Apple Store down: new iMacs and MacBooks incoming? Update: Nope, nothing new

Apple Store down: new iMacs and MacBooks incoming? Update: Nope, nothing new

Palm webOS 1.2.0 update arrives for Pre

Palm webOS 1.2.0 update arrives for Pre

Palm have finally pushed out their latest update for the Palm Pre, webOS 1.2.0, a 79MB over-the-air firmware install that adds support for paid apps, Amazon MP3 downloads while on a mobile network (rather than WiFi) and cut/copy/paste support of text in the web browser.  There's also a new gesture - swiping down from the top of the screen toward the bottom - which opens the application/connection menu, together with music playback controls on the lock screen.
