Rumor: Sprint Will Get iPhone 4, Won't Get iPhone 5, Something Something iPad 4G

Apparently Sprint has begun briefing its sales associates about a major upcoming product launch, and the word is that the carrier will be getting iPhone 4 this fall but will have to wait until next spring for iPhone 5. Which... maybe? It's one anonymous source, and there's not much clear logic behind it, so we're holding off for now. Oh, especially because the same source mentioned a 4G iPad 2 this fall, which nope! Not for even a whisper of a second. [TUAW]

You know what happens when you have a kid? You don't sleep any more. You flush your bank account clean. Oh, and science informs us that your sperm count also plummets for a few months. Which maybe isn't the worst thing! At least that way you're less likely to have even more mouths to feed.

That is to say, password and PASSWORD work equally well, as would pAsSwOrD and PaSsWoRd. But! If your password is password then pAssword won't work. See? Boring. But fun to do once just to prove to yourself that it works. [ZDNet]
