Apple has just sent out invitations to members of the press for an event on September 12, 2012. The invitation shows a large number “12” with a prominent shadow of a number “5”. It is no question that this event is where Apple will announce the next iPhone, referred to as many as the iPhone 5. After seeing the invitation there is no doubt that the new iPhone will be called the iPhone 5. The event will be held at 10AM Pacific Time (1PM Eastern) at San Francisco’s Buena Center for the Arts.
Rumors and leaks for the iPhone 5 have been all over the internet for the past few months. I don’t think there has been a day when I haven’t seen something about Apple’s upcoming iPhone. There are some things that we know already, it will have a larger touchscreen, 4G LTE connectivity, and a smaller dock connector. Now it is very likely that it will now receive a processor upgrade to an A6 processor.
Sonny Dickson of 9to5Mac tweeted a photo showing a supposed iPhone 5 board containing an A6 chip.
Over the past year or so I have noticed when syncing my iPhone with my PC that data labeled as “Other” was taking up quite a lot of space. I’m not talking about just a few megabytes, I’m talking almost 3 gigabytes! When your iPhone is only 16GB losing 3GB or more is definitely a lot and does not go unnoticed when your iPhone is filled with music, apps and photos. There are many different things that actually could cause your “Other” data to pile up. So in this guide we will go over different solutions to minimize or completely remove the “Other” data on your iPhone. These solutions should also work with your iPad, iPod or any other iOS device.
It seems everyone these days has a smartphone. With the popularity of the iPhone, abundance of Android devices, and the marketing of Windows 7 phones it is unlikely that most people will choose a plain phone over a smartphone. The driving force behind all of the awesome smartphones are the apps. Because of course a smartphone is just a phone without the apps. Summer has just started so here are our favorite apps to make the best out of your summer!

If there is one thing that has always bothered me it was that I have about 6 remotes for everything that is in my home theater setup. This means I have to keep track of all 6 and if I lose one it is a pain. Even a universal remote is something that can easily be lost.
