TiPb TV 2: Should you get an iPad for the holidays or wait for iPad 2?

Should you buy and iPad now for the holidays or should you wait until early next year for iPad 2? That's an important question as gift giving season is upon us, and it's the topic for the second episode of our new, conversational video podcast, TiPb TV.

Rene and I discuss when we think iPad 2 will come out, what extra features it might have, if iPad 1 will stick around at a reduced price, and what value you'll get out of the current iPad for the next few months while you wait.

It's instant gratification vs. more later with a dose of Android Galaxy Tab and BlackBerry Playbook thrown in for good measure. So if you've been trying to decide between getting an iPad now -- for yourself or for that special someone -- or waiting for a -- maybe FaceTime equipped -- iPad 2 next year, check out TiPb TV and we'll help you make the best choice possible.

European Carriers Not Happy about Apple's Proposed Built-In SIM

European carriers are reportedly warning Apple that if Apple goes ahead with plans for custom, built-in SIM cards for future generations of the iPhone. the carriers may refuse to subsidise the iPhone altogether.

Free version of MobileMe coming with iOS 4.2 for iPhone, iPad?

MacRumors scores yet more evidence Apple might just be considering adding a free level of MobileMe service for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad owners on iOS 4.2.

The evidence comes in the form of a new private framework known as AppleAccounts.framework that includes a series of device-specific error messages referring to free MobileMe accounts. In particular, the error messages include alerts regarding having reached "the maximum number of free accounts" for a given device and certain devices not being "qualified for free MobileMe service".

Apple

Interested in how Apple is advertising iAds to advertisers? Well they've got a brand new highlight video up on Apple.com that'll give you a good idea. The emotion of TV. The interactivity of digital. The power of Mobility. Indeed.
