Hands-on with the Octa WhaleTale & Vacuum Dock

Octa WhaleTail and Vacuum Dock is a tablet holder that suctions to the back and contours the hand very nicely. To get the back to stick on the iPad all you have to do is put it on there, give it a few pumps and it's on there, and rather firmly. Releasing the holder is pretty simple (once you get the hang of it) -- pull up slightly on the two tabs and then push them in, and off it comes. Also included is the WhaleTail which hooks onto the back of the Vacuum Dock which allows the tablet to be propped up and it also doubles as a security measure for when you are carrying your tablet around so it doesn't just fall right out of your hands.

Check out our live hands on from CES 2012.

Consumers want the iPad over Kindle Fire for the holidays

In a new survey conducted by ChangeWave, consumers polled over which tablet they'll be purchasing this holiday season showed heavy demand for the Apple iPad over competing Android tablets and the Amazon Kindle Fire.

But while two-out-of-every-three future buyers plan on purchasing an Apple iPad (65%), for the first time since the launch of the original model, there is a double-digit contender for the number two spot. Better than one-in-five planned purchasers (22%) say they’ll buy a Kindle Fire.

President Obama got his iPad "a little bit early"... and directly from Steve Jobs

In an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, President Obama revealed some well placed connections managed to get him his iPad sooner than most.

"Steve Jobs actually gave it to me, a little bit early," the president said.

Obama used his early-access iPad to read newspapers that he previously read in print, along with skimming blog posts and other content on the tablet. He did mention, however, that he never comments on the blogs he reads because he has more important things to take care of.

Wouldn't it be cool if he hit TiPb while perusing the blogosphere?
