How to Repurpose Your Old iPad

Apple has taken the wraps off a couple of new iPads in October.

If you’re planning to buy one of them, you may find yourself pondering what to do with your current iPad. Sure, you can make back a few bucks by selling it on Craigslist or eBay, but maybe it would make more sense to hang onto it. After all, an iPad can do some pretty cool stuff when you dedicate it to a specific task or set of tasks.

Rick Broida at C|Net, shares his picks for how to extend the life of your old iPad.

Christopher Baily is Burberry’s New CEO

Burberry chief creative officer Christopher Bailey will now be pulling double duty as CEO, as Angela Ahrendts announces her move to Apple.

Ahrendts is joining the tech mamoth as their senior vice-president of retail and online stores, a position that will make her responsible for rejuvenating the “retail experience.” Since taking the job of CEO of Burberry in 2006, Ahrendts is credited with helping the house transition from a stuffy raincoat proprietor to a sexy brand with wider appeal. Both Ahrendts and Bailey will officially assume their new roles in 2014. 

This is Apple’s second big-name hire from the fashion world (and their first woman in a senior vice-president role). In July, Apple hired former YSL CEO Paul Deneve to oversee “product development.” The battle between tech companies and fashion houses for design and management talent forecasts an exciting future for the direction of the tech industry.
