So now we have a date. According to the iMore website, its sources are saying that the iPad 3 will be introduced on March 7. This is in sync with the earlier report by a usually reliable website that the event would be the first week in March. And March 7 is a Wednesday — the day that Apple has often used to launch a new product. Plus, there was the recent report of a major retailer discounting the iPad 2, which is usually in indication of clearing out stock in anticipation of a new model.

Excitement continues to build over the upcoming iPad 3. And yet another indication of the imminent arrival of the iPad 3 is the price drop on the iPad 2 offered by Meijer, a regional retail chain. Their in-store price of the low-end iPad with WiFi of $429 is seen as an effort to clear out inventory in advance of the arrival of a new model. Meijer is based in Michigan, with stores in some surrounding states.



Valentine Wishes - Enjoy this Valentines Day with Valentine Wishes

This Valentine’s Day themed game is actually four cute games in one.  While entirely unoriginal, this game is still fun.  It appears that the creators of this app just put new graphics on top of other games which have been around for a while.  That being said, the game is still fairly fun and since it's free it is well worth getting.  The games are rather simple to play and don't require much time to learn but can still be challenging enough to enjoy for even experienced game players.

The blogs are buzzing today with the rumor that Apple will announce the iPad 3 at an event in San Francisco the first week of March. The source is All Things D, which has an excellent reputation for accuracy. Plus, the iPad 2 was announced in early March a year ago, so the timing would be about right. All Things D says that those in the know say that the new iPad will have many of the rumored features: a faster processor, speedier graphics, and a retina display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536.

Following the release of the tweetbot iphone version 2.0 today was the ipad version of Tweetbot.  Twitter has been a popular social media client for some time.   Some users may prefer Facebook while others would choose Twitter.  This difference is what makes the world a colorful place.  Tweetbot has been my favorite Twitter client since it first released.   The thing I like best about Tweetbot is the notification sounds.  It has awesome sound effects for sending and receiving tweets.



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.
