Apple and Samsung haven’t exactly been on the friendliest of terms lately, continually flinging lawsuits at one another. Even so, they have this awkward relationship where Samsung is still one of Apple’s biggest suppliers. And there’s a reason for that.
Part of the reason why the iPad and iPad 2 continued to dominate the tablet space was that most of the “good” Android tablets cost just as much as their iCounterparts and many people viewed Apple’s tablet as a premium device. The original Eee Pad Transformer made some headway by launching at $399, digging under the cheapest iPad by a full $100, but even that was met with relatively limited success.
As the invite let us know, today was the big day. Apple hosted a special event in San Francisco this morning to unveil the new iPad to the world. Interestingly enough, it is not the iPad 2S, the iPad HD, or even the iPad 3 that we had expected. It’s simply the new iPad. I guess they’ve decided to take the iPod approach to product names moving forward, rather than the iPhone style of naming models.
Annoying co-workers and unmanageable older brothers causing trouble in your life? Help has finally arrived, provided you own an iPhone 4S/4/3GS, or iPad/iPad2 or iPod touch (or all if you are rich and a bit crazy about all things ‘i’). The iLaunch Rocket Launcher is a weapons system which will allow you to rain darts on those who intrude your personal space and it can be controlled with your iDevice.
A pilot program in Vancouver, Washington has replaced the BlackBerry devices issued to employees with Apple iPads, effectively netting $336 in data cost savings each year, as well as cutting down on the printing of documents by 40 percent.
It’s time you threw away your dumb walkie-talkie style baby monitor and try the “smart” way of keeping an eye on your little ones. The Smart Baby Monitor from French company Withings will allow you to check on your baby through your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The sensor-packed web cam was released in the UK last year and now US citizens can finally get their hands on it.
Next week, Apple is set to unveil their Apple iPad 3 in 16GB and 32GB sizes at a special conference in San Francisco. According to DigiTimes a source from within Apple’s supply chain says that there will also be a new version of the iPad 2 announced there as well, featuring just 8GB of memory and targeted towards the lower-end segment of the market.
Let’s just be perfectly clear. We’re reasonably certain that what is depicted in the video below is not what we’re going to see in San Francisco on March 7. Even so, this could offer a glimpse into what we might find in a future iPad in a time far far away. But the future does […]
We pretty much already knew that Apple was going to reveal the new iPad 3 next month, but now we can see official confirmation in the way of a special invitation to a special Apple event on March 7. But the invitation sent out seems to be showing something a little extra…
Apple certainly is not planning to bring Adobe Flash to their iOS devices, in fact they iBlocked it. But OnLive has managed to find a way to go around that, and much more. The company’s OnLive Desktop Plus, the new version of their OnLive Desktop remote access app, will allow you access to an entire PC remotely which is equipped with Flash.
What we think we’re seeing here are some spy shots of the iPad 3’s exterior casing and while the overall design is similar to the existing iPad 2, there are some notable differences.
As we get closer and closer to the unveiling of the Apple iPad 3, we’re also starting to see more leaks of the components that will make up the next-generation tablet. And today, we’re getting our first look at the supposed A5X processor that will power the upcoming iTablet.
I’m not sure how Steve Jobs would feel about this. He said that the 9.7-inch screen of the iPad was the “minimum size required to create great tablet apps,” but it looks like Apple is genuinely entertaining the idea of producing a tablet with a smaller display.
As you might remember, the original iPad and the iPad 2 debuted at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center. It is worth noting that the hall is free for the newly rumored date. Apple might have already booked it and could be keeping silent for now, just to enjoy the misery that we all go through thinking about the next generation iPad. And also March 7th is a Wednesday, a day that Apple is very fond of.
I’m not sure if the “iCADE” moniker is really still all that appropriate, because this really has nothing to do with gaming in the arcade anymore. It’s gaming in the living room. Like the other iCADE products, the iCADE 8-Bitty connects to your iPod, iPhone, or iPad via Bluetooth. The difference here is that they’ve expanded the scope to include Android folks, encouraging app developers to use the API to “make just about any game compatible with iCADE.” Current supported games include Muffin Knight, Super Mega Worm, Warblade HD, Space Inversion 2, and HyperBowl.
