The famous Candyshell makes it way onto the iPad at a price of $50. The Candyshell, by Speck, is an iPad case that goes well with its other iDevice brothers. The sleek design makes you want to actually chew on your iPad, please don't. Only problem I really have with this case, is that it makes your iPad a little heavy which kicks off the balance a little bit, but it is still a great case.

Mobile Entertainment has a story today about Yahoo's by-all-accounts excellent new sports app for the iPad called Yahoo! Sportacular HD. The app has been developed by Yahoo following on from its acquisition of US social sports company Citizen Sports, and is available to download for free here.
The app enables the sports fan to follow live games and stats, check scores and game times with just one tap, track games in real-time with play-by-play action, and find out when the match you want to watch will be on TV. Leagues and sports available include all the ones that you'd expect, including MLB, NFL, and NCAA Football.
Of course with it being a big sporting time of year in the US, with football starting this week, there are several other sports apps around, including ones from CBS and the NFL itself, according to Mobile Entertainment, but this looks like a pretty good one and is already getting mainly positive reviews in the App Store. Plus, it's got a cool name!

Hot on the heels of yesterday's strong rumour (and now even stronger, following on from this news!) that Target will be stocking the iPad in time for the holiday season, Best Buy has announced today that it will expand availability of the Apple iPad with Wi-Fi, and Wi-Fi +3G models, to all 1,093 US stores from September 26th. The press release announcing the move made a point of mentioning that Best Buy is a "preferred channel partner" for the iPad. Here's what Wendy Fritz, senior vice president of computing at Best Buy, had to say about the announcement:

"Technology is becoming more and more personal, and our customers say they really value visiting a Best Buy store to touch and try the iPad for themselves. We're delighted that we'll soon make that opportunity available to everyone who'd like to come see us, and experience this device in any Best Buy store nationwide."

Engadget has received some insider information from a mysterious "tipster" that might point to the fact that retail giant Target could start selling the iPad this holiday season. And Engadget's evidence for this theory? Well, the tipster has seen a list featuring a mystery product that has six different versions, that is due to go on sale on October 3. Engadget also has several photos of a Target PDA that shows that the item numbers of said six different versions of the mystery product have prices that exactly match those of the six different iPad versions. And, it's also listed that the item will be stocked in the Digital Audio section, which is where e-readers such as the Kindle are sold, as well as iPods. All sounds very convincing, and Target stocking iPads sounds like a very wise move, both for Target and for Apple! Engadget says that they're keeping an eye on the story and will report back if any more evidence is unearthed.

[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGmRKSds9OY]YouTube - New Kindle Pool Ad[/ame]
Amazon has come up with an advert that was just shown on Good Morning America today, according to CrunchGear, featuring a poor hapless iPad owner sitting next to a bikini-clad Kindle owner. The iPad owner can't read his screen because of the glare and all, but the Kindle owner, she's just so smug because she's able to read in direct sunlight, and, her Kindle only cost her $139. Take that, iPad user!
It's a fun little ad, and they do have a slight point I suppose, but then the iPad user can solve the problem easily enough by slapping on an anti-glare screen protector, or using a folio case to shield the iPad from the sun, whereas the Kindle owner might have a harder time sending email, browsing the web, playing games and using software such as Pages on her Kindle! Maybe they should have had a third person there reading an actual book saying "this only cost me $10! I win!"

[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ZeoQ_sViVI]YouTube - My iPad iBuddy (Steve Young Football My Buddy Spoof)[/ame]
It’s always good to feature a football game or two to tie in with the start of the football season, and what makes the new Steve Young Football game for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch even more worthy of a mention is the really silly YouTube trailers for the game, such as the one above. I thought it was only me that hugged my iPad like that! Anyway, cool adverts aside, the game is the first iOS device app from developer Vaporware Labs, and it brings fast, finger-controlled action to the gridiron, with players getting the chance to control Super Bowl XXIX MVP and Pro Football Hall of Famer, Steve Young, as they drive down the field to collect stars, avoiding the many dangerous traps and pitfalls in their path, such as land mines, tornadoes, teleporters, pinball bumper, running pigs and so on!
Steve Young Football takes the action of pro football and combines it with fast-paced arcade action, creating a new type of game that mixes up “paper” or “flick” football with tower defence-style gameplay. Players control Steve Young by placing their finger on the screen and moving him around the backfield. Once Steve is lined up, players flick their finger, firing Steve towards the star and across the goal line to score. There are more than 80 levels in total to be unlocked via single-player gameplay, with four distinct themes: traditional football, classic video game, space and horror.
The game also offers unique one-on-one action with a live opponent, as two players take turns setting up obstacles on the field and running Steve past them to score. More obstacles and enemies for the multiplayer game can be unlocked in the single-player campaign, and the game makes inventive use of the iPad’s wireless capabilities by enabling players to place two iPads next to each other, instantly doubling the size of the playing field available.
Steve Young will be donating 100% of his proceeds from the game, and Vaporware Labs will also be donating a portion of their proceeds from the game, to Forever Young, Steve Young’s foundation that helps children with emotional, physical and financial difficulties. You can find out more about the foundation at ForeverYoung.Org.
You can download Steve Young Football from the iTunes App Store for $4.99/£2.99 for the iPad version and $0.99/$0.59 for the iPhone and iPod touch version.

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfFfqMR6uK0"]YouTube - Get the new Newsday iPad application[/ame]<o></o>
Check out this really clever ad that’s featured on the New York Times’ Bits blog, which shows how there’s still one way in which the iPad is inferior to a printed newspaper - it makes a really lousy fly swatter! The ad is actually for Long Island and New York City newspaper Newsday’s iPad app, and features a man enjoying reading the app at his breakfast table, before attempting to swat a pesky fly with it, only to find that smashing your iPad down hard on a table isn’t actually a very good idea. It makes me wonder whether or not they used a stunt iPad though, as I thought iPad screens were supposed to be tougher than that? I hope I never get to find out if mine’s that easy to smash! Bits points out that the Newsday app has many useful services, such as offering Long Island news, local sports scores, and the chance to scroll through local live traffic cams, but unfortunately it’s totally useless when it comes to swatting flies!<o></o>

Two research bodies in the UK, City University London and The Stroke Association, a charity that does a lot of great work for stroke patients and stroke prevention in the UK, have revealed that they are holding trials and tests using the iPad and the Nintendo Wii to help stroke patients with aphasia language problems to communicate via gestures rather than words.<o>
</o> According to a report on eWeek, the project , entitled “Gesture Recognition in Aphasia Therapy” (or GReAT), will last for the next 18 months, with a prototype being tested on members taken from 30 of The Stroke Association’s Stroke Clubs in the London area. Patients involved in the study will practice making gestures, and will then be able to access instant feedback and become more proficient with their gestures via constant repetition of the moves. <o>
“Gesture tracking and recognition technologies are becoming a ubiquitous part of new computing and gaming environments, ranging from Apple’s touch-screen iPad through the handheld Nintendo Wii Remote to Microsoft’s forthcoming Kinect for the Xbox 360,” Stephanie Wilson, senior lecturer in HCID at City University told eWeek. “Whilst popular in gaming, we will evaluate the suitability of such technologies in aphasia rehabilitation.”
eWeek reports that UK government agency, The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, is helping to fund the project. <o></o>
