Happy Birthday, iPad. Four And All Grown Up

ipad-anniversary

The iPad is four years old today and my mom hates it. Maybe not hate. Dislikes. Loathes. I don’t know the right word but for two weeks it sat in Apple’s pristine white box, unwrapped, unlocked, setup and then discarded; snuggling in its brown leather SmartCover completely untouched.

After dismissing it as “just a big iPhone” it’s grown on her in four months, just like it’s grown on us since 2010. Now it’s the only place she watches YouTube, looks at pictures, reads websites, FaceTimes and gets down on Solitaire like Kim Jong-un at a nuclear buffet.

It’s the best damn thing to ever happen for children with tech-illiterate parents.

If You’ve Got The Skills, You Can Now Dual Boot iOS 7, iOS 6 And iOS 5

When we originally posted about winocm’s magic iPad 2 that could boot between iOS 5, iOS 6 and iOS 7 at will, we said that “the elite skills necessary to hack your iPad to dual boot operating systems is beyond the ability of most of us mortals, and it’s unlikely winocm will ever make this process friendly for the everyman.”

Then, just yesterday, we took it all back: winocm was going to release the hack that allowed him to dual boot operating systems on his iPad. Schizo-iPads would soon be available to everyone! We were wrong!

Today, though, winocm has released his hack, and guess what? It’s a bunch of github code that you need to have “elite skills… beyond the ability of most of us mortals” to install… definitely not a “process friendly for the everyman.”
