iPhone at CeBIT, LightWave

In brief: Apple is planning its return to CeBIT after eight years to display its iPhone, and NewTek has launched a time-limited offer on its LightWave 9 3D software bundled with training resources. Red Sweater Software has announced its acquisition of the MarsEdit blog publishing application, nova media updated its launch2net software, and Google Apps Premier Edition is set to take on the enterprise market. Apple is planning to return to the CeBIT computer expo in Hanover, Germany to present the iPhone after an eight year absence. The Cupertino-based company will not attend the show as a full exhibitor, but will provide its own staff to showcase its products.

NewTek has launched its LightWave 9 Training Bundle, offering consumers training materials for free with the purchase of LightWave 3D. Purchasers of new full or upgrade LightWave licenses will be eligible to receive a book, two training DVDs, 'getting started' courseware, and a package of royalty-free content for use with LightWave.

Red Sweater acquires MarsEdit

Red Sweater Software has acquired MarsEdit blog publishing software from NewsGator Technologies, promising to provide an intuitive email-like interface to the application. The software enables users to easily share thoughts with the world or friends, and Red Sweater promises to continue development with new features following the acquisition.

Launch2net is a mobile connection manager for Mac OS X that supports more than 150 devices, and already includes more than 300 network settings to connect to mobile networks around the globe.

    Apple NOT at CeBit

    This has been corrected on most news sites already - both Apple and the CeBit organizers now deny that Apple will exhibit there in March. This has been incorrectly reported by a German newspaper today.

    No iPhone at CeBIT!

    A german Apple spokesman said the dpa that Apple will NOT showcase the iPhone and will NOT provide its own staff.

    Oh, right

    Ok, now that I actually read the article, it seems that it contradicts itself: first "Apple is planning to return to CeBit" and then "will not attend the show as a full exhibitor".

    Ah well.
