The iPad 2 was unveiled yesterday, it's thinner, faster and lighter. What really impressed me however was the new cover design. It's attaches magnetically to the iPad, when opened the iPad wakes up and when closed the the iPad goes back into sleep mode. You can fold the cover to make a stand for typing or watching video and the micro fibre internal lining is design to keep the screen clean! Just genius, now could someone buy me an iPad 2!
On my journey back from the West on Sunday I sat beside a man who was gently cradling a new Apple iPad. He gazing at the screen, transfixed by high resolution 9.7inch LED-backlit IPS display completely in love. I pretending to read my book(how retro), all of the time stealing glances at the 1024-by-768 resolution glossy screen thinking, 'it will be mine.' Yes apple marketing all of your emails and block advertising on TV3 had worked...Then he touched the screen...a mark, a greasy mark then another and another, when will this carnage end I thought. Defaced he place the device on the table in front of him...I'm sorry iPad the affair is over between us, but it was sweet while it lasted.
Apple have announced the new iPhone 4 and it seems the leaked version that was left in a bar by an apple employee was the real deal after all and not an elborate hoax (see here). It looks amazing and the new featues like video chat with front and back camera, better screen resolution, video editing with imovie, folders so you can organise your apps, I could go on but I am drooling on my keyboard. It's probably best if you just watch the promo here.
