Windows XP on an iPad? I declare!

image

 

What you're seeing in the picture to the right is lots of folks' worst nightmare: Windows XP on an iPad. The real thing and fully functional. How is this possible? With a VNC client (I use VNC Viewer). The iPad is not really running Windows XP, of course; it's just running a piece of software that lets you view, control and use Macs, Linux boxes and, yes, PCs. 



Cinema for iPad — free streaming movies

image

I haven't yet tried this new app, but it sounds like an interesting idea — sort of like subscribing to a movie channel via your cable service, or going to a movie at a cinema. That's because instead of being the usual Internet model of movies on demand, Cinema for iPad has a schedule and streams movies at particular times. You pay $2.99 for the app, but the movies are free. The schedule changes frequently. You tune in when there's a movie playing that you'd like to see, whether a matinee or late-night show.



Distracted by Spazzle!

I had no intention of reviewing games today, but I got distracted by this one: Spazzle. I downloaded the free version - got so engrossed that I went back and bought the pay version. I LOVE THIS GAME!

It's whack-a-mole on steroids! The music is upbeat, the graphics are fantastic, and the game play is just plain fun!



Britannica - It is concise

The definition of concise is: expressing or covering much in few words; brief in form but comprehensive in scope. 



Ivyskin's Smartcase goes the distance! Rugged protection plus extended battery!

image

Now I've seen it all.  I've been looking for a rugged iPad case that can withstand my occasional clumsiness, and give me peace of mind when I let my kids play with my iPad.  But I also wanted something that felt good in my hand, with a rubberized grip.  Not to be a dreamer, but an extended battery would be great, so I don't have to always plug in my iPad at night.  And a built-in stand would be nice.

Do you Whistle (free)?  I guess I'm still a bit tongue tied with my latest VoiP app for the iPad, yes you're hearing me right a VoiP phone for the iPad (and other devices too).

 The WhistlePhone Service is interesting for a number of reasons; 1) it designed an app for the iPad, 2) it utilizes an add you have to listen to before each call to make your voip call free in the US, or from anywhere else to the US.



Apple Announces iPhone OS 4.0

Major upgrade coming for your iPhone this summer

 On April 8, less than a week after shipping the iPad, Apple previewed the next generation OS for its mobile devices. The update includes seven major, or "tentpole," features and over 100 other minor enhancements, including multitasking and folders. The update will be fully supported on the iPhone 3GS and 3rd generation iPod touch. The iPhone 3G and second-generation iPod touch however, will support "many" but not all features of the new OS. First generation iPhones will not be supported. iPhone OS 4 will be available later this summer for the iPhone/iPod Touch and in the fall for the iPad.

The iPad at Work

Will workers bring their iPads to the office? Will companies deploy them?

iPad at WorkWhile businesses have traditionally made technology purchase decisions for their employees, the release of the iPhone accelerated the so-called "consumerization of IT"—the tendency of employees to bring their personal smartphones into the workplace and use them for business purposes. With the release of the iPad, Apple seems to be working its way up the spectrum of mobile form factors. It will be very interesting to see how business users and organizations respond to this new platform.

iPad Gaming: The Next Big Thing!

New games that take advantage of the iPad's enhanced features

At this year's Game Developers Conference (GDC) in March, much of the buzz was centered on the iPad. Everyone was eager to get in on what Apple executive Scott Forstall called, "a whole new Gold Rush for developers." However, these game developers were encountering a problem: Apple had not provided even the biggest third-party companies with early iPad devices to test their applications. Developers instead had to rely on computer emulation, without the security of knowing how their games would play on an actual iPad.
