Grand Theft Auto: Vice City making its way to the App Store soon

If you spent any of early/late teenage years glued to a TV screen playing PS2, you’ll know of Grand Theft Auto. It’s an incredibly addictive game. My first taste was with the 2D Grand Theft Auto II, then I moved on to III and was hooked. I have to be honest, I spent far too much of my time with the blood and gore cheat on and sniping old people from an…

Tim Cook: Apple doesn’t “worry about cannibalizing” its own products

Whenever Apple launches a new type of product, the potential is clearly there that it might start to remove interest from a pre-existing line. The iPhone made the iPod less popular, the iPad made the laptops/netbooks less popular and the iPad mini has the potential to upset “full size” iPad sales. But, according to Tim Cook, it’s something the company…

Apple’s official apology to Samsung: “UK court says they didn’t copy the iPad, but they totally did!”

Apple and Samsung have been in and out of court more times in the last year than I can count. They have lawsuits against each other in virtually every continent. The case that gained the biggest press was in the US, where the jury decided that Sammy owed Apple somewhere in the region of $1B damages for copying its iOS user interface in TouchWiz. There…

White iPad mini pre-orders sold out already?

Being in the UK, thankfully, I didn’t have to stay up late to wait for the iPad mini pre-orders to go live today. The Apple online store normally re-opens for business at 8am on pre-order days, so I logged in using the Apple Store app for iPhone. Initially I’d planned on buying the white model, however, I saw that shipping times had already slipped to…

Tim Cook slams Surface tablet, Says Customers Will Continue To Want iPads

The surface hasn’t even hit the stores yet, but that hasn’t stopped everyone and their mom’s dog from commenting on it. Although Apple’s higher-ups don’t usually comment on other companies’ products, Tim Cook didn’t hold his tongue when asked about Microsoft’s new Surface tablet on the company’s earnings call. “I haven’t played with a Surface yet,…

Mulling over the iPad mini event [Editorial]

Two days ago, Apple wrapped up their iPad mini keynote. Now that we’ve all had a while to cool down following the event, I thought I’d take the chance to re-assess everything that was announced and leave you with my thoughts. Obviously, I understand that significant upgrades were made to the Mac range, however as an iPhone website, we’re more closely…

Apple Q4 2012 earnings released: 27 million iPhones sold, $36B revenue

It’s that time of year again. Apple has just announced its final quarter earnings for its fiscal year. Just in case you’re new to Apple’s quarters: what is quarter three for every other company and person in the world is Q4 for Apple. So, Q1 2013 started a few weeks back, and ends in January.

Touchscreen production issues to blame for iPad mini’s $329 price tag?

Many Apple supporters are upset over the pricing of the iPad mini. Phil Schiller recently came to the defense of the new product’s price, saying that users are willing to pay for “premium products.” Well, according to the ever questionable DigiTimes, the iPad mini’s touch screen is actually what we have to blame for the $329 price, which is much higher…
