    Reports Say iPad 2 Will Have 512 MB of RAM and an A5 CPU

    Looking forward to hearing more details on the A5 CPU on March 2nd. Hopefully they go in depth about it and give some kind of performance benchmarks.

    The New MacBook Pro.

    I got hooked on SSD when I did my most recent computer build. I decided to go with SSD, even with the minor negative stuff I've read about them, and it was an excellent decision. I went ahead upgraded my HTPC to SSD and my MBP. Now when I use a regular computer, waiting for the bootup makes me...

    No flash on Xoom, it keeps getting better

    Japanese version of the Samsung Galaxy S. It came out here in October with Android 2.2 loaded already, I've got it rooted for Wi-Fi tether, but there's not a lot of support on XDA for it as far as custom roms go since it's a Japanese market phone. I really like it a lot, and with a few very...

    No flash on Xoom, it keeps getting better

    Oh, and just like the developers for the iPad jailbreaking have done, the XDA team of "hackers" will be having a lot of fun with the Xoom. It's already been rooted and unlocked so the devs are free to start making customizations to the interface, modifying the kernel (for things like...

    No flash on Xoom, it keeps getting better

    This is why I think the Xoom (and other future Android tablets) is a great thing. After a year of being with the iPad, those of us who do want the extra customization and the more complex user interface finally have a viable option. Ever since the first iPhone came out with it's "wall of...

    Apple iPad 2 - Big deal or not?

    I'm interested to hear about this rumored "A5" processor that is being reported it will be on the iPad2. Also, (rumors again) apparently it's going to have 512MB of RAM, this makes me think that nothing is going to change in the way iOS5 does multi-tasking, which is unfortunate. I'm still...

    No flash on Xoom, it keeps getting better

    I'm guessing due to the high price and low volume it didn't sell well. Most people online are saying their local Verizon and Best Buy stores only got a few each. I think once the price comes down (Wi-Fi version becomes available) I think sales will spike again, because by then most of the little...

    No flash on Xoom, it keeps getting better

    I can understand what you're saying but i think it's still the most complete option. It seems that most of the other upcoming tablets aren't quite as complete hardware-wise. Flash will be taken care of within a few weeks and the SD slot soon after that. It's not quite complete yet, but i think...

    iOS 5- what would you like to see for iPad?

    I knew it was too good to be true. You aren't the only one who thought that, every site that mentioned the battery size said the same thing.

    CONFESSIONS OF AN APPLE STORE EMPLOYEE: We Lie To Customers All The Time

    Unfortunately sometimes using sensationalist vocabulary is the only way to get people to read the article.

    CONFESSIONS OF AN APPLE STORE EMPLOYEE: We Lie To Customers All The Time

    It's simply an expression. Have you never said "all the time" even though you don't really do it ALL THE TIME? They don't mean it literally. Kinda like "I have to tell him the same thing all the time and he still won't listen!"

    No flash on Xoom, it keeps getting better

    I've had quite a few crashes during my time with the iPad, but nothing that makes me so frustrated that I would get rid of it for that reason alone. I've had Safari crash on me consistently once a day or so under seemingly normal use, normally while scrolling through a long page it will just...

    The New MacBook Pro.

    Install your own SSD. That is what I did to my 13" MBP. Now it boots faster than my iPad.

    The New MacBook Pro.

    USB 3.0 is legacy? LOL whatever you say. It's on about every new high end motherboard on the market.

    No flash on Xoom, it keeps getting better

    If you are going to buy one, or even just check one out today, if they try to tell you that you have to buy one month of 3G service with it, you tell them to jump off a bridge. Ask them to call their Verizon customer service rep and talk to them about. The policy just changed today, so some...

    No flash on Xoom, it keeps getting better

    No. You can buy it right now, no contract for $799. Or on contract for $599. I was gonna wait for the Wi-Fi only, but I'm impatient. Called my dad back in the US to get him to go pick one up for me and mail it to me.

    No flash on Xoom, it keeps getting better

    Where was there lag? This is the first I've read of anyone finding it laggy. Most have said screen transitions and web page scrolling are just as smooth (or smoother) than the iPad. Force closes, unfortunately, are a part of the "Android experience" much like crashes in Windows. Even the most...

    The New MacBook Pro.

