the "failbreak" from @phoenixdev @chpwn in action on an iPad-mini http://twitpic.com/ba1ega (why failbreak? see @planetbeing's timeline)
Last month, chpwn revealed that his jailbreak for the iPhone 5 would be reserved as a failbreak. That means it will be limited to jailbreak developers and won't be released to the public. This is being done to make it easier to discover new exploits (which will be used for public release) in the future.
The iPhone Dev-Team has announced an updated version of RedSn0w and an upcoming update to UltraSn0w for iOS 6 compatibility.
Version 0.9.15b3 fixes the redsn0w “error 2601” that Windows users were seeing using the Restore button. It also fixes a related Windows iTunes error 14 for stitched files. Note that if you have a baseband, you should probably avoid stitching and simply use redsn0w’s native Restore (not iTunes).
Those lucky recipients of new iPad minis and iPad4s on Friday can use this redsn0w to save your 6.0 blobs off to Cydia. First connect your new device and turn it on, then use redsn0w’s Extras->SHSH Blobs->New and point it at the 6.0 IPSW.
Thanks to @iamgolfy for helping test the 2601 Windows fix!
You can download the latest version of RedSn0w from here.

Today The Verge
The discussion about the new iPad mini has mainly revolved around its display, which is said to account for 43% of the total cost of manufacturing. The display is reportedly based on a new "GF2" technology which allows for thinner display, but it lacks Retina-level resolution to which users have become accustomed in the new iPad and iPhone.
An informal test of strength performed by the third-party warranty firm showed that despite the extremely slim body, the new iPad mini is stronger than the Google Nexus 7 and the third-generation iPad.
Since the first shipment of the pre-orders for the iPad mini has already sold, tablets hit records wholesale and retail sales. About 850,000 units will be sold in first week of sales. In a report, obtained by AppleInsider, KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that in the first week of sales Apple may ship about 850,000 iPad mini, based on a check of the supply chain and logistical considerations, such as transportation.
But on Wednesday the escort services could be still found in the United States through Siri. Nevertheless, this feature seems to have been removed in China, according to the Times of India. In response to the messages from the users, Apple's customer service representative explained that the company had blocked information related to the escort services.

Apple on Tuesday announced that it will postpone the launch of iTunes to November 11 due to unforeseen delays and the desire to "bring to mind". In September, Apple said the new purchasing media and control center will be ready for implementation in October, but now the company delays the procedure until November, reports AllThingsD.
