Fight as boxing legends past and present in the newest Fight Night installation from EA, which has truly impressive graphics and squeezes an incredible amount of gesture control onto a 3.5" interface (swipe this way to throw an uppercut; swipe this way to throw a haymaker, etc.). I'm not a violent guy by nature, but even I can appreciate the multiplayer mode, which lets you womp on your friends via Bluetooth or local Wi-Fi. $5. [iTunes] via Gizmodo
Accented with a brilliant white face, Marc by Marc Jacobs'gold-plated stainless steel watch will pop against this season's color-bright trend. Wear it with a printed dress and a deluxe leather bag for a flattering finish.
Apple has just made its second-generation iPad official! It features a dual-core A5 chip and, finally, cameras, both front and rear! The new CPU is said to be up to twice as fast, with graphics performance up to nine times better than on the original iPad, while power requirements have been kept the same. Battery life is, consequently, unaltered, with Apple promising 10 hours. Pricing, too, has been left unchanged, starting at $499. The new tablet will come with an HDMI output, which will set you back $39 for the requisite dongle, but we've yet to hear any rumblings of Thunderbolt connectivity.
There is a new cover for the device, which is best defined by Steve Jobs himself: "We designed the case right along side the product. It's not a case -- it's a cover." Basically, it's a magnetic flap that protects the front and automatically wakes and puts the device to sleep according to whether it's open or closed. Guess we know what that proximity sensor was about now. These Smart Covers will cost $39 in plastic or $69 if you opt for leather.
The iPad 2 is 33 percent thinner than its predecessor, at a mind-melting 8.8mm, and will ship in two hues: white and black. It'll be available on both AT&T and Verizon, and all variants start shipping on March 11th.
In terms of new software, Apple's launching iOS 4.3 alongside the new iPad and bringing with it much improved Safari performance as well as FaceTime and Photo Booth apps specifically for the newly camera-enriched iPad. Personal Hotspot capabilities are also arriving in the latest version of the OS, but they'll be exclusive to the iPhone 4, so you won't be able to share your 3G iPad's connection.
