While it hasn’t been officially announced by Apple, for the fifth anniversary of the App Store, many of the best and best-selling games and apps for iOS are free right now. Yes, free!
4chan creator Chris Poole launched Canvas last year, which encourages people to get remix photos, drawings and memes. He’s taking that one step further with a new iPad app called DrawQuest, that gives users a prompt and fill in the missing portions of drawings, trying to encourage people to find creativity even if they don’t think they’re creative.
Well, the reason is clear— Apple just wants to continue to diversify its iPad line, but does anyone really need a 128gb iPad right now? A large capacity phone is one thing, for carrying around all your music and photos and videos, but Apple wants you to store most of that shit in the cloud anyway. Plus, at a price of $800 for WiFi or $930 for 3G, you’re starting to get into MacBook Air territory anyway. But hey… a 128gb iPad now exists.
If someone is trying to sell you an iPad in a gas station parking lot in northern Texas, it’s probably bullshit. Just saying. Especially if it comes in plain white box that “feels right”, but the guy won’t actually let you see inside… it’s probably bullshit.
A couple years ago, North Korea launched its first “tablet”, though it was just really a super cheap Chinese LCD late 80s PDA. This past week, they announced again that they had “invented” a tablet for real this time, and while this looks more like a tablet, it’s still just a cheap Chinese rip-off product that North Korea is showing off as its own invention.
Everyone knew that Apple would be announcing the iPad mini today, but it was the real computer side of things that was most exciting. Specifically, the insanely thin new iMac, which suddenly makes any other desktop computer look like some 1970s monster box.
Let the Apple anticipation begin— the company announced today that they’ll be holding a press event on October 23rd to announce the iPad mini. The new iPad is expected to come in at a size and price that puts the tablet in direct competition with the likes of the Amazon Kindle Fire and the Nexus 7. Oh, and Microsoft will be launching the ever living motherfucker out of Windows 8 and Windows 8 tablets just a few days later, so that probably has something to do with the timing.
Most fast food places these days have a TV or two mounted on the wall, so you can silently watch weather or the news while you’re downing your burger, but a McDonald’s in Virginia Beach is taking it to the next level by having iPads scattered about so you can surf the web, watch porn or play games with your greasy French fry fingers.
