Review: Zand, the stand that makes using the iPad at a desk comfortable

The Zand is a desktop stand designed to be used with the iPad. It is constructed out of brushed aluminum. To use the stand, there’s no adhesives, clamps or hooks used to make the device stick to it. Instead it uses nanoparticle adsorption to keep the iPad in place.

The base of the stand lifts the iPad a couple of inches off of the desk, so that it sits slightly higher at eye level, which makes it easy to see. The base mimics the look and feel (texture wise, obviously it’s a lot lighter at 8.5 oz) of the base of the iMac.

Just like the base of the iMac, there’s a hole on the back for the Lightning cable. Most of the time, I used the Zand in the upright mode so I was able to use Duet Display (review here) on my iPad mini and MacBook Air.

While using the iPad on the Zand, at first I was skeptical about how well the iPad would stay on.

Apple plans to start selling the 12.9-inch iPad Pro on Wednesday, November 11th via both its physical retail and online stores, according to multiple sources. Apple previously only said that the large tablet would become available during the month of November, a couple of months after the introduction in early September. The iPad Pro’s marquee accessories, the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, will also become available for purchase on November 11th. The iPad Pro starts at $799 and comes in both 32GB and 128GB configurations with WiFi only. An LTE-compatible version comes exclusively in the 128GB configuration and costs upwards of $1000. We reported earlier this week that Apple’s support staff is scheduled to complete iPad Pro training by November 6th, less than a week prior to the launch.

FiftyThree’s Pencil stylus for the iPad now available at Apple Stores, online and retail

FiftyThree, the company behind the popular iPad drawing app Paper, has announced that its pressure-sensitive iPad stylus Pencil is now available at the Apple Store for $49.99. Apple is rumored to be launching the 12-inch iPad ‘Pro’ with a Stylus accessory so maybe that’s the new thing.

Pencil was first launched in November 2013.

Pencil is now available at Apple! For the first time ever, see Pencil up close and get it at your local Apple store.

Pencil is currently available in the US, Canada and Europe, with “worldwide availability coming soon.” If you can’t yet get it from your local Apple Store, it’s also available on Amazon. We are also giving away a couple of Pencils this week as a part of our Made in America spotlight on FiftyThree.

The Paper app was updated in November with Adobe Creative Cloud integration, push notifications and sharing directly with the online community Mix.

As someone with years of experience of pushing the battery-life of laptops to the limit, the iPad was something of a revelation. If we ignore the time I stupidly left the Smartcover auto on/off engaged while it was in a bicycle pannier on a London to Paris cycle ride, I’ve literally never run out of power.

However, since I was reviewing the Digital Treasures Powerflask, I thought I would look at the company’s Props Power Case at the same time. The concept is a simple one: a protective case with a built-in battery. Plug your iPad into the case, and the case provides the power…
