    Browsing various AT&T iphone related forums, pre-order customers are livid ... to ssy the least. Like my wife and I, we ordered our iphones at the AT&T store, asked all the right questions (we thought), and left with the understanding that our purchase would be back ordered. If you knew the ancient state of our current cell phones, you'd understand why that was a perfectly understandable representation by the AT&T sales person. But . . . as furious AT&T online discussion groups blast AT&T, had we not pre-ordered the iphone 4s, we could have walked into any of their stores...

    The phone was stolen Monday when the suspect bumped into a 31-year-old woman walking on Liberty Avenue in South Richmond Hill. Police say the suspect reached into her front pocket and pulled out the black iPhone 4 phone. The victim later remembered she downloaded a security application called iGotYa, which takes a photo whenever someone enters the wrong passcode on the locked screen. The suspect's photo was emailed to the woman

    With the passing of Steve Jobs, the question facing Apple is whether it can come up with "one more thing" to wow consumers without its iconic leader. Jobs, co-founder and chairman of Apple (AAPL), was known to introduce big surprises at the end of media events by announcing that he had "one more thing" to show the crowd. As CEO of Apple, he introduced such ground-breaking products as the iMac personal computer, the iPod music player, the iPhone smartphone and the iPad media tablet. In his early days with the company, he led the PC revolution with the Apple II...

    Samsung Electronics said it will file patent-infringement claims in France and Italy to ban the sale of Apple's new iPhone less than a day after it was unveiled, intensifying a legal battle between the two top brands. It will also file legal cases in other countries to stop the sale of the iPhone 4S after further review, the South Korean maker of Galaxy smartphones and tablets said in a statement

    The New York Times have just pissed its neuroscientific pants in public and is now running round the streets announcing the fact in an op-ed that could as easily been titled 'Smell my wee!' The piece is written by Martin Lindström, famous for writing the 'neuromarketing' best-seller Buyology, but infamous for not making any of his data or studies public. In fact, despite constantly mentioning the astounding conclusions from numerous brain imaging studies he was run, not one has appeared in the scientific literature. But even without knowing about the reliability data or the quality of the analysis, it's easy...

    The official announcement for the October 4th iPhone event has been sent out to the media in the form of a 'Let's Talk iPhone' invitation. Wall Street has not yet caught on to the fact that this iPhone upgrade is an absolute game-changer. Consensus opinion remains severely off track with the expectation that this new phone will have a better camera, be a little faster, and look the same as the iPhone 4. The truth is that this iPhone 5 upgrade is the most significant upgrade to the Apple ecosystem since the initial launch of the product back in 2007....

    Washington Post ^ | September 13 | Hayley Tsukayama
    Martin Fitcher, head of HTC’s U.S. operations, said Monday that he thinks the iPhone is losing its cachet among the younger generation. At least, that’s what he hears from his daughter’s classmates at Reed College in Portland, Ore. “I talked to a few of the kids on her floor,” Fitcher told a crowd at the Mobile Future Forward conference in downtown Seattle, GeekWire reported. “And none of them has an iPhone because they told me: ‘My dad has an iPhone.’ There’s an interesting thing that’s going on in the market. The iPhone becomes a little less cool than it was.”...

    Apple's team searched the home, car and computer files, while police waited outside, the reports say. The investigators reportedly told the man that they had traced the phone's GPS signal to his house. When asked, he said he had been at the same bar where the phone was reportedly lost but that he didn't have it, the report says. One of the investigators, who identified himself as Tony, gave the man living in the house a phone number and told him to call with any information about the lost phone, the report says. When the SF Weekly reporter called, a...

    Attn freepers with iphones...I'd like to know something about iphone apps. When you purchase an iphone app, and install it on your iphone, do you get the entire software package installed on your iphone hardware? or is a portion of it on a server somewhere and thus you need a connection to a service provider for the app to function? I want to know if an iphone app will function if I am wandering around on foot in a remote location where there is no wifi and no cell towers whatsoever. zero. nada. thanks

    In a bizarre repeat of a high-profile incident last year, an Apple employee once again appears to have lost an unreleased iPhone in a bar, CNET has learned. The errant iPhone, which went missing in San Francisco's Mission district in late July, sparked a scramble by Apple security to recover the device over the next few days, according to a source familiar with the investigation. Last year, an iPhone 4 prototype was bought by a gadget blog that paid $5,000 in cash. This year's lost phone seems to have taken a more mundane path: it was taken from a Mexican...

    An “Obama Clock” app is jockeying for position with National Geographic’s World Atlas atop the iTunes app store’s reference best-seller list, partly because conservatives are eager to monitor President Barack Obama’s skidding approval numbers and shrinking calendar, says the app’s designer. Liberals don’t like the app because it shows Obama’s numbers trending down, said Jeremy Ross, even though his app just publishes publicly available data. The app can also be used to display the same stats on future GOP presidents. Ross, a California aerospace engineer, cut his sleep time down to 5 hours per day to develop the app, which...

    On the one hand, the tech industry is awash in patent trolls, companies that own generally spurious patents for technologies they didn't really invent, which exist solely to sue other companies into licensing said technologies. On the other, we have tech companies that have patents for technologies that they did, in fact, invent (or at least purchase legitimately) and, as important, use in actual products. These companies, too, must sue others to protect their patents, but for far more legitimate reasons. Google is upset about the latter kind of company, and it's citing two heavy-hitters, Apple and Microsoft, as example...

    Apple (AAPL) rocked the Street after the bell on Tuesday with fiscal third-quarter earnings and revenue that blew expectations out of the water, though the company issued a conservative forecast for the fiscal fourth-quarter. The shares were soaring in after-hours trading. The Cupertino, Calif.-based company posted third-quarter net profit of $7.31 billion, or $7.79 per share, more than doubling the company’s year-ago earnings of $3.25 billion, or $3.51 per share. Revenue rose to $28.57 billion, compared with year-ago sales of $15.70 billion. The Street had high expectations for Apple’s results, which the company easily topped; analysts were looking for earnings...
