One of the most interesting revelations of Apple’s iPad announcement was that the A4 processor was made in-house by Apple. Why would Apple go this route?

The New York Times developed their iPad app within three weeks. Other companies are not jumping at the chance to cash in on … Read More
The iPad is going to make reading digital content on a device incredibly beautiful and interactive. We saw a preview of what is to come from Interview Magazine. Wired Magazine just announced at the TED 2010 conference that they will have a dedicated iPad magazine by this summer.

I’d like to thank Bill Gates for creating the Windows operating system that I first learned to love to use. I’d also like to thank him for creating the Windows operating system that helped me develop these fine qualities: patience, perseverance, and anger management. Okay, so life with Windows 95/98/ME/2000/XP wasn’t that bad (oh wait, YES it was!) at first, but at the end of the day I’m glad I … Read More
