Pocket-lint claims that a source has told them the white iPhone 4 will be launching in the UK in “late March”. That’s in the UK which is sometimes a little behind the US. We’ll see.
You already knew all that but it feels a lot better when it comes from Woz’s mouth. That Nuance thing was an aberration. Also the Android stuff. He’s legit. Feel better? http://www.viddler.com/simple/36dc642e/
It had to happen — Intel introduced its Sandy Bridge processor this week and already intrepid Mac OS X hackers have managed to install Apple’s operating system on Intel’s new chip.
Apple generates more column inches of coverage than any other firm on the planet. Love or loathe, millions worldwide are fascinated by what happens in Cupertino — and that’s probably why the company is now one of the biggest in the world dominating the smartphone and tablet industries. What follows are some of the most […]
—>?? So the reports of a 1.8 inch screen Nano continue this week. If you can imagine how small a 1.8 inch screen, measured diagonally, device is, you’ll note that it is pretty much the same size as a modern wristwatch. Apple, known for its ultra thin and light products, isn’t going to have a […]
Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak, has stepped up to the plate and has voiced his concerns about the iPhone 4 antenna issue in an interview with a Dutch journalist.
Here’s the part from the interview that you’ll probably want to read/care about:
Henk van Ess (Journalist): How did you find out about the antenna problems?
Steve Wozniak: The first time I tried I was able to duplicate the problem. My wife was driving me to the airport and as soon as I got a short distance from my home, and no longer on wifi, I tried it by accessing a web page (using Safari on my iPhone 4) and observing the progress bar.
Following yesterday’s news about the Apple employee being fired over showing Woz the iPad 3G, we looked more into the ordeal and have discovered who the Apple employee actually was. The night of the incident at the Valley Fair Apple Store, a video showing an Apple employee showing of the 3G iPad to Woz and others hit the interwebs.
Up until now nobody saw the face of the employee but 9to5mac managed to secure a video shot from a different angle (thanks SolTran!). This angle clearly shows who the employee is (He’s the one saying “I work for Apple”), and you can clearly see he is holding an iPad 3G due to the black bar at the top. We’ve done some snooping around on Linkedin and determined the recently terminated engineer is AJ…nevermind.
Just like Woz, we truly feel horrible for AJ and wish him the best of luck in the future. It seems he has already landed a new job with Roxio doing Quality Assurance, which is fantastic. A blown up shot of the iPad 3G below from that fateful night below…
For those who missed this entertaining clip when it first came into the light on January 1, here’s a short interview with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, ‘Woz’.
Apple is at once the world’s most secretive company while also being the one which generates more column inches than any other firm on the planet. Millions of people worldwide are fascinated by what happens in Cupertino, even if they don’t use the disruptive products invented there.
What follows are six of the most essential titles any Apple watcher should read and own if they really want to build up their understanding of the company.
We’ve been watching Apple at work and play for a long, long time. We consider these to be the key titles to help boost understanding of the history and philosophy of the company.
We know that Mac website editors across the planet have a few books forever in the shelf behind their desk, and we figured it would be of some interest if told you which books they are.
So, whether it’s to satisfy your own curiousity, or for a Christmas or birthday present for an Apple fan, we think you really can’t go wrong with any one or all of these titles. Read on…

Here’s Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak’s ad for clothes and clobber from ScotteVest…(thanks to..).
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is in the frame, once again urging the engineers of tomorrow to "follow their passion".
Woz took part in an on-stage interview at this week’s Intel Developer Forum (IDF), speaking with Dr. Moira Gunn.
He took the chance to reveal a few more bits and pieces surrounding his life and work, but stressed that holding passion for what you do will always be so much more important than money.
We were Inspired by Steve Wozniak’s comment the other day on Apple’s stance on SIM Locking vs. DRM locking. We decided to do something about it. What if we took Apple’s position on DRM for music and applied it to the SIM locking of the iPhone? Does Apple stand up to its own scrutiny on the locking in of content and services? For this experiment we did the following:
- We took Steve Jobs Open Letter to the Music industry
- Copied it verbatim
- Did a Text Edit – Find/Replace on it using the following:
cd -> Home Wifi
iPod -> iPhone
music -> wireless data
iTunes -> AT&T
MP3 -> GSM
AAC -> EDGE
leak -> hack
DRM -> SIM lock
copied -> used
song -> phone
- Then we cleaned it up and removed iTunes specific data.
Below you will find the results of this experiment. Notice how just exchanging a few words turns everything around on Apple.
Laptop Mag got a pretty solid interview out of Apple Co-founder Steve Wozniak. It is pretty entertaining overall but pay particular attention to the money quote:
L: Is there anything you would change about the iPhone?
SW: I think it could be more like a computer. It should be open like a computer. Anyone should be able to develop their own games and programs on it. And keep the phone and the phone services off guard so it’s protected.
L: So you’re in favor of the unlocking and jailbreaking for third-party applications?
SW: From a business point of view, Apple owns what they have done. They have a right to lock it. But I am really for the unlockers, the rebels trying to make it free. I’d really like it to be open to new applications. I’d like to install some nice games. Why in the world can I not install a ringtone that I’ve made? How would that hurt AT&T’s network? Here is Steve Jobs sending letters to the record companies saying [they] should provide music that’s unprotected, but here he is taking the opposite approach with the iPhone. I don’t know to what extent AT&T is involved in the thinking and direction.
