It’s Friday, September 23 and that means the fall season has officially arrived on the calendar -- and with it will soon come iOS 5, iCloud, iTunes Match and another update to OS X Lion to help tie it all together on the Mac side. As proof that it’s getting closer, Apple pushed out a new OS X 10.7.2 build to developers on Thursday with what appears to be final release notes.
Apple is seriously breaking with tradition this year, throwing fans and tech press alike a giant curveball as the month of September winds to a close without the company’s annual media event. But sit tight -- according to sources, we’ll probably see invites flowing to the media within the next week, with the big event scheduled for October 4.
It’s simply amazing how all over the place rumors of Apple’s next handset have become -- what’s news one morning often gets snuffed out later that day with a completely contradictory rumor. Such is the case with the iPhone 5, which may miss its fall debut completely due to production delays.
There’s some fierce competition between hard drive manufacturers, and Hitachi isn’t going to let Seagate enjoy the 4TB spotlight for even a full week. The company’s G-Technology division has introduced their own 4TB disk and is packing two of them inside a whopping 8TB G-RAID external case complete with Thunderbolt.
We hope you’re not too sick of iPhone 5 rumors, because here comes another one! The unannounced handset seems to be all anyone wants to talk about right now, with even the otherwise lackluster news that the handset is now being manufactured starting to make headlines.
Look, anyone outside of the secret circle at Apple Inc. who tells you the iPhone 5 is coming soon probably doesn’t know what they’re talking about. About the only real clue is the promised fall arrival of iOS 5, which is unlikely to be released without new hardware to complement it -- but bear with us as we chat up another new rumor anyway.
Ever since Apple declared this year’s WWDC a software-only event, rumors have persisted that the next iPhone would be unveiled in September. That changes today, with a new report claiming those rumors are false -- the real release won’t come until October.

Don’t tell Apple). But we want to know what’s in your library. So comment below with the total number of apps in your library, and a list of your top ten most-used apps.
