There will be no MacTouch at Macworld 2008

There will be no MacTouch at Macworld 2008
As many of you know, I like to try and bring the hype machine down a notch here at Apple Gazette. I’m excited about Macworld – we all are – but there are times when our excitement and imagination get the better of us. I know, I’m guilty of it too. I’ve fallen victim to Read more…

Want a “Market Research” and AppleTV Rant 2 in 1? YOU GOT IT!

Want a "Market Research" and AppleTV Rant 2 in 1? YOU GOT IT!
Forrest Research, who seem to be riding that “Apple headline high” that most of these research groups go through from time to time, is back again telling us all how much of a failure the AppleTV is. They have number estimates, and blah, blah, blah… Does this “research group” crap get under your skin as Read more…

Does Apple need NBC back?

Does Apple need NBC back?
Forrester Research firm analyst James McQuivey thinks that Apple is on the losing end of the NBC/Apple troubles, and that they need NBC back – FAST. “Don’t let the Macgeeks posting angry blogs against NBC fool you,” McQuivey’s report reads, “The loser here is Apple, which relies on NBC Universal to deliver 30 [percent] of Read more…

Ars Technica and other sites are reporting that things are about to change in the iTunes Movie Store. Studios such as 20th Century Fox have convinced Apple to pay a wholesale price of $15 per movie for their titles.

If Apple did make an iTablet – who would use it?

If Apple did make an iTablet - who would use it?
It’s been a while since we’ve had any ridiculous Apple rumors, but Loop Rumors fixed that for us last Thursday with their post about a top secret Apple project called “iTablet”. You can see an “artists rendering” of the device above, but really there’s not much to “render” with this particular rumored device. It’s described Read more…

Malcor was a Hoax – Did the Mac Heist team go too far?

Malcor was a Hoax - Did the Mac Heist team go too far?
So, there was this hacker named Malcor that was hijacking Apple websites that were too “fanboi”. (Yeah, I can’t believe I just spelled it that way either.) It got the digg community all a twitter, and it caused quite a stir in the Apple online community. It’s the kind of thing that gets people riled Read more…

Is a 24 hour Apple news network necessary?

Is a 24 hour Apple news network necessary?
The Digital Lifestyle network went live yesterday. Not a bad name for a Tech Metwork. Here’s the thing, though, they’re not billing themselves as a Tech Network. They’re billing themselves as a 24 hour Apple News Network. Soak that in for a minute. A 24 hour Apple News Network. Sometimes I have a hard time Read more…

Video: What the iPhone SHOULD look like this time next year

This (presumably hacked) iPhone has multiple pages of icons, and features Leopard-like Stacks as well. This, to me, is exactly where we should be seeing the iPhone going after Apple releases the SDK for it early next year. Right now it’s complete speculation on just how the SDK will work, and if everyone will be Read more…

Does OS X NEED to be a hardcore gaming Platform?

Does OS X NEED to be a hardcore gaming Platform?
Earlier today I wrote about the whole Bungie situation that happened over the weekend. There was also another video game related Apple article that made the rounds this weekend. It stated that Apple didn’t want to pay Valve $1 million dollars to port Half-Life to the Mac. There is an interesting discussion on Digg (as Read more…
