Slope by Dekke is the most magical iPad stand you'll ever own

Slope by Dekke is a new stand for iPad, actually tablets in general, that is unique in its own right. As you can see above, it looks much like the base of an iMac stand and pairs beautifully with an attached iPad. The most amazing part, however, is that it uses a series of tiny air pockets to secure your iPad into place and secure itself to most surfaces. It really is like magic.

iPad Air Smart Case review

Apple typically releases two types of cases for the iPad, the Smart Cover and the Smart Case. While the Smart Cover only protects the screen and attaches magnetically, the Smart Case provides full body protection in a variety of different colors. The last generation Apple Smart Case left us disappointed to say the least. Let's see if the new version is any better...

iPad Air vs iPhone 5s: iSight and FaceTime camera shootout!

While the iPad Air now has the same, improved front-facing FaceTime HD camera as the iPhone 5s - and every other 2013 iOS device - its rear-facing iSight camera remains very much unchanged from the iPad 4 and original iPad mini. What has changed however is the software and hardware that power it. With iOS 7 and the very same Apple A7 found in the iPhone 5s - and the very same image signal processor (ISP) - the iPad Air could see an overall boost in quality anyway. To measure how it stacks up, we put the 5 megapixel iPad Air camera up against the 8 megapixel camera, not see if it would win - it doesn't have a chance - but to see how close it can come!

iPad Air photo gallery: Silver and Space Gray!

The iPad Air is Apple's latest and greatest full sized tablet offering. It comes equipped with an Apple A7 processor and weighs in at only a pound, making it ultra light and responsive. We'll have more on performance in our full review but for now, if you're undecided on what color iPad Air you'd like and want to see both models side by side as well as how it stacks up to other iPad models, follow along and check out our image gallery!

iPad Air: Design evolution

The iPad Air is an amazing piece of design and engineering. What was first introduced in 2010 as a 0.5-inch, 1.5lbs post-PC revolution has been steadily transformed into a 0.29-inch, 1lbs damn-near MacBook Air-level revelation. Packing the power of an Apple A7 into something barely any bigger than the 9.7-inch screen it encases is impressive enough by itself, but when you see and feel it next to what's come before, the difference of three years and half-a-pound is enormous.

iPad Air preview

3 years after Steve Jobs introduced the first magical and revolution iPad, Apple has kept the same unbelievable price but once again set the bar higher when it comes to their most advanced technology. It's still 9.7-inches. It's still a Retina display. It still runs the over one million apps - almost half of which are now tablet optimized - in the App Store. But it's once again thinner, lighter, and faster. Only this time it's even thinner and lighter, and the speed boost? On paper at least, insane. If you're thinking of upgrading to an iPad Air, however, or of buying one as your first full-sized iPad, what does that mean to you?

Dragon Realms combines monster collecting, town building, and online battles

Yesterday we looked at Elemental Kingdoms, a card battling RPG. Today we're back with a massively multiplayer online RPG/town-building hybrid called Dragon Realms. The spiritual successor to last year’s Kingdom Age, Dragon Realms was developed internally at GREE’s RPG+ Studio. Hundreds of creatures to collect, cooperative and PVP play, and cross-platform multiplayer make for a lengthy and addictive experience.

Round table review: OS X Mavericks

Last Tuesday Apple released OS X 10.9 Mavericks, the tenth generation of their modern desktop operating system. We've already published Peter Cohen's extensive OS X Mavericks review, but many of us have been using it for awhile now as well, some since the beta went live following WWDC 2013 in June. So, to bring you as many opinions as possible, we've put together a good, old-fashioned, Mobile Nations round table. Here's what all of us think of Mavericks!

iPhone 5c internals and Apple A6 gallery

We've already given you a look at the inside of the iPhone 5s and the A7 chipset so we figured we'd give them iPhone 5c the same treatment. For the most part, a lot of the components are the same as the iPhone 5c's predecessor, the iPhone 5. However, there are some subtle differences on both the inside and on the logic board itself. Let's take a closer look!

If you're curious about the internal workings of the iPhone 5s, we've got the ultimate photo gallery for you from cracking open the iPhone 5s all the way down to what's underneath the logic board shields, including the Apple A7 chip itself. I even threw in some photos of the A6 chipset from the iPhone 5c just for comparison's sake. So click through and enjoy the iPhone 5s in all it's silicon glory!
