Wife Says No. Apple Says Yes.

By on

Apple has been paying close attention to the reasonings behind iPad 2 returns for the past few weeks. This is mainly to make sure that there aren’t any technical glitches on the new device (death-grip anyone?). But one particular return has put a smile on their faces. One iPad came back with a post it note on it that said “Wife said no.” It was escalated as something funny, and […]

TECHGEEK Weekly 37: Kicking in the Front Seat

By , and on

We’re back with a new episode, and while the tech industry is at a standstill, the Internet gets a red-light district, and the Zune bids adieu. Meanwhile, the week has been dominated by security flaw after security flaw, and Rebecca Black infects our Chris’ mind with the weekend. We also wonder why 13-year olds are driving cars, and Internet Explorer 9 is finally out – and Stewart hates it. Why? […]

One year, many possibilities – Apple video highlights iPad success

By on

Showcased at its iPad 2 keynote earlier in the morning, Apple has now released a “Year-in-review”-esque video where it highlights the successes of the iPad and how it has managed to change how people interact – and remember, this was all in one year.

It’ll all be going down on the 2nd of March, or early in the morning next week. I’ve got my money on an iPad 2 (obviously) with a camera, better screen and some other goodies.
