Now that iPad Mini is here, should you get one? And are you mad about iPad 4?

On Tuesday, Apple unveiled its new fourth generation iPad and a new smaller iPad Mini.

Now, the questions come: should you buy a Mini?

Should you buy an iPad 4?

If you just bought the iPad third generation (“the new iPad”) are you upset that there’s a newer better version just six months after you bought, if you bought on launch day? And what if you bought one last month?

First let’s look at the Mini. It’s an iPad you can hold easily in one hand. It’s got an A5 processor, like the iPad 2, but it doesn’t have a Retina Display screen, like the iPad 4. Still, in every other way, the iPad Mini is a smaller and much lighter version of i4.

It’s a hard choice. Some people may like the smaller size and the iPad Mini blows iPad 2 out of the water, with better cameras, better connectivity options and more features. The Retina Display is a wonderful feature, but it’s not as though the iPad 2 screen was rummage.

So the choice, ultimately, is about size and money.

iPad Mini is 7.9 inches of screen. iPad 4 is 9.7, but the Mini is much thinner and nearly a pound lighter. If you’re doing a lot of reading on your device, it’s going to be hard to say no to the Mini.

The other issue is cost. You can buy a Mini starting at $329 or $459 with cellular. That’s cheaper than the $499 entry price point for the WiFi only 9.7 inch iPad 4. But you’re giving up screen real estate and that aforementioned Retina Display.

We would’ve liked to have seen a retina option for the Mini but that’s likely to come later.

Ultimately, these are individual decisions that will likely hinge around whether you feel iPad Mini is big enough. This is probably not something we’d pre-order sight unseen or better, product un-felt.

Our bigger questions now revolve around launch cycles.

Is Apple now moving iPad to the fall? Usually we’d be looking at a March iPad launch. We’d imagine a few customers probably weren’t thrilled that the iPad 3 they bought in March/June/August is no longer state of the art, but that’s technology. It marches on.

Still, this was simply a refresh. Apple got the new Lightning cable connector in iPad 4 and an A6X processing chip that will double the speed of an already lightning fast machine. By not putting Retina and the A6X on the Mini, Apple left its gold standard model as the original larger version, but ease of use, weight issues and easier carry may make folks drift to the Mini.

Plus, it is cheaper.

But is it cheap enough? Apple faces a lot of competition at the $199 price point and Google is said to be releasing a $99 Nexus soon. The guess here is when iPad Mini is refreshed, be it March or next October, the original Mini will drop to by $100 to $229 WiFi, just as the iPad 2 dropped from $499 to $399 for 16 gig when Apple released iPad 3 earlier this year.

If Apple is able to do that with the price points, maybe it makes sense to drop a spring refresh to get aggressive with price, and if the iPad 4 dropped to $399 at the same time as Apple released some hot new iPad 5 at $499, it would make the competitors’ collective knees’ shake.

Sprint (finally) gets the iPad and it gets iPad Mini, too

Sprint customers had to wait a long time for iPhone and finally got it. Now after a similar wait, Sprint customers will get the new iPad Mini and the new fourth gen iPad.

Sprint said it will offer the both versions of Apple’s tablet “in the coming” weeks with what it called “a range of attractive data plans that will allow customers to connect to its 4G LTE network.”

Apple intros new iPad Mini, iMac, MacMini, MacBook

Apple CEO Tim Cook took to a California stage Tuesday to announce the company’s latest big projects: new versions of its MacBook computer line, a new version of its popular iPad tablet and a new version of its iBooks software.

“We have some very fond memories here,” Cook said, “and we’re going to create a few more today.”

Cook said as of two weeks ago Apple sold its 100 millionth iPad since the device was released 21/2 years ago. He said iPad accounts for 91 percent of web traffic on tablets.

Apple may want to get ready for some more sales.

Tuesday, Cook said “we’re not taking our foot of the gas,” and the company showed off a new 4th generation iPad, released about six months after the third gen.

It also introduced the much anticipated iPad Mini, beginning at $329.

First the fourth gen iPad.

The new iPad runs a new A6 chip that doubles performances over the chip in what is iPad 3. iPad 4 will have 10 hours of battery life and will have a front facing HD FaceTime camera and greatly expanded LTE support in the LTE versions.

The U.S. will get a Sprint version, for example.

Apple says WiFi is two-times faster and it uses the new Lightning connector that was debuted in iPhone 5.

