Apple is reportedly ending its iPhone exclusivity deal with AT&T this week. The rumored move may happen at the creative event in which Apple will most likely unveil its tablet computer. While AT&T may lose its exclusive deal, its yet to have been determined which networks the iPhone may be available on.

In other Apple news, the company may soon be rolling out a solar powered iPod. According to a recently published patent, the green iPod could be powered by both electricity and solar power. While the regular battery would fuel the device, a solar power cell would activate when the battery was running low, effectively powering the iPod for a longer period of time.

Nasa recently sent the first tweet from outer space. The message was posted Friday from the International Space Station, where NASA engineer T.J. Creamer tweeted “Hello Twitterverse! We r now LIVE tweeting from the International Space Station — the 1st live tweet from Space! 🙂 More soon, send your ?s.” The new web connected international space station brings unparalleled connectivity between Earth and the far reaches of our ever expanding galaxy.
