Apple's new iPad launch in China proved smooth and hitch-feee, with the company's pre-registration rationing system helping prevent the violent crowds that marred the iPhone 4S release earlier this year. Rather than accept walk-in sales, Apple has insisted on a pre-purchase system that requires new iPad buyers to register online the day before they want to collect their iPad in-store; as a result there was no line outside Chinese Apple Stores, and no overnight waiting.

Google+ released for iPad, we go hands-on

Today Google has been so kind as bump up their official Google+ app for iPhone (and iPad) that'll allow people around the world to explore the social network with great ease. This version of Google+ is made for iPhone, but is perfectly suited for the iPad's larger display as well. Graphics come through sharp and well-tuned for the most part, with only a few bits and pieces left for a future version to clean up - gray borders around small images, and other such small matters.

Does an iPad Mini add up, Retina style?

Apple's iPad Mini is the rumor that refuses to die, with several high-profile sites lending their support to speculation that a "tweener" iOS tablet is indeed in the pipeline. Such a slate would presumably instantly help Apple better compete with the Kindle Fire juggernaut, as well as the freshly announced Nexus 7, but that's assuming it can keep up its end of the bargain.
