Apple’s October 22 event confirmed
Apple today sent out invitations for a news event to take place on October 22, confirming a previous report from AllThingsD that the presentation would take place on this date.
GameSpot sister site CNET notes that the event is expected to bring news of new iPads and Macs.
The invitation says, “We still have a lot to cover,” with leaves of various colors emerging from the Apple logo.
The event is scheduled to take place at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco, California beginning at 10 a.m. PDT. It is not clear if a live-stream will be offered.
It’s supposed to cover the iPad 5

You may begin to notice, that it is WDC vs the People that is shaping up as the real battle … Not Democrats or Republicans, but the ruling elites are opposed by the people of the country.
And it’s the defund–Obamacare effort that has brought that to the top. And I bet you can see it as well. The ruling class of both parties, who for the most part are exempt from Obamacare, against the people.
WDC elites, vs the people of America.
And it is through the efforts of Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, and others, who have brought this out … And that was clear from Beohner’s Speech this morning. You know the debt is crippling your future and the country, yet they still think kicking the can down the road is the answer. More debt … For you to pay if you even have a job anymore.
Think what you would do if Apple’s website was the disaster that Healthcare.gov is…
And as you watch Big Government inflict their pin on the population, remember this is why the US COnstitution was written, and why Obama has to go extra Constituional to do this. It’s your Constitution, as long as you have the presence of mind to understand that.

Puts the focus back on security …::: Apple’s Latest iPhone Puts Focus Back on Fingerprint Security
Placing a finger on a computer or smartphone has long been proposed as a way to avoid the need for passwords to authenticate users of computers and other devices. People familiar with the matter said last week that Apple will include a fingerprint scanner on the more expensive of two iPhones it is expected to unveil Tuesday at an event at its Cupertino, Calif., headquarters.
And it works equally for all computers and game consoles. But does the NSA agree, or will they just make use of that to make another loss of privacy commonplace?
So now NSA needs a place to store all those fingerprint files, for easy access, and to screen terrorists, of course. … OK by you?
Here’s what Apple is serving up in the iPhone 5:
64-bit A7 chip: The world’s first 64-bit mobile phone with over 1 billion transistors. According to Apple, it has 56-times the processing power in the new processor, which can make some apps run as much as five-times faster.
Fingerprint reader: Dubbed “Touch ID,” users can now access their devices with the in-built fingerprint reader. Embedded in the device’s home button, now a stainless steel “detection ring,” it can now read fingerprints 360-degrees at a very high resolution of 500 pixels-per-inch. It can also be used to make in-app purchases.
