Yahoo iPad app screenshots

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on March 28th, 2010

Some screenshots of Yahoo’s iPad app have surfaced, and it looks way better than their website and uses the iPad’s screen space well. In just a few days the iPad will start shipping, so it’s time to start thinking about apps.

This one will be on your list just because it looks so nice. They did a great job with the UI. I hope others are paying attention. Not at all what you would expect from Yahoo.

New iPad pre-orders will not ship until April 12

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on March 28th, 2010

The date for iPad pre-orders has been shifted back to April 12th, according to Apple’s website. People who have pre-ordered before today can still expect to get their iPads on April 3rd, so no worries there.

But those pre-ordering today & after should not expect the pre-orders to arrive before April 12th. The change suggests that Apple has completely sold out of the original online amount of WiFi iPads. 3G iPad models still have a shipping date of “late April.”

iPad Camera Connection Kit now in the Apple Store

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on March 27th, 2010

If you want to import your photos onto your iPad then you’ll be happy to know that Apple has finally put the iPad Camera Connection Kit up on the Apple Store. You’ll be able to stare at pics of little Billy blowing out his Birthday candles or little Sally petting a goat at the farm. Whatever floats your goat, I mean boat.

The camera kit is only $30, but you’ll have to wait a bit as it ships in late April. But after that, you have a nice fancy digital photo frame.

iPad App Store screenshots

You’ve been dying to know what the App Store is like on the iPad, right? Well, here ya go. App tracking and analytics site AppAnnie discovered these shots while “searching for clues” on the device and is sharing them with the world.

One thing that you will notice is that Apple will be using HD to mark applications that have been tweaked in a special iPad version, or have had their resolution upped. You might also notice some apps that aren’t available on the iPhone right now, like the $49.99 OmniGraffle.

WSJ on iPad for $17.99 a month

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on March 25th, 2010

The Wall Street Journal is running a piece on itself, quoting “a person familiar with the matter” who says that The WSJ plans to charge subscribers $17.99 per month for iPad subscriptions. That’s not a bad price, since the print version of the WSJ costs about $29 per month. But is it in line with what people want to pay for the content digitally?

Magazines are apparently ready to offer weekly or monthly editions from the start, not annual subscriptions. According to sources, the April issue of Esquire magazine will arrive in downloadable format without advertisements for only $2.99, which is $2 less than the newsstand price, and will include five music videos to show off the device’s multimedia. Then there’s a full iPad issue of Men’s Health that matches the $4.99 regular price.

Swarovski iPad, an affordable alternative to the diamond model

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on March 24th, 2010

You want the diamond encrusted iPad right? You want some bling in your life. But you just can’t afford $20,000. Not in this economy. Well, maybe you have $2,250 for a Swarovski iPad?

Bargain bling if you will. CrystalRoc has outfitted the $500 iPad in Swarovski crystals to con you and your rich friends. There are 6000 crystals and you can purchase a 32 GB version directly from CrystalRoc by the end of April.

Kindle apps for Tablet Computers

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on March 22nd, 2010

Looks like Apple and Amazon can share some common ground with eBooks. Amazon has outed its Kindle Apps for Tablet Computers, which also supports Apple’s iPad. It functions just like the iPhone Kindle app, with Whispersync technology and it will let you access all of the books you have purchased for the Kindle.

What this means for the future of Amazon’s Kindle eBook reader, we have no idea, but if we had to guess, we’d say that Amazon is cutting their losses and staying in the market however they can.

Apple offering discounted iPad 10-packs to educational institutions

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on March 21st, 2010

Apple has now started promoting its 10-pack iPad bundles for educational institutions. Insert packaged maxi-pad jokes here. When purchased in a pack, the price of the iPad goes down by $20 per iPad, or $40 per iPad if purchased with AppleCare.

Purchasing iPads in bundles like this also helps the environment since packaging is reduced by eliminating separate retail boxing for each device. You should not have to buy pads one at a time. Ask any woman. In each package you get ten iPads and the USB-to-Dock connector cables, power adapters, and one set of documentation.

iLuv ISP150 iPad Speaker

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on March 17th, 2010

iLuv is offering the ISP150 Bar Speaker, which will turn your iPad into a music box. It will work with the iPad, notebook and iPod. The integrated speakers can be powered by either USB or four AAA batteries.

Some other features include a 3.5mm audio jack, USB connectivity, a power switch and volume control. It will cost you $34.99. Judging by the image it doesn’t look all that portable. It doesn’t seem like something you want to be carrying with your iPad.

Diamond iPad for $19,999

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on March 15th, 2010

Hey there Richie Rich. You might want to hold off on that iPad purchase. I know, you were hoping to look douchey and get it as soon as everyone else, but just hold up a sec. Here’s one that will make you look even more douchey.

The usual downsides apply here. No flash support, non-replaceable battery, the very real certainty that you will be mugged and die, just to name a few. It’s covered with 11.43 carats of diamonds, graded G/H in color, VS2/SI1 in clarity etc.

iPad Pre-Order numbers

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on March 13th, 2010

Apple iPad PreSale starting todayAccording to Forbes, Apple was selling pre-orders for the iPad at a rate of about 25,000 an hour yesterday morning. The numbers aren’t exact at this point and very unscientific. It’s based on differences between the order numbers assigned to early buyers. Not official Apple numbers.

But if it is accurate, here’s how it compares to some initial figures during the debut of the iPhone and iPhone 3G S. There were no pre-orders for the first iPhone, but roughly 200,000 phones were sold in stores on the first day that the phone was available. With the iPhone 3GS there were reportedly “hundreds of thousands” of pre-orders.

Apple iPad PreSale starting todayApple told us pre-orders for the iPad would be starting today at about 5:30 AM PST, 8:30 AM for those of you standing in line on the east coast. Currently, as usual when Apple has a new product being added, the Apple Store is done with a note that they will “be back soon”, no doubt with a new landing page featuring pre-orders for the Apple iPad.

Pre-orders are going to be available for only the Wi-Fi version, which would then arrive on April 3rd. If you’re set on the 3G model you’ll have to wait until later on in April. The 16GB version of the WiFi only model will be going for $499, while the 32GB version will be $699.

Quirky Cloak Apple iPad case

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on March 10th, 2010

As the Apple iPad launch date gets closer, more accessories are becoming available. Mostly frames with kickstands. This latest accessory is the oddly named Quirky Cloak. It’s designed to look sleek and protect your iPad at the same time. It’s made from non-slip rubber and has a durable plastic hinge on the edges.

The iPad loads into the top of the case and once inside is held firmly in place by a friction grip. The Quirky Cloak is designed so that the iPad can sit on a surface in landscape mode, or stand up with a kick stand in portrait mode.

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on March 9th, 2010

The iPad is almost here and we’ve only scratched the surface of accessories that will be available for the device. Belkin is ready for it with some accessories of their own, like the Max Sleeve. You can pre-order yours now for $39.99.

The Max Sleeve sports a special pleated design that can be expanded, so that it will carry your iPad and a bunch of other accessories. When it is just the iPad it will stay slim, but when you need to store other stuff it will do the job with no problems.

iTable offers multitouch for 32 fingers

Posted in Computers by Shane McGlaun on March 8th, 2010

We have seen all sorts of cool gear turn up at CeBIT in Germany ranging from PC hardware to new notebooks and netbooks. One of my favorite devices to debut at the show was the iTable. The thing is like a giant iPad that you can sit your drinks on.

The iTable has a 42-inch HD resolution screen and a full PC inside its 1.5-inch thick top. The screen support input from 32 fingers at once. It can also get input from a stylus, pen, bottle, or cup as well.
