Many people complain that the iPhone or iPod touch doesn’t heft their entire library of music, games, apps and movies in its pricey 32GB bulk. Then, there are those who like me, plug in, sync iTunes with what we want to listen to and view for the next few days. It takes about a minute extra and costs thousands of pennies less. Well, for that latter group, the 99$ iPhone may see an upgrade to its 3GS iteration, a move which will see even the poor sods racing by the nearly stationary 16GB 3G owners at 6,7x the speed. This report comes from the ninjas at BoyGenius who have obviously planted snap-happy informants at Rogers.

The reason we so deem, being in our nature an iPhone-dedicated site, is that rumours are at core, useful in conveying vain hints, desires or at worst, the obvious.
This ‘rumour’ is that of the latter type.
What never stops in this constantly spinning world of ours? You would be right if you guessed the Earth – as it always spins, rotates and is doing a crazy somersault around the Milky Way. Other than the Earth however is another constantly moving and evolving ecosystem: electronics. Only 200 years ago, the first computer ‘programmes’ were being written by a famous poet‘s only non-bastard child, Ada Lovelace. Back then, computers did not even run on electricity and eagre programmers had to actually study or be rich and educated. Times have changed.
