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!