The speakers on your iPad and iPhone are not at all bad, but don’t cut it for watching a movie or hearing that special song. What we see here is the Zooka, a new wireless speaker bar. The Zooka is a Bluetooth speaker bar that has been designed to easily fit onto your iPad. It’s said to offer 5x the sound of the in-built speakers on your device, so that is pretty good. And it’s portable as well, that’s even more good.
Back in 2006, Taiwanese company Proview Electronics agreed to sell the rights to the iPad name over to Apple for $55,000. The problem is that Apple didn’t manage to secure the rights in China, where the name is still owned by subsidiary Proview Technology.
Saurik, the father of Cydia, highly recommends that everyone that has a jailbroken iOS 5.0.1 should make the upgrade to this latest Corona update. You can choose from two different downloads: one update that runs from Windows and the other directly for upgrading from iOS.
It seems a revealed photograph of the iPad 3’s internal specifications has just confirmed it will feature a quad-core processor and global LTE capabilities. It also mentions model number J1 and J2 as clearly different, though similar, devices with one being WiFI only and the other having WIFI and GSM/DMA/LTE options.
Rumors about the iPad 3 suggest that Apple has plans to bring out an awesome tablet to stay at the top of the market this year as well. But that does not mean that the task is going to be easy. It appears like Samsung has been secretly designing not one, but two different tablets (maybe even more) and the new slates will likely be unveiled at the upcoming Mobile World Congress later this month.
You might remember that Absinthe, the new untethered jailbreak tool from Dream Team, was previously released just a few days ago as a Mac-only solution, but they did promise that Windows people would get it too. So that day is now here.
Dream Team has done it ! Earlier today the A5 jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 has been released. The long awaited A5 jailbreak, is finally here and is very easy to use. This version of jailbreak eliminates the putting iDevice into DFU mode hence making the jailbreak process fast and easy.
Alesis released their new AmpDock yesterday at NAMM 2012, we got to get a first hand look at its features and specs. The AmpDock supports both the iPad and iPad 2, so we’re assuming it will work with the iPad 3 when that is released too as it looks like their’s quite a bit of play in the mounting area for variations in design.

Dream Team is making some major headway when it comes to jailbreaking the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.1. Pod2g and others on the team have been working hard to jailbreak the iPhone 4S and iPad 2, both of these devices use the A5 chip which has proven to be a tough one to crack.

Despite the name, the WikiPad is not a highly-optimized Wikipedia tablet as the name may lead you to believe, it just has a strange name. Still, what is unique about the WikiPad is that it is the first Android 4.0 ICS tablet to feature glasses-free 3D touch and an interesting gaming dock attachment.
Back in mid-November we talked about Gametel’s Bluetooth gamepad and we were rather excited to finally see a high quality device like this that actually works with Android. In order to expand its user base, Gametel has added support for both iPhone and iPad using this device as well.
The latest rumor on the much anticipated device has come from iLounge’s Jeremy Horwitz. This isn’t as much of a real discovery – like the iPhone 5 having a quad-core A6 – but more along the lines of what someone “thinks” could happen. Horwitz believes that the next iPad will come equipped with better cameras, not much of a shocker there since every Apple device that follows its predecessor has a better camera.
How do you get people’s attention in a market flooded with “rugged” and “most durable” cases for devices? Sure, you could drive over it with a hummer, throw it off a building, chuck it down the hill in snow, but how about something a little well, out of this world?
Up until now there has been no viable way to jailbreak Apple’s A5 devices (iPhone 4S and the iPad 2) but if Pod2gis correct, this is all about to change.
Although there are many different stylus designs out there to choose from for the Apple iPad, we encourage you to check this one out. The jaja is the first ever pressure sensitive stylus for the iPad and it appears to be pretty impressive.
As of late, there has been no shortage of rumors regarding Apple products, particularly the iPad. Now it seems that yet another rumor has surfaced, this time courtesy of sources allegedly from Apple supply chain partners.
Sources at 9to5Mac quoting Focus Taiwan claim that Apple wants its iPad manufacturers and suppliers to scramble and streamline their production lines for the iPad 3 to meet a launch date of 24 February, 2012, Steven Jobs birthday anniversary.
