Perhaps assuming that you picked up a new iPad, iPhone, Mac or iPod during their one-day Black Friday a few days ago (you did, didn't you?), Apple has posted some website-only deals on accessories for their computers and mobile devices on Cyber Monday.
This week on TechRadar, Orange and T-Mobile confirmed that they would be offering cheaper deals on iPad, as long as you take out a longer contract. Also, MySpace joined up with Facebook to take on Ping and first pictures appeared of the HTC Merge. Plus, of course, iOS 4.2 emerged.
At long last it arrived. Multitasking on the iPad showed up in iOS 4.2, and all we had to give up for it was the ease of the orientation lock button above the volume rocker. There were plenty more goodies too, and let's not forget other news about other Mac stuff, all of which was covered by the turkey (and tamale) stuffed gang at Mac|Life.
It seems that the tech journalism world didn’t take much of a Thanksgiving break this year, with a couple of reports detailing a recent Apple land grab from HP as well as rumors on the next iPad, MacBook Pro and Final Cut Pro updates.
Black Friday is finally here, and with it comes the hopes and dreams of retailers everywhere to turn a profit for the year. Apple Inc. doesn’t have to worry about that -- they’re already sitting on a mountain of cash -- but that doesn’t mean they can’t get into the spirit of the shopping season just the same.
As we all wait to see what kind of Black Friday deals Apple.com will post in the morning, resellers of the company’s products are already doing some deep discounting of their own in advance of Cupertino.
When Apple unleashed iOS 4.2 earlier this week, we were disappointed to see that full audio and video AirPlay support wasn't offered for third-party applications. With popular This, we're sure you'll agree, is a shame--especially with great applications like VLC, AirVideo and CineXPlayer screaming to make it off of iOS devices and on to a big screen. Fortunately, TUAW's Erika Sadun, whose genius is as constant as the North Star, was pretty bummed about this too. While the rest of us were busy sulking as we multitasked on our iPads, and moping with our new iPhone text tones, she got to work on finding out why only Apple apps had been invited to the AirPlay party, and what could be done about it.
A while back, Google thrilled users of their popular Google Docs suite of cloud-based productivity services by introducing the ability to drag and drop images into documents. The dropped images would immediately be uploaded to Google's servers, saving them as part of the active document and making it possible for any collaborators to see the image almost instantly. While this was a great addition to Google's already impressive functionality of their cloud-based office productivity suite, they've nonetheless opted to up the technological ante once again. This time around, Google has announced that they're bringing the same drag-and-drop functionality to other file types as well.
