Element Case debuts Joule stand for iPad

Element Case is looking meld stylish form with elegant function for their new hand-crafted, solid aluminum Joule stand for the iPad.

It'll work for either portrait or landscape (photo frame or movie watching), and comes in either polished metal or anodized black. You can even get your own custom coating and laser-etched logo.

Joule would normally set you back $129 but the kind folks at Element Case are offering the first 100 TiPb readers who place an order a cool $30 off -- just enter coupon code PRS2J4 at checkout and it's yours for $99.

Check it out and let us know what you think!

Apple uses AdLib JaveScript framework to make richer web apps for iPad

Apple uses AdLib JaveScript framework to make richer web apps for iPad

Done21.com has discovered something interesting in the online iPad user-guide: a new JavaScript framework they've dubbed AdLib (after its filename) that allows for very native app look and feel in the decidedly web-based app.

AppleInsider notes that it appears to be related to the PastryKit framework used for the iPhone user-guide (which stands to reason), and the TuneKit framework used for iTunes LP and iTunes Extra. And that the name may tie-in to the iAd rumors, and to internal efforts on Apple's part to raise the bar of web apps and diminish the need for plugins like Flash and Java.

Could we find out more at Apple's iPhone 4.0 event tomorrow? We certainly hope so. As much as some decry the closed nature of the App Store, developing for Safari is wide open and a new class of better, faster, stronger web apps is ultimately good for everyone.

Video after the break!

Loopt for iPhone gets interesting... in real time!

Loopt for iPhone gets interesting... in real time!

Loopt has not only launched a new iPad app this week, Loopt Pulse [Free - iTunes link], but now a new version of their iPhone app as well [Free - iTunes link].

What's the big difference? How about the ability to easily find interesting people, places, and events with just your iPhone and Loopt's map screen. Yawing in the middle of a droning conversation, eyes drooping at a lame party, not sure where to go in the center of sleepy-town USA? Loopt's full-scale assault one boredom just might have your back.

There's also a new version for BlackBerry, if you find that interesting.

What will we get in iPhone 4.0?

What will we get in iPhone 4.0?

Tomorrow at 10pm PT, 1pm ET, Steve Jobs puts sneaker to stage and, along with SVP of iPhone software, Scott Forstall, gives us a sneak preview of the highly anticipated iPhone 4.0. No one outside Apple knows exactly what new features and paradigms iPhone 4.0 will offer. However, tradition demands we make our best guesses and ask you to do the same.

This isn't what we want, mind you. We told Apple what we want back on December 25, 2009: multitasking, better notifications, widgets for the home screen, instant access to important settings, themes, gestures like pervasive pull-down-to-refresh, system-wide "back" implementation, orientation lock, and resolution independence, along with a ton of great reader suggestions in the comments. We've also asked for a Finder app, like the Photo but to store document files.

This is what we think we'll actually get, given the rumors and the direction Apple looks to be going. This is us, TiPb staff and TiPb readers reading the tea leaves...

Will the iPad blend?

Will the iPad blend?

Yeah, so the iPad does eBooks, movies and apps but what we all really want to know is -- Will it Blend! (iPad smoothy anyone?)

The process is pretty straight forward. Get iPad, place in blender, push button, and see the magic happen. Amusing way to get out your iPad overload frustrations, or do you worry about harmful fumes and the general wastefulness of the project? Video after the break!
