Ever wondered what a Steve Jobs statue would look like? If you have, it's quite possible it doesn't look anything like the bust of the Apple co-founder that was unveiled in Belgrade, Serbia today. The statue, picked from more than 10,000 entries in a competition, was sculpted by Serbian native Dragan Radenovic.

It seems like there's something going on or about to happen, but we can't quite put our finger on it. Like something that didn't get mentioned. Like an event-wide "one more thing." Hmmmm, well, maybe you can spot it in this week's hottest news.
It looks as though Apple's "spaceship campus" is all but ready to take off.

If you've been wondering how things are progressing for Apple's shiny new "spaceship" campus, the San Jose Mercury News has some new information for you.

If you've been wondering if all these rumors we've been throwing your way over the last few months have any truth to them, you'll be happy to know that at least one does.

Tuesday finally saw Apple pull the trigger on the latest update to OS X Mountain Lion, and as usual for Cupertino, the release notes barely scratched upon the biggest improvement: No more viewing iMessages out of order on the Mac!
