Apple Retina iPad advertisements finally cover the United States

Apple Retina iPad advertisements finally cover the United States

You might not have noticed it if your Apple sensor is as normalized as your love for great advertising, but billboards, bus stations, and print ads across the United States have finally switched from iPad 2 to the new iPad for 2012. Have a peek back at our report on when the states were still sticking with iPad 2 advertisements to see the oddity the vast majority of the USA didn't find necessary to notice, then take a peek at a few of the new ads up this week. They've been up for a couple weeks, actually, everywhere from Minneapolis all the way down to San Francisco!

Why iPad 2 still dominates Apple advertising in 2012

Why iPad 2 still dominates Apple advertising in 2012

When the new iPad was released, we wondered how long it would be before Apple switched their billboard and bus stop advertising over to The New iPad - as it turns out, it doesn't appear that they ever will. Why is it that we're still seeing Apple displaying iPad 2 billboards across downtown Minneapolis, London, and San Francisco - aka across the United States and across the ocean to the UK? The answer is actually quite simple.

AT&T toys with premium service

AT&T toys with premium service

AT&T is rolling out a new program called AT&T Plus to select markets in the United States. The company is evaluating the service to see whether or not customers would be willing to pay extra for exclusive benefits. So far, though, the level of benefits is rather paltry. Nevertheless, it is no doubt something that could bring in additional revenue, something AT&T has been trying to do ever since losing iPhone exclusivity.

Stop crying about the iPad naming conventions

Stop crying about the iPad naming conventions

The 3rd generation iPad does not have a new name, but neither does the new MacBook Pro, the Apple TV, or the iMac - go home and cry about it. So called "experts" have been weighing in so heavily over the past 24 hours over the "mistake" made by those responsible for naming the newest iPad that you'd think they were stock owners in the company, all of this saying only one thing to your humble narrator: they're mad that they can't pigeonhole the product as easily as they could before. What I'm contending here is that not only does it make perfect sense that Apple cut out the numbering system from the newest model iPad in this generation, they should have done it right from the start.

Motorola DROID 4 Hands-On and Unboxing

Motorola DROID 4 Hands-On and Unboxing

The fourth iteration of Motorola's ultra-popular DROID line for Verizon has arrived and with its 4-inch qHD scratch and scrape resistant screen, full QWERTY keyboard, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, and 4G LTE connectivity, this may well be the best installment in the series yet! This device is quite reminiscent of the DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX that've also just been released by Motorola and Verizon, the corners, the display, and even the back shape. The difference here is in the edge-lit keyboard, the loving embrace of the core DROID branding, and the fact that it's got a big 4 at the end of its name -- let's have a look at what it means to continue on with the DROID line.

Buffalo Wild Wings is trying to make that a thing of the past, by outfitting select pilot locations with iPads at every table, each equipped with a proprietary app that allows customers to place their order whenever they want. The devices also come with a pre-loaded selection of games.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Review

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Review

Here in the LTE version of the newest Google hero phone, the Verizon Galaxy Nexus (also known as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus or Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE) has not only the unique claim to running Google's newest mobile operating system Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich first, it's also connected to the fastest network in the states, and best of all: you can go to your corner Verizon store and purchase one, unlike the international edition. All that said, you've really got the same device only ever so slightly modified for this particular carrier: Google's vanilla hero phone remains nearly as pure as its first release internationally. What you're going to get here is another perspective on the Galaxy Nexus in general, how ICS handles our day to day, and what it means to own the LTE version of this device here in the USA.

Google Maps goes indoors

Google Maps goes indoors

Though the final frontier may be space, and according to some the ocean of water that surrounds us here on Earth, Google has decided that it's inside buildings - and that's exactly where it's going with it all-encompassing Google Maps environment. You'll be able to work indoors with Google Maps 6.0 for Android, for example, using "My Location", which will soon show you as a blue dot on a map of the location you're at, including both outdoor AND indoors.
