Does Apple really hate leaks?

The past two days have been full of “leaked” Apple product information. From the next iPhone, to the next version of iOS 6, us techies have been given a lot to be excited about.

Tim Cook’s D10 highlights: “Stay tuned”

For the past few years, Steve Jobs attended one public, full length interview. It was held with his good friend, Walt Mossberg, at the All Things Digital Conference.

Redsn0w update allows downgrade to 5.1

A few days ago, Apple released iOS 5.1.1, mainly as a maintenance release. Sadly, the update closed an exploit that was going to be used in an upcoming 5.1 untethered jailbreak.

Top 5: Apple products of the last 5 years

At the weekend I wrote my list of what I consider to be the worst products to come out of Cupertino’s design bunker over the past few years. (Check out my top 5 worst Apple products article here.) But, I couldn’t complain about my favorite tech firm without putting my top 5 products in a separate list. I mean, where’s the consistency in that? And we all…
