The Stabile Pro is one of my favorite stands on the market. The Stabile Pro stand is twice the weight of the iPad at 4 lbs. The extra weight provides the adequate needed balance to secure the stand. One of the greatest features of this stand is it’s built in the U.S.A from solid steel. It has a pivoting head for viewing in either landscape or portrait view. It has a slit cut in the back for cable positioning. The stand brackets that hold the iPad secure are covered by protective rubberized tips.

360 Panorama ($.99) http://occipital.com/360/app
Capturing panoramas are now easier than ever! Just open the app, tap the screen and pan your phone in any direction. Your panorama gets stitched together as you go. When you're done, you can instantly save your panorama or share via email, Twitter, or Facebook.
In real estate, we used to pay hundreds of dollars to have this done for virtual tours and we would have to wait days to get it back. Now it can be done and on a website before we leave the house.
Everyone is looking for the best GPS app and CoPilot Live may have just taken that title. It’s a very user-friendly app that not only has audio capabilities, but also provides additional features to make the experience safer. It really does become your copilot without having to look at your phone or GPS while driving.
Adonit has developed a new Bluetooth keyboard for the iPad called, Writer. They offer a model of Writer for both versions of the iPad. The Writer Bluetooth case is quite different from most others I have used in the past. It not only looks a bit different but feels differently as well. I think what makes it look a bit different is the fact the iPad simply snaps into the Bluetooth case along a bracket type hinge. It doesn't have its own back persay. The Writer has several on board keys such as play, rewind, fast forward, and more.

So things are just a little rocky at the moment, but I guess that's to be expected. And the issues aren't that serious. Yesterday Siri was down again for some users. Siri's interpretation of your commands and questions happens not on your iPhone 4S but on Apple's servers. If there's a problem on Apple's end, Siri becomes uncommunicative. CNET and TiPb were among the sites that reported the outages. Some users found that resetting their phone helped.
Every weekend we will be raffling off tons of great apps and accessories for FREE. Here's how it works:

I’m sure that a lot of people can agree with me when I say I would be lost without my Apple products, including my iPad. From doing interviews and writing blogs for racing to working on apps for my company ZaAPP, it’s mostly done on my iPad while I’m waiting to catch a plane or sitting at the racetrack.
I recently got a request to review the social netwoking app 'SUP!' and I've got to say, it's one of the nicer social calendar apps I've tried. It's got nice custom graphics and very easy navigation with five clear buttons on the bottom and then the on calendar buttons as well. The registration for this app was very quick and easy, took less than two minutes to get up and running. I loved the quick tutorial; it was only about 2 minutes at the most but gave me a good understanding of the app and how to use it without wasting my time describing every tiny detail of the app. Creating an event was nice and easy with quite a few built in event types along with the custom option.

DigiTimes continues to share rumors of new iPads coming in March of next year, and says that in order to meet demand, Apple will start stockpiling as many as 2 million units by the end of this year. Apparently, there are two designs in the works, code-named J1 and J2. Both have a higher resolution than the iPad 2, as well as different specs and sizes. Since things are still at an early stage, apparently Apple hasn't yet decided which model will be released. It likely depends on availablility of components, production costs, and market.

If you're an app developer, as I am, once you start to get a decent amount of sales, you start looking for a way to track those sales so you can do some analysis. For a long time, I tried various web services. They had a nice advantage as they automatically downloaded your sales reports and created charts, without your having to do anything. But if you have a lot of apps, as I do, web services can be expensive, as they typically charge per month and per app... even for free ones. So a friend told me about AppViz from IdeaSwarm, and I've been using it every day for a couple of years now.

If you’ve been an iPhone gamer for any decent length of time and managed to go without playing a game from Chillingo (or Clickgamer), I’m both impressed and a bit scared. For the rest of us, we know by now that they have a pretty good knack for choosing fun, light hearted puzzle / platform / physics / whatever style games, and Blobster is no exception. I’m not sure that there’s anything here that’s really new, but it’s all put together in a way that is both entertaining and fresh. As long as Chillingo keeps publishing games like this, you can expect me to be along for the ride.

Not too long ago, Zagg came out with the ZAGGkeys Solo. This is a bluetooth keyboard that works with many tablets, some smartphones, iPhones and iPod Touches. It works with both iOS and Android.

In one of my previous posts, I had mentioned that STM had just released their new bag called the Stash. This shoulder style bag is compact and designed to fit an iPad or most other 10" tablets. This comes in the colors black and berry.
The bag is made of microfiber and has soft padding in the device compartment. The strap is adjustable and removeable.
