It is very normal for Apple’s big mobile operating system updates to have a few glitches to work out and iOS 7 is no different. Users have complained of motion sickness caused by the flying animations, security breaches were corrected within a day, and now some are posting comments on Apple forums that iMessage is acting funny.

Welcome back to the latest installment of our weekly do-it-yourself project spotlight. Crafts and projects relating to the iPad are some of our favorite inspirations. Each week, we look for ideas that are easy enough for you to do at home. Last week, we showed you an iPad case made out of a funky placemat.
This week, we have tracked down a variation on the $5 Wooden iPad Dock. One of the biggest differences between these two projects is the price.
We used our PadGadget Apps Tracker to find these great deals and we’ll continue to look for the best app deals as they pop-up. Some of these apps are up to 80% off, a couple are even free, so be sure to check them out because they are on sale for a limited time.
In an unusual twist of events, the L.A. Times is reporting today that the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) is taking back iPads from students and staff at some of the schools designated early adopters of the Apple tablet program.
The LAUSD has been dealing with some issues lately with missing tablets and a widespread student hacking job. However, this new action was apparently unforeseen by staff interviewed by the LA Times.
Samsung recently announced the upcoming launch of its newest model of tablet, the 2014 edition of the Galaxy Note 10.1. Although it is a big improvement over last year’s model, word on the street is that future tablet buyers should wait for the next iPad to come out.
Reviews of the new Note 10.1 are filing in across the Web. Most agree that this year’s Samsung tablet it better than its predecessor with a new outer shell, improved display screen, and lighter weight. However, many tech writers agree that the performance of the 2014 edition is just not up to par with the likes of the ipad.
As of yesterday, for the first time ever, Apple is selling refurbished 128GB iPads from its online store. Now, instead of dropping $800 on the biggest storage capacity iPad, you can own a “gently used” one for significantly less.
Apple regularly offers discounts on refurbished products. This is the first time we’ve seen the 128GB model in the refurbished section of the store. Originally priced at $799, you can now get the largest storage capacity model Wi-Fi only iPad for $679. That is 15 percent off of the full priced tablet.
I use the Paper app all the time because I like its drawing tools and its simplicity. It was only a matter of time before Paper creator 53 evolved their successful app to a new level, especially now that it has been downloaded millions of times. Instead of adding new tools or changing the layout, Paper now has a book feature which allows you to order a printed copy from Moleskine.
Apple has finally broken into the Chinese market, but it comes at a hefty price, literally. In China, the cost of even the cheapest model of iPhone is hundreds of dollars more expensive than in the US. To help reduce the cost to send iOS devices to the Mainland, Foxconn has offered to help out by selling directly China.
According to DigiTimes, Foxconn Electronics will help Apple sell products in China by shipping directly from its plant in Zhengzhou to the domestic market.
“Since China has already become a major market for the IT industry, Apple has been aggressively trying to expand its presence in the country. But Apple needs support, and it is expected to rely on Foxconn to help it provide logistic and after-sale maintenance services in China.”
