    Rumour has it that Apple's next iPhone will be 2mm thinner (a 20% improvement over its predecessor) and have a 4-inch screen. The larger screen means a new aspect ratio that will mean a 10mm jump in height. In addition to the larger screen, it's also been rumoured that the new iPhone will also have a metal back.

    Speaking of which, the iPhone 5 SIM card tray appears identical to the one in the iPhone 4S. No surprises there, but if Apple really wanted to save space they'd move to an slot-loading SIM card slot with some kind of flappy cover.

    Jawbone has announced a $299 Big Jambox. Our own super-sleuth James Croft reviewed the original Jambox around this time last year, but the one thing the Big Jambox features is a bigger sound compared to its predecessor. It launches May 15th.

    Apparently EA isn't pulling the plug on Rock Band for iOS, and the notification that said Rock Band will not be playable after May 31 was apparently sent in error. Players will still be able to play Rock Band offline, which includes any DLC they have purchased.

    ILounge has a look at at three popular iOS reading apps: Instapaper, Pocket, and Readbility. There's no doubt that you have a lot of choice when it comes to reading on the iOS platform, but which one is for you?

    Also from iLounge is a genuine wooden case for the iPad 2. It's protects both the front and the back, available in a variety of different types of wood, and looks pretty great if you like the wooden aesthetic.

    Matt Gemmell has a look at a few iPad productivity apps, which include apps for getting stuff done. Wether it's writing, planning, code editing, or just browsing, there's likely an app in there for you.

    Archive Utility is a utility that does exactly what its name suggests. It comes on every Mac and helps you out with archive files, and yet there are a few secrets about Archive Utility that you may not have known about, as featured by Macworld.

    JPEGmini puts your iPhoto library on a diet by compressing your JPEG files even more than they already are without any visible quality difference. It's now available from the Mac App Store for $20.99 in our local.

    If there's one thing about computers, it's that you can spend an inordinate amount of time just doing nothing. Time management isn't exactly the easiest thing to master, but there are apps like Time Sink that help out with that by showing you where exactly you spend you time.

    How important is getting an iPad with more storage?

    I had a 16GB iPad 1, and found it limiting. I now have a 64GB mini and never come close to filling it up (really like the size). A 32GB might be a happy
