Apple Announces Thinner, Lighter iPad Air

Apple Announces Thinner, Lighter iPad Air
Apple has been up and about with its innovations in the products and the OS updates. With the iPad and the iPad mini doing great, Apple has got some great feedback for its tablet devices.

The original full size ipad’s successor has been unveiled and is named The iPad Air. It is stated to be one of the best tablets in the market presently. The new model is designed to be much thinner than its predecessor and is a lot more lighter in weight. With a design that is as much as twenty percent thinner and weighing only a pound, it becomes the lightest tablet of its size.

The new design that entails it be 28% lighter than what it was before makes it extremely desirable and easier to carry around. The ease of mobility has always been one of the points that most tablets have tried to achieve. It also has a 43% narrower bezel surrounding the borders of the screen. With all of these enhancements, the device’s volume has gone down by a neat 24% margin, giving it a great edge over the previous generation.
iPad Air - Specification, Features
Philip Schiller, marketing chief for Apple stated the advanced new version to be a different experience at all new levels. At the launch he downright admitted that the beauty and elegance of the product is felt and noticed at the very first look and said that anyone who holds it once would understand how this is a revolution in the segment. He also presented its stats that are mentioned below:

  • 9.7 inch Retina Display
  • 1 pound in weight
  • 64 bit desktop-class Apple A-7 chip
  • All day battery life
  • Lightest full sized tablet
  • M7 motion Processor along with doubled graphics
  • MiMo wireless technology
The A7 chip that was launched with the iPhone 5s is one of the hardware advancements that the tablet owners will enjoy and features a 64 bit architecture. The M7 Motion Processor adds to the graphical experience and the processor performance which will make you swoon to its beauty and finess.

Another noteworthy feature is its MiMo wireless Technology which allows you to connect more than one wi-fi connections together. This comprehensively boosts the performance to two times its predecessor. The models that have the cellular capability also feature an expansion in the LTE support.

For people looking at its camera features; this version has a 5 megapixel camera with an additional front facing camera for convenient facetime experince. It also has a sual microphone for better voice quality. And if you’re already sweating at the thought of a drained battery, you might want to read on. It still features the 10 hour battery support despite all these features coming in.

The iPad Air is going to be available in 3 different colors: the black,white and space grey. Its price bracket is going to start at $499. The models that support cellular LTE are going to cost a little more and start at $629.

The iPad 2 is not going anywhere and would be available onwards of $399. The company announced that its sales for the iPad device have gone past 170 million as of early October. With reviews pouring in and tech fanatics going all over the responsiveness of the new model, it seems the sales are just going to dazzle the company further.

The Truth behind Server Clusters; Surviving in the Cloud Era

The Truth behind Server Clusters; Surviving in the Cloud Era
Server Clusters
The toughest question that bothers everyone is to find out which one suits your organization; a cloud, or a cluster. To choose the right kind of server for the success of your business is very critical. Cloud comes out as a clear winner, because of the monetary factors, if the market surveys are followed. But money is not all that matters. If you’re in a perpetual confusion and unsurety on whether to go for cloud hosting or server clusters, our round up and comparison might just help you out.

Understanding the Concepts of Cloud and Clustering

It is easier to understand the concept of a cloud if you imagine a huge building with several rooms for lent. You pay for one of the apartments and rent it for as many days, months or years, you wish to. The vacant rooms are supposed to be marketed by the owner of the building for other tenants who can come by and rent them. More tenants equal to more ROI.

For your own safety, as well as a responsible space owner, you would want to secure your parameters by putting extra locks on the doors, automate burglar and fire alarms, place surveillance cameras, and so on. Cloud helps you to set-up these systems only in your own space while you have to trust your building owner completely for the hallways, elevators, stairs, lounges, fire exits, and the reception. This is known as cloud. Most providers follow this principle. Vacancies go for sale, while you rent a place in the building of virtual servers.

Server clusters, on the other hand, is like your home. You are free to shut down the gates and give intruders warning signs to stay away from your property. In case someone tries to break into your house, the suspicious footprints can give you the necessary hints. Then all you have to do is beef up the security measure a notch higher from your master bedroom till the garage and the gate.

The server stores every data like payrolls, client records, presentations, thousands of email conversations which contain proprietary information and even general updating information of your Facebook account.

