Morning Mix Show Notes 10/5
Dead or Canadian, what you need to know about the new iPhone and the first casualty of the new fall season.

There is no new iPhone, but there is an iPhone 4S. It's the same size as the iPhone 4, but it's souped up. It's faster, has a better camera and longer battery life. It also boasts a faster download speed and supposedly a better antenna. It also has voice recognition assistant named Siri. All you have to do is ask it a question. "Can I get directions to Lincoln Depot?" "Do I need a jacket?" "When was Millard Fillmore elected?" and it will respond to you. You can also speak text messages and emails and it will dictate them, it will also read your texts and emails to you. The iPhone 4S is also available for the first time on the Sprint network. You can also get it if your carrier is Verizon or AT&T. It also costs the same as before. It starts at $199. They go on sale October 14.
NBC's new drama The Playboy Club has been canceled after just three very low rated episodes. The premiere had five million viewers, episode 2 had 4 million viewers and Monday's episode had just 3.5 million viewers, so it was yanked. The Parents Television Council has been campaigning against the show since May. The time slot will now be filled by Brian Williams.
