  • iPad 2 Line at Austin Apple Pop-Up Store

    Meet The Guy Who Bought The First iPad 2 At The SXSW Apple Pop-Up Store

    Because the iPad 2 launch had the fortitude to coincide with SXSW, Apple did well by the thousands of fanboys and fanladies that have descended upon the city and built a pop up shop at 6th and Congress. We braved the line today and got the chance to speak to the lucky man who bought the very first iPad 2 sold in Austin, Texas. Austin native and conference attendee “Sweet” John… Read More

  • iFixit Tears Down The iPad 2: No Surprises, But 512MB Of RAM


    There isn’t much in the way of significant changes except the inclusion of the cameras, the spec bump to A5 and (as rumored) 512MB of RAM, and of course the generally thinner profile. One thing: the speakers are laughably small, though probably no smaller than the competition. One of these days a tablet will come along that doesn’t make your music sound like it’s at the… Read More

  • iPad 2 Shipping Window Slips To 2-3 Weeks


    The iPad 2 went on sale today through multiple brick and mortar stores and Apple’s website. Hopefully eager buyers set their alarm clocks. The iPad 2 was originally listed with a 3-5 day shipping estimate. Now it’s 2-3 weeks for all but the 64GB Verizon iPad, which is listed with a 1-2 week window. At this point it’s probably quickest to turn to Best Buy or Walmart. My… Read More

  • Analyst: Non-iPad Tablets Will Be Collecting Dust On Store Shelves

    The immense popularity of the iPad, and now the iPad 2, has Apple’s competitors, in the words of Steve Jobs, flummoxed. What to do? According to a J.P. Morgan Research analyst, it may well be that all of these competitor tablets will be sitting on the store shelves as folks decide en masse that the iPad is the way to go. In other words, competitors try to convince people that their tablet… Read More

  • iPad Versions Of iMovie And GarageBand Touch Down Early


    Although I generally consider iMovie an abomination, I have some hopes that once they put a decent camera on the iPad and bump that resolution to the rumored 2048×1536, it’ll actually be a very interesting proposition. Until then, I’ll let them work out the bugs and refine the interface — but if you’re more optimistic, you can go download it right now. iMovie and… Read More

  • How Bad Is The iPad 2's Rear Camera? This Bad [Update]

    The first round of iPad 2 reviews dropped yesterday and the rear-facing camera wasn’t a big topic of discusion. In fact, besides Engadget, no one really covered it. Joshua stated, “Let’s just put this out there: the iPad 2 cameras are really pretty bad” and his demo shots backed up that claim. Well, another video purportedly from the new iPad just hit and it confirms it… Read More

  • AT&T and Verizon Stores Getting iPad 2 On March 11 [Update: And Walmart!]

    AT&T and Verizon are getting ready for an iPad 2 fight. Both carriers will sell the iPad 2 – running on their own networks – at the same time on March 11. Interestingly, Verizon’s version will run on its CDMA networks natively. Both are offering competing data plans. AT&T’s includes: Monthly statements: $14.99 for 250 MB or $25 for 2 GB. Customers who exceed… Read More

  • Before It Even Begins, Apple Wins SXSW

    Over the past week, there’s been a major dilemma in Geekland: what do we do on March 11? You see, we’ve known for months that it’s the first day of the SXSW conference in Austin, Texas. But last Wednesday, Apple announced it would also be the day that the iPad 2 officially goes on sale. The questions immediately began: do we keep our plans intact and head to Austin? Or do we… Read More

  • The iPad 2: Yeah, You're Gonna Want One.

    In January 2010, shortly after its unveiling, I first got my hands on an iPad. My initial reaction? “The iPad is like holding the future.” And that’s funny because here we are, just a little over a year into that future, and something new has come along that makes holding the iPad 1 feel like holding the past: the iPad 2. A week ago, after its unveiling, I got some hands on… Read More

  • Somebody Named Peter Ha Reviews The iPad 2

    I don’t know who this hippie is, or who he thinks he is, but he’s got an iPad 2 and wants you to know about it. He’s recorded this video for a publication called “The Daily,” whatever that is, and uploaded it to some video sharing service. Wait, is that Peter? I made this guy. Oh yeah, we reviewed it too.

  • World Record: The iPad Is The Only Camera With A Lower Resolution Than Its Display

    I think we can all admit that the iPad’s camera, while welcome, is pretty much just bad. I took issue with the iPod touch’s camera, wondering where Apple can even find such a low-resolution sensor these days, but Jack Deneut at Nelso makes the interesting observation that on the iPad 2, it produces a dubious honor: it appears to be the first camera with a lower resolution than… Read More

  • Jump Ball

    By the end of the iPad 2 launch event this Wednesday, you could see a future without Windows. Not just Office dead, or in the cloud. An alternate universe, a path not taken, a recall of global proportions. As Doc Searls may have said or something like it, dead OS walking. Everything about Wednesday was about what wasn’t yet said. As Steve Jobs moved through the material — the… Read More

  • Belkin Announces Its First Set Of iPad 2 Accessories

    We did a little accessory roundup on the day of the iPad 2 announcement, but other companies were a little slow on the draw (or didn’t want to get buried) and their stuff is trickling out now. Belkin, maker of fine Mac accessories, has just dropped a bundle of cases and stands. Let’s take a quick look. Read More

    You’ve seen the parodic banned white iPhone 4 promo video, so you know what to expect. Below is the transcript of “Johnny Five”‘s introduction, just in case you hadn’t seen the previous fake Apple promo video, so you too will know what to expect. Or you can just watch it, of course. Read More

    With every new Apple product launch, there’s now an expectation that we’re going to get a video made by Apple to help explain the product. You know the ones. They feature Apple executives (though, oddly, never CEO Steve Jobs) set against a white background telling us how great and revolutionary the product is. They’re brilliant and effective. But they definitely also take… Read More
