Do In-App Purchases Count Towards "Top Grossing" App Store Rankings?

One of the many, many "great unknowns" of Apple's iPhone App Store is how the top-grossing list is calculated, specifically whether or not it factors in revenue from in-app purchases. While we could theoretically wait and see if, now that they too can use in-app purchase, a free app makes its way up the list, the folks at Freeverse wanted an answer now. And they think they've found it:

CEOh-SNAP: AT&T Says (Again!) iPhone Exclusivity Will End

AT&T CEO Ralph de la Vega stated that his carrier's exclusive agreement to sell Apple's iPhone in the US... will end one day. Of course, we knew this. You knew this. AT&T and Apple knew this.

Attack of the iClones: Microsoft Literally Copies the Apple Store

Microsoft has opened their first Microsoft Store, and kudos to them for that. However, we can't help but feel that by literally copying an Apple Store to the degree that only the signage and products are swapped out, Microsoft cost consumers a chance to experience something different, something innovative, and something that would have continued to push the retail part of the computer and smartphone industry.

AT&T Q3 Results -- 3.2 Million iPhones Activated, 40% to New Customers

Hot on the heels of Apple's Q4 results come AT&T's Q3 report, and the iPhone-related news keeps getting better and better, including a record 3.2 million activations, 40% of which went to new customers.

And the records didn't stop there. Highest Q3 net subscriber gain, best ever Q3 churn rate, largest quarterly increase of integrated devices (like iPhone) in history, and 33.6% increase in data revenue.

What's astonishing is this growth persists despite widespread, ongoing -- almost farcical at this point -- reports of poor network experience for iPhone users. Imagine if AT&T could build out infrastructure to meet demand in areas like San Francisco and New York?

Gizmodo is reporting that AT&T sent out a letter to employees encouraging them, along with their families, to protest the FCC's net neutrality rules. It was said the letter even encouraged the use of the employees private email instead of their company email.

Mythical Apple iTablet to be Ultimate Comic Book Reader?

Could Apple's still unannounced, non-existant (for consumers anyway) iTablet be the ultimate comic book reader? Chicago Sun-Times columnist, Apple aficionado, and Sheldon-esque comic book lover Andy Ihnatko suggests just that. When writing about LongBox, which seeks to do for comics what iTunes did for music (i.e. bring a fractured, self-destructive, myopic industry kicking and screaming into the 21st century), he says:
