Loopt for iPhone gets interesting... in real time!

Loopt has not only launched a new iPad app this week, Loopt Pulse [Free - iTunes link], but now a new version of their iPhone app as well [Free - iTunes link].

What's the big difference? How about the ability to easily find interesting people, places, and events with just your iPhone and Loopt's map screen. Yawing in the middle of a droning conversation, eyes drooping at a lame party, not sure where to go in the center of sleepy-town USA? Loopt's full-scale assault one boredom just might have your back.

There's also a new version for BlackBerry, if you find that interesting.

What will we get in iPhone 4.0?

What will we get in iPhone 4.0?

Tomorrow at 10pm PT, 1pm ET, Steve Jobs puts sneaker to stage and, along with SVP of iPhone software, Scott Forstall, gives us a sneak preview of the highly anticipated iPhone 4.0. No one outside Apple knows exactly what new features and paradigms iPhone 4.0 will offer. However, tradition demands we make our best guesses and ask you to do the same.

This isn't what we want, mind you. We told Apple what we want back on December 25, 2009: multitasking, better notifications, widgets for the home screen, instant access to important settings, themes, gestures like pervasive pull-down-to-refresh, system-wide "back" implementation, orientation lock, and resolution independence, along with a ton of great reader suggestions in the comments. We've also asked for a Finder app, like the Photo but to store document files.

This is what we think we'll actually get, given the rumors and the direction Apple looks to be going. This is us, TiPb staff and TiPb readers reading the tea leaves...

Will the iPad blend?

Yeah, so the iPad does eBooks, movies and apps but what we all really want to know is -- Will it Blend! (iPad smoothy anyone?)

The process is pretty straight forward. Get iPad, place in blender, push button, and see the magic happen. Amusing way to get out your iPad overload frustrations, or do you worry about harmful fumes and the general wastefulness of the project? Video after the break!

Verizon has asked if they can carry the iPhone

Verizon has asked if they can carry the iPhone

In response to the Wall Street Journal's rumor last week about the iPhone being released on Verizon later this year, CEO Ivan Seidenberg remarked to the Council on Foreign Relations:

[Verizon] has told Apple that it wants to carry the iPhone. But he declined to say when — or even if — the popular smart phone will be available for Verizon Wireless customers.

Seidenberg is infamous for reportedly refusing the back in 2007, leading Apple to partner with AT&T, and for once saying Verizon's strategy for competing with the iPhone involved waiting for Steve Jobs to get old.

We're not getting our hopes up for an iPhone 4.0 event "one more thing" yet. You?

How to install an iPad in your car dashboard

Why would you want to install an iPad into your car dashboard? Maybe you're radio's LED is way too small, maybe you want to be the envy of all your friends and loved ones, maybe you just want to enjoy some multitouch entertainment on the go? Whatever your reason, this video is for you!

Doug Bernards (aka The Sound Man) goes through every step in order to turn a regular dashboard LED display into a megalithic iPad control station. It is incredible to watch and makes me ever so jealous.

Take a peek at this cool car mod after the break!

How to use a Bluetooth keyboard with the iPad

It's remarkably simple to use a Bluetooth keyboard with the iPad. First, you just need to ensure that your keyboard supports HID mode, that's Human Interface Device Profile and is pretty much the closest thing to a universal Bluetooth keyboard interface out there these days.

Are you having Wi-Fi connection problems with your iPad?

Are you having Wi-Fi connection problems with your iPad?

Dieter mentioned this in the hardware section of our iPad review, but we've seen enough reports (and gotten enough email about it!) that we wanted to break it out and see how widespread a problem this may be for our readers:

Speaking of that aluminum casing, it blocks WiFi signals pretty effectively. To get around that, Apple placed the WiFi antenna behind the plastic Apple logo. While all reports indicate it’s a good antenna, I do find that I’m getting slightly worse reception on the iPad than I do on other devices.

iPad review

iPad review

iPad is Apple's attempt to define something between the smartphone and laptop, to give the masses silky-smooth software and multitouch glass all wrapped up in unibody aluminum and complete ecosystem control -- to make mainstream the computing appliance starting at just $499. To do this, to justify the iPad's existence, to make us buy a device too big for our pocket and too small for our server room, Steve Jobs said it had to do several things better than either of the categories so well established before: browsing, email, photos, video, music, games, and eBooks.

Given the companies and products that have tried and failed before it, that's audacious even for Apple. Especially for a first generation attempt. How close did they get? Did they get close at all?

Dieter goes hands-on with the iPad hardware and Rene dissects the iPad software after the break!
