PadGadget’s DIY Project Spotlight: Needle Felted iPad Cover for Valentine’s Day

DIY Needle Felt iPad Case 4With Valentine’s Day only a few weeks away, I thought that now might be a good time to get started with heart-themed iPad projects to get you in the mood. Last Valentine’s Day, I found the cutest iPad cupcake tutorial. I was hoping someone out there would improve on the concept with an iPad Air or mini food-related project. We’ll see. Last week’s DIY cutting board iPad stand project inspired me to spend some time in the kitchen this past weekend making Macarons. Let me just say that, it would have been way easier and less time consuming just to make the iPad stand instead.

This week’s project will put you in the mood for love. With a red heart and a purple sleeve, who wouldn’t love this adorable Valentine’s Day themed needle felted iPad cover?

New Apple TV with Apps and Gaming Features Could be Apple’s Next Big Thing

AppleTV2A lot of rumors have been trickling through the tech network lately. Less than a week ago, we heard that Apple TV would soon be supporting Bluetooth controllers. In the lead-up to Apple’s big iPhone 5s announcement, tech writers were speculating that the “One more thing” on Sept. 10 would be a fourth-generation set-top box. Today, Apple updated its online retail store with a special page dedicated to the Apple TV. Does that mean Apple is preparing for a big update later this year that will “wow” us?

Dark Sky Weather App Gets Beautiful iOS 7 Facelift

Dark

I am a weather app junkie. Perhaps it is because I live in Colorado and the weather is unpredictable and can change in an instant. There have been days when it was snowing in the morning, sunny by lunch, and raining as I went to sleep. I have tried to use a lot of different apps  but they either are beautiful and too simple or full of useful data and too cluttered. All of the apps I have found over the years can move over for my hands down new favorite called Dark Sky.

Apple Earnings Call Highlights, the Future of Mobile Payments

Yesterday, Apple held its quarterly earnings call for the first quarter of 2014. Thanks to the holiday shopping season, coupled with the redesigned iPad Air, the iPad mini with Retina, the iPhone 5s, and to a lesser degree, the iPhone 5c, Apple had a record-breaking quarter across the board. These conference calls are usually a bit telling. Even though the company’s executives try to keep mum about future products, they eventually let something slip that the rest of the world interprets. This call was nothing new.

Pssst, the NSA May be using Angry Birds to Spy on You

Angry Birds Star Wars II Main

I don’t understand why everyone is in such an uproar about the the NSA spying on us. If they track my personal data they are going to be terribly bored and will be able to verify that I have a pretty lame personal life. While I have nothing to hide, I feel I can understand why quite a few people feel threatened by what ‘big-brother’ might have in store if they are left unchecked. I certainly wouldn’t want my kids to be put in the path of danger because someone gained access to their data and I felt a little taste of this when reading an article published by theguardian.com.

Apple Sells All-Time Record 26 Million iPads in First Fiscal Quarter of 2014

Apple_Headquarters_in_CupertinoLast week, CNN Money released a report based on estimates from 47 amateur and professional analysts. At the time, the pros, who usually get it right, predicted Apple would come in at just over 24 million units sold, while the amateurs marked Apple with 26.6 million.  Today, Apple proved that having a healthy overestimate can pay off sometimes. The iPad maker reported selling 26 million tablets.
