Using saved SHSH blobs, iH8sn0w was able to downgrade his A5 iPad 2 from iOS 5.1 to iOS 5.0.1. He says his method will also work with the A5X processor once firmware updates are released for the new iPad. That means that it's possible to restore to any firmware you want on A5 devices, as long as you have the SHSH blobs saved.
This is great news for those with the iPhone 4S and newer iPads. As it stands now, if you have to restore for any reason, you will be forced to upgrade to the latest firmware. This could leave you without the ability to jailbreak for some time.
First of all it's sim-less: it doesn't use a simcard by our phone mobile operator. It can grab your data directly by the mobile network, also in 4G LTE. It uses a new audio section, with two panel speakers, on the rear of it aluminum forged unibody. All the controls are now on the top and the edge is so thin!
The great news is the new iPhone haven't just one retina display. It has three ones! One strip screen is on the top, to show you all the network infos, clocks, notifications and so on. The bottom one is for App dock, multitasking panel and so on. The central one is only for the desktop: more space, more freedom.
The home button is integrated into bottom strip display and it can be activate thanks to the closer motion sensor. In addition you've a "led powered edge". You can use it to show the strength of battery life or to show you a preferred caller: you can choose the color thanks to the led edge dedicated app.
Here are some beautiful photos. Take a look:

Citing South Korea's Maeil Business Newspaper, Reuters issued yesterday the unverified report claiming that Apple has begun placing orders for a 4.6-inch Retina Display chosen for the next-generation iPhone. The anonymous source also claims that the new iPhone is likely to be revealed in the second quarter of this year.
The rumor suggested that domestic Korean suppliers have received the orders, making Samsung and LG likely candidates as suppliers. Both companies have supplied displays for Apple's mobile products in the past.

As usual it is unclear when public version will be available. Still great news!
The iPad show that LTE service on the device is significantly faster than previous-generation 3G networking. Some said that the average download speed is 17 megabits per second on Verizon LTE network, while on AT&T's network it reaches 12 mbps.

Hebrew-language newspaper Calcalist now reports that Apple and Anobit, which was acquired by Apple late last year, are actively recruiting workers for the company's research operations in Israel. That goes against the rumors claiming that the downsizing was said to be part of the acquisition, as some of Anobit's employees were no longer needed at the company.
According to the report, Anobit has changed its name to HDC (R&D center in Herzliya). The company's former president, Airel Maislos, is believed to be the new senior executive at Apple's development center.
Last month analyst from Piper Jaffray Gene Munster said that Apple was investigating offerings of components for its rumored television set, contacting suppliers to find out what production capabilities they can provide.
In a new report IDG News claims that Intel is currently working on shifting its Thunderbolt standard to the PCI-Express 3.0 protocol. Such move means that the company could double data transfer speeds comparing with the existing implementations based on PCIe 2.0 protocol.
Intel in the future will support the PCI-Express 3.0 protocol to shuttle data faster between host devices and peripherals, an Intel spokesman said in an email. Computers with Thunderbolt interconnect currently communicate with external devices using the older PCI-Express 2.0 technology.
The company will incorporate PCI-Express 3.0 in Thunderbolt, but could not provide a time frame for when it will be accomplished.
