iPad 5 Thinness and Lightness are Key Selling Points
The new iPad 5 will be released sometime this year. Current rumors point to a fall release. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, the new iPad 5 will dazzle with thinness and lightness. In a note seen by AppleInsider, Kuo says that the new iPad 5 will need less power, allowing Apple to reduce the size of the battery by up to 30%. This and other design changes would allow Apple to make the iPad 5 15% thinner (7.5-8mm) and 25% lighter (500g).
The new iPad 5 is predicted to run on the new A7 CPU bringing more processing power to the flagship tablet.
Kuo sees the iPad mini 2 shipping in the second half of 2013 as well. The iPad mini 2 is set to outsell the 9.7-inch iPad 5 by about 60-65%.

Apple says celebrity accounts were compromised
The attack was described by Apple as "all too common on the Internet." However, the company is denying earlier reports that its iCloud servers and Find my iPhone service were undermined.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
