Get ready to line up; another Apple event is just around the corner.

Apple is hosting an event in San Francisco on October 23 and analysts are expecting another big product announcement. Fresh off the heels of the iPhone 5 this big unveil will most likely be the mini iPad.

For months people have been predicting that the tech powerhouse will release a smaller, less costly version of the tablet to take on competing devices. These include Amazon’s Kindle Fire and Google’s Nexus 7.

Both of those devices have 7 inch screens and sell for just under $200. One Wall Street analyst says he has already had the chance to test out the mini iPad. He says it is 7.85 inches and offers customers a more mobile experience.  read more »

Apple is heading in a new direction with their maps app.

Since the iPhone 5 was launched on the eager audience complaints have come rolling in about the maps feature. These included things such as melted bridges, closed restaurants and farms being listed as airports. Even CEO Tim Cook admitted the blunder issuing an apology to loyal Apple fans and promising a quick solution.

And to find that solution the company is looking to its blue shirted hourly employees. According to a new report from Mac Rumors multiple Apple stores are devoting forty staff hours per week to fixing the maps problem. This means teams of employees will be hitting the streets double checking the apps accuracy and making sure the burger restaurant it says is on the corner isn't really a bank.  read more »

It seems the big apple is not very apple friendly.

According to a New York City daily web-blog; the city’s police department is reporting a spike in Apple product related crime. Police say over the last year crimes involving Apple have increased by more than 40%. A rate that is ten times larger than the overall crime increase which stands at just 4%.

New York police attribute the spree to the soaring popularity of Apple products and the recent release of the iPhone 5. Sneaking up behind someone and stealing their new phone is more appealing to law breaking citizens then standing in line and paying full price.  read more »
