By default, Apple’s Safari browser is set to block cookies from third parties as well as advertisers, but it a new investigation has turned up evidence that this may not be preventing Google and others from simply ignoring the setting to better track the ads they are serving up.
It’s been quite a busy Monday evening since our daily recap was put to bed, particularly for those waiting on the rumored iPad 3 next month. A rumor about the announcement date was quickly confirmed, followed by additional confirmation that the next iPad will come packing 4G LTE for AT&T and Verizon.
Sprint to its dealers: “If there’s one rule of the iPhone On Sprint Club, it’s that we don’t talk about the iPhone On Sprint Club.” That’s kind of the gist of a newly leaked memo out of Sprint, which asks dealers not to speculate on whether or not the carrier will be getting Apple’s handset this fall.
Despite recent rumblings about an iPad 3 swinging into stores this fall alongside iOS 5 and the next iPhone, it appears more likely that we’ll see it in early 2012, which is more in line with Apple’s annual update schedule. The good news is, that so-called “Retina Display” rumor continues to persist.
Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: The iPhone will get a nano-sized little brother (or sister), and one of these days, MobileMe will be free to everyone. The difference is, now this information is coming a reliable source not usually known for tossing out wild rumors and speculation.
While this may not come as much of a surprise, given that we're well underway into February, but according to The Wall Street Journal, Apple has begun to manufacture the latest and greatest iPad, that sources are saying should contain a built-in camera as well as a faster processor. The new tablet should also be thinner and lighter than the first edition.
First, The Beatles came to iTunes. Now, it appears the other Holy Grail of Apple events will be taking place soon as The Wall Street Journal is confirming that Verizon Wireless will land the iPhone at an event on Tuesday.
You may recall that last month, we spread word of the scuttlebutt surrounding the possibility of a CDMA iPhone making a debut by the end of the year. At the time, Susquehanna Financial Group told us that a number of overseas suppliers had assured them that they'd been asked by Apple to meet the components necessary for a CDMA handset with a release date in early 2011.
Yesterday, Mac|Life's Matthew Tillman brought us the news that Verizon wasn't about to corroborate any rumors of any new Apple hardware on their network, stating that any iPhone news would come from Apple. It's our normal practice to advise you not to look at an Apple rumor too closely, but with a non-denial coming from the apex of Verizon's management, coupled with another credible source spinning the same yarn, it might be worth while to spend some time giving the possibility of a Apple-branded CDMA handset a long glazed-over stare.
The Wall Street Journal. app initially impresses with both form and function, combining a striking, print-like visual aesthetic with plenty of available content and some helpful navigation constructs. Each section (updated regularly throughout the day) is packed with the latest stories -- many with photo galleries and embedded video clips -- and a scrolling article listing on the right side of most sections makes it easy to flip between stories without returning to a front page. Like the print version, The Wall Street Journal. is second to none for investment news and analysis, and the iPad version lets you easily access current stock quotes.
As previously announced, Apple CEO Steve Jobs took the stage Tuesday night to kick off the eighth annual D: All Things Digital conference (aka D8), and he chatted with his hosts on a range of topics past, present and future.