It comes in black and white and comes in 16 gigs WiFi for $499 and $629 for 16 gigs with cellular. There are also 32 gig and 64 gig models, just as before.

iPad Mini

The Mini is a new design. The iPad Mini is 7.9 inches on the screen. It run all software on iPad. Developers won’t need to change their designs. Apple said the display is a third larger than competing 7-inch tablets, like the Google Nexus. In portrait mode, Apple said its 49 percent larger is usable screen space on webpage. In landscape it’s 67 percent larger.

The Mini is 7.2 mm think or 23 percent thinner than the fourth gen iPad. Apple said it weights 0.68 pounds, 50 percent lighter than fourth gen iPad. It’s as thin as pencil and light as a pad of paper.

It comes in black and white.

The Mini is more powerful than the iPad 2. It runs an A5 chip, an HD facetime camera and a 5 MP iSight camera. It’s got same ultrafast wireless in the 4th gen full size iPad. It’s got a Lightning connector. And it’s got 10 hours of battery life.

Apple also has a new SmartCover for iPad Mini. The cases come in blue, green, pink, gray

So what’s it cost?

It’s $329 for 16 gigabytes Wi-Fi or $429 (32 gigs) or $529 (64) gigs. For cellular iPad Mini, pricing is $459, $559 and $659.

Pre-orders begin Oct. 26. WiFi versions ship Nov. 2. Two weeks later, the cellular versions will ship.


The 13-inch MacBook Pro is the No. 1 selling Apple computer, the company said, and it’s adding a new MacBook Pro 13-inch model that is 0.75 inches thin. It’s 20 percent thinner than the previous model and the new model weights 3.75 pounds, about a full pound lighter than its older brother.

It doesn’t have a built-in DVD player, but does include the Retina Display that Apple has added to the 15-inch MacBook and similar to what is found on the latest iPhone and 10-inch iPad models.

Apple said the new 13-inch MacBook pro has almost twice as many pixels as an HDTV. It’s also built to reduce glare by 75 percent.

There is a FaceTime HD camera on the front, dual microphones and speakers on either side of the machine.

Customers can get Intel dual-core i5 or i7 Ivy Bridge processors and up to 7 hours of battery life. Storage is all flash based which will make the computer much faster. Customers can order to up 768 gigs of flash storage.

What’s it cost? It starts at $1,699, about $500 over the current minimum for the 13-inch model. Why the increase? Retina, baby. MacBook Air starts at $999 and older gen MacBrook Pros will remain starting at $1,199.

Mac Mini

A new MacMini was also introduced. It’s Apple’s cheapest computer and doesn’t come with a display. New Ivy Bridge processors and up to 16 gigs of memory and up to 1TB hard drive. Customers can also order up to 256 gigs of Flash Drive.

It starts at $599. There is a server model for $999 and they start shipping today.


The new version of Apple’s one-piece computer is noticeably thinner. Apple said its 5 mm thin or 80 percent thinner than the previous model. Apple used a tech called “Friction Stir Welding” to make two pieces that make the iMac seem like a seamless one-piece construction.

It comes in 21.5 and 27-inch models but do not include Retina Displays. Apple said by making the screen fully laminated, the text sits much closer to the surface and makes text and other items clearer. Apple also said the new iMacs have 75 percent less reflection.

There’s a 720P HD FaceTime camera, dual mics and better stereo sound. It’s also eight pounds lighter than previous gen.

Customers can get up to 3 TB hard drive or 768 gigs of flash memory. You can also get up to 32 gigs of memory, twice as much as before.

The iMac and Mac Mini also offer a 128 gig flash storage fusion drive and you can a 1 TB or 3 TB hard drive. This drive offers faster read and write times. You can even choose which apps to store on the flash side when you want things to run faster.

Apple said the new drive offers very close to the performance of a standard flash drive but gives customers the extra storage they want.

There’s no built-in DVD burner, but an outboard one is offered.

Cost? Base price is $1,299 for 21.5 inch and the 27 inch version is $1,799.

iBOOKS 3.0

iBooks, a free download in the App Store, now adds continuous scrolling and you can share quotes from books and share via Facebook or Twitter. Books are now available in Korean, Chinese, Japanese.

Cook said the Mac computer line continues to gain market share. Cook said the Mac has outgrown the PC market for six years, calling it the No. 1 desktop and the No. 1 notebook in the United States.

