iPad 2

The iPad 2 is coming soon, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal that said the next-generation device is currently in production.
Citing "people familiar with the matter" the new slimmer, lighter iPad will include a faster processor, a camera, and more memory. The resolution of the display, however, won't get much of an upgrade from the existing model, the report said.
The fact that the iPad 2 is coming isn't groundbreaking news, however. Apple has a pretty consistent history of sticking to a one-year update cycle for many of its products. The first iPad hit stores last April, so it could be logically assumed that the new version is on its way.
The Apple rumor mill has a history of prolific, unconfirmed reports. Last week a "Reuters eyewitness" claimed to spot the new iPad at the launch of News Corp.'s iPad-only newspaper, The Daily.
iPad accessory makers have also fueled the rumor fire, with several companies churning out cases that have features like an opening for a camera (which the current iPad lacks) or a space for a larger speaker. But as as PC Mag noted recently, these reports should be taken with a grain of salt. Apple rarely, if ever, comments on rumors. Not surprisingly, an Apple spokesperson declined to comment on the WSJ report.
The iPad has been the dominant tablet on the market, selling 14.8 million units in the nine months since its release, according to Apple. iPad sales made up 17 percent of Apple's revenue in the last quarter, totaling $4.6 billion, the company recently said in an earnings report.

Chevrolet 2011 Camaro SS Convertible

Ever since my parents bought a Pontiac G6 Hard Top Convertible I haven't been too crazy about convertibles in general. I tend to like small, quick cars as opposed to large and bulky, which is seemingly what the Camaro has been and will be. I dislike convertibles because being in the back seat is terrible, my experience has been with only two doors, which is what the Camaro is, and we've had terrible trouble with our soft top we had, and with the hard top control mechanism. Some specs of the 2011 Camaro Convertible - 6 Speed Manual @ 426HP. 0-60 is 4.9 seconds. The base models will run you $37,500 and up. I like the look of the car, but I don't like the price tag and interior of it. Like mustangs, I believe that the Camaro is cheap inside with hard plastics that easily scratch. The convertible is currently a soft top which I believe truly looks ugly when up, making it not a daily driver if you live anywhere with snow. My opinion on this car is that while it has substantial power, without the top down it doesn't look sleek and the price is ridiculous.

New Blog!

Today I decided I would give blogging a try! *Claps* I've never done anything like this, and am looking for a way to be more creative in writing. I decided to stick to two of the areas I know best as far as content goes, cars and technology. A little about myself, I live in CT, I'm a senior in High School, I love my 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse and everything about technology.   I'd like to jump right in to posting, with a little bit of my views on the new 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible.