The cloud acts as a “black box” like those in cockpits of aircraft's which contain all information of your organization stored in those virtual services. You appreciate the metal clusters that can be easily scrutinized by you for any threats at any given point of time. To add to it, you share it with no one, so it is exclusively your own information.

Cluster over Cloud

Ever experienced hassled because your joint account partner is unavailable? This can be classified as cloud. In case of an error, the whole system crashes, stalling all your business operations.

Cluster in server comes to rescue here. In case of a server failure, you can easily swap and replace such that the system restores power. For example, there are several ATMs in case the one you use is out of order.

Cloud Over Cluster

The one problem that people have faced with customised clustering solutions is their demand of similar versions of the operating systems and the hardware for every physical machine involved. Also, it becomes a necessity for clusters to access high speed for tying everything together unlike the cloud which can sustain on long latency connections.

There are obvious reasons why computer science considers cloud computing to be a breakthrough. But there are reasons why people prefer a certain genre of music over other, simply because that is what they need at that point of time. Cloud is more promising, though it might not be the ultimate package, while server clustering is not perfect for all.

Apple Introduced OS X Mavericks in WWDC 2013

Apple Introduced OS X Mavericks in WWDC 2013
Apple introduced the new operating system for their Mac computers, the OS X Mavericks has new re-designed user interface and more than 200 new features. Besides the new moniker, OS X Mavericks also brings a number of new features.

Here's a look at the major ones

Finder Tabs
  • While it's been ages since tabs made it to web browsers, OS X Mavericks brings tabs to the Finder. You can browse different folders in one Finder window using tabs. For instance open the desktop in one tab, your Dropbox folder in another and your documents in another one. You can drag and drop files from one tab to another, and organise and view tabs as per your preference. Finder windows also get a full screen view in the update.
  • Just like you put tags in your blog posts for quick discovery, you can put tags to your files in local and iCloud folders.
  • You can simply tag files you want to organise together with a keyword. You can even give multiple tags to a single file. Tags appear in the Finder sidebar or can be entered in the search field. You can assign tags in respective apps and they'll be grouped together in one place. So you can apply tags in the Finder, in individual apps when you save files and in iCloud.
Enhanced multiple display support
  • Unlike the current version os OS X, Mavericks offers a richer experience when you have multiple displays connected to your Mac. Each connected display gets its own menu bar, and the Dock is available on whichever screen you're working on.
  • You can run multiple app windows on either display or run an app in full screen mode on each. It's even possible to see the desktop on one display and a full-screen app on another one. You can also turn your Apple TV connected TV to a full function display using AirPlay. All screens can be controlled via Mission Control.
  • Apple has extended its Maps apps to the desktop with OS X mavericks. The Maps app offers the Flyover 3D experience that offers rich previews of city landscapes. It also offers local points of interest such as restaurants and hotels, offering phone numbers, photos, and Yelp reviews. Maps on desktop also offers point-to-point directions, real-time traffic conditions, and alternate routes. You can even send a map to your iPhone for voice navigation. Maps have also been integrated with Mail, Contacts, and Calendar.
  • Just like Maps, Apple has extended iBooks to the desktop with OS X Mavericks. Books downloaded on your iOS devices appear automatically on your Mac. And there are over 1.8 million more in the iBooks Store, ready for you to download with just a few clicks.
  • The app also offers an optimised reading experience and offers features like turning pages with a swipe, zoom in on images with a pinch, or scroll from cover to cover with the app. It also offers a dark mode for reading.
  • iBooks also integrates iCloud sync and when you take notes, highlight passages, or add a bookmark on your Mac, iCloud pushes them to all your devices automatically. It also offers features like adding citations when you quote while writing a paper, for students.
  • OS X Mavericks offers better actionable notifications that let you perform actions in response without leaving the app you're in. You can reply to a message, respond to a FaceTime video call, or delete an email right from a notification. All notifications are also offered in a summary if you're away from your Mac. You can also choose to receive notifications from iOS apps.
Updated Safari browser
  • The updated Safari web browser in OS X Mavericks offers new user interface features including a new Top Sites page that lets you easily organise your frequently visited websites. You can add sites from bookmarks and rearrange the website thumbnails by dragging them wherever you wish to.
  • Safari also offers a Shared Links list in the new Sidebar that shows links posted by people you follow on Twitter and LinkedIn. Under the hood, Safari features the new Nitro Tiered JIT and Fast Start technologies for zippy and more responsive web browsing. Apple has also integrated new power-saving technologies, so that the Mac doesn't waste power on background processes and plug-in content.
Advanced features for power optimisation
  • For faster performance and longer battery life, Apple has integrated new innovations with OS X Mavericks including Timer Coalescing that groups low-level operations together so that the processor doesn't use more power and battery is conserved, App Nap that saves power while working on multiple apps by slowing down the apps that are in the background, and compressed memory that frees up memory space for faster performance.
New Calendar
  • The skeuomorphic leather folder user interface has now been replaced with a fresh new minimalistic look. It now offers continuous scrolling to browse across weeks and months and can look at the last half of one month and the first half of the next one simultaneously. It also brings a new event inspector making it simpler to create and edit events by suggesting addresses and points of interest when you start typing in the location field. The new Calendar app shows the event's location on a map, calculates travel time, and even displays a weather forecast.
iCloud Keychain
  • iCloud Keychain remembers and stores your website user names and passwords on the devices you approve and protects them with AES 256-bit encryption. It keeps all the data up to date on all your iOS and Mac devices.
  • The iCloud Keychain automatically fills user credentials whenever and wherever you need them. OS X Mavericks also offers a new Password Generator that suggests unique, hard-to-guess passwords for your online accounts. It also offers the option to store credit card information too.

