Ninja crashes car into Greensboro Apple Store

Ninja crashes car into Greensboro Apple Store

We kid you not -- a man described by security as wearing a white ninja suit crashed his car through the Greensboro Apple Store before fleeing on foot.

Greensboro police received a call around 4:43 a.m. after a dark gray or blue Honda crashed into the store. According to police, the man crashed into the store in a robbery attempt.

The store will remain closed today, of course, while they see to damages. (And perhaps look into hiring some samurai to increase security?)

    App for That: How to blur sensitive material from photos

    There are hundreds of thousands of iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps for just about everything -- so how come the one you need, the one you know just has to be there, is so hard to find? Enter TiPb's new weekly feature where staff and readers alike sort through the App Store and help you find just the right App for That. This week, KP asks:

    I sometimes need to take a quick pic and upload it to Facebook but need to blur out some incriminating evidence first (don't ask!!) I know there must be an app that let's me do that but damned if I can find it. Can you recommend something?

    To see what we found, follow along after the break!

    Tim Cook says iPad will eventually outsell PCs

    According to Goldman Sachs analyst Bill Shope, Apple COO Tim Cook suggested during a meeting that the tablet market -- which is currently dominated by the iPad -- could eclipse the PC market over the next several years.

    Shope says, "the company appeared more overtly optimistic on the long-term prospects for the iOS platform than it has been in quite some time." Cook said, "he sees no reason why the tablet market shouldn’t eclipse the PC market over the next several years," according to Shope's note.

    Moscone banner shows off iCloud icon in advance of WWDC 2011

    Look through the glass and what do we see, the iCloud logo on a banner at WWDC! Yes, it does seem like someone traced the MobileMe icon to make the iCloud icon but that's also a nice little bit of continuity.

    iTunes/App Store down?

    Looks like Apple is having some trouble with the iTunes and App Stores today, as tons of you are telling us you're getting that nasty little "could not complete request" error message above. Whether or not it has anything to do with the the ginormous new Data Center, or the coming iCloud, we don't know and can't tell you, but we're keeping an eye on things and will update as we get more info.

    9to5Mac is hearing that new Time Capsules -- the Airport Extreme and hard drive in one -- are on the way that might just be smart enough to download and cache iOS (and Mac) software updates for you, so they're waiting when you're ready.

    Hail, Dieter, and farewell!

    28

    Hail, Dieter, and farewell!

    Today is Dieter Bohn's last day with TiPb and the Smartphone Experts Network. Up until today, our editor-in-chief, Dieter founded TiPb -- then PhoneDifferent -- for SPE, recruited yours truly and most of the other staff at our sibling sites, and taught us how to run sites, communities, and generally be better bloggers than any of us could have imagined.

    Dieter's going to take a short, and much deserved vacation, but then promises to be back with new endeavors. We wish him well! Our good buddy Kevin Michaluk will be stepping in to help fill his big, blond shoes, and Derek Kessler is taking the reigns over at PreCentral. Phil at Android Central and Dan at WPCentral... well, you're still stuck with us.

    We're going to miss Dieter terribly, but we're also incredibly excited at what's coming next for SPE. It's a new start for everyone, and we can't wait to share it with you.
