Review: Cyber Acoustics IC-1000 iPad Case / Cover

image

 

I have been using the Cyber Acoustics IC-1000 iPad Case and I can say that I am impressed with it. This case may be ideal for a person who especially likes the Apple case style but wants added features. There are a few similarities between the two but it pretty much stops there. Cyber Acoustics took over and added their own spin on it.



The real magic of Harry Potter

The real "trick" that JK Rowling was able to perform was to print money.  The books, movies, merchandise, and theme park have all taken a good chunk of my income.  But I am okay with that.  At least I'm supporting a literary endeavor as my oldest daughter reads as fast as Ms. Rowling can write them, if not faster.

HootSuite is now my new best friend when it comes to Twitter applications. The interface is clean and easy to understand and I can manage all my social networking sites in one app. I have been using HootSuite (free) on my iPod Touch and online for some time but couldn't take using it on my iPad in the iPhone mode......but no more. They just came out with an iPad rewrite that is glorious.



A modular approach to iPad case design

image

There's a new case company in town, and they go by the name modulR.  They way they spell and capitalize their name isn't the only thing they're doing that's innovative.  The modulR case is really a system or platform which you customize to suit your needs.  The first thing you do is pop it into a silicon protective shell, similar to other cases.  But the back of the modulR case has four 'nubs' or buttons.  You can attach an assortment of accessories using those buttons to turn your case into a desktop stand, a wall mount, or even a shoulder strap case.

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.
