The Verge 's Sean Hollister says that the new iPad is not only a magnificent device, but also a nice reminder of how horrible data plans are : Apple's new iPad is magnificent .

The powers that be have colluded to place arbitrary restrictions on your data...

Part of the fun of Apple rumors is trying to figure out not only the specs of the next device, but also just what the company is going to call its next big thing. Apple doesn't come up with crazy names for its products (see: every other device maker), but the amount of energy that goes into puzzling out what combination of product name and number will come out of the next event is staggering — especially after the iPhone 4S vs. iPhone 5 debate.

Now that ritual has been upended by the soaring popularity of young children's book apps for the iPad . Earlier this week, eight of the top 10 paid book apps on iTunes were picture books. Today's digital-native children seem keenly interested in a story told to them on a 10-inch screen with a...

Apple made its iPad mini official on Tuesday, after months of speculation that the company would release a smaller tablet. The new mini tablet has a 7.9-inch display, runs on an A5 chip and was built with the words "light" and "thin" in mind. Here's a look at the pros and cons of Apple's latest gadget. It's portable: At 0.68 pounds and 0.28 inches thick, the tablet is built for portability. That means it's good for commuters and, as Apple made a point of highlighting Tuesday, for kids.
