Apple is sexy. The past decade has seen Apple create a big bang with its iPods, while the Mac has been transformed from a niche product for artists into a serious tool for business professionals.
And there's no sign the company is cooling down. The recent introduction of the iPhone, and a new generation of iPods, seems likely to keep Apple in the lead for innovation for a while to come.
An unlocked iPhone is a joy to behold, filled with third party apps – something the hackers haven’t yet achieved with the newly released iPod Touch, despite a promising moment that soon saw hopes dashed, while yet another iPod teething problem has reared its ugly head.
It seems no matter what Apple releases these days, something always seems to go wrong. When the original iPod nano was released, the screen was easy to scratch, but even before that, problems with battery life plagued some early models.
Finally, you can unlock your iPhone from AT&T's network using easily available online tools, without having to do any work on the hardware, for free (free as in no money, nada, zip).
Apple Inc’s Steve Jobs led a revival that saved the computer maker, and survived a stock-options scandal. He also may recover from a surprise price cut last week that alienated customers and spooked investors.
Apple shares fell 8.6 %, losing almost $11 billion in market value in three days, after chief executive officer Jobs said on September 5 Apple was slashing the price of the most expensive iPhone by a third.
One of the very first questions that popped into my head after hearing, during the liveblog last week, that the iPod Touch had wireless capability was how soon the hackers would get wifi VOIP running on it. Michael over at the Apple Gazette had the same thought, and he's even got a plan on how to do it-- if the iPhone's mic-enabled headphones work in the iPod Touch, we're golden.
