iPad Mini 2 Vs. iPad Mini 3

There is literally one reason to buy the iPad mini 3… and it’s not even a very good one

There is literally one reason to buy the iPad mini 3… and it’s not even a very good one

Apple unveiled several new products today and most of them — particularly the iPad Air 2 and the iMac Retina — look positively fantastic. But I simply have to call B.S. on the new iPad mini 3, Apple’s  new miniature tablet that barely merited a mention at its press event, and for very good reason: There’s basically almost no reason at all anyone should buy one.

Best Place To Sell Used iPad

Buying a new iPad Air 2 or iPad mini? Here’s where to sell your old iPad for the most money

Buying a new iPad Air 2 or iPad mini? Here’s where to sell your old iPad for the most money

Apple’s 2014 iPad models are incremental updates this year, as we have all expected for months. In fact at this point it seems like everyone knows the drill. The second-generation iPad Air 2 and third-generation iPad mini both feature upgraded specs highlighted by the new A8X processor, and they also finally include Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint sensor that was introduced last year on the iPhone 5s.

Apple fans with last year’s iPad Air or iPad mini might find it a bit difficult to open their wallets for these relatively minor upgrades, but those with a need for speed will definitely want Apple’s latest and greatest. And anyone with an older iPad model or a first-generation iPad mini will definitely want to consider a new tablet.

But don’t let those old iPads sit and collect dust. There are plenty of places you can sell your used iPads to help pay for your new ones, and a roundup published on Thursday shows the best places to go if you want top dollar for your old iPad. More →

Apple unveils ‘the best tablet in the world’: Meet the iPad Air 2

Apple’s iPad event is well underway and the company has just announced its next-generation flagship tablet, the iPad Air 2. As you might expect, the new device is the thinnest iPad Air yet released and measures in at 6.1 millimeters thin, or 18% thinner than the original iPad Air. The new tablet will also be the first device to run on the A8x, a new chipset with 3 billion transistors that will deliver an even better performance than the A8 chip found on the iPhone 6. The device also boasts 10 hours of battery life and features an M8 chip with support for a barometer and motion tracking sensors.

Nexus 9 Specs Benchmark

New benchmark suggests the Nexus 9 is almost as powerful as a 2012 Mac Pro

New benchmark suggests the Nexus 9 is almost as powerful as a 2012 Mac Pro

Not only does the new Nexus 9 tablet look terrific but it also apparently performs terrifically as well. Geekbench developer and Primate Labs founder John Poole has just posted the Geekbench results for the Nexus 9 and the results are positively incredible for an Android tablet. The new device’s single-core score on Geekbench totals 1903, which Poole notes is only slightly less than what “an entry-level Mac Pro (2012) scores” at 1925. Poole also says that such a single-core score for a Nexus tablet is flat-out “insane.” More →

NYT: iPad Pro ‘not yet finished,’ not even considered ‘official’ at Apple

For most of the year, reports detailing a bigger 12.9-inch iPad, often referred to as the “iPad Pro,” offered contradicting views on Apple’s tablet plans. Some said Apple is indeed working on a bigger tablet, but others said the project has been shelved. While more and more reports have recently suggested that the iPad Pro will make its debut next year, The New York Times has learned the product isn’t even considered official within Apple yet.

Leak: Is this our first look at the brand new iPad Air 2?

Leak: Is this our first look at the brand new iPad Air 2?

Apple’s huge iPhone 6 and iWatch unveiling last month was probably the most hyped event Apple has ever hosted. The leaks and rumors leading up to Apple’s September press conference were off the charts, the social media chatter on launch day was crazy, and it ended up being BGR’s single biggest day of traffic ever by a shockingly wide margin. Everyone wanted to see Apple’s new iPhones (despite the fact that we had already seen them dozens of times in leaks) and find out when they would finally launch.

Fast-forward Thursday, just one month later, and the lead up to Apple’s big iPad and Mac event seems eerily quiet. Does anyone care about tablets and computers anymore? More →
