With a name that was once mocked as Apple’s entry into “feminine hygiene products,” the iPad has become yet another of the brand’s ubiquitous, can’t-live-without-it devices. Just a couple hours ago, Apple announced the release of their third-generation iPad. Apple’s website is calling it simply the New iPad. The greatest advancements in this new version are in the display. Driven by a smoking new A5X chip, powering 3.1 million pixels, it is hands down the sharpest, most high definition display ever. It is literally four-times better than the iPad2. The new iSight camera is also a major upgrade. We could go on but we know you just want to see the video. It’s all pretty awesome, try not to hemorrhage.

Sorry to all you Jimmy Buffett fans but the ZIK Parrot headphones have nothing to do with getting wasted again in Margaritaville. They’re actually super-advanced Bluetooth, noise-cancelling headphones. The design won a Hot Stuff award at CES for its laundry list of unique features. For one, the entire earpiece acts as a touch panel for easy swipe control. They also feature Digital Signal Processing which creates their “concert hall effect”, making all your music sound like you’re in the front row at a live show. When you take them off they switch to standby mode automatically.
