Tech Today: No second Nintendo Wii U controller

Apple looking to refresh the MacBook Pro and Mini, Firefox turns up prematurely, Murdoch plans to cash-in on the App Store, Obama plans to tweet more and Nintendo's touchscreen controller arrangement. Check out the best of what went on while you were enjoying the famous British summertime this weekend.

Wii U games only need one touchscreen controller
It looks like only one lucky gamer will get to use the prized Nintendo Wii U touchscreen controller because Ninty is only planning to develop games where one is required. While it is possible, there are no plans at present to sell additional controllers because they'd be too expensive to buy on their own.

Firefox 5 browser arrives a day or two early
It's only twelve weeks since Mozilla let Firefox 4 into the wild but this weekend saw the release candidate for Firefox 5 arrive on Mozilla's ftp site. You can download this slightly tweaked version for Mac, PC and Linux now, or wait for the official version on Tuesday.

New York Post blocks content through Safari
UK readers of US tabloid the New York Post (that's right, both of you) will have to buy the official app from the Apple App Store in order to view its content, after Murdoch's paper blocked the site through the Safari browser on the iPad. The move could be the beginning of a trend to force users to pay hefty subscription fees through the App Store.
