How to install an iPad in your car dashboard

Why would you want to install an iPad into your car dashboard? Maybe you're radio's LED is way too small, maybe you want to be the envy of all your friends and loved ones, maybe you just want to enjoy some multitouch entertainment on the go? Whatever your reason, this video is for you!

Doug Bernards (aka The Sound Man) goes through every step in order to turn a regular dashboard LED display into a megalithic iPad control station. It is incredible to watch and makes me ever so jealous.

How to use a Bluetooth keyboard with the iPad

It's remarkably simple to use a Bluetooth keyboard with the iPad. First, you just need to ensure that your keyboard supports HID mode, that's Human Interface Device Profile and is pretty much the closest thing to a universal Bluetooth keyboard interface out there these days.

Are you having Wi-Fi connection problems with your iPad?

Are you having Wi-Fi connection problems with your iPad?

Dieter mentioned this in the hardware section of our iPad review, but we've seen enough reports (and gotten enough email about it!) that we wanted to break it out and see how widespread a problem this may be for our readers:

Speaking of that aluminum casing, it blocks WiFi signals pretty effectively. To get around that, Apple placed the WiFi antenna behind the plastic Apple logo. While all reports indicate it’s a good antenna, I do find that I’m getting slightly worse reception on the iPad than I do on other devices.

iPad review

iPad review

iPad is Apple's attempt to define something between the smartphone and laptop, to give the masses silky-smooth software and multitouch glass all wrapped up in unibody aluminum and complete ecosystem control -- to make mainstream the computing appliance starting at just $499. To do this, to justify the iPad's existence, to make us buy a device too big for our pocket and too small for our server room, Steve Jobs said it had to do several things better than either of the categories so well established before: browsing, email, photos, video, music, games, and eBooks.

Given the companies and products that have tried and failed before it, that's audacious even for Apple. Especially for a first generation attempt. How close did they get? Did they get close at all?

Dieter goes hands-on with the iPad hardware and Rene dissects the iPad software after the break!

What do you see in the iPhone 4.0 event artwork?

What do you see in the iPhone 4.0 event artwork?

Apple's iPhone 4.0 sneak preview event invitation features the number four, though its shown in the corner, mostly cut off, identifiable only by its shadow.

The iPhone 2.0 event featured a road map apropos of the SDK introduction. The iPhone 3.0 event featured blueprints, perhaps a nod to the construction going on within the OS.

What then to make of iPhone 4.0's artwork? Dieter stared at it for a couple minutes to glean what he could and came up with this: the 4 is in the background. Shadows are typically in the background.

Are we reading too much into it? Are you reading something different? Share your best guesses in the comments!

Quick Review: Twitteriffic on iPad

Quick Review: Twitteriffic on iPad

Twitteriffic on the iPad is straight-up elegant and clean. Although it's not quite the powerhouse of Twitter mania that is Tweetdeck on iPad, it makes up for it by having a nicer and more intuitive layout.

In portrait mode, you get a large list of tweets, but the real excitement comes in landscape. Twitteriffic uses the now-familiar setup of a list of options on the left, the main window on the right. Your options are simple and straightfoward - viewing recent tweet, messages, direct messages, favorites, a search bar, and so on. I'm especially happy to see lists on the sidebar - that's a feature that's been lacking on many other Twitter clients. The app offers a $4.99 in-app purchase to enable multiple accounts and eliminating ads. Twitteriffic also does a great job with links - photos appear in a small pop-up and web-links appear in a large pop-up browser that's very usable. Tapping a profile brings up an iPhone-style pop-up that lets you browse that user's tweets.

I do sort of wish the lefthand bar was customizable - I'd rather see multiple accounts listed there rather than Twitter trends. You also can't change accounts on an active tweet you're writing - instead you have to back out of one account and into another.

Video and gallery after the break!
