It was a tuesday, and since I got home from the office early that day, I decided to pop into my son’s daycare to take him home. As I open the door, I see him (wearing a fireman’s hat) with two other boys, all crowded around a PC screen. They keep touching the CRT and my son says, “It’s broken.”
The touchscreen — and more specifically, the popularity of the iPhone and iPad — have changed the way we interact with technology. A few years ago, Steve Jobs was insistent that touchscreen computers just weren’t going to take off. But my three-year-old boy says different. And I think he might be right.

I, like many adults, used to collect comics. I owned dozens of long boxes, filled to the brim with various copies of X-Men, Spider-Man and Detective. But I eventually traded comic books for cars, and shortly thereafter my collection went away, sold to a man for pennies on the dollar.
Three years ago, I started collecting again. But I didn’t end up in a dusty comic book shop that smelled of vanilla and shame, but instead from the comfort of my living room using the many popular iPad apps built by Comixology. And recently, the game changed again with Marvel Unlimited. But the shape of the online comic book landscape still isn’t that bright. How so? Let’s find out.

With the advent of smartphones, and largely driven by the market-defining success of the iPhone, the way in which we employ these devices has changed. The telephone and the mobile phone were designed so that we could speak to each other with distance being no object. Nowadays, we increasingly email, text, iMessage, twitter, facebook or google. We are using mobile phones to talk increasingly less. Despite this, an app called Wavedeck Voice Messenger PTT makes it easier to communicate than, say, texting. (more…)
The iPad mini is an interesting concept. It’s something that consumers everywhere have been talking about for a long time, but now that it’s finally here, there’s been a lot of talk from the tech media about how the product really doesn’t measure up to expectations. How it’s not good enough because it doesn’t have a Retina display, or that it doesn’t have enough RAM. Yes, a lot of the tech press says that the iPad mini is a disappointment all the way around, but there are still a lot of people who bought them this past weekend, including me.
The iPad mini has now been in my hands for the past few days. So what’s the verdict? Is it worth it as a purchase or should the general public hold off? Is the tech press correct in their judgement? To find out, head over to iPad.AppStorm for the full post.
Today is a big day — there’ll be an Apple announcement in a little bit (or it has already happened, depending on when you read this), and it should be pretty big. The hot rumor is that it’s a 7.85-inch iPad, but is that really it? Is it just new Mac hardware? Something random we’ve never heard of?
Well you tell us! Fill in the poll to the right and let’s see what you think!
We’re doing some research here around these parts, and when comparing the numbers between the iPhone and iPad sites, we get a lot more visitors on the iPhone side of things. It made me wonder how many of our iPhone.AppStorm readers own an iPad, and how many iPad.AppStorm readers own an iPhone.
Here’s my guess: most of our iPad.AppStorm readers own an iPhone (over 50%), but less than 25% of our iPhone.AppStorm readers own an iPad.
So am I right or am I way off base? Let me know in the poll to the right.
Are you also sporting an iPad? Our sister site iPad.AppStorm is here to cater for your every app-related need!

Yeah, yeah, yeah. There’s a new iPad and we hear it’s awesome. Even though this isn’t our sister site, iPad.AppStorm, we know that most of you either have an iPad or are considering the purchase sometime soon. That’s what the iOS system is all about, right?
So did you pull the trigger and get yourself a new iPad? Let us know in the poll to the right.
As predicted by pretty much everyone, Apple held an event on March 7th, and it was to announce the new iPad, complete with its Retina display and all sorts of other fancy tools. As seems to be the case with the iPad, whatever we find inside could make its way into the next iPhone.
So now, let’s take a look at what the iPad has presently, and what we think will make its way into the next iPhone. Spoiler: not everything will make the crossover. (more…)
So the new iPad was introduced last week, and with it came some pretty major technical improvements that make up one really impressive device. In the previous two generations, certain improvements were introduced with the iPad, then passed over to the iPhone and we so no reason why this time should be any different.
Do you? What do you think will make it to the next model of iPhone? Let us know in the poll to the right.
