Elusive White iPhone Keeps Techies Buzzing

Any old beatnik can throw on the black and call himself "hip," but white requires a special brand of cool. Think White Album. Think Tom Wolfe. Think iPhone. That last one may require a little patience. The iPhone comes in black, but Apple has been promising a white model since early last summer when it released the iPhone 4. Last fall, bloggers teased Apple fans with photos of snow-white iPhones and indicators that they were ready for order, a rumor Apple quickly squelched. All winter, tech writers have been jabbering about the new color's possible debut. AOL's Engadget noted in February ...

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 ...

Apple Valued at 6 Times the Estimated Worth of Facebook

Move aside, Mark Zuckerberg. Even with faulty iPhone alarms, Steve Jobs looks to be the reigning CEO of market capital. Though Facebook made headlines this morning with its newly projected worth of $50 billion -- thanks to a $500 million investment by Goldman Sachs and Russian investing firm Digital Sky Technologies -- the popular social media platform is nowhere near the value of Apple. This should be no surprise given the exponential success of last year's iPad and iPhone 4. But today Apple shares rose to an astonishing height of $329.75, giving the computer giant an approximate market val...

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. Here is one snafu that an iPhone user posted...
