Pope Benedict XVI has finally managed to jump aboard the Twitter bandwagon from December 12th of this year onwards, at least this is what the Vatican has confirmed. The Pope’s username is pretty cool, considering how the faithful billions should start to keep a lookout for the username, “@pontifex”. No idea on whether this particular username will be retained for all the other Popes that come after Pope Benedict XVI, but that is not what we are here to talk about today.
Greg Burke, senior media advisor to the Vatican, claims that “pontifex” means “pope,” in addition to being a synonym for “bridge builder”. How fitting for a man of his stature. I do wonder what kind of Christmas message does the Pope have in mind this coming holiday season, and whether he will say all he wants to say in just 140 characters. Just how many followers do you think that the Pope would be able to garner with this bit of news going out? Will he outdo all the Beliebers out there?
Yes, we have read about unlocked iPhone 5 units being made available online sometime at the end of last month, in addition to an official word from Cupertino themselves that the iPhone 5 will ship to many more countries – 50 in total, later. I guess folks who do not have a hard time dealing with this thing called “impatience” would be pleased to hear that, and will keep their fingers crossed that shipping times for the iPhone 5, when made available in their respective countries, would not be pushed back too far.
Well, apparently for folks living in the Asia Pacific region, it is said that your order for an iPhone 5 has been pushed back already, and there is a pretty high chance of you receiving it within a week’s time. 9to5Mac claims that Apple has managed to reduce iPhone 5 shipment times in Australia, New Zealand and some other Asian countries by 50% – which is just two to four days. Perhaps the iPhone 5’s supply has finally started to catch up with demand. What do you think?
