    Before the release of Apple's newest tablet, when we were all still calling it the "iPad 3," there was the usual tempest of rumor and speculation regarding the new device. Some of this scuttlebutt, like the Retina display, proved to be true. Other unverified claims, like quad-core processors and an 8MP camera, didn't. My favorite rumor at the time, because I didn't care much about either tablet cameras or CPU core count, was that Apple would be eliminating the home button on its new iPad, leaving a clean uninterrupted bezel all the way around the screen. It wasn't the first time we'd heard ...

    Skype is an excellent way to keep in touch with your friends, co-workers and family especially if you're using it over WiFi or an unlimited data plan, resulting in free Skype-to-Skype calls. If you have the application installed on your iOS device, you might want to update to the latest version. Open up the iTunes App Store on your iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, or iPad and install the refresh. It brings a new feature: the ability to move own video preview when in a call. Additionally, the app now auto restarts if unexpectedly shut down, accessibility has been improved, same goes for ...

    While Spotify on the iPhone was recently updated with 320kbps streaming option and some other improvements in the fresh 0.4.24 version, users on Android are eagerly waiting for a "major" update -- or any update, really -- and so do iPad users. Of course you can run the iPhone app on your iPad but that's half the experience and if you're a music enthusiast and have an iPad, this should be something to get you through the (already long) waiting. A Swedish engineer posted the above image to Instagram, claiming that it is a beta version of Spotify's official iPad app. The description was "It's ...

    One is a tablet version of Apple's hallmark photo-manipulation software. The other is a mobile version of Adobe's category-defining Photoshop, the program so ubiquitous its name became a verb. They're both recent additions to the App Store, and I wondered what it was like to use both. So I installed them both to a 2012-edition iPad and gave them a quick test run. Magical virtual brushes, fun with layers, and ridiculous mistakes that only great tutorials can fix. It's all there. Also included: me in a pirate hat. Join me as I put these apps through their paces and get a general impression ...

    There are some recent reports regarding the 4G variant of the latest Apple tablet and its inability to connect or maintain a 3G connection without a restart. It seems that some users of the New iPad 4G + WiFi are only experiencing this issue when connected to 3G networks (that is international users) and that 4G LTE is not affected. These reports come hot on the heels of other alleged and/or problems with the Apple tablet; first there were reports of the New iPad getting warm/hot -- later denied by Apple -- and then followed problems with WiFi connectivity -- with Apple this time ...

    Those who are Apple fans, or simply follow the tech industry, need no introduction when it comes to John Sculley, Apple's former CEO who decided to come on-board as CEO and help the late Steve Jobs "change the world" instead of selling "sugar water" for the rest of his life while at PepsiCo. In an interview with The Economic Times, the ex-CEO, now 73, said that "Apple has an extraordinary executive team" and he sees "many good years ahead" for the Cupertino-based company. With regards to the tablet market, Sculley, an iPad user himself, said that "the only serious tablet competitor in ...

    Owners of the new 2012 iPad barely had time to get their new tablets out of the box before we got news of the first jailbreak working on the model. We've seen some evidence from devs showing that such feats are within reach, but we haven't had a public release just yet. Notable iOS guru pod2g took to Twitter earlier today to update anxious users on his own work towards such a goal, and why we might not be seeing any release in the immediate future. The Chronic Dev Team has reportedly made some progress towards coming up with a userland jailbreak, but its work is incomplete. Just finding ...

    If you've never owned a tablet, there's no device that we could recommend more than Apple's New iPad. We rarely give any product we review a full score of 5 stars out of 5, so there's no mistaking that this is simply one of the best tablets you can purchase at the moment. No product is perfect though, and Apple's past versions of the iPad are also good choices to pick from. With Apple's recent decision to sell their New iPad along with last year's iPad 2, and with the ease that you can find the First-Gen iPad on eBay for a good price, choices can become complicated for any first-time ...

    One of my first camera-phones was also one of the first devices on Sprint to offer true SMS, as Sprint was a latecomer to the standard. In fact, when I bought the phone -a Sanyo SCP-5500, if you're wondering- SMS hadn't yet been launched in my market. I had a device capable of something awesome and convenient which the network didn't yet support. The same thing happened when I bought my first "4G" device, the original HTC Evo; while WiMAX was indeed built-in, it took a while for Sprint to bring coverage to my neighborhood. Once again, my fully-capable device was hobbled by a network that ...

    With the New iPad, more and more developers are pushing out updates for their applications in order to support the higher resolution on the new Apple tablet. Initially, the catalogue only listed 24 applications but the number is growing every day. If you take a look at the screenshot above you'll see that there is a teaser for an upcoming "Retina"-ready Facebook application. Facebook is one of the most popular social networking apps but its functionality and looks are far from its iPhone variant. With the addition of "Retina"-support we'll probably have better graphics but what we really ...

    Regardless if you are using a PC or a Mac, if you have an iPhone or an iPad, you occasionally need to use Apple's iTunes application to sync and update software (if you manage your libraries with something else). A new version of iTunes has been released and, as usual, it is always good to have the latest one installed. It "fixes several issues that may cause iTunes to unexpectedly quit while playing videos, changing artwork size in Grid view, and syncing photos to devices". Additionally, it "addresses an issue where some iTunes interface elements are incorrectly described by VoiceOver and ...

    The ACCC was claiming yesterday that Apple was falsely advertising the iPad in Australia, using the "4G" moniker in its name despite the fact that Australians will not be able to get 4G because of spectrum incompatibilities with the carriers. Apple has reportedly reached an agreement with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission according to which the Cupertino-based company will refund early adopters if they feel they were misled by the claimed "false advertisement". Furthermore, when the case returns to court in May, Apple will fight to defend the New iPad's name. "Ultimately ...

    Ever since Apple released the 2012 edition of its iPad, we've been hearing about little issues with it. First there were the complaints that the tablet was getting too hot during operation, and then we looked at reports of WiFi connectivity problems. The latest finger to be pointed at the iPad claims that the device doesn't charge properly, and it reports having a 100% full charge before reaching its actual capacity. Today, Apple has finally commented on the issue, hoping to explain away any concerns. Apple admits that the new iPad falsely reports a 100% charge, but this is apparently a ...

    The iPad has earned its reputation. While there is strong competition from the likes of Samsung and Asus, neither of these companies have (yet) been able to rival the iPad in terms of screen resolution and software experience. Granted, 2012 will be the year where we see an all-out arms race between tablet purveyors to bring screen resolution, battery life, speed, and form factor to unseen levels, but as of today, in many areas, the iPad still has a tremendous shadow cast on the tablet sector.
