Ep. 1153: BONUS - BOL's coverage of the Apple iPad event Video
We record right after Steve Jobs finished his 90-minute announcement of the Apple iPad, the company's new tablet computer. It's variably impressive depending on who you are, but will anyone buy it? We discuss. Also it's over for the Mars rover Spirit. At least the roving part is over. But it's still alive and doing science.
It's finally here! Apple's iPad event is happening tomorrow, and in honor of all the announcements, we don't talk about the iPad at all on today's show. Just kidding! Will it be called the iPad HD? Will it have a home button? Will we finally be able to stop talking about it?
Tune in to today's 404 episode to learn how to enter for a chance to win one of three Threadless t-shirts and a $30 gift certificate to Threadless.com! Richard "Gems" Peterson fills in for Ariel and tells us about his trip to Seattle with Affirmation, an organization supporting gay and lesbian members of the Mormon church.
Apple schedules an event tied to the second-gen iPad, Netflix announces a two-year deal to stream content from CBS, and Open Library launches a free e-book lending program.
This morning Wilson told us he'd tear his hair out if he hears the word "iPad" one more time, and we completely understand, but we still have to talk about it a little bit on today's show, so beware of falling strands. There's plenty of coverage on CNET TV of Saturday's official Apple iPad launch, plus a first look at gaming on the iPad, and, of course, the official CNET review.
We'll break down everything we've heard as the rumor hype hits an all-time high for Apple's next-gen iPad event. Is Apple getting into the car business as well? Plus our Gelaskins giveaway!
In case you missed the big event and like to get your news recaps as though they're happening in real-time, here's a replay of our live coverage of Apple's iPad 2 announcement! Upshot: Brian Tong really IS NostraTongus, and every other tablet maker on earth better start slashing prices, stat. --Molly
We plan on seeing the iPad Mini at Apple's event, but that's not the only thing. If you've been waiting for a MacBook Pro 13-inch Retina, it just might be your lucky day. Plus, an iPad case giveaway!
Apple's September music event comes early; we'll show you an iMac you can touch; sumo wrestlers get iPads; and we'll get a first peek at Apple's "Bri-TV."
No, we don't have the new iPad/iSlate/iFail just yet, but we're crossing our fingers hoping for good news at tomorrow's Apple Event. CNET correspondent Natali Del Conte is already in San Francisco ready to cover the big announcement, and we're stoked that Jeff hosted Loaded today in her absence. Also, be sure to check out PRE-GAME, Jeff's newest video game show on CNETV starting next Tuesday, February 2.
