    Try as they might, Apple can't hide everything. Although the notoriously secretive company rarely dishes on unannounced projects, sometimes they don't have to for us to pick up on clues regarding forthcoming product releases, refreshes, or updates. The latest nugget of knowledge comes from the first beta of iOS 5.

    According to a developer at iFans, references to an "iPod 4,2" have been ...

    Yesterday I had the pleasure of sitting down with Jon Chong the co-founder of CaseFactori, a new iDevice case company.

    While Chong and fellow founder CheeKian Teng (C.K. for short) do turn out some nicely made iDevice cases, their inspiration runs a little deeper. The two have combined their love of iDevices and their passion for giving back into a single company.

    Their motto: A case with a cause.

    Every customer who purchases a case from CaseFactori gets to choose which charity a small portion ...

If you're unfamiliar, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group guides the development of standards and licensing for bluetooth technology. So from the organization's perspective, having the sage input of knowledgeable board ...
