You can hollow out an old iBook and hack together a new Apple keyboard into a frankenstein iPad keyboard, or you can just buy a Clamcase.
The iPad is missing pretty much any and all ports for connecting stuff to it, which is why Apple sells an expensive dongle to stick a USB port at the bottom. But why settle for just a USB port when you can add a couple of memory card slots as well?
Some of the coolest apps for iPads and iPhones turn them into virtual musical instruments like keyboards and guitars, so it was only a matter of time before someone put together an orchestra with a bunch of Apple instruments playing together.
Apple's iPad ain't cheap, especially if you went for a 3G model with a sizable hard drive. So you want to keep it nice and protected, right? Well, if you like iPad security and you also like puns, you'll love the iPadLock.
The iPad already has an impressive 10+ hours of battery life (general estimate, actual battery mileage will vary) — making it the quintessential tablet of the year. How can it get any better? Why, with a bigger battery that doubles its life.
"So," the question invariably begins when I whip out the Samsung Galaxy Tab (hereafter to be referred to as the gTab), "is it better than the iPad?" "Better," however, is the wrong adjective when addressing the inevitable and ultimately false equivalency between the two. Why a false equivalency? Aren't they both tablet PCs? gTab fits in your pocket. iPad doesn't. So choosing between the two really comes down to a question of posture and location. More after the jump.
One area where 3D seems ready to take off is in the handheld and portable space. Whereas current, mass-market 3D TVs require you don those wearisome glasses, portable units only need to worry about a single viewer and can skip the specs. Now, one company wants to deliver 3D to the iPad and make it as simple as possible.
If you've been trying to decide between an iPad and a cute litte notebook, the Crux360 case may be just the thing to make those discussions moot.
Although some companies have been slow to pick up on the public's love affair with the Apple iPhone and iPad, Muji (Japan's version of Ikea) is taking advantage of the hype by rolling out an entire suite of apps for the devices.
The rumors are starting to fly about a 2nd generation iPad. And one of the things almost everyone assumes will be included is the first up on the rumor shelf: a front-facing camera.
