Apple Replaces iPad 2 with iPad 4; Still $399

Your $399 is about to go much further with Apple. According to a report from Ars Technica, the company is finally taking the iPad 2 out of its lineup, replacing it with the more recent fourth-generation model that debuted in late 2012.

This is notable for a few reasons. The iPad 4 has a Retina display, which is a huge upgrade over the lower-resolution display on the iPad 2. The fourth-generation model also touts a better processor and more memory. And the iPad 4 uses Apple’s Lightning port, which means you’ll be able [...]

URX is Revolutionizing Mobile Ads By Using Something Called Deep Links

If you’ve never heard of deep linking, then I’m sure you’ve experienced the frustration of an app that doesn’t have deep linking.  Let me give you a familiar example:  LinkedIn sends you an email about a new connection, you click on the link on your mobile device, but instead of directing you to the LinkedIn app that’s already installed on your phone, you get sent to LinkedIn’s homepage instead (where you have to re-log in, etc.).  While this is annoying and not the most seamless process, it’s [...]

Microsoft Makes the Surface 2 with LTE Official, Launching March 18th for $679

One glaring omission from the Microsoft Surface line has always been the lack of a model with mobile connectivity capabilities. While Apple’s iPad and many other competitors officer versions with 3G or LTE networking for a small premium, Microsoft has been content with sitting out of that market and providing only simple Wi-Fi support on their tablets – until now. The technology giant has apparently had a change of heart, as the company has just announced that they will be launching a new, LTE-capable version of their [...]
