Stabile Pro Coil iPad Stand: Review

image

The Stabile Pro Coil is a long, snakelike, flexible coil stand for the iPad.  The Stabile Pro Coil can be manipulated into any shape imaginable.  It’s great for the home, office, and even the automobile.  My favorite place to use the Stabile Pro Coil is the automobile. The Stabile Pro Coil makes viewing directions much easier on the iPad screen.  It’s extremely strong and flexible for holding the iPad into position.  The Stabile Pro Coil has a little brother called the NaJa King.  The Naja King can be used with the iPhone or iPod.  One of the best features of all the Stabile stands is their ability to be used with or without a case.

APPY Geek - Now available for iPad!

image

One of my personal all-time favorite news reader apps has finally made it to iPad, and I am a little late in getting the word out (sorry, APPY Geek). It is, in my opinion, a great (and free) news reader sporting a dock-like interface, a slick tag browser, and decent library of news sources! I use it when I can on my wife's TouchPad, and now (finally) can use it on my iPad regularly. You looking to stay updated on the latest tech news, then this is a pretty darn good way to do it, in my opinion!

Yesterday The Daily reported that Microsoft Office is coming to the iPad soon, even showing a photo of it running on an iPad. Then later in the day Microsoft denied it. Then today The Daily's Peter Ha stood by his story, saying that a Microsoft employee actually demoed a prototype for him.

I'm expecting Siri in the new iPad 3 — and eventually across Apple's product line — but even so, it's nice to hear rumors that it's coming. A Chinese site reports this and other details, as well as including a photo of the front glass panel of the iPad 3. You can read more on AppleInsider. Other rumored details include a 1080p camera with image stabilization.



iPad Helps Comedian Perform

It's nice to see Steve Jobs continues to touch lives after his passing. The comedian in the video below, referred to as LostVoiceGuy a.k.a LVG, performs by using speech applications on the iPad. He lost his voice at an early age. The video contains some bad language. It's still an awesome video. Check it out.

Music Color for iPhone and iPad

image

The iPhone and iPad have been extremely popular for a number of things since they came out but one thing which has been surprising by many is how many great educational uses there is for them.  One type of education app which many people might never know about is those which are designed for very young children.  The music color app is designed to not only help little kids learn their colors but also get a great appreciation for music.  The app is set up with large panels of different colors for little kids to choose and interact with in a simple way.



Everything iPad - Apps, Accessories, Reviews, Wallpapers etc | iPhone Life Magazine

What's bigger than an iPhone, smaller than a MacBook, and the most anticipated Apple product since the original iPhone? On January 27, at a special invitation only event at the San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Steve Jobs announced Apple's new "magical, revolutionary product" -- the iPad. Meant to fill the gap between the laptop and phone, Jobs said it was "way better" than either. Let's take a look at it.

Thin, lightweight, and powerful

The iPad shares many hardware features with the iPhone, including an accelerometer, an orientation sensor to switch from portrait to landscape mode, solid-state memory, and the same 30-pin doc connector. Connectivity is also virtually the same, with wireless 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1 EDR included on all models.

iPad runs iPhone apps!

The iPad will run a version of iPhone OS, and the new device can run virtually any app developed for the iPhone or iPod touch. Aps developed for the iPhone can run on the iPad in native resolution but is large enough to touch type on.

The larger screen not only makes familiar iPhone apps like Calendar, Mail, and Safari look stunning, it also provides screen real estate for more complex elements in the UI. For example, Calendar display a split-sreen view that describes the day's appointments on the left and shows you a color map of used time slots on the right. The split-screen view in Contacts displays you contacts list on the left and the full information for the contact you've selected on the right.

An ebook reader and more

Although not build into the iPad, Apple will offer a free app called iBooks, which will allow you to download and read books from it's new virtual bookstore. The new iBooks store will be accessed from and as easy to use as iTunes.

The ultimate media device?

The iPad is not the world's first tablet PC or the first eBook reader. Toshiba, Lenovo, Acer, and others sell Windows-based tablets, and Amazon has had considerable success with it's Kindle. But Apple thinks the iPad will reinvent the category by offering a vastly superior multi-touch interface an easy access to a wide-variety of apps and media via iTunes. Aple hopes to make the iPad the ultimate media device by leveraging it's existing assets which include over 100 million paying iTunes customers, established relationships with music and video content providers, and over 100,000 iPhone OS app developers.
