16th march 2012, Today it’s new iPad release day, I got one hands on from apple store, Reading. It’s wifi only model with 64 GB storage without 4G as here in uk till now there is no support for 4G. Anyway I thought wifi only model as best suitable for me, as I am planning to tether with my iPhone data.

Features of new iPad
1. Ultra-high-resolution Retina display
If there is one feature that will get people to upgrade their handheld devices, it’s eye candy. The new iPad has plenty of weight in this category thanks to its new Retina display which doubles the pixel count of the current Apple tablet to an astonishing 2048 x 1536 resolution. In case you don’t feel like doing the math, that’s over a million pixels higher than a 1080p HDTV, and it’s all crammed into a 9.7″ screen.
The new display, while very impressive, isn’t quite as big of a jump as the iPhone 3G was to the iPhone 4, but it retains the Retina namesake nonetheless. For owners of the original Apple tablet as well as the iPad 2, there’s no question that this is one of the most compelling features when considering an upgrade.
Google has marked the 101st anniversary of the birth of the origami grandmaster Akira Yoshizawa with a new doodle.

Yoshizawa was born in 1911 to dairy farming parents but moved to Tokyo when he was just 13 where he started working in a tool factory.
In his early 20s, he was promoted to a technical draftsman and used origami, a skill he had acquired as a child, as a tool to teach younger employees basic geometry. Read more…
New operating system iOS 5.1 released for the iPhone and iPad on 7th March. As I am being the iOS user and app developer for more than 2 years, I love the each and every updates released by apple for its device. The exciting thing about the apple is that it always bring awesome features with its software update. The cool thing I got to see is the camera icon just right to the ‘slide to unlock’ which can be open by up sliding the camera icon. This feature is to take photos and video without unlocking. With this iOS 5.1 update the whole system is amazyingly fast, as I have tested it with my iPhone 4, it’s much more faster then earlier iOS version. Many thanks for the update.
This iOS 5.1 update – address and fix the iPhone’s much-noted battery issues for iPhone 4s too.
Today 8th March it’s International Women’s Day. The event, born of the socialist movement in the United States the early 1900s, has spread across the world in the century since.
But the day looks very different across the globe, much like the differences in the lives of women worldwide. Here’s how the International Women’s Day Celebrated By Google with it’s google doodle.
The special day is on Thursday, March 8th and there is a web site devoted for it at internationalwomensday.com. It was originally named International Working Women’s Day and always is celebrated on March 8th. It was actually first observed on February 28, 1909. In Russia in 1965, it was the first time a country made the day a non working day.
