    The iPad is a tablet computer designed by Apple. It is mainly marketed for ebook, magazine, and newspaper reading, as well as internet surfing. Released in April 2010, Apple has since sold 2 million iPads.
    Similar to the older (and smaller) iPod Touch and iPhone, the iPad runs a modified version of the iOS and is controlled by a touch display sensitive to fingertips, instead of a stylus as with earlier tablet computers.
    It runs iPad-specific applications as well as those written for the iPhone and iPod Touch, including e-book readers.
    The iPad uses Wi-Fi or a 3G data connection to browse the Internet, load and stream media, and install software.
    A USB cable is required to sync the iPad with iTunes on a computer.
    Apple’s first tablet computer was the Newton MessagePad 100,introduced in 1993, which led to the creation of the ARM6 processor core with Acorn Computers. Apple also developed a prototype PowerBook Duo-based tablet, the PenLite, but in order to avoid hurting MessagePad sales did not sell it.Apple released several more Newton-based PDAs, and discontinued the last, the MessagePad 2100, in 1998.

    Hello my name is Kirsten Malsam and I attend Columbus Grove Elementary. As I have been searching I have recently discovered one of the newest sorts of technology, which is the apple Ipad. It has all of the regular programs that a normal computer would have plus more. In today’s day in age we can come up with all new things and to me I think that the touch screen is amazing! To be able to just touch whatever you want and for it to respond as wanted it is pretty cool. The Apple Ipad is made in different styles along with different prices. The more the device offers the more the pirce is. A 16 gb with only wi-fi is as total of $499.00. A 32gb is $ 599.00 and a 64gb is $699.00. There is also a version that offers wi-fi and 3g. A 16gb with both offerings cost around $629.00. A 32gb that offers both is about $729.00 and a 64gb that offers both is around $829.00. The way the ipod and ipad have took off is very impressive. The appearance of the ipod is very useful. The weight and the slimness off the ipod is very helpful to a person who travels a lot or just does a lot with computers. So if we have technology like this today imagine what we will have when I’m an adult! Can’t wait to find out.

    My name is Brad Schmitz. I go to Glandorf Elementary.
    The trend I am doing is the DSI system. This system, made by Nintendo, does many things.
    One of the many features of this system is snapping photos. You can take the photos, then you can edit them up, by blurring up the image or doing something else. Say you take a picture of your friend and you at Cedar Point with a roller coaster in the background.With the DSI, you can make your hair spiky, your friend’s mouth the humongus, and flip the roller coaster upside down. Talk about funny!
    Another cool feature is being able to download games (not ones that you can buy with money) for DSI points. You can get them by buying a Wii of DSI point card at a gaming store or a local supermarket. These games are not as great as money-buyable games, but some can provide endless hours of fun. Photo Dojo, one of these games, is ultimately fun. You take pictures of of any living object, such as your dog Scruffy, in different poses. Then you can fight with Scruffy against someone else. So the game can end up going with Scruffy standing on the TV shouting like Tarzan while creaming Uncle Ted with a toaster oven.
    The last feature I am going to talk about is the SD card slot. You can stick an SD card in the DSI, take a picture, and put it in another thing, such as your Wii, camera, or labtop and edit it up. But you can also just edit it with the DSI.
    The DSI sounds awesome, doesn’t it? Well, you can buy it for only $200!

    Hello my is Tiffany Koenig. I live in small town called Leipsic, Ohio. I do think 2010 Summer Tech Camp 2010 is awesome and at lunch Alex brought in the movie Alice in Wonderland. [ the movie is the one that just got out and we watched the begging of the movie] My opinion about Alice in Wonderland is that it’s good. The new technology is an ipad it’s just like an ipod touch and it’s like a computer but the ipad has a touch screan.

It is programed to sense your movements so you don’t have to use controllers. Talk about getting excercise . It comes out in the fall of 2010. It also will have less crashes on it. Now you wont see as many “red ring of death” anymore. It will also have a new motherboard. Some old xbox games will be playable on the new xbox 360. This new xbox 360 is called xbox 360 Natal. It will also have a new video camera accessory. It doesn’t have the greatest looking ring to it.

