Apple Settles On Case: Black-To-White iPhone 4 Conversion

I’m sure most of you remember Steve Wozniak’s White iPhone 4. If so, then you remember that it was done by some kid who was running a black-to-white iPhone 4 conversion service. And Steve Wozniak admitted to hiring Fei Lam (no relation to Gizmodo’s Editor Brian Lam), a New York teenager who racked up $130,000 with his iPhone conversion business. Of course, as soon as the story started appearing on major news stations, Apple sent its legal (and loyal) minions after Fei, and almost instantly, he shut down his website,, and slipped under the radar. MacRumors recently discovered that

Amazon Launches Their Mac “App” Store

Today, we’ve got some interesting news that relates to the Goliath of the online book-world, Amazon –  they recently announced their new Mac Download Store.  While customers have always been able to download software from Amazon for PC, they have introduced a new line of software for OS X in hopes of competing with the Mac App Store.  Major titles include Microsoft Office, Inuit Quicken, Roxio’s Toast and a ton of games.

The New iPhone 4S/5 Might Be Announced At WWDC 2011

I’m sure we can all agree that the general consensus lately has been that the next-gen iPhone won’t make an appearance until fall of this year (even though we at BestTechInfo never believed it for a second) – according to ElectricPig, Apple’s UK PR department is trying to round up UK-based journalists in hopes of convincing them to attend WWDC 2011. A source tells us that Apple’s UK iPhone PR team is approaching journalists from major publications to fly out to the event in San Francisco next month. The obvious conclusion would be that Apple is announcing a new iPhone. Or rather,

iPhone 3GS Users Won’t Be Able To Update To iOS 5

With all of the issues that the iOS 4 brought to the iPhone 3GS (random reboots, poor battery life, slower performance and an overall sluggish UI), it was pretty clear that the iPhone 3GS would soon stop receiving updates from Apple – thus rendering the phone outdated.

Early this morning, P0sixninja, one of the key members to the Chronic Dev Team and apparently the one in charge of the iPad 2 Jailbreak shared something pretty interesting with us on Twitter:

State of the Chronic: Greenpois0n 4.3.3 Jailbreak Update

Yesterday, the Chronic Dev Team released an official statement going over some general questions, and it includes the iPad 2 Jailbreak as well as an interesting comment about 4.3.3 support. Here is their full statement, which was released on their official website: When there isn’t one cohesive overall goal for a post, it is always difficult to figure out how to start it, hence this introduction. This post is going to serve as being a “state of the union” kind of post, covering a few different topics/questions that have been common inquiries. I have one request if you are going to

Dell’s “Thinnest” Laptop Isn’t Even As Thin As The MacBook Pro

We were expecting a MacBook Air-like device.  It turns out Dell’s new product, dubbed “Thinnest 15-inch PC on the planet” isn’t thinner than the 15-inch MacBook Pro I gave up a year ago for an Air.  That’s the same one that came out with the Unibody manufacturing process in October 2008. Dell’s 15-inch XPS 15z is .97 inches thick compared to the MacBook Pro’s .95 inches (it looks like my initial prediction was correct).  It does weigh in at slightly less than the MacBook Pro (which is due for an update soon as well).
