About Time! 'This American Life' Finally Goes iPad

Not to make gross generalizations, but it is pretty amazing that 'This American Life,' the NPR talk show hosted by hip geek Ira Glass, took this long to get to the iPad. NPR and iPads should have an intrinsic relationship, like Volkswagens and Macs, Starbucks and the New York Times. Once again, these are broad assumptions, but the Cult of Mac's reputation as NPR-listening, Toms-wearing folk isn't...

For Chinese Festival, Even Paper iPad 2s are in Short Supply

During the Qingming festival (also known as Ancestor Day or Tomb-Sweeping Day), Chinese communities burn effigies of money and luxury items to honor their ancestors. This year, iPad 2 replicas are among the popular items that people are purchasing to offer to their deceased relatives. But, like its real-life counterpart, paper iPad 2s are in short supply. Reuters spoke to Jeffrey Te, a...

Time Warner Removes TV Channels From iPad App, Appeases Media Companies

Time Warner Cable has pulled a handful of TV channels from its iPad app after receiving complaints from three media companies. The app, released earlier this month, allows users to choose from over 30 channels streamed directly to their iPads. Yesterday, however, Time Warner suddenly removed several of the channels (including MTV and FX), after Viacom, Discovery Communications and the News...

Can the iPad 2 Double as a Hot Plate?

The iPad has not yet become another Apple-built IED. But, according to one El Paso, Texas man, the tablet has a serious overheating problem. Former firefighter Hector Camacho (not the boxer) claims he was severely burned by his iPad 2 while trying to unplug it from its charger. We don't know... sounds like a built-in feature to us. Browse the Web and keep your coffee hot!...

Condition ONE Makes War Footage Immersive and Interactive

Despite unceasing conflict around the globe, war journalism has fallen on hard times. In the words of award-winning war correspondent Danfung Dennis, the art of photojournalism is "dying." Dennis has created a new system, called Condition ONE, which he hopes will breathe new life into wartime videography by creating an immersive and interactive experience. There are several parts to the...

Sorry, Fellows: The iPad 2 Marriage Proposal Has Been Done

A fellow drops on one knee, hands a girl an iPad 2 with a wedding proposal engraved on the back, and the rest is history. After all, you know what they say: diamonds may be forever, but fresh-off-the-assembly-line iPads are a girl's best friend. They do say that, don't they? This latest techy proposal may not be as rollicking as that iPhone one, or as supremely nerdy as the Pokemon question,...

Barack Obama Has a Computer and an iPad, Because He's the President

As President of the United States, Barack Obama gets to enjoy some pretty sweet perks. Big house, private jet, personal chef -- and yes, his very own computer. He has an iPad, too, in case you were wondering. Univision's Jorge Ramos posed these hard-hitting questions during a recent interview with the President, who replied with a blank stare, before coolly reminding Ramos that he's the...

IMDB App Update to Bring 'Watchlist,' Ticket Purchasing to iPhone, iPad

IMDB will release a major update to its app for iPhone and iPad today, designed to allow users to follow a movie's development from start to finish. With the update, users will be able to receive news on films and TV shows from the moment they're greenlit and up until the second they're produced via updates from IMDB. Selected projects can be added to a user's 'Watchlist,' which will display...

iPad Gets Overpriced Companion Apps for Classic Albums

Here's an interesting push by the music industry. Universal Music Group has started selling iPad app versions of classic albums, including Nirvana's 'Nevermind,' Rush's '2112' and 'Moving Pictures,' and 'Ladies and Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones' by the Beatles Rolling Stones. The apps are billed as "interactive, socially aware, and Internet connected," and include video interviews, extensive...

All-In-One Gadget Stand for Apple Fanboys (and Girls)

Sorry, Apple fanatics -- it's just a prototype. But if Andrew Kim is as clever as this all-in-one iPad/iPhone/iPod stand suggests, you should be able to get your iLoving hands on it soon enough. The plastic on plywood PolyPly lets you snap your devices into place, and even leaves room to connect their cords. It's beautiful in its simplicity and matches Apple's minimal designs without just...

Apple Sells 1 Million iPads During Debut Weekend, Completing 1 Million Lives

Big news, you guys: Apple sold a lot of iPad 2s over the weekend. How many? Nearly a million. Granted, another big opening weekend may seem about as newsworthy as a sunrise, but take a second to chew on this: most analysts expected Apple to move only about 350,000 to 400,000 tablets. Instead, the company ended up selling about three times as many as it did last April, when it unveiled the first...

Dev Scores Cheap Publicity by Shelling Out $900 to Skip iPad 2 Line

We know the Mac faithful can be a little fanatical. But even we were a little shocked by Hazem Sayed, a 53-year-old developer who paid his way to the front of the line at the Apple store on 5th Avenue here in NYC. Sayed strolled up to the front of the line and paid a 20-year-old college student $900 (more than the cost of a top-of-the-line iPad) to give him his spot. That means, depending on...

Why You Should Think Twice About Buying an iPad 2

Today the iPad 2 goes on sale and, as with most iDevices, there will be a gaggle of geeks lined up outside your local Apple store to snatch it up. It's only a small evolutionary update to the original iPad, but there's no denying its intrigue. Yet even after reading all of the glowing reviews, I'm still not sold. There's no doubt that the iPad 2 is going to sell like hotcakes, but I won't be...

NY Fed Prez Angers Hungry Mob With iPad 2 Gaffe

We know that the iPad is a popular device, and the iPad 2 will only make it more popular. It's an important piece of pop culture! We get it. But here's a piece of advice: When trying to explain to a crowd of angry people that inflation isn't really that bad and that the economy is doing well, you probably shouldn't turn to a luxury item like the iPad 2 as your example of economic stability....

Kraftwerk App Automatically Creates Krautrock Masterpieces

'Kraftwerk - Kling Klang Machine - No1' is the clumsiest name for an iDevice app we've seen. And at $8.99, it's no bargain -- which is a shame, because it's so cool. The app automatically generates music while also letting you manipulate sounds and loops using a retro, green-on-black display, though that description hardly does it justice. It's no 'GarageBand,' but it'll keep you knee-deep in...
