Here’s a few items for today’s digest:

The HP ElitePad 900 will run Windows 8 and is  1.4 millimeters thicker & .2 lbs heavier than the iPad 3; A minuscule difference that Apple’s marketing department will no doubt exploit. Release is set for January, 2013 and will most likely be competitively priced with Microsoft’s Surface tablet. HP’s newest product is reviewed by both ZDNet and C|NET.
  • Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, has issued an apology over the less than stellar performance of its iOS 6 Maps application in which he admits that the company fell short of delivering a world-class product.
