If your the kind of person that's a bit creeped out that most of your apps use Apple's Location feature and would like to turn it off either entirely, or on an app by app basis, Apple has made it easier to find the setting. Navigate to Settings>Location, that's it.
On the iPhone you can now share nine photos, Copy five photos, and print, well at least 250 photos, we got tired of tapping on pictures.

Bad news for printing, you still have to have an AirPrint-enabled HP printer or use AirPrint Activator.

We’re still a couple of days from the release of Apple’s new iPad 2, but already analysts are speculating the refreshed tablet will be nothing but trouble for Cupertino’s rivals, who may go from playing catch-up to bursting the bubble on competition.
If there’s one group that loves Apple’s iOS device perhaps even more than their parents, it’s toddlers. As every parent knows, keeping them occupied throughout the day can often be a challenge -- and one that the iStoryTime line of apps is ready to come to the rescue.
