Apple preparing production of iPad 3 - report

The Wall Street Journal says Apple is gearing up to begin iPad 3 production from October.

THE APPLE STORE has gone back online after some downtime earlier this morning. The site now includes a new ‘Magic Trackpad‘, and also allows shoppers buy the iPad directly from the manufacturer – they previously had to visit an Apple reseller to get hold of it.

GOOGLE’S PROFITS for the second quarter were less than expected, although the internet giant continued to grow its earnings, Reuters reports. This is the first time in two years that the company has missed Wall Street’s profit estimates.

Google generated a handsome $6.82 billion for the three-month period ending on 30 June. A 24% increase in costs ate into that revenue, but the company says it will continue to invest in research and development. Google told BusinessInsider that it was “very pleased” with its results for the quarter.

An additional 1,200 employers hired in this period will take a toll on profits in the next quarter. Shares in the company dropped nearly 4% due to investors’s concerns over Google’s rising costs.

INTEL HAS POSTED strong profits for the second quarter, making a new record for the 42-year-old company. The chipmaker reported an intake of $10.8 billion, with gross margins of 67%. The company recorded a loss of $398 billion for the same period last year.

Figures for the April to June 2010 period helped boost company shares on Wall St which surged in late trading after the announcement. The company has benefited recently from a renewed interest in computers and laptops, selling a record number of chips for large servers.

Analysts say that Intel’s strong performance is a general indicator that the tech sector will continue to rebound from the recession throughout the coming year.

PAUL CEGILA is claiming he owns 84% of Facebook, the social network founded by Mark Zuckerberg.

Cegila says he signed a contract with Zuckerberg for $1,000, and a 50% stake in the firm, in addition to “an additional 1% interest in the business for every day after Jan. 1 2004 until it was completed”. The contract was for web design and developing work.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the contract is for “the purchase and design of a suitable website for the project Seller [Mr. Zuckerberg] has already initiated that is designed to offer the students of Harvard university [sic] access to a wesite [sic] similar to a live functioning yearbook with the working title of ‘The Face Book.”"

The Journal also points out that Cegila’s claim, said to be worth $12bn – $22bn predates the formation of Facebook, and may relate to Zuckerberg’s previous project – Facemash.

A spokesperson for Facebook called the lawsuit ‘frivolous’.
