UK government denied Apple's Steve Jobs knighthood in 2009



knighted

The Telegraph reports that Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs was close to being knighted for his services to technology by the Queen of the United Kingdom in 2009. Unfortunately or fortunately for Jobs, his nomination was blocked by Gordon Brown, who served as Prime Minister at the time, because the Apple co-founder apparently turned down an invitation to speak at a Labour Party conference. Apple was aware of the proposal that till that moment reached the final stage of approval.

"The former MP was told by Downing Street that the decision was related to a failed attempt to attract Mr. Jobs to Labour's annual conference," the report said. "Given his status as a superstar of business and technology, such an appearance would have been viewed as a coup for Mr. Brown."

Production issues with new thin display could limit Apple's initial iPad 2 supply



ipad supply

One Wall Street analyst said that Apple’s iPad 2 reportedly may be affected by production difficulties due to some problems with the new ultra-thin glass screen that could result in a limited supply at launch. Although, Apple is not expected to experience delays in launching the iPad 2.

"It appears that Apple is once again pushing the technology envelope by making the device far thinner than the original iPad, and the iPad 2's ultra-thin glass screen is generating yield issues," the analyst wrote. "This appears to be more of a process problem as opposed to a technology problem, and we wouldn't be surprised to see volumes ramp fairly quickly as the process improves."

The new iPad is expected to have a forward-facing camera for FaceTime video chat, faster processor and more RAM, support for both GSM and CDMA wireless technology.

iPhone 4 iOS 4.2.1 unlock news



unlock

iPhone hacker MuscluNerd tweeted some recent news regarding iPhone iOS 4.2.1 unlock.

Current i4 unlock goal includes til 04.10.01 (4.3b3). Very weird situation...vuln cmds are there, trying to invoke them!

ironically, the i4 unlock search has yielded 05.14 & 05.15 unlock 3G/3GS vectors... but i4 is 1st priority

Not much, but we see that the work is in progress. They have found necessary vulnerabilities and their target is even higher - iOS 4.3 (baseband 04.10.01). As a background effect they also might be able to unlock 05.14 and 05.15 basebands, so there might be a reason right now not to update baseband to version 06.15.

Apple's Jonathan Ive Considering Moving Back to England



ive

Jonathan Ive, designer of many Apple’s iconic products, is said to want to spend more time in England. Ive reportedly has proposed to commute from Somerset, but Apple's board seems unwilling.

A friend of the family told The Sunday Times: 'Unfortunately he is just too valuable to Apple and they told him in no uncertain terms that if he headed back to England he would not be able to sustain his position with them.'

Ive joined Apple in 1992 and has been responsible for the design of the unibody MacBook Pro, iPod, iPhone and iPad and rose to become the company's senior vice president of product design.
