If the schools that my kids attend are anything to go by, it seems that high on Santa's list this Xmas just gone was an iTouch, iPhone or iPad depending how well off the parents were. That's understandable, they are just as attractive as gadgets for kids as they are to adults. But along with the never ending supply of free games, educational apps and the like comes the small problem of unfettered access to the Internet and all that brings with it. While adults may well have the family PC protected by parental control software to filter unsuitable content …

Now if you had invested in an Apple iPod Touch and it, well, exploded after you dropped it you probably would not be too happy about. You probably would contact Apple and explain what had happened, and you might be happy to accept a refund. But what if that refund came tied to a signed settlement agreement which legally bound you not to mention what had happened to anyone? That's what one unhappy chap is claiming happened after the iTouch he bought for his 11 year old daughter went up in flames. Apparently he dropped it, it then started hissing …

The iPhone is many different things to many different people. I have heard some refer to it as their cellphone, while others describe it as a smartphone, a pocket computer and even the Jesus Phone. One thing I have not heard people call it is a weapon though. Until now that is. According to a [URL="http://www.newsweek.com/id/194623"]Newsweek report[/URL] the iPhone could be the "future of networked warfare." Although that report actually mentions just the iTouch by name, the software being developed by the US Department of Defense will run perfectly well on an iPhone because the two are, essentially, one and …

There’s a light trading load on Wall Street this week, with trader’s thoughts turning to visions of sugarplum martinis dancing in their heads. Anything to help forget 2008, right? Although 2009 looks like it won’t be any better. This, from Subir Gokarn, chief economist at Standard & Poor’s, Asia Pacific. “The U.S. won’t recover from a recession until 2010,” he says. Gokarn says it won’t be like the last few recessions, when the U.S. could climb out of a financial hole by itself. This time, he says, China and India will help lead the way. Other than tomorrow’s Q3 GDP …

Apple today had one of 'those' events in San Francisco. At 10am PDT, under the banner of Let's Rock, Steve Jobs made a number of important product announcements. These included a brand new version of iTunes in the shape of iTunes 8. This comes with support for HD television programmes, a 'Genius' playlist function which recommends songs based on what you listen to and what you own, and a new flat album view. A new iPod Nano, the Nano 4G, becomes the thinnest iPod ever. It can do the Genius thing all on its own without needing to be connected …

It has not been a good day for Apple. Actually, let me rephrase that - it has not been a good day for Apple customers. Here in the UK supplies of the Jesus Phone, the all new iPhone 3G, were scarce to say the least. Those people who did brave the early morning queues and get their hands on a handset were soon finding themselves coming down from the temporary high as they tried to activate the devices. The same problem has apparently been hitting iPhone 3G users the world over. Indeed, in the US an [URL="http://www.mobile-weblog.com/50226711/iphone_launch_doesnt_go_according_to_plan.php"]AT&T spokesman admitted[/URL] there …

This is rather belated news, but I figured it was worth posting anyways. Apple has recently unveiled larger capacity versions of the iTouch and iPhone. The iTouch, originally only available in 8 gig and 16 gig versions, now boasts a whopping 32 gig version with a $500 pricetag. The iPhone began with 4 gig and 8 gig versions. Then they ditched the 4 gig model quicker than you could blink, lowered the pricetag, and released the 8 gig and 16 gig iTouch. Now they're following suit with a 16 gig iPhone with the same pricetag of the new 32 gig …
