Well, we're entering the home stretch of the last few weeks before the release of the iPhone 6. Have the spate or articles and leaks and so on dampened enthusiasm or stoked it? Guess we'll find out soon enough. At the very least, this week's been heavy on the iPhone 6 "news" so let's see what we have in the hopper for Labor Day weekend.
So what does Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple, think of the "wearables" category of technology, which the so-called "iWatch" will join when it's presumably announced on September 9? "I feel that wearables are a hard sell," he says. "Woz" explained his beliefs further in a recent interview shortly after word leaked that we would probably be seeing the long-awaited smartwatch next month after all.
Hey, open source enthusiasts! Want to know how long it takes for Apple to release its source codes to the public? Judging from an announcement from the Computer History Museum and the DigiBarn Computer Museum (via MacRumors), it's around 35 years. As of today, the two museums worked together with Apple to make the 1978 Apple II DOS source code available for non-commercial use for the first time.
Like vintage Apple hardware--so much that you scoff at the idea of a mere photo book of past devices? MacRumors reports that German auction house Breker has a deal for you in the form of one of the 50 original Apple 1 units sold by The Byte Shop, Apple's first retailers.

So how about that PlayStation 4, huh? Sony held a big event Wednesday night to announce its next-generation entertainment console, but neglected to show it to anyone, let alone offer up a price or release date. Maybe they're taking an anti-Apple approach? Guess we'll see how that works out for them, but from where we sit, seems as if the once-mighty CE giant seems to just be trying to get in line ahead of Xbox rival Microsoft…
Apple is taking an increasing amount of heat for falling behind the competition where its iPhone is concerned, but a new report claims Cupertino may step up its game with not one but two new models this year.
Recently, we reported that one (of two) Steve Jobs biopics in the works would premiere during the Sundance Film Festival. Well, it looks like we'll all have a chance to see how well Ashton Kutcher portrays the late Apple CEO when JOBS hits theaters on April 19.
Happy iPhone 5 preorder day! If you're reading this in the afternoon, that means you probably stayed up late trying to preorder your shiny new handset right when the virtual stores opened at 12:01am PST, and we're kind of bleary-eyed from doing the same. So let's cut this short and recap what happened while you were(n't) sleeping, shall we?
