Third Party Lightning Docks

Belkin is the first company to put out docks and accessories with lightning connectors for the current generation of Apple products. Belkin will launch two new accessories designed for Apple's Lightning connector, a hardwired car charger and Charge + Sync dock. These are the first of several new Lightning accessories from Belkin that will launch this year.

While many of the Apple-faithful seem to regard the lightning ports on their new devices as a technological leap forward, the more cynical among us see them as a semi-transparent money-grab. Sure, they might be "better" than the old docks in some way, but that doesn't even come close to making up for the price of the now-useless accessories I've purchased over the last 7 or so years. So for me, buying non-Apple docks is a good thing.

After the break you'll find the details on Belkin's first accessories for Apple's new devices.

iPhone 5 Map Application Failing Epically

If you pre-ordered an Apple iPhone 5 early, tomorrow is the day you'll be receieving your new, slightly better mobile phone, but you might want to be a little wary of iPhones new map feature. If you don't have the new phone, you might want to hold off on updating to iOS 6. While the iPhone 5 will (finally) offer turn-by-turn directions, according to many reports, Apple's new map feature is...problematic, as you can see from the above picture of the Eiffel Tower.

There are no directions for public transportation, and according to many reports, not only are some photographic representations of locations clearly messed up, the info Apple is drawing on for its maps is often inaccurate and/or crazy. Apple's new map app gives us a view into a bizzaro word full of Dali-esque landscapes, where the Brooklyn bridge is melting, long-dead businesses are still around, gas stations are located on rooftops, Chinese restaurants are at the bottom of rivers, and some cities have been sent back in time to World War II.

Five iPhone Game Developers React To Apple's iPad Announcement

More reports are coming in that Apple plans to announce the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini in mid-September. According to reports posted on iMore, Apple is planning to show off the iPhone 5 at an event on September 12, 2012, with the release to follow nine days later. According to the site, "This information comes from sources who have proven accurate in the past."

The iPad Mini will supposedly be announced at the same event, although there's less information about when that device will hit the market (if it exists at all).

If you add this rumor to last week's similar iPhone 5 rumor, figure in Apple's release schedule for past improvements of the iPhone, and it seems pretty likely that we'll all be drooling over a new iPhone in September. On the other hand, these are all unsupported Internet rumors and might turn out to be utterly false, so take it all with a huge grain of internet-rumor-salt.
