Apparently a defective display may disrupt initial iPhone 5 shipments. According to a new report, supply chain makers have indicated that some of the touch panels made for the iPhone 5 look fine when they are made, but have defective issues that appear later during assembly of the device.
The sources indicate that the issue should be fixed quickly and, even if the initial supply of the iPhone 5 is delayed, Apple still intends to ship 25-26 million units of the device this year.
As the Thunderbolt port continues to make an appearance in Apple's lineup of products, a report out today has one item line beginning to ship to stores and resellers this week. Originally introduced in July, Apple's new 27-inch Thunderbolt Display could be making its way to customers soon.
Apple has been on quite a tear lately, introducing Intel Sandy Bridge processors and Thunderbolt I/O ports across (almost) all of its computers, including the newly refreshed 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Air models introduced last week. But is it the computer of your dreams? We examined the specs against the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro to find out.
It's been five months since Thunderbolt technology arrived on the scene with the latest MacBook Pro refresh. At the time, not many devices were available to make use of the speedy new I/O connection.

While some devices and accessories may not be available just yet, many should be arriving shortly. We highlight a handful that could help with all your future data transferring needs.

Video technology has evolved quickly over the last ten years and, to keep pace, Apple has had to change out the video ports on Macs with roughly the same frequency that Lady Gaga changes outfits. The general state of things currently is that older standards like VGA and DVI (and their variants) are being phased out and replaced by HDMI and DisplayPort (including its variants, Mini-DisplayPort and Thunderbolt). There are still plenty of peripherals with the older ports, however, and finding the correct adapter to suit your needs can be tricky.
The advent of last year's iPhone 4 caused quite a stir with its high resolution Retina Display. So, when the iPad 2 was announced, we were expecting to see that Apple's next-generation tablet would follow suit with a Retina Display of its own. It didn't, but that doesn't mean that it falls short when compared to its smaller iOS brother. Whether we're watching a movie, playing a game or browsing the web, the iPad 2's display really does impress, and as Dr. Raymond Soneira, President of DisplayMate Technologies points out in his recent iPad and iPhone display shoot out, the two iOS devices are like two peas in a pod -- or, as he puts it, Arnold Schwarzneggar and Danny DeVito's characters in Twins.
Regardless of what you use your computer for, there’s one thing that’s in common with all set ups: a display.

As rumors of a new, smaller “iPhone nano” swirl across the pipes, a report from Taiwan indicates that Apple may choose to go in the other direction for the next iPhone -- essentially keeping the same form factor but increasing the screen size to four inches to better compete with Android smartphones.
