iPad Impressions from People Who've Actually Used It

Like many things Apple, the iPad launch has galvanized those who believe it's the "next big thing" from those who believe it's the "latest stink" -- but what about those who, you know, have actually spent time using the thing, and now had a chance to ponder it a bit?

Sure, some are no doubt Apple enthusiasts easily impressed, while others are jaded journalists almost impossible to impress. For a mix of both, follow on after the break.

Apple iPad UI -- The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Sebastiaan de With of Cocoia has posted another of his UI roundups, this time focusing on Apple's evolution of the iPhone interface in the form of the brand new iPad.

He notes the expanded icon size of 72x72, and as-yet-unused 64 and 320 versions, along with more "earthy" metaphors, and since he designed the one for Classics, weighs in on the very similar looking iBooks.

AT&T Releases Two More Anti-Verizon Ads -- Secret Switch and Share AT&T

AT&T Releases Two More Anti-Verizon Ads -- Secret Switch and Share AT&T

The battle of TV attack ads between AT&T and Verizon continues on as AT&T has just released two more commercials taking aim at Big Red.

In the first commercial, named "Secret Switch", Luke Wilson is at a dinner party and he secretly switches the attendee's AT&T smartphones for Verizon devices. Once they realize they've been bamboozled by tricky Luke and are using "dumb phones" all hell seems to break lose. Notice the Motorola Droid highlighted when they mention "dumb phones"?

There's no mention of the iPhone specifically (Apple doesn't share screen time), but one diner does complain that all her apps are gone...

The other commercial is titled "Share AT&T" and this time Luke concentrates on educating the viewers about how AT&T provides a better overall 3G experience than Verizon. Some of the key points he touches on are the faster speeds for downloading songs and videos, and the ability to talk and surf at the same time, etc...

Check out the videos after the break, and let us know what you think about them!

3.1 Million iPhone's Activated -- AT&T Q4 2009 Results

3.1 Million iPhone's Activated -- AT&T Q4 2009 Results

Hot on the heels of Apple's explosive Q1 2010 results come AT&T's Q4 2009 financials, and once again the iPhone helped its exclusive US carrier paint a rosy picture that includes 3.1 million new activations.

AT&T's fourth-quarter integrated-device growth included 3.1 million iPhone activations, the second highest quarterly total to date, with more than a third of the activations for customers who were new to AT&T. The average ARPU for integrated devices on AT&T's network continues to be 1.8 times that of the company's nonintegrated-device base.

ARPU (average revenue per user), as Dieter keeps telling us, is the magic number for AT&T, and despite complaints about service in cities like New York and San Francisco, iPhone users continue to use -- and pay for -- a lot of data.
