Of all the many pictures and videos floating around, many of them show a home button with a silver ring around it. Based on what I can tell, this appears to confirm that we’ll see this new feature tomorrow.
Today’s basics column covers the basic process of finding out your device’s serial number and model number.
While the many projects I’ve come across on Kickstarter have seemed interesting – today is the first time I’ve backed one. Read on for more about this new idea in funding and backing the JustMount and TidyTilt+ project.
This is the big boy of smartphones right now. It’s hard to think of a more desirable or lusted after device on the market (beyond the next iPhone itself). If you were looking for reviews, the web has them everywhere. The daunting task for any reviewer is to look at a device that is under such a huge microscope […]
Something all geeks look forward too – seeing the iPhone 5 torn apart piece-by-piece. This is done by the ever reliable folks at iFixit (who also tore apart the new Apple EarPods).

Since none of them currently offer the ability to get a data-only plan – and many people still pay for service they barely use – don’t expect that to change any time soon. I think it’s a compelling argument: if you can do everything you require without only data on a phone, why aren’t more people demanding it? So, I’m going to take an iPhone and give it only data access (by way of WiFi tethered off another phone) and see how many of the daily-use features will work reliably.
