The new Apple iPad

Thursday, January 28th, 2010


The device, which looks like a larger version of Apple’s iPod Touch will be available in two to three months, and starts at $499 very good price for a quality mobile device. It sports a 9.7-inch LCD touch-screen display, which makes use of the same multitouch technology found on the iPhone, Apple’s Magic Mouse, and its notebook trackpads. It also has the same in-plane switching display technology that made its debut in the latest crop of iMacs. Like the iPhone and iPod, it sports a finger-friendly OS with an on-screen QWERTY keyboard, and an accelerometer that can detect whether the device is in portrait or landscape mode. It has a 30-pin dock connector, built-in Wi-Fi, and a home button that jumps users back to the main screen of the OS. It also has a volume rocker and a mute button–just like the iPhone. It’s sporting a 1Ghz custom Apple chip. Apple says it can get 10 hours of video. The iPad will come in 16, 32, and 64GB capacities for $499, $599, and $699, respectively. The iPad with just Wi-Fi will be shipping in the next 60 days, with the 3G version in the next 90 days. • The iPad weighs just 1.5 pounds. The version with 3G is .1 pounds heavier. • The screen resolution is 1024×768 (the iPhone/iPod is 480×320). As for apps, the iPad’s screen runs larger than what can be found on Apple’s smaller portable devices, which means developers have more screen real estate to work with. Apple also introduced an updated version of its iWork software. It’s the first version of the software to run on one of Apple’s portable devices, and makes full use of the iPad’s touch screen. Apple said the iBooks store will feature both popular books as well as text books.

What better way to combine Windows 7 than with Parallels

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

We have just found the best of both worlds. Having just installed Parallels 5 with Windows 7 on a Mac, there is no better way to stay compatible with both operating systems.

Have a quick read on the Parallel’s website:
