Gadget Watch: I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for the iPad!

Apple releases it’s latest must-have gadget–the iPad–in just 3 days!

The iPad is a “tablet computer”, similar in appearance to the new electronic readers such as the Kindle and the Nook, though in terms of functionality I have heard it aptly described as a “giant iPhone” (Get it? AP-tly? “There’s an ap for that…” Okay, it was a stretch.)

And while the iPad undeniably posseses that certain intangible gotta-have-it je ne sais quoi, I am still unsure as to why there is a market for a portable tablet computer. Isn’t that what laptops–and not to mention the iPad’s smaller ancestor, the iPhone are for?

Whatever your feelings on the iPad, the fact remains that this inexplicably craveable gadget will be hitting the shelves in T-minus 3 days and counting. Will YOU buy one?

Invading Your Privacy? There’s An App For That.

Having an iPhone is cutting edge–but is it slicing into your privacy?

It’s true. More and more iPhone users who have downloaded free applications have been receiving calls from the application vendors hawking paid versions of their complementary apps.

While Apple does not share customers’ information with these vendors, Dan Moren from Macworld.com says it is “possible—even easy” for the applications themselves to extract phone numbers from users’ devices.

iParty – Apple to Host 09/09/09 Soiree

CNet tells us that Apple has announced that they will be hosting their annual musical event next Wednesday, September 9th at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, CA.

Due to the coincidental timing–The Beatles’ remastered digital albums and Rock Band video game are being released that same day–there are rumors swirling that Apple may finally be releasing a Beatles catalogue for iTunes, especially since Apple is breaking tradition by planning the event for a Wednesday as opposed to their usual Tuesday.

CNet will be liveblogging the gala affair, so even if you didn’t get an invite (invitations were sent out Monday) you can get all the buzz as it happens!
