All Googled out from the company's two-hour keynote extravaganza this morning? We can't blame you -- after all, we've never seen any Apple executives skydiving over Moscone West to show off future products! However, today's recap is guaranteed to be 80 percent Google-free -- and the 20 percent we do chat about might make App Store lovers a little green with envy. So let's skydive right into the news for this Wednesday, June 27, 2012.
Laugh if you want, but we love Jamba Juice. We also happen to rather like PayPal, which makes it easy to spend the money we make selling our old junk on eBay that would be otherwise cluttering the house. So it would seem that being able to buy our Peach Pleasure or Strawberries Forever smoothies at Jamba Juice with our PayPal account would be a match made in heaven -- assuming there was one near us, which there is sadly not. But for those who do, enjoy! We hate you. (Just kidding!) Here’s what else is happening for this Thursday, May 24, 2012.
Another weekend is here, and it’s sure starting to feel like summer. After delaying a new iPhone until October of last year, Apple is surprising us again by shifting its annual iTunes Festival music event in the U.K. from July to September, but don’t worry: There should be plenty of summer fun coming from Cupertino, most likely in the form of OS X Mountain Lion and new Macs. In the meantime, keep up with all of the day’s highlights for this Friday, May 18, 2012.
Who knew “jailbreak” could be considered a dirty word? Apparently someone at Apple thought so, which is why the word was censored from the iTunes Store for the better part of Wednesday night and Thursday. Everything is back to normal now, but the hacker community sure got a kick out of it while the fun lasted. So what else is making news today? Glad you asked. Read on for everything else this Thursday, May 17, 2012 has to offer.
It’s no secret that iPhone users have been quietly slipping over to T-Mobile here in the U.S. -- all it takes is an unlocked device to free you from AT&T’s ball and chain. Unfortunately, the iPhone can’t take advantage of T-Mo’s 3G network -- but that will soon change.
Apple and AT&T have been making big news since last Friday, when they announced that off-contract iPhones can finally be unlocked from Ma Bell’s ball and chain. While it appears the carrier is also unlocking these handsets for in-contract military service members, T-Mobile is looking forward to enlisting a few good (new) iPhone users.
By this point, you’ve got to be feeling bad for T-Mobile -- even smaller regional carriers have been nabbing the iPhone 4S while Apple continues to snub the fourth-place U.S. carrier. nTelos is the latest to bring joy to five states later this month.
If you’re reading this from one of the 25 countries that just started selling the new iPad today, welcome! (Sorry, we don’t know all 25 ways to say welcome in those countries, so we’ll stick with the universal language of English.) Now 25 more countries will get to experience the overheating, the poor Wi-Fi and the battery that charges beyond 100 percent -- although all of you will be sitting out the 4G LTE party for now, so you’ll have to do your best to burn through your monthly data plan with 3G instead. Enough sarcasm -- let’s get on with the show for this Friday, March 23, 2012!
How bad are things for fourth-place U.S. carrier T-Mobile? Apparently, so bad that they issue a press release to announce fourth-quarter operating results which mentions being “negatively impacted” by the release of the iPhone 4S on three other carriers, right in the first sentence.
What a week! Apple is swimming in more cash than they know what to do with, the Macworld/iWorld show is winding down in San Francisco and the EFF is working overtime to keep jailbreaking legal. What’s that? You didn’t hear about that? Why, you’ve come to the right place, then… step right up and have a heaping handful of the best and brightest news for this Friday, January 27, 2012.
