Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Apple patents are a dime a dozen and cover a very wide swath of products, processes and technologies.

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online As one season passes, another begins, and so goes the setting to rest of Apple´s MobileMe and iWork.com as iCloud takes over syncing duties for Apple devices.

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Some of Apple´s high-profile legal battles have come to a close in recent weeks. Paying out a nice, round $2 million to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, the Cupertino company appeased their federal court system for labeling their iPad as 4G in the Land Down Under.

To paraphrase, “Stuff rolls downhill.” Take, for instance, the latest scandal involving an Atlanta Apple Store and a local student and Iran. For reasons far beyond my understanding or pay grade, Iran and the U.S. do not have the best of relations. As such, the US will not trade with Iran, Cuba, North Korea, Sudan or Syria. These large governments, run by powerful...

2012-06-24 05:36:52

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com In an unorthodox move late this week, Apple invited its retail store staff to give its latest unreleased Mac operating system a whirl.
