It's Friday once again folks, with most of you already enjoying the weekend. Today, the iPhone 5 launched in 22 additional regions around the world, setting Apple's plan to have it in over 100 countries by the end of the year on track. Apple CEO Tim Cook apologized for the sad state of Apple Maps today (recommending some other Maps apps in the process), and we took a closer look at his words in a new column. Even more surprising is the fact that the iOS App Store now features a download page specifically for other Maps applications.

Qualcomm introduced a pair of new processors for mobile devices today, and a series of new iPhone patents deals with things like disappearing buttons, 3D displays, and invisible speakers.

We've made it through hump day, which means only two more work days to go before the weekend arrives again. Yesterday, we found out about a hack that was resetting Samsung Galaxy S IIIs to their factory settings. Samsung said that the security hole had since been fixed, but today we heard that the remote hack isn't limited to just Samsung devices. The iPhone 5 might be heading to China soon, and we heard that Apple's new Lightning connector isn't identical on both sides. Google maps is rumored to be hitting iOS 6 by the end of the year, which goes hand-in-hand with new report that claims Apple ditched Google Maps because it doesn't offer turn-by-turn navigation.

We've entered the last full week of September, which means that autumn, pumpkins, and little children asking for free candy are all in the near future (for some of us anyway).

Some enthusiastic analysts were left explaining their generous iPhone 5 sales predictions today, while others were saying that the iPhone 5 could top 50 million sales by the end of Q4.

Friday is here once again, which means that for many of us, the weekend has already started. Of course, today was the big iPhone 5 launch, and there was no lack of news stories to go along with it. Before the iPhone 5 landed in the US, it launched in the UK and Japan and was greeted by long lines. We also had a couple of drop tests hit the Internet - in the first one we saw, the iPhone 5 didn't fare too well, but in the second drop test, it emerged victorious over the Samsung Galaxy S III. We also talk about all of the different options you have on your disposal on this launch day, so if you're thinking of picking up an iPhone 5, be sure to check that out.

Welcome to Thursday evening folks - just one more day until the weekend is officially here. iOS 6 has been out for a little more than a day now, and while there are a lot of new features to get excited about, Apple's new Maps app seems to be spoiling the party. Many are bummed that Apple Maps doesn't feature public transportation routes like Google Maps, and a group of developers set out to solve that problem with a new hack. Meanwhile, Nokia took a few shots at Apple Maps today, and we found out that iOS 6 landed on 15% of all Apple devices within the first 24 hours of release.

Welcome to Monday evening, folks.
