The new iPad, which has been anticlimactically named “the new iPad,” has the tech world buzzing after its unveiling by Apple CEO Tim Cook at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts today. So what’s in a name? Well, aside from a lukewarm reception to the letdown name itself (as TechCrunch.com marveled, “The new iPad will just be called ‘iPad.’ That’s not confusing at all,”) it’s those noticeable, but not entirely groundbreaking new features like the retina display, a 5-megapixel rear camera, access to 4G LTE networks and A5X GPU chip for sharper graphics. With no major changes to the iPad itself, much of the feeling around the web is:,“The new iPad is a minor update, but you’ll buy it anyway.”

Today was a huge moment for Apple as CEO Tim Cook took the stage at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts to announced Apple’s latest riff on the “revolutionary” iPad. It was the first announcement since Apple founder Steve Jobs’ passing in October (just a day after Apple iPhone 4S announcement), and Cook, joined by marketing chief Philip Schiller, did not spare the drama as he touted the company’s “post-PC revolution.”

Triple Town co-creator David Edery confirmed on his blog last Sunday that the development studio filed a copyright infringement suit against competing studio 6waves Lolapps (also known as 6L) in response to Yeti Town, a virtually identical game released two months after Triple Town, which one review called “the exact same game, only this time with snow.” Edery alleged that, among other offenses, 6L entered into a nondisclosure agreement with Spry Fox, only to abruptly end negotiations when Yeti Town was released. Today Rex Ng, the CEO of 6L, fired back, telling Venturebeat, “This accusation is unjustified and plainly not true. We have not broken the NDA signed between 6L and Spry Fox.” 6L also released this statement to EW: READ FULL STORY
