Once called a hobby, the Apple TV is now selling out in many Apple retail store locations across the country. Because of this, at least one research analyst is predicting sales of 1 million units per quarter, which is one-third the sales of the iPad.
Even though the new Apple TV is a streaming-only device, you can still rent and watch TV shows and movies right from within iTunes. But, as MacRumors points out, Apple may not have thought this whole streaming-only plan out thoroughly because you can now rent shows and movies without abiding by the 24-hour rental policy that is standard in iTunes rentals.
We know that not everyone has a selection of strip malls or Apple Stores to choose from, and that's why we were excited to hear that Walmart will probably pick up the iPad for sale, allegedly by the end of the year.
If Apple’s competitors need a reminder of what an uphill struggle they face trying to dethrone the iPad, look no further than some new figures from analysts showing that the iPad is being adopted by buyers faster than many other popular consumer electronics, including the DVD player.
There's utilitarian and then there's stylish, and then there's something perfectly in between. Timbuk2's Scuba Sleeve for iPad belongs smack dab in the middle of this spectrum. We might sound slightly biased because the design of this case features the perpendicular slope of San Francisco's bustling Market Street, but don't let that fool you into thinking that this sleeve doesn't have other notable qualities.
The iSkin Vu is incredibly hard to put on. Once we actually put on the case, we really didn't want to have to bother with taking it off. But that's all right, because the case was so sturdy, we had no problem "accidentally" dropping the device on the floor (as we did a couple of times during Labor Day weekend…oops) because we knew it was well protected.
