Clamcase for latest iPad minis turns tablet into faux-ultrabook

Accessory maker Clamcase has produced a new model in its lineup especially designed for the latest iPad mini. The lightweight aluminum case includes a custom QWERTY Bluetooth keyboard that automatically goes to sleep when put in "tablet mode" and wakes up when in "laptop mode." The hinge is offers 360 degree freedom, allowing the keyboard part of the case to act as a stand when not required. The combination of case and iPad mini offers much of the same core functionality as an ultrabook like the MacBook Air, but weighs more than a pound less than one. The case fully protects the iPad mini, and its rechargeable battery lasts for months. The case retails for $129 and is available now.

Apple updates WWDC 2013 app to fix video issues

At long last, Apple has updated its WWDC 2013 app to fix a problem with watching session videos. While the videos in question have been available on Apple's developer portal since the service returned last July, developers who were unable to attend the conference were unable to view the session videos on their iOS devices until today. Version 1.0.3 is now available from the App Store, but requires a registered developer account to view the WWDC videos.

Spotify removes time limits on ad-supported web listening

In a move sure to increase its popularity, Spotify announced on Wednesday that it would remove all limits on ad-supported web listening to its streaming music service in all countries, effective immediately. The previous policy limited new signups six months of unlimited web listening, but then began limiting it to as little as 2.5 hours per week. It recently also added ad-supported free listening for tablet devices and smartphones, matching moves by its nearest rival, Pandora. Spotify currently claims six million paying subscribers and 26 million listeners.
