Apple has responded to concerns spreading across internet blogs regarding the health of Steve Jobs after photos taken Monday at the WWDC conference in San Francisco show him looking a little more frail than usual.
Specifically, the Wall Street Journal points to a headline on the Drudge Report that read "Concern over Apple Steve Jobs’s physical appearance…,” which linked to photos of the chief executive without further comment.
The new iPhone and the way it will be sold look set to shut down a small industry that arose to make the first version of the iconic phone available around the world.
The original iPhone, which launched in June last year, was initially available only in the U.S. and only for use on AT&T Inc.'s network. In little more than a month, however, enterprising hackers found a way to "unlock" the phone to make it usable on other networks, including networks in other countries.
Apple has released a new version of QuickTime to fix five security issues that could allow hackers to take control of a system via malicious movie or image files.
The QuickTime 7.5 update comes roughly two months after Apple released Version 7.45 to plug 11 security holes in the application. This time around, the update addresses a series of buffer overflows, URL-handling flaws and memory corruption issues affecting Mac OS X and Windows XP and Vista users.
The iPhone 3G will be available in more than 70 countries.
Apple on Monday offered a preview of "Snow Leopard," the next major version of its Mac OS X operating system.
Snow Leopard, which presumably will be designated Mac OS X 10.6 when released in about a year, will focus more on speed and stability than new features. It will be optimized for multicore processors and will be designed to facilitate future Mac platform innovation.
