    A team at the University of Michigan has been developing a project, titled "HiJack" to help make basic data peripherals for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad without hefty fees. By using the audio jack on the device to both power the sensor and transmit data, smaller manufacturers, research teams, or even individuals are able to develop fairly creative add-ons for devices.

    Perhaps rivaled in grandeur only by the ball that drops in Times Square every New Year's Eve, the other famous countdown mechanism we all know and love (or simply tolerate) has returned. And all you have to do is check out the official Apple website to see where the numbers stand at this very moment.

At this point, it's difficult to keep count of how many delays this iPad exclusive digital publications has endured. What makes the latest delay so significant, however, is that it's starting ...
