We'll have to wait just a bit to see Apple's own quarterly results on Tuesday afternoon, but there's plenty to look forward to if AT&T's own Q2 2012 results are any indication, with the onetime exclusive carrier activating 3.7 million iPhones during the quarter.
It's pretty much all Dark Knight Rises wherever you go and sure, we've got some of that love for you too. But that's not the only hot property going around the internet. There's always something Apple, always something in the water. So take a peek at what's under the cover including Steam's huge Summer Sale, some bad news for a handset maker, and something curious going on with Office 2013.
An error message discovered in iOS 6 Beta 3 has put a damper on one of the operating system's new features, which is the ability to make FaceTime video calls over a cellular data network. While AT&T and Verizon seem to be mulling how much to charge customers for such a privilege, as usual Sprint has no such issue.
It's not much of a surprise, especially now that rival Verizon Wireless has already introduced their own service, but AT&T has finally made good on its promise to introduce shared data plans -- and won't be forcing current customers to use them if they don't want to.
One of the iOS 6 features we're most looking forward to is FaceTime calls over a cellular connection -- no more being restricted to Wi-Fi only! But AT&T users might want to temper their excitement with a dose of reality.

The general consensus seems to be that Apple has nothing to fear with the iPad, which has thus far beaten back all contenders -- including LG, who actually just waved the white flag of surrender on its own Android-based tablet initiative.
