You’ve gotta love the Chinese knock-off market: After one company’s attempt to threaten Apple with stealing their tablet idea for the iPad failed, they turned right around and ripped off Cupertino instead.
Almost as soon as the iPad was shown in Steve Jobs’ hands back in late January, speculation ran rampant about whether or not some of the stock iPhone applications were missing in action, or simply consolidated into some kind of secret “widget mode.”
While it’s widely known that Apple makes most of its money from hardware, one analyst predicts that the various content sold on the forthcoming iPad will equal nearly 30 percent of what Cupertino makes on the device by 2011.
Amazon’s top dogs are likely having some sleepless nights following Apple’s iPad introduction in late January, with a new survey showing that one in four current e-reader owners would have purchased an iPad instead.
We know spring doesn't officially start for another two weeks, but the way the weather and the sun have been playing with our minds lately, it feels like it might really happen on schedule. Of course, if we know winter, there's always at least one more trick up its sleeve. But this weather! It almost makes us not want to be inside playing with our tech toys.
So load up these links on your iPhone and get stepping out like us, because it's another sunshiney week of the best of the best from Mac|Life.
The folks over at Kotaku have really
stumbled upon a gem. Twelve shots of the first game made
specifically for the iPad have been released. The game is called Zen
Bound 2, and the publishing company is regarding it as a "sequel and a
revision" of the original iPhone game. The game will include tons of
new levels, more music and graphics that will exhibit the iPad's
capabilities as a gaming platform.
