Everyone is getting super excited about the third generation iPad. We might not be able to call it the iPad 3, but there is little doubting that this is fast becoming the most anticipated iPad release to date. With that huge Retina Display forming the centerpiece of what is sure to be a popular device, Apple has already seen unprecedented demand for the tablet.

With some of us sat eagerly anticipating a knock at the door on Friday morning, some people will be huddled outside an Apple Store in the hope that they are far enough down the line to be able to pick up a new iPad on release day. We knew Apple’s own stores would be popular destinations for those who chose not to order online, but the only real question was about what time those stores would be opening. Continue reading »

We’re live from Apple’s event in San Francisco where Tim Cook has just announced additional language capabilities for Siri. That disembodied helper, ushered in by the iPhone 4S, is now getting a localized Japanese equivalent as part of the iOS 5.1 update rolling out today and slated to hit Japan over the next few weeks. Looks like those prior leaks were right on the money. Now we’ll just have to wait and see if that camera slider makes the cut. Continue reading »

You’ve heard all the rumors, and now Apple has finally confirmed the details of its next iPad launch event. It will take place on Wednesday, March 7th at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco. The company is keeping things suitably vague beyond that, of course, promising only that it has “something you really have to see. And touch.” You can be sure we’ll be there live to find out exactly what that might be.

Looking at the image in the invite, it appears that Apple is already giving us a sneak peak at the iPad 3’s Retina Display. Continue reading »

Taiwanese Economic News reports that Apple has placed an order with Simplo Technology Co. and Dynapack International Technology Corp. for a thinner and lighter battery for the iPad 3.

If this is indeed true then it would mean than iPad 3 could be thinner and lighter than iPad 2 or as MacRumors points out could be making space for a thicker high-resolution retina display.

Taiwanese Economic news also reports that the new thinner and lighter battery for iPad 3 will be 30% more expensive. The battery is also supposed to offer longer service life and increased safety than the previous generation battery packs used in iPad 2. Continue reading »

Aug 232011
 

It may look like nothing more than a glorified chip clip, but that dongle at the bottom of this guy’s iPad is actually ERPLY’s new credit card reader — the latest addition to a growing field of NFC and mobile payment devices designed for small and large businesses. Once attached to an iPad’s charging port, the peripheral will send a user’s encrypted credit card information to ERPLY’s point-of-sale and inventory management software, allowing customers to purchase products on the store room floor and giving retailers the ability to monitor transactions and stock flows in real time. Available for $50 (with a transaction fee of 1.9 percent), the reader is also equipped to handle both NFC and traditional card payments and, after processing a purchase, will automatically send a receipt to consumers via text or e-mail. At the moment, it’s only available for the iPad, though iPhone users should be able to get their own version within the next three months.

Andrew Liu – jailbreak app developer who unofficially ported Swype – the most popular alternative keyboard for Android devices to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch has released a new beta version of his jailbreak app on Cydia.

Yesterday, Swype Inc CEO Mike McSherry had said that the jailbreak app didn’t appear to be a port, as some of the key features such as the blue tracer line are missing.

He was right, Andrew Liu has revealed that he has written his own code to bring Swype like experience to the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, rather than porting Swype to iOS as the code for the official version is not open source. Liu plans to rename the jailbreak app so that users don’t get confused with Swype.

It’s taken much, much longer than we ever expected but three new Photoshop companion apps are now available for the iPad, and by all accounts they’re as good as we’d hoped.

According to Gizmodo’s Jesus Diaz, all three new apps are worth picking up especially when you see the prices involved.

Adobe Eazel is a $5 app that works as a stand-alone paint application and plugs straight into the desktop version of Photoshop. Images are transferred and can have their resolution changed as you so wish.
Adobe Color Lava costs $3 and is expected to be used by creatives who need to make color themes while out and about.
Adobe Nav is just $2 and is basically a remote for Photoshop tools.

All apps are available now via the iOS App Store.
