It has been a busy week in the world of Applerumors and announcements, but a few things stood out as the top news stories for the company.
-Is Sapphire On The Horizon?
The sapphire screens believed to be used in the upcoming iPhone 6 has been a bit of a mystery. Some have said that it will be included on both models, while some believe that it will be exclusive to the larger. Supply orders potentially point to a single model, although there could be more orders that have yet to be officially reported.
-The Apple Book Subscription
Apple purchase Booklamp without much fanfare this week. This is exciting due to the fact that they seem to be working on a new subscription service that will recommend new books, music, and even podcasts to consumers. The Book Genome Project is the primary development of Booklamp, which will work well with the algorithms created by Beats and Swell.
-Older iPhones Getting Slower?
Constant speculation has centered around whether or not iPhones get slower as they are replaced by newer models. A recent report said that Apple is intentionally doing this, but it was also revealed that this could be a psychological effect of Apple customers thinking about how much faster a new phone would be.
The week has been an eventful one, but we will still have the official announcements in September to look forward to. Stay tuned next week for another round of rumors.
Kim Kardashian Leaked Photos Backlash
We have a new celebrity nude photo scandal this weekend. A hacker has published nude photos of Kim Kardashian and others on 4Chan. The internet seems though to have no sympathies for Kim Kardashian's violation of privacy.
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.
