There are a lot of external battery packs for the iPhone, fewer still for the power hungry iPad, and even fewer for laptops because of the non-standard plugs. So I was very excited to see the PowerSlate from Nexiom at CE Week in New York City last month.
Not only does this one device offer over 13,000mAh of power (almost ten times that of iPhone battery cases) it can provide power for an iPad, and even most laptops!
In elementary school, children seem to have the hardest time with multiplication and division, because it is totally new to them. Space Mathematics: Multiplication and Division gives children a fun and easy way to learn these new math techniques without all of the confusion that they can get with a pencil on paper. After all, the best way to teach children new things is to find a way that they can relate to and enjoy, which you can find by using Space Mathematics. It’s a creative way to help kids learn the things they’ll need for the rest of their lives.
Today I decided to play a game of Karate Champ on my new iPad before beginning my studying for the day. When loading the iPhone app I was informed that an iPad version, Karate Champ XL (revolutionaryconcepts.net), was available for only $4.99.
Alongside crossword puzzles, the game that is a family favorite in any local newspaper is Sudoku. The ultimate passer of extra time, Sudoku has long been a way for people to keep their minds stimulated. Now, with SudokuPDQ, you can take Sudoku anywhere with you, as long as you have your mobile device on hand. However, the developers of this game have taken Sudoku to another level, allowing users to do things with the game that can’t be found in any old newspaper. Although its graphics aren’t particularly flashy, SudokuPDQ captures all that it needs to in regard to the game of Sudoku.
For several years, I've been showing movies on the garage for the neighborhood kids. When the iPad came out, with the optional VGA cable, it enhanced the portability of my setup. I no longer needed to lug a laptop to connect to my projector. But Apple, while they usually do things right, didn't do a great job with their VGA connector dongle. It uses the 30 pin connector but doesn't provide a way to power an iOS device, so you're limited to the battery life of the iPad or iPhone. Apple also offers composite, component, and HDMI connectors, which fixed this, but most projectors are wired for VGA not HDMI and Apple's VGA dongle is easy to keep in your bag.
Before you drop $300 on a fancy celebrity endorsed set of headphones, you might be better served trying the iWOW-U from SRS Labs and your existing headphones. That's what I did, with a $20 pair of Sony headphones and the sound quality was significantly better. The iWOW-U is a 3.5mm extension cord but with a twist. It includes a powered amplifier that enhances the sound quality and does a great job of stereo separation... I was skeptical, but the improvement was immediately noticeable and I am a tough cookie to please.
Dockem has a smart set of wall mounts for assorted tablets and smartphones that address some of the deficiencies found in competing mounts. For starters, they accommodate just about any size device, and even with a case or smart cover in the case of the iPad.
By splitting the mount into two parts. They can accommodate devices of different width, in portrait or landscape mode (though you will have to decide which orientation before you finalize affixing your mounts.)
Bunny Run is a free application that allows you to play as a bunny and avoid getting smashed by vehicles. Whether you’re crossing the road or crossing train tracks, you’ll want to be careful and avoid being dinner for scavengers. Bunny Run is an arcade romp that’s sure to keep you entertained when you have some extra downtime.
Bunny Run is a run and dodge type application that promises to take the run and dodge type applications to a whole new level. It can be related to the old school game Frogger. You were constantly in a rush and trying to not get squished by traffic. Well unlike Frogger, Bunny Run has unique dynamics, amazing graphics and endless gameplay to keep you occupied.
DEAD TRIGGER, the newest game release from MADFINGER games (makers of the other App Store smash hit, SHADOWGUN) is one of the best First Person Shooters available right now. This game is freakishly scary, and has been a very hard game for me to put down, partly due to its killer graphics, and partly due to its excellent gameplay. The post-apocalyptic environment you find yourself in is desolate with lethal danger around every corner. Abandoned buildings and deserted alleyways will become your tomb, if you are lucky. If not so lucky, well then I reckon you end up like them.

Now, the iPad 2 has been around for several months and there have been several companies that have based themselves around the needs of this tablet. However, it is still a competitive world in the market of accessories. Anyone could be easily overwhelmed by all the available stands, apps, cases or any of the other niche markets. We would definitely recommend doing some research and checking out some iPad reviews to get an idea of whats available and how you are going to use your device. The market has several options to choose from today.
Such examples as IK Multimedia, have been on a roll lately, with a slew of hardware and software products tailored for amateur and prosumer musicians. Whether its stands and clips for iPhones and iPads or multitrack recording and sampling software for the iOS platform, IK has been expanding their catalog at a prodigious rate. Their latest releases include a MIDI hardware connector for the iOS platform, a sound sampler app and a iPad version of their popular VocaLive software. These iPad reviews will take a closer look at each.
