The Kensington Folio Trio is a full-featured mobile workstation, complete with built-in iPad stand, notepad holder, 3-ring binder for notes, folio for papers, card holders, pen loops, and iPad stylus loop. In theory, the Folio Trio is great—it holds everything you’d need for an office meeting, and keeps it nicely organized. It’s also sturdily constructed of faux-leather—which, if you’re an animal lover, you might appreciate, though most will probably expect real leather for the price.
Several attempts have been made to design a tiny keyboard for laptop-toting musicians. Generally, the results haven’t proven all that impressive: either the unit boasts too few keys, or the keys are too small for comfortable playing, or both. The iRig Keys aims to combat the former (and more musically compromising) complaint by shoehorning in three full octaves worth of keys, one more than the two-octave standard for this general form factor. As a result, of course, the unit ends up considerably larger than its most direct competitor; at about 20 inches long it’s small enough to fit in some backpacks and maybe large messenger bags, but only just.
There is little doubt that China is the next location for explosive growth for Apple, where in recent months fake stores have popped up on the radar to take advantage of the company’s popularity there.

Our privacy is increasingly at risk on the internet, but this week it turns out we may have yet another location to worry about: Our very pockets. As it turns out, 3G-equipped iPhones and iPads have been tracking our movements for almost a year -- but here’s how you can make the best of the situation.
They may be waiting until the last minute, but AT&T finally announced on Thursday that their “retail and business channels” will also be carrying the iPad 2 at 5pm local time on Friday, March 11. Meanwhile, Apple.com will start accepting preorders in the wee hours of Friday morning.
So many iPads, so little time! If you're still sitting on the sidelines, wondering which one to go with, and need help, popular opinion is saying the 16GB 3G iPad is the most popular according to a recent survey. But, don't let your PC quit its day job just yet.
Early adopters of the 3G version of Apple's iPad were in for a bit of a surprise over the weekend, finding that ABC's video player app would not work over 3G. Low and behold, AT&T doesn't want you to blame them for it either.
