iSkin makes some pretty popular iPhone cases, so we've been waiting patiently for the company to bring out its iPad covers. While it doesn't have anything yet that features a kickstand option, the two new cases--the Vu and the Duo--offer some similar design traits to iSkin's line of iPhone cases, including a layer of Microban that's supposed to keep bacteria from making a home on your case.
The Duo retails for $49.99 and is available in yellow, purple, brown, sky, pink, red, and clear. Meanwhile, the Vu retails for $64.99 and is available in … Read more
Driven by the allure of the iPad, tablet PCs will surpass Netbooks in sales in just two years, according to a report released Thursday by Forrester Research.
In the U.S. alone, the burgeoning tablet industry is expected to sell 20.4 million units in 2015 compared with just 3.5 million this year, a compound annual growth rate of 42 percent, says Forrester's report "The U.S. Consumer PC Market in 2015." By 2014, more people will use tablets than Netbooks, and by 2015, tablets will make up 23 percent of all PC sales, forecasts Forrester.… Read more
Pornography, like beauty, is very much in the eye of the beholder.
For some, pornography is any woman in an advanced state of nakedness and any man without shorts. (Unless they're at, say, a hot springs in Calistoga, Calif.) For others, porn is the amount of food some Americans like to put on their plates.
So perhaps one should vigorously exercise subjectivity on hearing that Apple is reportedly to allow the Sun newspaper to enjoy a magical iPad app.
Some might be surprised at this decision as, in 2009, Apple prevented an app called Newspaper(s) from appearing on the iPhone specifically because this app offered all the finest aspects of the Sun newspaper.
By "finest," I am naturally implying that the app contained shots of girls next door who happened to have omitted their shirts. These are lovingly known in the U.K. as the "Page 3 girls."
This time around the situation is, allegedly, different. PaidContent reported that the Sun's iPad app has been approved because all who download it (for almost $8) have to declare that they have more than 300 growing in their armpits and 12 on their chins. Yes, you must state that you are 17.
Your first reaction might be that if all an app needs to do to gain approval is to ask every downloader whether he or she is of an age to cope with such material, then perhaps there might be a flood of application applications with a hard core of content.… Read more
After a little more than two months, Apple's iPad accounts for about the same amount of Web consumption in North America as RIM's BlackBerry, according to data to be released by Quantcast on Wednesday.
As the above chart shows, the iPad now accounts for 0.1 percent of all Web use, not just the mobile Web. BlackBerry devices also account for 0.1 percent, and a host of other devices (including the PlayStation Portable, Nintendo portable gaming systems, and devices based on other operating systems like WebOS, Brew, Java, Symbian, Windows Mobile) combined to account for yet another … Read more

LOS ANGELES--When Apple first released the iPad tablet, there was an instant burst of debate over whether it could or would replace Netbooks as the portable computing platform of choice. After all, both classes of devices have similar smalls screens and use low-power parts to provide long battery life, far beyond the average 15-inch laptop.
My initial view was that the iPad was not a Netbook killer. Despite its strengths, it lacked the software flexibility, and the traditional keyboard/touch pad input scheme, that most productivity tasks require. At the same time, figuring out how to substitute a small, lightweight iPad in situations where one would normally carry a laptop seemed like appealing challenge. … Read more