— Cook said iBooks textbooks are available for 80 percent of U.S. high school core curriculum, from math to science to history. They appear in more than 2,500 U.S. classrooms.

— A new free version iBooks Author was announced that allows users to render math expressions into bookss and multi-touch widgets.


— Cook began the presentation talking about the new iPhone 5.

“We sold out the first weekend, selling more than five million units,” Cook said. “This is the most iPhones ever sold in the opening weekend and the most phones ever sold in an opening weekend.”

— Cook said newly introduced iPods have also done well. Apple has sold more than three million new iPods and iPod Touches.

— In one month, 200 million Apple mobile devices are using its new iOS6 mobile operating system. Cook said it’s the fastest upgrade rate for any software in history that his company was aware of.

— Cook said Apple customers are sending 28,000 iMessages per second. iMessage is an Apple device to Apple device messaging system that works similarly to texting but also allows easy sharing of videos and photos and allows users to send and receive messages from any Apple device, including MacBooks and desktop Macs.

— Cook said there are more now more than 275,000 iPad apps and more than 700,000 apps in the App Store total. Customers, he said, have downloaded 35 billion apps. He added there are more than 1.5 million books in the iBooks store and customers have downloaded 400 million iBooks.видеофон купитьсамые вкусные духимонтаж и изготовление металлоконструкцийаккумулятор iphone 5 купитьдикие племена африкиcar cover austin 7сколько стоит стяжка пола ценаbullet hd proBOPS

Nike releases new Kevin Durant signature shoe, the KD V

Just in time for the start of the NBA basketball season in a few weeks, Nike has released the new Kevin Durant signature shoe, the KD V. It hits the market Nov. 6 but will be fully available Dec. 8 in a black/blue colorway and a bright crimson.

A new stretched tongue and redesigned lacing system should allow the shoe to fit closer to the foot and feel more like a slipper, judging by the photos and pictures we’ve seen.

TaylorMade Golf says Rocket Bladez irons will revolutionize the game

TaylorMade has long been on the cutting edge when it comes to golf. It was among the first to release drivers that golfers could adjust, adding more or less weight in certain spots on the head to help correct flaws in their swings.

It was among the first to introduce white drivers and fairway woods, which do work well to eliminate glare (though glare isn’t as big an issue for many golfers as some would have you to believe). Truth is, in our opinion, white just looks good on a driver or a fairway.

TaylorMade has also created a whole series of irons that just fly farther, that use lightweight shafts that are stable and give the weekend hacker a chance to hit that 190-yard par 3 with one swing.

And now, the company thinks it’s really hit, um, the golf iron sweet spot with its new RocketBladez. Customers can pre-order these irons now. They ship Dec. 1.

TaylorMade claims the new RocketBladez is 11 yards longer than the excellent Callaway X22 irons on the market now.

What’s the big secret?

TaylorMade has added what it’s tagged “this little thing,” a small pocket on the bottom of the club, that creates the same “trampoline effect” that you get when you hit a ball with a driver or fairway wood. The ball rebounds and flies off the face.

If all that’s mumbo-jumbo to you, just know this, if these clubs are what TaylorMade says they are (and we hope to test their theory soon), well, you’ll just have to seriously thinking about adding them to your arsenal.

The RocketBallz fairways woods, in our tests, delivered in their promise of higher and straighter drives with more distance, by about 5-10 yards over similar clubs we were hitting or were testing. These irons are based on similar tech.

TaylorMade says the technology also increases the size of the space on the club where you can expect optimal distance and consistent performance from the size of a pea to the size of a quarter. Since we don’t the ball like, say, TaylorMade endorser Sergio Garcia, this is huge. There’s a much better chance we hit the club somewhere near the right spot to enjoy the technological advances, or so the theory goes.

TaylorMade touring pros are also loving the club and touring pros don’t usually like distance irons because it’s hard to hit an 8-iron 155 yards every time with one. You can get yardages all over the place. TaylorMade thinks it’s solved that problem, too. It claims RocketBladez are not only long but distance consistent.

Again, we hope to test the theory but this could be the club many amateurs have always wanted.

Here’s the official press release:

CARLSBAD, CA–(Marketwire – Oct 23, 2012) – TaylorMade Golf Company President and CEO Mark King announced the arrival of what he says is the biggest iron innovation to date. Today, via a global webcast, King officially introduced RocketBladez, an iron with a remarkable new technology that promotes high launching, long, straight and quick-stopping performance for golfers of all abilities.