    I am going to tell you about Bluetooth technology. Bluetooth replaces wires and cables for electronics. It is was organized to have a good year in the year of 2004. The companies that see trends first, are very confident of the trends they find. A while back, the companies said that companies who make products like headsets and key boards focused on perfecting one piece of the bluetooth technologoy.

    My name is Jade M. Zeller. I go to Kalida Schools. A new technology trend is the iPod Touch. I think that iPod Touches are AWESOME . On the ipods, you can play games and listen to music. You can also text, call, and look at videos. The ipods are thinner and have a bigger screen. This tecchnology will someday change the entire world. Almost everybody has a cell phones.

    This is a report done by Alex.This is a story about the new x-box.I think it will be something kids will buy.I think we have enough x-boxes. We should just accept the things we have .More kids will stay inside instead of outside.They should help kids with education.Why do you need video games in life.It will damage your eyes.There should be more education games to. I do think kids could do thirty min. a week of it while you can do other stuff.

    Hi. My name is Alex Hoehn. I am a sixth grader attending Glandorf Elementary. One new computer technoligy trend that i researched is the ipad made by apple. The ipad is a new kind of pod that allows you to surf the web, view emails, take photos and watch videos. The I pad in fact has 20 different features which include cattagories like ibooks, maps, a calander, and a youtube feature. If you think that is quite a bit that’s only four features and there are twenty.The ipad also has over 200,000 apps you can either buy or there are a few free apps you can get. The ipad has a 9.7 inch screen which also has high definition that allows it to have better quality than the Ipod touch. The ipad also has a notes feature which allows you to easily and quickly jot down notes. One more feature I am going to tell you about is the mail feature. With this app you can easily view your emails with the touch of a finger. I hope you have changed your mind about the ipad, most people think its just an over sized ipod touch but its much more.

    My name is Alivia Kaufman and a new technology trend that came out a little bit ago was the iPod touch. I bet most of you have already heard about this iPod touch. It is really cool because it has music, games, apps and so much more on this awesome iPod touch. It is the iPod ever because you can listen to music, watch movies, play games, surf the web, and so much more you could not even imagine. I am going to tell you about the features of the fun iPod touch. It starts with voice controls, voice memos, music, movies, TV shows, app stores, iTunes, photos, home screen, safari web browser, mail, maps, YouTube, Nike, iPod, and iPod Touch technology. You can get 1,750 songs on this one little thing that can fit in to your front pocket. WOW! You can also get 10,000 photos and this iPod Touch. I really can not believe my hands are typing this. It is just way to hard to believe. You can get all of that for just $199.00. I am going to go buy one right now.

    Hey, my name is Claire Westrick. One of the most recent things in the technology world is the Ipad. The new Ipad was developed by Apple. The Ipad is very capable of reading your favorite magazine or newspaper. You can also surf the web with this very handy device. The Ipad was released in April 2010 and so far 2 million have been sold. The Ipad is like a very large Ipod touch and a smaller portable laptop. The Ipad is controlled by touching the screen with your finger tips and moving them across the screen. The Ipad may have reasons for being useful, but there are some down points to them. One thing is that it is too big to put in your pocket. This is a very big downer for people who are always on the go. Another down point is that it is too large and heavy to hold why you are walking or taking a jog. To use this product you have to have a surface to put it on so you can use it. Overall this product would be very useful to a person who works at home or in an office all day, but not to someone always on the go needing a very small portable object.

    Hey, my name is Doc Calvelage. I go to Fort Jennings Elementary. A technology trend I found interesting was the solar car. Solar powered cars use photovoltaic cells (pvc) like solar panels. The (pvc) panels convert solar energy into electricity. The design of a solar powered car largely depends on the energy input that has been planned for it. Solar array that captures the energy of the sun and transforms it into electricity that contains hundreds of photovoltaic cells-some big arrays are capable of producing about 2 kilowatts of energy.

    Hello. My name is Bailey Eickholt. I go to Kalida schools. A new technology that I think is cool is the controller free game consouls. These game consouls don’t use a controller ,but instead they have sensers that pick up your movements. I think these will be easier to use because you won’t have to constantly hold a remote. It will also be easier to use because you can do more with your movements than with a remote. I can’t wait until these game consouls come out.
