With this year’s Apple WWDC hours away, the rumors are most-definitely piling up. John Gruber of Daring Fireball is positive the next-gen iPhone will be named “iPhone 3GS”. “I expect Apple to announce updated iPhones with significantly faster processors, twice the RAM, and twice the storage. I expected prices to remain the same as the current lineup: $199/299 for 16/32 GB, respectively. The video camera is going to be a major selling point.” John’s also expecting an entry-level iPhone with a lower price of $99.
As excited as we are, we’ve learned to take all rumors with a grain of salt. If you want to see what else John thinks, go here.
German car manufacturer Mercedes Benz must be getting bored as they are looking to break into the emerging high-end bicycle market. The line consists of a folding bike, a new mountain bike and a racing bike. You can fold the folding bike in a matter of seconds and this mechanism is patented. It can be folded into two positions, one of which allows it to be pushed and steered, which is convenient for public transport situations. The folding bike also eight gears, disk brakes and a luggage rack. It’s actually their entry-level model with an enticing price tag of $2,410. (more…)
This fall, Shanghai’s Apple Store will open its doors for the very first time. Up until now, we didn’t know what those doors would look like, but we are glad that some generous chap out there leaked these images. Architect Ben Wood mixes Apple‘s glass-and-steel minimalism with more traditional Chinese design. It’s a massive structure with three stories and we’re assuming lots of spiraling stairs.

Matter, one of NYC’s up-and-coming design and art shops, has in stock this “Stack” storage tower by Established & Sons that really captured our attention. Made of MDF and Plywood, Stack is a tower of ‘floating’ drawer units that can be pushed and pulled in both directions. This will often result in a random and irregular formality that is both fascinating and unusual to the eye. Stack is available with 8 or 13 drawers.

The iPhone-like waiting lines might emerge this Saturday as Sprint and Palm are set to release the Palm Pre, a multitouch smartphone that periodically out smarts the iPhone. It’s got the standard features like GPS, Wi-Fi, camera, as well as tilt sensors. However, it’s got a smaller body, an actual keyboard plus a changeable battery. It’s also got the ability to multitask, allowing you to play internet radio while you read a PDF or even compare two open email messages, something the iPhone can not do.
So what will Saturday bring, bang or bust?
