Paper for the iPad

I’m a total sucker for a gorgeous looking app, and Paper is a gorgeous looking drawing, sketching, writing, moleskine replacement, app. Check out their demo video below.

It’s in-app purchase model is a little weird I guess, the app itself is free but you pay $1.99 a go for the drawing tools you want, i.e. sketching, outlining, writing, colouring…or for $7.99 you can get the lot.

Anyway, it’s in the App Store now.

Apple Offering iPad Refunds

Well I’m actually quite surprised about this outcome.

Computer giant Apple has offered to refund people who bought its new iPad, which it admits is not compatible with Telstra’s 4G network.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has taken legal action against Apple for what it claims are misleading statements over its new iPad.

Lawyers for the ACCC accused Apple of breaching consumer law by promoting the device as being able to connect to high-speed 4G mobile networks using a sim card.

The Federal Court heard Apple ignored warnings from the ACCC and was told the day before the iPad’s launch that it was misleading consumers.

Meanwhile, I won’t be returning mine, and I doubt that many other people will. This is just stupid posturing from the ACCC, and not much more than that.

Australian Consumer Watchdog Alleges Apple Of Misleading 4G Claims

Really I think the ACCC should go after Optus, Telstra, and all the other telco’s selling anything claiming to be 4G in Newcastle, and probably many other cities around the country, as we have no access what-so-ever to anything remotely 4G….shit our 3G is more often than not absolute garbage.

The ACCC is seeking urgent interlocutory relief to ensure consumers are made aware of the correct technical capabilities of this device. Additionally the ACCC is seeking final orders including injunctions, pecuniary penalties, corrective advertising and refunds to consumers affected.
