iPhone 5 Release Date Is September 21, According To Report

iPhone 5 Release Date Is September 21, According To Report
Previous rumors had the iPhone 5 release date pegged for the third or fourth week of September, and a new report appears to confirm, going a step further and marking the date of September 21.
TechCrunch reporter Jordan Crook cites a “trusted Verizon employee” as confirming that the company is having an all-staff vacation blackout from that date through the 30th, and that the 21st – a Friday – is indeed the launch date.
Apple is expected to unveil the device on September 12 (likely without the actual “iPhone 5″ name), as the company has been said to have an event planned for that day. As Crook points out, the timeline would fall in line with last year’s release of the iPhone 4S (though that was in October).
So what does Apple have in store for users? Well, we’ll have to wait and see to be sure, but you can read about the rumors here. Of course, we’ve already been schooled on iOS 6.
As far as the release date, we’ll leave it in the “rumor” file, as nothing official has been revealed yet, but I’d say this one has a pretty good shot at being legit.

Chrome OS Gets Some User Interface Tweaks

Chrome OS Gets Some User Interface Tweaks
Is it just me or is Chrome OS getting more and more WIndows-looking? Remember, when you just signed in, and you were in Chrome, and that was basically it?
Google has gradually added more of a traditional operating system-like interface to its OS, and that continues today with the latest stable update, which introduces a new redesigned app list (pictured above).
“Notably, we made the apps list much more compact, so you can access your apps without interrupting your browsing experience,” says Google software engineer Xiyuan Xia. “We also added a search box at the top of the apps list, which you can use like an omnibox to search the web, specific websites, or the apps on your computer.”
There’s also a new print UI, which has been available in the beta release for over a month. It integrates your printers in Google Cloud Print into the Chrome print dialog, so you can print to a cloud-ready printer, Google Drive, Chrome on your mobile device or to Fed Ex Offices.
Chrome Print UI
Other new changes in the latest stable update include:
  • You can select your own custom wallpaper
  • New, offline-capable Google Docs app
  • Update Adobe Flash to version
  • Flash Access Support
  • Seccomp Flash sandbox
  • New Shill connection manager
  • WiMax support in Shill
  • LTE Support for modem manager
  • Support Standard USB audio devices
  • Support wireless (bluetooth and others) Gamepads
  • Update GTalk Plug-In to version 3.3.3
  • Update Netflix Plug-in to version 2.0.5
  • Kernel rebased to 3.4
  • Gestures: support 3-finger tap/click as middle button
  • Resolved issues Samsung users were experiencing with Verizon Wireless activation
“The Stable channel has been updated to 21.0.1183.0 (Platform version: 2465.127.0) for Chromebooks (Acer AC700, Samsung Series 5 550, Samsung Series 5, and Cr-48) and Samsung Chromebox Series 3,” says Google’s Josafat Garcia.

New Google Algorithm Change Immediately Raises Concerns

As previously reported, Google announced that it will implement a new ranking signal into its search algorithm next week. The search engine will start taking the number of “valid” copyright removal notices it receives for a site, into account when ranking content.
Are you concerned about this new addition? Let us know in the comments.
Almost as soon as the Blogosphere was able to react to the news, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) put out its own post about it. Julie Samuels and Mitch Stoltz with the EFF write, “Earlier this summer, we applauded Google for releasing detailed stats about content removal requests from copyright holders. Now that we know how they are going to use that data, we are less enthusiastic.”
The two go on to express concerns with how “opaque” Google is being about the process, despite Google’s claim that it will “continue to be transparent about copyright removals.”
The EFF’s concerns are the vagueness of what Google considers to be a high number of removal notices, how Google plans to make its determinations, and how “there will be no process of recourse for sites who have been demoted.”
Google does say that it will “continue to provide ‘counter-notice‘ tools so that those who believe their content has been wrongly removed can get it reinstated.”
“In particular, we worry about the false positives problem,” says the EFF. “For example, we’ve seen the government wrongly target sites that actually have a right to post the allegedly infringing material in question or otherwise legally display content. In short, without details on how Google’s process works, we have no reason to believe they won’t make similar, over-inclusive mistakes, dropping lawful, relevant speech lower in its search results without recourse for the speakers.”
“Takedown requests are nothing more than accusations of copyright infringement,” the EFF addds. “No court or other umpire confirms that the accusations are valid (although copyright owners can be liable for bad-faith accusations). Demoting search results – effectively telling the searcher that these are not the websites you’re looking for – based on accusations alone gives copyright owners one more bit of control over what we see, hear, and read.”
The EFF concludes by saying that Google’s “opaque policies” threaten lawful sites and undermine confidence in search results.
The EFF is not the only group to quickly speak out about the announcement. Public Knowledge, a consumer rights group, also put out a much longer response.
We also received the following statement from Public Knowledge Senior Staff Attorney, John Bergmayer:
“It may make good business sense for Google to take extraordinary steps, far beyond what the law requires, to help the media companies it partners with. That said, its plan to penalize sites that receive DMCA notices raises many questions.
“Sites may not know about, or have the ability to easily challenge, notices sent to Google. And Google has set up a system that may be abused by bad faith actors who want to suppress their rivals and competitors. Sites that host a lot of content, or are very popular, may receive a disproportionate number of notices (which are mere accusations of infringement) without being disproportionately infringing. And user-generated content sites could be harmed by this change, even though the DMCA was structured to protect them.
“Google needs to make sure this change does not harm Internet users or the Internet ecosystem.”
It’s going to be quite interesting to see how Google’s new policy/signal holds up to abuse, and whether or not we see fair use significantly jeopardized.
