Consumer Reports hasn’t just reversed its opinion on the new iPad’s heat output, finding the third-gen Apple tablet to best all Android rivals, but has quietly conceded that the recharging issue it initially reported is far less significant than first believed. “Further tests of observations we made that the new iPad was not recharging when playing a demanding, intense video game,” Consumer Reports said, “showed that the problem was limited to times when the device was playing a demanding game with the screen fully bright.”

Filed in: TabletsAppleiPad 3

Facebook rolled out an update this morning that adds support for the new iPad’s Retina display to its iPad application. According to the release notes in iTunes, users with the new iPad will now see “a crisp, high resolution interface.” The update (version 4.1.1) brings other bug fixes, too, as well as support for additional languages.
The Retina-ready version of the app was hinted at last week, when someone spotted a teaser for the upcoming app in the iTunes App Store’s “New and Noteworthy” section. The message displayed at the time read “Enhanced for the New iPad,” presumably meaning it would soon add support for Retina graphics.

Apple developing a game controller for the iPad?

Apple developing a game controller for the iPad?

Posted on Apr 03, 2012 by MG3

According to a report on Anandtech, Apple has an internal development project to create a game controller for its iOS devices (presumably the iPad would be the targeted device). Writing about the current situation, where Android supports gaming devices while Apple has not, Anand Shimpi indicated:
“I know of an internal Apple project to bring a physical controller to market, but whether or not it will ever see the light of day remains to be seen. As smartphones and tablets come close to equalling (sic) the performance of current game consoles, I feel like the controller problem must be addressed.”

Apple Claims the iPad's Charging "Bug" Is Actually a Feature

Posted on Mar 29, 2012 by MG1

Filed in: TabletsAppleiPad 3

Since it was launched, people have been complaining that the new iPad doesn't charge properly, reporting that the device isn't fully charged even when it claims to be. Apple has now responded, stating that this is actually on purpose.
All Things D reports that Apple broke it down for them: The iPad displays that it is 100-percent charged before it is. At that point, it continues to charge to capacity, before dishcarging a little, and then charges back up to 100 percent again. Speaking to All Things D, Apple VP Michael Tchao explains:

New iPad runs hotter than Android tablets

New iPad runs hotter than Android tablets

Posted on Mar 27, 2012 by MG1

A lot has been made about how much hotter the new iPad runs than its predecessors. Overall, the blame has been placed on the much much larger battery found in the device, as well as the higher-res screen, and the updated processor... so essentially there has been blame placed on everything new about the new iPad. Apple, of course, says that the new iPad is "well within... thermal specifications".
New iPad runs hotter than Android tablets
Whether or not the iPad performs within the average user's "thermal specifications" are neither here nor there, but PCWorld has done a little research to compare the average temperature of other popular tablets, and the new iPad beats them all (or loses, i....

Motorola doing soak test for the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi; update is coming

Posted on Mar 26, 2012 by MG1

If you have a Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi, Motorola would like you to participate in a soak test. This beta test would allow you to check out the next software update before everyone else, just to make sure that everything is running fine after the software is installed. Because the tablet already received the Ice Cream Sandwich update this past January, we could be looking at Android 4.04 or Android 4.05. Don't expect more than just a few bug fixes and some enhancements here and there.
Motorola has sent out an email to those it is asking to join. You do have to be a member of the Motorola Feedback Network to receive these requests. And your reward is just that feeling that you did something good fo...
