iPad mini unveiling likely to be October 23

image

 
News of the enigmatic iPad mini has been filled with some of the most back and forth, on again/off again rumors in recent history of Apple product releases. In fact, I'd have to look back to 2007, when the rumor mill was in full grind over the purported existence of the original iPhone to find a time when an Apple product was shrouded in this much secrecy and uncertainty.
 
With rumors swirling for months about the actuality of the iPad mini, and most recently, pointing to specific release dates this month, it’s no wonder the Apple community is waiting with bated breath for some official word from Cupertino. Well, I'm not saying you can stop holding your breath just yet, however, AllThingsD has encouraging news this morning.

I didn’t want to say anything about iOS 6 until I had some time to get used to it and decide what I think are some of the most useful updates. And probably to your surprise and relief, I’m not going to complain about the m-a-p-s. They know it’s broken, they’ve apologized, suggested alternatives, and they’re gonna fix the heck out of it for us. It’s gonna rock our worlds, you guys. I’m sure of it.

Help give the keyboard industry a kick in the pants

There are a lot of Bluetooth keyboards to choose from, but few meet all the needs of most users. Too often they are too small to type on in their effort to be compact, or they are fine to type on but too big to be portable.
