Apple iPad – Just another large iPod

Apple in an event yesterday released a new product which filled the gap between the iPhone and the MacBook pro. This new device is officially known as the iPad.

The iPad sports a 9.7 inch multitouch screen, with normal iPod features such as music, video , photos and apps from the app store. The iPad did not seem to have dazzled us.
It felt as just a large iPod.

The only two new functionalities observed was the implementation of iWork on the iPad and a new app , iBooks

iBooks is a book reader application for the iPad. There is even an online book store by Apple which will be integrated with the iTunes store.

Apple called the product a magical device . The iPad seems to be a promising kindle killer .
It lacked a lot of features again , no cameras were builtin, no multitasking support, only 64GB versions , no flash support yet !

The iPad runs on iPhone OS 3.2 and the keyboard too didn’t look that responsive . The idea of the iPad as a gaming console was even demolished by Apple! In short, the iPad did not have anything which made us say . ” Hell WoW, I am going to get this thing now!”

The hardware includes Apples own A4 chip along with wifi and 3G, accelerometer and compass.

The only revolutionary part was the price which starts at $499. The complete details of the ipad is now up on the apple website.

iBooks – Kindle Killer!

Apple released ibooks which is a great way to read and buy books. The app is featured for the iPad.

“It has a bookshelf. In addition there’s a button which is the store — we’ve created the new iBook Store. You can download right onto your iPad.” — Steve Jobs

Five big partners… Penguin, Macmillion, Simon & Shuster… and more.

The format of the books being ePub.

You can flip the page by tapping anywhere on the right, change the size, or flip back by tapping on the left. Or, drag the page over manually using touch.

You could even select the font of the book by just tapping the screen!

Kodak sues Apple

Kodak, a company that manufactures digital cameras and other photography related products, filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission, alleging the Apple iPhone.

Kodak also filed lawsuits against Apple in the U.S. District Court in Rochester, claiming an infringement of patents related to digital cameras and certain computer processes. It is asking for unspecified monetary damages and a court order to end the disputed practices.

INSIDE APPLE – WHY INDULGE GOEBBELS

Apple’s announcement for the January 27, 2010 mega event has caught the fancy of the entire world. Guesses are running wild and expectations are being poured in.

Goebbels once said that if you repeat a lie often enough, people will think it is the truth.

Unlike the “run-of-the-mill”, TheAppleGoogle.com has faith in the vision of Apple and its numero uno Steve Jobs. We will not guess what is inside the new Apple product and let the wild horses loose but we know for sure that we will have a marvel from a great organization like Apple.

We will be reporting for you on 27th January, 2010.

The Voice of the iSlate!

On January 27th Apple is going to release a new product which will most probably change the way people have been interacting with their Computers and Mobile Phones. The release of the iSlate or iPad will mark the beginning of a whole new era of computing!

The iSlate is to be announced during an event to be held at San Francisco.

The iSlate is rumored to have great innovative features such as Huge Screen with IPS technology, iWork compatibility and more. Another feature should be that ,the iSlate must be completely Voice enabled with support for Speech recognition. If iWork is to be accustomed with the iSlate, then Speech recognition will help a lot of business users. Two microphones should be built in which would enhance the use of Skype and other such services. Just by speaking the name of an application, the iSlate must be compatible enough to pop it up.

Microsoft’s Project Natal has been designed to recognize words such as “Good Night” which would just switch it off.
The Apple Tablet must also be compatible with similar technologies.

Voice Input must work with any application which has text input available, just as the Nexus One. Music Search, Hands free Dialing, Posting Tweets by your voice,News,Sports and Weather and Battery Remaining could be great!

In just three days, we’ll find out whether the iSlate does support these features or not!
