Turn your iPad into a Macbook Pro

iPad Macbook Pro

If you are a hardcore iPad user who can’t live without iPad, but still prefer physical keyboard to be more efficient and love the form factor of Macbook Pro, you are in luck. Japanese retailer Rakuten have came out with an iPad case + keyboard which like a smaller size Macbook Pro.

All in one Case for iPad

The case contains a built-in Lithium-polymer battery which can charge your iPad, a USB port, mini USB port and a bluetooth keyboard which can be connected to your iPad. Price of it is around USD$75 and is currently only available in Japan. But honestly a case that have battery, bluetooth keyboard, USB and mini USB port, it is a great deal. Plus it looks very nice.

It is built for iPad 2, but it should work fine with the new iPad as phyiscally the difference is small. If you wish to get it, you can check out rakuten.

Apple will stream Paul McCartney Concert live to iTunes and Apple TV on Feb 9!

Apple will be streaming Paul McCartney’s Concert Live via iTunes and Apple TV on February 9 2012. You will be able to view the concert via iTunes on your Mac/PC or on your Apple TV on your TV.

Paul McCartney will commemorate the release of his new album, Kisses On The Bottom, with a free streaming performance that takes place 7 p.m. PST Thursday, February 9, from Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, where much of the new album was recorded.

Kisses on the Bottom, which comes out Tuesday, February 7, via Hear Music/Concord, is a collection of standards McCartney grew up listening to, plus two new McCartney compositions — “My Valentine” and “Only Our Hearts” (which feature guest turns, respectively, from Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder).

Recorded with the aid of Tommy LiPuma and Diana Krall and her band — who will back McCartney for the Capitol live-stream event — Kisses On The Bottom is a personal journey through songs that, in some cases, a young McCartney first heard his father perform on the family piano.

The February 9 Capitol Studios streaming event will be the first time ever that the reverent and adventurous performances of Kisses On The Bottom will be brought to life in a live setting

I think it is pretty cool. You can check out this concert here.

 


Apple’s Educational Announcement on 19 Jan New York City

Apple has sent out invitations to media for an education focused event on 19 January 2012 which will be taking place at Guggenheim Museum New York City. They aren’t hiding from the press, it will be education related.

Thus what we will be seeing from the event will most likely be textbooks available in Apple’s iBook Store. Although it might be not be so interesting for the rest of the world, as there will not be no new product launching, but textbooks coming to iOS will be huge.

This will push iOS devices mainly iPad to be the number one go to for education sector.

Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5 is coming soon [Video]

Chronic Dev Team is almost done with their very last part of touching up with iOS 5 Jailbreak. It has been close to 2 months since the launch of iOS 5 and iPhone 4S, but till date, only tethered Jailbreak is available.

If you don’t know the difference, tethered Jailbreak means that everytime your iPhone got restarted, you have to connect it to a computer and go through the jailbreak process to boot up the iPhone. Thus untethered Jailbreak is actually very important to most people, as we are worried we won’t be with a computer when our iPhone accidentally needs restart.

pod2g tweeted:

Tons of questions from my nice followers. Too early to answer. Will work on iOS 5.0.1, will try iPad 2 and 4S after others are ready.

So it seems that iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users will have to wait awhile longer than the rest of the family to enjoy untethered jailbreak.

Check out the demo of untethered jailbreak from Chronic Dev Team:



HP’s Chairman uses Apple Macbook Air

This is one of the most amazing photo I have seen so far in Tech world. HP Chairman of Board Ray Lane is actually a Mac User. Apple is one of the most important competitor of HP’s Business, but HP’s Chairman himself is using Apple’s Macbook Air 13 inch!

I really don’t know what he is trying to convey, but I really can’t believe he even allow this picture to be taken and posted on reuters. At least now we are sure Ray Lane is someone who know what a good computer should look and feel like.
