  1. Apple’s Tim Cook Proclaims He’s “Proud to Be Gay,” Is the First Openly Gay Fortune 500 CEO/Our Hero

    Today in good news:

    Apple CEO Tim Cook hasn't been hiding his sexuality in his personal or business life, but he's never publicly acknowledged it—until now. In a personal essay published today by BusinessWeek, Cook says he's "proud to be gay," and we're pretty proud of him, too.

  2. Move Over, Obama — Who We’re Really Excited To See at the State of the Union

    Between a still flagging economy, gun violence that seems more and more out of control, and hostile foreign powers edging closer to becoming nuclear threats, President Obama has a lot of ground to cover in his State of the Union address later this evening. But it's not like he's going to be the only important person on hand, and we're going to be on the lookout for a couple of celebrity guests in particular at tonight's State of the Union, including NASA's own Mohawk Guy.

  3. Rumor: Apple Could Have a Cheaper iPhone in the Works

    The Apple iPhones, since its launch, have been at the high end of the smartphone price range. Anyone hoping for a break in price has been relegated to buying previous versions, but there's a rumor going around that says that won't be the case for much longer. Apple may be releasing a cheaper version of the iPhone concurrently with the flagship model, similar to how they recently launched the iPad mini as a more affordable alternative to the full-sized version. This is just a rumor, and considering it's CES week, we'll probably be seeing a lot more of those.

  6. Guess What? Apple’s Maps Aren’t “The Most Powerful” Anymore

    Hot off the heels of Apple CEO Tim Cook's sheepish apology to consumers over their lackluster new Maps app, Apple has retracted one of its boldest statements about the highly-criticized service. Until yesterday, Apple's description of Maps on their website called it "the most beautiful, powerful mapping service ever." That sentence, which would now seem especially foolish in light of Mr. Cook's statement, has since been retracted and replaced.

  7. Apple Officially Apologizes Over Maps Debacle, Even Suggests Using Google

    There's been a bit of an uproar over the iOS 6 update to Apple Maps. It's not even that they're completely unusable; it's the fact that some of it seems perfectly normal, and suddenly it's horrifyingly inaccurate. Sufficed to say, you wouldn't want to rely on them to get around. Even worse, Google apparently doesn't have any plans to bring an app of their own to the market. It's not good, but how bad is it exactly? Bad enough that Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, has officially apologized for it.

  9. Apple Has So Much Money it is Giving Some Back to Shareholders With Dividends, Share Buy Back

    Apple's CEO Tim Cook has announced that the consumer electronics giant -- and world's most valuable company, be-tee-dubs -- will be paying shareholders a dividend of $2.65 a share starting this July -- the first since 1995. On top of that, the company will also launch a $10 billion effort to buy back shares of its stock, further bolstering its value. The move comes as Apple is enjoying record profits and the launch of a new iPad, and frankly has more money than it knows what to do with.

  10. Watch the Apple iPad 3 Announcement Live

    At 1 PM EST, Apple will be holding an event to announce the next iPad. Whether that iPad is named the iPad 3, or iPad HD as recent rumors have been suggesting, we'll know shortly after Apple takes the stage 1 PM. The event will be held at the Yerba Buena Center for Arts in San Francisco, one of Apple's favorite locations to hold these announcement events. Today, we'll likely see the confirmation or swift squashing of the more popular iPad 3 rumors, such as it being thicker, coming with a much faster A5X chip, larger battery, a 9.7-inch Retina display, and sporting 4G LTE compatibility, along with the possibility of a new Smart Cover.

    Though Apple is said to be making a downloadable version of the announcement available a few hours after said announcement, you can watch live coverage of the announcement right here, after the break.
