Just cant decide between the 11-Inch or 13-inch MacBook Air? The Apple site actually gives a really nice comparison between the 2 systems. I personally picked up the 13-inch… ; )
It’s about time! Apple has approved the new VLC player app and it is ready to rock on the iPad. Now you can play Xvid, Divx, WMV, M4V, and lots of other movies formats right on your iPad.
Turning your iPhone into a WiFi Hotspot is simple if you have a jail-broken iPhone. Your first FREE option is by PDANet. Unfortunately the FREE version gives you only HTTP however normally that’s ok. The Paid version gives you everything. The second option is MyWi. There is no Free version but for $9.99 1 time only, your iPhone will be a free Wifi Hotspot.
Android is simple and Free: Goto settings, Wireless & networks, Portable wifi hotspot.
Overall looking over the list of features, the iPad really looks groovy.
One thing is for sure however… apparently none of the Apple execs out there are fans of MadTV because if they were, they might have been aware of a VERY funny video specifically called the “iPad”. One of our groovyReaders ShockerSH already spun up a forum thread doing just that. Here’s the Video he posted from MadTV
Can’t really think of any editorial comments that need to accompany that. 😉
According to a recent article from BusinessWeek, Apple and Microsoft are in negotiations. Current rumors have it that these talks are focused on replacing Google with Bing as the default search provider for all iPhones and Safari desktop applications.
Currently there are only two iPhone search provider options; Google, and Yahoo. Yahoo leaves much to be desired, and Google is great.. except it’s at odds with Apple. Google is getting too close for comfort with their new Nexus One phone, Google Voice applications, and Latitude GPS. Apple has already made that clear by rejecting nearly every Google app for the iPhone AppStore.
Whether the deal works out or not depends on brand identity and mutual gain, but I for one hope that Bing will make it as at least an alternative.
