Noon News: iPad 2 Successor Launch, Paul Ceglia Claims Facebook Ownership, Office For Mac 2011 SP1, Windows 8 Leaked

Rumours have become a part of Apple’s marketing strategy prior to official releases of its products. One month before the iPad 2 official launch, people we’re already talking about the possible launch of the iPad 2 successor, coming this autumn. However, that won't be happening as the company can't risk jeopardising iPad 2 sales.

Paul Ceglia claims the he invested somewhere around $1000 in Facebook way back in 2003, the amount supposedly being 50% of the total cost of Facebook during that time. Ceglia has hit back with a fresh lawsuit and this time he is armed with substantial evidence that might just prove his ownership.

A new Facebook scam is preying on the fans of the “Twilight” novel and movie series, recent reports have suggested. The scam reportedly hijacks the account of its victims, and then spreads further by sending itself to everyone on their existing friend lists.

The Office for Mac 2011 SP1, also known as update 14.1, brings a host of bug resolutions and security enhancements to Microsoft's Outlook, PowerPoint, Excel and Word applications for Apple’s platform. The update brings with it some new features and functionality as well.

According to a report by Redmondpie, Milestone 1 of the upcoming Windows 8 has been leaked in the wild, with the pirated version downloaded from torrent sharing platforms. Though the leaked version is believed to be quite old, dated September 22, last year, it certainly is capable of providing awaiting fans many a hint about this new OS from the software giant.
