It happened last night.I’m sure that many Apple fans and tech gurus were watching the live updates from some famous IT websites.In case that you haven’t known what they disclosed in this event,just share with you guys the latest updates.
Hardware upgrades are the main part of this Apple event,another two are OSX and iOS.

Improves file upload security on hosts with dangerous security settings.
Cleans up old WordPress import files if the import does not finish.
Introduce “clickjacking” protection in modern browsers on admin and login pages.
More details can be found here.Most existing users could get updated automatically,or you also could choose to manually download and then install it by yourselves.
Well,it’s not the only update for the day.WordPress 3.2 released its latest update-beta 2.Be aware that it’s a beta version of WordPress and so it’d better to test on a non-production website as it may be working not stably at all.
New version includes some changes since beta 1:
Google Chrome Frame is now supported in the admin, if you have it installed. This is especially useful for IE 6 users (remember, IE 6 is otherwise deprecated for the admin).
The admin is less ugly in IE 7.
The blue admin color scheme has caught up to the grey one, and is ready for testing.
It’s announced that WordPress 3.2 should be officially announced by the end of this month if all results from beta testers show good.I wish it could be on the right track.Eventually I wish to see the improvements on loading the control panel and editors as currently they’re still running a bit slow.
Microsoft started to sell its latest phone products 7 months ago and now it pushes out a huge update for them,The code name is ‘Mango’.It’s said to have more than 500 improvements and new features and promised to provide much better user experience than ever.
In Malaysia,DiGi is the first mobile service provider to announce white iPhone4 would be available in the market,even open to public to register for interest.However,it’s not the first one could have stocks to sell,Maxis wins this time!
Maxis remains the existing plans for white iPhone 4 too,so nothing special to share here.
Meanwhile,Apple announced last night that the latest iOS 4.3.3 is available to download.
Actually there isn’t be fresh news because I had concerned on all above for several weeks.So I just need some more time to review the performance and then make some final conclusions-the changes are substantial or inessential.
Today afternoon,I received an email sent from BlogRush.This is the first Email I get from BlogRush since I used its service and blogged for it 3 days ago.
At a glance of it,I thought it was just news of updates.Furthermore I found that there was nother ‘congratulation’ inserted in the words which concludes more valuable information about latest movement of BlogRush.
