Purported iPhone 5 pics show bigger screen, tweaked antenna band

While iPhone 5 might only debut this fall, that apparently won't stop the purported image leaks from Vietnam. If accurate -- and that's always a big if -- the pics show a much smaller bezel which could be indicative of that larger, up to 4-inch display we've heard rumored before. Also, the black breaks are missing from above the volume controls, which either places some doubt on the veracity of the pictures, or indicates Apple may have done some work following iPhone 4 attenuation and de-tuning problems.

A couple more pictures after the break. Check them out and let me know what you think -- real, fake, or really fake?

News anchor gets co-host to lick iPad as April Fool's joke [Wednesday fun video]

Good April Fool's jokes seem hard to come by these days, but not for this news anchor who convinced his co-host to lick an iPad immediately after she exclaimed "I'm not licking an iPad!"

The host told a story about a breaking new app that lets you taste and smell things on your iPhone or iPad. The new technology was called Pietzo Electrics and although the co-host seemed disgusted by the idea, she was too intrigued to turn it down once the app was placed in front of her.

For some good laughs, check out the video after the break!

2.5 million iPad 2 built in March, 4+ million more per month on the way?

Digitimes says manufacturers delivered 3.4-2.6 million iPad 2 units to Apple in March and are aiming to deliver over 4 million a month -- a total of 12 million in conservative estimates -- during the next quarter. To put that in context, Apple sold 15 million original iPads during the last 9 months of 2010.

We still haven't heard anything from Apple regarding iPad 2 sales numbers but their next quarterly conference call, scheduled for April 20, will no doubt give us a definitive answer.

We're still guessing they sell every single iPad 2 they can make. You?
