Brookstone iConvert Scanner for iPad Review

Brookstone iConvert Scanner for iPad Review

You'll bust this Brookstone device out, plug it in to the wall, dock your iPad, and start scanning with the free iConvert app - all of your images go directly to your iPad Camera roll at 300 dpi.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 vs iPad = no contest

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 vs iPad = no contest

The differences between the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and the iPad (1, 2, and 3 for that matter) are immense - though I'm sure the title of this post will evoke a litany of different interpretations from readers here today.

Samsung didn't create the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 to compete with the iPad, but the inevitable question that pops up in the mind of everyone considering a new tablet purchase does end up being that almost no matter what: do I want this, or do I want an iPad instead?

32nm iPad 2 brings improved battery life

If you didn’t want to drop the full $499 on the new iPad but wanted the Apple experience, the $399 iPad 2 wasn’t a bad choice at all.

Performance is the same, but as it turns out, battery life has improved thanks to the more efficient CPU.
