Black 16GB iPad mini pre-orders sold out too

Yesterday when trying to order a white iPad mini, it became almost instantly clear that they were sold out, as shipping times had slipped to 2 weeks after only 20 minutes of availability. Other sites quickly picked up on it too, and it’s not known whether it was a case of demand being incredibly high, or that produced quantities were lower than the…

Which of Apple’s new products impresses you most? [POLL]

It’s been 4 days since the Apple Special Event took place at the California Theater in San Jose. I think we can all agree that we were a little surprised at just how many refreshed products were given center stage at the event.

Tim Cook continues to bash Microsft Surface, 7-inch tablets, says iPad mini is in a different league

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…
