    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. 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… Read More

  • Dodocase Puts Out Some J. Crew Exclusive iPad 2 Cases

    If you’ve ever looked around for an iPad case, you’ve probably checked out Dodocase. We like this solid, book-like case, and you probably would too. And now there’s a slightly new variety, a collaboration with J. Crew. The primary change appears to be a switch to a more canvas-like material. It’s for the iPad 2 only, so I’m left out of the party, sadly. You can… Read More

  • Tests Put iPad 2 Display Quality Above Xoom, Transformer

    The most important hardware aspect of a tablet is arguably the screen, which is the main object you interact with, and the item through which you receive most of the tablet’s content. Therefore, the quality of that hardware is paramount. And it seems Apple has made sure that its screen is of the highest quality. Motorola? Not so much. Read More

  • Joby Updates Its Ori And Yogi Stands For iPad 2

    Do you spend a lot of time trying to attach your iPad 2 to the limbs of trees, or building elaborate towers on which to perch it?

We saw the original iPad flavor versions of these back at CES, and now they’ve done the adjustments to the design so you can get one for your iPad 2 as well. 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… Read More

  • iOS Passes 200 Million Devices, 25 Million Of Which Are iPads

    Scott Forstall, speaking at WWDC 2011, has just announced some major numbers relating to Apple’s iOS. 200 million iOS devices have been sold, which they claim makes it the #1 mobile operating system in the world. With Android nipping at their heels, that could be a transient title, at least in the mobile phone world. The iPad, however, is another story. Read More

  • Weekend Giveaway: An iPad 2

    If I didn’t know any better, I’d think iPads grew on trees or were on sale at TJ Maxx or something with the number of these things people want to give away. Regardless, we have a 16GB Wi-Fi iPad 2 waiting for you in sunny San Francisco, ready to wing its way to your mailbox in a few days. Want it? Thought so. Here’s how to enter. Read More

  • 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… Read More

  • Honeycomb Has A Fighting Chance Against The iPad

    If you’d asked me a week ago what I thought about Honeycomb, the tablet version of Android, I would have said that it was in very bad shape and that it would be several months before it could even hold a candle to the iPad 2. Because despite my excitement to see Android take on Apple’s ridiculously successful iPad, my experience with the Motorola Xoom — the first Honeycomb… Read More

  • iPad 2 Camera Going More Or Less Unused According To Flickr Stats

    Flickr maintains a live count of the cameras being used on the site, updating constantly with the latest models, showing trends, and so on. And if you head over to the Apple-branded cameras, you find an interesting, though not particularly surprising, statistic: almost nobody is using the iPad 2’s camera. Out of however many million of these things were sold, there are only 22 active iPad… Read More

  • Rex Ray Dodocase, For Art-Lovin' iPad 2 Owners

    We’ve always been fans of the Dodocase, the well-crafted case for iPad, Kindle, and likely some other stuff soon. Their new iPad 2 line looks to be as good as the original we reviewed, but it’s possible that for some, the design is a bit too understated. Solution? Get an artist like Rex Ray to make a splashy, original design for the thing. Read More

  • iPad 2 Gets A Big Launch In Beijing

    MIC Gadgets has taken some great pictures of the iPad 2 launch at the Beijing Apple store. My favorite part? The official scalping area, where people who bought up all the stock can sit and wait for disappointed buyers to come out and buy for a markup. I have to say, though, for a city as big and dense as Beijing, I kind of expected even more people than this. Regardless, Apple’s hot… Read More

  • Will A Thunderbolt Hit The iPhone/iPad Before A Full Ascension Into The Cloud?

    This morning’s upgrades to Apple’s iMac line of computers brought a range of nice features. But most were just spec bumps. The big new addition is Thunderbolt. Following the initial roll-out to the MacBook Pros, the new super high-speed ports are clearly destined to be a key component across Apple’s product lines. But what about Apple’s two key newer products: the… Read More

    955 Dreams Set To Rock The iPad Again With "On The Way To Woodstock"

    A couple months ago, we noted that a company called 955 Dreams was playing the iPad like jazz with their hot app, The History of Jazz. Now they’re back again with another musically-themed iPad app. And it’s far out, man. On The Way To Woodstock takes everything that 955 Dreams learned from the jazz app and expands upon it.

  • Report: iPad 2 To Arrive In Japan On Thursday UPDATE

    Apple started rolling out the iPad 2 internationally right after the launch in the US, but one country was missing from the list: Japan, one of the company’s biggest markets worldwide. The reason, of course, was the quake and tsunami that hit the country on March 11. But today Japan’s biggest business daily, The Nikkei, is reporting that the Japanese will be able to lay their hands… Read More

  • iPad 2 Shipping Estimate Drops To 1-2 Weeks

    The iPad 2 is still a hard Furby to find. It’s still sold out mostly everywhere but at least the estimated wait time is dropping to 1-2 weeks on Apple.com. The shipping window jumped to 4-5 weeks shortly after the iPad 2 first went on sale. Well, it’s been a few weeks since then and the estimate dropped as promised even though the Japanese quake reportedly caused part supply issues. Read More
