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

Microsoft and Adobe holding secret anti-Apple meetings?

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer snuck into Adobe to talk with their CEO, Shantanu Narayen, about how they could team up, cartoon villain-style, to take on the growing mobile power of Apple and one Steven P. Jobs. the NYT Bits blog says:

The meeting, which lasted more than an hour, covered a number of topics, but one of the main thrusts of the discussion was Apple and its control of the mobile phone market and how the two companies could team up in the battle against Apple. A possible acquisition of Adobe by Microsoft were among the options.

iPad originally had 2 dock ports, portrait and landscape?

iPad originally had 2 dock ports, portrait and landscape?

A picture circulating the internet, while not a glimpse at iPad 2 future, turns out to be a glimpse of current iPad past -- an idea Apple might have turned away from at literally the last minute according to Engadget's Joshua Topolsky:

According to a trusted Engadget source, what the image actually shows is a rejected concept from the current generation iPad. The story goes that originally there had been plans to feature two dock connections, but close to the last minute a design decision was made to kill the landscape port.

Given how much Apple dislikes ports or buttons or anything that interferes with their clean, crisp lines, I'm not surprised it went and doubt anything so "ambidockular" will return, but would you have wanted it?

UPDATED: Greenpois0n iOS 4.1 Jailbreak announced! [Jailbreak]

Moments ago, prominent Chronic Dev Team member Joshua Hill (p0sixninja) announced via twitter that "Things have progressed to the point where we don't expect anymore roadblocks. ETA for greenpois0n is 10/10/10 at 10:10:10AM." This hotly anticipated Jailbreak should bring another large contingent into the Jailbreaking community as many new iPhone users who have not been able to jailbreak 4.0.2 and 4.1 will now be able to jailbreak their device.

While details of the jailbreak, such as whether it will be tethered or how it will be implemented have not been announced, that information will likely be given shortly... As a reminder, it is a good idea to save your SHSH blobs with TinyUmbrella if you have not already done so.

Mashable's got the goods on all of it:

WC3 cautions HTML5 lacks interoperability, not ready for production

In an effort to slow the already glacial pace of the iOS-friendly HTML5 standard, the WC3 is telling developers to hold off on deploying the technology in their web sites due to lack of interoperability in certain areas.

"The problem we're facing right now is there is already a lot of excitement for HTML5, but it's a little too early to deploy it because we're running into interoperability issues," including differences between video on devices, said the official, Philippe Le Hegaret, W3C interaction domain leader. He is responsible for specifications like HTML and SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics).
