Despite its usual brevity, Apple's event invite this morning leaves a lot to chew on.
It goes without saying that the tag line "Let's talk iPhone" spells out that we'll be seeing the new phone from the company. The question is if there will be two new phones, something Apple's never done.
Also unclear is whether Apple plans to skip an update to its iPod line ahead of the holiday season, and if the "let's talk iPhone" tag line might also be talking about the much-rumored enhancements to Apple's Voice … Read more

The latest reports and rumors in the world of Apple purport that the company is planning a media event for September 7 and may unveil a free "iCloud iPhone" alongside its standard iPhone 5.
Japanese tech news site Kodawarisan (English version) says that Apple will announce its new lineup of iPods at the September 7 event. That's around the same date that Apple typically shows off its new iPods, though last year the company kicked off the event slightly earlier in the month, on September 1.
Many of us spend so much time at our computers that it only makes sense to have a desktop reminder program; they can let us know when it's time for a meeting, prompt us to make an important phone call, or keep track of anything else that might slip our minds. There are plenty of programs available that can perform this task, and AniReminder is one that takes a lighter approach than most.
