Apple Secures iPad Trademark

Apple has secured the trademark for "iPad" from Fujitsu. Though details are non-existant, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) shows the name changed hands on March 17.

Steve Jobs and Eric Schmidt Take Coffee, Talk Shop

Gizmodo has just posted up some candids of Apple CEO Steve Jobs, and Google CEO Eric Schmidt taking tasty beverages together and talking shop at the Calafia in the Town and Country, Pal Alto, which is owned by former Google chef Charlie Ayers. Reportedly Jobs was overheard saying:

  • "They're going to see it all eventually so who cares how they get it."
  • "Let's go discuss this somewhere more private."

What the "it" and the "this" are precisely, we don't know. Could this be the first tender, fragile steps towards reconciliation? Was the public setting intentional?

How Much Will You Pay for iPad Apps?

How much will you pay for iPad apps? Steve Jobs said the iPad was a new category between the iPhone and the laptop, so will iPad software be a new category between the two as well?

PC software for Windows or Mac can range from free to well over a thousand dollars for a suite -- looking at you Adobe CS5 -- or more. iPhone apps on the other hand have raced to the bottom, with free being common and cheap being the biggest alternative. Most apps hover around $0.99. Only a few apps dare go over $5, let along $10 or more.

Google Paying Carriers to Go Android, Apple Still Charging for iPhone

Well technically Google seems to be sharing revenue generated from services like Search, Gmail, Maps, etc. with their carrier and manufacturing partners to incentivize their "going Android". If rumors of Apple making a cool $100,000,000 a year from Google for iPhone search are any indicator, the money may be nothing to sneeze at either.

Geohot Teases Untethered Jailbreak for iPhone... and iPad!

Geohot, the original iPhone hacker, has just posted a huge tease for the must-sought-after iPhone 3.0.x untethered Jailbreak:

The jailbreak is all software based, and is as simple to use as blackra1n. It is completely untethered, works on all current tethered models [iPod touch G2, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch G3], and will probably work on iPad too.

Don't ask when it will be available, however. Just expect it when you see it.

Apple Begins [Pre-Charging] iPad Orders for April 3?

Reader Paul tells Apple charged his credit card today for his iPad order, placed on the very first day of availability. We asked on Twitter and it looks like he wasn't alone.

Typically companies only begin processing order charges when they start shipping products. Does this mean the first set of iPad have commenced their journey from manufacturing for an April 3 delivery?

Did your card get processed? Wi-fi only or 3G as well?
