Here’s why Apple’s upcoming ‘iPad Pro’ will be a failure, according to Steve Jobs

Late Apple CEO Steve Jobs will be remembered for a number of things. There is little question that he helped shaped the world as we know it today, first by pushing modern computing forward and then by leading the charge that moved computing off of our desks and laps, and into our pockets. Jobs was never afraid to speak his mind of course, and he would regularly make bold statements that promoted Apple’s products while belittling the competition. Of course, he was also known for his epic 180s, when Apple would go on to release a product that completely went against Jobs’s earlier statements.

Now, it looks like that tradition will live on when Apple releases its hotly anticipated “iPad Pro” sometime later this year. More →

Leak reveals first details surrounding Samsung’s 2015 tablet lineup

We’ve already had a heaping helping of Samsung smartphone news to kick off the new year (with plenty more to come), but all has been quiet on the tablet front in January. At least that was the case, until SamMobile published a report on Wednesday claiming that the South Korean company is currently hard at work on four new tablets in the Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Note lines.

These incredible works of art were created on an iPad

When the concept of the tablet was originally floated, the skepticism seemed insurmountable. Who needs an oversized smartphone that can’t make phone calls? A miniaturized laptop that doesn’t have a keyboard? That was the mentality at the time, but years later, tablets have become a crucial part of the market. More →

Leaked pic may show us how massive Apple’s reinvented 12-inch iPad will be

The iPad’s momentum has been seriously slowing down lately, which is why Apple is reportedly trying to give it some fresh life with a massive new 12-inch “iPad Pro” that will supposedly be the closest thing to a tablet-PC hybrid the company has yet released. MacRumors has snagged a leaked photo taken from a Weibo account in China that’s simply labeled “iPad Pro” and that seems to show the manufacturing mold for the device’s rear shell, although MacRumors points out that this pic may be for a dummy unit that isn’t the final version.

The Microsoft Surface wins its most high-profile iPad convert yet

How To Fix Cracked iPad Screen

How to fix a cracked iPad Air 2 screen yourself in 10 minutes

How to fix a cracked iPad Air 2 screen yourself in 10 minutes

There are few things that are more heartbreaking to a gadget fan than a cracked smartphone screen. Gorilla Glass is incredibly strong, but it may never be strong enough to survive some of the nasty spills that smartphones often take. If there is one thing that’s even sadder than a cracked smartphone screen though, it’s probably a cracked tablet screen. For some reason, the larger scale makes it that much more heartbreaking.

If you have Apple’s iPad Air 2 and it recently became the victim of an unfortunate accident, you’ll need so cough up some serious money to get it fixed or replace it. If you’re handy, however, and you can manage to source parts at a decent price, you can save some money by fixing your iPad yourself in about 10 minutes. More →

This is Apple’s latest attempt to increase iPad sales this holiday season

Apple’s share of the tablet business has been steadily decreasing, with overall demand for tablets not being as strong as it once was either, but the company is far from throwing in the towel when it comes to its tablet ambitions. Apple has already taken one step to making iPads more interesting to businesses, and that’s launching special enterprise-focused iOS apps earlier this week, and the company is rumored to be working on an even bigger iPad for next year. But for now, Apple is looking at maximizing iPad sales this holiday season, which will likely be a new record for the company when it comes to quarterly earnings. More →
