When the iPad was released in 2010, it created a market for tablet computing that simply did not exist before. Initially, most iPad owners used it as an Internet consumption device; a clever new means for browsing, watching videos, checking email, playing games, and interacting with their online life.
Today Apple announced the completely redesigned fifth-generation iPod touch, a brand new iPod nano and the iPhone 5, most of which run iOS 6, the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system. The displays on the new devices are remarkably larger, yet they’re all thinner and lighter than before.
It’s no secret that you get more bang for the buck with a network printer, but sharing has been mainly limited to computer users. Now, anyone who carries an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet can print wirelessly to an increasing number of Wi-Fi enabled printers.
Sometimes you wish you could save a temporary image you see on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. Well, it’s not necessary to point a camera at the screen. Simply keep the Home button pressed as you also quickly press the Sleep/Wake button as if it were the shutter button on a camera. The screen will blink. Whatever you see on the screen (including an image you’ve enlarged), will be captured to the Photos/Saved Photos folder.
With its front- and back-firing cameras, improved Retina display, A4 processor and new OS, the new Apple iPod touch is like a futuristic science-fiction gadget that traveled back in time to the year 2010. It's got all of the desirable improvements found on the iPhone 4, without the commitment of a contract or the annoyance of a telephone.
If you took the last generation iPod nano and sliced it cleanly in half with a laser, you’d wind up with one new iPod nano and one new iPod shuffle… or at least something that resembles them. The new Apple iPod nano is a screen with no click wheel—and the new iPod shuffle has buttons.
