Recently, Google updated its globe-trotting Google Earth app to include 3D views of select major cities. Android users had already received the update a month prior, but now, certain iOS devices can fly around inside realistic cities, as well.

If it's not yet clear that a new iPhone is coming soon, look no further than Sprint, who is following up its recent online-only $50 discount on the current iPhone 4S with yet another enticement to buy now.

And a digital wallet has near-unlimited storage space, while the Q Card is too bulky if you carry more than two.
Fortune reported this morning that William Blair's Anil Doradla noted to company clients that the iPhone is no longer the bestseller at Verizon for the first time since February 2011, when it first started offering the smartphone.

I love mechanical keyboards. I love the way my fingers spring off the keys, and I love the clickety-clack noise I make while I’m typing away--it’s the sound of productivity, as if I’m at The New York Times belting out a breaking story.
