Mailbox, an extraordinary new free app for effectively managing your inbox, is now available for downloading. Previously, you had to put your name on a waiting list, but now anyone can download the app.

You use simple gestures in list view to archive or delete emails, to "snooze" them for later viewing, or file them away in a "list," which is like a folder.
Images keep emerging on the Internet of alleged casings, or moulds for casings, of the next-generation 9.7-inch iPad.

Of course, everyone is interpreting that to mean an iWatch or some other wearable device is on its way.

Each one has different price structures, coverage, functionality, etc. Fortunately, CNET has posted an article comparing the offerings of the four major carriers: Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile.
It's hard to beat the prescience of market analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who accurately predicted Apple's forthcoming iDevices and Macs last year. Now, according to AppleInsider, he's saying we will indeed be seeing an iPhone 5S with a fingerprint sensor, a low-cost iPhone with a plastic case, and an iPad mini with a higher-resolution screen.
