Pentalobe Screwdriver: See Apple's New Low-Tech Tool in Action [VIDEO]

Apple Computer may not have re-invented the wheel, but when it comes to screwdrivers, they're thinking different. After moving quite a few units of the new iPhone 4, Apple customers started noticing that the screws that hold the latest version of the smartphone together are not the ordinary Phillips head variety. Meet the tamper-proof, pentalobe screw. As the name suggests, pentalobe screws consist of five rounded (lobe-like, in other words) grooves that form the shape of a tiny flower when looked at from above. Attempts to open up an iPhone 4 with a flat-head or Phillips-head screwdriver...

The Verizon iPhone Is Coming! 5 Takes on the Highly Anticipated Gadget

Looks like the wait is over. Verizon and Apple will finally put an end to one of the consumer tech industry's biggest questions when the two companies reveal the iPhone's introduction to the Verizon network. The announcement is taking place today at what had been a mysterious engagement until The Wall Street Journal confirmed suspicions that the New York event would bring the iPhone to Verizon. Today's announcement is already heating up competition between Verizon and AT&T, with AT&T PR executive Larry Solomon telling Business Insider, "I'm not sure iPhone users are ready for life in the...

Is Sony Too Late with PlayStation Phone?

(Oct. 27) -- Sony's latest innovation may be just in time for Christmas, but a bit too late for relevance. Photographs of the heavily rumored PlayStation phone leaked by Engadget have the tech blogs buzzing over whether the prototype is real or fake, and whether a PlayStation phone is even viable in today's mobile gaming market. Sony has been flaky on confirming the report's legitimacy, first labeling the images as fake before reverting to a "no comment" statement. Speculative tech specs include the Android 3.0 operating system, a custom Sony Marketplace function for users to download games...

Verizon iPhone Confirmed by Wall Street Journal: Instant Reactions

(Oct. 6) -- The bell has tolled. Apple Inc. intends to mass-produce a new iPhone model in the coming months that will allow Verizon Wireless to sell the smart phone by early 2011, according to The Wall Street Journal. Apple has held an exclusive deal with AT&T since introducing the iPhone in 2007. Did someone say "Veriphone?" According to the report: "The new iPhone would be similar in design to the iPhone 4 currently sold by AT&T Inc. but would be based on an alternative wireless technology called CDMA used by Verizon, these people said. The phone, for which Qualcomm Inc. is providing a...

IPhone iOS 4 Can't Stave Off Possible Touch Screen Shortage

Even if you don't own an iPhone or an iPod Touch, you may have heard the news that Apple made its shiny new operating system available via free download today. Departing from Apple's previous nomenclature, "iPhone OS," the new "iOS 4" has mostly been warmly received by the nation's tech writers, as well as positively gobbled up by average users who have long pinned for the multitasking and camera-zoom features that come standard on some of Apple's stiffest competition (Google Android lovers, here's your cue). But could the release of iOS 4 actually be a stalling tactic by Apple to stave...

(June 6) -- As Apple's (AAPL) large and lofty Worldwide Developers Conference heads toward its Monday morning keynote speech with CEO Steve Jobs, much of the attention has focused on expectations of unveiling a fourth-generation iPhone. But Locavore iPhone applications developer Buster Benson has his fingers crossed that such an announcement would also include a radio frequency identification (RFID) chip in a next-generation iPhone, or any iPhone for that matter....

iPhone 4G: Should You Upgrade?

As Apple readies its new 4G version of America's most popular cell phone, owners of older models will soon face a tough choice: To upgrade or not? As Apple recently announced on its website, iPhone OS 4.0 software will ship this summer, and it won't work on all old models of the phone. For instance, if you want to take advantage of multi-tasking, you'd better have an iPhone 3GS, otherwise you're out of luck. In other words, if you want all the latest software bells and whistles, you're going to want to upgrade to the new iPhone 4G hardware. On Monday, Steve Jobs is expected to unveil the...
