1. OCCUPY TURNS 1 [LATimes]
The Occupy Wallstreet movement has hit their 1 Year Anniversary today! First; holy smokes they’ve been out there for a full year? Second; I had completely lost track of this like…6 months ago.

2. ROBOCOP REMAKE [IGN
It’s the first day of shooting for the 90’s action reboot…and there’s already a set-photo leak!  

3. WiiU UPDATE [Nintendo Channel]
I missed out on this last week with all the Apple/Halo4 updates - but Nintedo released a slew of Wii U videos describing everything from release date and cost, to games like Bayonetta2 and ZombieU.

4. NEW MARVEL SUPERHERO [YouTube
Stan Lee has created an all new hero specifically for an upcoming iOS game! He looks like a mix of IronMan and Tron, a very trendy/popular/smart move on Marvels part.  

APPLE 12.09.12 KEYNOTE: Wrap Up #iphone5
Looks like after over a year of rumours we were rewarded with a new iPhone! And the new iPod’s look like something that could possibly rejuvenate the brand…if iTunes can carry itself. It was a fast paced presentation, and I already posted all the major things that stuck out to me (so go back in my posts) BUT here are some smaller details that caught my eye… 
- A bigger screen that can jam more pixels at a higher res for the iPhone5 and iPod Touch/Nano- Shared photo streams in the iCloud via iOS6 in the way of personalized photo albums- iPhone now has 3 microphones- iTunes 11 (coming out October ‘12) is boasting a new interface we’ll all be happy with- AirPlay will be available on the iPodTouch!

WWDC LIVESTREAM [click]

As per-usual Giz has setup shop and is keeping me updated on what is happening with Apple’s biggest event of the year. 

So far it’s just a lot of talk surrounding the new MacBook Pro’s and iOS6. Neither of which I’m overly excited about but we’ll see…

Minecraft on the iPad
Minecon 2011 is in full effect (I just read someone proposed at the event) and Mojang released a handheld version! It’s what you’d expect from a dumbed down version of such a massive game…- there’s no actual mining or crafting- you start off with all the supplies you’ll need/get- i quickly found the edge of the world, which is an invisible wall that drops off into nothing- there’s no day/night, enemies, or health/food barsWith all that taken away there are some definite positives to make up for it…- to create a world with your friends you just need to be on the same network- the controls are simple and practical - it’s one of the best ways to kill time on an iOS device
Works for iPhone + iPad $6.99 in App Storeif we’re friends IRL you should get it and help me create awesome stuff IRL!

APPLE AUTUMN ‘11 KEYNOTE

1. iPhone 4S (not 5) 

2. Handheld software finally upgrading this month

3. iMessage will be for Apple products what BBM is for Blackberry

4. Newstand App will be iBooks for magazines (finally)

5. iCloud could change the way we compute *fingers crossed*

Remember the livefeed is happening at [Gizmodo] 

Right now they’re talking about gaming with the new processor, and the beefed up camera. 

The new family…
Picked up a used MacBook for dirt cheap today, finally something to do full editing at work (and play WoW on the go). Shortly after a good friend gave me his iPod Touch (1st gen) when he found out my iPod Nano had been stolen! For those thinking it: Yes I do still use my iPad, fully, for everything from eBooks to writing weekly studies, to playing games. The iPhone4 is only loaded with communication apps, and the iPod is only for music. I see this as an opportunity to use each device to it’s full potential with the Apps and programs they were designed for.

Germany 2011; just as entertaining as the Men’s was, go England!

2. iTOUCH3G
Reports are stating that the new iPod Touch will have 3G capabilities, much like the iPad. Team that up with communication Apps like Skype or Kik and you’re looking at the end of talk ‘n text contracts!

3. R.I.P. AKIRA LIVE
Finally, some good news about a Hollywood-remake. First the director walked away, now the designer is making his distaste for the live-action-Americanized-anime.

4. R.I.P. CURSIVE
Apparently US schools will be abolishing lessons on cursive hand writing, and replacing them with computer typing skills. Thus is the way of the future…
