Regardless of their horrible sound quality and quite generic aesthetic, Apple's iconic earbuds that came standard with the purchase of an iPod or iPhone were quite popular. The amount of other brands commonly used didn't nearly stack up with the whopping 600 million pairs of Apple earbuds that were shipped. But three years ago, Apple caught a whiff of the overall disappointment shared by their earbud users and has taken the design back to the drawing board. Among the numerous other announcements made today at Apple's press conference, the Cupertino-based company also announced the revolutionary new design to replace the iconic design previously used; these are known as EarPods.
Based in San Francisco, Timbuk2 has been manufacturing backpacks for decades. With so many years under the company's belt, it's probably safe to assume that it has mastered the techniques required to produce a comfortable yet fashionable backpack - these can be seen in the company's newest additions to its extensive lineup: The Power Commute and the Power Q backpacks which both offer a stylish form while also enabling the owner to charge his or her iOS devices while on the go.

As if we're done covering what was announced earlier today at Apple's WWDC keynote! Hidden among all of the commotion surrounding the other announcements made at the keynote, Apple has quietly launched a new accessory for its flagship tablet, the iPad.
Zac Altman, a user of Instagram, posted a photo on Friday depicting a new WWDC 2012 banner hung outside the Moscone Center in San Francisco - this banner confirms the existence of the previously rumored iOS 6 and also that Apple will in fact unveil "the future of iOS" this Monday at its annual WWDC keynote.
Although the keynote where iOS 6 with a new Maps app, a possible slight change in iOS' UI color scheme, Facebook/iOS integration, new Macs and more are rumored to be introduced, is still a few days away, an indication of what we're to see is already apparent thanks to multiple WWDC banners that have been hung around the Moscone Center.
Apple's patented slide to unlock method for unlocking an iOS device has received a decent revamp via a designer on Dribbble.
Apple is considered to be the largest technology company in the world. Undoubtedly, they stretch far and wide throughout the planet, and it's a bit difficult to see things in proper perspective.

Sadly to say, today was the last flight of NASA's Space Shuttle Discovery. A disappointment to both hardcore NASA buffs and simple-minded space fanatics alike, surely. However, the elegance of the historic moment, if you will, was captured using none other than the iPhone's brilliant camera.
