After the Samsung Galaxy S4 launched two weeks ago, Apple debuted a new iPhone page on its website that read: “There’s iPhone. And then there’s everything else,” designed to list all of the reasons why people love the company’s iPhones. Today Apple followed that up with a page touting all of the selling points of its tablets.
The new page, entitled “Why You’ll Love an iPad,” opens with the following statement: “iPad and iPad mini. They’re two of no other kind.” The page that follows is full of the highlights of Apple’s best selling tablets.
Welcome back to PadGadget’s weekly music column. We have some resident musicians on staff who love talking about music related apps and accessories. Last week, we had a hands-on review of IK Multimedia’s iLine Cables. What a great way to have all your audio connections in one place.
This week, we have found an iPad mount that is specifically designed for use with a microphone stand. Castiv’s TAB STATION is a musician’s best friend in a pinch.
When rumors come down the pipeline from parts manufacturers its time to start listening. Last year, there was a whole lot of buzz about a new, smaller sized tablet from Apple that I didn’t believe for a minute. That is, until word started coming in from the supply chain that the iPad mini was in production.
We’ve been hearing rumors and analyst predictions about when Apple will launch the second-generation iPad mini for month now. Since April is nearly upon us and there hasn’t even been an invitation to a special event in a certain independent theater, it appears that DigiTimes’ newest rumor is more likely to be true, especially since it claims to come from the supply chain.
King Oddball is a fairly basic physics based puzzle game. If you’ve played a game like Angry Birds, you will be able to jump right in, because it’s essentially the same concept: use a projectile to destroy targets.
The King is a giant rock with a crazy long tongue, which you can use to hurl smaller rocks and boulders at a range of targets. The game incorporates simple one-touch controls, so you need to combine proper timing with a tap on the screen in order to squash enemies like tanks and helicopters.
The Energi Backpack is latest offering from gadget gurus TYLT, who turned to Kickstarter to bring multifunction backpack to market.

According to the Shanghai Daily, Apple lawyers will be heading to court once again, after being sued by a Chinese company that claims the Cupertino-based company copied parts of Siri’s speech recognition software.
Shanghai-based company Zhi zhen Network Technology Co. says that Apple has infringed on a patent it owns related to voice recognition technology. Zhi Zhen claims that it patented its “Xiaoi Robot” software in 2004, while Apple began development on Siri in 2007.
Since it debuted on our iPads in September of 2012 with the launch of iOS 6, Apple’s native Maps app has been nothing but trouble for the company, and for some unassuming users. Apple has been working hard to make it better by adding more flyover features, getting advice from other geo-social developers, and other such investments. The one thing the company didn’t seem to be working on was the one thing that made the Maps app such a failure. Locations are wrong.
