We’ve all tripped on power cords, sending laptops or other precious items tumbling to the ground. With the introduction of the MagSafe connector, back in 2006, Apple fixed the problem for clumsy MacBook owners, but has since left plugged-in iPad users up a creek. Cupertino was awarded a patent yesterday to integrate the magnetic (trip-safe) cord into future iOS devices like the iPad, potentially solving the dilemma for good. The Haus of Jobs also snagged patents for magnetic assembly and a “securing system,” whatever that means. by engadget

Claimed “spy shots” of unreleased Apple hardware are almost a tradition here at MacRumors. Whenever we approach a highly anticipated product launch, we always get claimed images of what that new product will look like. The images are usually blurry, impossible to verify and frequently fake.
This one was posted to our forums with the claim of being taken “in the office of a French operator.” source:macrumors
Apple is reportedly cracking down on developers who are selling access to the iOS 5 beta, says Karthikk.net.
Many of my developer friends have reported that Apple has sent an email warning which said that they have identified the developer to be selling his slots for some users to get early preview of iOS.
The developers accounts were closed for selling the slots and the UDIDs associated with that dev account were flagged.
While this may be the case, its likely that many user reports are actually based on the expiration of iOS 5.0 beta 2 that occurred yesterday. Those who did not update to iOS 5.0 beta 3 or higher had their device activation canceled. by iclarified
