TJ Maxx is Selling the iPad for $399!

No comments:



Some TJ Maxx locations are selling the iPad Wi-Fi 16GB for only $399, according to an Engadget tipster.

Our tipster Aaron sent us these pics he took of a 16GB WiFi iPad that he found at a TJ Maxx in Vernon, NY -- and not just because they're going for a relatively reasonable $399. We made a couple phone calls and found some at stores in Ohio and New Jersey (including one who said they were holding their stock back for Black Friday) while we struck out in other parts of the country.

Severe VOIP Bug Found in iOS 4.2?

No comments:



Line2, a popular VoIP application for iOS devices, has sent an email to its customers warning them of a bug in iOS 4.2, according to MacRumors. Apparently if the app is running in the background, the bug causes the ringer continuing to ring even after a call is answered.

Attention all Line2 iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad users:

Please do not upgrade to iOS version 4.2.

If you upgrade to iOS 4.2 and you are running Line2 in the background, the ringer will continue to ring even after an incoming call is answered. This affects Line2 as well as all other VoIP and social calling apps. (Note: If you do not use Line2 your Toktumi service will not be effected.)

Apple Developer Support is aware of this issue and has designated its status as 'severe'. However, as of the most recent iOS beta (GMSeed build), this issue is still not resolved. We apologize for this inconvenience and will update you as soon as we get more information from Apple.

Line2 will continue to work as normal with your current operating system. We strongly encourage you not to install iOS 4.2 until Apple fixes the upgrade issue. We will send out an email update as soon as it is safe to upgrade.

Sincerely,
The Toktumi/Line2 Team

Its unclear if this bug is addressed iOS 4.2.1 which was recently released to developers.

No comments:



Readdle has announced the release of PDF Expert for iPad 1.5, the latest version of its cutting edge application for working with PDF documents. The update extends PDF annotation capabilities for the iPad users, adding the ability to sign documents, fill in scanned PDF forms and type text directly onto the PDF file, in addition to the existing markup annotations. All changes made with PDF Expert can be viewed with Adobe Acrobat Reader, Preview or other compatible applications.

The new version adds text fill-in feature to annotation functionality. This allows users to type text directly on PDF file, and even makes possible filling in scanned PDF forms right on the iPad. PDF Expert 1.5 lets iPad users sign PDF document with their own handwritten signature. Contracts, agreements, statements can be immediately affirmed with the stamp signature and sent back via email or shared through cloud storages.

"Thousands of people receive important documents that need to be signed or filled in and sent back. Typically you would print out the file, use the ink pen to make necessary changes and then either fax or email the scanned document." said Igor Zhadanov, Readdle CEO. "PDF Expert lets you go paperless, by doing all of this right on your iPad, which is faster, greener and more secure."

Pricing and Availability:
PDF Expert for iPad 1.5 is $4.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies), a free upgrade for existing owners, and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category.

Woz Says He Was Misquoted! [Audio]

No comments:



Woz says that a recent article in De Telegraaf misquoted his thoughts on Android. The article reported Woz as saying, "Android phones have more features". Woz told Engadget that was not the case.

Woz says he gave the De Telegraaf reporter a lengthy demonstration of voice commands on iOS and Android, pointed out that Android offered the ability to say "Navigate to Joe's Diner," and suggested that Apple would catch up through its purchases of Siri and Poly9. According to Steve, that's about it -- he says he'd "never" say that Android was better than iOS, and that "Almost every app I have is better on the iPhone." Woz did say he lightly prognosticated that Android would become more popular "based on what I've read," but that he expects Android "to be a lot like Windows... I'm not trying to put Android down, but I'm not suggesting it's better than iOS by any stretch of the imagination. But it can get greater marketshare and still be crappy."
