It’s been a long day (as I’m up at 2am), but lots has happened that has almost passed me by.
Today two other news items crossed my eye, the iPhone 5 and Microsoft’s SkyDrive.
iPhone 5 scheduled for release in September
According to Bloomberg, the iPhone 5 is scheduled for release this September (possibly in late August). This is contrary to rumors about there being an iPhone 4S before a new iPhone 5 (that was supposed to be testing of a model for T-Mobile). Additional rumors are spreading that the iPhone 5 will not only feature the better camera and processor, but a completely new form factor.
Bloomberg was relatively accurate about the Verizon iPhone selling earlier this year, lets hope they are right on this.

Here’s a video of HTML5 in the new Windows 8:
