Veena Malik’s car accident

As Pakistani actress Veena Malik was under death threats for quite a long time. Now after her car accident on her way to Lahore, the question arises whether it was by fate or a pre-planned hit!
On Monday night, the controversial actress was hit by a vehicle some eight kilometers away from Thokar Niaz Beg and got injuries on her shoulder, arms and legs and is in hospital in Lahore.
According to Malik’s manager, Sohail Rashid, she was driving the car while there were four other people in the car as well. There were two gaurds and two other people with her, while she was driving herself. A speeding vehicle overtook Veena Malik’s car, hit its side door and raced off. The car went off balance and collided.
A boy who was sitting on the front seat with Veena Malik said: “It seemed as if they deliberately hit our car. We couldn’t see their faces. They hit us, and saw our car colliding. They would have stopped had they hit us by mistake.”
From Sohail’s story, it seems to be a pre-planned hit but Sohail’s story again is elusive in itself!!

There were no official reports of deaths or injuries. The Saab 340 turboprop can hold 30 to 36 people.

Local media said the plane went down in the province of Rio Negro, near the town of Prahuaniyeu.

It said that air traffic controllers lost contact with the flight after its pilot sent an emergency call at 8:50 p.m. local time.

Ambulances and firefighting units were sent to the scene of the crash, in a hard-to-reach desert area of Patagonia with few roads, local television reported. Aeronautic authorities had no immediate comment.

iPhone 5

App store developer FutureTap revealed via twitter that they got their first crash report from a device using the new iOS 5. What does this mean? This means that apple is field testing the iOS 5 for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch with applications in the App Store. The application crash was related to the iOS 5 maps and location function.

This could mean Apple has changed their Maps and Location API, which may cause problems for GPS Apps and the like made for the iOS 4. Apple be officially unveiling the iOS 5 at the Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference this coming June. Apple will likely be releasing the iOS 5 alongside the iPhone 5 sometime in September 2011.
iPhone 5 (or the iPhone 5G, as some are calling it) rumours are flying thick and fast already.

Will the 5th generation iPhone deliver ultra-fast mobile internet? What other specs will it feature?

Let’s raid the iPhone 5 rumour fridge to find the tomatoes of truth amid the stinky stilton of baseless speculation.

But first, our colleagues on have rounded up the latest rumours in the iPhone 5 video below.

iPhone 5 release date

The Apple Worldwide Developers’ Conference 2011 date has been announced as 6 June 2011, so it’s possible we’ll see the iPhone 5 break cover there. However, Jim Dalrymple at The Loop says that this year’s WWDC will be about software, not hardware, with Apple focussing on iOS and Mac OS.

This fits with Apple’s established rhythm of iPhone releases, with new models appearing in late June or early July each year. So it’s a safe bet that the iPhone 5 release date (UK and US) will also be late June or early July.

The usual July release date was mentioned by Engadget’s source too in January 2011 – meaning the standard release cycle looks set to continue.

A new report from China later stated that Q3 (which still includes July) is now the earliest we will see the iPhone 5, after the disaster in Japan pushed back supply of key components.

On 20 April 2011, it emerged that the iPhone 5 release date may now be September 2011 rather than June/July. This date was cited by three sources who spoke to Reuters.

iPhone 5 form factor

The Wall Street Journal reported that: “Apple is also developing a new iPhone model, said people briefed on the phone. One person familiar said the fifth-generation iPhone would be a different form factor than those that are currently available… it was unclear how soon that version would be available to Verizon or other carriers.”

This has since been backed up by reports from Engadget we reported on 17 January 2011, which state the design will be a ‘total rethink’.

Of course, since the iPhone 3G was followed by the 3GS it’s possible the new iPhone won’t be a total refresh and we’ll see an iPhone 4S (or iPhone 4GS) before an iPhone 5.

However, reports from China have backed up the larger-screened, metal chassis-sporting iPhone 5 rumours, so the redesign still seems firmly on the cards.

On 22 March 2011, China Times also reported that the iPhone 5 will feature a 4-inch display.

A rumour we covered on 7 March 2011 suggests that the new iPhone will do away with the glass back and opt instead for a metal back which will act as a new iPhone antenna.

And an Apple patent that we reported on on 7 April 2011 suggests that we could see the bezel put to good use on the new iPhone. The patent describes how visual indicators and touch-sensitive buttons could be incorporated to the space around the iPhone screen.

Rumours that we covered on 3 May 2011, suggest that there may even be two versions of the new iPhone: a ‘standard’ iPhone 5 and an iPhone 5 ‘pro’. Apparently, Apple is buying in components of differing quality, and those parts wouldn’t be required for a single phone.

A cheaper, smaller iPhone 5 – an iPhone nano

A prototype version of a smaller iPhone is said to exist, built to ward off competition from cheap Android handsets.

Rumours around an iPhone nano picked up again on 13 February when the Wall Street Journal claimed that the so-called ‘iPhone nano’ exists and may even be on sale later this year.

Those iPhone nano rumours may hold little truth, though. As we reported on 18 February, the New York Times cites an anonymous source who says there will be no smaller iPhone from Apple. “The size of the device would not vary,” says the source.

A white iPhone 5

The Economic Daily News is reporting that white iPhone 5 glass is being shipped, with a supplier called Wintek being the sole touch panel vendor for the white iPhone.

iPhone 5 specs

According to the Chinese Economic Daily News (via AppleInsider), with the exception of Qualcomm chipsets – which would replace the current Infineon chipsets in the iPhone 4 – Apple’s sticking with the same suppliers for the 2011 iPhone 5G components.

We’d expect the basics of the iPhone 5 specs to get a bump – more memory, faster processor, and more storage.

The specs? A new antenna, 1.2GHz processor (possibly dual-core) and a larger screen: 3.7″ instead of 3.5″. The iPhone 5 may also be made from a new kind of alloy, or maybe meat.

In other rumours which surfaced on 15 February 2011, Digitimes is reporting on information supposedly leaked from component suppliers that claim the iPhone 5 will feature a larger, 4-inch screen. Digitimes quotes the source as saying that Apple is expanding the screen size “to support the tablet PC market as the vendor only has a 9.7-inch iPad in the market.”

We’re also hearing word of a multi-core design, in keeping with the rest of the mobile world, as Apple looks to improve both battery life and performance.

The iPhone 5 will also get a massive graphical boost as it moves to a dual-core GPU – this could herald true 1080p output from the new device, according to our news story on 18 January.

UPDATE: On 10 March 2011 it emerged that the A5 chip, found in the new iPad 2, looks to be headed to the iPhone 5, bringing enhanced functionality and dual-core power.

iPhone 5 digital wallet

There’s been some speculation that Apple might include Near Field Communication (NFC) technology in the iPhone 5G, turning it into a kind of credit/debit card. However, as notes, “Apple has looked into NFC before” so this might not be imminent.

However, with the tech being inside the Google Nexus S, the time for NFC may finally be here.

UPDATE: On 24 February 2011, we reported that an Apple patent has revealed an e-wallet icon on the iPhone homescreen. This adds credence to the rumour that iPhone 5 will feature NFC.

However, on 14 March 2011, reports in The Independent cited sources from ‘several of the largest mobile operators in the UK’, who said that Apple told them not to expect NFC in the iPhone 5. So perhaps we’ll have to wait for iPhone 6 for that.

But who to believe? On 22 March 2011 China Times reported that the new iPhone will include an NFC chip.

LTE support

At least one analyst thinks the iPhone 5 will support LTE, super-fast mobile broadband, in the US. That would make the iPhone 5G a 4G phone, which won’t be confusing at all. LTE is certainly coming – AT&T plans to roll out its LTE service in 2011 – but an LTE iPhone has been rumoured for a while. USA Today floated the idea of an LTE iPhone on Verizon last year.

iPhone 5 camera

Speaking at a live Wall Street Journal event, Sony’s Sir Howard Stringer was talking about the company’s camera image sensor facility in Sendai, a town that was recently ravaged by the recent Japanese earthquake and tsunami.

According to 9to5Mac, he said something along the lines of, “Our best sensor technology is built in one of the [tsunami] affected factories. Those go to Apple for their iPhones… or iPads. Isn’t that something? They buy our best sensors from us.”

iPhone 5 price

If the iPhone 5 is an evolutionary step like the move from the iPhone 3G to the iPhone 3GS then we’d expect the price to stay more or less the same, although in the UK higher VAT rates may well mean a higher price tag.

iPhone 5 pictures

A spurious photo of an iPhone 5 front case has been unearthed by a Chinese reseller, suggesting that the next Apple handset will feature an edge-to-edge display. We’re not convinced it’s a genuine Apple part, though.

On 17 March 2011, we reported on another supposed set of leaked iPhone 5 cases, this time looking remarkably similarly to iPhone 4 cases.

What do you want to see in the next iPhone? Hit the comments and share your thoughts.

I suppose I shouldn’t really patronize the likes of Makro because I believe that wholesalers like Makro and Walmart (which is entering the Indian market) are going to impact heavily on the small mom & pop operations in both countries.

But off and on when I am on a schedule, it is just so convenient to go to one place and buy everything in airconditioned comfort. It is a 15 minute drive from home, there is sufficient parking and I get all my grocery shopping done quickly. Of course it is quite irritating if you don’t want to buy in bulk … but if you don’t want to buy in bulk, i guess you shouldn’t be in a wholesale store.

Anyway, enough with the rambling. Let me go ahead with the story. Yesterday morning I got to Makro at around 9 a.m. There were very few people around so I quickly got the stuff I needed and made a beeline for the check-out counter that had no queue. There was a young lady at the counter who asked if I had a Makro card. This is a standard question posed to me each time I shop there. Usually they just say okay and proceed to check you out.

Yesterday was different though. She told me that without a Makro card number she could not proceed with the transaction. It would take a minute to get my “details” and I would have a card. I guess it would have been easiest to just give her the information and proceed.

However, I wasn’t in a mood to be forced into having yet another card made for no apparent reason. So I asked this young lady what the advantages were to having a Makro card. She looked confused so I elaborated. “In other countries if you apply for a store card, you get something in return. It entitles you to a discount or it’s a stored value card or something of that sort.” She thought about this and said that the Makro card entitled the customer to nothing like that. So I asked her again why I should want to have one.

Poor kid – it wasn’t her fault and I felt sorry for making her life difficult (actually it was nice to see so many young women working in different positions in the store) but I was trying to make a point. If Makro has a card for which they want customers to provide information about themselves, then in exchange for this information they should be providing a service. Why should my “details” be freely available to them or anyone else? Why have a card if there was no perceived advantage/value to the customer? Are they trying to restrict the number of customers who walk through their doors?

Anyway, the young lady went off to several of her colleagues and supervisors and I could imagine her saying to them that there was this argumentative woman asking all sorts of difficult questions and refusing to apply for a card (she needed my National ID Card to complete the registration – I asked her why I should be out on a Sunday with my ID card – although I did have it in my wallet). The saga ended when she came back and checked me out without another word.

It was only when I got home that I noticed that, in order to bypass the problem, she had been asked to use the ID of Ashraf General Stores whoever they are. Absolutely ridiculous! Shouldn’t the management of Makro think things through before trying to implement a policy such as this? Or is the customer just supposed to roll over and play dead because they say so?
