Alleged iPad ‘Pro’ cases shown off in video (it’s so thin!)

With tablet sales slumping, rumors of an ‘iPad Pro’ still circulate. The 12-inch tablet is widely speculated on, but we’ve still not seen anything close to a finished product. There have been ‘dummy’ models photographed, and cases surreptitiously snapped, but nothing suggesting anyone has a working iPad Pro anywhere on Earth (except maybe Cupertino). In the latest turn of events, we’re getting another look at cases for this iPad Pro. The difference? this time it’s a video, not sketchy pics from who-knows-where.

Apple, IBM deal will bring iPads to Japan’s elderly

Apple, IBM deal will bring iPads to Japan’s elderly

Apple and IBM have entered an agreement with Japan Post to bring iPads to the elderly. The move is a technological step for Japan Post’s ‘Watch’ service, which leverages postal employees to check in on the elderly now and then. Watch currently costs 1,000 Yen/month ($8.50 or so). Japan Post is government-owned, and operates roughly 24,000 post offices in addition to a large bank. Japan Post is also one of the nation’s largest insurers, and hopes iPads will both scale their Watch service as well as make it easier on everyone involved.

Nikon nudges photographers toward DSLRs with new app

Mobile photography has done many things: opened up a photography hobby to the masses, ushered in a glut of filtered images, and further divided the professionals (and aspiring professionals) from the amateurs. Many still turn to professional-grade cameras to meet their needs, DSLRs standing chief among them, but getting started is tricky -- there are numerous lenses and accessories available for digital SLR cameras, and pining down exactly what you need is hard. Nikon has taken a step, however, to simplify the process.

Moshi VersaCover review; origami cool for the iPad

Apple loves aluminum, and glass, and combining the two forms some very beautiful — and fragile — mobile devices.

As devices edge toward paper-thin, we’re always looking for ways to protect them. For iPad, Moshi has created the VersaCover, an all-over protective case that has some interesting viewing options.

Apple granted another stylus patent, Jobs would disapprove

Apple granted another stylus patent, Jobs would disapprove

Tech companies usually file dozens, if not hundreds, of patents that never see the light of a product launch. They've become more of legal guarantees and protection than actual plans for something tangible, much less marketable. That said, the fact that Apple has been granted yet another patent relating to an active stylus for a mobile device is still noteworthy, especially in light of the late Steve Jobs' dislike of the pointy tool. Plus, it adds fodder to rumors of a larger iPad Pro that will be marketed more to content creators than conventional content consumers.
