Apple will hold an event on april 8th at 10am covering the future of iPhone OS. Will iPhone users finally get multitasking? What other improvements might be included?
The iPad hit the stores yesterday and I guess every tech-related website is working on a review right now. A few are done already:
engadget did a very comprehensive review which covers every aspect of the device. Click here to read it.
While being a bit less structured than the review by engadget, the review by SLASHGEAR is still very good and extensive as well. Click here to read it.
This is not really a review. TechnoBuffalo rather did two mini-reviews covering the aspects typing and web browsing on the iPad.
Today, my RSS reader was full of posts regarding the first iPad reviews which hit the web. They usually were small one-sentence-reviews. The following two videos were the only moving pictures I found. While the first is just a (very) quick unboxing, the second video is a nice walkthrough through the major features of the iPad. Enjoy!
Martin Schirrmacher, a german developer, just released a working port of Fennec (Firefox Mobile). Motorola Milestone and Droid users can click the link below to download it (I am not sure if it is working on other Android devices. It might be compatible with all Android 2.0+ phones.).
Note: It’s a 11 MB file and takes up 41 MB when installed. The UI is working but is very laggy.

"A machine is any device that uses energy to perform some activity. In common usage, the meaning is that of a device having parts that perform or assist in performing any type of work. A simple machine is a device that transforms the direction or magnitude of a force without consuming any energy. The word “machine” is derived from the Latin word machina, which in turn derives from the Doric Greek μαχανά (machana), Ionic Greek μηχανή (mechane) “contrivance, machine, engine” and that from μῆχος (mechos), “means, expedient, remedy”.”

I was about to set up a post about Apple starting to ship preordered iPads today but both the blogosphere and twitter are nothing but a big can of spam regarding that topic right now. So I came across this video and decided to show it to you. It’s a quick run through the iPad App Store and reveals some details like remakes of iPhone classics and App pricing (which seems much higher than the iPhone equivalents). Enjoy!
I fell in love with this game when I tried it on a friend’s iPhone. It has just been made available for Android phones via the Android Market:

"HD is not a universal title for iPad apps, some developers are instead choosing “XL” to denote their iPad version or simply creating a universal build so that both the iPhone and iPad versions are contained in a single app."
PadGadget published a list with some specific titles and TechnoBuffalo did their best to complete it:
Note: clicking one of the links just leads to an error stating that “the item you’ve requested is not currently available in the US store.”
