In fact, more moms than ever are planning to do some holiday shopping on their mobile devices.

    According to a survey from our sister site, The Prowl, nearly half of all moms say they will be using their smartphone or tablet to shop for presents and other holiday goodies this year.

    The new iPads and iPad Minis are expected to be announced at an Apple press event later this month, but you know how technology works. We all have to predict what the improvements will be, and invariably, photos will be leaked onto the Internet.

    Known Apple leaker Sonny Dickson has a whole gallery of alleged photos of the new fifth-gen iPads, which supposedly will now come in space gray, which is apparently totally different than silver, people.

    Fox News host Shepard Smith was taking viewers on a tour of the brand new Fox News Deck, where employees appear to be working on ginormous iPads. That, or they’re tiny little workers. Hey, you never know -- Fox is an equal-opportunity employer, after all.

    Anyway, business reporter Seth Fiegerman caught the screen shot and tweeted it with the caption: “Either Fox News just bought a bunch of gigantic iPads or they employ very, very tiny people.”

The first-ever tablet specially designed for babies is out for the holidays, and it's selling for the low, low price of nearly 90 bucks. Glory, glory, hallelujah!

    Apple's newest additions, the iPad mini and the fourth-generation iPad, are selling like hotcakes. People bought more than 3 million iPads and minis in the first three days they were available. That's a lotta iPads.

    The new gadgets went on sale just last week, and so far only the Wi-Fi versions are available. The 3G and 4G ones will hit the streets soon. The iPad mini sports a 7.9-inch screen, smaller than the regular 9.7-inch iPad. It's thin as a pencil, 7.2mm wide, and weighs .68 lbs. Which is basically like weighing nothing at all.

    It's a great alternative to the bigger iPad for the mom-on-the-go who wants to pretend she's checking her email while really reading Fifty Shades of Grey when waiting to pick up the kids. I think I need one.

    Phil Schiller presents the iPad mini!The day has come! Rumors have been swirling for some time that Apple would soon be announcing a smaller, lighter, 7-something-inch iPad.

    Although we had assumed this mini tablet would be launched along with the new iPods and iPhone 5 last month, they decided instead to debut it closer to the holidays and alongside a 4th generation iPad, new 13" MacBook Pro with a sweet Retina display, Mac Mini, a suuuuuper-thin stunning iMac desktop computer, and the Apple Fusion Drive. Read on for details on the iPad Mini and the whole line-up ...

    As if your Christmas list weren't long enough, Apple is rumored to be about to announce a smaller, lighter iPad that may or may not be called the iPad Mini. It's expected to have a little 7-inch screen, making it a sort of entry-level mini tablet in the iPad family.

    According to the rumors - and there are plenty - the new gadget will launch this coming week on the 23rd. While we initially expected to see this unveiled alongside the new iPods and the iPhone 5 earlier this fall, it makes sense that Apple waited on this tablet as the company usually saves these sorts of products for the holidays.

    The question, then, is whether or not you're going to want to pick one of these things up.
