    Video: Unlock Any iPad 2 With Just A Smart Cover And 5 Seconds

    Apple, you got some 'splainin' to do! But no, seriously, this is big. Mark Gurman, from 9to5mac, just posted a video showing how incredibly easy it is to unlock an iPad using just a Smart Cover (or magnets, really). Worse yet, it's stupid easy to perform. Any Smart Cover could unlock any iPad 2 and jump into the last used screen. Not that I have anything to hide on my iPad. The only reason I use a… Read More

    Whoops! Sears.com Accidentally Lists iPad 2 For $69

    Anyone looking for a $69 16GB iPad 2? Apparently, some IT guy over at one of Sears' third-party resellers, GSM On Sale, had a bit of a face-palm moment: the site temporarily listed the iPad for $69.99. Oddly enough, the listing claims that you’ll save a whopping $30 by taking advantage of this deal, posting an original price of $99.99. Honestly we’d snatch up an iPad at either of those price… Read More

    Evernote Peek: The First Smart Cover App That Could Make You Smarter

    One of the best parts of the iPad 2 is the colorful, magical smart cover that comes as a peripheral. Lift the cover and your iPad turns on, drop it and it goes to sleep. It's kind of addictive. But what if someone actually built an app around that fidgety behavior? Well, Evernote just did. It's called Evernote Peek, a free app for the iPad 2 that is designed around the smart cover.

    Review: Two Speck iPad 2 Cases

    Rather than waste your entire morning forcing you to read two iPad 2 case reviews (I think I could barely read one at a sitting, but but these are important enough to look at more closely), I've decided to mush together two reviews into one megareview, the way Voltron is made up of multiple robots. To that end, I present to you an assessment of the Speck Pixelskin HD Wrap and their recently… Read More
