It's the perfect game if you love chess but hate waiting.

If you've been watching the FIDE World Chess Championship match between Vishy Anand and Magnus Carlsen, you know that chess isn't necessarily fast-paced.

No, Kids Who Use iPads Won’t Have Smaller Vocabularies

Arm your arms tired? Because this claim is pretty huge stretch.

A study was done that used MRI scans of the brains of 27 adults to determine that humans learn new words better by hearing them than they do by learning them visually. One of the authors of the study then told the Daily Mail that it means children who use iPads will learn fewer words than previous generations. Nope. It does not.

Someone is Suing Apple Because the Internet Has Porn On It, Yes Really [Video]

We're shocked -- SHOCKED -- to discover that there's porn on the Internet.

Despite Apple's strict draconian anti-porn policies, the Safari browser on the iPhone and iPad remains one of the best porn apps available for Apple's mobile devices. That's because it connects to the Internet, and there's porn on the Internet. So. Much. Porn. Tennessee lawyer Chris Sevier is suing Apple because he accessed porn on his Apple device. He's even submitted a bizarre YouTube video to support his case.

U.S. Patent Office Tells Apple Adding “Mini” to Something Doesn’t Justify New Trademark

Trademarks are important so that companies can keep people from stepping all over their brand, and few companies have their products as uniformly branded as Apple. They have the iPhone, iPad, iMac, iEtc. It made sense that they tried to get a trademark on the iPad mini, but they were denied one by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office which said the addition of "mini" was merely descriptive."

Radio Buttons Found in Jailbroken iPad Files May Signal New Incoming Functionality

Apple products like iPhones and iPads getting jailbroken is nothing new, but sometimes this freedom also leads to interesting discoveries within the digital bowels of these gadgets. Such is the case with a series of buttons within the iPad Music app found on jailbroken iOS 6.1 iPads by 9to5Mac. If these buttons are indicative of the future and not some leftover vestige of a former direction, it looks like some kind of radio functionality will be coming to the iPad.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
