Ninja Tip: How to install iMovie on the original iPad 1

Consternated that Apple won't let you install the new iMovie app on your original iPad 1 and wondering how to get around that restriction? Sure it doesn't have cameras, a fancy Apple A5 chip or 512MB of RAM but iPad 1 can still handle some light video editing so if that's what you've got and iMovie is what you want, stay with us after the break and we reckon to show you how to get it!

WARNING: It may not work on Windows, it may disappear the minute you sync again with iTunes, it could cause conflicts in syncing with iTunes requiring a restore, and could otherwise aim to misbehave. Unless you really need iMovie on your original iPad, you may want to avoid this an just get ReelDirector off the App Store.

Daily Tip: How to stream AVI and MKV via iPhone or iPad to Apple TV

Last night I sat down with my iPhone running iOS 4.3, tapped on the freshly updated version of Air Video, connected to my Mac Pro running the beta version of Air Video server, cued up some AVI and MKV files, and streamed them flawlessly to my Apple TV via iOS 4.3's AirPlay. My iPhone wasn't Jailbroken. My Apple TV wasn't Jailbroken. But with a huge geeky grin plastered on my face I was finally watching all those old home videos and DVD rips that were never before supported, in any way, by Apple and their luddite Hollywood licensors.

iOS 4.3 might be a minor update in many ways but it's also a game changer for Apple and iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users. It turns every one of those devices into a media server (AirPlay) and viewing client (Home Sharing or apps like Air Video) at the same time. And it cuts the tether of iTunes and the shackles of sync to do it.

That an iPad or iPhone had to be the intermediary was cumbersome, that the setup required an on-PC server component was complex, but it was all doable and once done it just worked. If you want to try it out, follow on after the break.

TiPb Answers: Why isn't iPad 2 dual-mode GSM+CMDA?

Instead of releasing separate iPad 2 models for AT&T/GSM and Verizon/CDMA, why doesn't Apple just use that new Qualcomm dual-mode chipset and support both GSM and CDMA on one device? That way users could not only swap microSIMs and move between different GSM/HSPA networks when they travel abroad, they could switch between AT&T and Verizon's CDMA/EVDO networks when at home. (For an explanation of what all those terms mean see TiPb's data and wireless networking glossary.)
