5 killer features that would make the iPad a true laptop replacement

Microsoft made a conscious effort to separate its Surface Pro 3 tablet from the competition by decking it out with some of the most impressive specifications of any tablet on the market. On the other side of the fence, Apple has stuck to relatively minor revisions for its iPad, keeping it closer in functionality to a phone than a laptop.

What has that gotten them? Consecutively yearly declines in total sales. It might be time for Apple to rethink its tablet strategy.

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

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 →

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 →
