The iPad 2 Official Presentation Video and the Parodies

Here’s the official video that was presented by Steve Jobs himself in the Apple Special Media Event in San Francisco, California last week:

And here are the parodies of that video created by people who have the creativity and the resources to make these funny videos: Watch the videos after the jump »

The Road to the iPad 2

It’s been days since the Apple Media Event in San Francisco. What we’ve learned from the event:

  • The expected release of the iPad 2;
  • The expected release of iOS 4.3;
  • Some updated apps especially made for the iPad 2, such as Garage Band, Photo Booth, and iMovie;

Personally, I’m not that impressed with the specs of the new iPad. From what Pinoy Tech Blog has pointed out as key differences from the original iPad, I don’t think I’ll easily buy to that processor upgrade, or the addition of front and rear cameras, or the reduction in thickness (or thinness, if you may) and weight, especially if it only officially reaches the Philippine shores in another eight months.

The iPad 2 Smart Cover

With the introduction of iPad 2 yesterday in the Apple Special “Media” Event in San Francisco, California, Apple also introduced the iPad 2 Smart Cover.

Besides being a stand for your new iPad 2, this thing snaps into your iDevice through magnets. Also, it enables sleep when you put on the cover as well as wakes it up when uncovered. Watch the video after the jump »

Toodledo for Windows Desktop

I’m thinking about shifting from RememberTheMilk (RTM) to Toodledo. That’s because I’m trying to lean towards using a GTD solution to my everyday tasks, may they be personal or business.

I find Toodledo to be close to perfect, if not perfect, for GTD. If RTM only has tags to categorize your tasks, Toodledo has tags, context and projects/folders. Of course both have priorities.

But I’m starting to like Toodledo more because of its great iPad app and its integration with Nuevasync (to synchronize my tasks with my Windows Mobile phone).

Unfortunately, Toodledo has no native Desktop PC application. I’m not a programmer, much less a software developer, but now I’m wondering, if the developers could afford a great iPad app, why not develop one for Windows PC? If it’s Flash-based or will be running on Adobe Air, I wouldn’t mind. The most important thing here is it can be accessed offline and seamless synchronization with the web service once you get online.

I know there’s Task Angel, but that you have to pay quite a hefty amount in order to use it. And it’s not native. It was not built to integrate with Toodledo alone. And it lacks Notebook support too. I’m really talking about an iPad-like application.

Hope the developers consider my request in the future.
