Poll: Are you going to jailbreak your iPad 2?

Poll: Are you going to jailbreak your iPad 2?

The iPad 2 Jailbreak is finally here, courtesy of JailbreakMe.com, but will you use it? iOS 4.3 is solid and iOS 5 is just around the corner with Notification Center, iMessages, and more. So is the need to Jailbreak still compelling?

I'm still on the fence myself, so help me make up my mind before iPad Live this Sunday. If you're going to Jailbreak, let me know and tell me why. If not, same deal.

Amazon ups the ante on Cloud Music, adds iPad support

Amazon ups the ante on Cloud Music, adds iPad support

Amazon announces Cloud Music. Apple announces iCloud. Apple shows that iCloud is better than Amazon Cloud. Amazon announces some major Cloud Music escalation, including Cloud Player for web getting iPad support, unlimited storage for music, and free storage for all Amazon-purchased MP3s. Yeah.

"Customers are already enjoying Cloud Drive and Cloud Player and now for just $20 a year, customers can get unlimited space for music," said Craig Pape Director of Amazon Music. "Additionally, we are adding free storage for all MP3s purchased from Amazon MP3, and support for the iPad. Our customers love Cloud Drive and Cloud Player and we're excited to innovate these services on their behalf."

It's the iPad part that interests us the most, of course.

Could iPhone 5 land on Sprint as well this year?

Could iPhone 5 land on Sprint as well this year?

Shing Yin, a Citadel Securities analyst, thinks a Sprint iPhone deal may not be that far off, perhaps as soon as this year, which would likely mean a CDMA iPhone 5. After Verizon finally shipped the iPhone 4, we found out T-Mobile might be getting one, either on their own or as part of the ongoing T-Mobile and AT&T merger. That leaves Sprint sitting alone in the corner.

iPad 2 Plus coming later this year with a better display?

iPad 2 Plus coming later this year with a better display?

If FBR Capital Markets analyst Craig Berger is correct, in lieu of the much-rumored [http://www.imore.com/tag/ipad-3) we may see another iteration of the iPad 2 this year, complete with a beefed up display. According to Berger, Apple is currently shopping around for quotes from manufacturers in China. The current iPad 2 sports 132 pixels per inch. The iPad 2 Plus will supposedly increase the pixel density to around 250 to 300 pixels per inch. (Though, as we've said repeatedly, Apple will have to pixel-double it exactly, the same way they did with iPhone 4, if they don't want to cause headaches for developers.)

Learn programming basics with Coders for iPad

Learn programming basics with Coders for iPad

Michal Bencur, has released his computer programming iPad app, Coders. If you've ever wondered what all that code does in the background of all your gadgets, you may want to check it out. It's an extremely simple coding app with an easy to understand interface. There are a few sample programs built in for you to poke around and you can also create your own. Coders is based on the Lua programming language, which is a pretty easy language to learn.

  • Tutorial on how to get started
  • Lua programming language
  • You can write code that draws on screen: points, lines, change colors...
  • work with text, take input from user, write things out

This app isn't meant for hardcore developers, nor should you expect to learn how to code iPhone and iPad apps. This app is mainly geared towards beginners that want to learn to understand the very basics of programming. Developers still may enjoy it even if it's just to jot down quick notes while they're on the go. And if all else fails, I had a lot of fun just creating little programs purely for entertainment.

Coders is currently priced at $4.99 in the App Store. Screenshots after the break.

iPad, iPhone enabling employees to surf porn at work?

Are the iPhone and iPad letting employees sneak a peek at porn while on the job? Recently, Harris interactive was commissioned by video surveillance company Qumu to survey 2,500 employees and ask them, "what do you search on your mobile device at work that you cannot do, or are afraid to do, from your work computer?" These are some of their top responses:

  1. Look for another primary job
  2. Watch pornography
  3. Visit an online dating website
  4. Research an STD

Harris also asked how employees sneaked a peek at their mobile devices while at work, and the most popular answers were:

Apple preparing to ship thinner, lighter iPhone 5?

It's not the wink-wink, nudge-nudge controlled leak we've come to expect from The Wall Street Journal, but according to their supply chain sources "familiar with the situation", iPhone 5 might indeed have a new casing:

According to some suppliers of components to Apple, the new version of the iPhone is expected to be thinner and lighter than the iPhone 4 and sport an 8-megapixel camera. One person said the new iPhone will operate on Qualcomm Inc.'s wireless baseband chips.
