Apple sells 22.9 million iPads in Q1

Apple's results for its fiscal first quarter of 2013 are in, and things are looking pretty good for the iPad family of devices.

Volkswagen’s CrossBlue SUV is one huge iPad mini dock

Apple's iPad mini could get itself a huge new ride, if Volkswagen green-lights production on the six-seater CrossBlue SUV concept shown off at the North American International Auto Show today. Coupling ample interior space with surprising efficiency given the bulk, thanks to a diesel-electric hybrid engine capable of 35mpg combined - or 89mpge in all-electric mode, albeit with a maximum range of just 14 miles - the CrossBlue looks to Apple's tinier tablet for its rear passengers, with dual docks for a pair of the iPads in the back of the front-row headrests.
