You know the big news of the week was the new iPad. It's almost like there was no oxygen left in the room for any other article under discussion, but we found a few to tease you with before we get to the goods. Don't worry, they're still great stories, but in case you missed the latest iPad day, we have quite the round up for you.
If you’ve happened to watch Wednesday’s keynote on Apple’s website, you may have noticed a curious thing that CEO Tim Cook did early on -- he stopped the show for a moment to get a few swift kicks in the head to Android’s Twitter app, which he dismissed as simply a “blown-up smartphone app.”
Apple unleashed a blast of new product announcements at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco on Wednesday morning, with a new Retina Display iPad, updated apps and more. Best of all, current users won’t have to wait for these improvements -- some of them are arriving today.
March 7 has finally arrived, and with it comes Apple’s media event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. After teasing with last week’s “We have something you really have to see. And touch” invitations to the press, the fateful day has arrived with CEO Tim Cook taking the stage.
The new iPad will be unleashed upon the public tomorrow! We hope, anyway. As we wait in the bleachers with anticipation for tomorrow morning's event, we're recapping the last bit of rumors to make our own score of what might be in store at Apple's iPad 3 event.
Here's a recap of what we think we know. After all, nothing you hear counts until it's confirmed during a keynote.
Word around the campfire has it that Apple's March 7 press event in San Francisco will mark the debut of a third-generation iPad. Given the nature of the event's marketing artwork, it's a sure bet that Tim Cook and his crew will definitely be talking tablets. That said, does anyone have a handle on what we'll see unveiled next week? Nope, but that's never kept anyone from speculating about what Cupertino has in store for the masses in the past, has it?
Ah, the tech media are such a fickle beast. The recent contacts privacy “oops” with the Path app has turned many members of the media against each other, and now it appears that The New York Times may have fallen from Apple’s graces after its exposé on working conditions at its Chinese factories.
On Monday, Apple announced that the Fair Labor Association will begin conducting voluntary inspections of the company’s suppliers in China, specifically noting Foxconn as one of them. The news comes as a surprise to Apple supplier Pegatron, however, who claims they haven’t been informed of any such inspections.
What a week! Apple is swimming in more cash than they know what to do with, the Macworld/iWorld show is winding down in San Francisco and the EFF is working overtime to keep jailbreaking legal. What’s that? You didn’t hear about that? Why, you’ve come to the right place, then… step right up and have a heaping handful of the best and brightest news for this Friday, January 27, 2012.
