Thieves that go after Apple iPhones and iPads have become such a huge issue in New York that the NYPD has assigned a team of cops to work with Apple to get the stolen goods returned to their rightful owners. In December, it was reported that crime in the city had risen, with a significant increase in Apple product thefts.
The partnership between Apple and the NYPD is remarkable because Apple does not typically get involved in the retrieval of stolen goods, so this new task force could potentially mark a shift in the Cupertino-based company’s policy of non-involvement.

In the first few months of 2011, the iPad owned more than 85 percent of the tablet market. By mid 2012, the numbers had sunk to around 70 percent. Part of the reason is an overabundance of cheaper tablets. Another part is that the iPad mini is cannibalizing sales of its big brother.
According to research firm WitsView, the larger tablet will regain momentum later this year when Apple launches the fifth-generation model.
Apple and Samsung have literally been suing each other all over the world for over a year and a half. Some countries side with Apple’s claim that Samsung blatantly copied the design of the iPad. Some countries side with Samsung’s assertion that the Galaxy Tab is its own tablet with its own distinct look.
Yesterday, U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh told lawyers for both sides that they need to “focus and streamline” their cases to 25 patent claims and 25 accused products.
The tech world has been speculating for quite some time about whether Apple will launch a line of colored iPhones and iPads. Recently, the company made waves when it launched multicolored iPod touch devices. However, we have yet to see anything other than black and white for the other iOS gadgets. That is, until yesterday when a series of supposed iPad mini images showed up on a tech blog forum sporting a blue logo.
When Apple launched iOS 6, they did away with Google’s mapping service in exchange for their own. The Apple Maps app was so bad that the company’s CEO made a public apology and recommended that users seek an alternate map app for the time being. After a few months, Google launched its own map app for iPhone (still not optimized for the iPad), which led to an influx of iOS 6 adoption from users who refused to update their software until they could use Google Maps on them.
