New Thinner, Faster 9.7″ iPad May Also Be Announced October 23; Details – iPA B

During an announcement event centering around the new, 7.85" iPad mini, Apple may spring another surprise on us with the introduction of a revised, fourth-generation standard 9.7" iPad.

Happy 5th Birthday, iPhone!

June 29 marks the day Apple fans waited for in anticipation, lining up in vicious droves five years ago to be an early adopter of Apple’s next big revolutionary product – the hot must-have of the moment in 2007.

Surface’s (Anti-)Purchasing Cycle: Why Surface Can’t Compete with the iPad

There is a reason that seems unbeknownst to every other tablet manufacturer as to why iPad is king of the industry, with no foreseeable future of the device having to hand over its crown (or rather, swipe over - or Bump if the nonexistent reigning device is trendy).
