Punditslooking for link-bait notwithstanding, the fears of some analysts and investors seem to be turning a corner today, from emotionally disappointed, to looking at the facts – Apple has put together a world-wide iPhone lineup that attacks every pricing segment head on with iOS devices:Read More >
The Mac platform has three major Internet browsers: Apple's Safari, Google's Chrome, and Mozilla's Firefox. All three are very capable browsers that can run the latest webpages and web applications. Previous reviews have given Safari the edge, but all three have been recently updated. In light of these new updates, it is time to take a look at all three again and see how they compare.Read More >
Let's waste no time and just dive right into why Apple's 'Let's talk iPhone' special event is going to be huge:Read More >
In the 60's, after President Kennedy's assassination, Simon & Garfunkel brought us the Sound of Silence. That tone can be sensed again this week in for the form of Fire, that has all but gone out. Amazon's gushing moment came from their new line of Kindle's launched this past Wednesday. But since Friday, the absence of any enthusiasm and chatter about the devices, specifically the Kindle Fire, has been deafening.Read More >
Apple is set to announce a new iPhone next week. With the announcement of a new iPhone, Apple should be releasing a new version of their mobile operating system, iOS 5 and the new cloud service, iCloud.

On October 4, 2011 the day of reckoning arrives — well, at least for Apple's smartphone competitors. October 4th is the day that Apple talks to us about iPhone 5 and also releases iOS 5 and iCloud.
While we expect the iPhone 5 to sport an über cool design, with new features we didn't know we needed until we see them, the power of iPhone 5 will be in the software it sports: iOS 5 and iCloud. This 1-2-3 punch is going to drive other phone manufacturers nuts. While they try and copy the hardware, they are totally dependent on Google – and perhaps some day Microsoft – to come up with something similar or something better (wishful thinking).Read More >

The Mac App Store (MAS) lacked most of the valuable software when Apple first debuted it last January. At that time it was a poor place for users to find new software. Most of the apps on the MAS were of low quality, except for Apple's.
