iPad screenshot crashes iPad 2 (iOS 5.1)

Somehow I managed to crash my iPad 2 by trying to edit an image in the Photos app. This is a repeatable problem and I’ve tried restarting, closing all apps and it still happens. Check out the video below to see the problem in action

The offending image is below: try saving it on your iPad and try editing it in the Photos app to see if this happens on your iPad.  In current testing, it doesn’t seem to affect the new iPad (3rd gen), iPhone 4 or iPod Touch (4th gen).  I can still edit other photos or screenshots so this totally puzzles me and is completely reproducible. It this another one of those special Apple bugs just for me?

iPad 2 launch in Brunei

After hearing word of the iPad 2 launch in Singapore on the 29th while doing Tech Talk Coffee Shop tonight, I was surprised to see that AV Electronics, the premium Apple reseller in Brunei is also having their launch on Friday 29th at 10am at both their Kiulap and Mall stores. Singapore prices are listed below and I would think Brunei prices will be slightly higher, perhaps B$50 to B$150 higher, but kudos to AV Electronics for getting it the same day as Singapore. From the Facebook page AVE mentioned that they have “around 100 different SKU of accessories” but the iPad 2 dock won’t make it in time for the launch.
