Rumours abound regarding the new look iPod Nano and Gizmodo is carrying a reasonably good looking picture although there’s some concerns over whether it’s quite as nano as its predecessors. Engadget is also carrying some rather more colourful images that, in my opinion, don’t do the design anywhere near as much justice. Of course, there’s also the very real possibility that the images are completely fake and the best reason readers seem to be able to give for that view is the mini USB that is unlikely to ever grace...

Just when you think you’ve heard absolutely everything you possibly could have regarding the iPhone 3G, Apple goes and throws in something so incredibly bizarre that you have to sit up and listen even if you’re attempting to don the face of one who doesn’t care. The latest bizarre move, though, is actually by the Polish arm of Orange, who are hiring actors to recreate the cues that we witnessed on our launch day. The iPhone 3G is set to launch in another 20 countries and Orange has made the bold (or just plain odd) move...

The personal audio devices are furthering their march on taking over the world. This time, it’s the turn of the mischievous iPod Nano and they’re taking it to the next level. A number of the popular Apple audio players have willingly burst into flames, or at least they’ve overheated to the point of breaking and it’s a problem that has been recognised by the manufacturers. To be fair, the overheating is actually quite serious and it has scorched paper that has been left nearby. It is believed that the problem is...

World of Warcraft is, to everybody, more than just a game; it’s a lifestyle. Those that love it will tell you that it’s an online social phenomenon bringing like minded people from all over the world together. Those that don’t like it or haven’t played it will undoubtedly tell you something a little different about the type of people that play it. Well a small application type addition to World or Warcraft, or WoW, can now be downloaded to your mobile phone so you don’t have to let a little thing like no access...

We tried our best to let the iPhone 3G launch with only the most essential pieces covering the “momentous” event because the original iPhone was so heavily swathed in media mayhem that it became almost unbearable. In all honesty, a browse around a few gadget and technology sites for most of the last week or so has shown that this launch was equally annoying. However, we felt it was about time we started to look at a few of the applications that have also been launched. We’re starting with the G-Park, which enables you to basically...

The 3G iPhone goes on sale tomorrow morning and despite our all round best efforts it has become pretty much impossible to pass these events without making a comment or two. The first iPhone was admittedly brilliant and did a lot for mobile phone consumers, but it certainly wasn’t without its issues. However, it got more publicity and media time than Amy Winehouse’s latest drug fuelled antics (whatever they may be when you’re reading this). In an almost carbon copy version of that release (the original iPhone not Amy...

Just when you imagine that you’ve covered every conceivable story regarding the iPhone 3G, a load more hits you in the face. Fortunately, there are at least a couple of reports to condense into one post for you, today, and then hopefully we’ll pretty much be done with it. At least, until it’s released and a review needs to be written. The phone is released this Friday at 8:02 am (why 8:02 you ask? Because the phone is only available through O2 and that’s some easy branding). Pre-orders are being taken as we speak…...

Apple is no stranger to popular products recently. Love it or loathe it it’s impossible to argue that the iPod hasn’t had a significant impact on personal audio devices and in culture in general. The iPhone, too, became a success of near monolithic proportions despite its detractors. The MacBook Air, while not perhaps as ubiquitous as the other two, made waves when it was released – or rather, it didn’t make waves. The thing is impossibly light and started a whole generation of ultra portable, ultra light notebook computers. Good...

Apple claims that its iTunes music download service has bagged more than 5 billion downloads since its inception. The news follows recent announcements that iTunes movies has opened in the UK and is now serving 50,000 movie downloads every day and that iTunes has overtaken Wal-mart as the largest music donwload service in the US. Itunes offers both DRM (Digital Rights Management) protected tracks and non-DRM tracks and only recently reported that it was responsible for 3 billion downloads. 10 months ago, Apple claimed the significant 3...

It’s no surprise to learn that a 3G version of the iPhone is set to be launched by Apple (although it does give us a good reason to dust off the iPhone image again), with the vast majority of people predicting this would be one of the announcements made during the WWDC. Steve Jobs did, however, confirm the fact that It would support 3G networks and would also have GPS compatibility. Perhaps a little more surprising, and certainly welcome, is the fact that the next generation of the most talked about smartphone will cost just $199,...
