April 15th, 2013 | by Gizmodo

While the news of four out of the five highest-paid execs in the US being from Apple isn't entirely surprising, it's hard not to marvel at their collective success. Which leads to the question, "Who are these gazillionaires? And what does it look like when you blend all of their faces together?" We're so glad you asked.

How the Hell Did This iPad Get Stuck Inside a Car Bumper?

April 11th, 2013 | by Gizmodo

Places you expect to see an iPad: in an Apple store, at a coffee shop, on an airplane, near your home restroom, on a nightstand, in someone's hands, you get the point. Places you don't expect to see an iPad: at an outdoor concert being used as a camera, in Bill Gates' office, inside a jail cell and FREAKING WEDGED TO A CAR BUMPER. The woman, who managed to turn on the iPad, found the owner of the iPad's contact information and returned it to him.

Report: Apple and Yahoo Are Working Together for Deeper Integration on the …

April 10th, 2013 | by Gizmodo

Apple, which hates Google, is supposedly working with Yahoo, who will take anybody's love at this point, to figure out how "Yahoo's services can play a prominent role on Apple's iPhone and iPad", according to the WSJ. This actually shouldn't be too much of a surprise as data from Yahoo Finance and weather already pops up on the iPhone. The WSJ says Yahoo has also "contemplated ways" to replace Google as the search engine for iOS but the idea "remains a long shot" because of Yahoo's partnership with Bing (Bing powers Yahoo, after all)

iPad Price Cuts Mean New Models Can’t Be Far Behind

April 4th, 2013 | by Gizmodo

It's been a scant six months since the announcement of the iPad Mini and the fairly superfluous iPad 4 , but it looks like the new generations might be on the horizon. Walmart, Best Buy, and MacMall have all slashed their prices on the devices , as good a sign as any that new ones are on the way. The trio of retailers cut prices by roughly 30 percent on Wednesday, and these "clearance" sales are a pretty good rule of thumb indicator that something new is on the way soon.

What If Buying Hard Cider Was Like Buying an Apple Product

March 28th, 2013 | by Gizmodo

Somersby Cider in the UK created a cheeky commercial that pokes fun of Apple product launches by imagining a world where buying hard cider is like getting a new iPhone. The Genius Bar would be a real bar and workers would talk about how many cores inside the apple, how many pits and how to use the "in to face" and dock the glass of hard cider.

Android Is a Free Replacement for a Feature Phone Says Apple’s Phil Schiller

March 13th, 2013 | by Gizmodo

Samsung's announcing the Galaxy S IV tomorrow but before it does, Apple wanted to take a few shots at Android. Phil Schiller, Apple's Senior Vice President of Marketing, crapped all over Android telling the WSJ that, "Android is often given a free replacement for a feature phone and the experience isn't as good as an iPhone." We already knew Apple and Google were in a war so them's fighting words about Android aren't exactly surprising. It's just interesting to see Apple try and knock Android down a few notches before the S IV's big coming out party (Schiller said that four times as many iPhone users switched from Android as opposed to to Android last quarter)
