Remains of the Day: Laser vision
The new iPad’s interiors get scrutinized down to a molecular level, while Apple puts Retina-ready apps under the microscope. And Apple’s got its eye on any office space around. The remainders for Friday, March 16, 2012 have got 20/20 vision.
The New iPad: A Closer Look Inside (Chipworks)
When an iPad dissection just isn’t enough, turn to Chipworks for the nitty-gritty microscoped and X-rayed photographs. Turns out the new iPad’s iSight camera is the same one you’ll find in the iPhone 4—well, probably not you, unless you’re feeling really industrious.
Speaking of the new iPad, which is all we do these days, it seems that though the two carriers use different frequencies for their LTE networks, users of the Verizon LTE model can swap out their micro-SIM card for an AT&T SIM. That’s thanks to the fact that the Verizon model is compatible with AT&T’s 3G network, although you may also need to perform some technical jiggery-pokery. In order to get it to run on another carrier’s slower network. For whatever reason.
Great Apps for the New iPad (iTunes)
Looking for shiny, apps to fill out your new iPad? Apple’s got you covered, with a collection of programs that take advantage of the brand new Retina display. Among the list are apps like Infinity Blade II, Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy, Mass Effect: Infiltrator, and, because you prefer your podcasts with beautiful high-res graphics, Instacast HD.
As it continues the massive undertaking that is its enormous new campus, Apple has been leasing pretty much any office space it can find in Cupertino and the surrounding environs. I just hope this doesn’t end like Chinatown.
