UPDATED: iPad 2 having problems connecting to Verizon 3G?

Verizon iPad 2 owners are complaining that if they turn off 3G in settings they can't reconnect to Verizon's 3G network unless they reboot. Restoring hasn't helped and apparently swapping devices hasn't helped either. It's unclear how many Verizon iPad 2 3G users are suffering with the bug but an Apple Discussions thread has already filled with page after page of complaints.

UPDATE: Apple issues the following statement concerning the Verizon 3G connection problem:

We are aware that a small number of iPad 2 customers have experienced connectivity issues with the Verizon 3G network and we are investigating it [All Things D]

UPDATED: Apple pulls Best Buy’s iPad 2 inventory due to strange sales practices? [rumor]

A reader of CrunchGear, who works for Best Buy, said that Best Buy was holding off on selling the iPad 2’s it had in stock, telling customers there weren’t any available. In fact they were in stock but allegedly Best Buy had just reached its sales quota for the day and wanted to hold further sales over to another day. As a result Apple is rumored to have pulled all stock of iPad 2’s from Best Buy stores with the exception of display models.

iPhone vs. Android app UI

iPhone vs. Android app UI

Android Gripes, which I'm guessing is an homage to the terrific Adobe UI Gripes blog, has posted up some screenshots of iPhone apps side by side with their Android counterparts.

When I use an iPhone and an Android phone at the same time, I often find that apps from the same company look a lot different on these two platforms - the ones on Android usually look much worse.

What does Apple have to do to re-revolutionize the iPhone?

What does Apple have to do to re-revolutionize the iPhone?

Lessien, writing on DiogeneX, asks what Apple has to do, not to catch up with things like notifications or cloud services, not to keep up with things like apps and specs, but to truly leap ahead of the competition like.

Apple is as vulnerable as any other company to believing the future is a straight line extrapolation of the present. But eventually the knock-offs will be good enough to fool most people. Solely focusing on incremental improvement is like polishing diamonds. And perfect is the enemy of the good.

GoPano micro, a 360 degree lens that creates panoramic videos on iPhone 4 [video]

GoPano micro, a 360 degree lens that creates panoramic videos on iPhone 4 [video]

US developer eyesee360 is working on a lens that will allow iPhone 4 users to create video in a panoramic 360 degree format. The lens is in a prototype stage at the moment but it has not stopped them releasing a video showing what this accessory is capable of; it is well worth watching.

The GoPano micro is a lens for the iPhone 4 to make 360º panoramic videos! Just snap the lens to your iPhone 4 and press record to make cool interactive 360º videos. Use it to record all the action of your favorite sport, record your next meeting in 360º or just as a fun toy for the summer.

The lens uses similar technology to the company’s “go pano plus” panoramic optics for digital camera, which utilizes an equiangular mirror composed of aluminum substrate to capture a complete panoramic image. The lens enables the iPhone 4 to record all angles at the same time but more importantly, playback the video and pan to different angles whilst watching.

Eyesee360 are currently seeking support through Kickstarter to enable them to make this prototype into a mainstream product.

Take a look at the video after the break. Would you use an accessory like this? Let us know in the comments!
