On Friday, Apple Inc. CEO Tim Cook issued an apology in response to constant complaints on the iOS 6 Maps application. Cook wrote:
At Apple, we strive to make world-class products that deliver the best experience possible to our customers. With the launch of our new Maps last week, we fell short on this commitment. We are extremely sorry for the frustration this has caused our customers and we are doing everything we can to make Maps better.
Since the release of the original iPhone, in July 2007, Apple used Google Maps for the Maps application found on iOS (then called iPhone OS). However,...

After months of rumors and leaked details, Apple has finally announced the iPhone 5 at its media event on Wednesday, September 12, 2012. The iPhone 5 release comes just over 11 months after the iPhone 4S was released.
Apple's new iPhone comes with a vast number of new features that make it worthy of Apple's new slogan, "The biggest thing to happen to iPhone since iPhone" We've made a quick run through of the iPhone 5's coolest features.
Since the release of the original iPhone in 2007, Apple has been using a 3.5-inch display for both the iPhone and iPod touch....
Are you tired of always having to open Chrome or Safari then log in to WPAdmin and then write your articles on WordPress? Because this author is extremely tired of having to go through so much to just post a darned article for y'all to enjoy. That's why I tried out MarsEdit 3 on my Mac.
There are a lot of WordPress programs available for Windows but developers aren't quite as liberal with creating Mac Apps that let you publish straight from your desktop. After a hefty amount of searching, we were finally able to find MarsEdit 3, a Wordpress publishing platform for OS X.
Download and Installation
Conspiracy theories galore! With one of Mountain Lion's coolest features being AirPlay functionality on Macs, many excited customers downloaded Mountain Lion expecting to connect their Mac to their external display wirelessly, via their WiFi connection and 2nd/3rd generation AppleTV.
However, Apple is only making this available to certain Macs. Only Macs released in 2011 or later have the ability to stream movies and videos to their AppleTV sets via AirPlay.
Customers started calling foul within hours of OS X Mountain Lion's release on the Mac App Store on July 25th. The general...
Where is OS X Mountain Lion Stored on Hard Drive? Where does the Mac App Store download Mountain Lion?
There's a lot of confusion related to where OS X Mountain Lion is stored on your Hard Drive after it is downloaded from the Mac App Store.
The Mac App Store treats the OS X Mountain Lion Installer as a Application. Therefore, you can always find it in your Applications file.
But it's not there!
If you already downloaded Mountain Lion and installed it then the installer automatically deleted itself at the end of the installation. Apple likely did this in order to preserve space on your...
We recently had a reader ask us. "Can my Mac use Airplay?" and thought that many of you may be wondering the same thing.
One of the coolest features of Mountain Lion is the fact that certain Macs can now utilize AirPlay to wirelessly "project" what's on your display to your Apple TV. This is actually pretty nice because it reduces the headache of having to find a MiniDP to HDMI adapter to connect your Mac to a TV.
Unfortunately, not all Macs running Mountain Lion will be able to use this cool new function.
We decided to do a little digging and found this from Apple's website.
With the imminence of the cloud and the ability to just download Mountain Lion from the Mac App Store at any time - at first, there seems to be no use for this little trick. However, when your hard drive has failed or you need to do a quick reinstall of your operating system, you may not have ready access to the internet. Even if you do have access to the internet only 2011 (and newer) Macs have the ability to download OS X (Mountain) Lion directly from the Mac App Store without a fully functioning operating system.
Having the Mountain Lion on a USB Flash Drive (or a partition on a hard drive)...
In Apple's quarterly conference call today, Tim Cook announced that Mountain Lion will be released tomorrow on the Mac App Store for the low price of $19.99. Mountain Lion offers enhanced functions and capabilities to Apple's laptop and desktop hardware, including the iMac, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air. The $19.99 price point is also significantly lower than previous iterations of OS X updates. The Mountain Lion release date will be July 25, 2012.
OS X Lion was released just over a year ago on July 20, 2011. OS X Lion was released exclusive to the Mac App Store for $29.99 but customers...
Coming as an inevitable progression, Tiny Wings is finally available as a native iPad App! The original, hit iPhone App went through the roof in sales and popularity but there wasn't yet an iPad app - until just a few days ago.
The breakthrough iPhone app now uses the wonderful screen real estate of the New iPad and provides a number of features over its iPhone companion.
In retrospect, the theme and audio selections on Tiny Wings HD reminds me of Yoshi's Island from the GameBoy Advance and Nintendo DS. With a similarly innocent theme and plot line - there are some distinct...
Apple released the very popular Smart Cover, side by side with the iPad 2. Being a wonderful accessory to keep your iPad 2's beautiful screen protected - the Smart Cover undoubtedly became one of the most popular accessories for the iPad 2.
Fast forward to the New iPad (often incorrectly called the iPad 3) and the Smart Cover's legitimacy as a top iPad accessory was still second to few others. The Leather and Polyurethane iPad display covers definitely complimented the iPad well.
Then came WWDC 2012. While not nearly as exciting to the likes of Mountain Lion or the Retina MacBook Pro - the iPad...
