For those not weary of iPhone predictions, here's some new grist for the Apple rumor mill, in the form of "leaked" photos of what is expected to be Apple's new iPad mini. The photos gathered steam Tuesday after appearing on a French technology site called Nowhere Else and then popped up on technology blogs all over the Web. Some blogs declared that the pictures show a leaked "prototype" of a smaller tablet from Apple. Others were skeptical, saying that that the image in the photos looked like a mock-up or model based...

Apparently it's not easy to assemble one of the world's thinnest and lightest smartphones. Who would have guessed? The iPhone 5 is almost 20 percent thinner than iPhone 4, at just 7.6 mm or .3 inches, and it's 20 percent lighter than the previous model as well.

That's why Foxconn execs are calling the iPhone 5 "the most difficult device" that the company has ever assembled.

Who will run Apple after its visionary chief executive and product guru Steve Jobs leaves? The question has been hanging over the company since last summer when Jobs appeared onstage at a conference looking terribly ill. Jobs, 53, underwent surgery for pancreatic cancer four years ago, and now says he's suffering from a "hormone imbalance. " He appears determined not to groom a successor, saying last week in an open letter that he intends to remain in charge, and if at some point he can't do his job, he'll make...
