What you need to know about the Apple iPad

If you were following this morning’s Apple announcement, it may have been quite overwhelming and your head could be spinning in confusion. We’re here to clear things up and give you additional details over what we posted this morning. What we know so far is that the device itself, in terms of hardware and software, doesn’t disappoint. Out of the box, it can support every single application available in the iTunes App Store right now. There is a new version of iWork available for the iPad — with each application going for $9.99 (which means $30 for the whole kaboodle). The Wi-Fi only version will be available in 60 days, and the 3G and Wi-Fi versions in 90 days. Hit the break as we break it down for you!

How much would it take for you to risk your job at Apple?

How much is a killer story worth to you? A thousand? Ten thousand? It’s not uncommon for journalists and bloggers to pay for news and scoops, though it’s typically frowned upon (ironic since almost everyone does it). It should come as no surprise to anyone, even the non-tech folks, that the hottest story in the tech world right now is the Apple tablet.

Popping my CES cherry

Faithful and loyal Digitalia readers, I hope you’ll forgive the weeklong absence of content from the site, but I’m here to explain why. For six long, painful, exciting and stressful days, I was at CES – the Consumer Electronics Show (or what I prefer to call the “Clusterfuck Electronics Show”). Between the three major halls at the Las Vegas Convention Center, I walked at least 15 miles with about 30 pounds of gear slung around my shoulders and neck in order to get coverage for my home-away-from-home, Boy Genius Report.
