Apple iPad

Since the announcement if Apple iPad, there have been many negative comments all over the world, from the name, to the design and hardware. Is the comments justifiable? Let me do some quick analysis.

1. iPad, eyepad, maxi-pad or iTampon? Why did Apple, for all it's brilliant, uses such a controversial name? And due to the name, there will be a lawsuit from Fujitsu. It's all about marketing ploy. With all the jokes around the name, does it helps that the iPad is all over the places?

2. The design with the large black borders. Then again, with a 10" size tablet device, you need to hold on to it and not mess with the multi-touch in the display. With the borders, it helps that you can comfortably holds on to the device on your crouch.

3. No webcam? It's a let down but come to think of it, how many times have you use your webcam for video conferencing? I have done that less than 5 times on my iMac and MacBook. And many of my friends are in the same boat as me. They tried it once or twice when they got their webcam new, then chuck it aside to collect dust.

In fact, I have come to term with the iPad after my initial disappointment. It's a brilliant device that serves a purpose well. I will come to that in my next write-up.

It looks like a traditional watch with a glance at it. The cool thing about having an Android Wear is that you have access to tons of cool watch faces.

You must be wondering how do you connect your Android Wear to iPhone and get access to third party watch faces. The Android Wear iOS app provided by Google provides access to some limited selection of watch faces, you can't use any of those that are out there on the internet developed for Watch Maker or Facer.

Why iPad

A lot have been said about the iPad, you would have already know what it have or have not. Just to re-cap, the iPad does not have USB port and webcam, it does not support java and flash. So why iPad when all these supposedly standards are not included?

First of all, iPad is not a computer. It's not intended to replace your PC or laptop. It serves as a in-between for your phone and PC. It's give you the convenience of instant start to your surfing habit, reading emails, ebooks, watching movies etc on your bedside, by the pool or on the plane, anywhere you can think of including your bathroom.
