Case-Mate: Accidentally Leaks iPhone 5 Design?

Written on September 16, 2011 by Adam Eve

Case-Mate is believed to leak the iPhone 5 design unintentionally with its now-gone products page.

Even before news sites were able to post the most recent buzz, Case-Mate pulled its web page which is said to showcase a number of iPhone 5 cases.

Replaced with a landing page, the now-removed product content looked like renders anyway. However, they were probably based on partly known specs. Thus, the cases offered styling cues that were taken from the iPad 2 and iPod Touch with a tapered back and thinner casing. Case-Mate’s removal of the product page suggests that it wasn’t posted intentionally, although it could be a ploy to get people to their landing page.

Apple is reported to announce the next iPhone in the coming weeks, while Case-Mate’s images were just the latest in the series of leaks concerning the next handset.

The device, which is dubbed a Windows 8 Developer Preview, is a re-tooled version of Samsung’s Series 7. It is an Intel i5-based tablet that is packed with Internet Explorer 10, apps created by Microsoft interns, 1.6GHz processor, 11.6-inch screen, front and rear cameras, HDMI and USB ports, and microSD and SIM card slots.

Turkish site, DonanimHaber, suggests that Intel will be releasing its high-end Sandy Bridge E processors on November 15.

Atari Arcade Duo Powered Joystick for iPad 2

An update to Atari's app revealed several information regarding the Atari Arcade Duo Powered joystick.

An update to Atari’s Greatest Hits app unveiled early details of the second retro arcade gaming stick for the iPad to arrive soon. The Atari Arcade Duo Powered stick, which gets support in the update, recreates the analog buttons and feel similar to the iCade but exchanges some of its vintage feel for more flexibility. Instead of redeveloping a cabinet, it represents a simpler joystick and dock combo that enables users to freely swap out the iPad.

Some details – such as how the iPad and the dock will link up, its price and shipping date – still remain unclear. Atari may still be using bluetooth or a hidden dock connector that will keep the iPad powered, and let it sit in the cradle as long as the owner likes.

The iCade costs $99, and the simpler design of the Duo Powered stick could lower its practical costs.

Microsoft has finally demonstrated USB 3.0 compatibility for Windows 8 in their company's blog.

Microsoft has finally release a demo for their USB 3.0 compatibility for Windows 8. In the said company’s engineering blog, Windows team leader – Steven Sinofsky – pointed out the challenges in purchasing the new standard without compromising compatibility with existing hardware and software built for the USB 2.0 protocol. Microsoft worked to design a new USB software stack for the new controller, while retaining the existing software stack for older controllers.

Sinofsky worte: “Perhaps the most important aspect of USB 3.0 is the expectation that customers have of USB: it’s just USB3 so it should just work, right? Each and every USB device, low, full, high, and SuperSpeed, has to work in Windows 8. That’s our focus while also delivering the most robust and reliable USB stack.”

Check the video demonstration of USB 3.0 in Windows 8 after the break.
