iPhone 5 coming out?

The latest iPhone 5 rumor is that Apple is currently testing three prototype models of the iPhone 5, and the rumor comes from a Taiwan based website which has in the past published information about new Apple devices that have been true.

According to the rumor one prototype iPhone 5 is identical to the existing iPhone 4, except for a larger battery and a more powerful camera, although this doesn’t tie in with the earlier rumor that we heard about the iPhone 5 featuring a larger display.

Apple Testing Three iPhone 5 Prototypes?

The other reported prototype which sound interesting, is an iPhone 5 with a slide out QWERTY keyboard, this is something we heard last year and didn’t materialize, and something we don’t think Apple will produce.

If Apple are looking to make more version of the iPhone 5 we suspect they will launch two separate models, a new iPhone 5 to replace the iPhone 44 and an iPhone mini to go after budget Android devices.

Update: The image above is not the iPhone 5, it is an iPhone 4 with a keyboard case.

A garden mezzanine provides the ideal spot for summer stargazing. French website Du Cote de chez Vous provides detailed DIY instructions–unfortunately they’re only available in French, so you may need a little help from Google Translate.

Love These Pictures!

I saw these pictures on Craftgawker (an app) and I had to post them!

The top two were taken by Odinodin (I wonder if that's his real name!) who blew sop bubbles to capture the images. Aren't they enchanting? I especially love the first one; it makes it seem like a whole different world!

Ben Heine plays on perspective in a different way, by adding drawing into his compositions. His drawings are so perfectly placed they become one in the same. This quirky hand-drawn goat head can’t help but make you smile.

Get ready to be instantly transported into a different perspective!
