Today's most interesting stories in technology, media and entertainment:

The Apple App Censors are out in force. The latest group of apps to be banned -- WiFi locators. Last week it was apps with overtly sexual content, today WiFi finders, what will they ban next week? Only Apple knows for sure.

And, while Apple is busy app burning, Sony is getting ready to launch some new app phones that will play PSP games and, a couple of new tablet/eReader products. They're even getting serious about the Sony version of an App Store, temporarily named Sony Online Service. Don't let the name fool you, Sony is going right after Apple.

Not to be outdone, Verizon is getting ready to introduce two new Microsoft branded phones, maybe as early as this summer. These are the first phones to be marketed under the Microsoft name. What's next ... a Google, Microsoft throwdown at a Verizon store near you.