Apple Introduced iOS 7 in WWDC 2013

It is. iOS 7, the latest version of Apple’s flagship mobile operating system, is here, and it’s almost entirely different from the versions that came before. Gone are the skeuomorphic designs and 3D effects, replaced by Sir Jony Ive’s “flat design.” Rumors had been flying for weeks about the new OS and now it’s here and it is, at least at this early reckoning, a massive change for the six year old operating system.

iOS 7 for iPhone, iPad and iPod

First, we must remember that Ive, Apple’s industrial designer now in control of software following the departure of Scott Forstall, isn’t a believer in interfaces that copy real-world objects. In the past, making the Notes app look like a legal pad or the calendar app look like a Moleskine calendar notebook were part of the iOS design philosophy, as ingrained in the OS as “Slide To Unlock.” All that is gone now.

New Look:
  • iOS 7 has a new font leading the way, which seems to be a sort of Helvetica Neue Ultra. It’s very skinny, clean, and it was hinted at in the iOS 7 banners that went up for WWDC yesterday.
  • Instead of white bars on a black background, Apple will now tell you what kind of service coverage you have with five little dots, which are white and grey depending on how strong the signal is across a translucent background.
  • The lock screen is changed for the first time in iOS’s history, with no more shine top or bottom bars for slide to unlock or the clock. Instead, Slide to unlock is translucent above the background image.
  • Default app icons are now flatter, but not quite flat, just as predicted.
  • Jony Ive’s hand has had its way with iOS notifications. The notifications panel isn’t laced with dark grey linen anymore, but actually has a very flat look to it. There is a today view, that lets you see friends birthdays, upcoming invitations, calendar, stocks, and a quick look at tomorrow.
  • The apps all seem to have a white base, except for the stocks app which has a black background and the weather app, which shows motion in the background to convey the current weather.
  • The keyboard is more white, than grey, with a translucency that lets you see what’s underneath the keyboard.
iOS 7 for iPhone, iPad and iPod

New Features:

