June is fast approaching, and that means it's time for sons and daughters to celebrate the man who helped bring them into the world on Father's Day -- and Apple.com is already gussied up for the occasion.
WWDC 2012 week is winding down, which means things should get back to normal next week ahead of the July release of OS X Mountain Lion. Then again, Google could pull a rabbit out of its hat at its own I/O developer conference coming at the end of the month, so we have that to look forward to as well. For now, let’s get a dose of tech news for this Thursday, June 14, 2012.
We were among the few, the proud who lined up outside their nearest Sprint dealer exactly three years ago tomorrow to buy the Palm Pre, the first device to feature the company’s innovative webOS software. While the device went back to the store two weeks later (never could get past that awful chiclet keyboard!), we remained fascinated by the platform, all the way to its bitter end last year with the HP TouchPad. Now you can relive the platform’s entire sad history, along with everything else happening this Tuesday, June 5, 2012.
We're pretty much going to let the deals do the talking here. Suffice to say that this is one of the most ridiculous perfect-storms of iOS deals we've ever seen. Three of the biggest players on the App Store are unleashing their deals simultaneously this weekend.
Father's Day is this Sunday! If you're getting Dear Ol Dad an iPhone or iPad -- or if he already has one -- treat him to one of these discounted apps. We promise we won't tell that you saved a few bucks.
