We know you're probably getting a little fed-up as of late, with words that start with a small "i" in front of them.  However, even with that realization, we have to steal just a little slice of your bandwidth, if you're an iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad owner or are in possession of anything that will install an Apple mobile app.  When you're on the road and can't get your fix of HH, don't fret.  It's a cold, lifeless world out there without your daily dose of Hot Hardware, we understand, but we're here looking out for your best interest as always.  Now, you don't have to walk around uninformed, left flat, without entertainment and miserably disconnected from all the pure, unadulterated...

Abilene Christian University may be one of the small universities in the vast state of Texas, but it is surely making a name for itself in the media market. Particularly the market that pays close attention to Apple.ACU made waves across the educational and technology markets back when it decided to hand out iPhone 3GS phones to incoming freshmen, and now it's the first major institution to commit to bringing its school paper to the iPad. Apple clearly designed the iPad to be used by newspapers, and we already know that big ones like the New York Times will be jumping onboard to bring their content to Apple's first tablet.But in our estimation, it will be the reaction of the smaller outlets and...

As you've no doubt heard by now, Apple launched a new mobile computing device and it's within a product category that is all-new territory for the traditionally tight-lipped company. It's a bit of an odd choice for a company that revels in innovation, and after today's announcement, we're left with more questions than answers on whether or not it can truly deliver in the way that Apple CEO, Steve Jobs thinks it can. The iPad simply isn't as revolutionary as the iPhone and iPod, and that alone is at least initially limiting the general perception of the product. For better or worse, Apple has worked itself into a corner where people simply expect each and every new product release to change that... Read more...
Those who may be in the midst of their Amazon.com stock after the introduction of the iPad, may want to pause and think for a second. While many forecast the Kindle's demise, more important than a Kindle sale for Amazon.com are sales of its e-books.After all, as with printers, it's all about the consumables. You may only sell one Kindle, but you could sell tens of e-books to one consumer. In response to the iPad's introduction, Amazon.com said the following:Customers can read and sync their Kindle books on the iPhone, iPod Touch, PCs, and soon BlackBerry, Mac, and iPad. Kindle is purpose-built for reading. Weighing in at less than 0.64 pounds, Kindle fits comfortably in one hand for hours, has... Read more...

Thanks to a loose-lipped CEO, we knew Apple had a tablet device on deck for today's announcement in California. We even spotted a rumored TV spot a few days back, which labeled the device as the "iPad." Turns out, that's exactly what Apple decided to name this.Apple has today entered an all new market, one that straddles the realms of smartphones and notebooks. It's the tablet PC, which is a market that swelled and died years and years ago. Apple is known for its innovation, though, and it apparently thinks it has the magic elixir necessary to create a tablet in a post-tablet world and still get people interested.The entire device looks like a giant iPod touch, really. It's 0.5" thin, weighs... Read more...
While many expect tomorrow's Apple event to result in CEO Steve Jobs unveiling an Apple table, we now have confirmation. Considering how much Apple values secrecy, you have to expect they are not pleased about this.While being interviewed on CNBC today, addressing his company's latest earnings, which showed its first boost in earnings in two years, Terry McGraw, chairman and CEO of McGraw-Hill said:"Yeah, Very exciting. Yes, they'll make their announcement tomorrow on this one. We have worked with Apple for quite a while. And the Tablet is going to be based on the iPhone operating system and so it will be transferable. So what you are going to be able to do now -- we have a consortium of e-books.... Read more...
Apple has a media event scheduled for this coming Wednesday. That much we know. Otherwise, it's all up to rumors, whispers and wild speculation. We have a pretty good idea that AT&T may lose its iPhone exclusivity, and many analysts are suggesting that a tablet/slate of some sort will make its official debut as well. Apple's upcoming iPad tablet?  Aspect ratio be damned... Now, there's a little more believability in that second assumption but a whole lot of intentional mystery behind it as well. A supposed "iPad" advertisement has just leaked out, and while no one will confirm whether it's real or fake, it definitely has the typical "Apple vibe" to it. Based on this video, the iPad looks...
