Is iPhone 4 "Glassgate" real?

Since Ryan Block, formerly editor-in-chief of Engadget and current co-founder of GDGT, reported Apple was in a secret lock-down over slide-on cases and particulate causing iPhone 4 glass backplates to scratch and break, there's been a lot of debate as to the merit and credibility of the charges.

The Macalope takes particular issue with it in Macworld:

iPad launching at Walmart next week

We've known iPad is coming to Walmart for a long while now but it looks like next week it will finally arrive. Following on the heels of Target and Amazon -- and Apple Online and Apple Retail -- if Apple can meet demand that's a huge retail footprint for iPad this holiday season.

And I'm starting to run out of 7-Eleven and QuickyMart jokes about where it will show up next, so if you have any ideas drop them in the comments.

Limera1n teases all iOS device exploit, return of Geohot?

Looks like Geohot wants back with limera1n and back in on the Jailbreak scene. Just day after Chronic Dev Team and Comex announced the 10/10/10 release date of Greenpois0n, he has announced his own bootrom exploit, which he wants included in Greenpois0n, no doubt delaying it's release... What will Chronic Dev Team do? According to the @chronicdevteam twitter account:

We are currently working the "situation" out. Don't worry, you'll still get the jailbreak in the end, nothing to be concerned about.

Has Apple always had a 7-inch iPad?

Has Apple always had a 7-inch iPad?

As with Intel Macs and CDMA iPhones, I always assume Apple tried out every logical variation of a product in the labs, and has every sensible alternative prototyped and tested as a release candidate before ultimately deciding the best device with which to go to market. So it's not surprise Jim Dalrymple of the Loop confirms a 7-inch iPad has been around since the get go:

The fact is, Apple already has a 7-inch iPad. They have had one of the smaller devices since they started making the 9.7-inch iPad that we have now.

To be clearer, the two devices were developed at the same time. They have pretty much the same specs, except, of course, the 9.7-inch model has a higher density screen than its smaller counterpart.

Android founder says carriers add value, we do a spit take

Given all the Verizon iPhone rumors of late, and given our fears Verizon would try to mutilate iOS the way it's mutilated Android, it's rather shocking to hear Android founder Andy Rubin say the following to PCMag's Sacha Segan:

NYT: Apple making iPhone for Verizon

NYT: Apple making iPhone for Verizon

If the Wall Street Journal wasn't enough to convince you Apple was making an iPhone for Verizon, then ladies and gentlemen we give you the paper of record:

After more than three years of using only AT&T cellphone networks, Apple is making a version of the iPhone 4 for Verizon’s network, according to a person who is in direct contact with Apple. Apple and Verizon will begin selling the phone early next year, the person said, who agreed to speak on condition of anonymity because the plans were supposed to be confidential and he did not want to alienate his contacts at Apple.

Reminder: .Mac HomePage goes buh-bye in November

Reminder: .Mac HomePage goes buh-bye in November

Apple has sent out a reminder to MobileMe members who subscribed back in the old .Mac days and used HomePage to publish content to the web.

The short version is, after November 8 you'll no longer be able to view those pages though the content will remain in your iDisk and can be reused in things like MobileMe Gallery, or republished via the iWeb app. (Or who knows, maybe something even more interesting when/if iLife '11 is announced).

For the long version, follow after the break.

And we can't help but ask -- was anyone still using HomePage anyway?

Apple working on music subscriptions again/finally?

Apple working on music subscriptions again/finally?

Is Apple finally (or once again) working on a music subscription service like Napster, Rhapsody, and Zune Pass? The New York Post thinks so:

Apple is talking with the major record labels about a subscription music service that would give customers unlimited access to songs for a monthly fee, sources told The Post.

One source said the service could have tiered pricing ranging from $10 to $15, although there are issues to be ironed out, including how much music would be included in each tier and how long consumers would be able to access that content.

The labels are rumored to be supportive of the idea, or of any idea that will jumpstart sagging music sales.

And yes, it's ironic we're running this story right after the post about Apple potentially

Is Apple trying to block Spotify streaming music in the US?

Is Apple trying to block popular European streaming music service Spotify's US launch? In addition to labels being uncertain as to Spotify's business model, it's ability to monetize, and the future of ad-supported music, CNET is reporting:

In meetings in Los Angeles recently, Apple executives told their music industry counterparts that they had serious doubts about whether Spotify's business model could ever generate significant revenues or profits, according to two sources with knowledge of the discussions.
