Saturday 12th January: In the News this Week

It's the week of Saturday 12th January 2013 and...

iPhone Mini
Rumours started earlier this week about a smaller and cheaper iPhone being announced at the end of this year. We don't know how big the screen will be or if it will even run iPhone apps. When Apple was questioned about this they denied having even started planning a smaller iPhone however they also said this last year about the iPad Mini.
I honestly think that it is highly unlikely that Apple will make a phone cheaper than the iPhone because there is not much of a  market for small phones any-more.

The young Mexican driver, Sergio Perez, had his first photo shoot with his new team, McLaren earlier this week. Perez will be starting the 2013 F1 season racing for the successful team along side Jenson Button. In the past Perez was part of the Ferrari Driver Academy however he quit that in 2012 when he started racing for Sauber.

CES 2013
Earlier this week it was the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Samsung, Lenovo, Sony, Panasonic and many more huge brands were there announcing and launching new products. From 4K TV's (next thing after HD) to phones you could leave underwater for half a hour - CES 2013 had it all.
My highlight of the show was Lenovo launching the first mini ultra book. It is called the IdeaPad Yoga 11S and it has an 11.6-inch touch-screen display. The only downside with this unique product was the extremely short, 6 hours battery life it has to offer.
