With all the big news settling down a bit about the launch of the new iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2, we can focus our attention back on Apple in general and how it measures up to the competition.
It can run on 2G, 3G and 4G networks, has an 8MP camera on the back and a 1.2MP camera on the front, an internal card slot storage of 16, 32 or 64 GB, and Siri. While the entire world isn't an iPhone fan, it was the top-selling smartphone out of the major four in September 2013, handily beating out competitors on all four U.S. carriers. Its easy-to-use interface, compact size and availability in the mid-range group has combined to make the iPhone the most popular smartphone- for now.

At Pad & Quill we are ramping up for the holiday season amidst the excitement of the new iPhone 5's and the much anticipated release of iPad Air. In a typical release cycle, Mr. PQ sketches out copy with our marketing department and shoots it to me for editorial review and revision. My apologies to my fellow grammar autocrats, there might be a few misses in the copy soon to be released. (There might also be a little coupon love for those who help me out, message us on Facebook with your insights.)
The other part of the process is working with our amazing photographers to capture our products in a way that convinces our customers you have smell-a-vision. You can’t walk into a Pad & Quill brick and mortar store, but CT Ryan Photography get’s you pretty darn close. Yesterday we shot in a remarkable and historic section of downtown St. Paul. It was a perfectly crisp fall day, replete with a rain/snow mix. Being as I loathe having my picture taken, much less broadcast across social media, I reverted to my five year old Chrysanthemum and donned my favorite comfy sweater and cowboy boots. I announced to our photography team that my boots were my statement of contradiction, because you might shoot me in an urban setting with our soon to be released and incredibly hip bags, but I’m keeping my feet grounded in my country roots. Turns out the photogs loved my boots and booya, my little feet may make a global internet appearance.
Which brings me back to web copy editing. I’m a little behind. There was laundry to be done and homework to be reviewed. So I folded laundry and quizzed the youngster in vocab words. Which brings me back to Mr. PQ, who would like to dress J. Hilburn but has more of a Woot.com budget.
Following close behind the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, the iPad 5 launches tomorrow! At Pad and Quill, we’ve been reading about it non-stop, trying to suss out what exactly the new iPad will contain. With this one being the last in a series of posts, we’ll explore new features of the iPad 5 until the tablet becomes public.

We have had long enough to consider them, that's for sure! After almost a year and 1/2 since the big retina iPad release, Apple is about to introduce the new iPad 5. Multiple tech websites have confirmed that the new slimmer and faster iPad 5 is to be revealed on October 22nd.
Kari, myself and the team have been working with new materials and unique designs that will make your iPad 5 not only more protected, but dare we say, appropriately adorned.
We went back to the drawing board on some of our most popular cases. I cannot wait to show you some of the huge improvements we've made. These are killer changes that combine bindery materials, genuine leathers and wood to craft 'ampersand' worthy iPad 5 cases.
We have a one time newsletter going out for our new iPad 5 cases. Sign up below and we will only email ONCE when our new cases are available to order.
There is something else coming soon as well. Something I've poured myself into over the past 6 months. This is a big change for Pad & Quill, one we are stoked to introduce. Stay tuned for some big announcements over the next few weeks!
I actually heard a case maker recently say that they do not like wood and don't want it being in the way of the iPhone (inferring us in the comment). Really? Isn't finished wood in an iPhone cover sorta...amazing? Another maker decided to use plastic to hold iPhones in their covers.
Welcome to the last part in this three-part review on Apple's latest software update, iOS 7. In the time span between the last review and this one, Apple's already gone ahead with a tweak...that adds up to absolutely nothing at all.
But, this blog post isn't about that! Rather, it'll be showcasing the last round of hits and misses in some of the new features.
