New iPods, smaller iPad and iPhone 5 in early 2011?

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on August 4th, 2010

Word on the street is that there will be a revised set of Apple devices coming soon (as if that’s a surprise), specifically an iPod shuffle with a touchscreen display, a 7″ iPad for early next year, and a fifth generation iPhone as early as next January.

We would guess that the 7″ iPad is the focus, since it would make the device all the more appealing in a smaller form factor. Time will tell what the items will be, but at least we know that there are always more Apple products falling from the tree.

Apple iOS 4 security breach gives complete access to your iPhone

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on August 3rd, 2010

Apple fanboys have long gloated about the “fact” that Apple users are safe and secure compared to PC users. It’s utter nonsense of course and here’s further proof. Owners of the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad need to be careful. Visiting a web page and loading a simple PDF file might actually set off a security bug that affects all iOS 4-powered devices.

All it requires is for the user to visit a web address using Safari, and the site will automatically load a simple PDF document that holds a font which hides a special program. When the IOS 4-powered device you are using displays the PDF file, the font will begin the stack overflow condition that allows embedded code in the font to gain full control of your device.

US in top 6 for data plan costs on iPad

Posted in iPad by Shane McGlaun on August 3rd, 2010

I think that we all know AT&T and the other major carriers in the US charge us way more money than they really need to. They can cry about how much data smartphone users consume all day, but the fact is we pay much more for the data we use than other countries.

Wired put together a nice little chart comparing the price of downloading a gigabyte of data around the world. The US came in at number six on the list with a price of $12.50 per gigabyte. The most expensive place was France with a cost of $25.47 per gigabyte.

iPad knockoff runs Android, has a Camera, costs just $129

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on July 26th, 2010

This is one fake iPad that sure is tempting. It runs Android for one thing and is similarly styled to the iPad. It sports a 7″ touchscreen LCD with a 800×480 resolution. Under the hood it’s running on 2GB NAND Flash, and it can be expanded via SDHC TF cards to 16GB.

There’s also wifi, a 0.3 megapixel camera, 2 USB ports, and it even comes with a dongle that adds an ethernet jack and two USB ports.

Does the iPad make Kindle owners feel ashamed of their device?

Posted in kindle by Conner Flynn on July 26th, 2010

When a better gadget comes along and you are stuck with the old and less flashy version, do you feel ashamed? Richard Stephenson over at Folio recently wrote about how magazine publishers are getting their content onto the iPad, and shared an interesting anecdote about how the shiny, sexy iPad has made some Kindle owners feel ashamed of their “relic.”

I can see that. Feeling frustrated at least. You want the sexy model, but there you are stuck with this old has-been. The iPad is a sleek, full-color touchscreen device where e-reading as just one of its abilities. But to really be ashamed of your Kindle? It’s just a device.

iMac iPad Stand

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on July 26th, 2010

Mac fans will want to get their hands on one of these stands for $50. What’s $50 after everything else you’ve spent on Apple gear? Besides, this solid aluminum and polycarbonate stand mimics the iMac.

It even has the hole for cords and supports both portrait and landscape configurations, along with three angles of tilt each. It looks solid, but I wonder if it actually is. It would need to weigh enough to really keep your iPad in place.

LG can’t meet demand for iPhone and iPad screens from Apple

Posted in Apple by Shane McGlaun on July 23rd, 2010

I think that anyone who has tried to buy a new Apple product like the iPad or iPhone on launch day and the days and weeks thereafter knows that shortages are common. The main reason for shortages of Apple products like these is that Apple can’t get enough screens.

LG Display builds the screens for many of the Apple products including the iPad and iPhone. LG has stated that it will not be able to meet the demand that Apple has for screens.

NYC restaurant replaces Wine List with an iPad

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on July 22nd, 2010

Everybody is using the iPad in so many unique ways, and now businesses are doing the same. for instance, if you are dining in NYC, then check this out. South Gate restaurant is the first New York City restaurant to launch custom designed iPad wine tablets.

That’s right, the iPad is now being offered as a way for customers to navigate South Gate’s extensive wine list of over 650 bottles. Their new iPad “wine tablet” gives customers detailed information about the major wine regions and varietals, and it also automatically updates the wine list as labels sell out, so the inventory is always correct.

iHome iA100ZE iPad alarm dock

Posted in iHome by Conner Flynn on July 19th, 2010

iHome is trying hard to get noticed in an over-saturated market. But putting an iPad onto a fairly standard FM radio / alarm clock / dock just seems odd. However, if you like the idea, this dock seems quite capable.

It sports iHome+Sleep app integration, and Bluetooth. We wish we had more info, but we have no idea when it ships, or for how much. So there you have it. The first official iPad docking alarm clock. Who’s buying one?

The iPad’s sales pace has slowed down recently, but this should get things going again. No info on local pricing yet. “Many” more countries are promised before the end of the year, so the iPad should dominate the world in no time.

Do the Kindle and iPad slow down your reading?

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on July 6th, 2010

According to a survey, when you compare the reading speed of a paper book with the Apple iPad and Amazon Kindle 2, those devices will slow you down by as much as 10.7%.

The participants took an average of 17 minutes and 20 seconds to read each story, but were found to read 6.2% slower than printed paper when using an iPad and 10.7% slower on the Kindle. The participants apparently complained about the iPad’s weight and the Kindle’s weak contrast.
