Apple has purchased mobile marketing company … Read More

Apple iPad Competition Starts To Drop Out

The most interesting story this week in tech was one that wasn’t even properly reported. As the Apple iPad gained momentum as the de facto tablet computer, the expected competition started to slowly bow out of the race.

Adobe’s CEO responds to Apple’s Open Letter On Flash

Frankly the Adobe CEO’s WSJ interview, which ended up focussing on his rebuttal of Steve Jobs’ Open Letter on Flash, was embarrassing. Mr. Narayen called Steve’s accusations of Flash draining battery power “patently false.” A statement which is in itself “patently false”.

Apple Rejects iSealClub. PETA says ‘Good Job, Steve Jobs!’

Apple continues to make headlines for its App Store approval process.

Apple’s iAd to be a Premium Mobile Ad Service

The Wall Street Journal is reporting some interesting, and I think quite exciting, news about how Apple intends to position its iAd service.
