iPod Classic selling online secondhand for up to $1,000

This was the year that Apple finally discontinued the iPod Classic, its traditional mp3 player that featured the iconic click-wheel we were all familiar with before touchscreens.

FCC: Apple’s Activation Lock works really well

Smartphone theft is getting worse, according to a new report from the FCC. In 2012, about 1.6 million phones were stolen. 2013 brought 3.1 million devices being stolen. San Francisco, a forward-facing tech haven, had the worst smartphone theft statistics, where 59% of all robberies included perpetrators taking their victim’s smartphone.

Apple DRM trial now hinges on mystery iPod as plaintiff dismissed

Outrage by proxy, maybe? A plaintiff in the Apple DRM lawsuit was withdrawn by their attorney today after it was discovered neither of the two plaintiffs named in the suit actually had an iPod that deleted music.

Celebrating the legacy of Apple, and particularly the Apple I and II, Jobs' first partner in crime, Steve Wozniak, gives a bit of insight into the young Steve Jobs back in the 1970's, showing how human the man in the turtleneck was.
