1Password for iPad: Should Be in iPad App Store Day 1


Great news from Agile Web Solutions today – they have got their 1Password for iPad updates submitted to Apple within the deadline for being in the iPad App Store on launch day.  So if it doesn’t hit any Apple review roadblocks, it should be in the store for Day 1.

The pricing for 1Password for iPad is $6.99 – but the options for 1Password Pro and existing users of it and their cost for the new app get a little confusing (to me anyway).  Hit the jump for details …

Apple Email Confirms iPad Ready for Pickup at Store, Separate Line for Reservations


Now that’s an item I’m happy to see in my Inbox! Apple is sending out confirmations this morning to those of us who’ve reserved an iPad for pickup at an Apple store on launch day.

The email is short and (very) sweet, and I got mine a short while ago. It confirms that my iPad will be ready to collect at the store this Saturday. 

It also confirms that there will be a separate line for those with reservations, and that I need to pickup the iPad by 3:00PM on Saturday – after that iPads will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

It’s really not long now. :)

iPad Reactions – History Repeats Itself?


Good comic from coregeek.net.  I guess that’s the guy from the ‘Get a Mac’ ads saying it’ll fail each time, or maybe Bill Gates after gaining some weight since stepping down at Microsoft. :)

Thanks to Eric at Coregeek for sending it to us.

Best Buy to Have Very Few iPads to Sell on Launch Day


It looks lime your local Best Buy store is not going to be the best place to grab an iPad on Launch Day, April 3rd.  TUAW has the scoop on the very limited supply of iPads each Best Buy outlet will have:

Planning to skip the Apple Store crowds and sneak over to one of the 670+ Best Buy stores that will be selling the iPad on launch day? Better get there early, as each store will be limited to 15 iPads in stock, and those WiFi-only iPads will be evenly distributed among the three price points.

So they’ll have only 5 of each iPad model. Yikes.  I’ve always felt better about going to an Apple store than anywhere else on a big launch day – they always seem to have more stock and to be a lot better organized.

Any of you all planning to try a Best Buy store?

Recommended: Mike Cane’s Sneak Peek at the iPad’s iBookstore


Mike Cane is a real books guy.  Books are his thing, as he says. He’s got two very good posts up at his iPad Test site offering his thoughts on the iPad’s iBookstore, after getting a recent sneak peek at it, and highlighting some unexpected free titles in the fledgling store.

He’s got lots of good insights and screenshots, covering everything from pricing levels (which he points out may well not reflect what we’ll see when the store opens) to the rather clunky sorting options offered in the Free Books section.
