Apple iOS 4.3 Available Now [Download Here]

This is the real one, not the beta, not the beta after the beta. Apple has today, just a few moments ago, released iOS 4.3, the newest operating system for its mobile line of devices. This update was said to have been slated for Friday, March 11, 2011, right alongside the release of the iPad 2, but it turns out they've decided to slip this newness out the gate a tiny bit early - perhaps to stir the masses?

Apple TV to Support Gaming?

Apple TV to Support Gaming?

Strings inside Apple's iOS 4.3 beta firmware that'll be used on Apple TV have been shown to display clues leading to one possibility: the ability to play games on Apple TV without having to jailbreak first. An anonymous tipster speaking with Engadget has revealed the following references: "ATVGames" and "ATVThunder," both of them inside iOS 4.3 beta 3, as well as "com.apple.appletv.play.live.thunder" and ".play.archive.thunder." What's all that junk mean? It might be nothing of too much interest, but what these tipsters may have found are clues to a controller, a set of game leaderboards, a way to schedule games, and a storefront.

Apple TV Costs $64 to Make, According to iSuppli

Apple TV Costs $64 to Make, According to iSuppli

After the launch of a high-profile gadget, two things generally happen: first, it gets torn apart by iFixit. The second, is iSuppli takes a look at the insides in their own way, and figures out just how much it cost a company to make the thing that everyone loves (or hates). This time around it's the new Apple TV, and while the previous version may have cost an arm and a leg to manufacture, the new, smaller version is definitely a lot easier on Apple's pocket.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 39 2010

Welcome to this week's edition of the SlashGear Week in Review. I hope your week was a good one, there was a lot going on in the tech world. We learned early in the week that Nokia had a touchscreen alternative to the iPhone that was axed in 2004. That device could have made for a different landscape in the smartphone realm today had it made it to market.

Apple TV jailbreak gets video demo: Apps ahoy!

Apple TV jailbreak gets video demo: Apps ahoy!

We've been keeping a close eye on the Apple TV jailbreak situation, and with one reportedly functioning exploit based on SHAtter already tipped to be working on the set-top box, it was only a matter of time until it fell to the hacker's attempts.  The iPhone Dev Team wrapped SHAtter up in a custom build of their PwnageTool - apparently not quite ready for public release, sadly - and managed to convince the Apple TV to load a pre-jailbroken IPSW.

Why I pre-ordered the new Apple TV

Why I pre-ordered the new Apple TV

Let me just get this out of the way now: I don’t like the new Apple TV. I don’t like that it doesn’t feature on-board storage. I don’t like that I can’t buy songs on it. I don’t like that I can’t buy movies and television shows. And I don’t like that it’s a hobbled alternative to even my least useful set-top boxes.

Apple TV Redesigned, Now a Tiny Black Box with HDMI

Apple TV Redesigned, Now a Tiny Black Box with HDMI

The Apple TV revolution may have been less a revolution and more of a hobby, which has been agreed upon even by Steve Jobs himself. But, that's not stopping Jobs and company from announcing a brand new, second-generation Apple TV. But, this time around, it certainly is a revolution, even if you're just looking at it from a first-to-second generation stand point. Now smaller, a quarter of the size of the original and able to fit into the palm of your hand, Apple TV has become something completely different.

Apple Special Event on September 1st, We’ll Be There Live

It's probably not surprising at all, really. Just today, we brought you the rumor that Apple would be holding some kind of event, primarily focused on their iPod Touch, and perhaps even on Apple's upcoming revamp of AppleTV (iTV), on September 7th. That didn't last long at all, really, because Apple has just gone on their rounds and sent out the standard, yet provocative email inviting us to their brand new special event coming next week.
