Apple is believed to have offered $16m to Chinese firm Proview to finally secure use of the iPad trademark in China, but the ailing company is reportedly holding out for a huge $400m settlement. Although Apple confirmed it had made an offer to Proview earlier this week, it declined to specify what sums were discussed; according to sources familiar with the negotiations speaking to Chinese site Sina, however, Proview has been forced to demand far more than Apple is willing to offer, as its creditors ratchet up the pressure.

32nm iPad 2 brings improved battery life

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.
