Apple continues to sit on the sidelines of the mobile wallet initiative, but that isn't stopping the carriers from banding together in an effort to knock aside any momentum Google Wallet may have picked up thus far.
Fourth-placed U.S. carrier T-Mobile may not be in that position for very long if they keep having quarterly earnings reports like this, with more than a million new customers added to its "uncarrier" ranks.
So how was everyone's first weekend with the iPad Air? We managed to place our online order in the wee hours of Friday morning for in-store pickup later the same day, and our local Apple retail store apparently only had a handful of folks lining up to get theirs when the doors opened. Were you among the first to buy one this past weekend? If so, chime in with your thoughts on Apple's latest tablet in the comments below.
It's been almost a week since Apple's media event that unveiled more products than you could shake a stick at, which means that pundits have had ample time to scrutinize the keynote and weigh in on the fate of the company. Overall, the event lacked surprises, but all of the free software available the same day certainly was enough for us. Hungry for more? Tune into Cupertino's quarterly earnings call, which kicks off in just a few short hours...
Whew! That was quite a Tuesday. While most of us got pretty much what we expected out of Apple’s special event in San Francisco yesterday, few of us probably anticipated that OS X Mavericks would actually be released the same day, yet alone all of the new iLife and iWork apps.

By now you've probably heard the news: Apple has confirmed its rumored media event for next Tuesday, Oct. 22, as speculation ramps up about exactly what Cupertino has in store for the rest of the year. There are certainly a lot of possibilities, with new iPads and a release date for OS X Mavericks and the new Mac Pro at the top of the list. Our personal wish list? Overhauls for the existing iWork, iLife and Aperture applications, which are long overdue. Hey, we can dream, can't we?
Fourth-placed U.S. carrier T-Mobile may not stay in that position for much longer if they keep launching initiatives like those unveiled on Wednesday night in New York for unlimited data and texting worldwide.
Mobile prepaid is becoming a big business as more and more customers look to make an exit from onerous two-year agreements imposed by the nation's big carriers, and now Target is ready with a prepaid bright spot of its own.
T-Mobile's U.S. division has been shaking up the wireless industry in recent months, but is any of this change having a real effect on its bottom line? Thanks largely to the iPhone, all signs point to yes.
