New Year's resolution: be nicer to Google in 2011

My New Year's resolution for TiPb is to be nicer to Google in 2011. Last year was an amazing year for the world's largest, most powerful internet company. Thanks to relentless software improvement, Verizon's Droid marketing, and top-of-the-line hardware like the Galaxy S, Google's Android OS became the fastest accelerating platform in the mobile space. They also unleashed improvements to Gmail, Google Maps, Google Docs, YouTube, and so many other already excellent services at a speed and quality level that, frankly, no other company could have matched.

What would you like to see more of (or less of) on TiPb.com in 2011? iOS news/rumors? Jailbreak coverage? Editorials/opinion pieces? iPhone/iPad vs. competing device reviews? App/game/accessory reviews? App/game/accessory comparisons? Tips/how-tos/guides? iPhone Live!/iPad Live!?, TiPb TV? Anything we're not covering that you really want us to start?

Facepad for iPad may be just what Facebook users are looking for

Facepad for iPad may be just what Facebook users are looking for

Facepad for iPad is a a brand new Facebook application that just recently hit the app store. It may be the Facebook app most iPad users have been longing for. Facebook has made it apparent they don't think an iPad specific app is necessary. I strongly disagree. Browsing Facebook through Safari isn't painful but how do I upload photos or videos? I can't. Apps like Friendly for Facebook step in to fill this gap but they aren't perfect.

Facepad is definitely a step in the right direction but it still leaves room for improvement. As of now there isn't currently a way to upload photos and video. Friendly for Facebook does offer this. The reason I say I think this app may be the one iPad users are drawn to is the interface. It's absolutely gorgeous. It reminds me a lot of a default iOS app or Twitter for iPad.

For a 1.0 release, you can already tell it has potential. I did experience a bug when viewing photos. Sometimes while scrolling through pictures, the photo window would just disappear and I'd have to reload it. Hopefully this will be something that's fixed in an update. I'm excited to see what the developers can do with this app. Facebook hasn't been too great at supporting their own native iPhone app so I'm definitely willing to see if someone else can do better. What about you guys? What features would you like to see implemented in an update?

Hit the jump for a couple more images!

iPad 2 will ship with... which version of iOS?

iPad 2 will ship with... which version of iOS?

Apple is widely expected to introduce iPad 2 sometime in the next few months and, if they follow the same yearly cycle they have for iPhone and iPod touch, ship it in April 2011 running iOS... what exactly? iOS 4.2 still? A new iOS 4.3? Last year iPad was unveiled running iOS 3.2 (then called iPhone OS 3.2). iPhone was running iOS 3.1, and iOS 3.2 looked similar yet at the same time as fresh and new as iPad itself. The same only bigger and in some ways, better. Background wallpaper and home screen rotation alone were enough to make it look new, as were sidebars in landscape and popovers in portrait mode.

Then iPhone got iOS 4 in June, not only closing the gap but with multitasking, folders, threaded email, and other new features, surpassing the iPad, which stayed trapped on iOS 3.2 until November, when iOS 4.2 finally unified the product line. If Apple sticks to pattern iOS 5 will be previewed around the same time as iPad 2 but won't launch until iPhone 5 does in June, 2011. So it seems like there are a three major options:
