Verizon to block employee vacations on September 18th-22nd



According to 9to5Mac, Verizon prohibiting employees to go on vacation between September 18th-22nd. This is exactly the period between rumored iPhone 5S release to be held on September 20th.

As Apple’s September 10th iPhone unveiling approaches, we’ve heard that Verizon Wireless is blocking its retail employees from requesting vacations between Wednesday, September 18th and Sunday, September 22nd. Based on Apple historically shipping new versions of the iPhone about a week and half following the unveiling, it would make sense for the new iPhones to arrive for customers on Friday, September 20th.

Moreover, Verizon is rumored to have little stocks of the 32GB and 64GB iPhone 5 models. So we may assume that the carrier is expecting the launch of new generation of devices. Walmart has also decreased the price of the iPhone 5 to $98 with Verizon contract.

Apple Updates Siri to Make Fun of Google Glass Fans



Apple has updated Siri recently with the ability to give smart responses to those who mock it with a command 'Okay Glass', which is originally used to control Google Glass. From now on, each time Siri hears these two words, it will reply with one of such phrases:

  • "Just so you know, I don't do anything when you blink at me."
  • "Stop trying to strap me to your forehead. It won't work."
  • "I think that glass is half empty."
  • "I'm not Glass. And I'm just fine with that."
  • "Very funny. I mean, not funny "ha-ha," but funny."
  • "Glass? I think you've got the wrong assistant."

If you have nothing better to do, check whether you have the latest version of Siri virtual assistant installed on your device and try to play with it on your own.

New iPads to unveil on September 10th?



According to information provided by Bloomberg, Apple will unveil both iPhones and new iPads on September 10th. Previously it was widely believed that the iPads will be presented on a special event in October.

Apple, based in Cupertino, California, plans to introduce new versions of its phone and tablet at a Sept. 10 event, a person familiar with the matter has said, and the company promised “several more game changers” in the product pipeline as it tries to fend off Samsung Electronics Co. and Chinese makers selling cheaper handsets.

However, the information was provided in a report concerning Apple opening it first retail store in Tokyo since 2005. Thus it may not be true. Recent reports state that Apple is not likely to prepare  iOS 7 for iPad, so its release will be held in October.

Apple will visit Russia to talk about iPhone



TechCrunch reports that Apple executives are visiting Russia to talk about Phone sales.

Although Apple has yet to confirm what iPhone handsets it will launch next, the meetings are a sign of how Apple may be preparing to launch new, possibly cheaper devices, to revisit a market that has seen demand for its products, but also one where it has faced challenges working with carriers, the presence of a crazily-priced grey market and, according to eager distributors, short supply issues that do not meet demand.

Apple will be sending its top executives to have a meeting with retailers in Russia. No details of the topics to be discussed are known.
