Best Buy is having a sale called “Grad Sale” that is going on now through June 21. The sale will give a discount of $50 to any iPad mini with Retina display.
Hands-on impressions of the new iPhone 5 have begun appearing online.

It took a while for Mark Zuckerberg’s company to deliver native iPad compatibility, but ever since, the updates have been pretty rampant. Released today, 4.1.1 is the second update since the third-gen iPad dropped nearly three weeks ago.
The latest in Apple related gossip reckons the fruit company to be working on a brand new mobile device, complete with a five-inch Retina display. Larger iPod touch? Smaller iPad? Surely not, you might dismiss.
The third generation iPad which will be unveiled at a media event next week is widely speculated to come with a high resolution Retina Display.
Kevin Ng – developer of iOS game – WordCrasher Blitz didn’t want to wait for the official announcement. He has already created some graphics for his upcoming game – Food Run for iPad 3’s 2048 x 1536 “Retina Display” resolution. He says he wanted to figure out what an iPad 3 Retina Display would mean for his upcoming iOS game.
Look who’s back. The LCD plus digitizer combo that we first laid eyes on last month seems to have leaked out again, still claiming it’ll be part of Apple’s upcoming (unannounced, but popular knowledge anyway) iPod touch 4th generation refresh. It continues to insist it’ll have a front-facing camera, pointing to the rounded hole in its forehead as evidence, and we’re now inclined to trust it that little bit more given the leaking site’s prior record. A visual inspection reveals it to have the same fused design as on the iPhone 4, which naturally invites speculation that the retina display will be pulling some PMP duty as well. Skip past the break to see the new screen side-by-side with Apple’s latest phone display and third-gen iPod touch hardware.
The sun will rise, pigeons will annoy, and Daring Fireball’s John Gruber will get inside scoops on Apple product releases. So it goes. This time he’s touching on, erm, the iPod touch, making an offhand (though firmly declarative) comment on a post about the Dell Streak: “if you wait a few weeks to buy the Touch, you’ll get one with a Retina Display and dual cameras.” The man’s not one to fool around with such matters, so we tend to believe him here. It also helps that nothing he’s saying would be really surprising — a new iPod in September? With features trickled down from the most recent iPhone? Then again, that camera has proved elusive before.
