We witnessed the iPhone 4G roar take place and a few days back even saw a white iPhone prototype appear on several websites. The leaks appear to be coming from Apple’s manufacturing unit in China.
These facts already make us somewhat sure that Apple is going to announce its iPhone 4G at Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), to be held from June 7-11 at San Francisco. Need some more proof? Walmart has reduced the price of iPhone 3GS to $97. Looks like a clearance sale to make way for the new product. The 100$ price drop almost confirms the arrival of an iPhone from Apple.
Hope it will be as magical as the iPad.
Bill Gates, redefined technology in the early days of IT and even changed the rules of doing business. Not surprisingly, he became the richest man in the world. Those were the days of Windows and Microsoft was in the limelight. Microsoft’s competitors could at best only dream of the good days ahead hoping against hope – except of course Apple.
Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO, brought in the much needed fresh air. He has revolutionized the world by introducing the iPhone in 2007 and then redefining computing in 2010 with the iPad.

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.
