It’s 11/11/11, which just so happens to also be Veteran’s Day here in these United States of America, It’s also a Friday, which means most of us are ready to eject the grueling memories of another work week and enjoy the weekend. But first, let’s take a moment and give some thanks to all of the veterans who have made such freedom possible in the first place -- and before you slam the office door behind you, read on for some of the other things making news on this Friday, November 11, 2011.
Good news everyone! Not only did you read that in Professor Farnsworth's voice, but now you can update your iPhone 4S to iOS 5.0.1 and rid of those nasty battery issues. The software update includes fixes for the "bugs affecting battery life", adds multitaking gestures for the original iPad, resolves bugs with Documents in iCloud, and improves voice recognition for you Aussies Down Under. Solid!
The iOS 5 update is available to everyone with an iPhone 3GS and above, or iPod touch 3rd-gen and above. Enjoy!

Apple did it to us again, issuing both an iOS 5.0.1 beta and a new iTunes 10.5.1 beta 2 with iTunes Match after the daily recap went live on Wednesday -- and seriously bumming out everyone who’s been waiting for that “late October” launch of the $24.99 per year service. Meanwhile, all eyes are on Amazon as they prepare to ship the Kindle Fire in two weeks. Here’s what’s making headlines across the internet for this Thursday, November 3, 2011.
