iPad_3GSince the initial release of the iPad, it has been a widely held belief that the enterprise user would eventually define the path in which the iPad would take in the future. Today, it looks like this is happening.

According to the WSJ, businesses from all over the States are putting iPads into use as the iPad gains further momentum into the world of the enterprise. The single biggest reason is the design of the iPad caters to the need of the business user.

Multifl0w Is Multitasking Done Right http://www.cooltechzone.com/2010/08/24/multifl0w-is-multitasking-done-right/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=rss http://www.cooltechzone.com/2010/08/24/multifl0w-is-multitasking-done-right/#comments Tue, 24 Aug 2010 13:30:25 +0000 Ravdeep Hora http://www.cooltechzone.com/?p=20372

With the latest release of the iOS for iPhone users, one might think that the needs of those looking for viable multitasking have been all but solved for everyone. Sadly, this is hardly the case.

As reported by 9-5 Mac, there is one option that without question, gives iOS the kind of multitasking ability that should have been enabled by default. This tool is called MultiFl0w and it is nothing short of awesome. Like many apps worth having however, your phone must be jailbroken and running Cydia to access it though. But once installed, MultiFl0w will change the way you look at multitasking in the mobile space forever.

Android’s Dirty Little Secret http://www.cooltechzone.com/2010/08/24/androids-dirty-little-secret/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=rss http://www.cooltechzone.com/2010/08/24/androids-dirty-little-secret/#comments Tue, 24 Aug 2010 13:00:24 +0000 Zeeshan Khan http://www.cooltechzone.com/?p=20369

Android has been argubly, the only thing keeping the world free from becoming an iPhone/iOS only kind of space. Love it or hate it, this is a simple fact needing to be accepted. Despite this, there is one dirty little secret that Android holds that may lead people to looking at it a bit differently.

TechRepublic reports that  as great as Android is, there are some things you may want to know about Android. While still more open than the competing iOS, the above linked article indicates that Android is basically handing back control over things to those “evil” telcoms everyone is always complaining about.

Like most people, I’ve been waiting anxiously awaiting the Samsung Galaxy Tab and any new details I can find on it. The 3G-capable Android tablet was recently spotted in Australia.

According to Electronista, the Samsung Galaxy Tab boasts a 1GHz ARM processor and has been described as “awesome” and completely different that the expectations that come with the Apple iPad.

For years, videos games were console based for the most part, then later on high-end graphics allowed them to gain a stronger foothold in the PC realm. Today, PC games are a huge hit with loyal users all over the globe. Despite this success, Google is looking to push forth a real game changer in how people access popular video games.

According to 1up.com, Google is hoping to make the success of browser based games, a reality. Using a Chrome App Store and Google Checkout, Google provides a great video demonstrating how this kind of thing might come together.

Live TV Coming to the Apple iPad http://www.cooltechzone.com/2010/08/18/live-tv-coming-to-the-apple-ipad/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=rss http://www.cooltechzone.com/2010/08/18/live-tv-coming-to-the-apple-ipad/#comments Wed, 18 Aug 2010 18:57:46 +0000 Ravdeep Hora http://www.cooltechzone.com/?p=20359

It’s fairly clear by now that Verizon is dead set on gaining on AT&T through any means possible. If that means matching some of their services, so be it. And in other instances, this means copying services completely.

GigaOm reports that Verizon is looking to bring live TV to iPad users here in the near future. Unlike AT&T’s TV service over Apple Devices, Verizon’s live TV service is designed for FiOS subscribers and will bring the joys of live TV to users of the iPad.

Chrome OS Tablet, Coming Soon to Verizon http://www.cooltechzone.com/2010/08/18/chrome-os-tablet-coming-soon-to-verizon/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=rss http://www.cooltechzone.com/2010/08/18/chrome-os-tablet-coming-soon-to-verizon/#comments Wed, 18 Aug 2010 18:46:02 +0000 Matt Hartley http://www.cooltechzone.com/?p=20356

Despite Google doing great with their Android platform on various mobile phones, it feels like any tablet efforts with Android, have been non-existent. Now I think it’s possible that this is by design and shouldn’t be dismissed. Clearly Google is focused on Chrome OS for their tablet endeavors.

According to Download Squad, Verizon will be offering up a Chrome OS tablet of their very own, come this November. The tablet itself is being designed and built by HTC, so it should be interesting to see how it all turns out. The big take away is that sources believe that this Chrome OS tablet will be substantially cheaper than the iPad.

BlackBerry Torch, Now Sold at Discount http://www.cooltechzone.com/2010/08/17/blackberry-torch-now-sold-at-discount/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=rss http://www.cooltechzone.com/2010/08/17/blackberry-torch-now-sold-at-discount/#comments Wed, 18 Aug 2010 03:29:15 +0000 Matt Hartley http://www.cooltechzone.com/?p=20353

Where does the fault fall for a failed product launch? With the Palm Pre, I blame the pointless commercials, lack of feature descriptions and general lack of product focus. So does this also apply to the latest BlackBerry product as well, created by RIM?

CNET points out the brand new BlackBerry Torch, has been setup in flames due to a lackluster reception by the masses. So while RIM refuses to admit defeat as you can now already find the phone at a discount, it seems clear that this could serve as the final nail in RIM’s economic coffin.

7-Inch iPads by Christmas http://www.cooltechzone.com/2010/08/17/7-inch-ipads-by-christmas/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=rss http://www.cooltechzone.com/2010/08/17/7-inch-ipads-by-christmas/#comments Tue, 17 Aug 2010 19:42:36 +0000 Matt Hartley http://www.cooltechzone.com/?p=20347

iPad_3GWithout question, the Apple iPad has in many respects changed the way we look at computers and other portable computing devices. Even the iPhone hasn’t touched on the new areas being explored with the larger iPad. So how would one that is smaller, do for Apple fans?

PCWorld reports that Apple is looking to launch a smaller 7-inch iPad just in time for Christmas. Dubbed as the iPad 2, this smaller tablet computer is likely to appeal to those looking for iPad functionality with less size in hand.

With the success of the various Droid based phones from the Motorola Droid to the Droid 2, it is hardly a surprise to see Verizon wanting to take advantage of yet another Motorola success story.

BoyGeniusReport reports Verizon may be getting ready to offer up what is known to be the Motorola Droid Pro. The phone said to boast a 4″ display, 1.3GHz CPU, global roaming capability.
