The Story of the Scarecrow in iPlaid.

Have you heard the story of the Scarecrow in iPlaid? S. Crow was feeling sad. His tired outfit – old and drab 🙁 S.V. friends had the answer! They used their iPads. Now S. Crow is handsome in a shirt of iPlaid! This is one of the many scarecrows decorating Waconia, MN. It’s located at […]

Why is finding books so hard in iOS book apps?

I can’t quite figure out why the three leading eBook companies make it so hard to find books on the iPad. The other day my daughter wanted a princess book so I opened up iBooks on the iPad and searched. I could search for books in the store, but, much to my surprise, I could not […]

New iPad multitasking gestures are not so hot with a toddler.

When iOS 5.0.1 came out my original iPad got new multitasking gestures. I was excited because now I could use four or five-finger gestures to swipe up and reveal the multitasking bar, pinch to return to the Home screen, and swipe left or right to switch between apps. As I was testing them out I was finding it a […]

Turn your iPad or iPhone into a weather radio.

I’ve been looking to get a new weather radio and I found a really good, and cheap, one that happens to be an iOS app. NOAA Weather Radio is an iPhone and iPad app that lets you listen to over 160 weather radio stations from all around the country and even a few in Canada. […]

Life on just the iPad doesn’t work for me.

Well I made it though a week without my iMac. How did I do? Well…. not so good. I was doing fine for a few days. Granted it helped that Lily was sick and I had to sleep with her a few nights and that took away from my computer time. However I found it […]

Can I survive a week with only the iPad?

My iMac is currently in temporary storage. We were to get our carpets cleaned today, now it’s not until next Monday. So instead of moving everything back, it’s staying in storage. That means that my desk and iMac are not available to me. Ok, they could be if I really wanted. But I thought it […]

Saying Goodbye Remember The Milk Pro

A year ago I decided to try Remember the Milk Pro, however this year, I have decided that it’s not for me. I was trying to replace Toodledo with Remember The Milk. RTM has a nicer interface, seems simpler, a lot of people rave about it and it just felt like a good move. A […]

What are you asking Mac Santa for this year?

What kind of cool Mac gifts are on your Christmas wish list this year? I’m hoping to get iLife 11 as it’ll be a nice upgrade from my iLife 08. I’d like iWork 11 as well, but that’s not out just yet. I’m also hoping Santa brings me an Apple iPad case. I love my […]

Does The iPad Have To Worry About Screen Burn?

I hardly ever think about screen burn anymore. The idea of leaving one image on my computer screen for so long that it starts to burn the image into it forever doesn’t seem like it would happen. That’s what the screen saver or sleep mode is for anyway. But what about my iPad? Most of […]
