App Store down?

App Store down?

<img src="/sites/imore.com/files/styles/400w400h/public/images/stories/2011/01/Screen-shot-2011-01-22-at-9.20.20-AM.png" alt="App Store down?" title=App Store down?" width="400" height="224" class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-53608" />

We're getting a lot of reports from readers that they can't connect to the iTunes App Store from either their Mac or Windows PCs, or iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. Some readers are saying they can connect, however, so while it's down for a lot of people, it may not be down for everyone.

Let us know either way!

UPDATED: Controversy over the Apple approved 'Anti-Gay app'

Exodus International recently launched an app that has the general public and LGBT community in an uproar. The app basically contains a lot of the same information Exodus International has on their website. They focus on individuals who want help dealing with unwanted same-sex attraction. I know many churches and organizations that like to have apps so their members can have easy access to their content.

iPad 2 competition heats up: BlackBerry PlayBook, new Samsung Galaxy Tabs get priced

iPad 2 competition heats up: BlackBerry PlayBook, new Samsung Galaxy Tabs get priced

Just as Apple brings us iPad 2, RIM finally reveals pricing and release information for the BlackBerry PlayBook and Samsung unveils new designs and lower price points for a couple of new Galaxy Tabs.

The 7-inch PlayBook Wi-Fi, which is available for order now from retailers like BestBuy and will be in stores on April 19, matches the iPad 2's storage and price points with 16GB, 32GB or 64GB at $499, $599 and $699. Do the features make the smaller size worth the same price? (And does the BlackBerry logo on the bezel annoy you as much as it does Rene?)

The Android Honeycomb Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wi-Fi, which is actually going to be cheaper than the iPad 2 at 16GB and 32GB for $469 and $569, and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi, which is the same price at 16GB and 32GB for $499 and $599. Oh, and both are thinner than the iPad 2 at only 8.6mm (Oh yes, it's on!)

Interestingly, Samsung is one of Apple's largest manufacturing partners. Now that they're competing so directly with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, could we see Apple try to separate themselves the way they did with Google after the Android launch, or is Samsung too big and too important for Apple to even think about cutting the cord?

Galaxy Tab video after the break. Watch it and let us know what you think, has the competition caught up faster than Apple expected, or are they still bringing specs to an experience fight?

More iPhone 5 metal back, 4-inch screen, NFC rumors

More iPhone 5 metal back, 4-inch screen, NFC rumors

Adding more -- if decidedly similar -- fuel to iPhone 5 rumor fire, China Times is reporting that trial production has begun on the device, and that it does indeed have a 4-inch screen, metal back/chassis, NFC (near field communications), and perhaps an improved antenna and dual GSM/CDMA support. All this packed into pretty much the same form factor as iPhone 4.

They claim, however, it will only ramp up production in Q3, 2011 (July to September) which would be later than Apple's typical summer release schedule.

Original iPad can use the Smart Cover, with a little work [video]

Original iPad can use the Smart Cover, with a little work [video]

If you are hanging onto your original iPad but really want one of the new Smart Covers for iPad 2, now you can. Dan Provost has discovered that by simply super gluing a few small magnets to the side of your iPad 1, the case fits and works very nicely.

The video after the break shows how it is done and although it does sound a little rough and ready, the final result is actually quite neat. If you decide to remove the case in the future, you’re still going to be literally stuck with the magnets on the side of your iPad, so be aware before you try this for yourself.

Folding of the cover to allow the iPad to stand up looks a little precarious but in the raised typing wedge mode it looks fine. The one missing feature, is the iPad does not automatically turn on and off when opening and closing the cover.

Is anyone willing to give this a go? Let us know in the comments!
