iPhone 5 rumors

Culture
-It's Tuesday, September 6, 2011. I'm Wilson Tang on cnet.com, and it's time to get loaded. Rumors of the iPhone 5 launch have been floating around. Here's a quick round up. According to leaked photos, Apple has began training its Apple store employees on the benefits of iOS 5 and iCloud that suggest the phone will be making its debut soon as a software and cloud service are expected to arrive at the same time. In addition, some employees of Best Buy are reporting 2 possible release dates for the anticipated device. Either the first week of October or October 21st. Netflix has announced that it will be launching its movie streaming service out side of North America. Today, the service will launch in Brazil and it's expected to be available in 43 Latin American countries over the next week. The company says it has spent the last few months studying how Latin Americans think about movies and the delivery process. Subscriber will be able to access the service in Spanish, Portuguese, or English on PCs, the Nintendo Wii, PS3s and certain smart TVs. Amazon.com is testing a new design today that gets rid of much of its blue and orange color in favor of a sleeker, simpler tool bar. The new layout has fewer products, more white space and a prominent search bar. Some are even speculating the new design supposedly is more tablet friendly for possible Kindle device. You've always heard warning about meeting people online especially on Facebook. Well, this woman is prime example number 1 of what happens when you go on a date with a Facebook friend in real life. Leah Gibbs from South Wales met Adam Minton on Facebook and agreed to a date. She thought they would be watching a DVD at Minton's home. Instead, he told her he needed to see her friend and then subsequently went to betting shop where threatened the staff with a knife and rob the place. He then leaved into Gibb's car and told her to drive. The couple spent the night in Jail when her license plate was ID'd. Toshiba has unveiled what it says is the world's thinnish notebook. The Z830 is a 13.3-inch ultra book that is only 15 mm thick. Unlike the MacBook Air, it offers 3 USB ports, an HDMI port, VGA, and Gigabit Ethernet. All told the Z830 is 1.11 kilograms. Toshiba hasn't announced any final pricing yet, but the company hopes the price will come in at under $100. Queen front man, Freddie Mercury, passed away 20 years ago, but Google hasn't forgotten about the fondly remembered performer. The company is commemorating the Queen band member by releasing a new chrome extension that will add the singer's iconic mustache to any image online. It's called Mustachio and uses this face reorganization API from face.com already more 3000 people have installed and are using the plug in. Those are your headlines for today.
