It’s been quite a busy Monday evening since our daily recap was put to bed, particularly for those waiting on the rumored iPad 3 next month. A rumor about the announcement date was quickly confirmed, followed by additional confirmation that the next iPad will come packing 4G LTE for AT&T and Verizon.
Does the FBI have a file on all of us? Some conspiracy theorists believe so, but it should probably come as no surprise to discover that the Feds definitely had one on the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, dating back to 1991. Curious to read what it says? Thankfully, the 191-page document is now available for all to read, complete with redacted segments. But that’s just the icing on the cake for what’s been happening since this morning -- here’s a look at what else is making news for Thursday, February 9, 2012.
The near-mythical iPad 3 is coming, and while no one outside of Apple knows exactly when, it’s a pretty good guess that it will be announced in the next few weeks and likely in stores a week or two after that. AllThingsD, however, claims to have a source that’s pinpointing it just a little bit closer.
That surge of Twitter activity this evening was the internet going ape for Facebook’s new IPO filing today in an effort to raise $5 billion. Hey, good luck with that, guys… we’re just hoping all that cash will bring some much-needed fixes to the website, but Zuck probably has some other cool stuff in mind. Oh, and don’t forget to download Mac OS X 10.7.3 which finally hit Software Update today -- and while you’re downloading, maybe catch up on the rest of the news for Wednesday, February 1, 2012.

As we all wait to see what Apple might have its sleeve for up-ending the education market on Thursday, the rumors are already swirling around the New York City media event -- as if the world needs more evidence that anything related to Apple can really stir up the tech press! And that’s not all: A Japanese blog is predicting an iPad 3 media event just two or three weeks from now, if you believe that kind of stuff. So let’s put on our tinfoil hats and delve deep into what’s making news for this terrific Tuesday, January 17, 2012.
It’s been something of a long week, especially for those trotting around in the Las Vegas desert for the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show, which wraps up today. As we sit back and reflect on the week’s events, let’s take in a few more tidbits of news from the last 24 hours, including the troubled launch of the iPhone 4S in mainland China, kudos for Tiffen at CES, Apple’s supplier responsibility report and more for this fine Friday, January 13, 2012. Watch out for those ladders and black cats, folks!
Wow, another week has come and gone, just like that! By this time next week, the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show will be winding down in Las Vegas and we’ll all be giddy about the new stuff to look forward to later this year (or alternately, seriously depressed that we can’t afford it). But before you get a full-on dose of CES fever all next week, it’s time to hunker down and ingest some of the tech news that’s making waves on this fine Friday, January 6, 2012.
According to sources at All Things D, Apple is allegedly planning an important, small-scale event that will be held in New York at the end of this month. The site posits that it will be a "media-related announcement."
Hmm, related to media you say? Well, we've already got a pretty hefty music, movie, and e-book distribution platform in place with iTunes. It's possible, according to our Rumor-O-Tron, that Apple will finally make the announcement it's entering the television game.
The little black box known as the second-generation Apple TV must be feeling mighty neglected of late, with speculation running rampant that Cupertino is in the throes of creating an honest-to-God, full-fledged television set -- or at least a baby step by introducing television functionality to the iMac. But what would a true “Apple TV” (“iTV”) need to succeed? Journey with us now as we join the speculation.
