No vacations in June for AT&T employees

Boy Genius has the news that AT&T has blacked out the month of June for employee vacations in their stores. In the past, they've done exactly that when, oh, say, a brand new iPhone launches. So it's possible that we could see a new iPhone out and ready to go even before it's expected in July of...

Now that the iPad has been out and tested for a few days, developers have a much better idea of what's exactly under that perfectly-formed hood.

More AR, this time with Twitter, on the iPhone

Here's another augmented reality iPhone app that might be slightly more useful for those of us outside of London than the Nearest Tube app we showed off the other day.
