Whether we’re talking about its features (or lack there of) or giggling over its name, the iPad continues to be the talk of the town from Silicon Valley to bumpkin BFE to Silicon Alley.

This is a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black.
Nintendo President Satoru Iwata had this to say about the Apple iPad, “It was a bigger iPod Touch” and that it delivered “no surprises.” Umm. Correct me if I’m wrong, Iwata-san, but isn’t that exactly what the DSi XL is? I initially pooh-poohed the iPad, but it …

Yes, the iPad is a ginormous iPod Touch with a tweaked UI, but it’s still pretty cool. It’s surprisingly lightweight and the screen is just as responsive as the one on the iPhone and iPod Touch. What’s more impressive than the large 9.7-inch touch-screen is the speed with which Web pages get rendered and how well it’s able to scale …

It’s an exciting day for Apple fans across the globe as we all wait with bated breath for Steve Jobs to take center stage at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco for the tablet reveal. It’s a shame that Terry McGraw spoiled all the fun on CNBC last night. Oh well. I’m still excited to see what all the fuss is about and I plan on …
FULL LIST: Start the timeline here.
The week leading up to any Apple announcement is filled with speculation and alleged “insider info” that comes from “various sources” that seemingly come out of the woodwork. But how are we to know what’s fact or fiction? Are stories of the “Apple Gestapo” and controlled leaks true? …
And so begins our on the ground coverage of Apple’s upcoming “Latest Creation” event in San Francisco. I just stopped by the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and they’re just now starting to set up the exterior. Poked around a little bit but everything is locked up pretty tight. Didn’t see anything on the inside worth taking photos of …
In a rather long-winded story published by the WSJ tonight this week, a handful of new facts have been revealed about Apple’s purported iSlate/iTablet/iPad. You know, the one that’s supposed to be announced next Wednesday in San Francisco. I’ll save you the trouble of reading the whole thing because we’ve mostly covered it all on …
I’ve been around long enough to know that every rumor – no matter where it comes from – cannot be trusted regarding any upcoming Apple products. The venerable John Gruber (who has a proven track record) says carriers aren’t privy to Apple products ahead of time and that he’s heard nothing about a webcam on the tablet.
Until Apple PR begins sending around press invites to the purported January 27th (or is it 26th?) event at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco, I’m inclined to keep my trap shut about the slate/iSlate/tablet/Yeti.
However, it appears that I’m unable to do so thanks to France Telecom exec Stéphane Richard who confirmed to …
FULL LIST: The Best of CES 2010
As you can imagine it’s hard to cover a conference like CES — the Consumer Electronics Show which wraps up Saturday in Las Vegas — on your own. Actually, it’s impossible. This is the stuff that I consider to be the best of the best (anyone remember that movie with Eric Roberts?) or – at the very …
