TiPb TV 14: iPad 2 rumor boogaloo

The iPad 2 is almost certainly coming this spring and the rumors just won't stop! Will it or won't it have a Retina Display, will there be a Verizon model or a combo model, will it have a bunch of new ports? And most importantly -- will it be smaller and lighter with less bezel?! Those are the questions we're getting asked the most often these days and they're the topic for today's episode of TiPb TV!

We cover the pros of staying 1x with 1024x768, going for it at 2x with 2048x1536 and the cons of trying to do anything in between. We wonder if that new Qualcomm GSM/CDMA chipset could join a super sweet Apple A5 processor inside iPad 2. We talk about Apple taking their Camera Kit and VGA adapter and whether they'd ever really build them into SD card, USB and MiniDisplay ports that some users may just never use.

And then I tell Rene he's wrong about there being no changes coming to the iPad bezel. (Apple better back me up on that!)

Check out the video above and then let us know what you want from Apple in iPad 2 -- and what you absolutely don't want!

Apple already approving apps with iOS 4.3 specific features

Apple has approved an update to an app that required iOS 4.3 for all the features to work correctly. The app that has received the approved update is called StreamToMe. StreamToMe is an app that allows you to stream music, photos and videos from your Mac or PC over WiFi and 3G. Nothing special there except that this version has the option to use AirPlay which requires iOS 4.3 to function.

Microsoft planning attack on iPad

Microsoft has started it's war against Apple's iPad, handing their reseller partners material to show their customers pointing why the iPad is not the solution they should be using for their enterprise needs. Distributed starting around December of last year, the material lists reasons why people should either move away from the iPad for enterprise needs or why they should not go towards the iPad in the first place.

First look: Dead Space for iPhone, Dead Space HD for iPad

First look: Dead Space for iPhone, Dead Space HD for iPad

Dead Space from Electronic Arts is set to hit the US iTunes App Store sometime later today in both iPhone and iPad versions. TiPb got a sneak preview so let's just give you the goods right now. If you couldn't guess from the title it's a space survival/horror shooter with absolutely gorgeous graphics and even better sound and atmosphere. The mood is just perfect and transitions from casual, almost monotonous getting-to-know-the-controls early missions to OMFG-what's-eating-my-face action with heart-stopping abruptness.

Controls are about as good as can be expected for a mulitouch device though I did once in a while have trouble picking something up as opposed to shooting. If you're familiar with other first-person shooters on iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad you'll feel right at home.

Dead Space isn't on rails; you walk where you want to walk, blast what you want to blast. You do have a guidance mechanism to show you the way, however, which minimizes the frustration of truly open environments.

Like I mentioned at the beginning, it's not a universal app so you can buy it just for iPhone/iPod touch (and framed on iPad) or you can buy Dead Space HD for the big screen iPad experience. (When you do buy Dead Space for iPhone or iPad and register the game, you'll get a special unlock for Dead Space 2 for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.)

Unfortunately, like most other separate iPhone/iPad games, there's no way to sync progress between platforms so if you get pretty far on the iPhone on the bus, you probably won't want to switch to the iPad and keep going on the sofa. Pity.

Overall Dead Space reaffirms that we've just entered the next great generation of iOS gaming. It looks great, it sounds great, and it's a ton of fun.

Video up top and screen shots after the break. If you check it out, let us know what you think.

Apple opens @AppStore Twitter account

Apple has opened the twitter account @AppStore and posted the following first tweet:

Welcome to App Store on Twitter! Follow us to discover new apps, get exclusive offers, and share with friends. #appstore

It'll be interesting to see what Apple does with this account, particularly with exclusive offers. The iTunes Twitter accounts are currently used to announce new releases and sales, so we will likely see something similar. There has been a second tweet from @AppStore promoting Nike Training Club.

Motivation. Full-body workouts. On-demand instruction. It’s all available on Nike Training Club. http://tw.appstore.com/4zo #appstore
