Apple, iBooks, and competing with Kindle

Buried among the numbers at yesterday's iPad and Mac event, Tim Cook announced a new version of iBooks with a few new features. From the beginning I'd heard the iPad mini was about removing weight and cost as barriers of entry to iPad sales, and about taking the ebook fight to Amazon and, as Ryan Block of GDGT aptly terms them, their Kindle line of consumer content appliances. Yet the event came and went without Apple matching the Kindle on pricing, or challenging Amazon on ebooks. Why?

Letterpress by Atebits review

Letterpress is deceptively simple. A five-by-five grid of letters is laid out on the screen. You and your opponent have full visibility to the board, and must make words out of the letters provided. As you do, those letters are colored in—blue for your letters, red for theirs—and each move steals letters back, affecting the letter-count score at the top of the screen. Things get slightly trickier when the letters on the four sides of a played letter are also played in the same color, when the lock-in effect causes the center to go darker. In this case, the letter can still be played, but no points transfer. Each word must consist of at least two letters, and no word can be re-played.

Weekly Photo Contest: Lens Flare!

It's time to announce this week's photo contest -- lens flare! With all the hype surrounding purple flare on the iPhone 5, we figured it'd be fun to have a photo contest dedicated to lens flare. The winning entry will not necessarily contain purple lens flare, however, so don't consider this a requirement. Just get creative with lens flare and if purple flare adds to the creativity, then by all means, try to include it!

Congrats to jamesdaly for winning last week's Instagram photo contest!

iPad mini vs. Kindle Fire 7 HD vs. Nexus 7 vs. Surface RT vs. PlayBook: Spec shootout!

Apple has just announced the iPad mini and that means they've fully entered the small tablet space. Priced starting at $329, however, they didn't obliterate it as some (including yours truly) thought they would. There's now plenty of room under Apple's umbrella for competitors to compete on price.

Updated Apple iPad and Mac event wallpaper

Apple has put up some new artwork for their iPad and Mac event today, so we went ahead and made an updated, though still quick and dirty version for Retina wallpaper. It's 2048x2048 so it'll fit a Retina iPad perfectly. It'll also fit a Retina iPhone or iPod touch, just center it up and crop off the sides.
