Every member of parliament will get an iPad Air 2

 iPad Air 2 Review The Apple iPad Air 2 meets these requirements and is competitively priced when compared with similar models. Every single member of parliament is set to get a brand-new iPad Air 2, as part of a huge hardware refresh, which will also see them receive new laptops. The new hardware will be distributed to the MPs after the general election on May 7th. Although the move is set to cost £200,000 per year (including the cost of SIM cards), John Thurso, who represents the commission, has said that iPads are “linked to a programme to reduce hard copy printing in favour of online publication that is already delivering savings in excess of £3 million per year. These savings are expected to grow further in the new parliament.” Video About iPad Air 2 The move is not something that all MPs are happy with. Chi Onwurah, the Labour Shadow Cabinet Office minister, raised some concerns about the provision. According to The Express, Onwurah said, “As we saw with Nigel Mills and Candy Crush, MPs will be using the games, and the iTunes and other features on the iPad.” While that’s true to a degree, Android tablets also have games, while MPs will still have their phones. Laptops, too, can also be used to play games. In short, all technology can be used inappropriately, but there needs to be a policy in place to deal with people that go too far.

iPhone 7 release date, price and specs rumours

iPhone 7 Review If there’s been one reliable thing about Apple’s iPhone launches, it’s that they happen just once a year. Not so this year, if you believe a report from StableyTimes, which claims that this year Apple will stagger its launches, releasing both new handsets. In 2014, we were lucky enough for Apple to launch not just its best iPhone yet, but its two best smartphones, with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. As good as it was to finally have some proper choice in the line-up, the truth is that the phones just whet our appetites for what the company could do next. It should come as no surprise that we’re now in full-on rumour mode, sifting through all of the information to find out what the company has in store. Video About iPhone 7 In this article, we’re focussing on the iPhone 7, which will be a big change from the existing handsets and have all of the new technology. Given Apple’s usual release schedules, we’ll see an updated version of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus this year, but not a phone with a brand-new design. That means that it’s most likely that we won’t see the iPhone 7 until 2016; for this year’s launches, read our iPhone 6S rumours. There are some websites stating that the iPhone 7 will launch this year instead, replacing the iPhone 6. However, we had a similar set of rumours before the iPhone 5S was launched, with people saying that the phone would be the iPhone 6. History, of course, proved that to be wrong and we had the iPhone 5S followed by...

Report says, Apple to add Force Touch to next iPhone

Next iPhone The new feature would allow your phone to respond differently depending on how hard you touch the screen. Apple may bring its new Force Touch feature from the MacBook to the next iPhone. Unveiled at the Apple Watch event on Monday, the Force Touch feature incorporated into the new 12-inch MacBook brings pressure sensitivity to the trackpad. That means you can trigger different actions depending on how much pressure you apply to the pad. That same feature could pop up on the next generation of iPhones, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday, citing “people familiar with the matter.” Specifically, the sources said that Apple is planning to add the feature this year, though that isn’t a guarantee it will show up. Assuming the information is accurate, however, the feature seems to at least be on the table. Video About iPhone 7 Force Touch sounds like a natural for a touch-driven device like the iPhone. Currently, you must use different gestures to navigate the screen. For example, you need to use a two-finger swipe to zoom in or out of the screen. On the MacBook, Force Touch can detect the difference between a light tap and a deep press. Adapting that for the iPhone could eliminate the two-finger swipe, allowing you instead to employ a deep press to zoom into the screen. Read more Source: Lance Whitney Image Source:Yutaka...

New iPhone app to make browsing addicting images easy from Imgur

New iPhone app The popular image sharing site is launching a new iPhone app on Thursday that reimagines the experience of browsing through its massive collection of photos, GIFs, and other images. “The new iphone app is beautiful,” Alan Schaaf, Imgur founder and CEO, tells The Verge. “It’s just absolutely beautiful and the best browsing experience for Imgur period, that exists.” “We started on the thing we thought was absolutely most critical, and that was the browsing experience.” Video About Imgur The new app isn’t much like Imgur’s website. Instead of seeing a grid of tiny images that you might want to click on, you’re presented with what’s essentially an endless row of cards, each with a picture and a title on them. You swipe side to side to see more pictures, and if you’re interested in one, you can tap in to view and make comments, like or dislike an image, or favorite something for later. It’s a really easy way to start browsing what can otherwise be an intimidatingly large collection of images with no obvious entry point. The app defaults to sorting images by what’s currently “most viral” on the site, which should make it easier to find something entertaining. For more dedicated users, the app also offers a section of random images and a feed of new submissions, which tends to include an inordinate number of Alison Brie photos.

What to expect from Apple’s March 9 event

Apple’s March 9 event On March 9, Apple is widely expected to let us know exactly when its much-anticipated Watch line will ship and how much all the new models will cost. But what other new products might Apple unveil? With Apple sending out invites for its time-themed ‘Spring Forward’ event on March 9 in San Francisco, it’s a certainty that the company will fill in the missing details on its new Watch line, which it unveiled back in September. We know the Watch will start shipping in April and will start at $349 in the US for the aluminum-and-glass Apple Watch Sport, with prices elsewhere yet to be announced (a rough conversion would be £220 or AU$380). However, we don’t know what higher-end tiers of the watch will cost, or what accessories will be priced at. The midlevel stainless-steel Apple Watch — with its sapphire crystal-covered display — is bound to cost significantly more, while the 18-karat-gold Apple Watch Edition could climb to price levels associated with fine jewelry. Brace yourself. Video About Ipad Plus We should also get a sneak peek at new Watch apps that will be available at launch — or close to launch — and perhaps get a firmer commitment from Apple on the Watch’s battery life. But the big question is whether Apple will reveal anything else new besides the Watch, which in some ways is old news. At most of its events, it usually launches more than one new product and sometimes several, and we expect it will do the same this time. Here’s a look at some of the possibilities: Read...

A rumored Apple iPad Stylus

Apple iPad Stylus Apple iPad Stylus Rumors A rumored Apple iPad stylus could point toward business ambitions, bigger tablets. Find out more about it here. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs didn’t like the idea of a stylus for mobile devices, famously decrying, “if you see a stylus, they [the developer] blew it.” The post-Jobs Apple may have a different view on the stylus, according to one analyst. Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities says Apple is likely to release a ipad stylus in the spring to complement the long-rumored “iPad Pro,” a purported 12.9-inch slate. Kuo, who is reputed to have deep contacts within Apple’s supply chain, based his analysis on Apple’s patent filings and his own research, according to Apple Insider. Video About Apple iPad Stylus Why this matters: Although Kuo’s report is well within the “rumor zone,” an Apple-made stylus isn’t all that crazy and doesn’t seem impossible for even the 9.7-inch iPad. We’ve been reviewing styluses for Apple’s tablet for almost as long as there’s been an iPad. Clearly, there’s a desire among at least some users to put pen to glass. Also, the iPad has always been a popular device for the workplace, where greater amounts of handwriting or drawing may occur. The iPad’s popularity as a business device is poised to grow along with its computing power. Apple’s partnership with IBM to build enterprise-specific apps is also likely to increase the iPad’s presence in the corporate world.
