iPad 2 Cover: It’s not a case, okay?

One of the few surprises out of Apple’s recent iPad 2 keynote event was the introduction of Smart Covers. These simple screen covers (the company emphasizes they are covers, not cases) from Apple essentially ‘snap’ onto the side of the iPad 2 with powerful magnets (don’t worry, it’s flash memory, no data wipe here) and [...]

Dell XPS Gives MacBook Pro Some Competition

Dell recently released a new string of very impressive XPS laptops, the XPS 17 and the XPS 15 (the numbers have to do with the size of the laptop screens available, either 15” or 17”).  Each of them offers a wide variety of customization options and feature Intel’s all-new 2nd generation i7 processors.

iPad is King

The announcement of the iPad 2 is only a short ways away, but the original iPad is still king of the tablets.  Many companies are making their own versions of tablets to compete with the iPad, and many of them have done a decent job of it.  But nobody has been able to dethrone the [...]


Apple Strikes Hard With Thunderbolt

No doubt you’ve heard about Apple’s release of their new line of MacBook Pros.  These laptops come brand-new with shiny new features, faster Intel processors, better graphics processing units, and (ohemgee) Thunderbolt!

Apple Takes a Bite Out of Profits

After quite a while, Apple is finally going to start charging for subscription services.  Up to this point, Apple has allowed companies like Netflix to gain 100% of the profits made from their subscription apps for iPhones and iPods.  How much of the total profit will Apple be taking?  About 30%.  Which is fair, seeing [...]


Adobe Flash In Danger of Becoming a Flashback

Ever since Apple’s “denouncement” of Adobe Flash (like when Apple decided to forego Flash on the iPad), Flash has been getting a bit kicked around.  People, especially product developers, seem to have mixed feelings about having Flash support on their mobile devices when they ship.  The Motorola Xoom is in the same boat; it will [...]
