With revamped Expose controls, iPhoto, Garageband, and all that other good stuff, OSX Lion and iLife ’11 will definitely be something to look forward to. For those who watched the conference, you might remember the infamous Steve Jobs introducing the new OS as a hybrid of all that’s good on the Mac and the iPad.
Now both you and I know that it’s quite unlikely that Apple will … Read More

A couple of weeks ago when beta 2 of iOS 4.2 for iPad launched, there were reports of the iPad including tethering preferences for iPad 3G models.
When photos of the tethering option were found, this immediately started speculation that the iPad 3G would be receiving iPhone-like tethering.

The folks over at iSpazio have posted up an image and video concept of what an iPad 2 would look … Read More
When Steve Jobs unveiled the iPad to an expectant world on January 27, one of the applications he showed off was the New York Times.
