ClamCase for iPad adds keyboard, keeps Steve Jobs up all night

ClamCase for Apple iPad adds chiclet keyboard

What I would call the most de-evolutionary accessory for the Apple iPad, is the ClamCase. Sure, it matches the shiny glossy iPad display making you have to clean fingerprints twice as long, it even appears to keep it relatively thin, but doesn’t turning your iPad in to a mini-notebook computer by adding a keyboard undermine it’s entire magical existence?

Jailbroken iPad plays Super Mario World and Mario Kart

mariokart-ipad.200

What could be the best game to hit the magical Apple tablet, Super Mario World for Super NES, is made available by jailbreaking the iPad and then running the Cydia app. Although unconfirmed, the use of the WiiMote on the iPad does seem do-able, considering it is Bluetooth and all. The second app SNES4iPhone shows Super Mario Kart on the iPad, the downside to this one is that you have to use the touchscreen controller.

World of Warcraft streamed to the iPad

World of Warcraft playing on the iPad through Gaikai

The Apple iPad has become quite the popular little device. It’s been used to read ebooks, surf the web, and even play a few games. However, those little iPad games can still be quite shallow when compared to the fuller games you find on consoles and PC.

That could change. What if I told you that you could play World of Warcraft on your Apple iPad? No way, right? Well, there is a way and it may not be exactly what you think it is.

Review: Case Mate WalkAbout leather iPad case

casemate-leather.ipad

We wrapped our iPad in Case Mate’s most elegant and finely crafted sleeve, the WalkAbout. If Case Mate would make a sofa out of this, I would probably not ever get up and gain 200 pounds. Think of it as Ferrari’s bucket seat for your iPad. Magnets hold the straps down, magnets you say? Don’t worry, I haven’t lost any data yet. Besides, I’m sure Case Mate put them far away from our memory chips.

There’s no access to your USB connector when all tucked away unless you keep the flap up.

Apple iPad review: The future is in your hands

Apple’s mysterious new “magical” device has created a big stir across the world. What are we supposed to do with this thing? Is it going to replace my desktop? Probably not. How about my laptop or netbook? Still no. So what is it good for? Well, that’s the magic of it. It does many things, but it’s not here to step on anyone’s toes.

The name iPad is strangely clever. It probably took Apple an entire 5 minutes to come up with the name. It’s clearly not a notebook computer, and we already have the iBook. How about that other relative, the notepad. Ideas went around, and voila – Apple’s latest thing is the iPad. Names aside, what the heck is this thing good for anyways? What am I supposed to do with this iPad?

iPad DJ Rana Sobhany mixes beats, reveals her apps

djipad

Is there anything the iPad can’t do? It won’t be replacing your MacBook any time soon, but if Rana Sobhany is any indication, it could be replacing your much more expensive DJ equipment. What she has done is hooked up two iPads to a basic $100 DJ mixer and a $100 USB sound box, reproducing a full DJ setup.

From what we can gather, Rana really is the first iPad DJ. Each of the two iPad devices have been loaded with several DJ-related applications and then they are connected to a cheap $100 DJ mixer so that she do things like cross-fade and hit kill switches.
