Apple’s “iPad Mini” will hit the stages in October, after the new iPhone’s release

iPad Mini next to iPhone

Apple has always tried to become the first at everything. This time, it’s different as Apple has decided to copy the whole Amazon and Google’s 7inch tablet idea. With that in mind, the iPad mini will be released sometime in October after an iPhone debut (rumored at Sept.12).  Apple’s reason for separating the release dates are unknown. Probably their idea of how to increase profit margins for the new iPhone and iPad. What do you think?

Apple and Samsung both guilty of patent infringement rules South Korean court

Apple and Samsung are both companies that love suing each other, hoping for a chance to increase their profit margins. This wasn’t the case today, as both Apple and Samsung were found guilty of patent infringement, claims the South Korean court. The verdict rules that Apple owes Samsung $35,000 and Samsung owes Apple $22,000. The funny things about the verdict is that both companies spend hundreds of thousands of dollars just on lawyers. So in the end they both lost, and entertained the blogsphere. However, on the other side of the world in California, Apple is suing Samsung for over $2.5 billion dollars. So at the end of the day, the ruling basically made a joke out of two giant egoistic companies.

Apple has decided to ditch Google one more time. After removing Google’s maps feature on the new IOS6, Apple has decided to remove YouTube on the pre-installed app list too. This means that Apple has only one more thing to cross off before it officially divorces Google. Search engine. That means that it’s possible that Apple is working on a secret search engine. However, you shouldn’t worry if your a Google die-hard fan, as all those apps will now appear on the App Store, including the new Chrome browser.

Apple has decided to reinvent its whole new line with a new dock connector

Time and time again, Apple decides to reinvent. What is Apple reinventing now, you ask? Will the latest rumors claim that they will be changing from a 30 pin dock connector to something smaller. This is big news, as this will mean that Apple will have to update all of its mobile products (IPhone, IPad, IPod) and cause a huge headache for a lot of accessory manufacturers. Furthermore, some people are speculating that this dock connector will be a mini USB as the majority of mobile products out there use it (Android in particular). Whether this rumor is true or not, we will all be anticipating for Apple’s new lineup which should debut sometime in early September.
