iPad Mini Keynote Now Available As Podcast Download From iTunes

While Apple may have made the iPad Mini special event video available for streaming, those of you who don’t want to be tied to a WiFi network are in luck.

$99 iPad mini clone announced by GooPhone

If you’re not familiar with GooPhone (because, why would you be, right?), then let me explain. GooPhone is the stupendously brilliant Chinese company that clones Apple’s designs, then launches its products before Apple. When Apple releases its product, GooPhone tries to sue. It’s a foolproof business plan, isn’t it? Well today, GooPhone has announced its…

Apple posts first iPad mini commercial on YouTube [video]

I don’t know about you, but this TV ad reminds me of a certain Tom Hanks film from years ago. It’s another example of simplistic iPad advertisement. Nothing but the device and a clean soundtrack. Nicely done again, Apple’s marketing team. (Side note: write in the comments if you know which movie I’m referring to. If you don’t know, you need to get…

iPad mini Smart Cover promo vid is simplistic perfection [video]

Call me a romantic, but I’m a huge fan of simple video. Back when I was in film school, the short films/movies that really stood out to me were the ones that had little dialogue and used the moving image to tell you the story. They don’t tell you what to think, instead they leave you to decide how you feel about it for yourself. The latest iPad mini…

iBooks 3.0 goes live with scrolling, purchased books, and social features

Apple has just released the iBooks 3.0 update on the iOS App Store, and it’s pretty sweet. Any books you’ve downloaded before (not samples, only full books) will appear in the “Purchased Books” collection – though this does include free books you downloaded on a whim, and you can’t remove them. The most notable feature, however, is the ability to…

iPad mini gets Siri, iPad 2 doesn’t

Unsurprisingly, the iPad mini will have access to Siri, Apple’s voice assistant software. The iPad 2, however, still will not. Apple’s excuse for excluding older devices from new software features usually leans on a loose explanation of the device’s hardware not being up-to-snuff, but the iPad mini has virtually the same hardware as the iPad 2 in…

Apple stock shrinks to match new iPad mini

The stock market didn’t do so well today, and Apple wasn’t immune. Even with the launch of many new products today, including a 13″ MacBook Pro with Retina Display, a new Mac mini (not to be confused with McMini, a delicious McDonalds sandwich), a redesigned iMac, and even the fabled iPad mini (along with a refreshed iPad with Retina Display – 4th…

Newly purchased 3rd gen iPads can be traded in for newest model

Apple surprised quite a few people today by announcing the fourth generation full-sized iPad alongside the iPad mini. It was widely speculated that the Cupertino-based company would release a slightly tweaked version of the third generation with a Lightning connector, but most people didn’t expect Apple to release the next major tablet refresh,…