RocketBladez’ key new technology is its “Speed Pocket,” inspired by the distance-enhancing benefits of the RocketBallz fairway woods and Rescue clubs. TaylorMade engineers incorporated the Speed Pocket into RocketBladez irons to promote faster ball speed and a higher launch angle to promote longer, high-flying, quick-stopping shots. Altogether, the RocketBladez set consists of eleven individually designed clubheads, each tailored in size, shape and features to maximize distance, control and feel like never before.

“Metalwoods have advanced tremendously since TaylorMade introduced the first one in 1979,” said King. “The ball has advanced too, and even footwear and apparel have improved a great deal. But there hasn’t been a significant advancement in irons since the perimeter-weighted cavityback was introduced more than 50 years ago. The Speed Pocket changes that — it’s a once-in-a-lifetime innovation in the iron category. If your iron doesn’t have a Speed Pocket, your iron is out-dated.”

Incorporated into the 3- through 7-irons, the Speed Pocket is a 2mm-wide slot in the sole of the iron that flexes and rebounds at impact, increasing the speed of the face to promote faster ball speed, a higher launch angle and a higher, stronger ball flight that lands on a steep, quick-stopping descent angle.

The Speed Pocket advantage is especially effective on impacts made low on the face. TaylorMade studies indicate that 68% of iron shots by amateur golfers are mis-hits below the center of the face. The Speed Pocket helps to significantly increase ball speed and distance on those low-face mis-hits.

Tour professionals will also benefit from the distance benefits of the Speed Pocket, as TaylorMade is also offering a RocketBladez Tour model. Unlike other distance irons, the RocketBladez Tour iron delivers consistent distance and is void of “hot spots” on the clubface, to ensure predictability and distance consistency from shot to shot.

“We created RocketBladez irons for amateurs, but when our Tour Staff pros tried it, they wanted it,” said King. “We created a Tour version, and they love it. It’s the first distance-oriented iron to be played on Tour. The genius of the Speed Pocket is that not only does it deliver more speed for more distance, it delivers consistent speed, so shots fly a consistent distance. That combination of speed and consistent distance is what made the eyes of our tour pros light up.”

The 3- through 7-irons boast the most sophisticated clubface TaylorMade has ever created for a Tour iron, fashioned from fast, high-strength stainless steel with improved Inverted Cone design. Consistent distance gaps throughout the set made possible by careful management of the Speed Pocket, Inverted Cone, face thickness, CG location, loft and shaft length.

RocketBladez irons are priced at $799 with steel shafts, $899 with graphite shafts, and are available for pre-order on October 23. The irons hit retail starting Friday, November 30. RocketBladez Tour Irons will be available at retail February 1 for $899. Learn more at

Tech Talk

Speed Pocket
The Speed Pocket flexes and reflexes at impact to add speed to the clubface, which increases ball speed and launch angle. The Speed Pocket is filled with a specially formulated polyurethane developed by 3M that quiets vibration without significantly slowing/inhibiting the flex of the pocket, while also keeping debris out. In conjunction with the highly sophisticated face design (11% thinner than our previous thinnest), adds up to 10 COR points to the face compared to Burner® 2.0 irons, and promotes dramatically less drop-off in ball speed on impacts low on the face — where the majority of iron mis-hits occur. That means the COR low on the face is higher than it’s ever been in a TaylorMade iron, and the benefit is that thin shots carry significantly farther.

Ultra-thin clubface with improved Inverted Cone design
The RocketBladez clubface (both models) consists of strong, maraging stainless steel. It’s our most sophisticated clubface design yet, made possible by more evolved analysis and testing and our increasing mastery of the manufacturing processes. It’s the thinnest iron face TaylorMade has ever created, with the top section now 1.6 mm, down from 1.8 — that’s 11% thinner. Both new RocketBladez iron models also incorporate our most newest and most effective iteration of Inverted Cone Technology. The improved Inverted Cone design delivers two critical benefits. One, it increases the size of the clubface area that delivers high ball speed. Two, it influences how the face flexes and rebounds at impact to control the angle at which the ball leaves the face, promoting straighter shots and a tighter dispersion. This is a critical benefit that promotes significantly greater accuracy compared to previous high COR irons.

