YouTube for iOS updated for iPhone 5, iPad, and AirPlay

You can now stream YouTube video via Apple's own AirPlay technology thanks to the newest update to the YouTube app for iOS, that being version 1.1.0.4136, aka the iPad and iPhone 5 update.

High-end home entertainment kit provider and style trend-setter Bang & Olufsen has outed its latest music system, but though the BeoPlay A9 goes wireless, it's certainly not discrete. The vast, round speaker system - which reminds us of an archery target, albeit one with touch-sensitive volume controls and a companion smartphone and tablet app - can be wall-mounted or stood on three wooden legs, streaming music around your home via DLNA and AirPlay.
