ipad 3 pictures The iPad 3 Will Have Haptic Feedback And Probably SenSeg Is Behind It

While the rumor mill gets active as the Apple event and the inevitable announcement of the iPad 3 / iPad HD, there is one rumor which is believable. We have seen how Apple has advertised next generation of the iPad, (We have something you really have to see. And Touch) and with the word “touch” we think it has everything to do with the exclusion of the Physical Home Button that has managed to exist on the otherwise one button Apple devices (the iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad). News is also rolling out that Senseg, a Helsinki based firm is probably giving the new iPad it’s button free existence.

The new iPad might just have Steve Jobs’ idea come true – and with Haptic feedback, already present across many mobile devices, we might just see it happen with the iPad 3. The reports have been detailed out across all notable blogs, including The Next Web, where Mathew Panzarino stated:

image thumb8 iPad 3 or As Some Say the iPad HD Releasing on March 16

Call me an Anti-Apple person (I am avoiding explicit words here) but the truth is that news of the next generation of the iPad is going to be called the iPad HD and not the iPad 3. iPad HD, HTC Desire HD, isn’t that a similar naming convention adopted by Apple rivals? Ones that Apple along with his fanboys detests so much? I thought these guys tried to do things a bit differently from the common and the usual, but they couldn’t come up with something different in terms of the name. After of course manufacturing devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad that boast remarkable architecture and hardware?

These are but rumors that have been circling the blogs minting hits out of the Apple products and the upcoming iPad 3/iPad HD. As for the question when is the iPad 3 releasing? The word is it will be announced today at the Apple Event and will be hitting the shelves on March 16 (not confirmed). As for the features include improving the Retina Display Resolution by twice the existing one. Other than it will also feature a quad core processor, LTE connectivity to name a few. We are waiting the releasing of this device and we are confident that it will be something BIG.

Apple recently went past the $370 billion in revenue and the company has definitely hushed many of its competitors and haters. We just thought we would share the infographics on what companies are smaller than Apple. While the infographic does make this look as if Apple is some Greek god and that no one has ever been so highly valued, it sums to be interesting overall. Especially when you have a country’s budget to compare with.

Following is the infographic on What Companies are smaller than Apple with thanks to Visual.ly.

iPhone Battery iPhone 4S Inefficient Battery Is A Software Problem

The diagnosis held by an iPhone app developer proves that iPhone is suffering from a chronic software problem. This test methodically proves that the much complained about battery problems are software based rather then hardware. Phew! a sigh of relief, well at least it can be cured rather then changing the over all hardware specs.

One was using beta applications to test while the other was a regular use iPhone with out any unorthodox applications.

123592314 Steve Jobs Biography Already Selling At Heathrow Airport In London Before Official Release October 24

Steve Jobs was great, so great that his death left a massive impact on every one around. To us Steve Jobs was more of a Mindset than just a man. Everyone who knew about the man, anyone who had ever used an Apple product. From the lovers of Macs to the iPod Touch, iPhone and the iPad, he gave everyone a reason to love their device and many more to own what he calls the rip off of Apple products (though I totally disagree with the last one). Steve Jobs book, the biography was certainly one of those that everyone anxiously waited for and with his death, the demand has grown by leaps and bounds.

iphone4slaunch iPhone 4S, Siri and Faster Browsing Shown In A Video

While the Apple product, the iPhone 4S has broken the record with 1 Million unit sales in just 24 hours we have first hand videos of the device as well. The video comes from China and shows the working of Siri and the benchmarks of the device.

The browser score for example on the iPhone 4S running the iOS 5 is 89567 compared to 44856 on the iPhone 4 running the iOS 5. Which is twice the score. This shows that the hardware overhaul has been very fruitful for the device and while it lacks the new design, it definitely wins the battle in performance. Though it is less than that on the Samsung Galaxy SII which has a 94.000 plus score and is half a year older than the new iPhone 4S.
