LG CEO’s Slip Supports Retina Display for iPad 3

http://www.pdfdevices.com/lg-ceos-slip-supports-retina-display-for-ipad-3/

Samsung and LG have been the two considerations for Apple’s next tablet production – iPad 3. Both companies have the kind of display technology Apple would want to use on its third gen tablet. The scales tip in LG’s favor as far as winning this deal goes because of the legal unpleasantness that’s only getting worse between Apple and Samsung.

Rumors of an iPad 3 (or iPad 2 Plus) and an iPhone 5 coming out as early as this September have been going around for a while and there are talks of a boosted display on the next iOS tablet. In a meeting with reporters from Korean Times, LG CEO Kwon Young-soo let out an important point with the statement “more smartphone manufacturers will release new models employing LG’s ‘Retina Display’ that has been used in iPhones and iPads.” Now we know that’s true for iPhone but when he says iPad we can only think he means the upcoming tablet.

Young-soo also criticized Samsung for misleading the market with its OLED display promos saying that the displays are not suitable in terms of picture quality, response time, energy consumption, and contrast ratios for smartphones and tablets.

Rumors of an iPad 3 in September have changed somewhat with the possibility of an iPad 2 Plus or iPad 2 HD that could come with doubled up resolution of 2048x1536p and higher 256dpi, targeting the professional segment. We don’t think Apple will have the Retina display on a bumped up iPad 2 model.  iPad 3 would be our bet.

Apple has slammed a lawsuit on Samsung for copying its tablet and smartphone design with the Galaxy lineup of smartphones and tabs. Samsung is giving back as good as it gets and things are fast reaching melting point. Does this mean Samsung and Apple will no longer be partners? They’ve managed to not let legal troubles get in between their business proceedings till now but with the way things are going, who knows.

Mission Fuge part one

Hi! everyone. How are ya’ll? I’m fine just dealing with some family problems lately and got I got to think about some stuff I did last year that I shouldn’t have, but any way like the title of today’s posts says I’m going to be talking about Mission Fuge. Yes, I will being going to Mission Fuge this year with the youth group I’m in and we’ll be heading to South Caroline. This is going to be an interseting, but kind of scary because I’ve only been out of state once in my life and I was to young to even remember what happened.( I was two at the time) But yea like it says in the title this is part one and hopefully if I dont forget I’ll do a part two at later date. I guess thats about it for this post so please leave a comment and tell me what you think about my posts or if you went on a mission fuge before tell me how was it.

Bye

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – Endeavour blasted off on NASA’s next-to-last shuttle flight, thundering through clouds into orbit Monday morning as the mission commander’s wounded wife, Gabrielle Giffords, watched along with an exhilarated crowd estimated in the hundreds of thousands.

NASA is winding down its 30-year-old shuttle program before embarking on something new. The event generated the kind of excitement seldom seen on Florida’s Space Coast on such a grand scale — despite a delay of more than two weeks from the original launch date because of an electrical problem.

The shuttle quickly disappeared into the clouds.

“That was four seconds of cool,” said Manny Kariotakis, who was visiting from Montreal. The 50-year-old got goosebumps watching the liftoff with thousands along Highway 1 in Titusville.

Just before launching, commander Mark Kelly thanked all the who put hands “on this incredible ship.”

“It is in the DNA of our great country to reach for the stars and explore. We must not stop,” said Kelly, who also thanked “all of the millions watching today.”

Remarkably, Giffords made a return visit to see Kelly off. She is still undergoing rehabilitation in a Houston hospital to recover from a gunshot wound to the head in an assassination attempt little more than four months ago.

The Arizona congresswoman was shielded from the cameras on launch day, as were the families of the other five astronauts. All watched the liftoff in private.

Giffords has kept out of the public eye since the Jan. 8 shooting that wounded her and killed six in Tucson, Ariz.

She and Kelly said their goodbyes, face to face on Sunday.

With Kelly at the helm, Endeavour and its experienced crew of five Americans and an Italian are headed for the International Space Station. They will arrive at the orbiting outpost Wednesday, delivering a $2 billion magnetic instrument that will seek out antimatter and dark energy in the universe.

Up to 45,000 guests jammed into NASA’s launch site, and thousands packed area roads and towns to see Endeavour soar one last time. Only one shuttle flight remains.

VIPs included Apollo 11’s Michael Collins and four other members of Congress.

Advance estimates had put Monday’s crowd at 500,000, more than the number that saw Discovery’s final hurrah in February. Across the Indian River in Titusville, though, the number of spectators appeared to be down compared with Endeavour’s previous launch attempt on a Friday afternoon.

Titusville Assistant Police Chief John Lau guessed the crowd at between 350,000 and 400,000.

“I don’t know if it was the early morning or what,” Lau said.

Electrical trouble grounded the shuttle on April 29, disappointing the hordes of visitors, including President Barack Obama and his family. Repairs over the past two weeks took care of the problem.

“God Speed Endeavour We’re ready for you!” space station resident Ronald Garan Jr. said in a Twitter update. At launch, the space station was 220 miles high, just southeast of Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Kelly almost didn’t make the flight.

