Apple’s next iPhone may come in blue, according to a last-minute rumor from well-known device leaker Evan Blass, who posted that tidbit to the internet shortly before the company’s digital event, being held Tuesday at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET.
In his post on the app Voice, which pitches itself as an alternative social network to Twitter that authenticates people are real, Blass showed off what appear to be Apple marketing images for the iPhone 12 Pro Max. He said the phones would come in blue, gold, graphite and silver. Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Prime Day 2020 is right around the corner, after getting delayed because it’s 2020 and, well, literally everything is getting delayed. However, by launching the giant sales event now, there’s a wealth of PC components that should be getting some pretty massive discounts.
We’ve seen Nvidia Ampere launch in September, and we have AMD Zen 3 processors and RDNA 2 graphics cards launching later in October – not to mention 10th-generation Intel processors, which launched way back in May 2020. For the first time in awhile, Prime Day is arriving right when a lot of still-good last-generation hardware is going to be moving.
But before you whip your wallet out to buy the first components that get a shiny new deal on Amazon Prime Day, we thought it would be a good idea to point out what’s going to be worth your time, so you don’t waste money on hardware
Democratic senators have signaled a willingness to make substantial changes to antitrust law and advocate breakups of the largest American tech companies, including campaigning for president on the issue. If the party can flip four seats, those same senators — such as Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts — could be in position to act against some of their favorite targets, including Facebook Inc. (FB) and Google parent Alphabet Inc. (GOOGL)(GOOG)
(GOOG)If Democrats wrest control of the U.S. Senate on Nov. 3 (or in the following days and weeks it takes to count ballots), it could lead to the first major changes
Cornwall, in England’s far southwest, is known for antique fishing villages and snug, cliff-lined beaches. Soon it may be the scene of something very different: a small but growing space industry.
One day in a year or two, a modified Boeing 747 is expected to lift off from the long runway at the region’s airport, head out over the Atlantic Ocean and soar into the stratosphere. There, a rocket will drop from below a wing, fire its engines and ferry a load of small satellites into orbit, while the plane returns to the airport.
After six years of planning and fund-raising, construction of a bare-bones spaceport, budgeted at about 22 million pounds ($28 million), is beginning this month at the airport in Newquay.
It’s October, and Apple’s entering uncharted territory without having announced a new iPhone by now. Typically Apple announces new iPhone models in September, but this year, things are different. We now expect Apple to announce the iPhone 12 on Oct. 13 or Oct. 14 (here’s why). The delay isn’t really a surprise, as Apple has said this year’s release date is going to be a few weeks later than usual.
Borderlands is an explosive and brash FPS-RPG franchise that hangs its hat on crude humor and the largest arsenal of weapons in gaming. Despite its reputation for being a bit one-note and too loud for its own good, it’s earned a massive following that continues to engage in the satisfying loot-grind to earn some rare guns and increase the strength of the core cast of vault hunters. Following Borderlands 3’s one year anniversary, we spent an hour chatting with Gearbox Software founder and executive producer Randy Pitchford about the early history of the franchise, the ethics of running an evolving game, and what’s to come with Borderlands 3 with the next-gen consoles on the horizon.
