Sonos Controller app for the iPad

The whole Sonos media playing system is pretty impressive already, but with the larger display afforded by the iPad, you’ll have a much easier time navigating through your increasingly large music library. Check it out. You can sort by artist, album, and so on, as well as seen the album art off to the side.

AT&T slams hacker group responsible for “malicious” attack

att-cracked

The group replied last week saying it exposed the security flaw to inform and protect consumers, and refused to make public their discoveries until AT&T repaired the issue. In response to the FBI’s claim that they’ve begun investigating the incident, the hacker organization said simply, “We did not try to hack your iPads, your iPads are safer now because of us”. They also noted that all findings have been destroyed by both the hackers and Gawker Media’s Valleywag website who received the data from them.

When Apple first launched the iPad in the United States, it was relatively unknown how it would perform in the open market. Being the first device of its kind, Apple took a gamble by yet again giving us technology that we didn’t know we needed, until of course we shelled out some coin to get it. The iPad is a rock star, it sold 1 million units in the first month, beating the companies very own iPhone smartphone.

There’s no reason why anybody should be awake at 5 a.m., but for Apple lovers there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be awake.

Today marks the launch of Apple’s iPad in Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland, the U.K. and Canada. The tablet computer arrived in the United States at the start of April and so for international Apple fans that had to wait another two months, May 28 couldn’t come any faster.

Rogers announces two Apple iPad data plans

iPad prices for Rogers Wireless in Canada

Our neighbors to the south have had access to the Apple iPad for some time already, but it’s finally coming to Canada and Rogers Wireless looks like it’s the only one announcing a data plan for the big touchscreen device.

Rogers has officially announced its iPad data plans and they’re actually not that bad. On the lower end of the scale if the $15/month plan and that gets you 250MB of use. Heavier users can bump up to the $35/month plan for 5GB of data. Both plans come with unlimited access to Rogers WiFi Hot Spots.

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

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.

Two tough cases were revealed today for the Apple iPad. They are from none other than OtterBox, the well known rugged case designer. OtterBox has given us two options, the Communter and Defender, depending on your daily mission.

When the Apple iPad was first unveiled to the world, one of the most common questions that people had about the device was “why isn’t there Flash support?” In like manner, you’ll find a lack of Flash support on the iPhone and iPod touch devices, and Apple isn’t going to change their position any time soon.

If Apple’s actions didn’t speak loudly enough for you, Steve Jobs has issued an open letter wherein he basically says Flash is broken and wants it no where near any mobile device. The open letter is a full 1500 words in length on Apple’s history with Adobe, their shortcomings, and where they presently stand. You can read it below.

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?
