I never buy my iPhones on contract. I always pay the full price for the phone (the 4S is my second iPhone) because trying to get out of contract in the UK is nasty. There's no early exit fee of $300 and call it a day like in the USA; here we pay off the rest of the contract in full if we want to get out early.   Furthermore, I have a general rule about upgrades: when my iPhone no longer receives iOS updates or the phone becomes unbearable to use because the hardware...
Regardless of what is going to be announced on Wednesday, I wouldn't go near an iPhone 5 with 10 foot pole. I love my 4S and I honestly believe that it is the best phone they have ever designed. The two-tone design on the back is a mistake (or the best run hoax on Apple part ever, I hope). 4 inches of screen real estate is too much and if the photos that have leaked out are to be believed, it just looks like the iPhone has been horribly stretched.   That and the fact...
Yeah for me the update weighed in at 7.28MB
Talk about old news, these nifty cables have been in place at the Apple Stores in London and Glasgow for about 2.5 years...
I may be wrong, but I thought that there never was a public release of OSX Lion 10.7.1. Didn't Apple just go from 10.7.0 to 10.7.2 with the initial iCloud integration? Perhaps there pursuing a similar route here? This may also mean that the 10.8.1 is almost ready for public release, look out for it this week.
You can probably expect it on the App Store between 10:00 A.M. - 11:00 A.M. Pacific Time. Might be best to wait a few days while the initial crowd downloads it.   On that topic, has anyone noticed a slow down in iTunes/Mac App store download speed over the last two weeks or so? I'm on a 30Mbps network and yet most of the time I get 0.5MB/sec. Both on Mac and PC.
Doesn't seem to be just for the USA, I just saw the Simpsons movie appear my iCloud collection. I'm on the British iTunes store.  
Prepare for the announcement of OSX Mountain Lion... 
I have to agree that iTunes is a bad deal price wise. You get the occasional decent offer in the British store but they are few and far between. However, I have seen what happens when you have huge collection of physical media, and I want to embrace the cloud.
I know nothing about server related stuff, but surely it's a bit unrealistic to have every iTunes store customer depending on a server farm in North Carolina? Though on the other hand considering the traffic jam that we suffered through for iOS5, that may well be the case of how things are done at Apple.   However, very happy to finally see the "films in the cloud" feature activated for British iTunes accounts. I have been steadily replacing my collection with iTunes...
