On today’s River Mornings with Melissa & Jack (9-10)
– Today the announcement is expected from Apple concerning the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. Think of the iPhone 5S like the iPhone 4S -- an update to the current iPhone with some new tricks. According to the leaks, the iPhone 5S will look like the 5, though it might come in a new gold hue. It is expected to have one big difference though on its home button: a fingerprint reader. The 5C is a plastic, lower-cost version of the iPhone and is expected to also make its debut. According to the many leaked photos of the phone, it will come in a series of colors, including yellow, white, green and blue.
Toys R Us Gender Controversy

After meeting with campaigners, the chain have said they will now ensure their marketing is more inclusive, as well as removing explicit references to gender in store. Are we possibly being a bit over-sensitive/over-PC here?
