yet another iPhone 5 rumor

New reports have surfaced that the iPhone 5, now slated to be shipped in fall 2012, will have a aluminum back, joined to the glass front by a plastic/rubberized bezel.

Earlier reports stated that shipment would start summer 2012, with an aluminum back and a slightly larger screen (4").

Lots of time left till either supposed shipment date. Lots of rumors to come.

No word yet on when the next stable version of the app will be released.

Bell Canada ends internet throttling in favor of usage-based billing

Here in the United States the net neutrality debate rages on, but Canadian internet users officially lost the battle three years ago. Now, however, one internet service provider, Bell Canada, has agreed to stop peer-to-peer throttling. In a letter to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), the ISP said that peer-to-peer file-sharing now takes up less bandwidth than streaming video and other services, making throttling it a lower priority.

TELUS to deploy 4G+ wireless LTE

Vancouver, B.C. – Canadians will enjoy even faster mobile internet access speeds in early 2012 with the planned launch of TELUS' next generation, Long Term Evolution (LTE) network. LTE technology supports manufacturer's rated peak download speeds of up to 150 megabits per second (Mbps) and upload speeds of up to 70 Mbps**. This initiative is the latest technology evolution in the wireless network upgrade path made possible by the launch in 2009 of Canada's fastest* coast-to-coast HSPA+ wireless network, that today covers more than 95 per cent of the Canadian population.

LightSquared hits another road block

LightSquared, the company wanting to offer wholesale 4G service across the US, has hit another road block.
After being asked by the DoD and DoT, the FCC performed testing to show that the network does interfere with GPS signals.
75% of GPS receivers experienced "harmful interference" when within 100 meters of a transmission tower.
LightSquared, outraged by the leak of data, has always stated in it's defence that GPS makers rely on frequencies assigned to other licensees.
Spectrum owned by LightSquared and spectrum used by GPS devices are very close together in range.

Even with a planned 40,000 towers across the US, this 'harmful interference' the government is talking about is merely affecting a fraction of surface area of the country. Never mind the accusation that GPS devices are using frequencies not assigned to them.
So at an average speed of 80 km/h driving by a transmission tower, you would loose the GPS signal for maybe 10 seconds or so. I don't think this is much of concern at all myself, considering the benefits of a nationwide 4G cell service.

The Zynga IPO

Zynga Inc., the online gaming giant, has filed it's S-1 with the Securities and Exchange commission.

Zynga's IPO price range has been set at $8.50 to $10 per share, which will give it a valuation of around 1 billion dollars.

Wall Streets earlier speculated that Zynga would debut on the public market at a valuation between 15 and 20 billion, but according to reports the company decided to lower the price range of their shares due to world economic concerns.

Zynga plans to release 100,000,000 shares in it's offering, and as we come closer to the date the price range will most likely increase, like with many other tech IPO's.
