Kim Komando, whose radio and TV broadcasts about computers are heard and seen nationally, has put together a video review of the iPad in two 5-minute segments.



1st Week with the iPad

image
I’ve had my iPad for one week now, so here’s what I spent my time doing:
  1. When I was home or had access to the Internet, I checked my email, sent text messages with Ping!, updated my Facebook page (love using Fun Box to add graphics) and kept track of my Weightwatcher points.
     
  2. Surprisingly, I didn’t read one book. Just didn’t have time!


Notes to Store v. Pages

When comparing Notes to Store with Pages on the iPad, Notes to Store is a viable alternative for some users.



Color & Draw for the iPad

Tipitap Apps just released their Color & Draw app for the iPad. Now, there is lots more room to work. Even I managed to color a page!

Amazing App Solar Walk allows you to explore the planets in detail!

 Just when I start to get bored with my iPod touch, a new app comes along that makes it like new again. The app in this case is Solar Walk from VITO. I have reviewed the amazing Star Walk previously here (a celestial viewing app), but was wondering when they would get round to adding 3-D planet exploration to the mix. There's a great (and free) PC app out there that does this called Celestia, and Google Earth also has some pretty awesome planet/star-gazing features.



Paints vs Adobe Ideas

I’m reviewing two apps for the iPod here because they are so close in terms of what they do they make for a good side by side comparison.

GizMag's iPad Accessories Round-up

Yesterday, GizMag's Jeff Salton published a terrific iPad accessory round-up: 

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past week, you might have heard that Apple has released its iPad. But what’s an iPad without accessories and, you’ve guessed it, they’ve already started hitting the shops to make the most of the hype surrounding the iPad's release. So far, there’s a nice keyboard dock, a camera connection kit, conventional docks, power adapters and chargers, and roughly as many different styles of carry bags and cases as there were units sold on the first day. We’ll give you a look at a few must-haves



The iPad's Wi-Fi Woes

Early adopters often encounter technical issues with their gadgets and it seems that Apple's iPad is no different as many sites and blogs have been documenting users complaining the iPad's 'widespread' wifi problems (remember the iPhone's wifi issues?), and even on Apple's own forums, owners are raising the issue (here and here).



Use your iPhone 3GS as a camera for your iPad

This is pretty cool. Gizmodo has a short article and video showing you how you can use your iPhone 3GS as a camera for your iPad. You put the Camera-A app ($0.99) on your iPad and the Camera-B app (free) on your iPhone. Then, via a Bluetooth connection, anything that your iPhone camera points at appears on your iPad screen. There's a button on the bottom of the iPad screen that you can touch to take a photo.
