Step-by-step Tutorial: How to Jailbreak and Unlock iPhone 3GS Using RedSn0w 0.9.15 (Windows) [iOS 6.0]
UPDATE: Apple released iOS 6.0.1, so you can NOT restore to earlier firmware (both original and custom), unless you have saved your SHSH keys. If you are on iOS 6.0 right now you can use this tutorial.
If you have iPhone 3GS with an old bootrom version 359.3, the jailbreak is untethered. If your device has bootrom version 359.3.2 and higher, jailbreak will be tethered. You can detect your bootrom version using this tutorial.
Tethered jailbreak means that each time you restart your device you will need to connect it to a computer and run redsn0w.
Microsoft Office application for iPhone and iPad, expected to start setting on the iOS App Store in early 2013. It offers free preview of documents, but there is subscription for Office required to edit documents. On Wednesday, The Verge revealed details of the software. The "Office Mobile" application will be free distributed, but it requires Microsoft Office account. The Office Mobile application will include Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. With an annual subscription to the Office, the user will be able to edit documents. Office Mobile is also expected on the Google Android platform, although the application will appear on Apple's iOS first.

Chpwn has posted an image showing Cydia running on a jailbroken iPad 4.
Last month, chpwn revealed that his jailbreak 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.
Semaphore has announced an update to TinyUmbrella utility that brings support for new firmwares iOS 6 and iOS 6.0.1, as well support as new devices - iPad mini and the iPad 4. With TU users can save their SHSH keys for firmwares. Later these SHSH keys could be used for iOS downgrades.
I've updated TU to support iOS 6 and 6.0.1. The new iPad mini and iPad 4 are also supported as well as the new iphone 4 stealth revision.
Sorry for the delay folks. I'm still working on some pretty dang well needed changes to TU. The wait will be worth it...

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.

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.
