EXCLUSIVE: American Crossroads, the big GOP outside group, today launches a stalking, er, bracketing operation, using paid ads to focus on President Obama’s jobs plan as he travels to promote it across the country. This evening the president is in St. Louis for two fundraisers. A new ad, “Don’t,” started last night and will run through tomorrow in St. Louis on broadcast stations plus CNN and Fox, with a total buy of $50,000 over three days. The ad features former President Clinton saying the Buffett tax “won’t solve the problem.” Crossroads plans to use similar versions of the ad to bracket other Obama appearances over the next few months. --GOTCHA!

This story was written by CNET's Josh LowensohnAt Apple's annual Worldwide Developer's Conference on Monday, the company announced refreshes to its flagship hardware and software. Included was a new version of the iPhone called the iPhone 3G S, which will be in stores later this month. This version sports a faster processor, longer battery life, video recording, and a digital compass. It also comes with higher memory capacity than previous models.In addition, Apple unveiled refreshed versions of its notebooks, which are headed to store shelves starting today. Along with the usual speed increases, the newer 13-inch and 15-inch models cost less and include SD card slots. The entire line is also using the same non-removable battery technology found in the MacBook AIR and the 17-inch model of the MacBook Pro. Along with the new hardware, the company demoed features from the next version of Mac OS X, code-named "Snow Leopard." It will available later this year as a $29 upgrade to current … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Apple Updates iPhone, Notebook Lineup
(MoneyWatch) Post updated Sept. 18, 2012, at 12:37 p.m. With Apple (AAPL) scheduled to release its iPhone 5 commercially on Friday, at least one survey suggests that a majority of iPhone 4 owners will upgrade to the new device. Although the results probably aren't statistically valid because the sample is unlikely to be representative of the country, there are many people who qualify for an upgrade from their carrier. That's math speak for saying that the iPhone 5 will be a big seller. But upgrades means there's an old phone -- likely an iPhone -- that could sit around, picking up dust (though if you're hard on phones or have been known to lose them, keeping a back-up isn't a bad idea). Instead of wasting the value that remains in the device, here are some ways you might put it to good use.iPhone 5: Not that innovative, but hot, hot, hotHow Apple could cannibalize iPhone 5 salesIn Apple Store New York, iPhone 5 line forms a week early Give it to someone you know If you use … [Read more...] about Upgrading iPhones?

Updated 10:15 PM EST NEW YORK - Apple's latest iPhone arrived to an enthusiastic response from buyers camped out at stores Friday, but many observers noted the crowds were smaller than those that gathered for previous releases. The iPhone 4S, which went on sale in seven countries, is faster and comes with better software and an improved camera. Steve Wozniak, who created Apple with Steve Jobs in a Silicon Valley garage in 1976, was first in line at a store in Los Gatos, Calif. "The long wait begins. I'm first in line. The guy ahead was on the wrong side and he's pissed," Wozniak tweeted earlier Thursday. CNET live blog: iPhone 4S goes on sale Wozniak got in line at the California store even though he already had two new phones on the way. He told television station NBC11 on Thursday that while he waited for the store's opening Friday morning, he planned on getting caught up on his email and chatting with fans. But with the fifth unveiling of its popular iPhone, Apple is finding it … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo iPhone 4S hits stores; Wozniak first in line
Rumor surround Apple's next iPhone are flowing in ahead of the tech giant's imminent announcement of its new flagship smartphone. A tweet from a Fox News reporter claims that new Apple silicon rumored to land in the iPhone 5S is "very fast," while an Apple-centric blog says it will be 64-bit -- echoing a previous rumor. Clayton Morris tweeted Sunday that Apple's next-generation A7 chip "is running at about 31 [percent] faster than A6. I'm hearing it's very fast." The iPhone 5 and iPad 4 are currently powered by an A6 chip. 9to5Mac added to Morris' tweet by claiming that some A7 prototypes are 64-bit. The 64-bit A7 speculation first popped up about ten days ago from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. If accurate, this is significant, as Apple's previous A series processors and other ARM chips from other suppliers, like Qualcomm, are 32-bit. Generally, 64-bit chips can address more memory and, thus, can be better at running more demanding software. 9to5Mac speculates that a … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Apple’s next iPhone rumored to have “very fast” A7 chip
The mixture of new software and hardware improvements is enough to make apps running on the iPhone 5S more crash-prone than those on other iPhone models. Apps running on the iPhone 5S crash twice as often as those available on the iPhone 5 or iPhone 5C, data from mobile app analytics company Crittercism shows. The information, which was presented to All Things Digital and published on Friday, comes from analyzing "hundreds of millions of apps," according to the tech site. The reason for the increased crash instances might actually be a hardware problem. Although app developers were able to fix iOS 7 bugs for months while the software was in testing, thus limiting crashes on the iPhone 5 and nearly identical iPhone 5C, they weren't made aware of the iPhone 5S' 64-bit architecture or its M7 coprocessor until the device was unveiled. Those app developers are now trying to catch up. Still, Crittercism doesn't anticipate the higher crash rate to last forever. In an interview with All Things … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Apps on iPhone 5S more crash-prone than other models
Apple quietly spelt the end of two of its most popular devices at its Worldwide Developer's Conference on Monday night. The company announced the latest version of its mobile operating system, iOS 11, at the annual event, introducing a new phone-to-phone payment method and a safe driving mode. It also features a tweaked design for the iPad that looks more like the Mac operating system. But iOS 11 comes with a caveat. It only works on 64-bit devices, meaning that older Apple products will not be able to upgrade to the new system, rendering them obsolete. Affected devices include the iPhone 5, released in 2012, and the iPhone 5c, released in 2013. These phones won't receive security updates and...

Last fall, Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) introduced three new flagship iPhone models: iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were direct successors to the prior-generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, while the iPhone X was an ultra-premium device with a commensurately high price tag. All three of these smartphones came in the same two storage configurations: 64 GB for the entry-level models and 256 GB for the higher-end versions. The 256 GB option for each device cost $150 more than its 64 GB counterpart. Image source: Apple. In the coming iPhone product cycle, I expect that Apple will offer variants of its premium iPhone X-series devices with an even bigger 512 GB storage configuration -- a configuration that was previously rumored for the current iPhone X lineup but ultimately didn't materialize last year. Indeed, with key mobile NAND flash manufacturer Samsung (NASDAQOTH: SSNLF) having announced its own 512GB mobile NAND solution and as other NAND … [Read more...] about Why Apple Might Introduce a 512 GB Storage Option for 2018 iPhone X Models
