Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Earlier this year, the Wall Street Journal broke the news that Google had been bypassing some security and privacy features on Apple´s iPhone which allowed the tracking of third party cookies. The trouble with this, of course, was that even if an iPhone user went out of their way to turn off these third party cookies, Google made sure to track them regardless. Today, it´s been announced that Google has agreed to pay a...

2012-07-23 09:33:50

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online One month after we first heard rumors of Apple dropping their long standing 30-pin dock connector in the latest, unreleased iPhone, Reuters has come through with a confirmation of their own.

Confirmed! iPhone 5 Will Be Even Thinner
2012-07-17 14:24:12

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online They´ve done it again. The Wall Street Journal has more-or-less confirmed another rumor about the new iPhone. In April, a KGI security analyst reported Apple´s next smartphone would use a brand new, cutting-edge technology to shave off a few millimeters. Ming-chi Kuo also made claims about the death of the 17-inch MacBook Pro. Apple silently laid the portly portable to rest during their 2012 WWDC keynote....

2012-07-06 08:49:36

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online If you haven´t been to an Apple store lately, say in the past 8 months, I suggest you take a visit next time you´re near one. Yes, they may be busier than you remember, what with the increasing population of Apple buyers and Apple users, but they are still a thing of wonder. A couple of weeks ago, while I was waiting to meet an old friend and fellow redOrbit staff writer, I decided to pop in for a moment. After all,...

2012-07-05 06:23:37

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online It´s official: The iPad mini rumors simply refuse to die. I´m not entirely sure why these rumors live on, or why anyone would want an iPad mini, but here we are. You, in front of your computer (or full-sized iPad, the way god intended), and me once again waxing philosophical about electronics on the day of our countries birth. It´s a topsy turvy world we live in. These rumors last popped up in April, not long...

2012-06-19 13:55:38
