Kid Finds Porn in Apple Store & Angry Mom Complains

Porn and iPhone, it is out there and every once in a while you may even find porn in there. In an Apple Retail Store on one of the iPhone and iPod Touch demos, that is. Well that's exactly what happened just the other day as a mother found her 10 year old girl mesmerized by some X-rated content on one of the Apple stores demo devices.

Netflix Sees Apple Partnership, iPhone Streaming to "Come Over Time"

Netflix, which mails DVDs and Blu-Ray discs to subscribers and streams movies and TV shows directly to Xbox 360 and other set-top box owners, commented on the likelihood of their working with Apple, and specifically providing an app for the iPhone:

“[A partnership with Apple] is something that’s likely to come over time,” Hastings said. “But nothing in the short term. [With] movie watching, we are not focused on mobile yet, but on the TV, on Blu-ray and on the video game consoles. We will get to mobile eventually, including the iPhone.”

Microsoft Stores Staffing Up... With Apple Store Employees

Microsoft Stores Staffing Up... With Apple Store Employees

Microsoft is beginning to staff up their upcoming retail store chain using freshly poached Apple Store managers and employees. Using "significant raises" and in some cases, moving expenses as the carrot, Apple Store managers are hunted and then asked to contact their (now former) top Apple Store salespeople and offer them similar incentives to switch from Mac to PC.

Employees, of course, are not the only thing Microsoft is taking from the Apple Store experienced. Having hired Apple's former retail location scout, George Blankenship, their plan is to open up right next door to Apple Stores everywhere.

iTunes LP and iTunes Extra First Step by Apple Towards User-Generated Media Store?

iTunes LP and iTunes Extra First Step by Apple Towards User-Generated Media Store?

iTunes Extras was easy to see as a DVD extras competitor, offering a similar feature set to what's already on the market, and users are already familiar with using. iTunes LP, on the other hand, harkened back to a time decades ago when vinyl albums and turn-tables were how people experienced music -- something decidedly not familiar to modern MP3 and iTunes music listeners.

Poll: FCC to Announce "Net Neutrality" Today. You Want?

Do you want legislated net neutrality?(polling)

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the FCC is set to announce what amounts to "net neutrality" today, something that will make users and technology companies like Google, Amazon, and Apple's iTunes ecstatic, while roshambo'ing Big Telco right where it hurts.

Basically, net neutrality means data carriers like cable and DLS providers and wireless/mobile telephone companies can't restrict what travels over their lines or airwaves. Data is data. Disallow SlingPlayer or Skype? Sorry, not allowed.

Hard to believe this was just four years ago. The demo starts around 2:45; the look of utter contempt comes about a minute later.

(Not iPhone friendly, sorry).

An undisclosed number of users who have posted on Apple's discussion boards about poor battery life following the iPhone 3.1 software update are being contacted by AppleCare helpdesk with a hefty list of 11 follow-up questions. These questions focus primarily on the usual battery culprits, email (especially push), WiFi and Bluetooth, and App Store apps.
