    Okay. Too many people are yelling about the iPad Mini.

    I hate to say but this is false.

    The rumor was started on Twitter and passed the man passed It on to his friend. Only doing the same with his. Known as a "Circle Jerk" like Hot Potato.

    Until Apple confirms it.... IT'S FAKE.

    You must not have been paying attention for last couple of months. It has nothing to do with Twitter.

    Just like Siri, Retina Macs, White Touches, iPhoto for iOS and LTE turned out to be fake?

    While a smaller iPad may not be confirmed yet, there's clearly enough info out there to make this a credible discussion without a sourpuss spoiling the fun of being a MacRUMOR reader.

    Well using the same logic, there is no iPhone 5 either. Since Apple hasn't confirmed any replacement for the iPhone 4S there's not going to be an update this year. We are just going to have to use our 4S's for another year.

    I believe the correct terminology you were seeking is a "Reach Around", not Circle Jerk.

    Apple has been know to send out fake indentifiable decoys out to the sub-contractors to see if they will be leaked. If the decoy is leaked out, then they will be able track back to the source of the leak, and weed out the bad sub-contractor.

    Let me just ask you, how many fake iPhone 5 pictures have you seen? :D

    Siri was acquired by Apple a year before the release of iPhone 4, so that is not so hard to guess Apple will integrate Siri into the iPhone. If Apple had successfully acquired Dropbox, it would have been built into iOS by now.

    iPhoto was seeded to developers a few month prior to it's release too to test out the PhotoStream service

    Every knew about Retina Mac, because the Retina display ID strings were left behind in OS X Lion

    Every cellular carrier in the US is building up the 4G LTE network, therefore, it is logical to say all future iPad and iPhone will be 4G LTE compatible. In fact, is it even a secrete that iPhone 5 will support 4G LTE?

    There is a white iPad, a white iPhone, so why not a white iPod touch?
