    New avatar for me!

    Marie thought that my avatar was getting a bit "stale" since I have used that same picture since I got here. I miss my dog, but I do think it is time for a fresh new look! Thank you for helping me stay focused!

    No more Atomic web browser?

    I know there are many people who favor the Atomic web browser over Safari mainly because it offers the ability to change the user agent. This means you can set the browser so that web sites think you are using non-mobile versions of Safari, various versions of InternetExplorer and Firefox. It...

    HD radio tagging - this will cost me money!

    I finally joined the 21st century and installed an HD radio in my Jeep. So I am reading the manual (which is something I very rarely do!) and I find out that I can hook up my iPad through the USB port (instead of using the AUX in port like I had to do on my "old" radio). Big deal, right...

    Mobile Terminal won't work

    As many (some?) of you may have already found out, MobileTerminal won't work. You tap it and it instantly goes away. I tried adding the xSellize repository where there is supposed to be a beta Terminal for iOS4, but that barfs all over itself when I try to add it to my list of sources. Anyone...

    Teaching iPad 101 class

    I spy with my little eye...

    No, I am not talking about the children's game or the 1960's TV series starring Bill Cosby and Robert Culp, but an iPhone/iPad app called iSpy. With this app, you can look at webcams from all over the world in real time! When the app opens, you see a screen with 36 thumbnails of webcams in...

    iBooks update!

    Maybe Apple does listen after all! The latest update now has a Collections options where you can separate your books however you want. The app keeps getting better, but unfortunately their offerings still leave a lot to be desired.

    Did you buy your iPad or was it a gift?

    I see so many posts, especially in the introductions, where people say that they received their iPad as a gift from a "significant other". Me? Mine was a birthday present from my wife. I have been a long time iPod user and had two iPod Touches. So you see, the fact that I eventually became a...

    PG17 - I thought the iPad was supposed to be "family friendly"

    A month or two ago, Apple removed the "adult" titles from their top sellers list in the iBook store. They still sell the books, but they were simply removed from the list. Well someone at the App Store didn't get the memo! Here is today's (9/16/2010) 76th top free app --

    Why do they call it the Sleep/Wake button?

    You know, that button on the top right edge of your iPad. Apple calls it the Sleep/Wake button. So given this name, one would assume that pressing it would put the iPad to sleep and pressing it again would wake it up. BUT NO!!! According to Apple, pressing this button does not put...

    Will this work?

    Without a doubt, the battery life on the iPad is terrific! There have been a few posts from people who claim to have been able to watch things like streaming video for much longer than the 10 hour "average" use time. But I want to take the opposite approach.
