The weekend is here, and with comes the final installment of our daily recap for the month of March. But hey, don’t be sad or blue -- there will be plenty more tech news coming on Monday, when we jump head first into the month of April and see what new and delightful surprises the spring season might bring us. In the meantime, sit back and ride out the rest of March by catching up on the news for Friday, March 30, 2012.
March is rapidly winding to a close, but it continues to be an eventful month full of software updates (Retina Display and otherwise) and Apple-centric news galore, which today includes the release of audit results from Apple’s controversial manufacturing at Foxconn, as well as a detailed study on Cupertino’s tactical moves in the smartphone patent wars against Android. So what are you waiting for? Let’s get to reading the news for this Thursday, March 29, 2012.

You know the big news of the week was the new iPad. It's almost like there was no oxygen left in the room for any other article under discussion, but we found a few to tease you with before we get to the goods. Don't worry, they're still great stories, but in case you missed the latest iPad day, we have quite the round up for you.
