Apple Investigates: "Exploding" iPhones and iPods

Numerous press reports are claiming that iPhones and iPods are "exploding" -- well, three isolated devices, at least so far. Apple is said to be investigating these reports and have no answers as of now.

blockquote>"These are isolated incidents and... there is not a general problem, For the cases which have been reported in the media, Apple [is] trying to get more information on the details of the incidents and will do tests as necessary to investigate the possible cause."

AppJudgment Brings Mobile Application Reviews to Revision3 Network

Patrick Norton from Revision3 was gracious enough to join us last night on iPhone Live! and tell us about the new internet show he's co-hosting, AppJudgement. According to Norton, many of the Revision3 staff were so passionate about their mobile devices they just couldn't resist adding this show to their lineup. Check out the first episode, embedded above, and find out what Norton and friends think of iPhone twitter clients.

(They'll also cover Android Apps, and when more are available, Palm Pre. Windows Mobile and BlackBerry should also be on the horizon).

Steve Jobs Asked Palm's Colligan to Stop Stealing Apple Employees?

Steve Jobs Asked Palm's Colligan to Stop Stealing Apple Employees?

Did Apple CEO Steve Jobs approach former Palm CEO Ed Colligan back in 2007 with a gentleman's agreement to stop hiring each other's employees? (Similar to the agreement allegedly just terminated between Apple and Google?)

Bloomberg, based on communications revealed by Palm's Derick Mains, says indeed he did. The conversation reportedly took place in August 2007, after Apple unveiled the iPhone in January and shipped it in June -- and after Apple had hired 2% of Palm's workforce to do it. Palm then brought former Apple iPod executive Jon Rubinstein on board to reboot their smartphone efforts, and it's at this point Steve Jobs apparently stepped in:

Apple is Holding a Music Event - So Beatles on iTunes Rumors, Right?

Will the Beatles Arrive on iTunes this Year?(survey software)

As the typical timeframe for Apple's annual Music Event -- focused on iTunes and the iPod -- draws close, rumors have once again turned to... the Beatles. Perhaps because no other band seems both as close to Apple founder Steve Jobs' persona, and yet is still utterly missing from the digital download space.

Analyze This: 82+ Million iPhones to be Sold in 2012?

Analyze This: 82+ Million iPhones to be Sold in 2012?

Yeah, so if the analysts are to be believed -- and Hollywood is wrong about the world ending first - - Apple might just sell 82+ million iPhones in 2012 (not by 2012, but 82+ million that year alone!) accounting for 5.7% of the market.

RBC guestimates that Apple will dominate the media-centric category of smartphones, much as RIM will dominate productivity, leaving Palm and perhaps others to fill out 2-3 additional categories like personal information management, cloud-focused, etc.

The growth in smartphones is expected to come not only at the expense of feature phones, but of PC-class devices as well (fulfilling the so-called Post-PC prophecy).

The Competition: Palm Pre/webOS Homebrew the Flip Side of Jailbreaking?

The Competition: Palm Pre/webOS Homebrew the Flip Side of Jailbreaking?

Our sibling site, PreCentral.net has put together something we're openly and admittedly jealous of -- a brand-spanking new Homebrew Apps gallery for the Palm Pre. For those unfamiliar with Homebrew, think of it as something akin to the iPhone's Jailbreak ecosystem, where apps are developed outside "official" SDK channels and installed without the built in App Store (or App Catalog in this case).

Jailbreak, of course, is and has always been one of the brightest, most creative and vibrant parts of the iPhone (and TiPb!) community, and it looks like Homebrew is every bit the same for the Palm Pre (and likely future webOS devices).
