We’ve seen the motherboard, the dock connector, the charging cable and even full-fledged versions, but for the first time we might actually have an accurate look, plus a comparison, of the iPhone 5.
Photos leaked today purportedly show the iPhone 5 in all its put-together glory, posed side-by-side with the iPhone 4.
The “5″ is longer and leaner, fitting in with rumored specs we’ve seen of a five-layered app display and 4-inch screen.
The bezel is also two-toned, unlike the mono-colored iPhone 4.
Here’s the iPhone 5 by its lonesome:

I mean, how can Motorola send me a defective unit back from repair not only once, but twice? I haven’t received it back yet from their third try, but oh well, let’s hope somebody on eBay will be happy with it. Okay, no more Motorola, all Samsung now, the Galaxy S Plus works way better anyway. In fact, everything is perfect, except for one little thing. The USB connector [...]

The Buffalo Dualie is a portable hard drive and a docking station for your iPhone or iPod.
It connects to your Mac via USB, enabling you to sync or otherwise manage either device while it’s in the dock. But as it’s also mains-powered, you can recharge your phone or audio player even when your computer’s switched off.
Behind the dock sits a 500GB HDD (supplied). Connecting through the rear dock’s USB outlet, the drive can be removed and carried around just like any other portable drive.
When used outside the dock, USB and FireWire 800 connections are available, with no power [...]

While similar in looks, the Zeppelin Mini is about one third the size of its big brother and it’s similarly lacking in audio power as a result.

However, the Zeppelin Mini does feature a swivel docking station for flipping your iPod into landscape mode if that’s how you roll.
And more excitingly, if you leave the dock plugged into your PC or Mac via USB, you can sync your iPod or iPhone [...]
