Based on the belief that Apple shouldn’t have the right to approve or disapprove of the apps it sells in the Mac App Store, a group of Russian developers have put together an alternative app store for Mac users, called Hack Store.

A CGI production studio called Transparent House put together this beautiful tribute to Apple that traces the company’s history, from the original Apple I to the first iPad.
Boy oh boy, is Kickstarter becoming the go-to place for the most innovative Apple accessories. A few weeks ago, I told you about the Pebble e-ink watch. Just this week, I reviewed the Cosmonaut stylus. Today, I’m going to tell you about a smart new iPad cover with a keyboard that transforms your iPad into […]
Apple recently received less than favorable news with the US International Trade Commission ruling that Apple is infringing on a patent involving 3G wireless technology that Motorola Mobility owns. The Commission further stated that Apple’s action also compels other companies to infringe on this same patent without even knowing that they’re doing it. This is […]
It’s probably the oddest stylus you’ve ever seen. At first glance, it seems to be a big, black crayon. In reality, the Cosmonaut is the stylus, reborn. Re-imagined from the ground up, it’s an effort to throw out all the rules and create something a whole lot smarter.
Want to see even more of Apple’s super-secretive headquarters? We’ve just added over 35 photos to our gallery of the inside of Apple’s Cupertino, California campus, more than doubling the original count.
Okay, maybe “never” is a strong word. But it’s a rare thing when I write about a rumor (I don’t even consider it unless it’s a sure thing), because 99% of rumors turn out to be bunk. Like that story about Tim Cook visiting Valve Software last week. You know, that completely non-news piece of […]
Apple recently released the official removal tool and a patch that will remove and protect Macbooks from the Flashback malware, it is still installed on many Macs. In a blog post, computer security company Symantec reported that 140,000 Macs are still infected with Flashback. Even though it is a huge drop compared to the 600,000 […]
Hitting the app store this Wednesday (4.18.12) is a clever new app that puts the tools in your hands to create and sell your own iOS games — right from your iPhone or iPad.
Do you consider yourself a diehard Apple fanboy or fangirl? If so, these 12 high quality wallpapers are for you. They’re retina-screen ready for “the new iPad,” aka iPad 3, and each one is guaranteed to show the world just how much you love Apple.
Who says only programmers should be able to make great apps? What if creating iOS apps was as easy as creating a WYSIWYG Word doc? A new Apple patent suggests that very idea — an idea so obvious, so genius, it’s going to change everything.
“Pebble” may be a dumb name, but it’s a killer idea: a smartwatch that connects to your iPhone via Bluetooth, uses an e-ink display for long battery life, and even comes with a free SDK so devs can make their own apps for it.
By now you’ve already heard of the Flashback botnet that has infected thousands of Macs worldwide. Hopefully, you’re not one of the 600,000 Macs that have been infected. Apple is already hard at work trying to make a tool that will finally stop Flashback in its tracks. Protecting yourself from Flashback is as simple as […]
Found on eBay: an ultra-rare Apple t-shirt that just sold a few weeks ago on eBay that you can’t buy in any store. This t-shirt was the standard gift given to new employees at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California.
It seems that nearly everyone has an iPhone these days. Thanks to two-year contracts with service providers, people are able to purchase them for much cheaper than they otherwise would. But buying accessories can be more than the wallet can handle. Just a dock alone can run you $60, if you are lucky. That is […]
