Early iPhone engineer shares stories of Safari's move to mobile

What was it like moving Apple's Safari web browser from the Mac to the original iPhone? More interestingly, what was it like doing it under the attention of Steve Jobs? Former Apple engineer Francisco Tolmasky spoke with Brian X. Chen about it as part of the publicity for his new iOS game, Bonsai Slice. There are lots of great anecdotes included, including how Ken Kocienda ended up creating the iPhone keyboard, insight into Don Melton's and Henri Lamiraux's teams, and, of course, Steve Jobs.

Your next pull-to-refresh could pull in an ad too

Your next pull-to-refresh could pull in an ad too

Advertising provider Appsfire has a new ad unit, but this one's not always going to be in your face: if only appears when you pull to refresh. Dubbed "Brichter-San", after the Loren Brichter, creator of the pull-to-refresh gesture, the ad unit is hidden until a user performs the gesture. The ads are native, and right now purely focused on apps, and pull their content all from Appsfire's servers.

Bid for a lunch with Tim Cook, help a good cause

Apple CEO Tim Cook is offering a lunch date on charity auction site CharityBuzz. The current winning bid sits at $48,000, though the auction still has another 19 days to go. The winner and a guest will be able to snag an hour with Cook for lunch. They'll also have to get through security screening, and it may take up to a year to find a hole in Cook's schedule, according to the fine print.

Apple's 7 for 1 stock split: What you need to know!

Apple's 7 for 1 stock split: What you need to know!

Alongside their Q2 2014 results, Apple announced a 7 for 1 stock split. In other words every share of AAPL will soon become 7 shares of AAPL. Whenever a big company announces a stock split lots of people talk about it as if it’s some kind of big deal. It isn’t really a big deal at all. Public companies like Apple have their shares traded on a stock exchange where average Joe buyers like you and I can buy and sell. Big money managers can do the same. The total number of shares in existence makes up the entire company. I often explain that it’s like cutting a pizza.

Tim Cook's game with Wall Street: Underpromise and overdeliver

Tim Cook is playing a dangerous game with investors, analysts and tech journalists. We've been hearing for months about how Apple will launch products in new categories, but there's still no sign of these new products. Time will tell if Cook's gamble to tease us will pay off.

Google Glass online orders are still apparently open

Update: Aaaaaaand it's gone. Google's store is now marked as out of stock.

Last week Google Glass ditched the invites and went on sale to anyone and everyone for just one day. That meant that whoever wanted to snag Glass could do so without any caveats, like having to sign up for the Explorer program or wait on an invite. While the Glass page is currently showing the program as closed once again, it appears that Glass may still be available for purchase directly from Google.

How to manage Notification Center banners, popups, badges, and sounds on your iPhone and iPad

How to manage Notification Center banners, popups, badges, and sounds on your iPhone and iPad

Notification Center alerts you to everything that's happening on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad using a combination of banners, popups, badges, and sounds/vibrations. That's great if it's something really important like an alarm, appointment, or iMessage. But when every app and game on your iPhone starts blinking, beeping, and buzzing, notifications quickly turns into interruptions. When everything is urgent, nothing is. Luckily, Notification Center also lets you turn off those banners, popups, badges, and sounds on an app-by-app basis, so you get to decide what's important enough to get your attention. That's right, serenity -- and sanity! -- can be yours again in just a few simple steps.

Apple Q2 2014: Wow, were we wrong!

Last night I was all set to review another boring Apple quarter. Many stock followers thought the numbers would arrive in line with guidance (and Street expectations), and that there wouldn't be too much exciting stuff happen on the call.

Wow. Were we wrong.
