First look: GarageBand for iPad

Jason Snell spent a week with GarageBand for iPad and the iPad 2. Here are his first impressions.

Apple Digital AV Adapter

Apple's new $39 Digital AV Adapter gives HD-capable iOS devices a feature they have sorely lacked: the ability to output HD video. At last, those HD videos on your iPad, iPhone 4, or fourth-generation (4G) iPod touch can be displayed as they were intended -- on a big, beautiful HDTV.

Hands on with iMovie for iPad

Jason Snell spent some time with iMovie on his iPad 2. Here are his first thoughts.

Review: The iPad 2

The iPad 2 has arrived, and Macworld's got a full hands-on review of the product from Jason Snell.

iPad 2 Smart Cover

Apple's iPad Smart Cover is a nice companion product that protects the iPad 2's screen while adding far less bulk than a full case. It even integrates with the iPad's hardware and software to automatically lock and unlock the iPad when you close and open the cover. As with its iPad Case for the original iPad, Apple has set a high bar for third-party accessories.

Up close with the iPad 2

You've read about the iPad 2. Now join Jason Snell on this video tour of Apple's newly announced tablet.

Hands on with iPad 2

We got to spend some quality time with the iPad 2. Here's what we learned.

Live Update: Apple iPad/iOS event

Apple invited Macworld to an event scheduled for 10 a.m. Pacific on March 2 in San Francisco. The invitation sports a peeled-back calendar page for the date of March 2, with the top corner revealing what appears to be an iPad, and text reading “Come see what 2011 will be the year of.”

Developers take center stage at Macworld Mobile

In Barcelona, developers (including the CEO of Rovio, the Angry Birds people) took the stage at the new Macworld Mobile event to discuss the pros and cons of developing for the iOS platform.

Review: Nine more folio-style iPad cases


Folio-style cases offer all-over protection for your iPad, but flip open for easy access. We've added reviews of nine additional folios to our collection: Booq's Boa Folio, Chima's Crucial Case, Moshi's Concerti, Nizmos' Angle and Contour, Portenzo's Alano and Notebook Style, Powis' iCase, and US+U's Swivel Pro. Included in the batch is a new iPad-folio champion.

HP, Apple, and the year of the tablet

Jason Snell and Dan Moren discuss HP's announcement of its new TouchPad tablet, rumors of the iPad 2 (and 3!), and where the competition in the tablet market will end up.

Live Update: HP WebOS Event

Could we be about to see HP's first tablet with WebOS? Jason Snell is at the event in San Francisco to find out.

Review: The Verizon iPhone 4

The story of the Verizon iPhone 4 is really three stories in one -- what it means for Verizon customers who haven't been able to use Apple's smartphone until now, what the subtle variations are between this model and AT&T's version, and what kind of support Verizon and AT&T offer to iPhone customers. Jason Snell covers all three areas in his review of this new version of the iPhone.
