If you love your iPad, but want to add some extra protection and function to your tablet, read on! In this article we will be reviewing an iPad case which does just that. This case goes by the name ‘Alumni’ and is manufactured by Cygnett, a respected name in the iOS accessory industry.

Just days after Apple won an injunction barring U.S. sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1, Reuters reports that the same judge has issued a second preliminary injunction that would bar sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus smartphone. “Apple has made a clear showing that, in the absence of a preliminary injunction, it is likely to lose substantial market share in the smartphone market and to lose substantial downstream sales of future smartphone purchases and tag-along products,” Judge Koh said in Friday’s ruling. The new Galaxy Nexus injunction is a much more significant victory for Apple than the Galaxy Tab 10.1 injunction, as evidenced by the $95 million bond Apple will need to post in order for the injunction to take effect. The bond money, which amounted to only $2.6 million in the Galaxy Tab 10.1 case, would be used to compensate Samsung should Apple ultimately lose the case when it goes to full trial
Just after the launch of the Retina MacBook Pro earlier this month, AnandTech provided a first glimpse of the machine’s display performance, noting the various resolution options available to users and examining how its color and contrast compares to other notebooks. After having more time to analyze the new machine, AnandTech last week published its full review of the Retina MacBook Pro, bringing its thorough and technically-detailed perspective to the report.
In what should not be a surprise given Siri’s beta status and its use of new technology for voice interaction with mobile devices, a study from Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster finds that Siri’s abilities are still eclipsed by the traditional text-entry Google searches that have been in place for years. The study included presenting Siri with 800 queries in each of two environments, a quiet room and a busy urban street, and then assessing Siri’s ability to correctly interpret the queries and provide correct responses. Specifically addressing the outdoor testing, Munster notes: While Google comprehends 100% of searches, Siri was only able to comprehend 83% of the prompted questions on a busy Minneapolis street. In terms of answer accuracy, Siri correctly answered 62% of queries on the street compared to Google’s estimated 86% answer accuracy
Last November, Adobe announced that it was ending development of Flash Player for mobile platforms, opting not to optimize the plug-in for new browser, operating system, and device configurations. Adobe’s announcement came roughly a year and a half after Steve Jobs penned his “Thoughts on Flash” open letter outlining why Apple had decided not to allow Flash to run on its iOS devices. Now nearly eight months after Adobe’s announcement, the company is officially pulling Flash from the Google Play marketplace for Android for new users. Those users who already have Flash installed on their Android devices will, however, be able to continue receiving updates.
Over the past several days, Gizmodo has been highlighting freezing and crashing issues on several of its staff’s new MacBook Air models, linking the problems to Google Chrome. Switching to Apple’s Safari browser eliminated all of the issues, and thus the site recommended that owners of the new machines avoid Chrome for the time being. Google has now issued a statement to Gizmodo acknowledging that Chrome is the culprit and discussing the steps it is taking to address the issue. While Google has disabled some of Chrome’s GPU acceleration on an emergency basis as it seeks to deploy a permanent solution, the company has also filed a bug report with Apple as such issues should not be able to cause an entire system to freeze or crash. “We have identified a leak of graphics resources in the Chrome browser related to the drawing of plugins on Mac OS X
