iPhone 5 hardware tipped to include Samsung processor

iPhone 5 hardware tipped to include Samsung processor

It appears today that Samsung is indeed inside the next iPhone if a leaked Beta version of iOS 6 is to be believed. This version of Apple's mobile operating system is being run by the folks at 9to5mac who also note that they've got the software running on an iPhone today, it showing off Darwin Kernel Version 13.0.0 and signs of an ARM S5L8950X processor from Samsung. This basic confirmation that Samsung is in the next Apple mobile device takes rumors that Apple was moving away from Samsung parts in their devices and puts the processor portion, at least, to rest as a falsehood.

SpaceX’s Elon Musk: “it’s like seeing your kid come home”

In it's historic first-ever mission lead by a private company accessing the Internationl Space Station, the SpaceX group have now not only delivered their cargo, but have safely returned their newest Dragon model spacecraft back to the planet as well.

SpaceX is at the head of these feats, with CEO Elon Musk greeting the pod as it splashed down in the Pacific Ocean earlier today: "welcome home baby."

Pre-Paid Leap iPhone not exactly cheap

Pre-Paid Leap iPhone not exactly cheap

Today we're finding that the idea of a pre-paid, no-contract iPhone is something that is driving the news media, but not necessarily customers, right up the wall. Reactions this week appear to be stemming from the unspoken rule that Apple's selection of approved carriers for the iPhone is a near-impossible cookie to crack. What we're finding here on Cricket is that there's certainly nothing to get excited about, especially given the similarities between this carrier's pricing and the prices users pay through every other outlet.

ASUS teases dual-boot Android Windows 8 machine for Computex

ASUS teases dual-boot Android Windows 8 machine for Computex

This year at Computex we're likely going to be seeing a dual-booting Android / Windows 8 device coming from ASUS, the company that brought you the dual-device PadFone last year at this same event. The device we'll be looking at will likely have much of the same impact of that device - that device having gone through quite a few revisions before hitting the market in the end with just Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich rather than its original Android 3.0 Honeycomb/Gingerbread combination. What we're expecting this time instead of a phone that plugs into a tablet is a tablet that plugs into a notebook - dual-booting Windows 8 and Android 4.0 might mean a whole new generation of ASUS Transformer Pads for the world by the end of the year.

Today information leading to the release of Microsoft's ubiquitious Office suite of apps has been leaked with November 10th being the big drop-off point. This release date has been leaked by a source familiar with the matter to The Daily where they've also learned that Office Mobile has nearly wrapped work on the actual final version of the application.

Steve Lee on Project Glass: “people don’t even notice it”

Speaking this week on the Google X device he himself is heading up, Project Glass, Steve Lee commented on wearing the device in the real world. He spoke this week with Fast Company on the many ins and outs the team had to go through before even wearing it out of the building - "we had to keep it confidential and within the confines of our [Google] office building. And trust me, that's frustrating" - then went into post-announcement testing. "I've personally been wearing it everyday out in the real world. I even took it into a San Francisco bar to test out that social situation"
