Speculation that Apple is having a hard time keeping up with demand for the iPad seems to have been confirmed by Apple CEO Steve Jobs in … Read more

While Amazon had its Kindle for iPad app ready in time for the launch of the iPad, Barnes & Noble decided to take its sweet time before releasing its BN eReader for iPad, which is finally available as a free download in Apple's App Store.
Like Amazon, Barnes & Noble is trying to give its customers access to its e-book store from a wide array of popular mobile devices, including the iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry, and next month, Android smartphones. Users can store content in one master digital library and shuffle content between devices.
Barnes & Noble is touting the fact that it's designed this version of its eReader app from the ground up, specifically for the iPad. It's also highlighting its e-book lending option, which lets you lend out certain e-books to friends one time for a 14-day period.
Here's a look at the key features:
Two options for displaying your library (Library Grid and Library List views) Choice of colors for text; pages (background); highlights; and links Eight typefaces and five text sizes Variety of margins and customizable spacing options LendMe feature (limited lending of certain e-books) All e-books and most periodicals purchased through the Barnes & Noble eBookstore are accessible on your iPad Built-in dictionary Google and Wikipedia integration for quick searches of terms and words

But can Pac-Man still be anywhere near as popular as it once was, with today's smooth graphics and multilevel arcade game offerings?
Before you head to the App Store and spend your hard-earned money, there are a couple things you should know about the iPad version of Pac-Man. Though … Read more
