iPad Air 3 design sketch : 3D Touch still a possibility?

A report from Engadget, shows a sketch design of the soon to be released iPad Air 3. The interesting aspect that from the design it is shown to be thicker than its predecessor, the iPad Air 2. This may be an indication of a full screen force touch (3D Touch). Its well known that iPad technology is sometimes 1 year behind the latest iPhone. This was shown in iPad 2nd generation without the retina display (when iPhone 4 was already released), and the TouchID fingerprint sensor which was released on the latest iPad product (which is iPad Air 2).

One can ask, is it necessary for an iPad to have force touch? For me, the answer is yes. Apple will no doubt continue to support and market its 3D Touch in its iOS devices, and iPad will surely be apart of it. We didn't get a 10 inch iPad update last year, so this year is the right time. Although some rumours say that Apple will not include a 3D touch with its latest release of the iPad Air 3. I think from a customers' point of view, it would be preferable to wait and have a 3D touch on an iPad, to pair it with the iPhone 6s.

Apple may drop the incremental numbering on the iPad Air, as they did for the iPad. There are also more information about new connectors and accessories that the iPad Air 3 may have. Head over to the source for more of that.

Samsung copying Apple? A patent sue

Here's what Apple said :  
"Rather than innovate and develop its own technology and a unique Samsung style for its smart phone products and computer tablets, Samsung chose to copy Apple's technology, user interface and innovative style in these infringing products."
That's something addressed to a party who makes hardware for them. Head to the source and see what people are thinking in the comments section

Project Cafe Controller. What will it look like

In our previous post we know that Nintendo has something up their sleeves. But somehow information about the controller has emerged. Now, the last time Nintendo released a console which is the Wii, the control itself is a revolutionary idea. Looking forward to what sort of controller Nintendo will bring is always interesting. The main thing here is that the controller will come with dual analog and a display screen. Again, this is not confirmed from the Big N. Many of you might not notice but before, on the Wii console gives more feedback to the user with sounds rather than just that classic vibration effect which of course applies individually to the player of the controller. Now it seems like Nintendo are taking a step ahead in interacting more with the users by having an on screen display on the controller. It might seem a simple thing but who knows what sort of experience might emerge with this concept. Head to the source for more news.

Nintendo expected to release the Wii 2, codename Project Cafe

Numerous sources are saying that Nintendo is ready to unleash a new Console. After the 3DS last year on E3, this new Wii 2 or something will be announced somewhere between now and June's E3. What to expect? A backwards compatibility with Wii, HD Graphics, more powerfull than the PS3 (maybe), and more 3rd Party titles. Nintendo has got to make new games. Not just porting it like what they did to the 3DS
