Real World Test of the iPad Battery, As Well As a Comparison

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 09:30 AM

http://www.tuaw.com/2012/03/19/new-...good-as-ipad-2/

"CNET reporter Eric Franklin spent his weekend torture-testing the battery of the new iPad, the iPad 2 and the Android-powered Asus Transformer Prime. He took each device, charged it fully and then drained its juice by continually playing a move. All these tests were conducted in airplane mode so WiFi, 4G or LTE connectivity would not affect these results."

What he found was that the iPad 2 lasted 14.2 hours, the new iPad lasted 12.8 hours and the Asus lasted 9.6 hours. The Asus did last 15.3 hours when tied to an external keyboard dock that had it's own battery, but why wouldn't it with extra juice right? You can read his report here.

iPad 3, or is it iPad HD? What Else Will Happen Tomorrow?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 10:11 AM

"As I've argued before, there's a good chance the third-gen iPad will be called the "iPad HD." The rumored tablet is expected to feature a pixel-packed Retina display as its flagship feature, and the "HD" suffix could help differentiate it as a newer, higher-quality device."

This does make sense, since something similar happened with the iPhone 4, but the only sure thing is that there is a lot of conjecture about what exactly will happen tomorrow. Apple TV refresh? Also makes sense due to the supply shortages of this wonderful little device. How about an iPad mini? Not so sure about that one, at least for this event. And a new one for today is the interesting hint from Verizon about "Something Big" coming. LTE perhaps? The one rumor that I really hope comes true is a redesigned cover for the latest iPad. I never really liked the smart cover due to the lack of back coverage, but the supposed new cover provides the protection. Whatever is announced, I'm just hoping I'm able to get an upgrade for my iPad original, since polls are showing 74% of current iPad 2 owners are planning on upgrading. What are your thoughts on what will be announced tomorrow?

Get Some Cash for That iPad

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 11:00 AM

"In anticipation of the announcement of an updated iPad from Apple next Wednesday, some iPad owners are already generating quick cash from their older models."

Seems appropriate to post this now that the new iPad is "supposedly" going to be announced on March 7th doesn't it? I have an original iPad that I'm thinking of selling so I read this article with interest, and I'm glad I did since it appears I'm going to be able to get $170 USD for it based on the info I provided here. That will take a big chunk of the damage for the new iPad I'm guessing. There are other options listed in the article as well, so if you are considering selling, it's worth reading.

Apple Event Confirmed for March 7th

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 01:30 PM

http://arstechnica.com/apple/news/2...tm_campaign=rss

"Apple has begun to send out invitations for a special media event on Wednesday, March 7 at 10am PST. The event will take place at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, where both the original iPad and iPad 2 were announced in 2010 and 2011, respectively. The company did not specify what this year's event will be about, but given the invitation pictured above below, it's a near given that Apple will unveil the next-generation iPad."

Rumors confirmed, and from the looks of the not so discreet invite, this must have something to do with an iPad yes? But what else could they be announcing? Could it be a new Apple TV like this article says? I have no idea but I certainly like what this announcement has done to the stock price!
