by on August 31, 2010

In the last couple of days, an iTunes survey has been going around that references the ability to instantly watch iTunes Store video content on the iPad. At this time, such a feature is not available.

Since the ability to instantly watch iTunes video content on iPad is not an available feature, it showing up in a survey has raised some interest.

When asked about satisfaction pertaining to iTunes video content … Read More

Review: Jubilee (An Elegant Birthday Reminder For The iPad)

I’m good at remembering a lot of things in my life, but birthdays are not one of them. I’ll never have to miss another birthday greeting again though thanks to Jubiliee.

Jubiliee for the iPad has a beautiful interface, great functionality and a nice selection of eCards to justify it’s $3.99 price tag.

At The End Of My Tether
by on August 30, 2010

So I own the wifi-only iPad. Which is fine, as I work from home and use wifi most of the time.

And I only have 500 Megs of 3G data a month (I know, I know, brutal) but I’d still like, on that odd occasion, to tether my iPad to my iPhone. Call me old fashioned (since this discussion has been going on pretty much since the iPad was announced).

So can … Read More

iPads Now Shipping in 24 Hours in Canada

Ah, the iPad. What a neat device to carry around when you’re traveling or when you’re loafing on the coach at home. My iPad has become the ultimate “coffee table” device and has allowed us to search for things quickly and easily without busting out our laptops.

When the iPad first launched in Canada, there were shortages here (and around the world). Ship times were delayed for customers due … Read More

Review: Instapaper for iPad and iPhone

Sometimes, I come across an app that changes how I handle my day-to-day life. These apps make me wonder how I functioned before they took over their particular niche in my life, and make the $800-odd decision of buying an iPad seem absolutely – fruitful.

Instapaper is no doubt one of those apps. For those than have not heard, Instapaper is a service that allows you to save articles you find … Read More

Beautiful News Reader, or Most Beautiful?
by on August 28, 2010

When it comes to news readers, you can hardly get one better looking than this. Flipboard for the iPad presents your social media and news feeds in a beautiful, elegant way.

It makes browsing your Twitter and Facebook feeds seem like you are flipping through an elegant magazine like Esquire.  I especially like the way it presents tweets from your friends, again giving things a magazine feel by putting the quotes … Read More

My Review of Apple’s Pages App for iPad
by on August 27, 2010

One of the first applications I purchased was Apple’s Pages for editing text documents. I wanted to be able to read and edit documents on the iPad and figured that this editor would probably do why I was looking for.

Pages is not a full editor

I am currently reviewing and editing a book that should be published by end of this year and I was hoping to be able to … Read More