The 47-year-old Navy captain took a leave from training to be by his wife’s side after she was wounded, and it seemed unlikely he would stay with the flight. But Giffords improved and was moved from the hospital in her hometown of Tucson to Houston where Kelly lives and does astronaut training. Her days were filled with rehab work, and he yearned to see the shuttle mission through. A month after the shooting, he announced he would fly.

“Everybody felt that this was the right thing for me to do,” he said at the time. He added that his wife “is a big supporter of my career, a big supporter of NASA.”

He rejoined his crew in February, still managing to see his wife across town every morning and evening.

Giffords’ visit to Kennedy Space Center — the third time she’s seen her husband soar into space — ratcheted up the excitement level for what already was a big event, said launch officials.

Kelly’s identical twin, Scott, who’s also an astronaut, witnessed the launch with his two teenage nieces, Mark’s daughters from a previous marriage.

This is the 25th and final flight of Endeavour, the baby of NASA’s shuttle fleet. It was built to replace Challenger, destroyed during liftoff 25 years ago this past January, and made its maiden journey six years later to capture and repair a stranded satellite. That first flight ended 19 years ago Monday.

Endeavour carried the first Hubble Space Telescope repair team, which famously restored the observatory’s vision in 1993, and the first American piece of the space station in 1998.

It will end its days at the California Science Center in Los Angeles.

As of Monday, Endeavour had logged more than 116 million miles, circled Earth some 4,500 times, spent 283 days in space and carried 170 people, including the last two people to fly a space shuttle for the first time. American Mike Fincke and Italian Roberto Vittori are making their first flight on a shuttle although they’ve been to the space station twice, ferried their by Russian Soyuz rockets.

Fincke will team up with Andrew Feustel and Gregory Chamitoff for four spacewalks during the 16-day mission. It will be the last spacewalks conducted by a shuttle crew.

NASA’s last shuttle flight, by Atlantis, is targeted for July. After that, Atlantis will remain at Kennedy, where it will go on display at the visitor complex. Discovery will head to the Smithsonian Institution’s hangar outside Washington.

American astronauts, meanwhile, will continue to hitch rides to the space station on Russian Soyuz rockets. Private companies hope to pick up the slack, but that’s still years away.

Once Atlantis flies, it will be three years — at best — before Americans are launched again from U.S. soil. Some NASA observers fear it could be a full decade.

The White House wants NASA focusing on eventual expeditions to asteroids and Mars, unfeasible as long as the shuttles are flying given budget constraints.

Ohioan Stan Oliver made a last-minute trip for the launch. The assisted-living residence manager got a ticket to Tampa and then drove Sunday night to Titusville, where he slept in his car.

“This is a once in a lifetime event,” said Oliver, 41, who lives near Dayton. “It was worth it. The roar was intense. I’m glad I came.”

It’s ok to be exicted about the iPad 2 release but when it’s not ok when your getting into fights about it. Now I want ya’ll to tell me what you think. So go to the link above and read more and comment on this post.

http://www.joe.ie/tech/tech-news/ground-breaking-lawsuit-against-apple-over-iphone-and-ipad-location-tracking-0011735-1

So anyways Apple is being sued over the iPhone and ipad location tracking. It comes on the backing of the emergence of a report that came in last week. Apparently, two computer programmers say that Apple’s iOS4 operating system is recording latitude. There really isn’t any evidence to support this claim. It really isn’t certian that the company is even storing this information on databased owned by Apple.

Apple is apparently facing the “Mother of All Baclogs”. Everyone is asking why?

Apple sold 4.69 million iPads during the first calendar quarter, then there was a steep decline in the fourth quater during the peak of the holiday season. The news raised many eyebrows.

It’s difficult to characterize Apple’s iPad sales numbers as a shortfall, because the ipad 2 hasn’t been here for a year yet. So, read more about this and leave a comment.

iPad 2 in kindergarten classrooms: A good idea?

http://www.csmonitor.com/Innovation/Latest-News-Wires/2011/0419/iPad-2-in-kindergarten-classrooms-A-good-idea

Here’s a question is having the ipad 2 in kindergarten a good idea?

Well, a school districe in Maine approved a $200,000 initiative that would give each of its 285 kindergarten students a new hands-on tool: Their very own ipad 2. Their calling this a ” revolution in education”. Now I remember when I was in Kindergarten we didn’t get anything like the ipad 2. All we had were computers that are now out of date.(I was in kindergarten in the late 90’s)

This isn’t the first time that Maine became an early tech adoter. In 2002, Maine was the first state to give out laptops to middle school students and later high school students as a part of a move to boost literacy.

Now please read more and please comment on my post.

Kids Are New Target For iPad 2 Sales

http://www.itproportal.com/2011/04/19/kids-new-target-ipad2-sales/

Ok, this is what I found on google today. Kids are the new targets for ipad 2 sales. Toy’R’Us just began to ssale the ipad 2. Toys’R’Us has become the 8th  authorised retailer of the ipad 2. This is very revealing on Apples part because it shows just how far Apple is stretching out. It’s likely to have the same price, but you may have to pay alittle bit more if you want the smart cover.(Sorry) 😦 Despite being a new ipad 2 retailer, the short supply has effect Toys’R’ Us  has been effect also.(sorry again) If you want to read more click on the site above and tell me what you think.
