The Ads campaign started by Apple – ‘Get a Mac’ charmed a lot of users. The Ads were a response to PC’s and showed why a Mac is better than a PC. It encouraged users to Get a Mac instead of a PC as Mac’s are faster, runs Microsoft Office and Windows, do not get viruses, does not crash or give headaches. Justin Long, who plays Mac in the Get a Mac Ads has reportedly told ‘The Onion’ that these hilarious, witty and ingenious Ads might be done. Now, Apple has also removed these Ads from the website and instead put up “Why You’ll love a Mac”.
Our Budapest correspondent overheard a story of Apple putting its store in the city. On random checking some of the residents of the city also confirmed hearing about it in the local media.
Well, that was sufficient for us to go paparazzi hunting. After all, an Apple store is nothing less than a celebrity and had to be traced out.
Our hunt ended up in Andrassy Street of Budapest. Our first check led us to a Apple re-seller, who appeared to be closing down. We present what we saw.
Apple loves to keep information about their upcoming devices or products a secret. The highly secretive environment which Apple maintains appears to be crumbling. Recently, we had some iPhone 4G leaks and now we have an iPod touch leak.
The same Vietnamese site which gave us a possible sneak peek at iPhone 4G is back with a new device which seems to be an iPod touch prototype. This iPod touch prototype has a 2 Megapixel camera and 64GB of memory. This thing sure does look like an iPod touch and an iPod touch with a camera was bound to come.
Standard Chartered is now giving its employees an option to choose between Blackberry and iPhone.
The bank earlier gave all its employees a Blackberry, but now they do have a choice to make. This move would make a lot of bankers Apple customers and gives the iPhone a larger market share. “It’s a group-wide initiative involving wholesale and consumer banks globally” said a spokeswoman for Standard Chartered.
Many other banks globally such as HSBC and Morgan Stanley have also repeatedly resisted Blackberry. With Unified Mailbox coming to iPhone with iPhone OS 4.0, it would definitely attract a lot of users and force some to make the switch.
Well if this trend catches up on an exponential rate and spreads across other sectors, Apple would be getting what it is aiming at – capturing the RIM market.
Apple Inc, is a company that loves to brag about numbers and sure they should. Their numbers being so very gigantic. Steve Jobs always addresses the crowd by saying – “Thanks for coming today. We have some updates for you”.
The updates which would follow would be some huge number of iPad’s sold or the freaking number of Apps sold or something.
So how does Apple manage to sell these products in such overwhelming numbers? Surely, they make some great products and very innovative ones but one small reason is the way they market it.
Till date, Tweetie was the reigning champion and was the best available Twitter client for the iPhone and iPod touch. Tweetie was developed by atebits and was used by millions. Due to its superb functionality, extraordinary features and elegant looks, it was acquired by Twitter itself.
Enough said about Tweetie. It seems that even the official Twitter App is going to have some competition with Osfoora, a new Twitter client for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. A strange name but it wins the competitive game. It is available for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch and at first sight, it looks awesome.

Adobe has put up a new banner advertisement on The New York Times and some other websites in response to Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs thoughts on their Flash.
Mmm! The battle is now warming up.
The Ads are developed on Flash (OfCourse) and this is Adobe’s aggressive and fierce response to Apple and their closed system (as Adobe says). Mr. Jobs posted a memo on Apple’s website through which he explained to consumers and critics why Apple does not allow Flash on their devices.
