This year’s iPhone launch is the “S” cycle, which means the devices likely won’t feature new hardware designs but instead could include other tweaks — for example, Siri, Apple’s voice assistant, debuted with the iPhone 4S. The company is expected to add its ForceTouch technology to the new devices, allowing the iPhones to differentiate between hard and light taps on the display. Other tweaks could include a faster processor and camera, as well as more color options.
One of the new features will probably not be the male voiced replacement for Siri, but you never know.
Over on Imgur.com, parents of a young girl have posted a letter from their daughter’s school in which they are informed that their daughter’s lunchbox is banned from the school.

In case you missed it Fogle was arrested and later pleaded guilty to charges involving child pornography.
INDIANAPOLIS – Longtime Subway pitchman Jared Fogle capitalized on his business trips to New York City to arrange sexual encounters with minors in luxury hotels, federal prosecutors said in charging the Indiana man in a case that also documented his acceptance of child pornography from a close associate.
Fogle agreed Wednesday to plead guilty to allegations that he paid for sex with girls as young as 16 and received child pornography. The case already has destroyed his career with the sandwich-shop chain and could send him to prison for more than a decade.
Prosecutors allege Fogle knew the pornography he received had been secretly produced by the former director of his charitable foundation, which sought to raise awareness about childhood obesity and arranged for Fogle to visit schools and urge children to adopt healthy eating and exercise habits.
Immediately after his court appearance, Fogle’s wife served him with divorce papers and filed for full custody of the couple’s children.
