The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued on Tuesday Apple Design Patent No. D661,296 which covers the asymmetrical wedge-like or so-called "teardrop" shape first introduced in the company's MacBook Air line of computers. Such patent may cause problems for Ultrabook manufactures, replicating the MacBook Air's look.
Despite the fact that the patent describes design details, it gives also schematic illustrations that provide an exhaustive look at how the MacBook Air's body differs from existing thin-and-light PCs.
Apple has begun putting up banners for iOS 6 at Moscone West, where WWDC 2012 will take place next week. It looks like the next version of Apple mobile operating system is not rumors any more - it's a fact.

Bryce Haymond of Blackpool Creative developed the high-resolution 3D renderings of the next-generation iPhone with longer 4" screen. His renderings are based on the circulating part leaks and diagrams.
In March the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) accused Apple of falsely advertising its LTE-capable iPad in the country, filling its complaint against the company.

Ahead of the annual conferences of Apple and Google, analytics firm Flurry compared developer support for Android and iOS by analyzing data collected from over 70,000 companies and 185,000 mobile apps. Its findings show that for every 10 apps that are built by developers, seven are created for iOS (the graph bar above). The company also reports that Google and Apple have a joint market cap of nearly $750 billion.
The first product on the list, part number MC414, is described, as "K31 Best" would represent a new AirPort Express. The next group of part numbers includes a pair of "D2" machines with prices above AU$2000 and AU$3000 respectively, and these parts could represent new 15-inch MacBook Pro models.
ETrade Supply, wireless parts company, posted a video comparison of the next-generation iPhone 5 back cover and the iPhone 4S one. Noteworthy, the back shell of the forthcoming iPhone is identical to a part seen in previously leaked photos.

An event that used to be lightly attended has now become the most popular developers conference in the world and sold out within 2 hours this years.
Here’s a look at the banner images of WWDC over the past 10 years.
