Smaller iPad?

Apple has sent out invites to reporters for an event next Tuesday in San Jose, Calif. While the company will only say ``we’ve got a little more to
show you,'' analysts have said for months that Apple is developing a
smaller iPad. The tablet is thought to be about half the size of the
regular iPad and to start at $249 or $299. The regular iPad starts
at $499.

Microsoft Surface

Microsoft's first tablet computer, the Surface, will start at $499 when it goes on sale Oct. 26. The price matches that of Apple's iPad, the most popular tablet computer. But the base model of the Surface has twice as much storage memory: 32 gigabytes. The screen is also slightly larger. Microsoft says the signature hardware feature of the tablet, a cover that doubles as a
keyboard, will cost another $100.

Safety App for Halloween

There’s an app you can download to your iPhone or android phone if you're worried about your kids going trick-or-treating alone this Halloween .Securafone is a free app that will help you keep track of your little witches and warlocks as they roam the streets in search of candy. Not only will the app update your child's location every few minutes, but it allows children to send SOS text messages in case of emergencies.
