As we edge closer to September, the August rumor cycle begins steaming up. Will September 7 prove the magic day? Will the iPhone 5 make its appearance? Will you be able to buy it that day? And what about this mysterious discount iPhone we keep hearing about? Prepaid? All in the cloud? What gives?
This week GameFly announced its exciting new PC and Mac online rental service that will allow gaming fans to subscribe to the service and download any of the games GameFly has to offer straight to their desktop.

Or, sail on, because I like nautical imagery (and themed pashminas!).
