Apple Tablet Due This Year? Giant Sized iPod Touch?

http://www.gaj-it.com

There have been rumours about Apple launching a tablet device for the last few years but in recent months the rumour mill has been working overtime and now the Financial Times has run a piece predicting that Apple will release a tablet device, code-named “Cocktail”, before Christmas.

The FT is anticipating a September launch, which is also the traditional time of year for new iPod launches, and they expect the device to be 10 inches across the diagonal with a heavy focus on media and will use the Apple App Store.

Such a device would be like a giant iPod Touch rather than an Apple Mac with a touch screen. This is a crucial piece of information. Until now tablet computing hasn’t really taken off. Microsoft has had a tablet version of XP since 2002 but there never was really any success. Sony has recently said they will launch a touch screen netbook in the Vaio range to coincide with the launch of Windows 7, but the true success for touchscreen devices is with Apple.

So will you, the consumer, grab one of these tablets? We want to know. But first, here are the likely pros and cons of the device to help you decide

AT&T Has Managed To Piss Off the Wrong Bunch of Web-Nerds

http://gawker.com

AT&T, for reasons unknown at this point, has blocked user access to portions of 4chan, the online hangout for the world's most notorious cyber-terrorists. And they thought iPhone customers were a pain in their ass! This will end badly.

For benefit of the uninitiated, 4chan is a popular Wild West-ish outpost of internet known equally for its infamous hacking jobs and pranks (Rickrolling emerged from this murky swamp) as its meme generation, perhaps most notably the LOLcats phenomenon. 4chan's /b/ messageboard, one of the sections of the site blocked by AT&T, was once described as "the asshole of the internet" by Gawker and Valleywag alum Nick Douglas, an outpost where "btards" gather to engage in tasteless games of uncensored oneupsmanship, where the objective is often to see who can elicit the most shock from other members of the community.
