Now here's an unfortunate case of being the wrong brand at the wrong time: The CEO of ISIS Mobile Wallet announced Monday that the company is planning to rebrand as a result of the conflict taking place in Iraq. As you may recall, a militant group called the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria has also been frequently referenced by the acronym ISIS, and the mobile wallet service is apparently uncomfortable with such an association. No word on what the new brand will be as yet, but while you're guessing, have a look back at our recap of the last 24 hours!
It's been one of those good news, bad news kind of weekends. For Target shoppers, it's potentially one of the latter, while present and future Aereo customers fall more squarely in the former category, assuming the nation's most important court weighs in its favor. Ready to find out more? Dig in your virtual heels and jump head-first into our weekend recap...
This week's stories are about resurrection of old names, how one company pivoted in the face of the iPhone's awesome-sauce, the unveiling of some new amazingness we've all been waiting for plus the newest games of the week and a few apps that might just keep you sane these last few weeks of the year.

That story and a handful of new product info kicks off our Wednesday morning news coverage!
Grabbed a new iPad Air over the weekend and now unsure what to do with your old model? Target and NextWorth are offering a pretty good deal through Saturday that could put at least $200 in your pocket.
If you're planning to skip the iPad Air tomorrow in favor of a swanky new iPad mini with Retina Display sometime later in November, one retailer thinks they may know when Apple will actually release it.
Happy Columbus Day to American readers, and happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian neighbors! It's already the middle of October and a relatively quiet weekend on the tech front, but if the rumor mill is to be believed, we'll have one more round of Apple product announcements before the month is out to get us through the 2013 holiday season. So without further ado, here's what's making news over the weekend...
