This morning it's a torrent of magical Apple news, and it's not going to let up all day long, I guarantee it. We're just about this close to a new iPhone and perhaps a new iPad mini as well, and what you're going to find is no less than a billion stories on both coming up in the pipe. Start your journey with the Apple design chief himself talking about how they don't care about money. Check out the iPad mini tipline and factoids on how it might ship in November. Then if you're not in for the long haul with Apple, you might want to check out the relatively bad news coming from HTC on how they're pulling out.

This morning we've got mishaps, leaks, breaks, and hacks galore - it's not like we planned it that way, it's just that there's so much happening it's nuts!

This morning it's a time of easing - but perhaps before the storm, if you know what I mean. It appears that you'll be able to order a MacBook Pro with Retina Display with delivery inside two weeks. On the other hand, the Google Nexus 7 is all but sold out across the whole entire earth! The Canon EOS M is up for pre-order and supplies are already racking up short. There's a transparent Nintendo 3DS XL out there somewhere on the planet, but the company isn't budging on sales.

This morning it's time to continue the epic saga that is the Parisian McDonalds wearable camera incident - with Steve Mann continuing his quest to make AR a reality for the universe. Yahoo is pleading with their staff to "please don't stop" - an odd battle cry if ever have we heard one.

This morning we certainly must be ramping up for something gigantic, because it's all about services, law, and a live stream recovery of a skeleton.

This week we're seeing quite a bit of news on the RIM front, mostly because the heads of the company have been vocal in the face of a possible incoming lawsuit that will be headed by angry investors - bits like We don't build phones in China and re-elections of the board are running wild.
