Apple’s new and much anticipated iPhone 5 may not be being released until fall, according to speculation. Take it with a pinch of salt if you will, but it seems the rumour mongers have been in overdrive thanks to the fact that Apple’s iPad 2 event, which was held earlier this month, featured not so much as a mention of the iOS 5. Rumours then circulated that a preview of the heavily hyped device would finally be given sometime in April, but the people at TechCrunch are now claiming that the first look at that device will now not be given until the summer, probably in June. If that turns out to be the case, then it would seem the actual release date for the item would not be until the fall.
I was reading on NorthJersey.com about how residents of Bloomfield are upset about a cell phone tower being placed on Broad Street.

When it comes time to upgrade to a new cell phone, you may want to think about disposing of your old cell phone properly. This could mean donating it, trading it in, or selling it.

A bill, which is currently being drafted by Oregon Senator Ron Wyden, will, if accepted, apply local privacy protection to a person’s geo-location information.
While there are a few different avenues you can consider when selling your cell phone, the online option generally offers the best money. The two most popular methods are recycling for cash (sellcell.com) or selling on eBay. Which method is right for you, depends on you.
In an article by Fox News online, journalist Garrett Tenney makes a point. Most of us are highly dependent on our cell phones when it comes to being able to locate contact numbers. However, what happens if we lost it? What if, like in Japan, there was a crisis and our cell phones were swept away? Would we have an alternative to fall back on?
A Taiwanese professor has developed a new smart phone application, which could save your life in the event you find yourself trapped beneath a building.
The new application, which is called Mobile Saviour, was inspired by the recent events in Japan. The creator, Liang Chih-hsiung is an associate professor of multimedia and game science at the Lunghwa University of Science and Technology located in New Taipei City, Taiwan.
Sometime within the next few months, Google is planning to run a field test on near-field communication (NFC) technology, the technology that turns your cell phone into a debit card.
I read an article this morning in the Dallas Morning News about how few of us lock our cell phones or protect it with security software and that is really not very smart.
