Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on February 1st, 2011

Just when you thought that they couldn’t get any more restrictive, it looks like Apple is tightening its iron grip in their iTunes App Store. The company has reportedly rejected Sony’s eBook store app – the Sony Reader Store from the iTunes App Store.

10 billionth iTunes app downloader hung up on Apple

Posted in iTunes by Conner Flynn on January 24th, 2011

Last week the App Store hit its 10 billionth download and Apple was to give the person who downloaded the 10 billionth app a $10,000 gift card. The lucky downloader of that 10 billionth app was Gail Davis of Orpington, Kent, UK. She is a very lucky woman.

But when an Apple rep called Davis and started telling her that she had won, she hung up thinking that it was a prank. “I thought it was a prank call. I said, ‘Thank you very much, I’m not interested’ and I hung up.” But her kids told her that it was for real and luckily the Apple rep called back again. That was a close one. Her kids would have never forgiven her.

Rooting a device will allow you to install any app you want on it. It’s a pretty useful trick if you have the know-how. And now the Barnes & Noble NOOKcolor has fallen victim to this. The result is a NOOKcolor that allows you to read Kindle books. How do you like that irony?

Obviously Barnes & Noble is not happy about this. It doesn’t just stop at Amazon’s Kindle app, though. The rooting process in this case also added Gmail, YouTube and some other Android tricks to the NOOKcolor.

Apple is a patent filing monster. Let’s face it, they have a patent for everything. The latest patent app to surface from Apple has the name of many of the members of the iPhone team on it and once the app is approved, it will have the Apple name applied to the final patent.
