This year, it seems like “last minute deals” have dragged on longer than ever. Not only have retail stores been dropping the price of Apple products like they are old stock, but now some are offering discounted iTunes Gift Cards to make you holiday savings even better.
Last week, Australia’s International Business Times reported that Apple was working on a 12.9-inch tablet that would combine the capabilities of the Macbook Air and the MacBook Pro.

There was quite a bit of excitement over the weekend concerning the newly released untethered jailbreak from evad3rs. Simply stated, you can jailbreak your iOS 7 device but there are a lot of users who are upset by the inclusion of an unofficial version of Cydia in evasi0n7 and an app store called Taig, which provides access to cracked apps. The whole story is becoming clear and it doesn’t seem as bad as it did at first.
Apple has been wooing China for some time now. CEO Tim Cook has been spotted making the rounds throughout the year in the world’s most populated country. The reason Apple wants to buddy up with the birthplace of most of its mobile devices is that the world’s largest mobile carrier, China Mobile, has 760 million customers. Until now, Apple has not been able to make an agreement with China Mobile.
Christmas is only a couple of days away and there is a very good chance that many consumers will be introduced to the iOS ecosystem for the first time through the iPad. Last Christmas, my sister-in-law got her first Apple tablet and I was happy to help her figure out how to setup her account, download apps, and set certain important features on her new device. This year, I’m happy to share it with the rest of the world.
This week, we have a list of things you should do after you’ve opened your box and started playing with your iPad. Don’t worry, the tablet will already have a charge, so you won’t even have to wait to get started.

Those who want to add a little comfort to their downtime may want to consider the GoGo Pillow. Th GoGo Pillow is just what it sounds like: a throw pillow that fits nicely on your couch but is begging to be taken outside and on-the-go. But its main draw is that it securely holds most tablets, regardless of size–iPad included.
The GoGo Pillow seems best fit for when you’re reclining in bed or on the couch, trying to find a comfortable angle to hold your iPad. Whether you put it on your lap while in bed or sandwiched between yourself and the arm of a chair, the GoGo Pillow’s shape allows it to stand free of a flat surface, and does so with some nice added comfort.
As the years go by and more people use their iPad for a wider variety of activities, it becomes more obvious that consumers have different needs when it comes to holding their tablets. Some people use it to video chat with family over FaceTime. Others want it to be perpendicular to the floor for tabletop activities like digital drumming. Watching movies in bed needs its own angle.
Mobile radio services are all the rage right now and SoundHound is helping bridge the gap between the music around you and Apple’s iTunes Radio. I love the concept of SoundHound because it allows you to discover the names of songs and artists that you hear on the radio or while walking around a store, or at someone’s party, or even something you sing. Now after you discover an artist, you can press a single button to switch to iTunes Radio on a related station.
