It's really too bad that all you promote is iPad, especially considering that Apple is rapidly losing market share to Android. Forget "the rest of us", how 'bout articles and apps for "the most of us"?

I too have used and would like to see more apps like iCircuit. I would also like to see a pSpice tie-in app as well as a component EDA Librarian for iCircuit, so we could expand the 30+ components and families to include other glue logic, FPGA DSP and - why not - even tubes!

It would go a long way towards removing the iPad from toy status and turning it into a real work platform.

Let's hope, short of jail-breaking your device and running Linux variants on it, you could actually turn the iPAD (and other tablets) into a valuable workhorse type of highly portable tool.

Thanks for citing iCircuit. Most of the posts had to do with Electro-Mechanical apps or add-ons and viewers.

Why not some really productive tools that allow creation at first hand in the iOS domain rather than doing all the work on big desktops and saving the tablets to passing the work around for comment? Not to belittle that aspect. It is invaluable, but must we always be tied to our big computers?

Apps appear to be great but i did not see or could you recommend Pure 3D Model viewing or editing apps?

Very interesting selection of apps.  I suspect that the number of engineering apps will grow exponentially in the next 1-2 years.

I saw some good apps there, but would be more interested in android apps personally...or what might be to come for the new windows tablets.

How about iCircuit?  Well worth the ten bucks for iPhone / iPad.  Has over 30 devices available as well as a meter and oscilloscope.  There are some screenshots on their website at icircuitapp.com

I agree - RY as an App would be very useful.  I have a web application that I use for simple stress-strain calculations but would love to expand it to include RY equations. 



Go to http://analysischamp.com/links.htm for access to some useful web applications.

A web application at http://AnalysisChamp.com is capable of performing expression evaluation with complex unit conversion.  It includes a list of searchable units that can be entered as expressions and returned in desired units.  The webpage is formatted for desktop or mobile device screens and is free.  



I entered your example (assuming that "m" = meters and "um" = micrometers) and it returned 9.09E6.  It also has magnetic, luminescence, electric, viscocity, energy, force, mass, pressure, temperature, time, velocity and other unit types.

Thanks much for the link, MikeVV. That fact that it's free and formatted for mobile use is great.

It's been two years since the Mac Mini's last appearance on iFixit's teardown table, but a newly revised version joins Apple's lineup this week.
More often than not, with the purchase of a sports car comes the sacrifice of any sort of utility. In other words, you can forget about a large trunk, extra seats for the kids, and more importantly driving in snowy (or inclement) weather. But what if there was a vehicle that offered the best of both worlds; great handling and practicality?
Kevin Gautier of Formlabs describes the making of a carbon fiber mold for an intake manifold, using a $3,300 3D printer, during Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest.
Science fiction author Isaac Asimov may have the best rules for effective brainstorming and creativity. His never-before-published essay, "On Creativity," recently made it to the Web pages of MIT Technology Review.
Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
