Apple preparing iPad 3 for September?

Apple preparing iPad 3 for September?

Could Apple be preparing to surprise consumers -- and the growing competition -- with a Retina Display packing iPad 3 at this September's traditional iPod event? Daring Fireball's John Gruber is guessing they might while TechCrunch is saying they're hearing it's on the table. DF:

How could Apple release a third-generation iPad just six months or so after the second one? Maybe it won’t be an actual next generation model. Maybe it’s more like an iPad 2.5, or iPad 2 Pro — a new higher-end model that sits atop the iPad product family, not a replacement for the iPad 2 models (which, of course, haven’t even been released yet).

HP (not Palm!) announces Veer, Pre3, webOS 3.0 TouchPad

HP (not Palm!) announces Veer, Pre3, webOS 3.0 TouchPad

HP held their Something Beyond event today where they announced the new, tiny Veer, the beefed up Pre 3, and their iPad competitors, the TouchPad. (And I'll note with sadness it was HP, and no longer Palm that announced them.)

The Veer replaces the Pixi as the mainstream fashion phone, only now it packs the Pre slider form factor shrunk down to credit-card size (don't call it MiniPre!). I'll miss the iconic front-facing QWERTY that made the Treo famous but for slider fans there's a lot -- read: a little -- to like here. Check out PreCentral.net's Veer hands on for more.

The Pre 3 is the Pre on Hulk serum. Bigger screen and far more powerful internals. If HP can nail the build-quality they could realize every dream original Pre-users have had. I'd have liked a slab form factor here, but I have an iPhone so HP is at least sticking to Palm's guns on hardware keyboards. Check out PreCentral.net's Pre3 hands on for more.

The TouchPad is HP's answer to the iPad, with identical display size but quadruple the RAM, a front-facing camera, and webOS 3.0 which really shines on the big screen. The UI doesn't scale automagically (it was unrealistic to think it would) but HP has moved some controls to the top, made notifications into a hybrid drop down, and cards and stacks just look gorgeous on a tablet. Check out PreCentral.net's HP TouchPad hands on for more.

mophie juicepak air for iPhone 4 - battery charger review

The mophie juicepak air for iPhone 4 is a lighter charging solution for highly mobile users. If you need to keep going but want the minimum of bulk to slow your down -- if you need a case that can give your 70% of a charge at just about 70% of the size and slightly less cost than a juicepak plus, then here's your solution. To see how it held up for me under the rigors of CES 2011, read on for the review after the break!

Last.fm will soon require subscription to stream to iPhone

Beginning February 15, Last.fm will require a subscription to stream music to your iPhone and it will be ad-free. Here's what Last.fm's VP of production, blog Matthew Hawn had to say:

On the Last.fm website an ad-supported, free-to-listeners model is what supports our online radio services in the US, UK and Germany. In other markets and on emerging mobile and home entertainment devices, it is not practical for us to deliver an ad supported radio experience, but instead, we will migrate to what we believe is the highest quality, lowest cost ad-free music service in the world.
