Apple seems to have lost something in the last few months. Their products are as great as ever, antenna issue notwithstanding, but their gift for secrecy is slipping. iLounge reports that a very reliable source has informed them of several of Apple's 2010-2011 plans. First off are three new iPods, due out by late September at the latest. One is a new iPod touch, the other is a nano, and the third is a shuffle replacement with a 1.7" display.
One of those iPods may pack a 3" display. That seems unlikely to be the touch, as it would mean a half-inch decrease in screen real estate. Apple also may have an iPadmini planned. This slate would pack a 7" display and could be ready later this year or in early 2011. There are also rumors (and take these with a HUGE grain of salt) that a new iPhone will launch as quickly as January. Apparently, Apple wants to wash away the bad taste the latest iPhone left in some people's mouth.
Apple is also working on a new bumper. This is all silicone and will cost less to produce than the current crop of bumpers.

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.
