Requests "confidentiality treatment" for iPhone 4 specs even as it spills the beans on iTunes
Patently Apple has turned up a curious letter. It was sent on June 4, three days before Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone 4, to the Federal Communications Commission -- the government agency that must certify any wireless device before it can be marketed in the U.S.
Signed by Apple's (AAPL) wireless compliance manager, it requests confidentiality for MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 18, 2010 1:42 PM ET

Using an independent advertising platform to get Flash in the iPhone and iPad's back door
Here's an odd twist.
In a press statement scheduled for release two hours before Steve Jobs' WWDC keynote, Adobe (ADBE) has announced that it is teaming up with an independent mobile advertising network to bring advertisements written in Flash to a variety of mobile devices, including Apple's (AAPL) iPhone and iPad and Google's (GOOG) Android phones.

5,000 Apple developers have descended on San Francisco to get this year's marching orders

But in the world of Apple (AAPL), the Worldwide Developers Conference MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 6, 2010 8:42 PM ET

A leading Apple analyst offers his Worldwide Developers Conference checklist
The developers conference that begins June 7 is likely to be "a non-event" for Apple's (AAPL) share price, according to Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster, with few surprises.
But in the note to clients he issued Wednesday he adds that the new iPhone he expects Steve Jobs to introduce will likely drive unit sales beyond Wall Street's targets -- "providing a positive MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - May 26, 2010 6:07 AM ET
Can he really "blow Google out of the water" with his WWDC keynote?
Steve Jobs may come to regret that widely re-posted e-mail promising an Apple (AAPL) loyalist that he won't be "disappointed" by the announcements the company has lined up for the Worldwide Developers Conference, which begins in San Francisco in less than two weeks.