Low and centered CG location
Impacting the ball where the CG is located on the face is critical to achieving maximum ball speed. In both RocketBladez iron models, TaylorMade engineers fine-tuned the CG to a low and absolutely centered location on the face by shortening the hosel to save weight and taking additional weight from the top of the club, then redistributing it all in strategic areas within the head. In the RocketBladez clubhead design, 17.5 grams of redistributed weight enabled us to lower the CG by 2.5 mm compared to the Burner® 2.0 iron. Locating the CG lower and in the center of the face makes it easier to consistently find the sweetspot to achieve maximum energy transfer from club to ball, promoting a higher launch angle and maximum distance.

External and Internal Hosel-bending Notches
RocketBladez irons (both models) feature a distinct external notch on the outer, rear side of the hosel and an internal notch inside that together make it easy to bend the head to change the lie angle. That’s a distinct advantage to bendability when employing high-strength stainless steel in the head construction.

It’s official, Apple to host media event Oct. 23; is it iPad Mini?

Well, Apple has made it official.

It will host a media event Oct. 23 and if you believe all the reports, the company is going to introduce a new 7.85-inch version of the iPad.

The name we’ve seen most associated with this is iPad Mini, though some pundits like to call it iPad Air, as Apple has designed lighter laptops and called them Airs.

This “event” will be held at the California Theatre in San Jose, California and starts at 1 p.m. eastern time. Apple’s invitation, seen above, reads simply “We’ve got a little more to show you.” Apple held an event last month to introduce its new iPhone 5 and iPod family.

In addition to a smaller iPad, Apple is expected to focus on its iBooks app where users can get magazines and newspapers and books on its portable devices. In addition, some rumors have Apple introducing a new full size iPad model, which would break the short, but yearly cycle we’ve seen with the iPad being introduced early in the year.

Apple is also said, according to reports, to be introducing a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with its ultra clear Retina Display now on some larger MacBooks, the iPhone 4, 4S and 5 as well as the latest iPad, the third generation model.

Otterbox iPhone 5 Defender Series cases brings peace of mind

The new Apple iPhone 5 is a work of art, it really is. It feels like a nice watch might, or something just, well, expensive. It’s so thin and light and seamless that it almost feels delicate, even if testing shows it’s the most shatter resistant iPhone ever made. (Click here to read our extended iPhone 5 review).

After a long debate with myself over the new iPhone or the Samsung Galaxy S III, which I also loved in extended testing, I decided the SIII was simply too big for my everyday uses and bought two iPhone 5s. When I took the phones out of the box, I was happy with my decision. The longer screen worked and the thinness of the devices was amazing. I carried a black one around in the pocket for a week but fretted every second that I might drop it, scratch it — or both.

If you’re like me, you want a case. I have used Otterbox Defender Series cases ($50) in the past and was curious how they might work with iPhone 5. Defenders are about the most coverage you can get, with the phone going into a plastic shell, with a plastic cover for the screen, then you wrap it all in a silicon cover.

Short of getting wet, I’ve always felt this case — and others like it — were about the most about the biggest piece of mind you can get.

Only for the added protection, your phone is going to be much thicker and heavier. That turns off some folks.

Otterbox Commuter Case

Otterbox makes another popular case, the Commuter Series ($35), which is nearly as good but much, much thinner. It’s lighter, and for the iPhone 5, it does the job well. I’d recommend it for folks who want that thin form factor. The phone slips into a plastic cover and then wraps in silicone. There’s a clear screen cover that’s included that adds a small layer of protection for the front, and is one of the easiest to install, sans bubbles, that I’ve tried.

But wanting that industrial protection, I really wanted to try the new Defender Series. And after using it for a few weeks, I want to declare to you that it’s a hit. If you want max protection for your iPhone, I’d definitely give this case a try.

One of the problems with older Otters, is that the silicon cover, which comes in multiple colors and feels absolutely darling in the hand, would tend to lose its snug fit over time, and start to pull away from the plastic case it surrounded. This was particularly a problem at the bottom of the case, where there was a covered housing that pulled back to insert the 30-pin connector power cable.

