Today TechCrunch posted a really stupid article called Why Iím Craigslisting My iPads. It isn’t timely (we saw many similar articles in April) and the author clearly had no idea what an iPad was when he bought it. Basically he was looking for a laptop replacement, and the iPad isn’t […]

So I bought an iPad back in April. I believe tomorrow is my 2 month iPad anniversary. I love the thing. In principal I hate how closed iTunes is, but in practice I never find myself longing for something I can’t get. Basically I focus on what the iPad can […]

[At the time of this writing, GodFinger for iPhone/iPod Touch is available in some places but not others. You can find out if it’s available at your app store here.] GodFinger is an odd mash-up of casual game, Populous and a splash of social gaming. The idea here is that […]

First I have to say, most of this post (I assume) applies to the iPhone and iPod Touch as well as the iPad. So today I had my first lover’s spat with the iPad. It was my fault, really. I keep falling into the trap of thinking of it like […]

You can catch up on my iPad journey here. It takes me through Monday morning. By that time I’d ordered an iPad online and was prepared to wait for the April 12th ship date. Then I got to work and my co-worker had his and was showing it off. It […]
