2012-08-18 05:54:55

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online When Apple makes a mistake, they´re always very good about fessing up to it. Scratch that: When Apple believes there was a mistake to be made in the first place and that, somehow, they´ve made it, they´re very good about fessing up. So, when MacRumors.com ran a story on Monday about possible significant layoffs of new hires at the Apple retail stores, many began to wonder what was going on down in Cupertino....

Keeping The Apple TV Rumors Alive
2012-08-16 14:03:30

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Perhaps we´ve become bored with the iPhone and “iPad Mini” rumors. Perhaps – and this is a shame – we already know all we need to know about the next iPhone. In which case, Apple could just release the thing tomorrow, we´d all buy it straight away, and Apple wouldn´t have to go through the whole flash and pomp of a press event. For the second time this month, the Apple TV has come back...

2012-08-14 13:24:08

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online By now, most everyone agrees Apple will announce a new iPhone come September 12, just 29 days from now. The team at app4phone.fr had the September 12 date first. Then, last month, iMore.com got involved with their own rumor: Apple would announce a new iPhone and a new iPad Mini on the same day. Later, in a rumor reminiscent of the “Apple will refresh the entire Mac line!” rumor in the days before WWDC,  iMore...

Apple Stores Reportedly Offer Price Matching

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online I´ve said it once before. I´ve even made incredibly clumsy references to a Radiohead album: Everything is in its right place. Although, on second thought, if I were going to go down that path, perhaps I should have went with “Jigsaw Falling Into Place?” Oh Hindsight, thy name is beach. All these Radiohead references are meant to say, People Get Ready. Things are starting to fall into place for an...

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Remember those Apple TV rumors? Earlier this year, it seemed all we in the Apple press could talk about was Apple´s inevitable entrance to the television box market, Steve Jobs´ famous “I cracked it” comments, and by how much Apple would crush any competitors that might stand in between Cupertino and total domination. It´s not entirely clear what happened to our collective excitement about this fantasy...

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Apple´s ad agency is saying they´re not reacting or responding to waves and waves of criticism, but they´ve finally stopped showing those horrendous, Sitcom-y Genius ads. “Josh the Genius” made his way to American TV last week during the opening week of the 2012 London Olympic games. Immediately following the virginal showing of the ads, forum boards, tech-centric blogs and most importantly, Twitter was...

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online As they say, another day, another Apple suit. More specifically, Apple now has to ward off yet another suit in China, adding additional hurdles in their great Westward expansion. When Apple finally settled their legal issues with display maker Proview earlier this summer, other suits immediately followed. Only hours after Apple agreed to pay out $60 million to the debt-ridden display maker, a household chemical company by...

Applesauce: All Things Apple – August 5, 2012
2012-08-05 04:41:18

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online In this, the first week of the international Olympic Games, Apple took on Samsung in legal feats of strength. In doing so, of course, they´ve had to reveal some of their secret sauce, bad for their egos, but good for those of us nosey Apple watchers. They also released some new, terrible ads meant to bring more people into the fold, (I guess) and the rumor mill has finally whittled down a possible iPhone announcement....
