It was a big week for Apple’s lawyers, but probably not a pleasant one. The verdict came in that Apple was found guilty of Price Fixing on E-books. Their bad week continued when the lawsuit between Apple and Amazon over the term “App Store” was dropped. Apple is apparently looking to design their own mobile chips with an investment in an unnamed chip manufacturer. Oddly, instead of rumors about the iPhone, we got a pair of rumors about the iPad mini. First, we heard that we would have to wait for the iPad Mini with a retina display until 2014, as there were supply constraints for retina displays. Though it is in the realm of what most of us expected, there was a rumor that the iPad and iPad Mini were still on pace for a fall release.
