A report making its way around the internet is that Apple is holding a media event, which will focus on the iPhone 5, to be held on the 4th of October. The event is said to prominently feature Apple’s new CEO Tim Cook, who faces the challenge of convincing people that Apple will be the same company without Steve Jobs at the helm.

Another one of those ‘CEO replies to a customers email’ story. Apparently a German iPhone user sent an email to Steve Jobs, the Apple CEO, asking if they will be supporting the iPhone 2G in the future.
The answer, a resounding NO. Short a sweet as usual, but if this is a real email it looks like those looking forward to OS 4.0 on their first generation iPhone will have to splash out on a new device, no OS 4.0 for you!
Is Apple supporting/updating the iPhone 2G in the Future?
This is an interesting one, over the past few weeks a number of emails were sent to Steve Jobs, he responded to a few! They are short and not so sweet! No doubt he gets enough to make any iPhone weak at the knees. Here are some of the most interesting ones.
“The reader asked if there was a way he could transfer his Google Docs to his iPad through iWork.com or iDisk“. Jobs’ reply? “Yes.”
“Reader Julio R. asked Steve if we can expect a universal mailbox on the iPhone”. His answer? “Yep.”
“The iPad photo app looks incredible. Are there any plans to support Picasa’s faces and albums in iTunes….If not, please can you look into supporting the Picasa library format?His answer? “No, but iPhoto on the Mac has much better Faces and Places features.”
