Apple’s iPad 2 may finally be on its way to store shelves. A rumor from within Apple says that the company will announce the device during an event on March 2nd. The release would be consistent with Apple’s production cycle and could step on the heels of Motorola’s Xoom launch. In other news, Amazon.com is offering unlimited streaming of television shows and movies for Amazon Prime subscribers. For $79 a year, customers get free 2-day shipping and access to Amazon’s library of over 5,000 shows and movies. The company’s war chest of cash allows it to pay high licensing costs of media so consumers don’t. And finally, a new scientific study showed that 50-minutes on a cell phone is enough to change your brain’s cell activity. Areas closest to the antenna showed an increase in brain metabolism, but that isn’t necessarily bad news. Much larger shifts in metabolism happen naturally.
