So how come the other media guys have a new iPad in their hands and I don't? Apple? I envy those guys, and in surveying the reviews, my impression is that they're all pretty ecstatic. What else is new? Of course, they rave about the screen. TechCrunch describes it best. They say it's like going for an eye test when you're getting glasses. After reading the first few lines, everything is blurry. Then you put on glasses, and voila, every thing is much clearer.
You are no longer bound by saved files on your computer. Because technology has changed; there are now apps available that allow you to access all of your stored files right from your phone or tablet. This is why iExplorer HD was created. It has given people the power to access many different attachments from an alternate location as long as you are connected with the right servers.
Are you bemoaning your enthusiastic but incredibly mediocre photography skills? Do you wish that there was a more accessible way for you to achieve artistic greatness? Are you looking for new and interesting ways to utilize the unique strengths and abilities of the iPad? All of these hopes and dreams can come to fruition with Colortive’s newest venture, Touchlook HD for iPad2.
Apple officially announced today that the new iPad will go on sale Friday beginning at 8 am. No doubt some customers are already lining up. All indications are that there will again be huge demand for this new gadget. Apple said that the iPads will be available on a first-come, first serve basis. You can read more on CNET.
Unfortunately, Apple doesn't allow SD card expansion and even the camera connection kit is limited in utility. If you haven't decided which model of the new iPad to buy, or if you wish the iPad or or iPhone you already own had more storage, you might want to consider the Wi-Drive from Kingston
Contacts Duster Pro is one of those must have apps for anyone who uses their device to keep track of the information about their friends and family. As just about anyone knows who has had their phone for any length of time it is very simple to let all your contacts get out of date and unorganized because people today are constantly moving, changing jobs and even getting new phone numbers. This app will help you organize everything to make them easy to find and use any time you want.
I have been using a new iPad case from x-doria.com called the Widge
. It's a protective hard foam case in the shape of a wedge. It looks a bit like an oversized doorstop, but the shape gives you two different angles for viewing and typing, but it also provides a couple of ways to grip the Widge.
If you're like me, you ordered the new iPad as soon as Apple's servers allowed, and you are waiting patiently (or perhaps impatiently) for it to arrive. Now is the time to think about protection. In fact, I sold my old iPad at SellYourMac.com
and got full price because it was in such good shape. I keep my iPads and iPhones in cases pretty much full time and they look brand new.
Now keep in mind, the new iPad is slightly thicker and heavier than the iPad 2, and has a bigger opening for the camera, so there's a chance your old case might not work.
The Snugg iPad 2 case is very affordable, sleek, and thin. It offers front and rear protection for the ipad. It doesn’t add any extra weight or bulkiness to the device. The model I have been using is the ultra-thin version. It is exactly as the name implies, Ultra-Thin. The Snugg Ultra-Thin iPad case works much better than the smart cover made by Apple. The Ultra-thin Snugg iPad cases gives an elegant, professional look and feel. It makes a great case for the job or everyday use. Either way the case will do its job, which is protecting the ipad. It does the job without any adding any bulkiness or weight. The case can be purchased on Amazon for around $35. If you buy the smart cover you will pay alm

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.
