Check out this video of what is being claimed to be a leaked webpage from Apple for the new iPhone 5. Check out while you can as my guess is that Apple will get this off the web pretty quickly!
Lion has a neat little feature discovered by @AppleFortyTwo. If you need a word looking up, three finger tap on your multitouch pad and hey presto, a neat dictionary pop up appears. See picture.

BGR have been testing iOS 5 and giving daily updates of Living with the operating system. And the feedback is good with BGR declaring iOS 5 the one to beat. With features such as iMessage beating Blackberry’s BBM service, the notifications app working so well, the Reminders App and tweaks to Mail all cited as filling the gaps that iOS previously had.
Can’t wait for a consumer version, hopefully it will be even better. Also check out 9to5Mac for various other features they are constantly discovering within iOS 5.
The Telegraph and MacRumors have highlighted a quote from a spokesperson for the Performing Right Society. The spokesperson it quoted as saying that Apple are “a long way off from any deals being signed.”

This adds further to our post earlier this week regards a delay in the service outside of the US.
