iPad account for 0.03% of all web traffic in its first week

leave a comment »

This is pretty sick. 0.03% is a small number, but think about how much web traffic there is in the WORLD. One small gadget creating all that buzz? insane.

TSA: netbooks, iPads and small gadgets can stay in the bag

leave a comment »

The Transportation Security Administration has blogged this week (yes, they have a blog. who doesn’t?) stating that travelers need not remove their netbooks, iPads, e-book readers and other small gadgets from their bags when going through airport security.

Only gadgets that are the same size as a “standard laptop” (idk what that means, but lets assume 12″+) must be removed from their bags for screening.

Will it blend?

with one comment

All these iPad smashing videos are getting ridiculous. But this one is actually kind of creative. Don’t worry. It only takes 2 minutes of your precious time.

Price Anchoring, the iPad, and why we’re all fools

leave a comment »

Mint.com has an interesting article on price anchoring and how it applies to the iPad. In short, price anchoring is showing an inflated price and then announcing a lower price. In the iPad’s instance, Steve Jobs stated that the iPad was rumored to be $1000, but when he announces the price of $499, you think you’re getting a deal.

Apparently, we’re all susceptible to it and the smarter you are about pricing, the easier you fall prey to it.

Apple to hold iPhone OS event on Thursday

leave a comment »

A little late on the news, but the Vicious Blog was a little slow yesterday. Apple is going to be holding an even on Thursday at 10:00AM PT/ 1:00PM ET to show a “sneak peak of the next generation of iPhone OS software.”

From what sammyVicious can gather from the rumor mill, it looks like the new OS is going to focus mostly on the new iPad, but this event should be interesting enough. I mean, its Apple.

iPad releases TOMORROW

leave a comment »

The tablet that EVERYONE’s been talking about is finally coming. Apple will be shipping pre-ordered tablets to homes tomorrow and will also make a limited supply available at Apple stores, Best Buys and other Apple Authorized retailers.

A limited group of tech enthusiasts were given first dibs at the product and gizmodo was nice enough to post a chart summarizing their thoughts.

And surprise, surprise!!! David Pogue has good things to say about it!!! (sarcasm)
