Apple warns of overheating iPhones

Posted in iPhone,News by Darrin Olson on July 3rd, 2009

Apple iPhone 3GS overheat warningAmidst rumors of overheating iPhones since shortly after the iPhone 3GS was launched, Apple has finally released the first acknowledgment that there might really be an issue with the iPhone regarding excessive temperatures. Various sites on the internet have posted reports of problems with the iPhone due to excessive heat such as shortened battery life, shut downs and even discoloration of the device itself. Now Apple has officially issued a warning about operating and storing the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS in places with too much heat.

Apple suggests to only operate the iPhone 3G and 3GS in temperatures between 32º to 95º F (0º and 35º C) and to only store the device between temps of -4º to 113º F (-20º and 45º C). Using or storing the iPhone in temperatures beyond this range can cause the device to stop charging (which could explain a shortened battery life), a dimmer display or a weak signal.

Apple prepping less costly MacBook Air with 3G?

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on May 27th, 2009

Apple prepping less costly MacBook Air with 3G?This rumor, if true, may be a sign that Apple wants to compete with netbooks or that in this economy, they don’t think that consumers will continue to pay a premium for the Apple name in the longterm. Either way, Apple may push the cost of the MacBook Air down while extending its feature set. Unnamed sources for SiliconRumors claim that an entry-level model will push the price down to between $1,300 and $1,500, or at least $300 less than the current model. Whether this would be a smaller model or just a price cut isn’t clear.

The same tips say that Apple will add at least an option for built-in 3G for wide-area wireless and may make solid-state drives standard on all models instead of a high-end option. GPS to locate the Mac is an option but “less likely.”

Future iPods rumored to get cameras like the iPhone

Posted in iPod by Conner Flynn on May 17th, 2009

4th Gen 8GB iPod NanoAccording to a new report, Apple may be planning to add camera functionality to a couple of its next-generation iPod models. The report also claims that upcoming iPhones will retain the handsets’ existing size and form factor.

Hardmac, the English-language version of France’s MacBidouille, cites that Apple’s new line of iPod touch and iPod nano players, when launched in September of this year, will have video recording capabilities. While a compact iPod nano with a built-in camera seems foolish, we try to keep an open mind around here.

Apple to get 15-inch OLED display from LG?

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on April 22nd, 2009

MacBook Air now $500 cheaperWord on the street is that Apple is set to get one of the largest practical OLED displays as early as this summer. Reportedly, a senior executive from LG Display says that Apple will use a newly-developed 15-inch screen for a “brand new” notebook that’s due in June and will be one of the first companies anywhere to use the screen.

Specs as well as a notebook line name were not mentioned. The rumor is from Australia’s Smarthouse which cited a senior LG executive from LG Display as the source. The system is likely to be expensive, since the panel will be 2 to 3 times as costly to make as an equivalent LCD.

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on April 22nd, 2009

Apple teams up with Adobe for iPhone FlashThe economy may be in the crapper, but Apple hasn’t really noticed. They just keep on keeping on, selling iPods, iPhones and Macs to a hungry public. Apple just reported a $1.21b profit on revenues of $8.16b, making it another record quarter.

This when Mac sales fell three percent compared to last year. Luckily for them it was offset by a three percent increase in iPod sales (mostly the iPod touch), while iPhone sales jumped 123-percent.


LG confirms Apple’s new OLED notebook

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on March 19th, 2009

LG confirms Apple's new OLED notebook, iPhone and moreAdd this one to the rumor mill. The Korean manufacturing giant somehow has info on Apple’s netbook and they know it’s an OLED touchscreen. How do they know this? Because they possess the technology that prevents smudges and stains on an OLED screen and Apple wants it.

Apple already has a working prototype of this netbook and are about to manufacture it using LG’s screen. The Apple netbook won’t probably be a tablet like in the photo above.

Is the Apple Netbook actually an Ebook?

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on March 11th, 2009

Rumored Apple Netbook rumored to have a 10" screenRumors continue to swirl around whatever(if anything) Apple is building. Reports are that Apple has ordered 10-inch touchscreens from Taiwan. That part is looking more like fact. So the question is, will those screens end up in a netbook?

Andy Ihnatko of the Chicago Sun-Times has a slightly different and interesting theory about the device. He thinks it might be an ebook. Which makes more sense as the only real competitor they would have is Amazon.

Apple building a “Netbook”, is it the iPod Touch HD?

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on March 9th, 2009

Apple building a "Netbook", is it the iPod Touch HD?Word on the street is that Apple is building a netbook and that the device is being called the “iPod Touch HD”. According to these latest rumors, the device is a lot like the iPod Touch, except with a much larger screen.

If you can believe the hype, the new device is expected to start shipping in the third quarter of this year. It isn’t a complete surprise if true. Netbooks are uber popular and so it would make sense for Apple to get in on the action.

Apple plans premium game section of App Store

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on January 30th, 2009

Apple plans premium game section of App StoreLooks like Apple has plans to make even more money from games by introducing premium games in the App Store. The titles will retail for around $19.99 if they meet a new set of quality requirements. It will be interesting to see what kinds of titles will be released.

Certain genres will work better than others on the iPhone/iPod touch’s interface. Apparently the initiative will be open only to a restricted number of commercial game publishers, shutting out smaller developers that have helped the App Store grow from the beginning.

SEC to investigate Apple over Jobs’ health?

Posted in Apple by Shane McGlaun on January 22nd, 2009

Apple LogoTo many it seemed odd when rumors of the ailing health of Steve Jobs first started to circulate only to be flatly denied by Apple. With Jobs so integral to the company and the Apple brand, the mere rumor of a health problem for Jobs is enough to make investors and consumer nervous.

It wasn’t long ago that Apple finally had to admit that Jobs had a health issue that was severe enough that he had to step down for an undisclosed period as CEO of Apple. Now rumors are coming in that the SEC may be investigating Apple for possible legal infractions for not disclosing Jobs’ health.

Apple working on a 15-inch MacBook Air?

Posted in MacBook by Conner Flynn on January 18th, 2009

Apple working on a 15-inch MacBook Air?Another week, another rumor. Chinese site Apple.pro is saying there’s a 15-inch MacBook Air in the works. We can’t dismiss this one outright because a 15 inch MacBook Air would be an interesting compromise between portability and screen, so color us intrigued.

It’s very possible, but we are taking it with the usual grain of salt, even though Apple.pro was dead on about the leaked unibody MacBook pictures. As usual, I guess we will find out in time. Are any of you interested in a MacBook that’s thin and light with a big screen? I’m sure you are.

Here we go again: iPhone nano now rumored for June

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on January 13th, 2009

Here we go again: iPhone nano now rumored for JuneMacworld just ended and already we have more iPhone Nano rumors. The Chinese trade paper Economic Daily News is now reporting that Taiwan Semiconductor Company (TSMC) will be handling chip manufacturing for a low-cost device being referred to as…cue music…The iPhone nano. The paper has a pretty good reputation, but take it with an iPhone sized grain of salt.

The source is citing a June launch of the handset, just after an order for the components in March. Apple does like to intro iPhones in the Summer, so if history is any indication, the timing fits. China has no deal for the iPhone, so a lower-cost version may be perfect for Asian markets. The nano could have a bunch of ready users.
