Everyone expected a comic app for the iPad, and Marvel delivered. Marvel Comics for iPad is a lot like iTunes, combining a comic book store and a reader into one app. The reader allows for page-by-page as well as frame-by-frame scrolling, and there are thumbnails at the bottom that let users skip to any page.
For any writer of tech, April 1 is a day of reckoning. This is the day when you never know if that cool item you see on another site or online is real or if it’s a fake put there to be believable enough to trick consumers into trying to buy and writers into covering it.
Thanks to the guys over a MacRumors, we now know a way to figure out a way to determine what iPad apps are on the horizon for launch day next week.
According to this screenshot, some of the games we can look forward to getting all fingerprinty over on April 3rd include: Flight Control HD, Labyrinth 2 HD, and Sparkle HD and Cro-Mag Rally.
I don’t know what is funnier. The actual name of the iPad or this Photoshopped image of another theoretical iPad box. When I saw this image, I had to find out more about it.
This is a great win for Photoshop and an epic fail for the iPad.
After the whole iPad naming fiasco, we all knew that it wouldn’t take long for some more maxi-pad humor to come our way. Here it is: the iMaxi, the apple iPad case with maxi wings!
A lot of women, including my wife, were thinking that there couldn’t have been single woman on the iPad naming-team.
Even though the iPad was just announced, there are already plenty of concepts emerging that could take advantage of the device. This one is somewhat interesting, but dubious. It’s basically a huge display made from a bunch of refurbished/recycled iPads.
Technabob pal Metin Seven of Sevens Heaven just tipped us off tho his hilarious original illustration that pretty much sums up all the hype (and disappointment) about the Apple iPad in a single image.
I’d like to see you guys try and fit this thing in your pocket.
I was checking out the App Store to see if anyone had already been releasing updates for their applications to take advantage of the larger screen on the new Apple iPad, and much to my surprise, I found this:
Apparently, a company called Groove Systems has been selling an application in the App Store called “iPad” since sometime back in late 2009.
Apple today took the wraps off of their much-hyped iPad tablet computing device. As predicted, the iPad works sort of like exactly like an iPhone on steroids, and is focused on media consumption, entertainment and educational usage.
Softpedia‘s Filip Truta stumbled upon a gold mine of Apple Tablet info, the gold mine being Jason Calacanis’ Twitter posts about the overhyped gadget. Calacanis – co-founder of Weblogs, a network of blogs that includes the famous tech blog engadget – admitted to the world that he is one of the beta testers of the Apple Tablet; he says his unit was given to him 10 days ago.
So with Apple’s impending release announcement of the iPad/iSlate/iTablet – whatever it’s called, I thought I’d take a gamble on what I think are the highest likelihood features, specs and pricing we’ll see from Apple later today.
Quick! Get yourself a Great Touchspectations shirt before Apple confiscates them! It has all of the Apple Tablet’s features, lifted directly from Steve Jobs’ mind by a psychic with a Mental Amplifier Helmet!
It’s a shame that I only saw this shirt today, a few hours before the actual tablet will be revealed (or not).
From Pocket-lint‘s secret Apple “sauce” comes a couple of stolen snapshots of the Apple Tablet. It has four screens, four home buttons, four 3.5-mm headphone jacks, four speakers, and an 8-in touchscreen. 8-inch overall anyway.
The compartmentalized touchscreen will allow users to make and receive a total of four calls simultaneously, take Lomo-like pictures using the four cameras.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last month, tech geeks all around the world have been speculating salivating about the impending announcement of a Apple’s tablet computer, currently rumored to be called the iTablet (I’ve also heard it could be called the MacBook Touch or the iPAD).
