120,000,000 iOS devices sold, 250,000 apps, 6.5 billion downloads - by the numbers

As usual, Steve Jobs began his Apple music event keynote today by giving a breakdown of iOS devices sold to date -- 120,000,000. It took them from June 2007 to June 2010 to reach 100,000,000 and only 3 months to add another 20,000,000 on top of that. Jobs also said they're activating new devices at a rate of 230,000 a day.

iTunes 10 Ping social music network gallery

iTunes 10 Ping social music network gallery

iTunes 10 is slowly, painfully going live right now and if you manage to download it, you can set up Apple's new social music network, Ping. I've done that (you can find me here), and hooked it up with Facebook Connect, and...

Meh. Unless I'm missing something fairly major, it looks like only the Lady GaGa's of the world (i.e recording artists) can share status, pictures, and videos, and get comments. The rest of us can find and follow friends, share musical tastes and buy concert tickets, but not much else.

Anyone else trying it and liking it?

Gallery after the break!

Apple releases new iPod touch, iPod nano commercials

Apple has released new commercials for their updated iPod touch 4 and iPod nano 6. iPod touch - All kinds of fun holds true to its roots -- lots of hands doing lots of awesome things, but iPod nano - Travel seems more like a hybrid, including elements previously seen in iPod shuffle commercials -- less nano chromatic, more wearable.

Check out both commercials after the break and let us know what you think. Do they convince you to buy?

iOS 4.1 Gold Master now available to developers

Apple has begun seeding iOS 4.1 Gold Master to developers, the final step before the general availability release promised for next week.

In addition to fixes for proximity sensors, Bluetooth, and iPhone 3G performance, it includes Game Center, HD photos, HD YouTube uploads, and TV rentals.

If you're a developer, head on over to developer.apple.com and start downloading. No doubt the App Store will start taking iOS 4.1 compiled binaries any time now...

Epic Citadel for iPhone, iPad demo now in App Store

Epic Citadel for iPhone, iPad demo now in App Store

One of the highlights of today's Apple special music event was Epic who showed off their first iOS game. The game, an action-packed, sword-fighting, RPG adventure looked beyond gorgeous (it's from the people who made Gears of War, what do you expect?) and it's coming later this year.

But you can snag a copy of the demo in the iTunes App Store now.

Apple TV has A4 chip, iOS, so where are the apps, games, a web browser?

Apple TV has A4 chip, iOS, so where are the apps, games, a web browser?

The new Apple TV is running on an Apple A4 chip, just like iPhone and iPad, and almost certainly running iOS, so where are the apps, games, and web browser?

We got Netflix, but it was built in just like YouTube. We got iOS under the covers but no iOS-style UI. We got AirPlay, so we can stream from iPhone or iPad, and presumably there'll be an Apple Remote app to control Apple TV via iPhone or iPad...

... but I kinda wanted more.

iOS 4.1 to fix proximity sensor, Bluetooth, and iPhone 3G performance bugs

iOS 4.1 to fix proximity sensor, Bluetooth, and iPhone 3G performance bugs

Steve Jobs began his introduction of iOS 4.1 for iPhone and iPod touch not by listing the new features, but by listing the bugs it fixes -- proximity sensor, Bluetooth, and iPhone 3G.

Each of those were annoying enough to be near deal-breakers for some, so their being fixed is certainly good news. Finally.
