ABC News teases "exclusive access" following Apple's "historic announcement"

Well it's not as if we really need any more reason to get pumped up for Apple's mega event tomorrow. Not only did Eddy Cue state earlier this year that Apple's product pipeline in 2014 is the best he's seen in 25 years, but we also have this tantalizing tweet from the well-connected Jim...

No doubt you watched Nightline's special edition about Shenzhen's Foxconn factory where workers assemble iPhones, iPads and Macs. If you missed it, you can watch it online at ABC's website (US only).

Jimmy Kimmel films entire show with iSight, conspiracy theorists raise an eyebrow

I hate to be the one to point this out... but Jimmy's network, ABC, is a Disney division. Disney, in turn, owns Pixar; naturally, Pixar's chairman sits on Disney's board and happens to be the largest single shareholder in the entertainment mega-conglomerate. Yes, folks, both Mickey Mouse and Jimmy...

26% of Web video is ready for the iPad

Here's an interesting stat -- 26% of the video on the Web is iPad-ready, according to Mefeedia, a firm that supposedly monitors online video around the Internet. You may think that's low (that means 74% of the web can't be seen on the iPad), but that number actually represents a good amount of...

CBS will roll out HTML5 compliant portal for iPad

Watching TV on an iPad is a joy. Prop it up, plug in some speakers, turn it on its side and sit back. You can carry it with you as you move about and the epic battery life permits episode after episode. The only drawback right now is the lack of content (I'm looking at you, Hulu). Fortunately,...
