These are your opponents in Poker Night 2.

Earlier today, Apple Online Stores went down to give way for an updated storefront now showing Apple’s Father’s Day iPad sale. It’s not really a big sale in terms of price reduction or anything, Apple just tied Father’s Day on June 16 with its drive to promote its two flagship products right now: the iPad with Retina Display and, of course, the iPad Mini.

If a report at Digitimes is to be believed (and there’s not much reason to believe it should be) July looks to be a big month for Apple as the company begins to increase trial productions of the upcoming iPad 5. The rumor mill on this and other possible Apple hardware releases has been somewhat quite compared to previous releases, so let’s take a look at this one.
On Monday, Yahoo announced it had officially acquired microblogging platform Tumblr for approximately $1.1 billion.
