> Apple may hold iPhone 5 event in smaller venue on Cupertino campus They're holding it wrong.
I went to http://www.apple.com/feedback and encouraged them to make the change, citing reasons (Apple IDs in 2 countries with purchases in each, necessitating multiple sign-out/-in cycles just to get free updates to paid apps). Even if they do it, they may not "do it right" AFAIC, unless they also consolidate store purchases. All my purchases that weren't free are available in both stores. I can see a difficulty if an app is available only in a specific country's store,...
RAW? It's a picture of sushi, fer crine out loud! Doesn't get much RAWer than that! Sorry, but RAW support doesn't turn a little device like a phone camera into a DSLR. Though I guess with a Canon F-mount and a couple of L-class lenses... Can you actually get original Japanese-style sushi in California? Everything nowadays seems to be spider rolls and suchlike.

"had decided to kill the webOS hardware team" Did they say what they plan to do with the bodies?

So I did. Looked fine, until 3-4 days ago, when the App Store (or one of those quasi-cloudy Apple network things) challenged me to confirm my payment details (this was for free updates to free iOS...
Here in Bellingham, WA, starting soon after 8:00 AM, I downloaded it at an average I'd estimate at about 1.7 MBps, or over 13 Mbps. I have Comcast's 12 Mbps "Performance" package for $24.95, and IMO they've exceeded their commitment. Apple has astounded me by serving it at this speed. Very pleased with both companies. It's rebooted and is installing right now on my 27" late 2009 i7 iMac.
>GaAs >The toxicological properties of gallium arsenide have not been thoroughly investigated. On one hand, due to its arsenic content, it is considered highly toxic and carcinogenic. On the other hand... In other words, if you eat your iPhone, it'll give you gaas? Bet it blends.
