’s annual music-themed media event -- all to find out if the beloved iPod classic will live, die or maybe even get an upgrade once more. According to Steve Jobs, you can breathe a sigh of relief -- for now.
Even on his leave of absence, Apple CEO Steve Jobs has kept quite busy with the iPad 2 launch and all. However, it was determined today that he'll have to add something else to his agenda. He was ordered today to answer questions surrounding an antitrust lawsuit that alleges Apple has operated a music-downloading monopoly.
