What's this? Still no OS X Mountain Lion? Fear not, Mac lovers -- it's only Monday, the week is young and there's plenty of other tech news brewing to read about. Why, just look at the next page right here… we've got five groovy stories to cap off the day, so why not dive in and find out what's making headlines for this Monday, July 23, 2012?
Apple CEO Tim Cook and company have yet to step onstage to announce this year's iPhone and already, some entrepreneurial companies in the Far East are taking the hard-earned yuan of their fellow Chinese and sticking it away in their own pockets, promising to one day hook them up with an iPhone 5. If that isn't sad enough, we've got some rumblings of a couple of App Store favorites that may be on life support and more for this Thursday, July 12, 2012.
The iPhone 5 hasn't been officially announced yet, but one of the persistent rumors is that it'll have a 16:9 aspect ratio, stretching the current 960x640 screen to 1136x640, adding 176 extra pixels. This isn't a big deal for scrolling apps, but what about games, which tend to be full-screen, making every pixel count? We asked some developers to comment on the rumor.
A mere three weeks after WWDC, details of the rumored iPhone 5 have already begun to unravel. Early this morning, 9to5Mac reported on the heavily rumored iPhone and Near Field Communication (NFC) hardware combination. Seth Weintraub reports that not only will the iPhone 5 have a bigger display but that it will also include an NFC chip, which has become a popular staple in the Android sphere.
If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, that’s no guarantee it really is a duck. But when it looks like a duck, too? Well, then we’d probably want to start calling it a duck. Oh, and by the way: We’re not talking about ducks here, we’re talking about an iPhone 5.
The rumors certainly seem to be stacking up in favor of a sixth-generation iPhone with a larger display this year, but while analysts pontificate about Apple fending off big-screen Android handsets, the real reason may be something far more practical.
Just like your Memorial Day picnic, today's Hottest News is a little of this and a little of that. So get yourself a big plate of mashed jailbreak potatoes, a side dish of free apps, and a bowl of iPhone 5 rumors. Then settle back to watch the cats play with iOS devices and enjoy.
