If you’re after a slick, carbon fiber iPad case, you’ll want to give this new case from DRO Concepts a look.
We are very excited to release our new carbon fiber iPad Case. The only real carbon fiber case available for the Apple iPad. Utilizing a proprietary lay-up of real carbon fiber that is not only incredibly strong but also ultra light (weighs 0.4 lbs). Like all of our carbon fiber products this case is crafted entirely by hand and provides a beautiful high gloss finish. Exotic yet sophisticated styling is topped off with an intelligent design that allows for easy access to the iPad while providing maximum protection. Each of our carbon fiber iPad cases is lined with supple neoprene for additional impact and scratch protection. Just slide the iPad in, close the secure strap, and you are on your way with one amazingly protective and sharp looking case. The iPad case will fit both the Wifi and 3G versions of the Apple iPad.
Man, BGR always seems to have some amazing insider sources. They’ve got a huge gallery of screenshots of upcoming iPad apps and the iPad App Store itself. The BGR guys say the shots look ‘absolutely delicious‘ and I wouldn’t argue with that.
One of the most clever interactive technologies I have encountered can be seen at mypoingo.com. A year of so ago I had the opportunity to provide my youngest 2 glorious OOH-n-AAH! filled days. We immediately fell for the quirky Poingo charm. So much so that we set out to buy her some of her own books. That’s when the magic started to fade. I soon discovered this singular experience to be truly rare indeed, as only a couple of titles were available. Continue reading →

The iPad Camera Connection Kit is now available to order via the Apple online store. It’s the last of Apple’s own iPad accessories to be be made available and is currently marked for shipping in late April.
The kit goes for $29, and I just ordered mine now. Interestingly, the kit still hasn’t got a pre-order link on the main iPad Accessories page – but you can order one by going here:
Yikes – I’m not a WSJ reader, but the rumored price point for the Wall Street Journal’s upcoming customized iPad version strikes me as quite high. I don’t follow their print and online pricing much either, but from what I can gather the $18/month iPad version (if that’s accurate) would be around twice as much as their current online subscription rate. One of the funny things about this is that the price rumor is from the WSJ itself.
There’s been lots of talk of the iPad as a ‘savior’ for the newspaper and magazine industry – and I think there’s likely a lot of potential for that to come true, but I also think publications are going to need to find the right price points for iPad readers. I am very anxious to see how other blue-chip titles get priced, and how the WSJ compares.
Any regular WSJ readers care to weigh in on that rumored price point?
More good news on the iPad iBooks app and reading free ePub titles from Project Gutenberg in it. It looks like many (or perhaps all) these free – and classic – titles are included in the iBookstore catalog. And of course they’re still free.
AppAdvice has got the scoop on this one:
If you’re not familiar with the Gutenberg Project, it’s a free online digital library supported by volunteers. This library already includes over 30,000 free eBooks from the public domain; it is an amazing popular resource.
Well, when checking out Apple’s iBookstore, I noticed that Apple has decided to include these directly. I obviously haven’t had the chance to count them, but it appears that the entire catalog is available for free download.
iBooks is sounding more and more like a killer app the more we learn about it.
