Just moments ago, Apple has unveiled the iPad's smaller, thinner brother (or cousin, we would even venture as far as sister) in the form of iPad mini. iPad mini seems to strike the right chords with its size, battery life, performance, and price for a tablet of this form factor.
If you've ever been compelled to run outside during a storm and pretend that you're in the movie Twister, then you'll be relieved to know that there's an app for that too. Storm Spotter — built by a storm-chasing meteorology major — was built exclusively for the purpose of helping you chase after storms while viewing relevant info on where it is and what it's doing.
The app pulls info from 155 radar sites around the US and displays up to the minute radar imagery using Google Maps. It even shows your position relative to the storm using GPS. There's a bunch of other stuff in there too, but I honestly don't understand it. However, if you happen to be a storm chaser, you should definitely check out Storm Spotter. It's $4.99 in the App Store.
