Reuters says "a source with knowledge of the device" confirmed its existence and that the real iPad 2 will have the camera along with other features.

Apple may be planning to build the second data center in North Carolina



DataCenters-Flickr

According to a new report from All Things Digital, two new photos were revealed on the Flickr page of the Catawba County that show two renderings of Apple's site in Maiden, North Carolina - one of them is an existing facility and another one, which is labeled as "Phase 2", has two seemingly identical buildings.  It leads to an idea that Apple may have been planning to build another data center, but it remains unknown why the company still hasn't reported anything on such plans.

Rumors on the second Apple's data center site aroused last week when All Things Digital cited some anonymous sources and reported that Apple was examining the suggestion to double its operations in Maiden to 500,000 square-feet. As you may know, the data center in North Carolina is almost five times larger than Apple's current data center situated in Newark, California. It was also announced to be "fully operational" by Data Center Knowledge last Sunday, and Apple revealed it will be opened "any day now".

Third-party iPhone apps can freely transmit UDID



1

Apple claims that it is impossible to track a particular iPhone in real time, as its transactions are anonymous and thoroughly randomized. However, Bucknell University network admin Eric Smith suggests that third-party application developers and advertisers may link your device to your name (and even your location) whenever they transmit data. Smith studied 57 top applications in the iTunes App Store to see what they sent out, and discovered that some fired off the iPhone's UDID and personal details in plaintext, including those for Amazon, Chase Bank, Target and Sam's Club, though a few were secured with SSL. Though UDIDs are routinely used by apps to store personal data, what Smith fears is that a database could be set up linking these UDIDs to GPS coordinates or GeoIP, giving nefarious individuals or organizations knowledge of where you are.
