Apple Daily, a news publication based out of Taiwan, have posted what they claim are images of the upcoming iPad 3, acquired through “inside sources”. One alleged shot shows the next-gen iPad from a side/rear overview perspective, and another has all three iterations of the iPad side-by-side. From the latter, the iPad 3 appears slightly more tapered around the edges than the iPad 2, and the camera lens is noticeably bigger. Speaking of which, Apple Daily says that the rear camera will be 8 megapixels, up from the 1 megapixel in resolution of the iPad 2. Other specs they claim the iPad 3 to have are the retina display and quad-core A6 chip, as well as a release date of March 7th. These are in line with a previous Bloomberg report that states production had already begun as of mid-January, and a March launch date had been targeted by Apple.
Below is another image posted by Apple Daily, a comparison shot of a component found in the iPad 2 and iPad 3.

Much has been made about the secrecy and working conditions at Foxconn, where tens of millions iPhones and iPads are produced each year. New Year Time’s excellent article “In China, Human Costs Are Built Into an iPad” recently highlighted the long hours, and often harsh conditions workers have to endure. What the public has never seen though, is a true inside look at the factories that churn out your favorite iDevices 24/7 – until now that is. In a special Dateline episode airing tomorrow, co-anchor Bill Weir will offer a glimpse of the manufacturer’s inner workings — from how Apple products are made to interviews with factory workers — after being given an unprecedented tour of a Foxconn factory in Shenzhen, China.

There's something about the world of Tiny Planet that captured my attention from the very first game screen. The Tiny Bang Story HD is not your typical hidden object game; it's a bit light on story, and it assumes that you don't need any handholding. It can also get frustrating at times, even with something as simple as figuring out what to do next. Through it all, though, I found myself hardly able to put the game down. That's even after playing the first chapter 3 times (once on my PC and twice on the iPad). There were only two significant letdowns to the game – it ended too quickly, and the end was actually a bit anti-climactic.(...)
