A few years ago, rumors began to swirl that Apple was working on a smaller screened tablet. At the time, I scoffed at the possibility. Apple wouldn’t dream of making a small iPad. According to former CEO Steve Jobs, a 7-inch screen would be “dead on arrival” because no one would want it. Jobs was wrong about consumer desire and I was wrong about Apple.
This year, the rumors are beginning to swirl that Apple is working on a larger screened tablet. As the year draws to a close, more bits of information is leaking out and it is causing me to rethink my initial opinion that an iPad “maxi” would be silly because it is nothing more than a MacBook without the keyboard.
Shortly after Apple announced the new iPhone 5s, chipmaker Qualcomm’s senior vice president and chief marketing officer Anand Chandrasekher told TechWorld that the device’s 64-bit A7 processor was nothing more than a marketing gimmick.
The company quickly back out of Chandrasekher’s statement and sent him to the proverbial basement. As reported by HubSpot, it is more likely that Chandrasekher, as well as the rest of the tech world, was just trying to downplay Apple’s super fast processor chip because he was worried about how it would affect the market.
I was watching the Voice finals on TV last night and I saw a very cute commercial that starts with a family visiting grandma and grandpa. A young boy seems to be playing on his phone the entire time but it turns out he is making a video of everything going on. It climaxes with him showing the family the final video, which is a surprise to them and by the end everyone is crying. I expected the product tag at the end to showcase Chromecast or some other mobile product but was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be an Apple commercial.
As we inch closer to the big gift-giving day, it is important to remember that a good old-fashioned DIY project shows your friends that you love them just as much, if not more than, a brand new shiny object. Each week, we try to find creative and unique projects that you can make at home for your iPad. Last week, we found a simple pattern for a sleeve that will make your iPad look cool, motorcycle gang cool.
This week, we found a project on Instructables that is pretty much a do-it-yourself version of IK Multimedia’s iKlip mic stand iPad holder.
This year was a very good year for apps and games. We saw fantastic titles, like Fetch, Makr, and Dropchord receive the week’s spotlight for Editor’s Choice. Plus, game companies produced sequels, prequels, and spinoffs of their most popular titles. Today, Apple announced the winners of its annual “App Store Best Of” list and we have a rundown of the top iPad app winners for 2013.
If you are still looking for gift ideas for a new iPad mini owner in your life, Moshi has a great looking sleeve that doubles as a stand. So, you can protect your device with a slim, unobtrusive cover and you don’t have to stuff it in your bag while using your iPad mini.

From visiting PadGadget, you may have noticed that, sometimes, advertisement space seems to directly reflect your recent Internet activity. For example, if you were just looking at socks on Amazon, you may see an ad in the sidebar for socks on sale on Amazon. This type of advertising is called real-time bidding (RTB) and it is used to better target visitors to a website and increase interest in the advertisement.
Google has been offering a service, called AdSense, to publishers on the Google Network that allows for interactive media advertisements based on RTB. According to a recent article from AdWeek, Apple is in the process of doing the same. The focus in 2014 will be on iTunes Radio.
