It's the start of a new week, and the next-generation iPhone still isn't here, which means it's time for another new iPhone 5 rumor. This one pushes back the date of the launch (not announcement, mind you) to October. The latest rumor comes from AllThingsD, via a typical anonymous sources situation. Word is that even if the reports of AT&T... Read more...
We noted earlier that it seemed that AT&T Wireless' move toward data throttling for its highest 5 percent of end users could, in fact, act to push some of those grandfathered unlimited users to data tiers. Here's another move that could do so, if true. The new report concerns Apple's FaceTime video calling service. Reportedly, despite... Read more...

More possible confirmation on iPhone 4S / 5 (or both) release in the September / October timeframe is coming via vacation blackouts, something that Apple, AT&T and Verizon have done in the past when prior iPhones have released. One example from earlier this year was the Verizon iPhone launch, before which Apple and Verizon were reported... Read more...

AT&T is rumored to be implementing a data throttling program set to begin in the first week of October. The change would apply only to its top users, and would in that way be similar to the program already in place at Verizon Wireless (.PDF). That could point to potential timing for an iPhone 5 launch: last year, AT&T implemented data... Read more...
Pegatron has won a bidding war with Foxconn, and will be the exclusive manufacturer that Apple uses for the iPad 3. It was announced earlier this month that Pegatron had won an order for 15 million iPhone 5s from Apple, as well. The report comes from the Taiwan Economic News. The report used the word "outbid," which might mean that Pegatron... Read more...
On the same day a high-level LulzSec "operative" was arrested, Anonymous and LulzSec announced #OpPayPal, a method to get back at online payment service PayPal without hacking, and legally. #OpPayPal might be called an offshoot of the previous #AntiSec movement by Anonymous and LulzSec. Posting on their site of choice, pastebin, the two hacker... Read more...
U.K. authorities arrested one of the higher-profile members of LulzSec on Wednesday, a 19-year-old known as "Topiary" online, in Scotland's Shetland Islands.  LulzSec is a hacker group that announced it was quitting in late June, but which then resurfaced in the middle of this month.  Back in June, Topiary said he wasn't worried...

Radioshack announced yesterday that it will be dumping T-Mobile for Verizon, causing another blow to the nation's #4 wireless carrier. With Verizon being the nation's No. 1 carrier (at least until AT&T's proposed acquisition of T-Mobile is complete), the move makes sense. Verizon's customer base is 3x that of T-Mobile's. In addition,... Read more...
Chinese officials have ordered the closure two "counterfeit" Apple stores in Kunming, after investigating all the shops in the southwestern China city.   Originally, it was reported that three elaborately camouflaged fake Apple Stores existed in the city, however after officials performed inspections it turned out there were a total...

The latest information on an iPhone 4S / 5 launch seems to be pointing to an announcement toward the end of August, with a launch by mid-September. The timeline, which BGR implies comes from an AT&T source, says that AT&T has has begun communicating launch plans internally within the company. It has also told employees to complete...

Dell has quietly pulled the Streak 5 tablet from its website and from any retail stores, as well. It's not a recall per se, but it's believed that Dell is making changes and improvements to the product, unrelated to the software (i.e., hardware). For a while, consumers could still find the item on Dell's site, but if they tried to order it,... Read more...
