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.

Time Inc. and Apple to offer free iPad downloads to print magazine subscribers

Posted in Apple by Reuben Drake on May 2nd, 2011

Good news for magazine readers. Time Inc. has made a deal with Apple to allow print magazine subscribers to access the company’s iPad editions for free. Starting this week, those who subscribe to print versions of Sports Illustrated, Fortune, and Time will be able to download the iPad versions at no cost, directly within the magazines’ apps, as it should be.

iPad users still won’t be able to purchase exclusively digital subscriptions to Time Inc.’s publications. Time wants to incorporate digital subscriptions to its iPad model, but negotiations have hit some snags, mostly due to how Apple shares subscriber data. Publishers claim to need that data to apply the TV Everywhere model to magazines, but Apple says that the subscriber information should only be shared on an opt-in basis. It doesn’t seem like they will agree anytime soon.

Sometimes you wish that you could easily mount your iPad on something other than your desk. It’s convenient for watching movies, looking at a recipe, or whatever. Well, here’s something that will make it easier to mount your iPhone anywhere.

The Mount Me (that’s what she said!) Freedom. Despite the odd name, it is very useful. It comes with an articulating stand that lets you adjust the angle of the iPad and it can be wall mounted. Your iPad sits in a special case that has a quick-release so you can pop it out of the mount anytime you like. It also comes with four suction cups for mounting to smooth surfaces. Pretty cool.

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on April 12th, 2011

A recent survey by Google-owned AdMob showed that many consumers are spending more time on their tablets and less time sitting uncomfortably at their PCs, using smartphones, watching TV, listening to the radio, and of course reading those outdated paper books. The are neglecting many things in favor of tablet use. AdMob expects tablet customers to reach 165 million devices over the next two years.

1,430 tablet owners participated in the survey, among these 77% said they spend less time with their personal computers after buying a tablet, 43% said they use their tablets more than their personal computers, and 28% say that they now use a tablet as their primary computer. 68% said they spent at least 1 hour each day with the device, 84% use it mainly for playing games, while 78% search for information. It’s very clear that the tablet is King. But we already knew that. PCs are on the way out, but not completely gone yet.

Wasabi Wooden cases for iPad

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on March 31st, 2011

Want to spruce up your now outdated old iPad? The best way to do that is to upgrade to the iPad 2, but if you don’t want to do that, then here’s a way to give it an external makeover. The Wasabi collection features five ukiyo-e (woodblock print) designs by the famous 19th century Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai.

My only concern with these is that they seem like they would be heavy. They’re made from African mahogany and will cost you $272 each. Yikes. Heavy and expensive. But they are pretty.

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on March 16th, 2011

There are many cases for the iPad, but none can suspend them in mid-air over your crib bed. Well, some designers have come up with the Hanfree, a stand that will let you use your iPad even if your hands are full.

It keeps the iPad suspended in mid-air and allows you to use it for many different purposes. It isn’t just for reading or watching in bed, you can read instructions while cooking for instance. The Hanfree works with both the original iPad and the iPad 2. The creators are still looking for funds through Kickstarter. If you pre-order the stand you can get it for just $50, but when it goes on sale, the price will be $80.
