Computer users are suffering from a rainbow of problems. Beyond the well-known "blue screen of death" that's long afflicted Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) Windows, reports emerged earlier this week that Vista has a tendency to display a purple variant.
Now, Apple Leopard users say their systems have taken to randomly flashing the color green.
A poster to Apple's support forum named "Matthew Hickey1" recently reported that his Leopard-based PowerBook displays the green flashes whenever he tries to close applications. "No, I haven't been drinking or taking drugs," he emphasized.
Singapore retailers have pulled illegally tampered iPhones off their shelves after Apple Inc threatened to sue, The Straits Times cited shop owners as saying.
Apple sent warning e-mails about a month ago to retailers selling "unlocked" iPhones, which are hacked so they can be used with service providers other than those that Apple has partnered, the newspaper reported on Friday.
Marian from the Touch Mods Blog has finally managed to fit a mic + pre-amp and all associated circuitry INTO a dock connector! Amazing. He's quoting USD45 including shipping and handling which is pretty reasonable considering these are HAND MADE! While there isn't a VoIP app ready for testing, it's only a matter of time - wouldn't you want to be one of the first to make a VoIP call from your Touch? I would suggest ordering these now if you really want one - Marian might just decide to stop making them after some time. ;)
After years of relative safety, the Apple Mac is becoming an increasingly tempting target for malicious computer hackers, according to a new report published this week.
Security researchers have been aware of the threat to Apple since last year, when they detected the first piece of malicious code - or "malware" - specifically designed to target Apple.
Over the past few months, however, the number of malicious programmes has increased, according to a report published this week by F-Secure, an internet security company.
t's finally, really, totally, actually going to happen: Apple's ultraportable PC buzz is reaching died-from-the-fever-already pitch.
According to Taiwan's DigiTimes, Apple has placed orders for 13.3" backlit LED display components, and some believe it will be for a new ultraportable MacBook. It's not entirely clear why it couldn't simply be a skinnier MacBook in that standard-issue size.
Dell is also named in the report, but everyone's talking about Apple because Apple is sexy.
