Apple readying Ultimate iPad with 128GB storage?

Just when we thought we had Apple’s iDevice launch pattern nailed down, it throws a spanner in the works with the iPad mini and iPad 4, not to mention those rumours of a summer iPhone 5S launch.

As such, we’re not sure when to expect the next iPad/new new new iPad/fifth generation iPad, but we’re told that a 128GB model is – or might be – in the works.

Sunday again for the Review of the week? Sunday? This is becoming a bit of a habit. But I kinda like it. I trust you’re all watching Scotland’s Andy Murray in le tennis final as I write.

Anyway! Plenty of pre-MWC leaks, rumours and announcements this week, and the story with the most comments was… *drum roll*… O2 loves the environment, sells 82% of HTC One X+ phones without charger, from last Saturday.

Apple shares drop 11% after selling 47.8 million iPhones

It’s been all doom and gloom for Apple of late, with tumbling shares, and iPhone profits having “likely peaked”, and its online services being slated by some guy… The list goes on.

Any way you look at it, Apple’s Q4 results make for impressive reading, but it’s still not good enough for ye olde stock market.

Siri almost made it to Android before Apple swooped in

There was a time not so long ago when Siri was making headlines on an almost daily basis. Remember Funny sh*t with Siri? And Apple insists Siri is not anti-abortion?

Apple’s voice recognition/personal assistant nonsense has been keeping a fairly low profile of late, but now we’re told it very nearly made the jump to Android before Apple snapped up the tech.

iPhone 5S rumours hit new heights of craziness, get ready for the iPhone ‘Math’

iPhone 5S rumours hit new heights of craziness, get ready for the iPhone ‘Math’

If you’ll allow us to bask in our collective glory for a moment, we’ve let a fair few iPhone 5S rumours fly by of late, partly because they’re mostly saying the same thing, and partly because some of ‘em are clearly nonsense.

But this one – this one right here – clearly takes the proverbial biscuit. If it comes true, I’ll eat Jan’s bass guitar.

Uhm, slightly later than billed (hey, even I have a life at the weekend… sometimes), it’s the – who knows? – 83rd(?) Review of the week. You all know the moves to this one, right?

Mostest comments, this week, goes to Teenagers: Apple is done. Admittedly, a good handful of the comments surrounded a terrible joke from AhmadCentral, who left the chat but subsequently forgot his coat. Honestly, you couldn’t make this stuff up.

How to activate iOS emoticons

It might surprise you to learn that despite my being a writer or blogger or random scribbler (or whatever the hell I am), I’m actually incredibly fond of “smilies”/emoticons/emoji – call them what you will. I do, however, draw the line well before “RAOFLMAO” :-P

Where were we? Ah yes! There’s no shortage of emoticon apps for iOS, but what you mightn’t know is that there are tons of the little guys already on your iDevice, just waiting to be activated.

I’m struggling to recall the last time we wrote anything decidedly positive about Apple. These days it’s all about tumbling shares and peaking profits and reduced orders.

Buzz Marketing is sticking the boot in too, with teenagers reportedly telling them that Apple is old news.

Apple slashes Q1 iPhone 5 screen orders in half

We haven’t heard a great deal about iPhone 5 sales figures beyond the opening weekend, but there are signs that iPhone mania might finally be slowing down. Maybe.

A couple of different sources report that Apple has cut Q1 orders for iPhone 5 parts rather significantly.

We won’t lie to you; we took our foot off the gas somewhat over the festive season. Not that we had much choice. But we well and truly made up for it this week, largely thanks to the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

Anything worth talking about? A few bits and pieces, yeah. And hey, there were a few other stories outwith Vegas, too. Check it out.
