As far as Android tablets have come, it looks like the iPad is still the king of the bigger touchscreen castle, accounting for some 81% of the market.
The iPad is mostly perceived as just a toy. It’s something you use to play Angry Birds and update your Facebook status. However, there appears to be a very special place for it in the classroom, particularly when it comes to children with special needs.
This is a port of the Dalvik virtual machine from Android and it effectively lets you run Android applications on devices that aren’t running Android. This includes the Apple iPad, apparently.
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.