There were also several parts of the silicone that had to go over items at the top of the smaller iPhone design that contributed to this problem as well. Otterbox engineers have tried to address this issue by strengthening that area at the bottom. It’s noticeably stronger and tougher and we’ll see how it holds over time (I’ll report back), but for now, I will rate this case a 5 out of 5 (see photos below of iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S Otterbox cases)

Why? It’s simple

The new Otterbox iPhone 5 Defenders Series does what it says it does. It still uses the three-part protection — slide your phone into the plastic case, snap in the plastic screen cover and wrap the whole thing in silicone — but the silicone shell seems to be much stronger and because iPhone 5 is thinner, the Defender Series is much thinner, too. It has openings for the front and rear cameras. It tightly covers the left side volume and mute controls and has openings for the speakers at bottom while covering the Lightning port connector and the headphone connector.

Most of all, it just gets out of the way. I got two black Otters, but now I wish I had gotten a white and gray one for the white phone and the neon green for the black. Good news is there are many color choices, from pink to green to blue. Better news, I had a really bad horrendous drop the other day. I sat the phone in my lap in the car and was talking via Bluetooth. I stopped and got out of the car. Not only did the phone slid out and crash down on the curb and then onto the parking lot…but as I exited the vehicle and not yet realizing what happened, I also stepped on the phone.

Yes, I cringed.

Probably if I didn’t have the Otterbox Defender on that day, I wouldn’t be writing this review — with my voice — on my iPhone 5.

Word to the wise.

2KSports’ NBA 2K13 is the best basketball game ever, 12-year-old critic claims

By popular demand we’ve brought back the 12-year-old critic. We’ll be turning him loose on video games, basketball shoes and other sorts of tech stuff that kids are into. His expert opinion is a little different than your average 45 or 46 year old bloke trying to figure out what the green button does on the controller.

So we turned him loose on 2K Sports’ new NBA sim, NBA 2K13.  The game was executive produced by rapper and music mogul Jay-Z, who helped pull together the game’s soundtrack and helped with the visual “feel” of the game. He also helped get the ’92 Dream Team digitized into the game, so you can play the ’92 guys against the 2012 team (not sure why folks even brought that up for discussion; ’92 by 20).

To our eyes, this is a very visually appealing game. It looks quite close to a TNT or ESPN television broadcasts with very loud and realistic sounds and cheering. Players mimic their real-life counterparts, down to LeBron James tossing that white powder into the air or James Harden running down the court after a 3, nearly dragging three fingers on the floor. You can even go into the NBA Draft mode and wear an ugly suit onto the podium to meet NBA commissioner David Stern.

NBA 2K13 doesn’t miss a trick.

For the 12-year-old Critic it all added up to a very satisfying experience. His review:

NBA 2K13 is out and rolling.

NBA 2K13 is the best basketball game I have seen yet.

First lets start out with gameplay and controls. I really love the gameplay and the new control stick. I like the new control stick because I feel like it is easier to make dribble moves, make people fall and go to the hospital because of a sprained ankle. The game play and graphics are amazing.

The game feels like real life.

The physics and animations they put in the game are great. There is no more of that changing shot stuff when you go into the paint. It’s very cool.

One game mode I like is My Career. It’s an new change from last year. You have a social media page where you can see what fans and other players think about you. You also have this new thing called signature skills. It will upgrade your skill by a little bit more so you can do better on the court.

Also you can go to Legends Training Camp and learn from the greats even MJ. My Player has been inverted into where you pick your dress for Game Day Arrival, the Game, and My Player Blacktop. My player blacktop is where you can take your own my player and put him up against other people’s my players.

Another big change is the Virtual Currency. Instead of using skill points you use Virtual Currency (VC) to upgrade attributes. You can earn VC by doing any game mode in the game. You get so much VC for each thing you do. Its a great fun new way to play the game.

The last real big change is a game mode called My Team. It is where you start of with terrible NBA players and you try to progress your team until they become really good. This mode is like Connected Careers on Madden 13 if you play as a coach. This mode is really fun but requires a lot of VC so save up if you want to enjoy this mode.

NBA 2K13 is the best NBA game ever. I give this game a 9.5/10 rating. This game is really fun to play and a must buy. Have Fun!

New adidas Derrick Rose 3.0 shoes: our 12-year-old critic says they’re a winner

Adidas has released a new signature shoe, the adidas Rose 3.0, and we wanted to give you a review about it. The shoe is full of technology — materials to make it lighter, more responsive. It’s also got quite an eye-catching design. Adidas, every year, gets closer and closer to Nike’s cool style. Of course, we wanted to review the shoes but needed an expert to do it.

