Apple Stores to have additional antennas to improve reception for Verizon iPhone launch

Apple Stores to have additional antennas to improve reception for Verizon iPhone launch

Following the Verizon iPhone announcement in January it looks like Apple and Verizon surveyed Apple Retail Store to determine which ones needed additional antennas installed to improve Verizon reception.

Not huge news considering big buildings like malls can play havoc with reception and extra antennas are typically used to provide better reception in many of them. It is nice to know Apple and Verizon are doing everything possible to make the launch go as smoothly as possible.

Just remember, it isn't the signal strength at a store you should be paying attention to, but the signal strength at home, at work, at school, and at any other location you frequent. If in doubt ask colleagues, friends, and anyone else using Verizon (or AT&T) in those areas what their reception is like.

Full letter after the break. Pre-orders start tomorrow!

iPad 2 display emerges from China?

iPad 2 display emerges from China?

It looks like our good friends over at 9 To 5 Mac and iFixYouri have managed to get their hands on what might just be an iPad 2 display fresh from the assembly lines in China. According to them, the display is lighter as well as just over a 1 mm thinner than the current generation iPad display. The frame around the screen is also noticeably smaller as well.This seems to make sense as all of Apple's products have been getting smaller and thinner recently, and reducing the iPad's weight would be a huge plus.

The part number (LP097X02-SLN1) appears to be an LG Phillips 9.7in XGA 1024×768 H-IPS display, which is the same resolution as the current iPad. This matches up with theories that it's still too expensive to go to a 2x 2048x1536 Retina Display this year, and it's a non-starter for developers to go 1.5x or anything in between.

Check out some candid shots of both displays after the break and let us know -- would you be happy with this display in iPad 2?

How can Apple and News Corp get me to subscribe to The Daily?

How can Apple and News Corp get me to subscribe to The Daily?

Tomorrow Apple and News Corp will unveil The Daily and an iPhone/iPad subscription service for iOS to go along with it -- but will I subscribe? We've been discussing that for a few weeks now on the iPad Live! podcast and it's led to some of the most heated exchanges Chad, Georgia, and I have ever had on the show (and that's saying something.)

The issue is this -- news is already freely available on the web from both the largest profession news sites and the smallest one-person micro-blogger alike. Everything from full on features in the most traditional of old media fashion to real-time tweet streams of breaking news are there for the browsing.
