Censorship Goes Both Ways: The Case for an Ex-Gay App

Perhaps you've heard of this Exodus International iPhone app fracas? The leading organization behind the ex-gay movement (the belief that religious counseling can help LGBT people "struggling" with their sexualities to reorient themselves to heterosexuality) recently had its official app approved by Apple, and gay rights groups are now in an uproar. Surprise? Despite the fact that Apple deemed...

All-In-One Gadget Stand for Apple Fanboys (and Girls)

Sorry, Apple fanatics -- it's just a prototype. But if Andrew Kim is as clever as this all-in-one iPad/iPhone/iPod stand suggests, you should be able to get your iLoving hands on it soon enough. The plastic on plywood PolyPly lets you snap your devices into place, and even leaves room to connect their cords. It's beautiful in its simplicity and matches Apple's minimal designs without just...

Report: Microsoft More Ethical Than Google, Facebook or Apple

Microsoft may not be worth as much money as Apple, but according to a new think-tank report, it's way more ethically sound. This year, the corporation earned a spot on Ethisphere's list of the 'World's Most Ethical Companies,' beating out Apple, Facebook, and Google. It's certainly a far cry from the late '90s, when Microsoft faced antitrust trials and accusations of corporate tyranny. But the...

New York Times Digital Subscription Plans Cuts Apple In on the Action

After over a year of planning, the New York Times has finally unveiled its new paywall system, and one of the major beneficiaries may wind up being Apple. In addition to selling website subscriptions directly to readers, the Times will offer plans through the Apple App Store. That means that, in compliance with Apple's new subscription policy, the paper will hand over 30-percent of the revenue...

Apple's Phil Schiller: White iPhone 4 Will Drop This Spring

Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide product marketing, tweeted yesterday that the white iPhone 4 will finally be available this spring. Schiller didn't reveal any specific details about the mythical phone, like whether it'll be available on both Verizon and AT&T, or its exact release date. But with summer a likely target launch date for the iPhone 5, we'd bet on seeing...

Apple Sells 1 Million iPads During Debut Weekend, Completing 1 Million Lives

Big news, you guys: Apple sold a lot of iPad 2s over the weekend. How many? Nearly a million. Granted, another big opening weekend may seem about as newsworthy as a sunrise, but take a second to chew on this: most analysts expected Apple to move only about 350,000 to 400,000 tablets. Instead, the company ended up selling about three times as many as it did last April, when it unveiled the first...

The iPhone Still Can't Handle Daylight Savings Time

Over the weekend, as the rest of the country leaped forward to daylight savings time, many iPhone users were once again stuck in the past. Though some devices adjusted to the time difference with seamless elegance, plenty of other users reported glitches with their iPhone clocks. Some simply failed to advance, while others actually fell backward by an hour, putting their owners a full two hours...

Dev Scores Cheap Publicity by Shelling Out $900 to Skip iPad 2 Line

We know the Mac faithful can be a little fanatical. But even we were a little shocked by Hazem Sayed, a 53-year-old developer who paid his way to the front of the line at the Apple store on 5th Avenue here in NYC. Sayed strolled up to the front of the line and paid a 20-year-old college student $900 (more than the cost of a top-of-the-line iPad) to give him his spot. That means, depending on...

Why You Should Think Twice About Buying an iPad 2

Today the iPad 2 goes on sale and, as with most iDevices, there will be a gaggle of geeks lined up outside your local Apple store to snatch it up. It's only a small evolutionary update to the original iPad, but there's no denying its intrigue. Yet even after reading all of the glowing reviews, I'm still not sold. There's no doubt that the iPad 2 is going to sell like hotcakes, but I won't be...

Apple to Open (Gratuitous) Pop-Up Megastore at SXSW

In what must be one of the most gratuitous moves ever made, Apple will open a 5,000-square-foot store smack-dab in downtown Austin, built to last only slightly longer than the duration of the South by Southwest Interactive Conference. What could Apple possibly sell to the SXSW crowd that they don't already own? Why, official Steve Jobs tattoos, of course. Well, that or iPad 2s. But we bet Apple...

iPad 2 Reviews Are In: Long Live the King

The first batch of iPad 2 reviews have landed. Predictably, most reviewers can't speak more highly of the latest Apple tablet. Then again, as Laptop Magazine's Mark Spoonauer points out, "Apple didn't need to do a lot to stay in the tablet lead." This isn't Apple playing catch-up or exploding into a new market; this the Cupertino crew simply treading water. And, if the reviews are to be...

iOS 4.3 Is Here: Personal Hotspot and App Store Improvements in Tow

iOS 4.3 has arrived, and with it a number of improvements to Apple's mobile OS. The biggest news is that the App Store will now recognize if you've previously purchased an app, and now iPhone 4s have access to the Personal Hotspot feature. Along with a bunch of bug fixes, Safari has also gotten a nice speed boost and you can finally reclaim the orientation lock button on the iPad. Fire up iTunes...

Your Guide to Private Browsing

InPrivate, Incognito, Private Browsing -- whatever they want to brand it -- all modern browsers offer a special mode designed to keep what you do online a secret from prying eyes. Despite different names and origins at different companies, they all work in basically similar ways: A new browser session is created that operates separately from your existing one, with its own history and cookies...

Sorry, John McCain -- iPads Aren't Built in the Good Ol' USA

Sen. John McCain made a bit of a boo boo the other day on ABC's 'This Week.' Remarking on recent comments made by President Obama that America needs to increase its exports, McCain cited Apple as a good example American manufacturing. "[If] you emptied that house there... if you left a computer there, or an iPad, or an iPhone, those are built in the United States of America," he told host...

Samsung Thinks Its Galaxy Tab Is 'Inadequate' Next to iPad 2

Since your writer is an Apple fangirl, there is nothing she enjoys more than a bit of corporate schadenfreude whenever tech manufacturers grit their collective teeth at Apple's latest release of yet another much-hyped device. Poor Samsung, the maker of the Android-based Galaxy Tab, has decided to reconsider its tablet's pricing, and, according to Executive VP Lee Don-Joo, "improve the parts that...
