Google stacks Gmail for iPad

Google stacks Gmail for iPad

Google continues to rapidly reincarnate their iPad Gmail web app, this time introducing Apple Mail-style stacks into the mix. Back when the iPad optimized version of Gmail was launched, Google emphasized their new code base would allow for just this kind of fast feature development, and now hot on the heels of the new compose screen, stacks will allow for easier grouping and organizing of mail. They also gave Google's team a chance to play with CSS transitions to try and get closer in look and feel to native apps.

iOS used by 100% of multi-platform developers on Millenial network

iOS used by 100% of multi-platform developers on Millenial network

Millennial Media's July Mobile Mix report shows that while iOS is still dominant, Android is coming on like a freight train. Millenial's stats are also one of the few ways to see what's trending outside the increasingly closed worlds of Google- and Apple-assimilated and controlled ad networks. Here's the breakdown:

  • iOS was the platform utilized 100% of the time by multi-platform developers on Millenial's network. Android was second with 75% and RIM in the third position with nearly half developing for their platform.
  • iOS remained the leading OS on our Millenial's network in July with a 55% share of impressions.
  • Apple ad requests are up 24% month-over-month, 15% since January.
  • iPad ad requests grew 327% month-over-month.
  • Android OS grew another 47% month-over-month. Since January, Android has grown 690%. Android also officially became the number two OS on the Millennial network (surpassing RIM)

Updated: Apple Store is down, start the speculation!

The Apple Online Store is down and while normally Wednesday night would trigger "it's just maintenance" mode in me, there are announced products still awaiting "go live" status like the white iPhone 4! Seriously, though, that's delayed until the end of the year but there's still the 27" LED display, and all sorts of rumors about new Apple TV/iTV and 7" iPads that it's worth taking the gamble on a post.

How to prevent your friends from checking you into Facebook Places

How to prevent your friends from checking you into Facebook Places

Facebook Places not only lets you "check in" to various locations (a la Foursquare or Gowalla) but it allows your friends to check you in as well, which could be a little creepy. Luckily for those of us who prefer to keep where we are private, our good friend Phil Nickinson from Android Central tells us how to "just. stop. it.":

Facebook 3.2 brings Places to iPhone

Facebook 3.2 brings Places to iPhone

Facebook's iPhone app has been updated to version 3.2 and, among other things, brings support for the new Places service that lets you see where your friends are and what location-based social activities they're up to. (At least in the US, when I tried it it said it wasn't yet available in my region.)

What else is new?

iPhone at Work: high school student

How does a high school student use his iPhone to get the job done and what iPhone apps help get him through his day? TiPb’s iPhone at work contest aims to bring you just such slices of the iPhone life. Here’s michaelchang516's answer and as a small token of thanks we’re sending him a $20 iTunes gift certificate. If you want to see your name up on the TiPb home page and get a gift certificate all your own, head on over to the TiPb iPhone Forum and share your story now!

I’m a high school student going into my Junior year in September in Taiwan. I’m also the president of our grade and also a leader at the local youth group. So I use my iPhone along with my Mac to do the tasks I have, and also have fun at the same time.

Talon Hard Shell Case for iPhone 4 - accessory review

Talon Hard Shell Case for iPhone 4 - accessory review

Talon Hard Shell Case adds some color and fun to your iPhone 4 for under $10!

If you don't like the mostly drab black and bumpers and cases Apple is giving away, the Talon Hard Shell Case for iPhone 4 is a great way to add a little color and fun for under $10. It isn't anything fancy -- you can't throw your phone into a wall and expect it not to break (I would never try that anyways) -- but when it comes down to a nice colorful case without shelling out over $30, this is it.

Read on for more detail!

Apple's latest iPad ad is... magically delicious!

Apple's latest iPad ad is... magically delicious!

Apple's latest iPad ad kicks up the apps and the verbiage, taking us through a delicious, current, learning, playful, literary, artful, friendly, productive, scientific, and -- you guessed it! -- magical journey. (Absent Peter Coyote this time.)

So while iPhone has left apps and headed back to feature-based (i.e. FaceTime-based) advertising, Apple is moving iPad firmly into the app space. Interesting.

iBooks is just one of the apps highlighted. Can you name them all?

iPad Chair by Elite Home Theater Seating now available

iPad Chair by Elite Home Theater Seating now available

Do you sometimes struggle trying to find the perfect iPad position when on the couch or sitting in your favorite chair? Elite Home Theater Seating has a solution for you - the iPad Chair!

With the Luxa2 H4 iPad holder firmly securing the remarkable device in its tight grasp with its 6 rubber pins, you can now wield the power of the iPad in total relaxation with both hands free. The holder slides into the existing cupholder of the Elite HTS chair, and can then swivel and pivot 360 degrees. In addition, the iPad can be rotated vertically or horizontally, and can even be positioned flat like a table. Like malleable modeling clay, a dynamic mechanical joint hinge holds any position, and delivers all the pivoting action.

On the surface, it seems the iPad chair is nothing more than a normal fancy chair with a special attachment for the cup holder that holds the iPad. This is not the case. The chair itself is designed to provide optimum comfort while using the iPad, specifically in the head rest, back, and arm rests. The only thing that would make this chair better, would be an extendable attachment so that the ipad could be positioned in front of the user for more comfortable typing. The current design is awesome for everything else.

Starting at $2495.00 per chair for the Standard Package, I won't be rushing to pick one up, but it's fun to dream, right? What about you? Are considering adding this piece of furniture to your entertainment room at home? If so, please invite me over for dinner!

Check out the video after the break!

[Elite Home Theater Seating, thanks Tracy for sending this in!]

HBO coming to iPad

HBO coming to iPad

Great news for HBO fans! In an interview with Mossberg, HBO Co-President Eric Kessler said that HBO subscribers will be seeing HBO Go on their iPad's soon.

In six months, HBO Go will be available to the channel’s paying subscribers at no additional cost through all major cable systems, on Apple Inc.’s iPad, on mobile devices and elsewhere.

In addition to this great news, Kessler also delivered the disappointing report that HBO and Netflix will likely not be making a deal, so don't expect to see HBO shows on Netflix for iPad anytime soon.
