Seems that the talk of iPad immolation may be premature

"In the past year I have received numerous emails asking the best and easiest way to go about designing ‘apps’ for classes etc. The question varies depending on what type of functionality they desire, however for anyone looking to build an app that links together content from multiple web sources such as RSS Feeds, YouTube videos, twitter accounts etc then I am recommending two tools to get this done in a matter of minutes."

The New iPad Review | TCGeeks

The New iPad Review | TCGeeks | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it
All the new iPad reviews are so wordy you can't tell what's good or bad about the new iPad.

Even though they didn’t fix the screen so you can view it in the sunlight, you can see the difference with the new pixel count. The screen has some very remarkable improvements. However, it’s pretty much the same size as the old iPad 1 but weights more than the iPad 2. If you go from iPad 1 to the new iPad, you will see a difference but not if you go from iPad 2.

iCloud, Not the New iPad, is Apple's Real Key to the Post-PC Revolution

iCloud, Not the New iPad, is Apple's Real Key to the Post-PC Revolution | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it

"Apple's new iPad goes on sale today. People - already lined up around the world - will likely buy more than a million of them this weekend, and tens of millions this year. And there will be much talk about Apple's "post-PC" revolution.

But the real key to Apple's post-PC dreams - slipping past Windows and becoming the dominant consumer electronics platform for the decades ahead - isn't this new iPad, or any single gadget.

It's actually iCloud, Apple's cloud service and storage platform, which doesn't get the respect and attention it deserves."

Making the Case for Student Controlled Devices - iPads in Education | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it

Sam Glicksman writes a great post on student controlled devices in schools.
"Whenever I discuss iPad or BYOD implementations in schools one of the first issues raised usually revolves around problems associated with management and control. iPads are difficult to manage on an institutional level. That could be a blessing in disguise. Maybe it presents us with the right timing and opportunity to finally allow students to manage their devices and develop their skills as independent and responsible learners.
