Great demo of new version of Google Search for iPad

Yesterday Google released a new version of Google Search for the iPad that's pretty remarkable. And showing how eager they are to be on every iPad, they've produced a great demo video. You can read more about the app on the Google Mobile Blog. The new version is more interactive, and the slide-in pane is really cool — just excellent design. The voice recognition isn't quite on the level of Siri, but it works quite well.

iPad to continue dominance in 2012

So, Amazon's new $200 tablet, the Kindle Fire, is out, and reviews are mixed, mostly saying that it's a great low-end machine but no comparison to the iPad. And consumers agree. A survey reported by AppleInsider found that of over 3,000 potential tablet buyers who participated, 65% said they were planning to buy an iPad, 22% the Amazon Kindle, and 4% the Samsung Galaxy Tab. None of the other tablets registered more than 1% in the poll.



HyperPhysics App Review

Sometimes you want to just kick back with a cool beverage of choice, and you know...? Do something crazy with your iPad!! Maybe something radical like: observe the conservation of angular momentum applied to a smooth body in motion as it turns ever more rapidly around it's center of mass. Huh, you say?!.. Ever see a skater speed up in a spin just by pulling in her arms? That's an application of exactly what I'm talking about, and you can learn a lot more about these interesting physics principles using the HyperPhysics app!



iPhone Life Weekly Weekend Giveaways! 11/18

Every weekend we will be raffling off tons of great apps and accessories for FREE. Here's how it works:



Logitech's ever expanding keyboard line includes an expanding keyboard!

image

Logitech has a ton of accessories for your PC, Mac, and tablets, and it just got bigger with Logitech - Fold-Up Bluetooth Keyboard for Apple® iPad® 2.  Speaking of getting bigger, the keyboard gets bigger, expanding to a full-size touch-typable keyboard.  It's a trick right out of a Transformers' movie and it doesn't get old.  I used it a recent TED conference and my iPad-toting colleagues were appreciative... and jealous.  I even brought it out at a Microsoft Windows Phone event, just for kicks!

 



Rumor: Assembly of new, higher resolution iPad to begin in January

image

DigiTimes is reporting that assembly of a new, higher-resolution iPad will begin in January. The specs include a thinner, lighter battery, a quad-core A6 processor, and a smaller dock connector. It's rumored that Apple was trying to include a retina display, which would have doubled the pixel density. But apparently there have been technical problems. So although a higher-resolution display is expected, it may not be a retina display.



The best iCade / iControlPad games Part I

image
I've always liked ­playing on my mobile devices, even back in the Pocket PC / Windows Mobile / Palm OS days. They revitalize me quite a lot, particularly after a hard, exhausting day.

Playing without physical controls (buttons), only using the touchscreen, is pretty hard. This includes a lot of game types, particularly ones where quick direction changes are needed and / or you can't make the smallest mistake and must be absolutely sure even the smallest movements on the directional pads (D-pad for short) is registered. In games like these, physical D-pad / button feedback is of extreme importance.
