iPad 2 : an Apple 2011 Retrospective

iPad 2 : an Apple 2011 Retrospective

The past 365 days have been, without a doubt, the Year of the iPad 2, and as you're about to see, this includes more than just great sales and undeniable attention from both consumers and developers the same. It all started in March as the Apple iPad 2 went on sale. Of course we pre-struck with an early What should I get guide and a few reviews of the device itself by our head writers. We had rather interesting (and telling) results in a poll from March asking if people would be buying an iPad 2, and an article also all the way back in March foretold much on how it's so hard to compete with the iPad. Then the new year brought fourth an event of giant proportions. Behold the 2011 year in the most omnipotent tablet on the market.

iPad-toting snowboard created in tribute to Jobs

iPad-toting snowboard created in tribute to Jobs

The folks at Signal Snowboard have a deal called Every Third Thursday where they take time out of their busy board-making day to create something utterly strange, awesome, or otherwise never having been done before - and this week they're bringing the heat with a custom iShred snowboard with built-in iPad in tribute of the recently deceased Steve Jobs. What they do here is to start with the raw materials, cut down some ABS for the top with an iPad hole, add an aluminum base, and away they go! All of this is done with CNC machines to precise cuts all around - but will the tricks they perform once the board is done have the iPad surviving the falls?

Apple A6 tipped ready for primetime (in iPad 3?) come Q2 2012

Apple A6 tipped ready for primetime (in iPad 3?) come Q2 2012

Apple's new A6 processor could be ready for public debut as early as Q2 2012, new reports suggest, with TSMC again tipped to be in trial production of the new ARM-based silicon. According to CENS' industry sources, the design of the Apple A6 is expected to be taped out in Q1 next year, using 28nm production processes and innovative 3D stacking construction. If the timescales are correct, the iPad 3 - which rumors suggest will use the A6 SoC - could arrive later in the year than the iPad 2 did, constrained by the production availability of the CPU.

LG Display iPad 2 panel orders reportedly halted over reliability

LG Display iPad 2 panel orders reportedly halted over reliability

LG Display has reportedly drifted from favor among iPad 2 display suppliers, after quality issues have supposedly prompted Apple to suspend new orders from the firm. According to DigiTimes' sources, LG Display's low yield rates and a tendency for backlighting units to fail during drop tests soured Apple's opinion, hence the order book freeze. You could excuse Samsung for being confused by Apple's affections, too; while in Europe the Cupertino company is busy securing injunctions against Samsung products, it's also reportedly increasing orders for 9.7-inch Samsung displays.

3D Apple A6 CPU tipped amid iPhone 5 overheat reports

3D Apple A6 CPU tipped amid iPhone 5 overheat reports

Apple's A6 processor could beat Intel to the market for 3D IC chip construction, using the complex layering system so as to avoid overheating issues of the sort supposedly threatening to delay the next-gen iPhone and the current Apple A5 processor. According to EETimes, a Taiwanese report claims TSMC will be producing 3D 28nm chips by the end of the year which, SemiWiki says, can see performance boosted by around 30-percent while power consumption drops by around 50-percent. That will also add up to reduced heat output.

Apple patent applications surface for stylus pens on iPad and iPhone

Apple patent applications surface for stylus pens on iPad and iPhone

It seems that Steve Jobs and his minions in Cupertino are reversing on the long held beliefs that a stylus isn’t required if you get a touchscreen device right. Jobs once quipped on stage during a presentation, "It’s like we said on the iPad, if you see a stylus, they blew it." If you go by that statement then Apple may have blown it since two more patent apps have surfaced that show Apple looking at stylus tech for potential use in its gear.

iPad 2 StealthArmor Mini Review Application Demo

iPad 2 StealthArmor Mini Review Application Demo

It is here and now that yours truly takes the time to apply a brand new StealthArmor armored skin to the iPad 2. This is a special cut skin, precision machined as all StealthArmor skins are, to fit the device precisely. Therefore, precise movement and craftsman smooth movements are needed to apply the skin to the iPad 2 correctly. You'll see your humble narrator apply this orange skin twice, one screw up resulting in a tiny misalignment that needed a full start-over. That DOES show you though that the skin is indeed removable - re-applicable to multiple devices if you for some reason have the need, or have a tough time applying in the first place.

Sony CEO takes potshots at “burning” iPads

Sony CEO takes potshots at “burning” iPads

It's not just accidentally confirming that Apple is using Sony CMOS sensors, presumably for the iPhone 5, that CEO Howard Stringer has been doing; the outspoken exec also spent some time taking pot-shots at his rivals. On stage with the WSJ's Walt Mossberg at an event earlier this week, Stringer cautioned an iPad owner in the audience to "be careful it doesn’t burn you if you wave it around" in what was seemingly a bizarre reference to Apple devices overheating.
