First Lady of the United States tweets first on iPhone

During the White House Correspondents Association Dinner, First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama sent out her first tweet, via CNN's Ed Henry. After light-hearted negotiations and getting clearance from the top -- the very tip top -- Henry typed the tweet out on his iPhone on Mrs. Obama's behalf:

"from flotus: 'here at dinner this is officially my first Tweet. i am looking forward to some good laughs from the potus and jay'".

How to cram twice as much music onto your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad

How to cram twice as much music onto your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad

Apple's iTunes News has posted up a helpful tip on how to use the new automatic 128 kpps downsampling function in iTunes to squeeze double the music (if lower quality) onto your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.

Audiophiles will no doubt rather scratch their ears out than listen to anything that highly compressed, but if your ears are more greedy than golden, the 128 kbps downsampling might just be for you.

You can find it when you plug your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad into iTunes over USB, on the general screen that comes up. (See screenshot, above). Here are the extra-geeky details:

So which iPad did you get and why?

Apple has now fully released the iPad, both iPad Wi-Fi and iPad 3G + Wi-Fi in the US, and have announced 1 million sold, and I'd like to know -- which iPad did you get?

Tell me in the poll below then drop a comment and tell me why you chose the iPad model you did, and whether you're happy with your choice or wish you'd gone for something else. (If you bought the iPad Wi-Fi only and are now selling it on eBay to get the 3G, tell us that too).

Poll after the break.

Apple announces 1 million iPads sold

Apple announces 1 million iPads sold

Apple has just announced sales of 1 million iPads since the US debut on April 3, along with 12 million app downloads from the iTunes App Store and 1.5 million ebook downloads from the iBookstore. Apple's CEO, Steve Jobs, is happy:

“One million iPads in 28 days—that’s less than half of the 74 days it took to achieve this milestone with iPhone. Demand continues to exceed supply and we’re working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more customers.”

Apple's iPad Wi-Fi + 3G debuted on April 30 and unofficial tallies have its sales of those SKUs at 300,000.

An amazing debut by any standards, but will growth match that of the iPhone?

Quick Review: Pages for iPad

Quick Review: Pages for iPad

Having a virtually full-fledged word processor like Apple's Pages iWork app [$9.99- iTunes Link] on the iPad is a big deal. There has been a lot of discussion, however, about how Pages would work on the iPad. How do I transfer/ sync documents? How will my formatting be effected?

I had to use Pages to do some document editing for a house flyer for our home (we are in the process of selling). I figured what a great opportunity to give Pages a spin. First, I had to get the document on the iPad. Email or iTunes? The Pages file was 12MB so I opted to transfer it via iTunes. The process was simple; I selected the Pages app from the bottom of the Apps tab with my iPad attached to my iMac. I clicked the add files button and chose my Pages file. I synced the iPad and my house flyer appeared in the document list in pages.

After importing the house flyer into Pages, I was not greeted with any formatting warnings (to be fair I have imported Microsoft Word documents and did receive warnings. It was hit and miss; some documents looked identical, others, not so much) and I began editing immediately. But, there was one problem...

Department of Justice, Federal Trade Commission jostling over inquiry into Apple restriction on cross-compilers

Citing the usual "people familiar with the matter", the New York Post claims the Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commissions are negotiating over which one of their organizations will inquire into Apple's new iPhone OS 4 SDK section 3.3.1 -- the restriction against cross-compilers in general and Adobe's Flash CS5 Packager for iPhone in specific.

Spirit untethered Jailbreak for iPad 3.2, iPod touch, iPhone 3.12, 3.13 now live

Spirit untethered Jailbreak for iPad 3.2, iPod touch, iPhone 3.12, 3.13 now live

Spirit, an untethered jailbreak for iPad 3.2, and iPod touch and iPhone under 3.1.2 and 3.1.3 is now live. If you want it, go grab it via the link below.

A word of warning for iPad users:

On iPad, all this is still sort of beta. Some packages in Cydia, not designed for iPad, might screw up your system and require you to restore. Be careful. (And no, Cydia's appearance is not final.)

Also, not an unlock solution. This is a jailbreak.

As always, if you don't know what any of these means, stay away.
