A Day in the Life

"Share" and "iPad" are two words that don't mix at our place.

I don't know what it's like at your house, but at mine, it goes a little something like this:

I get home from a long, hard day at work, weary to the bone. I cook dinner. I eat dinner. I do the dishes. Finally, I sit down on the couch with a cup of chamomile and my trusty 3rd generation Apple iPad. I marvel at the improved Retina display with 4 times more pixels and 44% greater color saturation than the iPad 2. I'm just about to use the new dictation service to speak my to-do list for tomorrow when I feel a tiny tug on my pajama pants.

"Ma ma ma ma ma," comes the little voice from behind the 9.7" LED screen.

"No no," I say. "Momma's checking her email with one of the many built-in apps that came with her iPad."

"Ma ma ma ma ma," it persists. I sigh and give in.

"You want to watch Elmo on YouTube?"

It nods, squeals happily and crawls into my lap.

For the next half hour, the happy-go-lucky tunes drone over and over through the Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound. I look forward to waking up the next morning with one particularly obnoxious song stuck in my head.

"Okay. All done," I say.

Now, what happens next is nothing short of an abominable union of hell meeting holy living terror right here on Earth, whereas my previously smiling and giggling toddler is instantaneously transformed into the spawn of Satan himself. It screams. It spits. It bites. It kicks. And I swear I can make out the words "MY PRECIOUSSSSSSSS" through the hissing.

And that, my friends, is precisely why you should buy two.

Features

Retina Display
Improved Retina display provides 4 times more pixels and 44% greater color saturation than the iPad 2. Within the 9.7" LED, 2048 x 1536 pixels render text and images with extreme sharpness. The display also features a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating for increased resolution during use.

Dual-Core A5X Chip
The dual-core A5X chip with quad-core graphics support provides a great deal of smoothness while powering substantially more technology. The new chip is able to easily render all of the 3.1-million pixels within the retina display while still retaining a substantial 10 hour battery life. The chip also functions in a way that allows you to touch and go with limited power-up times.

iSight Camera
The rear-facing camera now features a 5MP backside illuminated sensor for increased lowlight sensitivity and greater resolution for printable images. While this increase in resolution definitely allows for higher quality imagery, a newly designed 5-element f/2.4 lens also renders images with greater sharpness and definition. A hybrid infrared filter is incorporated as well, for limiting color aberrations and providing greater fidelity when photographing in mixed light situations.

Autofocus, tap-to-focus, and tap to set exposure settings provide a range of functions that allow you to achieve the best exposure possible in a quick and intuitive manner. Face detection is also supported and recognizes up to 10 different faces for improved exposure and focus settings when photographing people. In addition to improved still imaging capabilities, the iSight camera also supports full HD 1080p video recording with automatic image stabilization.

iOS and iCloud
iOS and iCloud provide the robust backbone for this device to run off of and support the seamless multi-touch interface. Within the iOS system, App Store hosts a plethora of iPad-specific apps designed for the vivid 9.7" Retina display. iCloud functions as a wireless service for you to keep all of your devices synced and maintain the content throughout them.

Dictation
Dictation is a new service that allows you to simply speak the text you wish to write. By enabling this mode, you can speak into the microphone and have the iPad automatically compute the text within a given field. Dictate is compatible across all text-rich applications, including 3rd party apps.

AirPlay
AirPlay functions off of the wireless capabilities of the iPad and allows you to seamlessly watch or listen to your content on your HDTV. When connected to the same wireless network, content can be controlled from the iPad and ported through or watched on auxiliary devices.
