Apple finally sets a date for the iPhone 6 reveal

Ever since the iPhone 5S was released last September, the Internet has been abuzz about what the iPhone 6 might look like. Although a small army of Apple-obsessed Internet sleuths and tech journalists have found out enough to steal a bit of thunder from any official reveal: that the iPhone 6 will come in two sizes, 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches, look similar to the 5/5S, and will include the TouchID sensor that was introduced on the 5S. But no matter how well-sourced and consistent information is, the only way to know for sure is to wait for Apple to finally reveal the thing. Which, fortunately, is only a mere two weeks from now.

Only one count remained: the Section 1983 claim that state officials (notably prosecutor Jeffrey R. Buhman) violated the constitutional rights of the Brown family in years of criminal investigation and public accusations. He has now ruled for the Browns in what is now a clear sweep on all counts.” READ FULL STORY
