Conde Nast Pubs Coming to iPad, PlayStation Network Down

Highlights from this morning's other big tech headlines....
  • Wired has already demonstrated a preview of its app for the iPad, and now several other prominent Conde Naste publications are preparing to make their own debuts on the Apple gadget. GQ, Vanity Fair, and the New Yorker will reportedly all release iPad apps by the end of the summer. [From: The New York Times]
  • There was a cataclysmic, and hilarious, online meltdown last night, as the PlayStation Network crashed and mysterious problems began affecting Sony consoles. Users reportedly experienced crashed games, error codes, and other problems, all of which may be related to faulty leap-year programming. [From: Engadget]
  • Unlike other social networking sites, Twitter has remained relatively unaltered throughout its existence but may undergo some significant changes soon. One site engineer's ambiguous tweet (and an ominous one for services like TweetDeck) is indicating that "nifty" new features may render desktop clients redundant. [From: Business Insider]
  • Apple's gadgets typically cost more than those of its competitors, so that price must reflect the company's devotion to its employees and strict production standards, right? Apparently not, as a survey of Apple's suppliers has revealed a disturbing 19th-century production model plagued by discrimination, underage workers, inflated work hours and low pay. [From: Engadget]
  • The European Union's Data Protection Working Party wants Google to remove U.K. Street View images after 6 months instead of after the typical year. Because of privacy issues, the organization also wants Google to notify areas prior to performing Street View tours, a potential move that sounds paranoid, but could definitely inspire some hilarious hi-jinx. [From: Mashable]
  • The first official Windows Phone 7 Series-branded mobile is in development, and Engadget scored some hands on with the prototype on the Engadget Show this weekend. Details are still limited, but the sleek and attractive LG slider model definitely passes the eye test. [From: Engadget]
