West Lafayette, Indiana – McCormick Place Apartments in West Lafayette is offering new residents that sign a lease in September 2010 and move in within the next 30 days get a free iPad. Wow! The apartments are $400 a person + utilities for a 4 bedroom and no application fee or administrative fee. I guess that is where they are getting the money to afford iPad’s for new residents. This is the first apartment complex I have heard of that has offered residents free iPad’s but I would like to see more. iPad’s seem to be catching on, on college campuses for Example I have seen quite a few walking around on Purdue University campus. If you have heard of other places giving out iPad’s like apartments let me know.read more
Twitter has officially launched their Twitter App for the iPad. Now I know there are other Twitter Apps for the iPad so why should you get this one, let me tell you.
The new Twitter App just looks amazing and allows you to navigate Twitter differently than before. For example, in your time line you can just pinch a tweet to expand it and collapse it. Also if you touch a tweet that has a URL in it, a window will slide in next to your time line and load the web page. If you simply touch a normal tweet it will open up the users profile and actions you can perform on that user for example: follow, share, mentions, favorites, tweets, and lists.read more
Recent rumors point towards a November release for iOS 4 on the iPad. These rumors if true do coincide with Steves Jobs statement at WWDC stating that iOS 4 would be available in the fall for the iPad. Remember these are still rumors, no official announcement has been made by Apple yet.
However I cant wait to try out multitasking on my iPad :D.
STRATA has released results of their 2nd quarter survey. The results showed that mobile advertising is on the rise and that nearly 1/3 of advertisers are focusing on mobile ads.
With Apple’s launch of the iAd network, and Googles venture into Admob this would make a lot of sense. The report shows that the iPhone ranks at the top with 87% of clients interested in advertising on the iPhone, Blackberry and Android at 30%, and iPad at 26%. It would make sense that the iPhone would have the largest share of advertising considering it has been on the market longer than Android and iPad, but we are not sure what to say about Blackberry.
Another note, the survey reported that TV advertising may be on the rise with 72.5% of agencies interested in digital TV advertising. However advertising on TV is still down 16% from last quarter but the interest alone may be all it needs.read more
