The banners are going up in San Francisco, and that means another Apple media event is on the way next week. Given that it's likely to the be the company's last such shindig for 2013, there's plenty of speculation and anticipation about what Cupertino has in store for us on Tuesday -- but in the meantime, let's coast into the weekend with a recap of what else is making news...
That e-tailer Amazon is working diligently on its own smartphone is hardly a secret -- it's been rumored for quite some time. But could the company partner with HTC and make the handset exclusive to subscribers of its Prime service?

With the unveiling of the iPhone 5s and 5c, our real deals today are focused on cases that will work with the flagship product that Cupertino loves so much.

[Advertorial] We're all excited to see what Apple's new iPhone is going to bring to the table, but every time there's a new model it leaves us wondering one thing: What do we do with our old iPhone?

That's a nice return on a piece of tech you won't be using, and if you act soon you'll be able to keep your current phone until the moment your new iPhone is in hand. Find out more about this offer after the jump.
