Amazon's Kindle, which was the company's first piece of hardware, turned the reading world upside-down. Even now, the Kindle is the e-reader of choice, and it's the first device that comes to mind when you're thinking of e-paper, e-ink, and e-readers in general. But the iPad made everyone think twice about the technology; was an e-ink screen... Read more...
Apple has done it again: The company has created a product that people want and in the process, the company has boosted sales of an entire market segment. Although tablet PCs have been on the market for years, many consumers haven't paid attention to this market segment until Apple announced the iPad. Now, research firm IDC is claiming the...

It doesn't matter that Apple's iPad can't do Flash, doesn't come with USB ports, won't accept SD cards, has no built-in camera, and puts up a pitiful effort at multitasking (at least until iPhone OS 4). None of these shortcomings were enough to dissuade Diane Campbell, who lives on a fixed income and had been saving... Read more...
Apple's iPad is the talk of the tech world. Regardless of your feelings on the matter, and whether or not you think leaving Flash support out was a smart move, Steve Jobs and Company have managed to re-capture the attention of the public in a way that hasn't happened since the days of the original iPhone. Everyone is... Read more...
Sony posted their first real loss in over a decade last year, and they're still losing money. Why? Because of decisions like this. While many of the smaller, more nimble companies such as Acer, Asus and MSI are already making plans to follow Apple's lead and produce a tablet PC this year, Sony is still mulling the...

PayPal started the credit card revolution, and Craigslist empowered regular people with the ability to clean out the garages without forking over fees to eBay. Now, the next movement is about to begin, with Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey beginning to ship out hundreds of free credit card dongles that plug into the headphone jack of an iPhone,...

We said in our initial iPad review that the tablet was almost certain to grow in popularity over time, as more and more developers had more and more time to create unique applications to take advantage of the new screen size and 1GHz A4 processor. One obvious application for a slate such as this is a home... Read more...
We were a little surprised to initially hear this news, but should we be? Look at the mobile realm. Apple introduced the iPhone, and the iPhone OS crushed every other mobile OS on the market. A while later, Google introduced Android, and now Android is closing in on Apple's growth rate according to some statistics. Google and Apple have been... Read more...
Beginning May 28, Apple will begin offering its iPad to nine more countries, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland, and the UK. And effective immediately, anxious would-be iPad customers residing in each of those countries can put their pre-order in through Apple's website, the company from Cupertino... Read more...
It's true: the most powerful man in the Western World doesn't know how to operate an iPod, an iPad, an Xbox or a PlayStation. At a graduation commencement ceremony today at Hampton University in Virginia, U.S. President Barack Obama stated the following: "With iPods and iPads and Xboxes and PlayStations, -- none of which I know how to work...

A ton of accessories have already emerged for Apple's iPad. Much like the iDevices that came before it, there's no doubt that more iPad accessories than you could possibly count will soon be out on the market. One particular product that's coming this Fall looks significantly more interesting than the typical cases, sleeves and stands. It's... Read more...
Apple's iPod touch and iPad haven't really been out long enough to determine their long-term place in handheld gaming. Sony's PSP and Nintendo's DS lineup are still the go-to handhelds when you think of gaming on-the-go, but there's no doubt that Apple is having at least a small impact on things. The App Store is...

Burn us at the stake (please don't) or take away our PC geek cred membership card (never mind, we'd rather be burned at the stake), but we have no problem admitting we like Apple's iPad. It's fun, it's functional, and it makes an awesome bedside or couch companion, lack of Flash support be damned. But one thing we're not so keen on is typing... Read more...
This time last year, netbook sales were up nearly 900% from the same quarter a year earlier. No one really expected that growth rate to continue, but no one really expected netbook sales to fall off of a cliff, either. But while we're on the subject, no one really expected Tablet PCs to explode in the way they have, with Apple's iPad already... Read more...
A few weeks after Apple announced its revised programming rules for iPhad devices, Adobe dropped the bombshell that it was abandoning Apple's platform. Up until late April, Adobe had tirelessly pledged Flash support for the iPhone, but certain changes to the developer license made it too risky for the company to... Read more...
Asus' CEO credited Apple with helping to jump-start the Tablet PC revolution in an interview recently, and at first, we figured he may be giving the enemy a bit too much credit. Now, we get the impression that other CEOs may start lining up to mirror Jerry Shen's thoughts. Apple already made known (a few times) that... Read more...
Apple's iPad 3G went on sale over the weekend, quickly selling out in many Apple stores across the nation. According to initial data, Apple sold about 300,000 iPad 3G models in the past couple of days, including over a month of presales. In case you're wondering, Apple also sold about 300,000 of the less expensive... Read more...
Asus had confirmed in the past that they would also play their cards in the Tablet PC game, acknowledging that they'd issue a Tegra 2-based Eee Pad at some point in the future to rival Apple's iPad and the spate of other rival machines sure to hit the market during 2010. But few details beyond the general plans to... Read more...
Apple's iPad has many uses, and for anyone looking to "wow" someone right away, all you need to do is pull up "Maps." Zooming, pinching, and sliding across the globe on the iPad is a really marvelous experience, but there's just one main problem: no true iPad turn-by-turn navigation apps exist. Well, that was the...

Scosche is a solid company. They make loads of accessories, many of which enhance Apple's line of iDevices. But this? This is taking things into a whole 'nother universe, and we're not quite sure whether to laugh, cry, or simply bow at the greatness of the world's first mass produced iPad Car Kit.Teased today in a...
