As you might know Apple launched iTunes Radio only for the US. This service will be available in other countries, but some time later.
However there is a way to enable it outside the US now. All you need is to create US iTunes account and iTunes Radio will show up in iTunes upon re-launch. We’re not sure if this easy ‘hack’ will make it to Gold Master but Radio might be in your country by then anyway.

PopCap Games has announced that Plants vs. Zombies 2 will be released on July 18th and unveiled a trailer for the upcoming game. The sequel will be previewed at E3 next week and will launch for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
Plants vs. Zombies 2 will be free to download and a vast majority of the game will be free to play; however, players can purchase upgrades and other in-game items.
Almost every iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch user faces a problem of listening music at home. Some use headphones, others listed through embedded speakers, however everybody wants to connect their gadget to some loud high quality home stereo system.
There tons of dock stations for various players and smartphones including ones for iPhone and iPod. However dock stations allow users to plug in just a single set of devices due to connection port incompatibilities. Even Apple changed it's port when iPhone 5 was released with lightning port. So if you actually bought expensive iPhone 4 dock station and realized you want iPhone 5 - you're in trouble, because a new dock station for iPhone 5 is needed. There are adapters and converters on the market that might help, but the idea is clear - there have to be some technology that would allow us to use different devices from various manufactures including iOS, Android, Windows Mobile, etc. Here comes Bluetooth. It is not just supported by almost all modern smartphones, players, tablets and even notebooks, it also does not require users to physically connect their gadget to a stereo, because it is wireless technology.
Today we want to take a look at Creative D200 - wireless speaker system that supports Bluetooth. While the quality of this device is quite good, the price is attractive as well. You can get one for about $100.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has been fairly accurate regarding Apple hardware releases, claims that Apple's smart watch will not be released until the end of 2014.
Apple may not have adequate resources to develop an iWatch version of iOS because it may require big changes to iPhone and iPad iOS this year. In addition, wearable device components aren’t mature. For these reasons, we think mass production of the iWatch is more likely to begin in 2H14, not 2H13 as the market speculates.
While Apple has earned much praise for its iPhone design aesthetic, it also has received criticism for durability problems, with many users experiencing the issues after dropping their smartphones onto hard surfaces.
In the fifth-generation iPod touch and iPhone 5 Apple began using sapphire crystal in order to cover the rear camera of the devices, providing superior scratch resistance and durability. Apple notes:
In the six weeks since evasi0n was released, however, close to 18 million devices have already been jailbroken, according to data from Jay Freeman, the administrator of the Cydia app store for jailbroken devices. He says he’s counted 18.2 million unique devices running iOS 6 visiting Cydia, including 13.8 million iPhones, 3.4 million iPads, and 1.1 million iPod Touches. Those numbers vastly exceed previous jailbreaks such as Jailbreakme 3, a popular hacking tool for iOS released in the summer of 2011 that was used on around 2 million devices, according to a count at the time by creator Nicholas Allegra.
Available for: iPhone 3GS and later, iPod touch (4th generation) and later, iPad 2 and later
