Here are the latest rumors circulating in the Apple blogosphere:
“AppAdvice” (http://appadvice.com) says Apple is almost ready to launch a full-fledged re-downloading and possibly streaming service for TV shows and movies named iTunes Replay. “In a nutshell, iTunes Replay is an extension to what Apple is already doing with iCloud and free re-downloads of previously purchased music,” the site says.
“All Things D” (http://macte.ch/IdK7s) says the iPhone 5 will debut in October, not September, as some have predicted. Rumors have it that the next gen Apple smartphone will use the faster A5 processor used by the iPad 2, a Qualcomm dual mode GSM/CDMA baseband, and a higher resolution eight-megapixel rear camera.
Google believes Microsoft, Oracle, Apple and other companies are waging a “hostile, organized campaign against Android” though “bogus patents”, according to a post on the Official Google Blog (http://macte.ch/UhUlf).
