Apple iPad and iPhone News

For Apple iPad news, check out All Things Digital (better yet, download it from the Apple Store and read it on your mobile device).

In addition to the iPad, All Things Digital covered the latest scoop on Apple's announcement for iPhone OS 4.0.  Several key developments are coming:
  • Will allow non-Apple application multi-tasking
  • New Game Center, a social network for iPhone game players
  • iAds advertising for iPhone apps (Steve Jobs says they "won't suck" and will make iPhone app developer lots of money)
  • iBooks--the iPad book reader--will be available for the iPhone

And while you are there, don't miss the Nitrozac and Snaggy comics.

Of course, it is a little ironic for ATD's iPhone app to have one article about Apple not supporting Flash on the iPhone followed by their own news article that actually tries to use Flash.

Also, for several years I led the US technical services teams within Cincom Systems' ERP software product group and the Midwest custom software services arm of Xerox.
