No Porn, Or Even Nipples, On The iPad

For an electronic device named after feminine hygiene products, the iPad isn’t loving the lady parts. Because of Steve Jobs’ desire for “moral responsibility,” pornographic content is blocked from the iPad. The device has a stringent anti-nipple policy and this extends to art photography. In order to publish on the iPad, magazines like Dazed &

Inevitable: The Louis Vuitton iPad Case

We’re actually surprised this hadn’t happened sooner, but here she is: the Louis Vuitton iPad case, available in the iconic LV logo leather or a smoky graphic print. Predictably, the price tag hovers around some 350 dollars. Another surprise—these models aren’t out yet, and apparently won’t hit stores until 2011. Either people are running to…

Will The iPad Change The Way We Shop?

Post-iPhone fashion app boom, retailers are now focusing on iPad-specific applications for the new Apple product. And some believe that the device is about to revolutionize the way we think about fashion and shopping. For starters, the idea of mobile shopping may become more palatable. Are you really going to buy a $500 Marchesa gow…

Diesel’s Stupid Contest Is Kind Of Smart

We’re the first to admit that Diesel’s Be Stupid ad campaign annoys the hell out of us. For lack of a better word, it’s just, well, stupid. So when we heard that the denim brand was rolling out a contest to go along with the campaign, we weren’t exactly thrilled. As is turns out, though,…

Get A Cat And A Free iPad Stand Is Included

Cats and iPads come together once again! We know that kitties can be driven crazy by Apple’s new invention, but can they work in harmony? Some iPad owners have found the answer is yes. It seems that if you’re sick of the pesky task of holding your iPad, a cat is happy to take it…

Cruel Nerd Tortures Cat With His iPad

Yes, this is what some people spent $500 for last weekend: a very expensive kitty toy. The look he gives his owner while he’s “playing” the “piano” is priceless, though. [Urlesque]…

Goes Together Like Bacon And An iPad?

Should have seen this one coming. Seriously, what is it about the image of bacon that makes people put it everywhere—bras, iPod cases, masking tape, wallets. Is it because it’s retro? Or just oh-so delicious? Bacon is funny … but why? Truth be told, we’re rather into it, and could definitely jump into the frying…

6 Must-Have Fashion Apps For The iPad

Not to sound like a whiny brat, but the Gilt app for the iPhone kind of disappoints. They meant well, but the small screen means it’s hard to pass judgment on tiny frocks under all that limited time offer pressure. Blessedly, a handful of iPad apps have swooped in to solve challenging First World issue…

But Will Those Louboutins Blend?

Almost as prevalent as links to iPad reviews are links to this “But Will It Blend?” video in which the geeky host takes a glorious iPad, cracks it in half and reduces the poor thing to dust in a blender. It’s the latest in Blendtec’s series of “Will It Blend?” videos, all of which…

Would You Be Into Reading A Fashion Mag On An iPad?

In an apparent bid to win over the droves of geeks and sleek tech lovers salivating over the iPad, magazine publisher Condé Nast plans to tailor the content of a few of its mags to work with Apple’s soon-to-be-released digi-tablet. Glamour, The New Yorker, GQ and Wired are the test magazines for the project, with…

Where To Store Your iPad? In A Giant-Ass Maxi Pad, Of Course

Oh, shut up, Apple. You asked for it by giving the iPad a stupid name: Fab crafters HipHandmaids on Etsy have stitched up a $30 maxi pad-shaped “iMaxi” carrying case. The iMaxi, with a vinyl exterior and cotton interior, comes in white, red or white/red if you’re going for that “thank God I’m not pregnant”…

MadTV Predicted The iPad Years Ago

You know how everyone has been going period-joke crazy since the announcement of the iPad, Apple’s new gadget? Well MadTV, that now-defunct “Saturday Night Live”-esque sketch comedy show, essentially predicted it in a skit a few years ago. Their “iPad” is a menstruation aid that links up to your computer, which frankly sounds more…

4 Ways The iPad Could Change Fashion

Admit it. Half the fun of getting your iPhone was shopping for cases and fingerless gloves afterward. So the Los Angeles Times makes a good point: What style accompaniments will the iPad produce? Two words: Big. Pockets. (Insert “Is that an iPad in your pants or are you just happy to see me?” jokes here.)…

True Confessions: I Married A Nerd

I love my husband. He’s a fantastic gent who makes swoon-worthy stuffed french toast, fixes my bicycle when it breaks down, and plus he loves me and stuff. But, when there’s a new tech update, I shudder. It’s a reflex. If only Steve Jobs could see what he did to me last night at the…

Introducing The Apple iPad, The Most Period-y Sounding Gadget Ever

I couldn’t care less about Apple’s BIG! EXCITING! ANNOUNCEMENT! today, since I can still barely operate my iPhone. But it has come to my attention that Apple’s new gadget’s name — the iPad — is the most period-y sounding product name in history. (All right, maybe not as period-y as the iTampon. Don’t give them…
