Mike Elgan at Cult of Mac: Yes, Apple maintains a press “blacklist,” a list of people in the media who are shunned and ignored — “punished,” as it were, for “disloyalty.” “Blacklisted” reporters, editorialists and media personalities are denied access to information, products and events. Once you’re on the list, it’s almost impossible to get […]

Any regular reader of 512 will know that I’m a huge fan of Apple history. From old software to weird, now-obsolete hardware, I find the company’s past to be fascinating. Back in April, I got to visit the Apple Pop-Up Museum, getting a behind-the-scenes tour of what would prove to be a successful — yet […]
Stephen Colbert’s coverage of the Fox News Deck was amazing.
Henry Blodget: I’ve been working in and around the tech industry for about two decades, and I had never seen Apple’s headquarters. I figured it was time to change that. He seems amazed that the buildings are numbered in order. It’s sort of adorable.

While Apple has not confirmed the information, the report states that professionals […]
I’d write up the many failings of this article, but it’s just not worth it.
Two interviews with Apple executives have popped up this morning. The first, at Business Week, includes Tim Cook, Jony Ive and Craig Federighi. It paints Apple’s executives as sure-footed. Here’s a section discussing the cry of some for a cheaper iPhone: To Cook, the mobile industry doesn’t race to the bottom, it splits. One part […]
Brent Simmons steps to the chalkboard to discuss the grammatical error that drives me more insane than any other. It is shocking how many people get this consistently wrong.
Zack Whittaker: For 30 days, I ran a pre-release version of iOS 7 (which iteratively improved when newer updates were released and installed) on my iPhone 4S. While first impressions are important — these were covered in part in the review of the user interface and experience changes — the critical check is the test […]
Christine Haughney: In an interview published last week in The Daily Beast, Mr. Sulzberger (chairman of The New York Times Company) addressed rumors that a media mogul like Mayor Michael Bloomberg might purchase The Times at some point. “Imagine. People talk. What a shock,” Mr. Sulzberger is quoted as saying. “The Times,” he says, slapping […]
