Earlier this year, the Transportation Security Administration relaxed a few of the protocols surrounding the inspection of electronic devices being brought on board of an aircraft. The long and short of it is that if your device is smaller than a "standard sized laptop" there was no longer a need to remove them from your bag when going through a security checkpoint.

Did you really think we could go for more than a few weeks without the mentioning a new Apple-centric lawsuit? Of course not.

Yesterday we reported on a cool app called iDOS, a universal emulator that allowed you to run all kinds of elder technology on your iOS device, was pulled from the App Store less than 24 hours after its auspicious debut. Turns out there may have been a valid reason for Apple to pull it -- and it doesn’t involve its emulation powers.
Granted the sporting world may be focused on the start of the upcoming World Series, or an NFL season that's in full swing, but the NHL season is also underway. With that, iPad puck fans can look forward in the near future to being able to watch live games on their devices.
It’s a sadly familiar tale: A cool app gets approved into Apple’s App Store and less than 24 hours, it’s gone -- the victim of a mysterious approval that probably should never have been.
