Netgear CEO issues apology via email for Steve Jobs comments

It appears as if Netgear's CEO is trying to back peddle his way out of those harsh words he had for Steve Jobs and Apple yesterday. In an email, Patrick Lo says he still feels the same towards Apple keeping iOS closed but says he does apologize for the remarks he made about Apple's CEO Steve Jobs.

Google 'Instant Previews' appearing on iOS devices.

Google 'Instant Previews' is slowly appearing on iPhones and iPads.

Google rolled out their 'Instant Search' feature to iOS last November which allowed you to see instant results as you typed in your search. 'Instant Previews' allows you to view a screenshot of any webpage before loading it up, saving you time in the long run.

'Instant Previews' is accessed by tapping a small magnifying glass next to a result, which opens a new UI (reminicent to Safari's Tab UI) so you can scroll through all the different page screenshots.

Instant Previews hasn't hit all iOS devices yet, and Google is still yet to make an official announcement.

iOS 4.3 features: Cancel app download/install

Looks like iOS 4.3, at least in the current beta, finally brings with it the ability to cancel app downloads/installs. Hit the App Store, start a download, and if you suddenly have second thoughts -- maybe you don't have time or bandwidth at the moment -- just tap and hold to enter jiggly mode and the X badge shows up on the downloading app. Tap the X, confirm you really want to delete, and the download and install stops and the icon vanishes.

Under current and previous versions of iOS, Jiggly Mode wouldn't provide the X badge for downloading/installing apps.

According to the New York Times, Apple has rejected a few apps recently including Sony’s Reader app, based on the way content is purchased for use within the app. Sony's Reader app is an eBook platform similar to Apple’s own iBooks app and the Amazon Kindle app. Content can be found and purchased outside the app, bypassing Apple's iTunes Store and therefore bypassing Apples slice of the pie.

Apple seeds iOS 4.2.6 for Verizon iPhone in advance of launch

Apple has put iOS 4.2.6 for Verizon iPhone (iPhone 3,3) up on their servers in advance of the February 10 launch date. The firmware version shown off at the Verizon iPhone launch event was 4.2.5 so there's been a minor point bump worth of updates since then.

Those hoping the Verizon iPhone would ship with iOS 4.3, anticipating a wide release for iOS 4.3 for the AT&T/GSM iPhone (iPhone 3,1) at the same time, will no doubt be disappointed (and no, there doesn't seem to be a 4.2.6 for the AT&T/GSM iPhone posted at this time.)

So if you're testin

AT&T faces a new class action lawsuit claiming that AT&T is overstating and over-billing iPhone and iPad data charges. The class compares AT&T's billing system to a rigged gas pump that charges for a full gallon when, in fact, it only pumps nine-tenths of a gallon into your car's tank.

Motorola Xoom Superbowl ad targets Apple iPad, shows no product

According to Android Central this is Motorola's big Superbowl commercial for their new Android 3.0 Honeycomb-running Xoom tablet, and it's targeting Apple's iPad by once again trotting out the old canard of Apple fascism. I'm glad AC managed to sleuth that out because I'm not sure many mainstream football viewers are going to have any idea at all what this thing is about.

So have at it in the comments. What will people think this ad is for? Spaceballs
