Happy birthday iPad Wi-Fi!

Happy birthday iPad Wi-Fi!

One year ago today Apple released the original iPad Wi-Fi (the 3G version followed at the end of the month). A lot of us here at TiPb, staff and readers placed our online orders or lined up in person to bring one home and have been enjoying them ever since.

For nostalgia's sake, here's TiPb's original iPad launch day coverage, our original iPad review, and our iPad 6 months later retrospective. Whether you've had your iPad for a year now, got it at some point in between, waited for iPad 2, or are still waiting and trying to decide if iPad is for you, take a look back and then share your thoughts with us.

What do you think of iPad one year later?

Apple airs new iPad 2 commercial -- We Believe

Apple airs new iPad 2 commercial -- We Believe

Apple has released a new commercial for the iPad 2 called We Believe. In what feels like a sequel to the first iPad commercial, What is iPad?, it focuses on Apple's belief that "Technology Is Not Enough", and that you have to go beyond the technology (and specs!), to make the experience, more delightful (and dare we say it -- magical).

You can find the full advert after the break, and let us know what you think.

Magical

Magical

When Steve Jobs called the original iPad "magical", there was some collective eye-rolling and amusement in the technology community (even among some of the TiPb staff.) Now Steve Jobs is far from a silly man and Apple has one of the savviest marketing teams in the industry, so why did it feel like there was such a disconnect between the word "magic" and the iPad?

Probably the same reason the original iPad's success caught so many by surprise. No one, not analysts, not journalist, and I'm guessing not even Apple saw 15 million sold in 9 months, or lineups on launch day that skewed so far from the typical early geek adopter demo.

As many have said before, Apple knew they had something but they weren't quite sure what they had yet. iPad 2 made things a bit clearer. Some decried it as an incremental improvement, much as they decried the original iPad as a "just a big iPhone". Those are both true statements as far as they go but they miss the point because being a better iPad and being a bigger iPhone are the point.

9to5Mac's Seth Weintraub was watching the Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg interview Sony CEO, Sir Howard Stringer, when stringer let slip that cameras meant for Apple iPhone and iPad would be delayed to due the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.

Paraphrased: “Our best senor technology is built in one of the (tsunami) affected factories.  Those go to Apple for their iPhones…or iPads.  Isn’t that something?  They buy our best sensors from us?”

Will you switch from iTunes to Amazon?

Are you switching from iTunes to Amazon?online surveys

Now that Amazon has Cloud Drive and Cloud Player up and running alongside their music and movie service, anyone thinking about switching over from iTunes? Despite constant rumors Apple hasn't yet announced their own digital locker or cloud streaming service, perhaps because they're still trying to negotiate licenses with the record labels. Amazon did it without licenses. They also often have lower prices than iTunes, though iTunes still has the edge on ease of use.

Daily Tip: How to play music from Amazon's Cloud Player on your iPhone

When Amazon announced their Cloud Drive and Cloud Player music services earlier this week they didn't mention whether or not it would work on the iPhone, or any other iOS device for that matter. While there's no app (yet?) and the full site doesn't seem to want to work on Mobile Safari, playback works just fine on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch via Apple's built-in Quicktime X Player through Mobile Safari. Just hit the jump to find out how it's done!
