Sometimes a feature that has only existed in the realm of rumour is pushed back to an as-yet-unreleased device, and this time around it's happened with near field communication devices on the iPhone 5, wait, make that 6. We're talking two generations away, people — might wanna take a closer look at that crystal ball of yours.
Also on Patently Apple this morning is the fact that Apple are trademarking Thunderbolt. Wait, isn't that Intel's job?
iLounge says there is code in iOS 4.3 that points to an A5-powered iPhone 5, which makes sense. Perhaps Apple should just start putting random extraneous code in all versions of IOS just to throw people off the scent, but then people would just complain about having to download an extra hundred megabytes every time an iOS update was released.
Yes, TUAW, VMWare does bring virtual machines to the iPad, but it's really nothing that hasn't been done or seen before; the VMWare client for iOS isn't, of course, running an virtualised environment, it's simply viewing one over your internet connection.
Also from TUAW this morning, an admittedly interesting story about why Apple.com hosts movie trailers for upcoming movies, especially when other content-delivery systems could do a much better job. Makes sense, but only if you know the reasons behind the move.

Assuming owners of the current model MacBook Pro can afford it, OWC has confirmed that the new 2011 MacBook Pros support 8GB RAM modules. With two slots in each machine, 16GB of RAM is nothing to laugh at — the price, however, is.
Sometimes life gives you lemons, but sometimes all you want to do is remove a launch agent from launchd, the Mac OS X launch daemon.
Finally this morning, if you haven't watched the iPad 2 guided tours on the Apple website you really should.
