Happy Veteran's Day to all of our U.S. readers! The past weekend brought a score of little goodies, so we've managed to pick up all the little scraps that might have otherwise been left behind and assemble them for your reading pleasure on this fine Monday as we celebrate the brave men and women who have served in our military. We salute you!
Well, the MacBook Air didn't get much love during Apple’s recent events, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of deals to go around to get you the lightest, best laptop around. Maybe people aren’t throwing over their Airs for the newest, freshest model like they are for iPads, but that doesn’t mean you’re not ready to rock these bargains.
Apple has focused a lot on color with the release of its latest devices, and now MacRumors reports that Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) has some fascinating information on how each color is faring. The results aren't as accurate as they could be, unfortunately, as factors like the "space gray" iPhone's overwhelming popularity stem partly from the shortages for the gold and silver varieties.
Rather than discount last year’s model with the introduction of the iPhone 5s, Apple opted to replace it—albeit with a gussied-up and slightly tweaked version. Indeed, the iPhone 5c packs nearly all of the same features and internal tech as last year’s iPhone 5, which makes it one heck of an excellent handset in almost every respect, from the glorious four-inch Retina display to the speedy 4G LTE service and stellar 8-megapixel camera.
As hard as it may be to believe, all of the hubbub that surrounded the release of the iPhone 5s now stands over a month behind us.

Is the iPhone 5c living up to Apple's expectations? Outside of its Cupertino headquarters, that's anyone's guess, but a new report claims the company is cutting back on fourth quarter orders for the handsets.
Oh, BlackBerry, you've done it again! The smartphone maker formerly known as Research in Motion has penned an open letter published in major news outlets around the globe to reconfirm that it's not going anywhere — but will it be enough for faithful users to stick it out until the company can reverse its downward slide? Sure, it can say whatever it likes, but users will need to see real results or continue to defect to the iPhone or Android. Read on to find out more, including the fate of the BBM app...
There's been one big question about the iPhone 5c that's been nagging at investors and consumers since it first made its appearance last month — just how well is it selling? We've long seen that the device is available almost everywhere where the iPhone 5s isn't partly because of the sheer numbers produced, but as AllThingsD reports, new research from Consumer Intelligence Research suggests that the story's even trickier than that.
