News:

Some of us are pretty satisfied with our black models, but there’s a reason Apple makes a white one too, and for those who’ve been jonesin we can only say, one’s been seen out in the wild…and maybe you’ll get your hands on one of these puppies, around the same time as Verizon, seeing as how their network could support the iPhone on as well…and there’s a bit more to the rumors this time, so if CDMA’s forthcoming wireless standards whispering holds water, you might be holding your Verizon iPhone sooner than you think…what can’t support the iPhone? Looks like the glass face is a wee bit more fragile than in previous versions…you know what else related to the iPhone turns out to be fragile? AT&T’s network, but we’ve got a solution–the 3G Microcell. More money to AT&T? Hmmm.

And we told you it was coming last week…and now it appears that the iPad hit the shelves at Wal-Mart on Friday, just like we said…the same day Adobe closed the holes in their apps that let users read the latest issue of The New Yorker for free, since it is the People of Wal-Mart’s magazine of choice…haha! we kid, we kid. Everyone knows the top-selling readable for for Wal-Mart people is the New York Times, which finally graces the iPad in a full deluxe edition….and why not turn up in Wal-Mart, since in terms of adoption rates, the iPad is kicking major butt, even beating out the previous contender, the DVD player…heck, it’s even turning up in Verizon stores, just not in the 3G models…because when you can play flix, and read books on the same device, why not? And with these slick new updates to Amazon’s apps, our book reading on the iPad just got a whole lot sweeter…though we sure would like to see iBooks start kicking it up a notch…which only leaves one question–how long can Apple keep the Android tablet wolves at bay?
