In today's tech news roundup, everyone is buzzing about the Vine app -- for a different reason this time. Twitter's overly hyped app for six-second video clips seems to have a porn problem . Users are posting pornographic videos, and Vine permits it. Apple has not yet pulled Vine from the App Store, even though it has a strict policy to ban apps with adult content. Could Apple be making an exception and giving Twitter time to clean up its app?

If you're curious what other video clips are being created on Vine, a few sites are showcasing posts in real time, such as Vinepeek , VineRoulette and Just Vined. Aside from being a tool for creating artsy, stop-motion animations, there's not much value to be found in Vine yet. You can share your early impressions of it in the comments, or email update@cnet.com.

Also in the feed today:

- There's talk of a 128GB iPad model in the works
