With print media on the decline, many publishers were counting on tablets like the iPad to usher in a new era of interactive media, which would potentially save magazines from obsolescence and extinction.

iPad 2 Reviews Are In: Long Live the King

The first batch of iPad 2 reviews have landed. Predictably, most reviewers can't speak more highly of the latest Apple tablet. Then again, as Laptop Magazine's Mark Spoonauer points out, "Apple didn't need to do a lot to stay in the tablet lead." This isn't Apple playing catch-up or exploding into a new market; this the Cupertino crew simply treading water. And, if the reviews are to be...

Zite's 'Smart' Personalized iPad Magazine Lags on Launch

With SXSW less than a week away, everyone's racing to push out new apps and updates -- and inexplicably road tripping on a StartupBus -- to beat the rush in Austin.

Unlike iPad publications like The Daily or Sir Richard Branson's 'Project,' Zite mixes the...

Sorry, John McCain -- iPads Aren't Built in the Good Ol' USA

Sen. John McCain made a bit of a boo boo the other day on ABC's 'This Week.' Remarking on recent comments made by President Obama that America needs to increase its exports, McCain cited Apple as a good example American manufacturing.

It's no surprise that Apple wants to make sure its presence is felt as the Tablet Wars continue on through 2011.

Hacked and Hijacked! How to Save Data if Your Portable Device Is Stolen

Symptom: You reach into your pocket or bag, and, well, it's empty! Diagnosis: Beyond the understandable distress of losing a pricey smartphone, laptop or tablet PC, the real trauma is the sudden and unfettered access afforded to the slippery-fingered jerk who took it. The cost of a new laptop is meager compared to the personal and even financial havoc that a motivated thief can wreak...

The New Digital Delivery Room, 'Minecraft' Coming to iOS

Here are a few of the other noteworthy things we saw today on our never-ending journey through the wild, wild Web. Read: Texting While Birthing A sheet was draped in front of her, protecting the sterile field while shielding her eyes from the cutting below, none of which she could presumably feel, except for vague sensations.

8-Year-Old Girl Racks Up $1,400 Bill After Playing 'Smurfs' Village' iPad Game

What do you get when you give an iPad to an 8-year-old girl? A bunch of Smurfberries, and a $1,400 bill from iTunes. That's what Stephanie Kay received, after her daughter Madison spent her winter break playing the 'Smurfs' Village' game on her family's iPad. The second-grader from Maryland apparently wasn't aware that the Smurfberries she collected cost real money -- a detail that, according...

NFL Teams May Ditch Playbooks for Tablets

Giant paper playbooks may soon be a thing of the past in the NFL. Many teams, including the Dallas Cowboys, are considering jumping on the tablet bandwagon and leaving the piles of dead trees behind. Switching to a tablet like the iPad will certainly please the environmentally inclined, as a team can easily go through 5,000 pages of playbooks and review sheets per game. It could ultimately save...

Read This: Do iPad Magazines Take Too Long to Download?

This morning I decide to try a little experiment: I opened up my iPad, clicked on the little Wired icon and purchased the magazine's latest digital issue. After I agreed to fork over $4, it began downloading. For the next phase of the experiment, I grabbed my car keys, left my apartment and drove about 12 blocks to a local magazine store in Brooklyn, where I also purchased the latest issue of...
