The iPhone 4S is old news, so how about some new iPhone 5 rumours to chew through, or hunch over in pain at, depending on your love for Apple rumours. The iPhone 5,1 and Apple TV J33 have been exposed by beta firmware.
Local newspapers from around the year 1800 onwards have been digitised and stuck online by the British Newspaper Archive, taking us back to the days when front pages were heavier on the text than celebrity gusset photographs.
Looks like RIM's trying to maintain its enterprise strangle-hold, announcing its 'next-generation' device management system. BlackBerry Mobile Fusion will cover BlackBerrys, Android and iOS phones, as well as tablets, with one solution.
Your network trying to charge you for tethering your iPhone? Not so keen on paying another fee to use that data allowance you've already paid for? There's an app for that, and you don't even need to jailbreak.
You might not have come across Seagate's Momentus XT hybrid hard drive tech yet; you're unlikely find it in an off-the-shelf notebook. But, the spinning platter plus solid-state flash promises the best of both worlds -- speed and large storage.
The turn-based strategy genre is not as popular on the App Store as its third cousin (twice removed), Generic Tower Defence. The turf they occupy is cosmetically similar, but the complicated rules of the former are inversely proportional to the simple design of the latter. Which brings us to RAVENMARK, a defiantly complex game, but also a polished and classy attempt at battlefield chess. Fieldrunners, this certainly ain't.
Another creepy call-recording service has just launched, which doesn't just record phone conversations -- oh no, it stores them in a cloud for spousal-snooping. Or so scaremongerers would like to think. Personally, I think it sounds like a handy tool for journalists and the like.
Got an LG phone? I'm sorry. Anyway, if it's an Optimus 2X; Optimus Black or Optimus 3D, good news! LG has announced Ice Cream Sandwich is a-coming, though the exact dates won't be revealed until December. [Facebook via Pocketnow]
Can someone who has an iPhone 4S ask Siri what type of music she's into? I'm sure it's infinitely better than what you listen to. (I'm joking, of course! Maybe.) Thanks to the SiriProxy software recently created, it's now possible to control your Spotify playlist via Siri, queuing up new songs and even asking her to identify tracks for you.
Could Goodfellas and Taxi Driver do with a once-over with the 3D paintbrush? While most of us will be screaming "noooooo!" and jumping up and down waving our arms, Martin Scorsese has fallen for the charms of 3D after shooting Hugo and has said he wants to shoot all his next films in the format.
The rather "specialist" Japanese snapper who calls himself Photographer HAL is launching a risque (for Apple) app alongside his next book, giving iPad users a chance to enjoy some very odd shrinkwrapped soft porn.
I'm not sure how much time Queen Lizzy has for yachting when she's busy tapping the clock and looking expectantly at Kate Middleton's stomach, but the Daily Mail has launched a campaign to deliver a new "mega-yacht" to the Royal Family before the Queen's Diamond Jubilee next June. This might be one of the Mail's most fantastical articles ever.
I don't know about you, but unless there's vodka in my Red Bull, I don't feel much like making new "friends." But a Red Bull-like drink, obviously aping Facebook, promises to do just that -- well, until Zuckerberg's lawyers get on the case, anyway.
Another front in the great patent war is looking grim for HTC, with the phone maker withdrawing its defence from a German patent claim. Which could see all of its smartphones pulled from the German market.
Blur's bassist Alex James has turned desperate -- after shilling his cheese to all and sundry in every possible newspaper and magazine (and throwing a festival that's now been dubbed "Worstival"), he's now pimping Windows Phone with Microsoft, lending his name to a new social-rewards campaign called Into.
