Will The iPad Mini Replace The iPad 2?

When Apple unveiled the new iPad earlier this year, the company reduced the price of the iPad 2. The price drop ensured the iPad 2 still had plenty of life left in it until the next iPad hit in 2013. That was the thought at least, but one analyst isn’t so sure. Rob Chira, an analyst with Evercore Partners, believes …

Netflix has been pushing its “Just for Kids” section on stationary platforms like game consoles and PCs for a while now. It’s a great way for parents to let their children run free on Netflix without worry. The only downside is that the section has only been available on the devices that parents also use frequently.

How Many Ports Of Myst Do We Really Need?

If you have been a gamer since the early 90s, you are probably aware of Cyan World’s Myst series. I got my start on the sequel, Riven, but I went back to play the original as well. I never actually got into the other games, but they’re decently popular. They’re apparently popular enough to warrant a port for every single …

Without a doubt, one of the biggest highlights of yesterday’s WWDC 2012 keynote was iOS 6. Apple’s latest mobile operating system packs in over 200 new features, some of which we heard about at yesterday’s keynote, some of which have come to light as developers have gotten their hands on the new iOS 6 beta. Of course, every update – …

iOS 5.1.1 Jailbroken, But Don’t Update Just Yet

Yesterday we brought you news that Apple had released iOS 5.1.1, a minor update that focused mainly on squashing a few bugs that had been discovered since the release of iOS 5.1 back in March. As usual, those whose iOS devices are jailbroken were warned not to update to the newest version. We are, after all, still waiting on a …

iPad 2 Gets A Battery Boost From New Processor

Last month we brought you a surprising story about the iPad 2. While most Apple products get a price reduction with the launch of their next-generation successor, one thing they don’t get is a hardware upgrade. It turned out, though, that with the launch of the new iPad the iPad 2 got a processor upgrade. The iPad 2’s new processor, …

iOS 5.1 Jailbreak Coming Soon-ish. Maybe.

If you’re a member of the iOS jailbreak community, you know that sometimes a jailbreaking a new version of iOS can take awhile. While Apple is legally required to tolerate jailbreaking – and by “tolerate” I mean “not sue jailbreakers” – they are not obligated to make it easy. In fact, Apple has long been in the habit of making …

iPad 2 Quietly Gets A Processor Upgrade

When Apple unveiled their new iPad early last month, they also announced that last year’s model, the iPad 2, would be getting a reduction in price. Each model of iPad 2 got a $100 price reduction in the wake of the new iPad announcement, dropping the price for the lowest-end model, the 16GB Wi-fi only version – down to $399. …

Jailbreak For iOS 5.1 Still Weeks Away

When Apple unveiled their new iPad on March 7th they also rolled out iOS 5.1. This was great news for most iOS users, but frustrating for those (like me) who prefer their iPhones jailbroken. As expected, iOS 5.1 possessed none of the vulnerabilities that had been used to crack its predecessor, iOS 5. What’s more, iOS 5 proved especially difficult …

iPad 2 vs New iPad – Can You See The Difference?

If you are currently in possession of both the iPad 2 and the recently released New iPad, are you able to tell the cosmetic difference between the two models? Place them side by side and try to see if you can find any difference between them, especially pertaining to the clarity of the display. If you have done this, do …

New iPad Speed, Camera Compared to iPad 2 [Videos]

We just looked at a drop test comparison between the new iPad and the iPad 2. The new one is more durable (it’s also heavier). Now, let’s see how they stack up on speed. Being faster was supposed to be one of the big selling points of the new version (in addition to the retina display, camera, etc.). It looks …
