iPad is Kicking Butt and Taking Names

iPad is Kicking Butt and Taking Names
The iPad is doing all sorts of butt-kicking right now, and it’s taking away from the laptop market.

Yet Another Moleskine iPad Case - But This One is Different
We’ve covered quite a few Moleskine styled iPad cases here on Apple Gazette, and they all seem to work the same way. Put the iPad in a black leather binder, put in a few cutouts, and make sure you’ve got a fancy black rubber band to complete the look. First off, the Treegloo iPad case Read more…

Do We All Really Want Touchscreens on Everything?

Do We All Really Want Touchscreens on Everything?
[Image via Engadget] When the iPhone first came out, people were shocked by the on-screen keyboard. “It won’t work,” they said. “It won’t be accurate,” they said.
