Could this adorable, app-enhanced doggie be YouTube’s next pop star?

The music industry's backlash against Auto-Tune is well-documented, though it reportedly endures on countless CDs and on every episode of "Glee." LaDiDa isn't designed to be insidious; it's tech is actually quite cool. The user chooses a musical tempo and style, then serenades the iPhone or iPad. The app uses the voice to compose a melody. Think of it as karaoke in reverse.

Playbook toys with Apple’s onions

When the Apple iPad came out, I think I speak for most folks when I said, “Ooo, another premature Apple release!” (with emphasis on that initial bleat). This is because Apple, in my opinion, tends to push its products on us a little too early. Hence Blackberry’s confident stride into the same as yet tentatively-described ether; the Blackberry Playbook.

What do the iPad and Charlie Sheen have in common?

iPads have every right to be smug. They know we can't wait to fondle their sleek bodies. To them, we're a sure thing. They're Charlie Sheen and we're all just helpless bimbos, begging to be at their service in a way that only a TV show as base as "Two and a Half Men" can illustrate.

The not-so-new iPad stand: Apple brainchild meets great great great grandparent

The third-party gadget floodgates have opened and we're already becoming inundated with optional extras to help us play and adapt our new shiny toy. That's why this video caught our attention. Not only is it a novel way to display your iPad, but it's... kind of cool, with a hint of 'chindogu' madness likely to impress both early-adopters and luddites.

Do you have content you could monetise on the iPad?

Agius had an endearing story to tell, which involved him travelling to New York and adopting a series of fake identities to snap up 20 iPads on the weekend of the US launch, several months before the much coveted device became available to Australian early-adopters.

The iPad and other portable tablet computers: a milestone in the evolution of computing...

With the much-anticipated (and delayed) Australian launch of the iPad only four days away, David Moore looks to the past and considers whether there will be any real-world value in this new technology.

Monthly first Australian magazine to confirm plans to launch iPad edition. Should we be...

The media release was destined to arrive sooner or later. Who would be the first Australian print magazine to announce definitive plans to launch an iPad edition? The answer came today. Current affairs title The Monthly made the slightly self-conscious announcement that it "is believed to be the first Australian magazine to confirm an iPad edition ready for the tablet’s 28 May Australian launch, or soon after."

Alice In Wonderland on the iPad looks… enchanting

The iPad's lack of eye-friendly e-ink (found in specialised e-readers such as the Kindle or Sony Reader) has prompted many adult observers to conclude that it is not a serious reading device.

Could the iPad revolutionise coffee-shop meetings?

Sure. We've heard how the iPad will soon become a popular device for watching videos, reading online newspapers and downloading books online. But one really useful use of the iPad that has barely been talked about is its potential function as a presentation and meeting tool.

Your first look at the Apple iPad

But to keep your inner-early-adopter satiated until then, hear are a couple of user reviews from the crew at Mashable keen to share their tech-lust.

The iPad? Meh. The future of tech is touching yourself.

What comes after the iPad touch screen interface? Will we all soon be starring in our own private Minority Report? Enter "skinput": -- bio-acoustic sensing technology that allows the human body itself to be used as an input device. According to Carnegie Mellon University researcher Chris Harrison, different body locations give off "acoustically distinct" sound waves when touched, opening up a world of possibility for touching feely techies.

Netbooks: Money-savers or time-wasters?
