I'm really looking forward to next week's announcement, though I'm guessing that the rampant rumors have already revealed a lot of the details. 9To5Mac reported yesterday that they've learned that the pricing will be the same, and that there will again be a choice between 16, 32, and 64 GB models. This is counter to a rumor that had circulating saying there would be a slight increase in price.
Oh My Nuts is a game app which is similar in many ways to angry birds where you have to launch something across the screen attempting to hit an object. In this game you are shooting a squirrel (out of the mouth of a pig) at a series of three stars with an acorn at the landing point. For each level you need to shoot the squirrel at the correct angle to get all three stars and land in the proper place to collect the nut.
The iHome iDM11 is one powerful cube. It offers great sound quality at any volume level. It connects very simple by using Bluetooth. It can be used with any device, which has Bluetooth capability. I have connected it to my iPhone 4S, ipad 2, ipod 4th gen, and Macbook Pro, and iMac 27 inch. All these devices connected without any problems and added great sound quality to all of them.
IPEVO has developed one the more elegant folio style Bluetooth keyboards. The Bluetooth folio style case is called Typi. The Typi connects very easily through Bluetooth 2.0. Simply slide the ipad in the Typi folio case and connect by typing the four digit code. You will now be able to leave the heavy laptop behind on business trips or vacation. The ipad can easily be transformed into a workhorse in conjunction with the Typi Bluetooth case.
The Scosche BassDock offers pounding bass and superb sound for the ipad. It will accommodate either the ipad 1 or 2. The adapter needed to secure the ipad is included with the BassDock. We all know the sound quality of the ipad is a bit lacking to say the least. However, equip the ipad with the BassDock and rock the entire office. The Bassdock has two 1.6’’ speakers and a single 3-inch woofer for bass. The stand can be tilted to prefer viewing angle.
ClarityOne earbuds deliver the best sound I have ever heard from earbuds. The highs, mids, and low mixture are perfect due to the 3D mixing processor they have inside them. It definitely makes a major difference in the sound quality. These are fairly new to the market but expect big things. Needless to say, I do expect we will be “hearing” great things from the ClarityOne team. The also include a PureSound Processor which eliminates virtually all distortion.

I've never worked on a Mac. I don't even own an iPhone. But one night four months ago, I borrowed an iPad from our Technology Department to see what all the fuss was about. As a baseball coach and sponsor of our school's broadcasting club, I thought the iPad might be useful for video analysis and editing. And it is. What I never expected was to find so many practical functions for my classroom. The iPad has changed the way I teach high school English, and there’s a pretty good chance it can change the way you teach, too.

It will really be interesting to see how this plays out. Yesterday the New York Post reported that Apple is forging ahead with plans to offer a streaming TV service by Christmas — but that the content providers aren't too happy with the terms Apple is offering. One source is quoted as saying about Apple that their attitude is, “we decide the price, we decide what content.” And a media executive complained, "They want everything for nothing."

The DigiTimes website today is full of hot rumors. As usual, the sources for the news are Apple's suppliers, and, as usual, it's worth noting that this website's track record for accuracy has been uneven. DigiTimes reported that Apple will announce an 8GB iPad 2 next week that will be priced to compete on the lower end of the market. This would, of course, be in addition to an iPad 3 that's expected.

Jelly Oasis has graced the iTunes App Store with a tower defense game which boasts the extremely unremarkable title of Elf Defense. In fact, the title is so low-key that after playing the game, I almost wonder if they’re trying to hide their light under a bushel, because nothing else about this little gem is unremarkable and now on sale!
