Chromebook 4K spotted on its way to reality

There's a codename now for the next most impressive Chromebook in the history of Chromebooks. Google's code-named this device Atlas, and it's about to hold the whole world wide web up on its shoulders - that is, a 4K display.

2018 iPad iFixit teardown reveals one saving grace

2018 iPad iFixit teardown reveals one saving grace

Apple’s devices have never been easy to open up and repair. They are intentionally designed to discourage tampering, which, sadly, also makes repairs harder and more expensive. Especially since most owners are pushed to only use authorized Apple repair services. The newest iPad, a.k.a. the 2018 iPad or the iPad 6, carries a lot of the previous generation’s design so its iFixit repairability score isn’t exactly surprising. That said, sticking to that almost ancient design ironically gives this iPad an advantage when it comes to repairs.

The new iPad is perfect for this Darkest Timeline

The new iPad is perfect for this Darkest Timeline

This week Apple introduced a new iPad made of old parts, with a couple new features in tow. I believe this was the most ideal piece of hardware Apple could possibly have released in this darkest timeline. I'm speaking of course of the Community-solidified concept of the Darkest Timeline, the reality in which all of the most extremely unbelievable (if not most evil) thing have come to fruition. This is not the worst Apple could have done - it's their best defense against disaster in these dark days through which we're living.

Today we're having a peek at the new iPad compared to the old iPad, specs on specs. These two devices are exceedingly similar to one-another, looking a whole lot like each-other on the outside save one minor detail. It's what's inside the counts, in a big way.

This Apple event was about progress

This Apple event was about progress

This week's education-focused Apple event was as much about who was on stage as it was about the subjects of which they spoke. Included were more women than men, three teachers and one former-teacher (also a woman of color,) and a whole lot of recognition of the efforts of teachers in general.

Isn’t Apple’s big secret obvious?

Isn’t Apple’s big secret obvious?

In the past few weeks we've seen some real crazy rumors about what Apple will present today at their big education event. They've included cheaper iPads, a new MacBook Air, and even a new iMac Pro. One wildly maniacal rumor suggested Apple was making a new iPad to fight the last vestiges of resistance in the Android tablet market. But what's most obvious - and most likely - isn't what Apple's hiding. It's what Apple's already made plainly obvious.

Cheaper iPads in schools will be a huge win for Apple

Cheaper iPads in schools will be a huge win for Apple

Tablets, as a whole, are not exactly doing well. Whether that’s the traditional slate, the multi-angle convertible, or the detachable 2-in-1, sales for big screen mobile devices continue to decline. That’s true even for Apple, whose iPads still dominate that market.

The company is expected to announce new iPads that are low-cost and marketed at the education sector. And while it’s not going to be a revolutionary device like the first iPad Pro, it could still be a game changer and cement Apple’s position not just in the tablet market but in the education space as well.
