ContactKeeper isn't the sleekest, most stylish contact manager we've seen, but as a basic, easy-to-use program for keeping contacts up to date and in one place, it certainly fills the bill.
ContactKeeper's interface is sparse, but in a functional way. Intuitive buttons run across the top of the window for adding, opening, editing, and removing new contacts. Adding a contact is as easy as clicking the Add button and entering the name, address, date of birth, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and important notes for each new contact. Each new entry's details display clearly on the right … Read more
Netflix is cruising. The cable guys are catching on. Wal-Mart just rumbled in.
The Web's video-on-demand sector is filling up fast with some serious heavyweights. If Apple wants to make a mark in digital video that even vaguely resembles the one it made in music, perhaps the company should start treating Apple TV as more than just a "hobby." That's Apple's attitude toward the streaming-media device, said Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook, who spoke at a conference in San Francisco on Tuesday.
This doesn't seem to be a good time to toy with online … Read more
Consumers will be able to buy the iPad at a variety of locations besides Apple's retail store, Apple's chief operating officer said Tuesday.
The comments came during Tim Cook's speech at the Goldman Sachs annual tech conference in San Francisco. In addition to the obvious Apple retail stores, consumers will be able to purchase the iPad from Apple directly and from "partners like Best Buy," according to AppleInsider.
Cook didn't mention whether AT&T would be selling the device in its retail locations, even though it did sell the iPhone models. One reason … Read more
Online document host DocStoc launched its DocStore online marketplace a little less than a year ago, and since then it's grown to more than 1 million downloads a month. However, up until now it's only allowed a handful of hand-picked providers to sell their wares on its site. That's changing with a new service that will let just about anyone with what the company deems to be a "professional document" sell their stuff.
In order to be a part of it, people with documents to sell--such as templates for housing leases, business contracts, letters of … Read more
Late last week, Apple notified developer Chillifresh that its Wobble iBoobs application was being removed from the App Store due to its "overtly sexual" nature. Since then, it appears that Apple has gone on a rampage of sex-oriented app removals.
Chillifresh claimed in a Saturday post that a discussion with Apple revealed that more than 5,000 apps have been affected by its new App Store content policy. Apple said the change was triggered by numerous customer complaints, according to Chillifresh.
"Whenever we receive customer complaints about objectionable content, we review them," Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller … Read more
Last week, Apple announced that iPhone OS developers can distribute their apps to customers in 13 more countries than were previously allowed via the iTunes App Store. This is a boon for developers, increasing the App Store's reach from 77 countries up to 90.
The new countries are:Armenia Botswana Bulgaria Jordan Kenya Macedonia Madagascar Mali Mauritius Niger Senegal Tunisia Uganda
Developers must manually log in to iTunes Connect to view and update the countries where their apps are available for sale.
The officiant wore a black turtleneck. The rings were brought in attached to a first-generation iPod. And the bride and groom both said iDo. What more could you hope for from an Apple store wedding?
Josh and Ting Li first met at an Apple store, and they could think of no place better to affirm their eternal devotion than between rows of MacBooks.
Apple didn't officially sanction the event, which took place on Valentine's Day at the flagship Fifth Avenue location in New York, so they took the good ol' fashioned flash-mob route. As Josh said to Entertainment Weekly: … Read more
By now you may have heard the news: Apple appears to be waging a war on smut, having pulled at least some sex-themed apps from the App Store.
Plenty of others remain--but for how long? In a letter received by at least one developer (as reported by TechCrunch), the company discussed plans to "remove any overtly sexual content from the App Store."
For the moment, let's overlook the frequently puzzling and often arbitrary decisions Apple makes when it comes to app approval--and removal.
Apple may be in the process of removing "overtly sexual" content from its App Store, according to a TechCrunch report.
The developer behind "Wobble iBoobs," an adult-themed application, told TechCrunch that his application has been taken down. Apple reportedly told the developer in a letter that the decision to remove the app is part of a larger plan to remove sexual content from the store.
"Your application, Wobble iBoobs (Premium Uncensored), contains content that we had originally believed to be suitable for distribution," Apple's letter to the developer read, according to TechCrunch. "… Read more
