Apple is currently working on a fix for the late-2013 MacBook Pro bug that causes laptop’s keyboard and trackpad to freeze from time to time. It was previously reported that the problem may be a result of the conflict between MacBook’s hardware the operating system.
iPad Mini is 23 percent thinner and 53 percent lighter than iPad 3. It is just 7.2mm thin, and weights 0.68 pounds. The new iPad mini features a 7.9-inch Multi-Touch display, A5 CPU, FaceTime HD and 5MP iSight cameras, 10 hours of battery life, fast 802.11n 150 Mbps Wifi and worldwide LTE. iPad mini features the same number of pixels (1024 x 768) as the original iPad and iPad 2, so it is possible to run and use all 270000 apps designed specifically for iPad. The best part is that you can hold in one hand.
The iPad Mini price starts from $329 for 16GB Wifi model up tp $659 for 64Gb WiFi+3G/4G:
Today at its media event Apple updated the iPod touch lineup to a fifth generation model that includes the same 4" screen as the new iPhone 5. At only 88 grams and 6.1mm thin the new iPod touch is lighter than all previous iPod touch models. The new model incorporates the A5 processor.
A senior designer at Samsung, Jeeyuen Wang, took the stand on Tuesday in an effort to counter Apple's allegations that multiple Samsung devices copied the layout and imagery of iOS. The designer claims hundreds of people around the world worked tirelessly on Samsung's iconography, adding that she herself was only able to sleep two or three hours a night. Wang admitted that she did look at products from other companies, including Apple, but denied stealing the icons outright, saying instead that it was part of the design process.

According to Reuter’s
The United States Patent and Trademark Office published on Tuesday that Apple won a core multitouch patent that describes how touch events are recognized by a touchscreen device. The patent blog Patently Apple also noted that this patent was one of the "200+ Patents for new inventions" Jobs lauded when the iPhone first debuted in 2007.
The newly granted patent focuses on the oscillator signal and circuit of a touchscreen-equipped device, an integral invention directly related to how users interact with their multitouch products.
Apple states in the filing: "In general, multi-touch panels may be able to detect multiple touches (touch events or contact points) that occur at or about the same time, and identify and track their locations."
One way to record multiple touches is to generate an oscillating signal circuit that can power and clock inputs over a substrate as in a capacitive touchscreen display. But it is difficult to create a precise circuit-based oscillator. According to Apple's patent, the solution to capacitive touchscreen problem is to calibration logic circuitry which compares the signal oscillation against a reference signal and tunes the clock frequency accordingly. The invention provides for an accurate capacitive display that can not only sense multiple touches, but also detect hover or near touches which are also recognized as "touch events."
