Regarding Steve Jobs and WWDC

There was some great news this week on the Steve Jobs front. According to the WSJ his Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak said Jobs sounded "healthy and energetic" while admitting he'd never asked directly about Jobs' health.

SetteB.it ran a story saying Jobs had gone into Apple HQ for a meeting.

Apple iPhone Activation Offline on Sunday, May 31?

Apple iPhone Activation Offline on Sunday, May 31?

TiPb just received a tip from inside one of Apple's carrier partners on the memo reproduced below. We can't verify it but are running it just in case anyone notices any problems and comes looking for potential causes.

Our tipster thought Apple might be using the downtime to prep for some iPhone 3.0 and next-generation iPhone hardware goodness. We have no way of verifying that either, of course, but with under 10 days to WWDC 2009, nothing -- fact or fiction -- surprises us anymore...

On Sunday evening May 31 / Monday June 1, in some time zones Apple will perform maintenance on the servers responsible for all iPhone activations.

This is a planned maintenance that begins at 8:00 p.m. and ends at 11:00 p.m., United States Pacific time.

During the scheduled downtime, attempts to activate a new iPhone will result in iTunes displaying a message that says activations are currently unavailable.

Apple Edu Promo: Buy a Mac - Get a Free iPod touch

Apple Edu Promo: Buy a Mac - Get a Free iPod touch

Apple is gearing up their 2009 university student-targeted promotion, and it turns out this year is a lot like last year:

A Mac has everything university students need for school. And now it includes something extra special. When university students buy a qualifying Mac, they'll get a free iPod touch after mail-in rebate. And they save even more with Apple education pricing. This offer is for a limited time and is available only at the Apple Online Store, Apple Retail Stores, and Apple Authorized Campus Stores.

Daring Satire: Excerpts From the Diary of an App Store Reviewer

Daring Satire: Excerpts From the Diary of an App Store Reviewer

Daring Fireball has posted a bitingly satirical look at Apple's iPhone App Store review process which, like the best of comedy, is firmly rooted in both tragedy and truth. That Apple hasn't posted clear guidelines for developers is frustrating enough. That they apparently haven't imposed them on their own internal staff raises the flabbergast bar to dizzying new heights.

With 35,000+ apps and a billion downloads Apple is well on their way towards building that next great platform. Until they fix the app approval process, however, that building is a house of cards.

Another Warning From AT&T to iPhone Users with Non-iPhone Data Plans

Another Warning From AT&T to iPhone Users with Non-iPhone Data Plans

It was not that long ago TiPb passed along some warning signs we'd seen about AT&T cracking down on iPhone users who currently not on an iPhone data plan. Well they've gone and given all of you rebels out there one more warning for good measure.

After some digging around in AT&T's myWireless application, we have found yet another dose of legalese from AT&T that states they can and will change your data plan and charge you accordingly if you are currently using an iPhone with any data plan other than the iPhone data plan.

A tipster has seen the new matte iPhone and the bugger has a light-up Apple. That’s right: it lights the freak up.

Finance is running some commentary from WSJ tech-guru Walt Mossberg and while everyone is quick to point out that Apple is not at his All-Things Digital D7 conference this year (that's keeping all our sibling sites CrackBerry.com and PreCentral.net busy), they're still the super smartphone in the room:
