Computerworld - If you've ever been to a store, you know the drill: Browse the merchandise, pick something, carry it to the checkout counter, maybe wait in line, pay, then walk out with your purchases and a receipt. Whether it's a clothing store, a grocery store or a coffee shop, you're likely to find a big counter with a cash register on it, and a person operating that cash register on the other side. You go to them; they don't come to you. Why? An American saloon owner named James Ritty invented the cash register in 1879. Since then, all cash registers have shared the characteristics of bigness, heaviness and bulkiness -- and have required the old walk-up-to-the-counter behavior in order to buy things.
The Ten One Design Pogo SketchPro stylus is a fantastic all-around style, with all around best in-class performance Ten One Design Pogo Sketch Pro, part of the Pogo Sketch line up of stylus pens , is one of the best we've had the pleasure use with the iPad. It's not as cheap or as specialized as some of the competition, however, so does the quality make up for it? Unlike some other iPad stylus pens, the Pogo Sketch Pro doesn't look like a traditional pen.
(Credit: James Martin/CNET) LOS ANGELES--You can forget about your dreams of an Xbox 360 Portable. That's so 2006. No, at this year's E3, Microsoft did something much more surprising: instead of getting proprietary, it hopped on everyone else's platform instead.
You’ve been downloading tons of apps, books, music, and movies galore, and when you go to download the latest great app you find yourself unable to, confronted with a “Cannot Download – There is not enough available storage” message.

From the iOS home screen tap on “Settings”, then tap “General” followed by “Usage”, this shows us how much space is available and what’s eating it all up The Usage list is sorted by total size, starting from the top look through the list for apps you no longer use
Earlier this month we shared a DIY touch-screen stylus for the iPad . That build was clever but unfinished looking. This version is polished and what commercial manufacturers should be bringing to market. As clever as the last DIY stylus was, it has wires, tape, and a cheap plastic body to contend with. It was functional but not very pretty and not interchangeable.
We've featured a few ways to make your own iPad or tablet stylus , but they're either kludgy or require some harder-to-find items. Technology "journalist" Walt Mosspuppet shows us how to make one out of just a candy bar wrapper and a pen. This method is remarkably clever (you know, for a drunk puppet), and is cheap and simple: you just need a capacitive candy wrapper and a pen. Most candy wrappers should work; I'd guess that you can tell which ones are capacitive by whether the inside is silver—if it just looks like white glossy paper, it probably won't work.

HTC, Samsung, LG, and China's Meizu already have quad-core processors in their phones, leading industry sources to believe that indeed, Apple will have to include a new chip to stay competitive.
Back at Macworld | iWorld 2012, TUAW editor-in-chief Victor Agreda had a chance to talk with the creator of the iBackFlip Somersault (US$89.95). Now that this iPad bag has been in the wild for a time and has gone through a few design revisions, we thought it would be a perfect opportunity to review the Somersault. Be sure to read through to the end of the post for details on entering to win an iBackFlip Somersault in a TUAW giveaway.
Smartpen maker Livescribe has for a few years been selling a product called the Pulse -- a pen that knows what you're writing. But it now has an upgraded version for 2010: the Echo. The original Pulse came with the ability to record audio alongside whatever you wrote with it.
Xappr is a gun accessory for your iPhone that'll instantly appeal to everyone from fans of the original Duck Hunt on Ninteno to the latest Halo or Call of Duty FPS shooters. Imagine, holding a weapon that looks like something out of a James Cameron sci-fi blockbuster, your iPhone safely mounted on top, your favorite shooting game loaded and ready, the grip tight on your hand, the trigger itching under your finger, your multi-player enemy right in your cross-hairs. How fun does that sound? The Xappr and Micro-Xappr guns are currently on preorder, but will be available in the EU, Isreal, U.S., and Canada this June. Apps will be required to support it and while there's only a handful right now, more should be coming soon. A lot more I hope, especially the Modern Combat, N.O.V.A. and other premiere App Store games.
Rumor has it that Apple is quietly tinkering with a new device dedicated to making gaming easier on iOS devices. During their 2012 iPad review, AnandTech mentioned: I know of an internal Apple project to bring a physical controller to market, but whether or not it will ever see the light of day remains to be seen. As smartphones and tablets come close to equalling the performance of current game consoles, I feel like the controller problem must be addressed. The best third-party attempt at hardware remotes dedicated to mobile that I've seen to date is Zeemote . but if Apple ends up providing native Bluetooth connection support for standard game controllers like the PS3's, it may circumvent the need for Apple to make anything themselves. Personally, I think the Wii remote would be best suited for the job, at least from a style standpoint.

Apple will soon unveil an update to its iCloud storage service that will add photo sharing and social features, the Wall Street Journal reports. While Dropbox , Box , Microsoft , and Google have dominated the cloud storage conversation in recent months, Apple has mostly stayed out of comparisons because it offers the dumbest (maybe “easiest” is the right word) cloud storage. It syncs your media across all iOS devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad), Macs, and PCs, but there is no way to manage what exactly goes where.
We realize that some of you may have had your fill of Facebook news today, so this is a perfect time to break out some zen thinking thanks to the master of Apple himself: Steve Jobs.
