Apple updates Leopard
Apple on Saturday released a quick update to its next-generation operating system: the Login & Keychain Update 1.0 for Mac OS X 10.5, which was only released yesterday, is 10MB and brings fixes for upgrades from Mac OS X 10.1, Wifi users, and FileVault, Apple's optional security for users' documents. Apple's documentation says that the free update fixes logging in with an account originally created in Mac OS X 10.1 or earlier that has a password of 8 or more characters and also issues when connecting to some 802.11b/g wireless networks. The company also said it fixes issues when changing the password of a FileVault-protected account. The software update has changed with the release of Leopard with the updates installed just before the computer is restart or shutdown (rather than right away in Tiger).
iPhone, iPod are 'coolest'
Apple's popular iPhone has been named the coolest gadget of the year by British technology magazine Stuff, while its said that the iPod was the "greatest gadget ever." The iPhone, which has yet to launch in the UK, took top place in Stuff's Cool List 2007: "The mobile to end all mobiles pipped all the other top-name entries to earn the planet's biggest gadget accolade. The touchscreen device redefined how humans interact with their phones as well as offering almost every feature no self-respecting mobile should be without. How could we resist?" Apple's iPod nano was ranked No. 10 list and the iPhone, expected to be available next month through an exclusive agreement with O2, also took the reader's choice award.
Restricted iPhone sales
Apple this week began restricting its sales of iPhones in attempt to block users from reselling them. Apple confirmed circulating reports that it will no longer accept cash for iPhone purchases as an attempt to people from reselling them, and that it now limits sales of the popular mobile device to two per person, according to The Associated Press. Much like it limited sales during the iPhone launch, the new policy is to ensure adequate iPhone inventory for a larger number of customers; it started Thursday, Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris told the publication. Before that there was no cash restriction and the purchase limit was five per person.