    Glad to see they updated the 13" finally with some good hardware. Sad to see they are up to their usual crap and are being anti-USB 3.0 now just so they can push their "Thunderbolt" port. I understand it's business, but adding USB 3.0 is cheap now, so they wouldn't even have had to change...

    No flash on Xoom, it keeps getting better

    Oh, and the reports that HDMI doesn't work without a dock are false. Those reviewers must just not have known what they were doing. Seen three different owners say it works perfectly, exactly mirroring what is on the screen except the navigation buttons.

    No flash on Xoom, it keeps getting better

    They aren't developing for Motorola. This is a pure Google OS. The complete SDK was just released yesterday, now all the "small fry" developers have it in their hands so they can start developing apps for it. Google made a mistake (in my opinion) by not releasing the SDK earlier. The iOS for...

    Motorola Xoom Review: The First Honeycomb Tablet Arrives - AnandTech :: Your Source for Hardware Analysis and News This is the most comprehensive review I've seen of the 5 or 6 sites that have reviews up right now (sure to be 10x that by the end of the day). They give their opinions on things...

    No flash on Xoom, it keeps getting better

    The graph is a lie? LOL are you kidding? They use the EXACT same test on all of the devices, they browse exactly the same way on each one. Just because you got more battery life in a certain situation doesn't make their test a "lie." It just means you utilized it differently than they did. Do...

    No flash on Xoom, it keeps getting better

    Oh, and from later in that same review: For a battery that is physically half the size of the iPad's, it looks like Google has managed to have a much more functional operating system with much better hardware specifications, and ended up with much better battery life.

    No flash on Xoom, it keeps getting better

    What do most people do on their tablet the majority of the time? Browse the internet? I'd say that's a safe assumption, maybe mixed in with e-mail and video/music playback. If you want to see how the Xoom browser absolutely demolishes the iPad browser (really, I'm not exaggerating, it's a...

    iOS 5- what would you like to see for iPad?

    Well, that was 8.5 with data features like Wi-Fi and other stuff activated with the screen brightness at 65% while playing constant video. What Thphilli is saying is the physical size of the Xoom battery is half of what the iPad battery is. So that 8.5 hour play time recharges twice as fast as...

    Suggestion to slow down spammers.....

    Ok, it was just a suggestion for a feature I've seen on other sites to keep "direct spam posts" from being a big problem. They haven't been too bothersome, but lately I've seen quite a few of them. Mainly it just makes the moderators' job easier. Many active spammers won't bother sticking around...

    Suggestion to slow down spammers.....

    Add something to the code in the forum that makes it so you can't put a link in your signature until you have 15 posts or something. It's getting old seeing a response to a thread that says something like: "I agree! Brad and Angelina should adopt more babies and buy the iPad 2!" When it has...

    Looks decent, not a fan of the aux wire hanging out there though. Can't the iPad interface with bluetooth stereo systems?

    No flash on Xoom, it keeps getting better

    Everyone complaining about the price just doesn't understand what is going to happen and what ALWAYS happens (except for Apple). Normally when a product is released that is "hyped" or highly sought after by even a small group of people, the price will be higher. This allows the company to make...

    If you haven't followed Engadget for long I can understand your confusion. Even Engadget faithful followers will admit that they might as well rename the site iGadget instead as they are very biased towards Apple products. I decided to read over the review anyways, and it wasn't as terrible I...

    No flash on Xoom, it keeps getting better

    I hate to say this, as I even call BS when someone questions a review. But in this case, I won't take any review Engadget does on an Android based device seriously.

    Report: Apple to unveil iPad 2 on March 2

    Apple did say so. You can't get much more obvious than sending out an image of a calendar with the number "2" written big and bold with an iPad behind it. Are you really still doubtful?

    Apple has issued invites to the unveiling now, I'd say that's pretty official.

    iPad 2 Rumoured to Have SD Slot But no USB Slot

    So it will have a SD slot that will eliminate the need for the camera connection kit. But, the big question, how will it function? Can I download files to it from the web browser? Can I load movies on it and play them? Can I save files from my apps onto it? Or is it going to be in typical...

    No flash on Xoom, it keeps getting better

    It's obvious you've been following the iPad speculation and rumors, but your expectations are a little off. Apple has never historically released a product that had specs that "blew everything away." For computers and laptops they have actually been fairly behind, adopting everything about 6...
