iPad mini Retina Display review – the holy grail of tablets

iPad mini Retina Display review – the holy grail of tablets

It's the iPad mini we've been waiting for: Apple's smaller tablet that, thanks to a Retina display and brand new A7 processor, now punches above its size and makes a legitimate alternative not only for compact-screen Android and Windows rivals, but Apple's own iPad Air too. That Apple has achieved all that with minimal compromises on weight and battery life seems almost too good to be true: could the iPad mini with Retina display be the best tablet in the range? Read on for our full review.

Retina iPad mini available for in-store pickup (if you’re lucky)

Supposing you're aiming to purchase a Retina iPad mini and you don't want to wait for it to be shipped to your home this week after digital sales started this morning. Did you know that you've got the option to head to an Apple store to pick the device up? The only kink in this particular machine is the fact that not every Apple store has the retina iPad mini in stock - it would seem that the majority of the stores across the United States today are without stock at the moment.

Pear OS 8 brings iOS 7 color, OS X UI to Ubuntu for tablets

Pear OS 8 brings iOS 7 color, OS X UI to Ubuntu for tablets

Supposing you’re in a situation where you’d love to work with Apple’s OS X desktop operating system, but for whatever reason you’d rather not - or cannot - work with an Apple-made piece of hardware. If you’re the alternate-solutions type, there may be hope for you with the Linux Ubuntu-based system called Pear OS. The newest version of Pear OS - that’s Pear OS 8 - works with a look and feel that’s very much the most solidly cross-breed inspired iOS/OS X system out in the wild today - again, working with Unbuntu, but certainly appearing to bust out an alternate-universe Apple system by all looks and touches.

Pebble update brings full iOS 7 notifications; SDK 2.0 ready to roll

The smartwatch known as Pebble is seeing a software update today that brings on full iOS 7 integration - across iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch - for full notifications support, just as on Android. This update, which will be pushed out OTA to all users, adds in support for notifications that don’t just include calls, emails, and texts as Pebble launched with, but also with calendar, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, and more - in fact, anything that shows up in Notification Center will be pushed to the smartwatch.

AT&T iPad Air activations pummel last year’s launch

AT&T iPad Air activations pummel last year’s launch

With the launch of the carrier-specific iPad Air comes word that Apple does not appear to be slowing with popularity of the singular iPad franchise. Today AT&T suggests that activations were "more than 200% over the past three days" when compared to "last year's launch weekend." To be specific, this launch weekend taking place last year was for the iPad mini and the slyly launched iPad generation 4, the first with a lightning connector (so both machines had the same).

iPad Air iFixit teardown reveals Qualcomm, Broadcom, Toshiba inside

This week the folks at iFixit have taken their spudgers to the iPad Air, pulling it apart to reveal all the little bits and pieces that together make the smallest of the larger-end of iPad units on the market today.

iPad Air in stores with price-matching (if you know where to look)

The Apple iPad Air goes on sale online and in-stores today, with not just the Apple Store itself sending the machine out to the public. This device is the newest in a line of iPad devices having been released over the past several years, this time bringing on the thinnest and smallest physical footprint the larger of the two iPad models has ever had. This device will continue to be sold alongside the iPad mini and soon the iPad mini with Retina display - likely by the end of this month for the latter.

There is no “Apple Trap”

There is no “Apple Trap”

There's a conspiracy theory appearing in print this week summoning up the suggestion that Apple purposefully creates products that become obsolete over time. The very idea that such an article exists - here in 2013, no less - but that it only targets one single company as such makes it clear: someone didn't do their homework. Claims against Apple specifically are made by the NYTimes in an article called "Why Apple wants to bust your iPhone" in its online edition and "Cracking the Apple Trap" in print.

Tweetbot 3 for iPhone gets complete iOS 7 redesign (but you’ll have to pay)

However, users of Tweetbot 2 will find they have to pay full price for the new version, as no free upgrade is provided.

iPad Air sparks iPad Pro tablet talk

iPad Air sparks iPad Pro tablet talk

Almost immediately after Apple's iPad Air was revealed earlier this week, talk of the next generation began. With the name "Air" in Apple's notebook lineup, one of two different naming conventions, word sprung up that an iPad Pro could be in the works. While we've seen more than our fair share of leaks and tips over the past several weeks (and months, believe it or not) of the iPads that appeared officially just this Tuesday, word of the iPad Pro comes only from precedent.
