The Tech Press Catches Up – iOS is Outdated and Boring

It seems that the tech press has finally come to realize what I have been ranting about for the last one and a half years. iOS is outdated in terms of functionality and boring in terms of aesthetics. In the last few weeks I must have seen at least 5 to 6 articles and a lot of tweets that are basically...

The iPad Mini

The iPad Mini is out, and the only thing I don’t like about it is the name. Sounds un-thought to me. Apart from that, there are only little annoyances that bother me based on what I have seen so far. The main annoyance is the fact that it looks like Apple will need to update this product pretty...

The Reign of the 7 inch Tablets

It’s finally happening. Common sense and practicality is clearing the fog caused by the introduction of a ground breaking device by Apple in April 2010.

Hopefully with the release of the new iPad and apple tv in the coming months, we will be treated to an update of iOS as well. I am hoping that Apple can address some of my pet peeves about iOS5 and improve upon some things. I am an iPad user only and do not own an iPhone. My wish list is for the iPad...

iPad Apps: Noteshelf

The iPad has been touted by many as a consumption device. People on the other side of the fence who say that it is a productivity and creation device generally have to go out of their way to make their point. At the end of the day it becomes quite clear that while the iPad may primarily be a consumption...

Mileage Tracker for the iPad

There is a serious lack of powerful and good looking mileage tracking apps for the iPad. A problem which is not faced by it’s sibling, the iPhone. Why this dearth of apps in this category exists is not something I can put my finger on. In an effort to use the iPad as much as possible, it is very...
