According to TechCrunch, Apple removed the 500px app for iOS from the App Store because of the nude pictures. The recent acquisition of ISO500 to 500px from Pulpfingers also removed from the App Store, but is still available for download.
Digitimes reported that Apple was planning to launch a larger and cheaper iPhone in the second half of this year, seeking to strike a blow in the emerging markets, as well as to compete with the increasing size of the screen that is inherent to Android devices.
The carrier signed a contract with the startup company in 2009 to include its functionality to Droid smartphones, and it even filmed commercials showing Siri as an Android add-on. But the deal with Big Red fell apart when Apple purchased what has become one of the iPhone’s most popular features, which subsequently stopped competitors from adding the service to their devices. The report said:
Another progress on the public jailbreak is reported by hacker planetbeing recently. Planetbeing has given us hope that a public jailbreak is near with his latest tweet.
Tons of progress the last few days. I think the future is looking bright for jailbreaking.
IDG News Service reports that Kariem McFarlin, the robber who stole Apple products and other items of equivalent value at $ 60.000 from the home of Steve Jobs' family in last July, has been sentenced to seven years in prison.

Recently the iPhone have captured a record 53 percent of the smartphone market in the U.S, but when it comes to its second place in the handset market (feature phones and smartphones combined), a new report said LG moved Apple to third place during December thanks to strong sales of its highly popular Optimus G.
So here’s something we haven’t heard in a while: good news on the jailbreak front. Pod2g and planetbeing have found two new vulnerabilities for future iOS 6 jailbreak. Unfortunately the initial code execution for a public jailbreak release is still missing.
Made some nice progress today with @pod2g. I think I'll try to reward myself with a nap.
pod2g: @planetbeing oh yeah! 2 new vulnerabilities in a day, chance was with us. But we still miss that initial code execution for a public jb :/
It's great that progress is being made. Hopefully, the two find that last piece of the puzzle and are able to release their jailbreak to rest of us.
The iPhone Math is highly unusual name that does not conform to Apple's traditional naming scheme, so it is unclear if it is a code name of the device or a potential mistranslation.
Lala's music was streamed over the Internet instead of stored locally. The service allowed users to listen to a collection of more than 7 million titles as a stream over the Internet – much like Spotify and Pandora today.

Reuters reports that Sharp, one of the major partners that produce displays for Apple`s mobile devices, has reduced the production of displays for iPad at one of its plants.

"Since the launch of the Amazon Cloud Player app for iPhone and iPod touch, a top request from customers has been the ability to buy music from Amazon right from their devices. For the first time ever, iOS users have a way do that – now they can access Amazon’s huge catalog of music, features like personalized recommendations, deals like albums for $5, songs for $0.69, and they can buy their music once and use it everywhere,” said Steve Boom, Vice President of Amazon Music.
