Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on August 30th, 2010

The WePad may sound like a Nintendo version of the iPad, but it’s no toy. It’s selling like gangbusters in Germany, where it has outsold Apple’s iPad.

iPads finally shipping within 24 hours

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on August 29th, 2010

On Saturday Apple quietly shortened the shipping times for new iPads on the Apple Store to 24 hours. Every model now ships within a day after it was ordered. It’s not clear if Apple retail stock has caught up, but other international stores also show the reduced lead time.

This is the first time in the five months of iPad availability that Apple can expect to keep up with demand and supports the idea that Apple has had to step up production to guarantee a healthy supply. Apple reportedly sub-contracted Samsung to help make the 9.7-inch multi-touch displays after LG Display’s factories weren’t enough.

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on August 26th, 2010

Sharp’s President Mikio Katayama has said that their upcoming e-reader will be a rival for the Apple iPad. That’s quite a boast. Hopefully it will live up to the hype. This new device is being readied to hit the market before the year is over.

We know that this e-book reader will use a color LCD display with a new file format for e-books called XMDF. XMDF will use video and music along with basic text. It may even be 3D capable, since Sharp is behind the Nintendo 3DS display.

HBO hits the iPad and mobile devices in six months

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on August 17th, 2010

If you need a dose of True Blood on your iPad, you won’t have long to wait. In an interview with Bloomberg, HBO Co-President Eric Kessler made an off-hand comment that in six month’s time, HBO Go would be available “through all major cable systems, on Apple’s iPad, on mobile devices and elsewhere,”.

It would be free for those of you who already are signed up to HBO. Aside from that, the company still has a cold attitude toward Netflix. Having HBO go portable sounds good to us.

Here’s an easy way to share and view your own and your friends Facebook and Flickr photos using the iPad. It’s a new app called Flickpad, which is available in both a lite and a paid version. Basically the Flickpad iPad App pulls photos from your Flickr and Facebook contacts and displays them as if scattered on a table on your iPad.

It doesn’t replace Flickr, it just allows you to keep up with your friends photos that have been added or tagged that day. Pretty interesting app.

iPad kicks Asus in the Eees

Posted in ASUS by Shane McGlaun on August 17th, 2010

If any of you out there though that the iPad would fail, you were so wrong. The iPad is selling faster than Apple can build them and the demand is showing no signs of letting up.

Apple is building all the iPads it can and if it were not for screen shortages, it would build more. The sales success is a good thing for Apple, but not a good thing for other companies like Asus. Asus has announced that its Eee sales forecasts are being reduced to 1.4 million units for Q3.

Every party should measure the beer flow so that they don’t run out and have to make an unexpected beer run. Now, it’s easy, with the new KegMate iPad application developed by the team over at yelp.com

KegMate can monitor who is drinking from certain kegs via RFID tags, how much they have drunk and even allow them to rate the beer on screen. Sounds like fun, but people will likely be too drunk to operate it, or they will get beer all over your iPad.
