Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on August 1st, 2011

Despite the fact that touchscreen tablets are supposed to be free of unnecessary accessories and other gadgets, the DUO will gladly turn your iPad into an interactive board game. Just set it on top of the iPad or iPad 2 and it will work with a game called Yoomi.

The DUO comes with tokens, so at the end of the game there is a winner and a loser. It retails for $14.99 on Amazon and is also available at Toys ‘R’ Us, and Walmart. I guess this is where board games are headed, instead of coming in a large box.

They will be issuing the 1 1/2-pound iPad instead of the typical 25 pounds of paper flight manuals to all pilots, and make it mandatory for them to carry it with them. The process should be complete by mid-June. This comes after the airline did about 100 tests last spring and winter.

Apple patent reveals unused iPad design with two USB slots

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on May 10th, 2011

During an earnings conference call last year, Steve Jobs hinted that Apple had tested several designs for the iPad during its development process. One of these possible designs may have surfaced in a patent application recently approved by the USPTO and now we get to see what might have been.

This patent shows off a Wi-Fi+3G iPad with an extra USB slot for landscape connectivity. The auxiliary USB slot would let you place the iPad in a dedicated landscape dock and dock it in portrait mode while syncing using both slots. Apple holds a patent for the design, but we will likely never see this in an upcoming iPad model. Still, it always nice to see how things might have been.

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on April 20th, 2011

As we all know by now, you can’t keep Apple products down. They assimilate society like the Borg and spread across the globe, just not in large cube-ships. So it is no surprise that Apple will launch the iPad 2 in 13 more countries next week.

We aren’t sure which countries these are, but so far this month Apple has launched the device in places like Singapore, Hong Kong and South Korea. There’s just no stopping the iPad 2. The company’s international push started on March 25th.

Kindergartners getting iPads 2s?

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on April 11th, 2011

Do you know many 5 year olds who have an iPad? Whatever you answered, there are soon to be more small people sporting Apple’s tablet. School officials in Maine’s Auburn Schools Committee have voted unanimously to provide all kindergartners with a brand new iPad 2 next year. They will repeat this process for each new incoming class as well.

That’s gonna be expensive, but they feel it is worth it. It will cost the school system about $200,000 next year, including Apple’s $25 discount from the tablet’s regular retail price. No wonder this school is already looking for a 5 percent budget increase.

Apple confirms glitch with Verizon iPad 2

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on April 10th, 2011

Remember when iPhone owners complained about AT&T’s network and could not wait for the day they could use their Apple devices on Verizon’s network? It wasn’t so long ago. Well, we have iDevices on Verizon now and guess what? It isn’t all it was cracked up to be. The grass always seems greener on the other side.

Verizon iPad 2 users are having reboot problems. Apple calls the number of users with problems “small”, but they have acknowledged the problem after message boards went crazy this week with customers complaining they are having difficultly accessing Verizion Wireless’s 3G data network.

Verizon 3G iPad 2 owners report reboot problem

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on April 8th, 2011

Looks like Verizon-based Apple gadgets have a recurring reboot problem. Owners of Verizon’s native iPad 2 with both Wi-Fi and 3G (in 16, 32 and 64GB memory configurations) are complaining that they have to reboot their devices if they want to connect to 3G after previously switching that feature off.

Wi-Fi works just fine apparently, but 3G connections can take several minutes or just never happen. It doesn’t seem like all Verizon iPad 2 users are having this problem, but the complaints from those who are affected are very similar. It just goes to show that Verizon has it’s own set of problems with iDevices, much like At&t