Control Center

  • Control Center is a pull-up tray that is available in your lock screen.
  • You can adjust brightness, volume, and other settings including Wifi, Airplane mode, rotation lock, or Bluetooth.
  • The Control Center even offers a flashlight, along with tabs for music, camera, and other quick-access apps.
  • The Control Center takes on the environment it’s in, so if you swipe up while you’re in mail, it will have the same blue and white coloring under that translucent panel.
  • iOS 7 lets you multitask between all third-party apps with much better battery consumption.
  • You can double-tap the home button to enter into multi-tasking mode, just like always, but the interface for multitasking has been revamped. It appears to offer live previews, but Apple wasn’t clear about that.
  • Safari opens straight into full screen mode now, with the option to pull down to bring up the search bar at the top.
  • The search field has been improved to be a unified smart search field, which lets you have access to all your favorite websites with a single tap.
  • Tabs come with a totally new interface, scrolling in a vertical carousel, and there are no longer any limits. In other words, you can have as many tabs as you want, as opposed to just 8 like before. Swipe a tab off to the side to throw it away.
  • The new Safari is integrated with iCloud keychain from OS X Mavericks, and also comes with parental controls.
  • You can share sharesheets with other people by simply tapping their name. No NFC required.
  • Airdrop supports iPhone 5, iPad 4th gen, iPad Mini
Camera And Photos
  • The Camera app lets you swipe between your various camera types, such as panorama or HDR so you can quickly take a pic instead of fumbling around with settings.
  • Photos marks the first update to the photo gallery on iOS since it was introduced.
  • You can search based on date, and location, within the photos app.
  • Instagram must be flattered - Apple has introduced photo filters so you can add a little professionalism to the picture.
  • Users can share via AirDrop, iCloud photo-sharing, as well as shared Photo Streams.
  • You can even share video with iCloud photo-sharing.
  • Siri has a new voice! It sounds similar, but also weird. You can choose a male or female voice, if you like. Voices include languages like French, German, and other languages “over time.”
  • The visual UI has also been upgraded, with a sound wave going along the bottom.
  • Siri has also been integrated with settings, letting you tell her to turn on bluetooth, or lower the screen brightness.
  • The company has also added support for Twitter, Wikipedia, and shows web search results direct from Bing.
iOS In The Car
  • iOS in the Car depends a lot on Siri.
  • It puts the iOS homescreen on the screen of your car, and lets you search for directions, listen to music, etc.
  • App Store
  • You can now search for apps based on location. In other words, search for apps by the Louvre and see a lot of French museum apps.
  • The App Store also automatically updates apps for you in the background now. Hallelujah again!
iTunes Radio
  • Apple has finally introduced the much-anticipated iTunes Radio, which gives a Genius-like experience to the entire 26-million title iTunes catalog.
  • You can see the full list of songs on each station by clicking history, with purchase and preview buttons built right in to send you to the iTunes store.
  • iTunes Radio also lets you customize each station by clicking a star to show that you want more of this type of music.
  • iTunes Match users will get an ad-free experience, but others will be able to use the app for free with a few audio and text ads.
Activation Lock
  • This is for those of us who have had an iPhone stolen.
  • If a thief steals your phone and tries to turn off Find My iPhone, they can no longer turn the device back on without your iCloud password.
  • Users can also block messages and calls from other users.
Apple rolled out iOS 7 soon to all iDevice users in next few weeks and users can get update on Over the Air or from iTunes.


Apple Prepares For Battle With Iphone 5s Releasing This Year

The battle between the top Android based smartphone brands Samsung and Apple continues, as Apple has decided to come up with the new iPhone 5S after the successful launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4. While, some hold the view that Samsung has already overtaken the iPhone 5’s performance with the new Galaxy S4, others retain the fact that the iPhone 5 is still the world’s favorite. Whatever be the case, Apple has realized the sheer power of the newly launched Samsung GS4 and is thus, come on to the battle arena to produce a better iPhone.

Iphone 5s - Full Releasing this Year

According to the reports, the Apple iPhone 5S will soon hit production and is expected to be launched in the market by the second quarter this year. According to the journals the iPhone 5S could be launched during June of July this year and along with that, Apple is supposed to be working on a cheaper plastic-built iPhone model as well.

As of now there is naturally a vast amount of speculations and rumors doing the rounds about the latest product from Apple, while the mobile giant seems to be rather keen to take out some brand new product in the market as soon as possible. Thus, it is strongly believed that apple is also working on the budget variant of the iPhone in order to grab wider range of consumers.

As usual there’s also a lot of buzz about various new inclusions of features in the next iPhone that will compete against the whole host of innovative features of the GS4. One feature that might make its way in the iPhone 5S is the fingerprint sensor underneath the home button for secure transactions, but then again there is no conformation to it as yet.

While on the other hand, the budget iPhone model is supposed to sport a 4-inch display and use a new cheaper type of casing, probably plastic. There’s no confirmation about a Retina Display as well. According to the market experts, Apple is producing this cheaper iPhone to be targeted at the developing markets such as China and Brazil.

Budget iPhone Models

All the details about the iPhone 5S are veiled under thick clouds for now and there are talks about a 4.2 inch display and even an overall changed design for the smartphone. The iPhone 5S is expected to feature a Full HD display, new A7 chipset, and iOS 7.

Let us take a look at all the speculated details about the successor of the iPhone 5.

Design and built

On this field there’s really no clear picture, as there are vastly contradicting speculations and claims regarding the looks of the iPhone 5S . While some say that it will look very similar to the iPhone 5, the other claim that it will be an entirely different looking device.

