iPhone Software Update 2.0.2 Released

Late Tuesday evening, Apple released version 2.0.2, a relatively modest update officially containing only bug fixes but unofficially including a number of non-bugfix tweaks to several major components of the onboard operating system as well as its bundled applications in at least three confirmed instances — Settings, Mail and Safari.


Stay tuned for a full “0-day” hands on review from Rumormongers’ Labs to be followed by Reader Reports from our best sources across the globe…..for now, some early vital stats on iPhone 2.0.2 which represents a “quick” release of key functional & security changes which couldn’t wait for the massive and impressive 2.1 release due in roughly two to three weeks’ time….

Although a parallel release for the iPod Touch is expected shortly including all non-phone & non-mobile-data/non-GPS related code — primarily security fixes in the core software, Settings, Mail and Mobile Safari — the releases for the two devices are expected to be synchronous for version 2.1 which will be a fully free update for both devices, provided you are already running the version 2.x.x software package.

Update to Infinite Loop Bldg. 6 fire news…..

According to sources who returned to the scene of the fire after having left overnight shifts or other late-night work at the company the previous evening….construction to add physical networking & other datacenter/office infrastructure had been installing air conditioning units to offset heat produced by the fast growing server iron located in that part of Building 6’s IS/IT/Networking division offices had been underway for several days prior to the incident which apparently sparked the fire.

Reportedly welding operations being done to support the heavyweight air conditioning hardware and ductwork somehow resulted in a fast-growing fire which escaped notice until it was too late for the welders or other construction personnel to put out directly.

Stay tuned for further developments as reports come in, and for a resumption of normal daily updates with some really hot dirt coming your way shortly….. Read more

BREAKING NEWS: 3-Alarm fire damages Apple HQ in Cupertino

According to the latest reports which we will continue to bring you as developments are relayed to us by long-time sources who have been on the scene through the whole ordeal, a building separate from Infinite Loop’s central structures which currently houses much of the company’s IT/server/networking team — the people who bring us Apple’s web sites, downloads, Software Updates and other services both internal and external in its vast corporate network — suffered a serious fire and considerable damage early Wednesday Pacific Time.

Over $2 Million US Dollars in damage is believed to have been done, possibly including physical items and/or data which is considered either irreplaceable or only able to be reconstructed at considerable effort — in some cases, according to our sources, solutions to Apple’s internal networking problems and an emerging package of solutions for Apple’s severely strained Retail Store network (forcing some stores’ managers to pay out of local funds for business-class broadband to take strain off their anemic corporate-provided connections which are even now usually painfully slow due to the traffic overload) which could cost far more than the physical damage might suggest to restore and actually begin implementing for future product roll-outs so there are no repeats of the “iPhone 3G roll-out snafu”…..