In the past here, you’ve probably read a few reviews by The 11-Year-Old Critic. We like using the youth to review some things like video games and hot new basketball shoes because, well, 11 year olds tend to have a better grip on this stuff than us quatro-generians (is that a word?).

In any event, the 11-year-old Critic became The 12-Year-Old Critic and is soon to be The 13-Year-Old Critic. As we dusted him out of early retirement, we found that his world view has changed. Xbox 360 now trumps PlayStation 3 — “It’s no contest,” he quips — and he’s not sure if Nintendo’s new videogame system due next month is going to move the needle.

“Graphically,” he says, “it catches up to PS3 and Xbox, but it needs to blow us away and I’m not sure it’ll do that. Plus, how are we going to convince our parents to buy a new system AND buy all our favorite games for it, games we probably already have?”

These are good questions from our young wise “Reverse” Yoda, but we were interested in his opinions of adidas’ new Derrick Rose third-generation shoe, the Rose 3.0, that went on sale recently. adidas literally has a lot invested in Rose, whom its signed to a 13-year, $85 million deal last year.

The new shoe debuts with a new signature clothing line and a new logo, made of Rose petals, that adorns the outside of the shoe’s tongue. adidas will releases seven “colorways,” and three are available now: black, trimmed in red; gray trimmed in red; and bright green, a colorway adidas terms “electricity.” The shoes retail from $160 to $180.

After wearing them for a bit, here’s the word from our soon-to-be teenage critic.

The D Rose 3 are a very good pair of basketball shoes. They are really light, and it almost feels like you don’t have a shoe on. They have good ankle support and cushion. Compared to the 2011 version Nike Kevin Durants I usually play in, these D Rose 3.0s are better. They are much lighter and have more cushion. The new Lebron X models from Nike, which I like the looks of, are much heavier than the D Rose 3.

I would recommend you play in the shoes. Not to mention but they also have great grip. adidas did a great job on this shoe. I give these shoes a 9.0/10 rating. These are a good fit for guards and I think you should buy them

From the mouth of babes, right?

Apple to announce smaller iPad Mini Oct. 23, but how much will it cost?

Three days before Microsoft’s new Surface tablet is set to hit stores, Apple will hold a special invitation media session to introduce the much anticipated iPad Mini, according to allthingsd.

No press invitations have been sent out yet, but longtime Apple watcher Jim Dalrymple of loopsight has quoted the report and added a cryptic “Yep” comment below. Dalrymple is long known to have deep Apple sources and his single word “yep” and “nope” pronouncements are usually always true.

But, c’mon, we knew this was coming. There are even asian manufacturers selling iPad Mini cases at 7.85 inches. The bigger question is price.

Let’s assume the rumors of the 7.85 screen are true. That’s bigger than Nexus 7 or the smaller version of Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD. The bigger questions, of course, are will iPad Mini have the following:

1. Retina display
2. Front AND rear cameras
3. 3G and 4G LTE support
4. A sub $300 price point

We think you can count on Apple including its new smaller Lightning charging port on the new iPad Mini, but if they add the mini-port to the iPad Mini, shouldn’t they also go ahead and update the 10-inch iPad to the new cable, too? In iPad’s brief history, Apple has always updated it early in the year, not later, and many customers’ versions of “The New iPad” aren’t a half-year old yet, so the idea of a “New, New iPad” might be a bit odd, but if Apple can make it thinner and lighter (remember, iPad 3 was heavier than iPad 2) and make other subtle improvements as well as adding the new charging port, we think it would make sense to do a mid-year refresh ahead of a March announcement of iPad 4.

On the other points, it might make sense for Apple to go bare bones with one version of the iPad Mini and push it out there as cheaply as it can. Right now, the new 4-inch iPod Touch goes for $299, so many pundits speculate Apple couldn’t possibly produce a smaller iPad and sell it for less.

Think about this as a possibility.

The iPod Touch is a feature rich device. It does everything the new iPhone 5 can do and does them nearly as well in some cases and identically as well in others. So if Apple were to release two versions of iPad Mini, you could hit a cheaper price point with a WiFi only device, no cameras, no retina display. Then you could have a full figured iPad Mini for $349 or $399 that has retina, 4G LTE, all the bells and whistles.

We don’t know what Apples plans are, but we’ll keep you updated and be sure to tune to these pages for live updates from the announcement Oct. 23.