Even the ongoing iPhone 5’s looks are criticized now regarding the bigger smartphones all over the market. The Android based smartphone market is really dominated by large touchscreen phones in the recent time, compared to which the iPhone 5 looks puny indeed. Thus one certain consumer demand from Apple would be to have a larger display. Reports say that Apple will take on a new design appeal and will re-design the new handset. The reports also say that the device will be sleeker and lighter than the iPhone 5.

There are other rumors of the budget iPhone of being on the make and the screen size also has contradictory notions. While some say that it will be 4.2-inches, others claim a large 4.8-inch size. However, if Apple is in producing multiple models, then both the sizes may be feasible for two different models, but for now we don’t get to know the exact display size of the iPhone 5S. As for the display technology, it can be safely said that Apple will go for either Retina IPS LCD or IGZO display technology. Some sources also claim that the iPhone 5S will come with multiple colour schemes.


The iPhone 5S is expected to get a processor upgrade. The minimum expectation is to see the inclusion of the A6X chip which features itself inside the iPad 4. However, the speculations say that Apple will have an A7 chip most probably a quad-core, ready for the iPhone 5S.

According to the reports, Apple is distancing itself from manufacturing partner Samsung and developing a closer relationship with TSMC and it is also linked with Intel.

It is not known whether or not Intel would make the ARM chips. Having Intel as a chip maker for Apple might be a drastic change but the partnership might work as both the companies are known for their performance. Apple may also opt to upgrade to ARM Cortex-A15 architecture and might get 4G LTE connectivity as networks are expanding fast, and rumors flowing that the phone might accompany with 5G Wi-Fi and Bluetooth chip.

There’s yet another rumor that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) is creating Apple’s next-gen A7 processor chip for the iPhone 5S.


The iPhone 5S is expected to sport a massive 13 megapixel camera along with which Apple might also introduce new software suite to compliment the camera following its rivals. The latest speculation also suggests that the iPhone 5S will sport an improved FaceTime Camera that features instant autofocus even in unfavorable lighting conditions.

iOS 7

There’s a huge amount of buzz about the iPhone 5S’s iOS. It is expected that Apple will be launching a new-look mobile operating system. Many details on Apple’s plans are not available but as Jony Ive, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Industrial Design, has been called in to help with a complete overhaul of the company’s aging UI gives us the hope that it’ll be something massive.

iPhone 5S Lauch Date

Launch date

According to the reports, Apple will launch a new product in the second half of 2013, now whether it is the iPhone 5S or the budget variant, is not clear.

iPhone 5S Price

Here also there’s no clear idea. As there’s a lot of talk about a budget iPhone, it can be expected that Apple will release a low-cost smartphone beside a premium model launch.

A premium quality aluminum bodied iPhone 5S is expected to start at £529 for the 16GB model going up to £699 for the 64GB model, while the cheaper plastic body iPhone could be anywhere around £300. However, it will be a huge surprise, if Apple could launch it in the sub £200 category. The iPhone lovers can keep their fingers crossed!

Apple Finally Adds Two-Step Verification System to iCloud and Apple ID, How to Enable or Disable?

Apple has recently released two-step verification system to their iCloud and Apple ID like Google's Gmail. This feature is reduces the possibility of someone accessing or making unauthorized changes to your account information at My Apple ID or making purchases using your account.

How to Enable or Disable two-step verification system on iCloud and Apple ID?

Your Apple ID is the key to many important things you do with Apple, such as purchasing from the iTunes and App Stores, keeping personal information up-to-date across your devices with iCloud, and locating, locking, or wiping your devices. Two-step verification is a feature you can use to keep your Apple ID as secure as possible.

  • Select "Password and Security."
  • Under Two-Step Verification, select Get Started and follow the on-screen instructions.
How does it work?

When you set up two-step verification, you have to enter both password and verification code for every time sign-in to your account.

How to Enable or Disable two-step verification system on iCloud and Apple ID?

If you would like to turn it off, you can follow these steps:
  • Go to My Apple ID (, select "Manage your Apple ID," and then sign-in.
  • Select the "Password and Security" tab.
  • Click "Turn off two-step verification."

Apple again in Battle of Patents on Samsung's Galaxy Note II Banned in US

Apple has asked a federal court to add six more products to its patent infringement lawsuit against Samsung, including the Samsung Galaxy Note II, in the latest in move in an ongoing legal war between the two companies.

