iPhone 5 Model A1429 gives you Global LTE Coverage?
Apple unveiled the iPhone 5 today and it supports indeed 4GLTE. Apple made a point in the presentation that LTE is a mess. On the iPhone 5 LTE page you can see which carriers are supported in which countries. There are two different iPhone 5 hardware models. The A1428 (GSM) works with AT&T, Bell, Rogers, Telus,
The iPhone 5 A1429 (CDMA) only works with Sprint, Verizon and KDDI. The iPhone 5 A1429 (GSM) works in Germany, United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong and Singapore. As you notice the Verizon iPhone 5 has the same hardware model number as the German Telekom one. Does that mean you can use 4G LTE, but not 3G in Germany with a Verizon phone? Or does it work? I guess we have to wait until the dust settles to find out which iPhone 5 is more global in terms of 4G LTE.

NFL's Personal Conduct Policy Stiffened
The NFL stiffened its personal conduct policy -- which covers assault, battery and domestic violence -- on Aug. 28. The first offense is subject to a six-game suspension without pay. A second offense will result in a lifetime ban from the NFL.
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.
