Google Chrome Tablet

The New York Times has confirmed a Google device is in development, and reports that CEO Eric Schmidt will base his tablet on the Android operating system. The company has already had secret discussions with a few publishers to work on delivering content to the future tablet.

Geohot Jailbreaks Apple iPad With Blackra1n

Just a few short days ago, iPhone Dev-Team member MuscleNerd demonstrated an initial porting of the Spirit jailbreak by @comex to the iPad. Now George Hotz (aka Geohot) is working on his blackra1n software to jailbreak the iPad.

Seen in the blog photo are blackra1n and Cydia icons (as some have pointed out, probably just a mockup) on Gehot's iPad screen. Proving that he's making progress, Geohot posted keys for the iPad 3.2 firmware and bootrom on his blog with a one-line comment reading, "This is more exciting than a lot of you realize." Only a day later he revealed that "verbose iPads look cool" and tweeted the picture below.

Convert Your iPad to a Netbook With LapDock

Soon you can get the best of both worlds, or just fool your friends. The iPad LapDock is a simple case that makes your iPad look like a netbook. We all know the iPad is a touch-screen tablet, but what if you want a physical keyboard? The Apple Keyboard Dock requires a table. How to type comfortably while the iPad is on your lap?

Apple iPad Accessory Lap Dock

iPad LapDock integrates your Apple wireless keyboard and iPad into one unit. Pictured above, the keyboard and iPad are safely nestled into the LapDock, giving it the familiar mobile computing form factor. The top can even be closed like a real netbook, protecting the iPad and wireless keyboard inside.

Review: Worth Ave. Group iPad Insurance

After dropping several hundred dollars on an iPad, most users will be interested in protecting their device. Apple's tablet is designed to go anywhere, however this also means a high level of risk for breakage, theft and even water damage. The obvious way to protect the iPad is to purchase a case or cover, however this is not a full-proof solution.

The included iPad warranty from Apple will protect against manufacturing defects, but AppleCare doesn't cover broken touch screens, vandalism or theft. Statistics show that most tablet and laptop computer failures are due to physical damage.

Worth Ave. Group provides insurance policies to cover a wide variety of adverse events that could happen to your iPad, including theft. AppleCare will not cover any damages from handling, much less damage from fire, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes or lightning strikes.
