The latest iPhone 5 is set for pre-orders tonight at midnight and will most likely sell out rather quickly.  The main improvements include new earbuds (called earpods), a 4-inch widescreen Retina display, a beefier A6 processor, a slightly sexier aluminum enclosure, a new back, a thinner design, 4G LTE, dual-channel 802.11n 5GHz networking, a centered HD FaceTime...

As the (pretty accurate) rumors heat up about Apple's iPhone 5 dropping some time in September, expect to see more stuff hitting the rumor mill.  The latest and most realistic picture I have seen to date has shown up at cultofmac. ...

The concept phone pictured above is a designers dream, Antoine Brieux, of the new Liquid Metal iPhone 5.  This French designer wrapped the new iPhone 5 concept in a high performance Liquid Metal alloy.  The home button on the front of the phone is a "virtual" button and sits in the same place as the older iPhone's.  The LCD screen...

In what looks to be a USB flash drive is the world's smallest 3G and Wi-Fi portable hotspot, the Option XYFI.  The XYFI is USB powered and can support up to eight devices at the same time.  Currently the XYFI only supports 3G (hopefully 4G will be an option in the future) but will be perfect for...

So, the rumor goes like this, Google is getting into the cloud game.  What took so long?  Apple has their iCloud, there is Dropbox, and even Box.  I don't know the answer, but it looks like Google may be launching a cloud product called Drive.  I wouldn't want to be a competitor in this space today because it is...
