CNET has a good article that has links to everything you need to know about the iPad. The new retina display is a great enhancement for the iPad3 and now gives the iPad the same viewing quality that we love on the iPhone. The iPad is definitely a great mobile device. But be warned, many app developers still develop apps exclusively for the iPhone and not the iPad and vice versa. So, make sure when you download an app from the App Store that you check if an app is developed exclusively for the iPhone or iPad. iPhone exclusive apps run on the iPad but shows up only as the size of the iPhone screen. To develop an app that works on both devices requires additional coding to make the program run on various sizes. You can learn about this at Start Code's advanced lab.

Ashton Kutcher is primarily known as the former husband of Demi Moore, the star of Two and Half Men and the creator of MTV's Punk'd. What is less known is that Ashton is a savvy business investor in start-up tech companies. His investments include hot tech startups such as Hipmumk, Flipboard, Airbnb and Fab.com as well as many others. Ashton even caused a bit of a stir when he did some "free" in-show promotion on Two and a Half Men of his investments by fixing the company logos on a laptop during his show debut. The show Kutcher’s debut episode drew an astounding 28.7 million viewers and his investments got a lot of free advertising.
Recently, Ashton posted a video on his Chime.in page http://chime.in/user/aplusk/chime/65212623003529216 in which he asserts his opinion on the need for high school students to learn Computer Coding. He feels that Computer Coding is essential for students today. Companies like Facebook, Apple and Google are constantly looking to hire developers and he believes that programming jobs are one of the most important careers going forward. Ashton even makes the point that Comptuer Coding should be a core class in the high school education system.
Given the economic troubles that we are experiencing in the US, schools with limited and reduced budgets are not able to meet this need in which Ashton talks about in the video. Start Code believes in Ashton's vision and we strive to bring Computer Coding skills to the teens and young adults. At Start Code, the next generation will have the chance to learn a skill set that will be the foundation for a succesful future.
