  1. Woman Buys iPad From Stranger at Gas Station, Surprised to Find Mirror Instead

    As a preface, let's just go ahead and say that if you buy anything from a random stranger at a gas station, you're pretty much asking for it. Strangers working the counter are okay, but if they pull up next to you and offer to sell you any kind of gadget, chances are they're not on the up and up. A Texas woman didn't necessarily think the same, and dropped $200 on what she thought was an iPad. Turns out, the "iPad" she bought was just a mirror with an Apple sticker on it.

  2. Apple Commercial Features Piano App, All Piano Apps Profit Accordingly

    Apple tends to feature various apps that their products can run in their commercials. Since this is pretty much the only function these devices provide, it's a common occurrence. Developers love it when the company does this, because the general public really isn't that discerning. Thanks to a recent iPad commercial featuring a piano being used in GarageBand, piano apps across the board seem to be doing exceedingly well.

  3. London Council to Install 14,000 Streetlights Capable of Being Controlled by iPad

    Cutting energy costs by fiddling with streetlights is something that's seen debate in the United Kingdom. Turning them off entirely isn't exactly a great option, of course, but there's little that can be done with the infrastructure as it currently exists beyond flipping them off and on. Westminster City Council is looking to change all that. Over the next four years, they'll be switching their 14,000 streetlights to smart alternatives capable of being controlled by an iPad, saving the council hundreds of thousands a year.

  4. Apple Required to Reissue Samsung Statement After Original Deemed Noncompliant by U.K. Court

    As we've previously reported, part of the ruling against Apple in the United Kingdom required the company to issue a statement on their website saying that the Samsung Galaxy Tab, and by extension Samsung, didn't infringe on the iPad's design. When they finally got around to posting the statement, however, it was tucked away in a linked page and included some extra bits that the U.K. court didn't request. Thanks to their attempts to circumvent the ruling, Apple's been ordered that they have to reissue their statement in order to comply with the original ruling.

  5. Watch the Apple iPad Mini Event Live

    It's finally time, folks. October 23rd means Apple's "special event" is actually upon us. If current speculation is correct, the company is all set to announce a smaller version of their widely-adopted iPad. Whether it will actually be called the "iPad Mini" is up for debate, but it's almost certainly on the docket to be revealed. Who knows? Maybe they'll actually unveil something surprising. The show starts at 1 P.M. EST and 10 A.M. in California.

  6. Teacher Accidentally Syncs Revealing Photo to School iPad, Students Suspended for Seeing It

    As everyone probably guessed, adding technology to the classrooms has its advantages and disadvantages. Sure, it allows for students and teachers to interact with subjects and lessons in entirely new ways, but technology can also prove just how inept we truly are when it comes to gadgets. At Highland Middle School in Anderson, Indiana, four boys have been suspended after viewing a "partially-clad" photo of their teacher on a school-issued iPad. Their teacher had apparently not realized that her phone had synced with the device.

  7. Apple Will Actually Have to Run Ads in the U.K. Saying Samsung Didn’t Infringe on Their iPad Patents

    Back in July, a United Kingdom court ruled the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 didn't infringe on the iPad design patents as claimed by Apple. By filing the lawsuit and dragging Samsung's name through the mud, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Samsung in general were associated with patent infringement and illegal activity in the minds of the people. The United Kingdom court asserted that Apple would have to run what's basically a giant retraction by taking out advertisements saying Samsung didn't infringe on their patents in order to rectify the situation. Apple's just lost their appeal, so it looks like they actually will have to run the ads.

  8. The Dirtiest iPads of Them All: McDonald’s Offering Free iPad Use to Dining Customers

    Not content with the fast food business, a McDonald's in Hampton Roads, Virginia is giving customers the option of free iPad use should they decide to leisurely dine inside the establishment, rather than the hit-and-run dining to which we're all accustomed when it comes to McDonald's. One can only imagine how dirty those screens must get from all the burger juice and fry grease.

  9. Netflix “Just For Kids” Hits iPad, Finally Frees Up the TV From Their Small Grubby Hands

    For anyone that has children, Netflix's "Just for Kids" portal can truly be like a gift from above. The treasure trove of kid-friendly shows available dwarfs just about any other offering. This portal, unfortunately, has been mostly confined to the television via consoles or the web. There was no good way to have them watch their shows without occupying at least one major screen -- and therefore the entire room with the screen -- in the process. That time has come to an end; Netflix has finally launched "Just for Kids" on the iPad.

  10. New iPad App Is Next Best Thing To Touching Einstein’s Brain, Unfortunately Costs Ten Dollars

    Who among us hasn't wanted to poke Einstein's brain at some point? It's every nerdy kid's dream, as well as a really good way to get kicked out of some pretty classy archives. Thanks to a new app from the National Museum of Health and Medicine Chicago, anyone with an iPad and some kind of morbid inclinations can gawk at the brain that changed modern phsyics -- and in HD, no less! The catch? It's going to run you a couple of shekels to do so.
