Back during September's iPod and iTunes focused "Let's Rock" event, Apple announced that they would begin carrying "stunning" HD TV Shows, and that -- surprise surprise -- NBC had come skulking back into the fold as well.

Friday Fun Rumor: 3D Turn-By-Turn GPS Navigation for iPhone Post 2.2?

Huge rumor. No corroboration. Not journalism. Posting this from a first time, antonymous tipster and if it doesn't pan out... well... I'll be boiled in clam chowder eventually anyway...

Steve Speaks: It's Not Easy Being Greener

Because of Apple's high media profile, Greenpeace likes to have a little fun with them. Nothing gets headlines like bashing Apple in the tech industry, especially if you're hippie enough to make Steve Jobs seem more like Stephen Colbert.
