31 Air2a

Apple announced the new iPad Air 2 yesterday and it is another large jump forward for tablet technology. It has all of the obvious improvements such as being thinner, more powerful, and having a better camera, none of which by themselves justify trading in your current iPad Air. The features which make this new product worth the investment, however, include specialty features such as Apple Touch and the new anti-glare screen coating.

iMac with Retina

There has been talk for a few years now that Apple was planning on updating its iMac line to support a Retina display screen.

As of today, you can order the new 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display starting at $2,499.

Apple showed off some features of the new display at yesterday’s media event. It looks amazing. The Retina 5K display has a 5120 X 2880 resolution screen for a total of 14.7 million pixels, which is four times as many pixels as the non-Retina 27-inch iMac.

PadGadget’s Flashback Friday: Inkognito

Inkognito 1

In 1988, Milton Bradley published a complex mystery game that requires players to find out who their masked partner is, get a message from them, and complete a secret spy mission. You can play Inkognito on your iPad with three artificial intelligent computer players so you don’t have to try to round up a party for board game night.

Inkognito is a mystery game of deduction that features a large map of Venice with a variety of locations marked on the map. Players have six different four different game markers, as well as a passport, at their disposal. Your passport reveals who your character is, what your “build” is (your size, tall, medium, short), what your shape is, and what your code is. This information will help you and your partner find each other.

OS X Yosemite Available Today, Your iPad and Mac are Connected

Yosemite and iOS 8 3

Back in June, when Apple first demonstrated the power of OS X Yosemite, I was floored. Not only does the new desktop operating system look amazing, but it also has incredible connectivity with iOS. You can send and receive text messages (not just to iMessage contacts), make phone calls using your computer as a speakerphone, and “handoff” programs from one device to another with one simple tap (or click). Today, Apple announced that OS X Yosemite is available for free in the Mac App Store on all macs from 2009 and newer.
