J.K. Rowling Announces Something Called ‘Pottermore’

But what the HELL is it?

Author JK Rowling sent Harry Potter fans into a TIZZY yesterday with the launch of a new website called Pottermore. Altho there is absolute NO official information about the site, it has been sniffed out that Pottermore may become a sort of official online portal for Harry Potter fans. A representative for Rowling insists that the site has nothing to do with a new book or the final Harry Potter film to be released next month. HMMM.

Reuters Reports That The iPhone 5 Will Be Released In September

Rumor Mill

It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard a seriously juicy iPhone rumor so it was very nice of the Reuters news agency to report the latest rumor this week that the anticipated iPhone 5 will be released this September.

Unfortch, those flashy icons didn’t really work in the late 90′s and still do not work today. More »

Apple CEO Steve Jobs Takes Another Medical Leave Of Absence

His Second Medical Leave in 2 Years

Two years ago, Apple CEO Steve Jobs shocked the tech world by announcing that he would be taking a medical leave of absence from his duties at Apple and ended up staying away from the company for 6 months before returning to the job looking much skinnier than he did before (due to a liver transplant). Since his return, Jobs has been operating as CEO as usual, seemingly back to his old self. Today, Jobs has announced that he will be taking another medical leave of absence by issuing a statement that gives no information at all as to why the leave is necessary. More »
