Research in Motion has recently posted a job listing on its website that reveals that the BlackBerry maker is looking to hire developers for an undisclosed iOS enterprise app to be distributed through Apple's App Store. A RIM spokesperson confirmed the rumours. As he said, “the company is indeed developing an iPhone app as part of its BlackBerry Mobile Fusion project.”
Along with the usual coding and communication skills, requirements called for a candidate well-versed in creating apps for both the iPhone and the iPad.
Apple is launching the new iPad in 25 more countries tomorrow.

On Tuesday Apple officially commented claims that the new iPad is running warmer that its predecessor.
"The new iPad delivers a stunning Retina display, A5X chip, support for 4G LTE plus 10 hours of battery life, all while operating well within our thermal specifications, Apple spokeswoman Trudy Miller said in a statement to The Loop. "If customers have any concerns, they should contact AppleCare."
Apple’s response came only couple hours after the publication of an infrared test that revealed the new iPad runs 10 degrees (Fahrenheit) hotter than the previous-generation iPad 2. The temperatures of the new iPad, however, remain well within Apple's specified operating temperature of 32 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit, or 0 to 35 degrees Celsius.

Yesterday we reported that the new iPad is running warmer that its predecessor. Repair Labs has conducted their own analysis and found that the A5X chip in the new device runs as much as 16 degrees Fahrenheit (about 9.5 degrees Celsius) warmer than the A5 chip in the iPad 2.
According to a series of tests conducted by Repair Labs, the A5X chip registered temperatures up to 36 degrees celsius (96.8 degrees Fahrenheit), compared to A5 readings of 27 degrees C (80.6 degrees F). The experiment involved opening up the tablets in order to directly measure the temperatures of the chips.
When the original iPad was released, there weren’t many apps available for the device. So Apple allowed apps developed for the iPhone’s smaller display to run on the iPad by using emulation. The apps could use only a fraction of the iPad’s display. Alternatively, iPhone-specific apps could be run in a 2x mode, utilizing pixel doubling technique to fill the iPad’s display. However, in 2x mode text and artwork look pixilated and blocky.

Thermal imaging of the third-generation iPad and the iPad 2 demonstrates that the recently released iPad running 10 degrees (Fahrenheit) hotter than its predecessor.
Dutch site Tweakers.net performed the GLBenchmark test on the two generations of iPads for five minutes to measure a heat difference. Using an infrared camera, the publication discovered that the hottest part of the new iPad was 33.6 degrees Celsius (92.5 Fahrenheit), while the iPad 2 measured 28.3 degrees Celsius (83 Fahrenheit).
On Monday iFixit also get their hand on the recently released Apple TV. Having disassembled the device, the team found that this version of Apple’s set-top box does not have a thermal pad, suggesting it runs even cooler than its predecessor.
Even though it apparently runs cooler, the new CPU is more capable and allows users to output 1080p high-definition video content. The device still has the same power supply, though, providing 3.4V at 1.57A.
An earlier disassembly of the new Apple TV discovered that the updated set-top box features the same 8 gigabytes of storage as its predecessor. Monday's latest peek inside the Apple TV also found two antennae inside the device. The addition is presumed to boost signal strength in the latest Apple TV.
With the iPad 3 now available on the mass market, we are starting to see more benchmark tests comparing the iPad 3 to the iPad 2 and other handsets.
Insanely Great Mac
During the early Monday call, which outlined a surprise stock dividend and buyback plan for the company's $100 billion cash horde, Cook said that "[Apple] had a record weekend and we're thrilled with it." Apple also announced yesterday that it has sold 3 million new iPads in less the four days of availability.
It should be noted, however, that pre-ordered items are commonly not counted as sales until a transaction is complete and thus those iPads that are awaiting shipment were most likely not part of the final tally.
“The new iPad is a blockbuster with three million sold―the strongest iPad launch yet,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “Customers are loving the incredible new features of iPad, including the stunning Retina display, and we can't wait to get it into the hands of even more customers around the world this Friday.”

According to The Wall Street Journal, Sharp Corporation is still doing its best to start ramp up production of Retina displays for the new iPad. The company is expected to start shipments in the nearest feature.
The panels are to be used in Apple Inc.'s new iPad, according to people familiar the matter. The first batch of the U.S. company's newest tablet, released Friday, were not equipped with Sharp's LCD panels after the Japanese company faced difficulty in customizing the screens according to Apple's requirements, one of the people said last week.
Thanks to various teardowns, we already know that the A5X system-on-a-chip is being manufactured by Samsung and is using the same 45-nm process used for the A5 package in earlier devices. Having stripped down the new iPad, UBM TechInsights found that the amount of area taken up by the quad-core graphics found in the A5X, a significant boost from the dual-core graphics found in the A5.
What should be noted is that the processor cores from ARM are identical in look but the extra real estate on the processors (the A5 measures at approx. 120 mm^2 vs. the A5X which measures at 163 mm^2) is accounted for by the the PowerVR SGX543MP4 GPU cores, of which they are paired in groups of two and then symmetrically opposed to each other.
Chpwn (Grant Paul) and Phoenixdev (Paul Griffin) have posted photos of an iPad 3 that was jailbroken using a third method!

This has truly been an amazing day for jailbreaks. First iPhone Dev-Team posted photos of jailbroken iPad 3, later i0n1c posted a video using unique method. Now it seems that there is a third methid. Wow!!
