A rare Apple computer built by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak has been sold for $375,000 (£285,000) at an auction in Boston. A working version of the Apple-1, which first went on sale in 1976 for $666.66 as the company’s first product, was sold at the RR Auction in the US on Tuesday. The co-founders made 200 Apple-1 computers. The Apple-1 was first modelled as a circuit board to be built on by computer enthusiasts, but later was developed to become one of the world’s first “personal” computers that could be used by consumers without any soldering input. The version sold at the auction was restored to full functionality in June 2018 by Corey Cohen, an Apple-1 expert. “This is the machine that launched...

An Australian teenager reportedly hacked into the Apple corporate computer network and has gained access to highly classified data. The boy has confessed to a Children's Court in Melbourne that he gained illegal entry into Apple mainframe network several times for the past one year. He is said to have downloaded more than 90GB of important Apple internal files and customer account details. The boy is said to have created virtual computer tunnels with the help of online bypassing techniques and hacking software on his laptop and managed to break the firewall of Apple computer network. After the company got to know about the breach, it filed a complaint with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The information was forwarded to the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and a probe led to the arrest of the hacker. During the raid, two laptops, a hardware and a mobile were confiscated and the hacked 90GB data was found stored in one of the seized laptop's folders titled 'hacky hack hack', … [Read more...] about Australian schoolboy hacks Apple computer network to get 90 GB of sensitive data
Yesterday, we saw Apple's earnings for their amazing third quarter and rightly so, everyone was amazed. But, in breaking down the numbers, we can see the continuing trend that the computer company is less and less and Apple is more and more a mobile company. The Q3 numbers now show that 68% of Apple's revenue comes from iPhone and iPad sales, so let's look into those numbers a little more. Leading the chargeIt's no surprise that mobile has been exploding for the last few years, and Apple has been leading the charge since the introduction of the iPhone back in 2007. Now, you can argue all you want about whether iOS is the best mobile platform, or whether or not Apple "stole" ideas from those that came before them, but, those arguments are basically pointless. Which mobile OS is the best is purely subjective and dependent on your needs and preferences. If your friends and family are spread around the world and all have BlackBerries, you'll probably get that for BBM. If you are deep … [Read more...] about Will mobile kill Apple computers?

Apple steals ideas and call them revolutionary but when an idea is stolen from apple, someone is getting a lawsuit. Everyone wanted a touchscreen phone before the iPhone, the problem was that there were a lot and the os's sucks bawls. Apple may be leading the charge but unless they start spending less time in court and more time innovating, … [Read more...] about Comments for : Will mobile kill Apple computers?
