Last year, news of Apple’s iBeacon technology began to hit the street. With iOS 7, the iPad maker included the ability for third-party tech companies to make devices that would connect wirelessly to iOS devices from localized transmitters. The transmitters work using Bluetooth LE (low energy) to conserve energy. It can be used in retail stores to offer discounts to shoppers, large-indoor complexes to track your whereabouts inside, and baseball stadiums to beam relevant information directly to you. Today, Major League Baseball (MLB) announced that two of its ballparks are fully equipped with iBeacon technology and are ready for Opening Day.
We’ve heard it before. On any given day, someone claims to have insider information that Microsoft is working on a full-featured version of its Office suite for the iPad. Just when we thought Microsoft would throw iOS users a bone, they came out with their own line of tablets, mobile Office installed, instead. The company even launched Office 365 last June, but only for iPhone users. Today, ZDnet claims to have some insider information that Office for iPad is, indeed, coming this year. We’ll see.

Before you have a heart attack, Hitman GO is not the same as Hitman. Instead of the stealth game that has become a fan favorite for the past decade, this version is very different, but also very exciting. Now that you’ve calmed down, we can continue with the news.
In 2011, Apple presented the world with a thinner, faster tablet. It was definitely an improvement on the premier model in terms of performance. However, three years and Retina display technology later, the second-generation iPad seems more like a slow, heavy, retro computer than an advanced piece of machinery. Still, Apple makes it available to purchase if you don’t want to spend the money on the newer model.
I love arcade shooter games. The entire Raiden series keeps me glued to my iPad for hours at a time. Flying over planets, shooting everything in sight reminds me of standing in front of an arcade cabinet in the suburbs as the sun was going down, trying to milk my last quarter for as long as possible. Classic games are much easier on the back when you can play them on the iPad. Like Dungeon Keeper. We spotlighted that reimagined game for the iPad for the previous installment of Flashback Friday.
