As we wait for August to wind down and a fresh crop of Apple products to sprout in September we manage to find other things to talk about. This week that includes Apple and diversity, calling your mother (or else!), whether we’re so human-impaired that we need Facebook to tell what is and isn’t a joke, a list of iPhone 6 rumors, and a heartfelt “well done” to Apple for a just as heartfelt commercial.
