All Things D reports that the file size of Condé Nast's magazine apps are too huge! The problem has been ongoing since Wired's first issue took up almost a half a gigabyte of memory on our beloved device, and has spilled over into the magazine publisher's latest iPad digital magazine, The New Yorker. Each issue takes up 173 megabytes, and that's for a weekly edition.

Not a day goes by without another salacious Apple rumor making the rounds on the internet. This time, a team of analysts from Goldman Sachs are claiming that their sources have all the information about Apple's second-generation iPad next spring that will feature a camera, Mini USB port and a lighter design.
This morning, we got the chance to chat over the phone with DisplayMate's president, Dr. Raymond Soneira. We asked him a few questions about his detailed study of Smartphone displays, what he had to say about his results, and whether or not there may be an iPad with a Retina Display in the near future.
Oh, we love nothing more than a good juicy rumor around Mac|Life. We were devoted followers of every single tidbit in the run up to the release of the iPad and beyond. Now it looks like there could be another tablet in the running to be the iPad Killah, if these rumors about Amazon can be credited.
We can't think of a better way to start our morning than by hearing the news that a much needed and much anticipated update to Apple's free Remote App for iOS has finally been made available in the App Store. You may recall that a while back, we let you in on the fact that the first iteration of the Remote App was built by a single developer, which may well have attributed to why it's taken so darn long for an update to crop up. No matter whether the 2.0 version of the app was built by the same fellow or a million-strong code monkey army, we couldn't be happier to see this update make the scene.
