Skooba Design’s Netbook and iPad Messenger Bag might be designed specifically for those devices, but it’s actually big enough to swallow a 13-inch MacBook--as well as an iPad and accessories. The flexibility and extra room is nice, but if what you’re looking for is something to schlep your iPad around in, the Skooba might be bigger and more complicated than what you need.
Ever wished your iPad could be more than a giant iPod touch? We know the screen on the iPad makes it far from that when it comes to productivity, but nothing is quite as productive as OS X. Enter the Axon Haptic Hackintosh tablet. It'll make you forget that hackintoshing was ever considered just for desktops.
The tablet is designed to work with any Darwin OS, so you can play with more than just OS X. You can even run Linux or Windows on this thing. But, of course, we're most interested in the OS X compatibility, which seems to be the tablet's main feature. That, and its impressive hardware, which is both user-replaceable and puts the iPad to shame. Here's what's in it (after the cut!).
The iPhone is so rad, it's destroying the very fabric of the cell phone industry and the Mac|Life staff is okay with that. For the love of Pete, when will the NetBook rumors stop? This time it's rumored to hit the market in October. Will it be a trick, or a treat. (Sorry, we couldn't help ourselves.)
Finally, Apple announces that 1.5 billion apps have been downloaded from the App Store. Wow!
The staff talk once again about the possibility of an Apple NetBook. Verizon may, or may not be, in talks with Apple about a new iPhone Lite and Media Pad, and Snow Leopard gets the staff excited. Maybe too excited.
Apple COO, Tim Cook put the smack down on speculation surrounding a
rumored Apple NetBook device. In the company's Q2 results call, Cook
described the current field of NetBooks as having
"cramped keyboards, terrible software, junky hardware, very small
screens" and "not something we would put the Mac brand on."
