In my previous post, I told how I’d bought an Android tablet after several years firmly ensconced in the Apple camp. This new device is to be a secondary tablet for my family and me. As much as I love my full-size iPad, I didn’t love my iPad Mini $200 more than a comparable Android. So what [...]

The one technology purchase I regret is my iPad Mini. I wanted something lighter than my aging iPad 2; the iPad Air was not out yet, and I thought the Mini, with its ebook reader-sized screen, was the one for me. Now that the Air is out—roughly the same weight, but with a proper-sized [...]

The iPad Air has me regretting my Mini a little. When I got the Mini, I was in search of the lightest and smallest Apple tablet I could get. Now that the Air is out though, I am reconsidering. A full-size tablet, but with the Mini’s weight? That is compelling to me. I am not in such a hurry [...]

So earlier this year, I wrote a post on iPad rumors and made a couple of (mostly) tongue-in-cheek predictions. Now that we’ve had Apple’s latest iPad event, shall we see how I did? iPad Predictions “I think we can definitely state that we will see a new iPad sometime later this [...]

It may be a little early to start writing off Apple as the next fading titan a la Microsoft or Nokia, but the latest tablet sales report from the International Data Corporation confirm the impression that it’s not all sunshine and apple blossom right now in Cupertino. The latest issue of [...]

August 1, 2013 // 0 Comments

I love watching dueling rumors. We’ll see an iPad mini with Retina display before the end of the year. No, we’ll see one more mini with the normal display, but a faster processor. Actually, what’s interesting about these two articles is that, if you dig a bit deeper and pay attention, they [...]

It’s that time of year again. Apple’s WWDC went by with no new iPad or iPad mini announcement, so the tech blogosphere goes wild. Because apparently they have nothing better to do with their time than report on iPad rumors (or second-gen Nexus 7 rumors or Nokia phablet rumors, or [...]

June 10, 2013 // 1 Comment

A great write-up at Media Shift asks an important question: Is media becoming too device-dependent? Speaking of the surge in Hearst Media subscriptions following the launch of the purse-sized iPad mini, they concede that “new formats drive new business models,” and while this is not [...]
