The rumor mill is already cranking up for the next iPad mini, with a report suggesting that the new tablet will have a better display. The Digitimes website has put out a report saying the next iteration of the 7.9-inch Apple tablet will have a higher resolution display. The report, which cites unnamed sources, doesn't say the improved display will use Apple's Retina technology, but it says there's a good chance it might. The iPad mini has been on sale a little more than a month, but it seems it's never too early to talk about what Apple will do next.

Google's just-released Google+ iPad app is slick but could use a bit more tweaking before you make it a regular hangout.  At first glance, the user interface is well laid out and visually satisfying. Large photos display beautifully and boldly. Posts appear as large, photo-centric tiles that are easy to read and access, and the animation makes it appear that tiles are just floating into place. Unlike the iPhone app's black background, the one on the main page of the iPad app is a light whitish-gray.

Even the noblest of efforts - such as, say, the Los Angeles Unified School District's program to give each of its 600,000-plus students Apple iPads - can suffer under the weight of bungled management. Since the district rolled out its $1 billion program - funded by construction bond money, a sticking point with letter writers - reader reaction has ranged from skepticism at the beginning to downright hostility as more problems were reported. The Times' latest article on the program, which reported that other school districts pay far less than L.A. Unified for their laptops and tablets, sparked reader indignation again.

Apple's new iPad just landed at the L.A. Times and it is sleek, slender, fast and beautiful -- not much of a surprise, really. AT&T shipped over a 4G LTE version of the third-generation iPad, which also runs on AT&T's HSPA+ network, 3G network, old 2G Edge network and, of course, Wi-Fi. As you can see in the video above, we unboxed the new iPad immediately. The packaging, what's included with the iPad and even the iPad itself are nearly indistinguishable from the iPad 2 -- at least until you turn the new iPad on.

Apple is commencing its live stream for the company's event today in San Jose. The Cupertino-based company is widely expected to announce the iPad mini, a smaller version of its 9.7-inch iPad. The tech giant is broadcasting the event from its website as well as on Apple TV devices. The iPad mini, or perhaps the iPad air, is expected to have a 7.85-inch screen. It is also likely to be lighter, thinner and less expensive than its larger counterpart.

Apple launched and announced a lot of new stuff last week at its Worldwide Developers Conference, but afterward it quietly made a few other changes too, including releasing a new case for the iPad. The iPad Smart Case went on sale on Apple's website after WWDC's keynote ended, which is around the same time other changes went into effect as well, including a minorly improved new line of Mac Pros . The new iPad Smart Case is like the Smart Cover released last year with the iPad 2 but fully encloses the iPad around its back as well.

It's time to set the record straight: The iPad mini has stereo speakers. After some initial confusion, it has been confirmed on multiple fronts, including by Apple, that the company's upcoming iPad mini has two speakers built for stereo sound. The confusion began last week immediately after Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller announced the smaller Apple tablet. Schiller touted all of the mini's features -- the 7.9-inch screen, its pencil-like thinness and notepad-like weight.

With Apple expected to announce the iPad 3 on Wednesday, we're on rumor patrol here at the Technology Blog. The latest buzz is that Apple will not raise prices for the highly anticipated tablet and will keep its current pricing structure for all iPad 3 models, according to 9to5Mac . “Even better, some countries with currencies doing better than the U.S. dollar should expect to see marginal drops in prices,” the blog said. That's good news for the hordes of shoppers expected to line up for the tablet once it's released and is in line with Apple's usual approach of keeping prices the same even as it updates popular products.
