This is pretty cool, real life Batman’s turbine powered Batmobile. Casey Putsch have built a real Bat Car and it is powered by just Turbine, which is supposedly how Batman in Comic powered his car. Suprisely, the central dashboard and GPS is actually Apple’s iPad. It will be cool if Batman really uses just iPad for his Batmobile
I’m not too sure why is it called back to school promotion, as we all know parents hate their kids to play games, and worse if schools are back! Of course, EA is putting up sales because they don’t want kids to be overstressed due to school reopen. A little sale can be good, as you can let your kids play abit of games, while studying hard.
Remember, All work no Play will bring you no where! So, check out EA’s Back to School Sales here. iPad and iPhone Games are discounted up to 80%, a pretty good deal.
If you have read our previous on iCloud now on Beta, you would have know that Apple have launch iCloud into its beta state. All developers are now able to try out iCloud.com, not just with iCloud.com’s Web Apps, but also from iOS 5.
This is huge, as now iOS devices, Macs and Web are almost integrated tightly. This is not Apple’s first implementation of it. Previously they had came out with MobileMe. Of course, wasn’t too successful, but with iPhone and iPad’s popularity, the demand for cloud syncing are growing too. Thus I feel that Apple have put in a lot of effort in making this cloud storage and sync as useful and as fast as possible.
Sync-ing from iOS iWork to iCloud is pretty fast!
Video below shows that iWork documents are sync into iCloud in just seconds after creation, and it is constantly pulling the changes up into the cloud. So you virtually don’t need to save and will have a copy of your document pulled from iPhone/iPad to iCloud. This is pretty neat.
I can imagine a use case like I was working on my document on my Macbook Pro, but I need to rush off to work. I don’t need to save a copy of the document and send it to my email, so I can download it from my iPad. I can just access iWork app on my iPad and will have exact same copy of the document while I’m commuting to work.
Check out the video below for a demo of iWork on iCloud:
What will be your reaction when you see an iPad head girl walking down the street? I would be surprised like the guys in the video. Of course, this is Cosmo for guy’s publicity, as they launch their new iPad App. You will realize it at the end of the video, where a guy sat infront of the lady and browsed the magazine app on her face.
What is cool is that the girl is actually holding a camera inside her purse, which live feed to a pair of video glasses that she was wearing, enabling her to walk without issue. Else I’m sure she will be banging to lamp posts or trees. Pretty neat idea. Do check out the video.

Apple just launch their new iPad TV ads – We’ll Always. Reminding us iPad have changed the way we use our computers, laptops and tablet.
So how have iPad change your workflow?
Pulled off from the narration in the ads –
We’ll never stop sharing our memories…or getting lost in a good book. We’ll always cook dinner and cheer for our favorite team. We’ll still go to meetings, make home movies, and learn new things. But how we do all this will never be the same.
One of the most important App that is still missing on iPad till today is Facebook App. Currently, we can only get Facebook for iPhone/iPod Touch, but there is no native app for iPad. Although u can say that you will still have a very nice browsing experience on mobile Safari on iPad, but nothing can beat the customization and viewing experience on an native App.
Facebook for iPad is finally coming to App Store soon?
MG Siegler from TechCrunch actually found out that Facebook for iPad might be launch very soon, but I kid you not, an executable Facebook for iPad is already on your Facebook App for iPhone! So if that’s the case, then it might be a universe app for Facebook.
Overall the view of the App seems very clean and cool, I already love the UI of the App even before using. Let’s hope that we won’t have to wait too long for it to be launch, I’m kind of tired of using 3rd party apps which don’t really run as good as the one that I got on my iPhone.
More pictures below, or you can visit TechCrunch for all the screenshot of the app.
iPad is not a laptop/desktop replacement, but alot of iPad users are really using their main machine lesser and lesser. Of course it is due to the snappy iPad, fun Apps and it is just so simple.
Family iPad? How to manage?
I recently bought my mom an iPad 2, and she is loving it. Not only loving it, but she is already a gamer! So one of the issues in iPad is that although it is kind of a family iPad, thus everyone is sharing it. But it doesn’t not have any account to differentiate the users.
iUsers – Ability to add users to iPad!
For example, I like to read on flipboard, iBooks, tweet and check my emails. But my mom do light gaming, Facebook and watch video. So one of the problem is I can’t customize the home screen according to my liking. Not anymore. Pedro just release a new cydia hack for jailbroken iPad users – iUsers. You can now have users account on your iPad just like any Mac or PC.
Pretty cool yeah? Do check out the demo video below and let me know what you think about it?
Comex who came out with Jailbreakme.com previously is still one of the easiest way you can jailbreak your iOS devices. You simply just need to open up Safari on your iOS device, be it iPad, iPhone or iPod Touches, and go to the url jailbreakme.com. Slide to jailbreak and after a few minutes, your iOS devices will be jailbroken.
iPad 2 jailbreak with Jailbreakme
It is a break through, and Comex is now planning to relaunch Jailbreakme.com for iOS 4.3.3 and below. Yes you might say they are late in the game, you can already jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 with redSn0w or pwnagetools. But Jailbreakme is reportly able to jailbreak iPad 2, yes iPad 2! The long awaited iPad 2 jailbreak might come in 2 weeks time.
So stay tuned and let’s hope we can see jailbreak for iPad 2 as soon as possible!
