iPad MiniNew iPad Mini Means More Screens in Front of TVs (Lost Remote)
To date, 100 million iPads have been sold in just over two years, accounting for 91 percent of all tablet Web traffic, according to Apple CEO Tim Cook in his presentation on Tuesday. And now Apple has taken the wraps off a 7.9-inch iPad Mini and a new slate of fourth generation iPads, which means more screens in more places. USA Today The iPad Mini will be priced at $329, and the new screen has resolution of 1024 x 768. But it doesn’t sport the sterling retina display that’s on the latest generations of its larger sibling. AP Customers can begin ordering the new model on Friday. Apple’s late founder Steve Jobs once ridiculed a small tablet from a competitor as a “tweener” that was too big and too small to compete with either smartphones or tablets. AllThingsD Before revealing its much-anticipated tablet, the company showed off a 13-inch Macbook Pro with a Retina display, refreshed Mac mini and next-generation iMac. The new iMac is the thinnest desktop computer Apple has made to date, measuring just 5 mm at the edges — 80 percent thinner than the previous model, if you’re counting. Macworld Cook presented the updated iBooks Author as part of an “iPad in education” segment during the introduction of the latest versions of Apple’s tablet. New in iBooks Author are new templates and portrait-only iBooks. Read more

Brazilian Judge Orders Arrest of Google Executive Over YouTube Videos (The Daily Dot)
A judge in Brazil has ordered the arrest of a Google executive after the company refused to remove two YouTube videos last week allegedly slandering a mayoral candidate in the city of Campo Grande. Judge Flavio Peren placed the order on Fabio Jose Silva Coehlo, Google’s president of operations in Brazil. AP The videos on YouTube make incendiary comments about an alleged paternity suit aimed at Alcides Bernal, who is running for mayor of the city of Campo Grande. Google said in a Tuesday statement that it rejected the decision by Peren, which included an order for a statewide, 24-hour suspension of Google and YouTube. The Financial Times The order, which Google is appealing, is the second time this month that an electoral court in Brazil has tried to arrest a top executive at the company for failing to delete YouTube videos attacking a mayoral candidate. While Google frequently faces challenges worldwide over videos or images uploaded to its websites, especially in the Middle East, Brazil is among the top sources of requests for content removal. Reuters In the second half of last year, Google removed four Orkut social network profiles after an electoral court order, the company said on a portion of its website called the Transparency Report. The Verge The controversy over these ads echoes that over the trailer for “Innocence of Muslims,” an anti-Islam piece that has sparked protests worldwide. If popular outcry exists in this case, it’s much more muted, and the video below has gotten only about 8,000 views since late August. Read more
