Washington Post app for iPad

The Washington Post has launched an iPad app and while newspapers (and magazines) are still struggling to find their way towards the digital future, by the looks of the video below, their marketing departments are becoming savvy and fast.

Yes it would be nice to have an iNewstand for periodicals. Yes it would be great if Apple and publishing outlets to come to an agreement on subscription plans and customer data. Yes it would be tremendous if it all just worked and I could wake up every morning and have my newspapers and magazines already downloaded and waiting for me, Kindle-style but iPad-quality. But for now it's at least interesting to watch the various companies experiment with apps.

If you've checked out Washington Post for iPad, let us know what you think.

Even cases that are part of Apple's "made for iPhone" program are reportedly being pulled.

Verizon airs "Breakaway" iPad commercial

No the title isn't a typo -- Verizon has actually aired an iPad commercial called Breakaway. Since Verizon is now carrying the iPad Wi-Fi in a bundle with the Verizon Mi-Fi hotspot device, it makes sense they'd want to promote it. Still, feels weird. Like something is a changing...

Check out the commercial after the break and let us know what you think.

TinyUmbrella update (4.1.13) allows iOS 4.2b3 SHSH blobs to be saved.

Semaphore has updated TinyUmbrella (4.1.13) to allow for the saving of iOS 4.2b3 SHSH blobs for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and the iPad. This is the first time SHSH blobs are being saved for a beta release and the significance is as of yet unknown, but semaphore tweeted that it might be used to assist the untethering of future jailbreaks. Since the release of iOS 4.2 is imminent, iOS 4.2b3 signatures will not be available for long.

You can download TinyUmbrella from the link below to save both iOS 4.1 and iOS 4.2b3 SHSH blobs regardless of what firmware you are currently on and I recommend doing so immediately just in case they are needed down the line...
