Another Apple related rumor hints on wireless iPods. Reason for that is the announcement of chip maker PortalPlayer about new chips with Wi-fi and Bluetooth features. PortalPlayer's business is nearly all coming from Apple iPods, it is reasonable to conclude that new iPods will feature wireless headsets and wireless data transfer features. More details on this Apple rumor on the Red Herring.Apple to buy Palm is the 3rd Apple rumor that has appeared last week again. Trigger for that one is that a couple of Palm investors want to sell Palm. I do not think this will happen. Only reason could be that Apple really wants to make an Apple mobilephone and is not able to pull it off by themselves, then the Treo guys could be helpful.

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.
