What to know about Apple’s iPad

As you might know, Apple has released its tablet computer, the iPad. The iPad is essentially an enlarged iPhone. It runs the iPhone OS 3.2 (Which must be due to launch in the next 60 days), is able to use iPhone applications, and has a special interface just for the the iPad. From a first look it does not look that impressive. But, as the old adage says, “Never judge a book by its cover.” Though I was only able to see the iPad on the stage, hands on with the iPad will be different. It is slick, and simple to use, and as Steve Jobs says 75 Million people know how to work an iPad, as the iPhone and iPod touch are similar. I believe that the iPad needs a camera (or two) and a few USB ports — but not all wishes come true.


  • 9.7-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit glossy widescreen Multi-Touch display with IPS technology
  • 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB flash drive
  • 1GHz Apple A4 custom-designed, high-performance, low-power system-on-a-chip
  • Up to 10 hours of surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching video, or listening to music
  • Microphone — possibly to run Skype?

Somethings to note:

Runs the iPhone 3.2 OS — so the iPhone OS 3.2 should be released in the next few days.
Background is a picture — iPhone will be able to change background in OS 3.2?

P.S. Apple, next time choose a better name!


iPod Nano 5th Gen. “The Does-Everything iPod”

The iPod Nano 5th Generation is simply breathtaking, inside and out.  With the latest model of the iPod nano family, Apple has incorporated many features consumers have been suggesting and discussing since the original iPod.  The highlights of the latest and thinnest from Apple include the built in radio with live pause, pedometer, and the fantastic video camera.  First, Apple has done it again giving the option between 9 vivid eye-catching colors, each painted onto a new type of aluminum that is glossy and lightweight.  Not to mention that my new nano fits into a credit card slot in my wallet it is so thin!  Also, the screen was made even larger making your video-viewing and gaming experiences even better.


Windows Games on a Mac? Yes.

Ever wanted to play Grand Theft Auto, Mass Effect, Modern Warfare 2, Left 4 Dead, Counter Strike Source, Fallout 3 on your Mac?

You’re probably wondering. “Window’s games on MY Mac, in OSX? Impossible.” Well I hate to say it but you are wrong. Linux’s WINE is a piece of software that allows for Windows games to run on Linux. Why does this have anything to do with your Mac?

Jailbreaking…Good or Bad?

As you may have heard, people who have purchased an iPhone or an iPod Touch of any generation are able to “Jailbreak” the system. But what exactly is “Jailbreaking?”  iPhones and iPod Touches are capable of lots of customization, but Apple put a restriction on them to make them uniform. “Jailbreaking” is simply breaking that restriction with the help of certain software.
a. themes
b. more room for apps

-Applications Apple rejects: Google Voice
-System wide configurations

-Viruses can be easily caught by downloading cracked apps
-Can’t turn off iTouch/iPhone without having to restore it when you turn it on again (Tether Jailbreaks).
a. leads to always having on which leads to battery problems.

So, is it worth risking your $199-$399 Apple hand-held glory just for customization and app access?
