Apple running low on iPad accessories

Looks like Apple was prepared for the iPad orders, but not the accessories. Items like the keyboard dock and 10W USB power adapter are now being pushed back to ship in May. These products were originally projected to be shipped shortly after the launch date. Even the iPad soft cases were pushed back until mid-April. The soft cases were supposed to be…

Crazy, but (mostly) true iPhone stories

So while reading up on iPhone news this morning, I received a link from a friend about an iPhone orchestra. I thought it was another funny idea he had. To my amazement, five minutes later, his next email sent me to a website called Oddee.com, and it “features the odd, strange and bizarre things of our world.” For this article, it fixed its sights on the…

Rumor: iPhone OS 4.0 to get multitasking

Most of us want it. Badly. And we’ve been waiting for it for years. If there was ever a doubt about it, TiP’s poll on the most-desired features for the next iPhone seems to clinch it: That sexy, elusive multitasking is our most-wanted enhancement. (And it just can’t come soon enough for me. I’m tired of losing my game scores whenever someone…

43, 10k, 152k, $5m, 90% – A lot of numbers, but what do they mean?

I couldn’t help but notice a whole load of numbers when staring at a page full of Apple news links earlier, so I dug around a little and stumbled upon this rather tasty set of figures. I know we all love a few stats, so here they are: $5m: This is the amount that Apple COO Timothy Cook got paid in bonuses for his “outstanding performance” running the…

iPad battery life a sure thing… apparently

I’m not the only one with an iPhone who’s less than impressed with its battery life, and even though being able to swap the battery would be nice, I have always felt that the sexy form factor would have to be sacrificed somewhat if swappable batteries were introduced. So it’s not surprising then that the Cupertino-based company designed the iPad in the same…

10 ways to hide your handset

I just read the news tidbit about the 10,000 Microsoft workers who are secret iPhone users. Crazy stuff. Turns out, many of them feel they have to hide them at the office. Seems like there are lots of reasons to hide an iPhone these days, whether from irate bosses, potential muggers, or even teachers, who forbid them at school. (Don’t worry, I won’t…

Poll: What do you want most in the next iPhone?

We asked, and boy did you answer! Cam’s post “Dear Santa, on the next iPhone I would like…” offered his wish list of features for the next-gen handset. We also asked Today’s iPhone readers for the stuff that their iPhone dreams are made of, and we got a terrific response posted in the comments and via email. Then we compiled all those into the…

10,000 Microsoft workers secretly love the iPhone

Microsoft and Apple may be rivals in several different tech arenas, but this doesn’t seem to phase Redmond’s employees from using the iPhone. A whopping 10,000 iPhone users accessed the Microsoft employee email system last year, according to two anonymous sources who heard the estimates from senior MS executives. That would mean roughly 10 percent of the…
