Apple’s got one nifty invitation…

It finally happened. This morning, Apple sent out invitations for a much anticipated event. The topic of discussion is the iPhone. Don’t believe me? Check out the invitation above!

Where’s iOS 4.2.2?

As most of us look to iOS 5 as the next generation of iOS, I’ve seen a glaring hole for owners of the iPhone 3G and 2nd generation iPod touch. If you’re currently rocking one of these older devices, I have bad news – you won’t be able to use Apple’s free iCloud service. And after next year, you won’t even be able to use MobileMe. So what’s going to…

Apple’s marketing to children will keep them around for a while

Apple’s marketing department is made of a bunch of geniuses. Literally. Not only are their commercials dramatic and entertaining, they also show that almost anyone can use one of their devices. Case-in-point, the recently released iPad ad showed a toddler using an iOS device to learn her letters, followed by an adult learning how to play chess on the…

The Brazilian Minister of Technology and Science spilled the beans a while back that Apple was looking at Brazil as a possible manufacturing center. Now the Minister is saying that the factory is ready and is producing iPads that will be sold in December.

iPhone 4: Is now a good time to buy?

It’s the question most of you have. Is right now a good time to buy an iPhone? Well, as it stands right now, the iPhone 4 is still one of the most advanced phones on the market, even if it is under-powered compared to the competitors. It runs fast, will run iOS 5 like a champ and can easily be around for another two or three years. The powerful A4 chip…
