The iPad mini went on sale early this morning in the Apple store online, and within 30 minutes the white model had sold out. As of this writing, the black model is still available to pre-order, but I would't be surprised if that changes before long. So, if you want to be first in the virtual line to get your new iPad mini, best hurry and make your way over to the Apple store.
I've written about Nomad's artistic brushes before but their newest line, the Flex series, adds a nice twist. As with all of their styluses, they use capacitive hairlike synthetic threads as a paintbrush would, but thanks to their conductivity, you can use painting apps, like ArtRage, with greater control. With the Flex line, you can add a second tip and flip the stylus around and have a thicker or thinner brush tip, depending on your needs.
I first got to preview the MirrorCase at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, and again at the New York CES Preview a few months ago, but now it's shipping and I've had a chance to use it firsthand.
The MirrorCase lets you lie your iPhone almost flat and point the camera at your object of interest, and record videos or take photographs.
Two weeks ago, Jeff Niles asked me whether my app development company would be interested in helping him propose to his now-fiancée (congratulations, Jeff and Diana!) as the two of them flew over the Statue of Liberty in a helicopter. No, we didn’t assist with the actual flying part—that feature is sadly absent from iOS 6. What we did contribute: A Push notification in our New York Travel Guide app, triggered by proximity to Liberty Island (and a few other tricks my developers had up their sleeves).
Hurrah! At long last, the iPad mini is officially here! I feel like I've been waiting for this iDevice for literally years now, as I've been following the rumors about it's existence since whisperings of iPad mini prototypes first started floating around back in 2010. And now that it's here, the time is right to start looking at protective cases for the new mini. I would say, now more than ever, it is important to have a good case for your iPad. Why? Because, although the larger iPad is relatively portable and many people do indeed tote it around with them, the iPad mini is ULTRA-portable and I expect that it will be carried around much more than it's larger cousin. Knowing that the mini will see more action and adventure than any iPad previously ever has, and therefore be exposed to greater risky situations and opportunities for inadvertent damage, let's take the opportunity to check out some of the first cases to become available for the latest member of the beloved iPad family!
To call today's event, "the iPad mini event" is, in a sense, grossly inaccurate, since after all, we were introduced to a wide and varied line of truly impressive and noteworthy products. And yet, I suspect today's event is destined to go down in history first and foremost, as the day the world was introduced to the iPad mini.
Today, Apple introduced to us, the new iPad mini, the revamped 4th Generation iPad, the Mac mini, the new iMac and the new 13” Retina display MacBook. And that’s just talking about the hardware! Apple also unveiled an amazing update to iBooks as well as the iBook Author app. Quite the bountiful event!
What great icing on the cake after the iPhone and iPod event of last month. First Apple introduced their latest iteration of the world’s most popular smartphone which has gone on to sell in record numbers, breaking sales records set by its predecessor. Now, Apple has entreated us to an equally impressive and expansive line up of new and equally innovative and revolutionary products. Apple gave a great show today with a plethora of stunning new devices, while also demostrating their great flair for the theatrical and suspenseful that we have all come to love and perhaps, expect.
