iPad 5 vs the Spacetime Continuum.

Just saw this headline on another site:

"iPad 5 Release Date Closer?"

Now, I'm no genius, but I'd have to say yes; unless somehow we've all become enmeshed in some kind of temporal anomaly in which time is flowing backwards. But seriously, what's your prediction? I say we're within 45 days of the big announcement.

Anything is possible and Apple is less predictable with Jobs no longer around, but I think they will be better off making only one update per year. I think the iPad 4, which was a minor update to the iPad 3, was mostly introduced for the sake of kicking off the lightning port and perhaps also to reset the iPad release calendar to Fall from Spring. But who knows...

It will be magical. It will be "the best ipad we've ever made". It will have a grid of 4 columns of icons. It will have a 2048x1536 pixels, 9.7" screen. It will have a lightning connector at the bottom. It will be thinner (magically so), and narrower (more magically so).

There, sorry for the spoilers.

Psssh, I have a 7x8 setup with my jailbreak, I wish I could add another row though, it'd make it a lot easier to have everything on one page.



And yes, I use ALL those apps on my screen everyday.

That's not Jobs-approved. You'll be excommunicated.

Why? Is not being an Apple fan at birth not enough for them?

I would actually say it is quite the opposite. The only unpredictability factor, is the recent reshuffling of high level staff.

Just what I was going to say, but not everyone is clued in on how easy it is to create folders on the iPad, which is hardly surprising considering the iPad comes with one button and no instructions to speak of.

To create a folder, connect the iPad to iTunes via your PC or Mac, then simply drag one app on top of another and give a name to the folder that results.

On an iPad you can create folders simply by dragging one app on top of another. No need to hook to a computer or anything else. A folder is instantly created that you can rename if needed and then you can drag other apps to the same folder if you wish. The folder will remain as long as there is an app in it but if you drag them all out it will disappear.

I know how to make folders. They aren't very usable though. I forget where I put things since some things can be considered as multiple categories. I get lost in all the icons too because I can tell what app is what based on their icons, but all the folders look the same and the text blends in with everything since the labels are pretty small.

You have to connect your tablet to a PC to make a folder? Seriously?

No, you don't have to connect your iOS device to a computer.

But you can do it in the iTunes interface when your iDevice is connected to the computer. It is definitely not the easiest way, however.
