There really was only one Apple news story this week; no use pretending otherwise. Sure, there were a couple other stories about Google or someone else, and we'll mention a couple of them, but the big news was the big news.

The reality is, the average person doesn’t have the slightest clue what most of those mean -- so we’ll attempt to cut through the mystery of what some of them mean, beginning with the former, LTE.
