Doesn't it feel a little bit like the calm before the storm? We pretty much know that OS X Mountain Lion will be arriving on our favorite Mac computer next week unless Apple pulls a rabbit out of its hat later this week, and the tech world is enjoying a somewhat quiet lull otherwise. But that doesn't mean we can't scrounge up some worthy contenders for today's recap, so read on for everything happening this Tuesday, July 17, 2012.
Happy Windows 8 Release Preview day, folks! Microsoft has officially pulled the trigger on its latest version, which appears to be the last step prior to the actual release coming this fall. If that’s not enough to excite you on this fine Thursday, how does a cheap unlocked iPhone 3GS sound? Or maybe some juicy rumors about another release from the folks in Redmond which might come in November?

There’s no denying that Siri is a great addition to the iPhone 4S, but now that Apple removed the free Siri Virtual Assistant app from the App Store, what’s an owner of older hardware to do? Enter Speaktoit, which promises to bring Siri-style technology to iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 users.
My husband and I each have an iPhone 3GS, and neither of them has a camera icon in the Messages app—the only way to send a picture is through email. Is there any way we can send photos in a text message? I think it’s silly that even the simplest cell phones have this option while an iPhone doesn’t!
There’s less than 24 hours before Apple’s big media event on the company’s Cupertino campus and the rumor mill is in high gear. Here’s all the news you need to know for Monday, October 3, conveniently put together in one place!
Okay, let’s be honest here: You read this site frequently (we hope!), so you probably know that a new iPhone 5 is just around the corner. So would you really want a two-year old iPhone 3GS, even if it was free with two-year contract? Best Buy is hoping the answer to that question is “yes.”
