-The iPhone 5 might not be the last Apple product this year. I'm Bridget Carey and this is your CNET update. The iPad Mini rumors are ramping up again. It's been reported before that Apple could announce the iPad Mini some time in October, but now Fortune has the source saying that by next week on Wednesday, October 10, the press will get invitations for the mini news event and that, if it's true, means the iPad Mini could go on sale by November 2nd or earlier. There's also another report from a Japanese blog saying that the iPad Mini is already in production. Maybe, we'll know if there is there is truth to these rumors by next week, but not matter what, 7-inch tablets are the hot item this year. Between the new Kindle Fire and Nook tablets and the Google Nexus 7, yeah, Apple could very likely jump into it now. So, it's not moved out for the holidays. The sexy thermostat is back. Nest 2.0 has been unveiled and it's the second generation of the learning thermostat. It's designed by the same guy who works on the original Apple iPad design. The new Nest is 20% thinner compatible with more home systems and there's added support for android tablets. It costs $250 and will be available in mid-October and if you bough the original nest that came out less than a year ago, there's a software update with a few perks for you.
