    What makes an iPad the iPad? Have you ever asked yourself this question? How can it be that a full decade of tablet computers was outsold by the first-generation iPad in just 10 months? How could it also be that two years of Android tablets haven't been able to defeat its lead? The answer to these questions is quite complicated. Each user was driven to the iPad for different reasons. Some bought it for its price back in 2010, when given a choice between a netbook that was just as cheap and a Tablet PC that was three times more expensive. Others simply because the ads did a great job in ...

    Whether you like Apple's own mapping offering on iOS 6 or you hate it there is no doubt at this moment that there is a perception of inferiority when compared to the old Google Maps on previous iterations of iOS. Google executives didn't explicitly confirm nor deny plans for a native iOS 6 Maps application but commented that, even if there will be such an app, Apple would have to approve it anyways. The images above and below seem to be snapped following the instructions in "Mr. Blurrycam's Guide to Photography" to the letter. They're allegedly snapped off of a very early alpha version of ...

    As I read the recent news of Apple, once again, beating their own sales record with the iPhone 5 on opening weekend, I couldn't help but remember my first impression of the iPhone 5 announcement. The device wasn't as remarkable as many of us expected it to be, but it was hard to turn my head away from the fact that it was available for pre-order in two days, and it would arrive in my doorstep just ten days later. The same thing happened to most of us with Google's launch of the Nexus 7. Neither of us had even held the device, but it was available for pre-order that same day, and shipping ...

    iOS 6 Maps was "the most beautiful, powerful mapping service ever", that is when you only looked at it on paper; once you started to actually use the offering it quickly became obvious that the service didn't deliver, by far in some regions, the experience advertised (and expected). Tim Cook officially apologized for falling short on “delivering the best experience possible" to customers with iOS 6 Maps; Apple went as far as to recommend competing solutions until its own offering became better (competitive). After the acknowledgement the description of Maps has also been changed on ...

    iOS6 will bring a lot of new features (despite the fact that many are expecting a brand new user interface), at least from what Apple have shown and told us. Of course, there might be some more exciting stuff being held from us in order to show off with the occasion of the iPhone event. However, Apple introduced a nice little feature in the Mail app, as spotted by BGR. If you conversation view (thread) is getting too long, you have to pull in order to expand the collapsed email and it will display more. In order to visualize this, check out the image above. It's pretty much similar to ...

    Despite the fact that the numbers are looking really good, Apple's financial results for the second quarter of 2012 fall short of some expectations mainly because of speed bumps in the European economy as well as slightly worse iPhone sales. The fruit company managed to sell 26 million iPhones and 17 million iPads in Q2. However, iPhone sales are lower than expected and, according to the company, rumors of the next iPhone are hurting smartphone sales. The same thing happened last year with the iPhone 4 where many future owners refrained from purchasing one on the eve of the iPhone 4S ...

    Those running the third beta of iOS 6 noticed that Apple will make it easier to update applications and install free ones by removing an extra step necessary in the current iteration of the platform. Passwords will no longer be required for installation of free applications. The user will also no longer be required to enter their iTunes password when updating an application already installed, regardless if it is free or purchased/commercial. Currently the system is asking you for authentication but in iOS 6, whenever tapping a free product in the AppStore in order to install it, the button ...

    Those who chose Google+ over other offerings for their main social networking solution that are owners of an Apple tablet didn't have a dedicated Google+ client up until now but Mountain View finally released one, as promised at Google I/O. Aside from the good looks, the Google+ application for the iPad brings some tablet-only functionality, like the ability to pinch and expand posts in your stream to add your comments, use two fingers to drag a post from your stream to easily re-share it and start a Hangout from your iPad and stream it to your TV using AirPlay. Make sure to follow the ...

    There's no denying that the definition of what a smartphone is has shifted quite a few times in less than a decade. At first it was a phone with PIM functionality, later a PDA that had phone functionality, later a phone that was smart enough to handle anything developers could throw at it, and as of a few months ago, it's all about a phone that talks to you. I know many of you started reading this thinking that Voice Control is the big thing now, but as we've been going through the different alternatives in the market lately, it's clear that the technology is not there yet. Our first ...

    There are quite a lot of people who like to combine the best of both worlds and using Gmail on your iOS-powered device, let it be iPhone or iPad, is just one example. However, the Gmail app for iOS is lacking functionality compared to the Android flavor but there's an update available in the App Store that tries to close the gap. Probably the most important addition is Notification Center support with options for banners, alerts and lock screen notifications. You no longer have to open the application to check for e-mails, you can finally be notified if you have one right on your lock ...

    We're back with another episode of After the Buzz, where we take another look at mobile devices after the shine wears off and after we've had ample time to live with the device past the honeymoon period. This time, we're assessing the new iPad, the tablet that still has the most market share (by far) in the tablet market. Questions we seek to answer include: does the Retina display markedly improve the experience? How has battery life been? Is it worth going for the LTE version? Does the extra weight and thickness negatively impact the experience? How about the app situation: are most ...

    When it comes to digital media, renting has as many advantages as does purchased media. For example, if you rent music, books or movies, you don't have to worry about a variable cost. You can consume as much as you can eat, for a fixed cost, that's easier to budget than the variable cost of owning. You also don't have to worry about your purchased music, books or movies not being supported in the future as products evolve, since you don't own it anyways. There's definitely a lot of wisdom behind the whole concept of subscription services. On the other hand, when it comes to purchasing, the ...

    There's a lot to celebrate about iOS 6. Brandon's recent editorial highlights the top 5 features we found most interesting, but after testing the first beta just a couple of days later, not everything has been fun and games. I could certainly add a ton of additional reasons why I consider that the OS matters, but today, it's time to talk about the five reasons why I'm disappointed. Let’s start this list with a disclaimer though. There's nothing in these five disappointments that considers iOS either superior or inferior to other platforms. There's no such thing as a perfect operating ...
