iPhone 5s in gold first to sell out: reports of boosted production

iPhone 5s in gold first to sell out: reports of boosted production

Starting at 8AM local time here in the United States (that's local whatever time zone you're in), the iPhone 5s will be going on sale - and at midnight (this morning) the iPhone 5s in gold was the first to start flying off digital shelves. It's become readily apparent not only online, where at Apple's online store you'll find the gold iPhone 5s kicked back to a general October ship date, but in store openings across the nation (through mountain time, at this point) that the gold iPhone 5s is headed for short supply.

Late last night, the online Apple Store quietly went down momentarily, provoking speculation as to what the company was updating. Of course, we haven't heard anything recently about an update to their product line (or at least an update that didn't warrant an event), so we assumed it was merely just a site redesign of sorts, and it turns that's exactly what it was.

Apple now selling wall-mountable iMacs for $40 extra

Apple now selling wall-mountable iMacs for $40 extra

One problem with the new iMacs was that there was no easy way to mount the all-in-one to the wall, since they didn't support a standard VESA mount. A lot of users like to save desk space and stick their displays to the wall, but there was really no easy way to go about that with the new iMac, unless you could do a bit of clever hacking. However, Apple has released an option specifically for that niche and is now offering iMacs with a built-in VESA wall mount adapter.

The Apple Shop name change: computer giant it isn’t

The Apple Shop name change: computer giant it isn’t

Today an announcement has been made that the cider and apple-related food and goods store "The Apple Shop", located in Norwich, England, will be changing its name after several years of calls by Apple computers users looking for technical support. And yes, today is indeed a slow news day, if you were wondering. The owner of this institution Geoff Fisher has spoken with the BBC saying that he's making the name change after 20 years with the same name of his own accord - and he's not mad about it.
