Which iPad Mini Rumor To Believe? Maybe Both
August 1, 2013 | 9:38 pm

iPad MiniI love watching dueling rumors. We’ll see an iPad mini with Retina display before the end of the year. No, we’ll see one more mini with the normal display, but a faster processor. Actually, what’s interesting about these two articles is that, if you dig a bit deeper and pay attention, they might actually be saying the same thing. While the headline for The Next Web piece says, “Apple will reportedly use retina display from Samsung for its next iPad Mini to be launched in Q4,” let’s do that digging I mentioned.

OK, folks—this is something seriously cool. Over at The Next Web (and Liliputing, and probably a million other tech-obsessed sites and blogs by the end of the day), there's a recently-published post about a new app known as WindowsAndroid that actually allows you to run an Android operating system (Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0, to be specific) "as a native application on your Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8 machine," according to the TNW post.

Apple leaks mention of iBooks 3.0, reinforcing iPad mini focus on e-books
October 21, 2012 | 2:30 pm

  The appearance of the yet unreleased "iBooks 3.0" as a requirement for certain titles in Apple's iBookstore suggests the company will soon update its ebook client app for iOS, likely in conjunction with the release of iPad mini. According to a report by The Next Web, there is already at least one title in the French iTunes Store specifying iBooks 3.0. Under the title's "Requirements," which are generated by Apple and not potentially a third party developer's typo, iTunes specifies, "This book requires iBooks 3.0 or later and iOS 4.2 or later. The books can be displayed with iBooks on an iPad, iPhone (3G or...

September 2, 2012 | 3:02 pm

From the Never-Ending Rumor Mill Department this afternoon comes the story of an anonymously-sourced article that appeared in last Thursday's edition of the San Jose Mercury-News. The story, which also ran in the Guardian and numerous other print and online publications, suggests that Google CEO Larry Page and Apple CEO Tim Cook "had a phone conversation last week," following Apple's $1.05 billion win over Samsung. Reuters reporters Alexei Oreskovic and Poornima Gupta appear to have been the team that broke the story; the following quote, regarding the possible subject of Page and Cook's discussion, comes from their report: "One possible scenario under consideration could be a truce involving disputes over basic...
