When you’re gluten free, the holiday season can be a minefield of potential disaster. So much focus is placed on food, and when a lot of that food is off limits it can get really stressful. It gets even worse if you’re not familiar with the diet and attempting to accommodate a gluten-free guest! Here are some great resources on the iPad to help you navigate the season with ease.

Vers Inc. has announced the new 2Q hand-crafted wood Bluetooth stereo, offering natural acoustic sound quality in a portable package that fits in the palm of your hand.
The wood cabinet-style housing is designed to offer warmer, more natural sound and an eco-friendly look.
According to an Apple source, they have begun testing iOS 6.0.1 with its carrier partners in the U.S. in preparation for a release in a few weeks. The update reportedly will address some of the issues users have been experiencing with the new software.
iOS 6.0.1 should fix both the horizontal flickering lines bug on the keyboard in portrait mode reported by some iPhone 5 users and the issue with the camera flash not going off consistently. No mention of the purple halo issue with the iPhone 5 was made, however, so apparently Apple is still claiming that particular issue is due to how users are framing their photos.
One analyst believes that the rumored new iPad Mini may actually cause the iPad 2 to get phased out of Apple’s product line entirely in an effort to preserve their overall vision for streamlined, clearly defined product tiers.
Rob Cihra with Evercore Partners said that the iPad 2, which dropped to $399 retail after the release of the new iPad, will likely be removed from the lineup as the iPad Mini joins the ranks to provide a more affordable entry level price into the iPad lineup. Phasing out the iPad 2 could potentially drive higher unit sales of the iPad Mini.
According to industry analyst estimates, the upcoming iPad Mini is expected to cannibalize sales of the full-size iPad by 20 percent, assuming the projected November 2 release date is true.
Analyst Gene Munster with Piper Jaffray believes Apple will sell 25 million iPads during the 4th quarter, and 5 million of those units will be iPad Minis. He had previously forecast sales of 21 million units total before the iPad Mini announcement, so his new estimate lowers the full-size iPad sales number by 1 million units.
It was originally reported that Apple was possibly planning to hold an event to announce the new iPad Mini on October 17th, but the latest rumors leaked by people familiar with Apple’s plans now suggest that the event is scheduled for October 23rd.
As usual, it will be an invitation-only event, and invites will likely be sent out early next week. The location is unconfirmed, but it is expected to be held at the Apple’s Town Hall auditorium at its headquarters in Cupertino, California.
Today a Chinese company introduced the first-ever fully functional cloned Lightning cable, proving that it is possible to knock off Apple’s new connector. It even goes a step beyond Apple by adding a funky glowing feature and providing a dock.
The Flash Lightning Dock is capable of charging and syncing an iPhone 5 or new iPod to a Mac or Windows PC, just like Apple’s cable, and it can be used either independently or with the dock. When docked, the iPhone is displayed at an 8-degree angle, perfect for video chatting.
According to an analyst at Barclays, manufacturers may be preparing to build over 10 million units of the upcoming iPad mini during the fourth quarter of 2012 alone, indicating that Apple is expecting a high demand for their more budget-friendly iPad over the holiday season.
Most of them are expected to be produced by Foxconn, a veteran Apple manufacturer. Pegatron is also reportedly contracted to produce 3 million units.
