Hot weather and burning sensation keeps mingling with me, together also with dry land and scorching hot sunny sun.

This is the first time that I'm going to have summer classes in my entire college life. No, it's not what you think, i didn't failed any of my subjects, it's required in our curriculum.

Developers are also canvassing and collecting opinions about the features such as the new A5 processor and dual cameras - and also about the lack of a higher resolution retina display.

It is said the developers taking at face value, Apple's promise that the A5 will deliver twice as the performance of a CPU and nine times the graphic performance of the first generation model (iPad 1). Obviously, the game category will mostly the one to benefit. This is one great news for the gamers and techie ones! This is a Wow!
