AT&T Working On Massive Upgrade For New iPhone In June


  Apple Insider has posted that a vendor in "the know" has brought to our attention that AT&T is working on a major upgrade to their data network prior to the new iPhone hardware rumored to be arriving in June. AT&T has had their network stressed greatly due to the iPhone data traffic since the iPhone 3G.  The iPhone accounts for about two thirds of all of AT&T’s data consumption and has caused numerous outages and slow downs in the past.  If the new iPhone does include a video camera with upload capability as we suspect, AT&T will certainly need such bandwidth increases to meet demand.  It will be interesting to see if there is real world speed increases that we iPhone users will see.  At this point we can only hold out and anticipate what Apple has for us in June.

Apple Finally Working With Adobe For Flash on The iPhone & iPod Touch


  At long last we have confirmation that Apple finally sees that one major deterring factor for their iPhone is the lack of Adobe’s Flash.  Apple has long claimed "the web in your pocket", which is only partially true, because half of the web uses flash to play media.  


Steve Jobs has said that Flash is too much for a mobile processor and Flash Lite does not deliver enough to satisfy the consumer.  Adobe’s Chief, Shantanu Narayen was recently quoted in an interview saying:

Apple To Attend CES 2010


  As anyone who follows Apple news knows, Apple has left MacWorld for good.  Although still technically a rumor, many people have been confirming that Apple will be moving to CES in 2010.  This may sound bad to the many who attend MacWorld, but is a great change to bring two separate shows to one venue.  Instead of having to choose or rush from one to another, everyone can now go to Las Vegas for CES instead.  The interesting part is Apple is saying January is not an idea product announcement time for their current plans. They may have said this just to make MacWorld feel better about the loss of Apple.  Either way this should turn out to be an interesting year.

iTunes 8 Released Early and Then Removed?


  Apple Insider is reporting that they received a tip that iTunes 8 was released and then pulled tonight.  Apparently the "download now" button appeared in the middle of the screen and a few lucky people were able to grab it.  The button has since disappeared from the page. The people who did claim to grab it will not release details to avoid the force of Apple coming upon them. Lets hope someone lets us know so we can enjoy the rumors until Tuesday.


UPDATE:  apparently this is a hoax says Gizmodo.  The person who caught this picture only had iTunes 6 and was prompted for iTunes 7 to be downloaded.
