Seventeen Million Activations on Xmas


It was certainly a very merry, electronic Xmas. According to a recent Flurry Study, 17.4 million activations took place on December 25 for iOS and Android devices. This was up an incredible 332% increase from the daily December average and more than doubled from last year's total. More tablets were activated on that date than phones and iPads dominated the category. The
KindleFire HD
did well, too. Check out the entire survey for more details.

iPad and iPad mini to Finally Arrive


While Apple finally unveiled both the iPad mini and the 4th generation of iPad, it remains to be seen how well they deliver as the mini white has already sold out. Those who pre-ordered from the Online Store will undoubtedly see a delay and those who still want them are camping out at Apple's retail shops. Those who get them in their eager little hands will have at least four days of play before standing in line at their local Polling Place.

Apple Aids Students and Authors


Apple has always included students in its fan base and we can still remember when the first computers in school were Macs. These days they are hoping it will be the iPad that makes the proverbial grade with iBooks, with over 20,000 educational apps for teachers to take advantage of.

And for writers who want to self publish, the free iBooks Author is a fairly simplified tool that uses copy/paste for text or importing from a Word or Pages document. Drag and drop images and use included widgets if desired.

So no more excuses. Go write the next great American (or international) novel. After completion convert to PDF or peddle it in the iBookstore.

Steve's Legacy - iPads Everywhere


It seems that iPads are becoming quite handy in the grand scheme of things. Schools in New York City, Chicago, California and Virginia will be incorporating them in their curriculum. Eighty nine disabled voters in Oregon will be first to vote on the tablet, and soon it will become statewide. Even sports teams are getting in on the concept as both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Baltimore Ravens use them for playbooks.

The iPad is finding its way into the medical community as well. They can be used for electronic medical records, physicians keep track of medical records and patients long distance and med students utilize them. Undoubtedly, this is only the beginning of its future on the planet. Steve would be proud.
