Keen computer collector Melissa Maloney has a lot of iPods. A LOT of iPods. And quite a few computers too, including an ancient Canon Cat.
I saw her stuff and wanted to ask her: Why do you have so many iPods? What’s the appeal of these old computers? So I did. And here’s what she [...]

With the iPad due to hit mailboxes this Saturday — a fact leaving many of you no doubt anxiously staring out the window for a UPS truck, frantically refreshing the tracking page — how does Apple prevent any models from getting out a day early? According to BGR, they use a bit of a dirty trick, to make sure no copies accidentally get put in the brown vans before they’re meant to. Since the iPads were shipped from overseas, they need to pass customs to make it through the border, and before UPS can start sending them out, they need to see the clearance papers. Papers which Apple is apparently intentionally sitting on, so that the iPads don’t hit the streets before they’re meant to.
Now live on the iTunes download page, or through software update, it’s iTunes 9.1! New features include:
- -Sync with iPad to enjoy your favorite music, movies, TV shows, books and more on the go
- -Organize and sync books you’ve downloaded from iBooks on iPad or added to your iTunes library
- Rename, rearrange, or remove Genius Mixes
It also appears as though you can import eBooks that you already have on your HD, which will help a lot for organizing them on non-iPad devices too, as my eBooks are a mammoth mess on my EZReader right now.
With the mammoth rumors of a new iPhone springing forth from the likes of the WSJ and John Gruber suggesting that we’ll see increased resolution and a front-facing camera. This video from iPhone repair shop SmartPhone Medic seems to fit the rumors, though it could just be a marketing stunt. The display shown in the video is a touch longer than the pre-existing iPhone covers, and it has a hole near the speaker — assumedly for a front-facing camera.
The extra length in the screen is almost entirely in the lower portion, near the home button, which some suppose might be due to the next generation 802.11n antennae.
Here’s a very cool mockup of the iPhone 4G with an aluminum “unibody” enclosure from our friend Graham Bower of MacPredictions.com.
The mockup takes its style cues from Apple’s current lineup of unibody MacBook Pros, which are carved from single slabs of aluminum. Metal gives the iPhone a much nicer look and feel.
Like today’s rumors, Graham [...]
One of the coolest new features introduced in Leopard’s version of Mail is the ability to automatically add contact details to Address Book.
