Bjork’s new album may sound good to her fans, but the real value is in its interactivity with the iPad. All of the songs on her album will have their own custom-designed app, that allow users to manipulate the songs on the device.
The lawsuit was filed Thursday in Manhattan federal court, one day after court documents showed that Viacom and Time Warner Cable Inc are trying to settle similar litigation.
Nice. That’ll throw a wrench in the Netflix/Hulu machine. Bad news though: it’s not available yet to Time Warner Cable or Cablevisions subscribers. Everyone else with HBO, you’re good to…um…Go.
The previously mentioned Gorillaz album Damon Albarn recorded on tour completely on his iPad will be out for free on Christmas via the band’s website. Says Jamie Hewlett: “At the moment we’ve got an advent calendar on our website and there is a daily door that opens to reveal a gift. On Christmas Eve a video for one of the new songs from the iPad album will be released. Then, on Christmas Day fans get the whole album downloaded to their computer for free as a gift.” Albarn adds: “I literally made it on the road in America over a month. I didn’t write it before, I didn’t prepare it. I just did it day by day as a kind of diary of my experience in America. If I left it until the New Year to release it then the cynics out there would say ‘Oh well, it’s been tampered with’, but if I put it out now they’d know that I haven’t done anything because I’ve been on tour ever since.” [PerthNow viaConsequence of Sound]
Maybe I won’t rush to get that Droid after all.
Then again, this is not a CDMA model. When you purchase the iPad from Verizon it comes with Verizon’s Mobile MiFi Hotspot, which accesses the 3G network and then hooks up to your iPad via wifi.
Though it does for the first time mark a partnership between Apple and Verizon, which is more of a precursor to a Verizon iPhone than anything else.
It’s enough to make a techie iGag.
Some of the sleek new iPads users play with at cityApple stores are laced with potentially dangerous bacteria or are just plain dirty, a Daily News investigation revealed.
Of four iPads that were swabbed in two stores last month and then tested in a lab, two contained harmful pathogens.
The News used medical swabs to covertly collect samples from two iPads in the midtown store and the Meatpacking District location on 14th St. They were then tested for culturable bacteria by the New Jersey-basedEMSL Analytical Inc.
One sample, collected at the 14th St. store, contained Staphylococcus aureus, the most common cause of staph infections, which can lead to an array of ailments, from minor skin infection to meningitis.
Adobe calls out the obvi -Apple’s lack of Flash support
Great use of Bang Bros (second from top right.) Seriously though I love blue legos, must get an iPad so I can look at them.
Man, I’ve been killing myself today trying to find any information on the internet about this new Apple Tablet that gets announced today, but I haven’t seen a word posted about it anywhere.
I’ve checked all over the place — every gardening blog, Tom Wilkinson’s IMDB page,mini-horse.org, this page of dancing chili pepper gifs, I tried AskJeevesing “Phantom Menace spoilers”, I emailed a list of blonde jokes to my seven female bosses, and I even replayed the possessed singing trout five hundred times. Still, nothing.
Weird — I would’ve thought the internet would be all over this Apple announcement. Or at the very least, that a bunch of my friends would be talking about it on Friendster, but no, nothing.
Does anyone have any suggestions of places I should try? I’m really lost here. And YES, before you state the obvious, I DID try searching for “technology” on iwon.com, so don’t insult my intelligence. -Dan Hopper
Hopper wrote the funniest thing about the iPad today and it doesn’t even mention the thing.
Yes, Steve Jobs is a visionary but Mad TV predicted the coming of the iPad back in 2007. Warning: menstrual humor.
Between this and “Can I have yo numba?“ Mad TV keeps getting better retroactively. It was nothing more than an SNL rip off while it was on the air for ten years, but in the meantime it’s launched countless alum and provided great Internet yuks.
