If the iPad is to use riot shield, iPod Touch could, thanks to its built-in speaker, psychologically destroy the enemy by bombing Gangnam Style. Or maybe you do not understand.
The news should be taken with caution, but our colleagues to Electronista , the Department of Defense is preparing to order a veritable army of iOS devices. We’re talking pretty surreal number of 650,000 units.
A priori, the order would consist of 120,000 iPad, iPad Mini 100,000, 200,000 and 210,000 iPhone iPod Touch different generations. And if you can clearly see what needs to be answered much of the equipment, if the iPod Touch is still a bit more complicated to decode. But we do not doubt the relevance of a choice that has certainly been well thought through decision makers dealing with heavy budget problems.
In the story, the big loser is Blackberry because the proposed order should be used to replace the 470,000 terminals Canadian business. However, the CEO of the firm said himself a few days ago that iOS was exceeded . To U.S. authorities, the ecosystem Blackberry 10 seems in any case much less convincing.

Recently, Tecca reported that when your new iPad display shows it’s at 100% power, the battery may still be charging. Apple is responding to the report, saying that it’s not a bug, it’s a feature.
When your iPad says that it’s powered up to 100%, the device indeed may still be charging. That’s because of how the batteries in iPads and other Apple iOS devices work — once they reach a full charge, they discharge a bit. The battery then begins a cycle of charging and discharging at near-full power until its unplugged.
“The circuitry is designed so you can keep your device plugged in as long as you would like,” says Apple VP Michael Tchao. “It’s a great feature that’s always been in iOS.” The bottom line here: When your iPad or iPhone says it’s at 100% power, it’s not actually at full power. That battery indicator, while a good rule of thumb, isn’t really a legitimate measure of anything.
