Stereolizer turns your iPad into a Stereo

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on March 15th, 2011

Here is a great way to turn your iPad into a retro music player. Stereolizer is a new iPad app that allows you to give your iPad some 1980′s style and it provides some handy features too. The Stereolizer iPad app includes access to more than 10,000 streaming web radio stations and lets you arrange your favorite stations into 3 presets of 10 radios each.

While listening to the radio, you can record audio to virtual tapes direct from the radio or audio messages via the built in mic. Just like a retro stereo. After you’ve recorded a collection you can then eject the virtual tape to view and classify, remove or rename them using the iPad keyboard. Pretty cool.

Time Warner Cable TV app now available on the iPad

Posted in iPad by Reuben Drake on March 15th, 2011

iPad users that subscribe to Time Warner’s cable TV service have some good news today. Time Warner cable has just released the Time Warner Cable TV app for the iPad. That means that iPad users can now watch programs and movies from the cable service anywhere in their home as long as they have a WiFi connection.

Shows will be broadcast in HD, so you can enjoy Discovery, MSNBC, SyFy and other content in great quality even though you aren’t watching on the big screen. Right now, the app only works over WiFi and only 30 channels are available for live streaming, but that’s not a bad start. You must be Time Warner Cable subscriber with an iPad tablet running iOS 4.2 and higher. Future versions of the app might even include streaming without using WiFi, and the ability to set up a DVR to record shows.

iPad to be used in airplane cockpits

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on March 7th, 2011

The iPad truly is being used everywhere. Now the Federal Aviation Administration has granted early approval to use them in airplane cockpits, as major commercial airline companies including Delta want to do away with paper maps.

It’s a great idea, but maybe they could have one or two paper maps still. Just in case. The FAA has also started to grant approval for “electronic flight bags,” alternatively known as computers for aviation use in the last decade. Let’s hope the pilots don’t get too distracted playing Angry Birds or watching movies.

Apple offering refunds to recent iPad buyers

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on March 3rd, 2011

If you bought an iPad recently and were bummed out because the new one just came out, we have some good news for you. Apple has announced that users who purchased the first generation iPad within the last 2 weeks can get a refund. They can either request a $100 refund, or they can return their device to Apple for a full refund since the iPad 2 will be offered at the same prices of the current iPad.

Think of it as a trade in for the new device. This 2 week window means that those of you who purchased the iPad earlier than February 16 would not be eligible for the offer though. Hopefully you purchased yours at the right time.

Posted in kindle by Conner Flynn on February 21st, 2011


Amazon took another opportunity to hit the iPad where it hurts, namely it’s readability, in a new TV commercial for the Kindle. The 30-second ad points to the Apple tablet’s glossy LCD as a weakness, whihe e-paper on the Kindle reader has “no glare” to interfere with reading and can even be read in bright sunlight.

The ad also paints the Kindle as the savior of books, saying that “the book lives on:” the Kindle Store has over 800,000 titles. And they also focus on battery life is a quick focus, as the Kindle will last on a charge for a month.

Sanus VMA301 iPad Mount Adapter mounts your iPad to the wall

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on February 17th, 2011

The iPad is supposed to be portable. Even so, sometimes you want to mount it somewhere so it can act as a monitor. Sanus can help. They have unveiled a new wall mount adapter for the iPad. The adapter doesn’t include the actual wall mount, but it does come with the adapter that you need in order to mount the iPad to any wall mount that uses a 100 x 100 VESA mount plate.

The adapter features a virtual Axis 3D faceplate that allows the iPad to be moved from portrait to landscape modes. The faceplate only works with the Sanus MF202, MF209, MF215, MC1A and MD115 wall mounts however.

Did Walmart sell a Georgia man a fake iPad?

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on February 13th, 2011

This story smells a bit fishy, but a Georgia man claims that a local Walmart sold him a fake iPad, and now the store is refusing to give him a refund.

The iPad shown in the video below is obviously one of those fake display models Walmart uses to trick thieves, but how did Ken Lamal end up with this in his box instead of a new authentic iPad? That’s the question. This story just doesn’t sound right though. In the video, the reporter takes it to an Apple tech to confirm that it isn’t the real thing. I mean, come on. You should know better. The tech says that it’s probably a “brick in the box” return, meaning that a customer bought an iPad, then substituted the display model for the real thing and returned it for a refund.

iPad 3 coming this fall?

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

We are still waiting for the iPad 2 to be made official, but there are already rumors about an iPad 3 that could be out as early as this fall. Sure, I guess it could happen. The rumor goes like this. Apple will unveil the iPad 2, which will be a modest update to the original iPad. It’ll get a front-facing camera, a faster processor, more RAM as well as support for both AT&T and Verizon’s networks. It won’t get a new retina display.

Then, during the fall/holiday season, Apple will unveil a bigger upgrade to the iPad, one with the higher-resolution display. The thinking is that this will allow Apple to adjust the yearly upgrade window for the iPad to be right in the middle of the holiday shopping season. That does make sense.

Remember the HyperDrive? It’ an external hard drive that can be connected to your Apple iPad using Apple’s camera connection kit. Well, HyperDrive has now launched a new version, this time with a nicer price. It starts at $99.

You do have to add in your own hard drive. That’s why it doesn’t cost more. The HyperDrive hard drive for the Apple iPad can hold up to 1TB of storage and the built in internal battery is only good for about 40GBs of transfer/read from the HyperDrive after that you’ll need to recharge it or connect it to a 5v power supply.
