Intel Working to Boost Thunderbolt Speeds with Move to PCI-Express 3.0



thunderbolt

In a new report IDG News claims that Intel is currently working on shifting its Thunderbolt standard to the PCI-Express 3.0 protocol. Such move means that the company could double data transfer speeds comparing with the existing implementations based on PCIe 2.0 protocol.

Intel in the future will support the PCI-Express 3.0 protocol to shuttle data faster between host devices and peripherals, an Intel spokesman said in an email. Computers with Thunderbolt interconnect currently communicate with external devices using the older PCI-Express 2.0 technology.

The company will incorporate PCI-Express 3.0 in Thunderbolt, but could not provide a time frame for when it will be accomplished.

Apple Using OpenStreetMap Data in iPhoto for iOS



apple_campus_iphoto_ios

Following the launch of Apple’s iPhoto for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch application, several reports noted that the mapping integration into the software was not Google-based. With Apple working on an in-house iOS maps product for the last couple of years, Daring Fireball's John Gruber later clarified that maps for Photo Journals and slideshows were coming directly from Apple.

The OpenStreetMap Foundation has now issued a blog post revealing that Apple is using at least some of its mapping data for these features, although it does note that Apple is using outdated mapping data and is not crediting appropriately for its usage.

The new iPhoto for iOS, however, uses Apple’s own map tiles – made from OpenStreetMap data (outside the US). [...]

New iPad to be Called 'iPad HD' and Not 'iPad 3'



ipad_3_event_invite

Citing inside information from a developer who has previously provided "reliable information" on upcoming Apple products, CNET claims that this time Apple would step away from its usual numerical naming and give the third-generation iPad the moniker 'iPad HD' to highlight the most prominent and talked-about feature of the upcoming tablet: a high resolution "Retina Display" that has reportedly been pictured and even put under the lens of a microscope in hopes of confirming a higher pixel count than existing iPad models.

VentureBeat also report that Apple will depart from the traditional scheme of naming and use the "HD" title as a proof that the tablet will not ship with a new A6 processor but will instead be equipped with a modified A5 chip.

Apple Readying Miniaturized Dock Connector for Future iPhones



dock-connector

Apple blog iMore has "heard" from unnamed sources that Apple is looking to replace the venerable 30-pin iPhone, iPad and iPod dock connector with a smaller, space-saving successor that will possibly make a debut in the company's next generation iPhone.

An updated “micro dock” could make room for bigger batteries, 4G radios, and other components far more important to the iPhone and iPad in a PC free world. As iMore points out, the current dock connector isn't huge, but as devices continue to get smaller and thinner, every little bit counts.
