It's been another busy day for the tech world - here's the best of the days news in digestible format:
O2 has created their own version of the good the bad and the ugly today with a string of announcements. First off, the good and the announcement O2 will host the Apple iPhone 4 on PAYG from launch day. Secondly is the bad and a less than perfect early upgrade deal for iPhone 4 customers. Finally, the downright ugly and O2’s decision to scrap inclusive unlimited data packages in place of money-spinning pay-as-you-use style data plans. Many O2 customers will not be happy bunnies.
Apple’s iPad tablet took the world by storm when launched but now finds itself in stormy waters following a data breech at AT&T in the states that saw the private information of 114,000 iPad owners leaked by a hack. iPad owners do have something to smile about though, a possible quirky addition to the tablet range of accessories, a holder to make the iPad look like a classic Apple Mac. Finally the OS that will give the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch the coveted multitasking, iOS 4 has leaked online.
