Flash On Android

There is absolutely no question that Adobe Flash took a massive hit when late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs made it his personal mission to crush the shaky web tech and replace it with HTML5.

Apple is still hard at work making Apple Maps usable

New Apple Maps Data Partners

Apple Maps still might not be the best mobile mapping service available for the iPhone, but Apple is doing everything in its power to give its users a reason to stick with the first-party app. The team at Apple Maps Marketing reports that it attempted to submit a client with a few hundred locations to the Apple Maps Connect service, but was rejected as Apple is only accepting submissions involving at least 1,000 locations.

Foxconn is urgently building a new $2.6B display factory just for Apple

Foxconn Innolux iPhone Display

Apple is willing to do anything necessary to make sure it has a steady flow of components from suppliers when it comes to its best-selling products, and a new report from Bloomberg seems to confirm just that. The report reveals that Apple has apparently made an urgent request to Foxconn, the largest device manufacturer in the world and one of the main iPhone and iPad makers, for preferential treatment.