Samsung Galaxy Note II

The case is one of two patent infringement lawsuits pending in the US District Court in San Jose by Apple against Samsung. An earlier lawsuit by Apple that related to different patents resulted in a US$1.05 billion jury verdict against Samsung on August 24.

Apple is also seeking to add the Samsung Galaxy S III, running the new Android "Jelly Bean" operating system, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wifi, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, the Samsung Rugby Pro, and the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini, to its lawsuit, according to a court filing on Friday.

"Apple has acted quickly and diligently to determine that these newly-released products do infringe many of the same claims already asserted by Apple," the company said in the filing.

Samsung representatives did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Apple filed the second lawsuit in February, alleging that various Samsung smartphone and tablet products including the Galaxy Nexus infringed eight of its patents.

Samsung denied infringement and filed a cross-complaint alleging that Apple's iPhone and iPad infringed eight of its patents.
A US judge on November 15 allowed Samsung to pursue claims the iPhone5 also infringes its patents.

The case is Apple Inc v Samsung Electronics Co, Ltd, et al, No. 12-cv-00630.

What are all the Features in 4-inch Retina Display of Apple's New iPhone 5

More display means more to see. Anyone can make a larger smartphone display. But if you go large for large’s sake, you end up with a phone that feels oversize, awkward, and hard to use. iPhone 5 features a 4-inch display designed the right way: it’s bigger, but it’s the same width as iPhone 4S. So everything you’ve always done with one hand — typing on the keyboard, for instance — you can still do with one hand. On a larger canvas that lets you see more of every web page. More of your inbox. More events on your calendar.  Even more apps on your Home screen.
It’s more vibrant, too.
This isn’t just a larger display. It’s a larger Retina display. At 326 pixels per inch, it has a pixel density so high your eye can’t distinguish individual pixels. And as stunning as the Retina display is on the iPhone 4S, this one gives you 18 percent more pixels for an impressive 1136-by-640 resolution. Colors get a boost, too, with color saturation that’s 44 percent greater than before. So with iPhone 5, the games you play, the words you read, the images you see, and the apps you love look and feel incredibly vivid and lifelike. For big-time entertainment, iPhone 5 lets you watch widescreen HD video in all its glory — without letterboxing.

In comparison to the current iPhone 4S, the logic board will retain its positioning on the right side of the handset. An interesting change from past iPhones is the monolithic EMI shielding on the board's underside, which in previous generations was split into two or three separate sections.

The SIM card tray slot can just barely be seen, however it is not possible to make out whether the logic board will employ the Apple-backed nano-SIM standard recently ratified by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute. Photos of what is believed to be a nano-SIM tray bound for the next-gen iPhone surfaced less than a week ago.

Apple is expected to announce the new iPhone (iPhone 5), which is rumored to sport a larger 4-inch screen and possible LTE connectivity, at an as-yet-unannounced special event on this September 12.

Apple Eyes Stake in Twitter, Currently Not in Discussions

Apple in recent months has held negotiations with Twitter to explore investing hundreds of millions of dollars in the company, The New York Times reported on Friday, citing people briefed on the matter. The Wall Street Journal said such discussion were held over a year ago, citing a person familiar with the matter.

Apple eyes stake in Twitter, Currently not in discussions

It is unclear if the two companies talked about a deal in the past and at what level such discussions were held, but there are no current, formal talks between the companies on an investment or acquisition, the sources said.

Both Apple and Twitter declined to comment on the matter.

The iPhone and iPad maker typically does not take equity stakes in companies and prefers to acquire technologies by buying up smaller startups that are lesser known. Twitter executives have said repeatedly they are in no rush to seek additional financing, either privately or on public markets, since they have "truckloads" of cash.

Apple eyes stake in Twitter

Apple has never delved deeply into the social media space dominated by Facebook Inc, but it has dabbled in trying to make music more social by launching a social network on iTunes called Ping, which has not caught on.

Twitter, the Internet phenomenon with some 140 million users that allows people to "tweet" 140-character messages, is already well integrated into Apple smartphones and tablets. Apple customers can directly share their comments on Twitter when on their iPhones, iPads or Mac line of computers.

Twitter, the San Francisco-based startup that is viewed as the most significant candidate for the public markets following Facebook, is ramping up its efforts to generate revenue from the 400 million tweets that cross its networks daily.
