In this show we…


reduce our del Carbon footprint,

posit a camera connector kit dongle,

discuss the many moods of Google voice,

lower the price of an iPad,




wonder who wins when Apple takes on China.

Blogging From the iPad

Trying out a first post from the iPad, using the BlogPress app. I got a little confused and lost my first draft, which was a sharp, witty bit of prose; now I’m stuck with this second hand leftover. Well, anyway, I am still amazed at how fast I can type on this thing, especially if i just go for it and don’t try to think too much. Getting as fast or faster than my laptop keyboard, which i never cared for much, anyway. The InCase leather case really helps, gives a great angle for typing on a table.

Looking back now, the iPad seems not to auto-correct “I”. Hmm, seems like an issue.

Here is another example of some iPad photo editing, which I am also doing a lot of.

I like this picture, thinking of signing all this work, “From the lunch room”.

More to come later.
