Multiple reports point to Apple producing a 7-inch iPad and iMacs might actually get a Retina screen after all.

Alright guys was on the stories at the rivers that -- you want to believe I still believe yet it's the iPad mini me. Now the new report from Chinese site my driver's dot com says the seven point 85 inch iPad. Will launch later this year it will be the same thickness as the iPad two. And you -- -- IAG zero technology to create a thinner and brighter display that was rumored for the iPad three but it wasn't ready in time for mass production back then. Now the report also says but I've -- -- in your -- has been strengthened. Just like me. Now German I have eight gigs of capacity with a price point between 249 and 299 it would be position to go head on with Google's recently announced. Nexus seven -- jelly -- They Kindle fire and the Nook Color. We should also remind you these rumors started immediately after in the very first iPad was announced in 2010. And are still -- They'll last week we also told you how Retina Display looked -- -- on the new IMAX but a new report from -- -- times one week later changes that outlook. They report the new iMac will debut around October with a high chance I was sporting a Retina Display. Their logic is that Apple's looking to expand its Retina Display across all product lines seriously they actually wrote that my pet rock. Have told me the same -- what's up Einstein -- And other sources also report in addition to launching a new iMac this year. They will completely refreshed the iMac and Mac pros -- brand new models next year.

A deadly feels like a rushed out to me and -- what is worthy -- a bad Apple. Now I'm sticking with downcast and many -- you also suggested -- check out is the -- so you guys can take a look at that -- Though there also may be a new pay out if you ever made and I product in the past. Apple finally settled the iPad name -- with proview in China forget this from sixty million dollars. Apple purchased the name from proview in 2009 under a shell company but the use of the iPad trademark in China was never officially granted. Now with the settlement it's -- so after that. A Chinese company that makes -- and cleaning chemicals with a brand names snow leopard decided that Mac OS-X snow leopard is a violation. Of their trademark and they're asking for 80000 dollars in damages. So a computer operating system and toilet cleaners I thought they were the same to. Alright guys and quick bites Apple's launch the new iCloud dot com beta site for registered IOS and Mac developers. Notes -- reminders were previously rumored and they made it to the all web interface for iCloud. Find my iPhone has been redesigned with a new look and -- looks to be new notification is related to the calendar application and find my iPhone as well. Apple's mobile me service ended on June 30 in case you guys did -- -- but. Apple's allowing users to download their precious.
