The iPad is known as a great media consumption device for kicking back on the sofa to surf the ’Net, watch videos and read electronic magazines, but with a little effort, an iPad can be transformed into a powerful media creation device as well.

Control Your Universe with the Sony Tablet S

Universal remote controls are not new and exciting pieces of technology, but what if you could control your TV, Blu-ray player, stereo and cable box with an app built into a tablet computer? If this sounds compelling, the only tablet that’s capable of this is the new Sony Tablet S.

Using the iPad 2 As a Game Controller

The demo is eye-popping. Hold an iPad 2 in front of an Apple TV, download Real Racing 2 HD and suddenly the tablet becomes a telemetric steering wheel.

Sharing and Displaying Photos during the Reception

Since weddings are quick paced, one-shot events, backing up your image files as you work is imperative.

(Always carry spare cards in your kit.)
