It seems like just about everyone with the time or resources to do so is cranking out their own Apps these days. The latest to the App Store party? Time Warner Cable.
While the company has plans for the application that include being able to dump content they had been watching at home on to their tablets to watch later, currently the app is limited to being a sweet-looking user interface that Time Warner's Cable's subscribers can use to navigate through the company's television offierings.

Still trying to grab an iPhone 4, seven weeks after it was first launched? You may not be alone, if recent stock inquiries into Apple retail locations are any indication -- the popular handset is still sold out at nearly half of their stores. So much for “Antennagate”…

Kara Swisher of All Things D speculates that the event could introduce FaceTime as an open industry standard, or bring new processors to the iPod. We're sort of banking on the latter, hoping we'll see new music players from Apple with attached cameras and retina displays. Really, if all the rumors could just come together and become a reality, we'll be completely satisfied.
It's not too late in the day for a little rumor talk. Engadget is reporting that the upcoming Apple TV will lose the previously rumored 1080p playback ability, but will gain a slew of its own kind of apps. Also, Apple TV is ditching its former name, as it will now be referred to as iTV.

Which is great, but what's the deal with no 1080i or 1080p video? Instead, it will only be able to handle 720p clips. It's alleged that the iPhone 4's A4 processor isn't enough to handle the output of such high resolution video, which makes us a little teary eyed.
