Fling puts a joystick on your iPad

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on January 4th, 2011

Touchscreen panels are great, but sometimes you miss the old joystick. For those folks, Ten One Designs has come up with the Fling, a tactile game controller accessory for the iPad. Just stick it on your iPad using suction cups and you now have an iPad with a joystick. Hopefully it is comfortable.

And since it’s transparent, it shouldn’t be too distracting on the iPad’s display. It’s made of conductive material so that the iPad’s capacitive display will recognize the input. It will cost you just $25.

Apple to order 65 million iPad screens in 2011?

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on December 29th, 2010

Sales of Apple’s iPad device will certainly grow in 2011 according to a report from DigiTimes. So it will need more screens. LG Display could receive orders for 35 million iPad panels from Apple in 2011, with Samsung and Chimei Innolux (CMI), who are scheduled to join Apple’s iPad supply chain in the first quarter of 2011, each possibly receiving orders for as many as 15 million units.

Apple’s 9.7 inch screen is making it difficult for competitors to match and the iPad’s screen size will likely lower component pricing in a way that only benefits Apple. This forces competitors to design and build 5 and 7 inch screens that don’t benefit from the scale of Apple’s high volume sales.

Gresso, makers of ultra-exclusive and expensive versions of popular consumer electronics, has now unveiled its latest product. Apple’s iPad, with 200-year-old African Blackwood as its case and an 18K gold Apple logo. Sadly, we don’t have any other details about the Gresso iPad, like what model has been selected.

We do know that it will be expensive. So expensive that they refuse to talk about it. Price will likely be revealed when the exclusive iPad goes on sale on New Year’s Eve. I’m pretty sure I can’t afford it.

Capitol Hill to permit iPads and other devices

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on December 26th, 2010

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill will soon be permitted to use iPads, iPhones and Blackberry devices on the House floor according to a recent report. Current rules ban the use of these devices, though incoming House speaker John A. Boehmer, the Republican Member for Ohio, is working on plans to relax these measures.

Members would still be banned from using the devices for matters that are unrelated to House matters, so they won’t be allowed to shop on Ebay or play games, but permitting the use of technology should help them be greener and help members quickly refer to legislation and receive important communiqués. So it could make things more efficient.

Apple’s next-gen iPad to get iPod touch-like back, wide-range speaker?

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2010

Take this one with the usual grains of salt, but according to Chinese sources the next iPad will have a 3-mm reduction in bezel width, the same 9.7-inch display size, and will have a flattening of the back allowing it to rest better on a desktop. It all sounds very plausible, right?

There’s also a “wide-range speaker” covered with “metal mesh”. The overall unit is said to measure 239 x 186 mm compared to the current iPad’s 242.8 x 189.7 mm footprint. Word is that the new iPads will begin shipping from factories in January.
