Apple to Sell 10 Billion Apps; Will Sprint iPhone Add to Gold Rush?

Someone might want to tell Apple that it's not polite to gloat. The tech giant added a live counter to its website this week, so that customers could revel in the moment that the company sells its 10 billionth app. Given the rate at which the numbers are currently whizzing by, that milestone appears to be imminent. Apple says it plans to give away a $10,000 iTunes gift card to the person who actually purchases the 10 billionth app, Mashable reported. Serving as the conduit for third-party applications and the Apple devices (iPad, iPod and iPhone) that run them, Apple tapped into a what has...

iPhone iOS 4.1 Daylight Savings Glitch Plagues Users

(Nov. 1) -- Wake up...or not. In the United States and Canada, daylight savings ends on Nov. 7, requiring Americans to set clocks back one hour. Due to a software glitch, however, many iPhone users may experience a rude awakening when their alarms go off an hour early or an hour late. The iOS 4.1 software glitch first became apparent in Australia and New Zealand, where daylight savings ended on Oct. 3. and people who used their phones as alarm clocks discovered the gadgets going off an hour before the time they'd been set for, MacRumors reported.

Anna Chapman Develops Her Brand With iPhone App

(Oct. 20) -- If you want a lesson in personal brand management in the early 21st century, look no further than former Russian spy Anna Chapman (and really, why would you want to look any further anyway). She's readily becoming the Rachael Ray of the "come-hither-look" industry. Today's Chapman news includes the revelation that she is now an iPhone application, in addition to being a Maxim Russia cover girl, Heat magazine model, space launch attendee, Russian laureate and banking consultant. "Poker With Anna Chapman" was launched earlier this month by Illinois-based company Zeda. (Still no...

Steve Jobs Rips Google Android Hard on Earnings Call [AUDIO]

(Oct. 18) -- It's on. Further signaling the growing battle between Apple Inc. and Google Inc. for supremacy in Silicon Valley, Apple CEO Steve Jobs made a surprise appearance on his company's third-quarter earnings call on Monday. But Jobs didn't simply drop by to bask in the glory of what he described as Apple's "first $20 billion quarter." Instead he went right after Google and its Android phone platform. Before opening the call up to questions, Jobs launched into a blistering critique of how Google is structuring its business model, calling Android "fragmented" and "a mess," and mocking...

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...

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...
