REIでLabor Day Salesを見て来ました。肝心のゴアテックスのジャケットなど欲しいものは定価でした。サウスレイクユニオンのGreat Northwest Soup Companyでハムとブリチーズのパニーニとチャウダーを食べて、Discovery Park South Parking LotからNorth Parking Lotまで歩いてきました。プジョーサウンドが穏やかな波で、上空ではKLM 737NGの新型機がテスト飛行を気持ちよさそうにしています。帰りはPike Place Le Panierでパンとフリナンドを買いました。
The iPhone 5 could go on sale on Friday, October 7, with preorders to start on September 30, according to the latest rumors in the ongoing saga of the hotly anticipated next edition of Apple’s smartphone.

Citing intel from its own sources, 9To5Mac said yesterday that Apple had been eyeing either October 7 or October 14 as potential iPhone 5 launch dates. But with preproduction apparently running smoothly, the site says, Apple has opted for the earlier date.
Apple will reportedly offer the phone for preorder a week before it hits store shelves, looking at either September 29 or 30, though 9To5Mac’s sources pin the 30th as the most likely date. Assuming the preorder date is accurate, at least for now, that also means Apple would have to hold its iPhone 5 unveiling sometime in September. Apple typically shows off new iPhones and iPads at high-visibility media gatherings some days or weeks ahead of the devices going on sale.
The October 7 date has also been floated by TiPb. However, the tech news site suggests taking the reports with a grain of salt since even if the date is on the money at this point, Apple’s plans are fluid. Even 9To5Mac admits that “the date could and likely will change again.”
But October itself has been strongly suggested as the launch month for the iPhone 5 by All Things D’s Kara Swisher, pointing to information from her own sources.
