I am not narcissistic. I do not enjoy seeing my face (especially in the morning) every time I grab my iPad. The glare is beyond ridiculous. The smudges are unbearable. I'm getting an anti-glare guard, asap.
Why doesn't the Apple Store carry the anti-glare screens? Me doth think Sir Jobs might be a touch narcissistic.
If you get an iPad 3G and are faced with the choice of buying a 250MB or unlimited data plan, my advice is to go for the cheaper 250MB at $14.95 per month. If you find that you use up the 250MB in less than two weeks, and it seems like your usage will continue at about the same level, then when your 250MB runs out, go for the $29.95 unlimited.
But in every case if your 250MB lasts longer than two weeks, you're going to be better off buying 250MB at a time.
Getting photos from my iPhone used to be a hassle -- email it to myself, download the generically-named Photo.jpg, save it as something else, then finally edit it and use it. Now, with Air Sharing Pro, transferring photos via Wi-Fi is a drag-and-drop pleasure.
There's an app called Mirror that is actually #1 in Lifestyle. It does nothing, essentially, except display a black screen (with fake lightbulbs around it), and users are expected to use it as a mirror. Now, the developer might be in the right, as Apple approved it (while lambasting Adobe Flash for the lack of quality apps it produces).
Since Apple doesn't display the full description, in iTunes, unless you click "More", they say, below the 'fold' that "You will get the same effect you have when the device is off, with a nice frame." But I've noticed that they keep changing the screenshots to somewhat overstate what it can do, and then change them back when the heat is on.
All you need to do is match the colors on the rotating tube. That’s it, just spin the rings on the cylinder, like a codex, in order to match the colors and remove them. Sounds pretty cool, and a bit on the unique side to me, so I was happy to take a look when the developers offered to send over a copy for review.
My friend, Patrick, tweeted this: AT&T's $325 termination fee hike proves they know they can't compete when their iPhone exclusivity ends. Verizon should match it as a rebate.

So you are looking for an easy way to convert all those home movies you have on VCR tape or camcorder? Want to carry those keepsakes around with you on your iPad? I’ve got just the accessory for you, then. The Elgato Video Capture device. It connects to a Mac (or PC*), and allows you to record from your analog sources quickly and easily. I had a chance to try out the device, but my son actually did this review on his Mac… As I’m still a “PC” I tried it out on my home computer as well.
I'm not sure why a game would be an essential app — maybe if you're bored. But this list of 10 top iPad games from Macworld is definitely worth checking out. I couldn't resist buying Pinball HD. I'm not really into gaming, but i spend so much time having to show my iPad off to interested people that I thought this would be a good one to let them see the sort of cool things it can do.
Some time ago I posted about an iPhone app that can actually blow out a candle. And now the same developer has come out with Magic Mover ($0.99), which pushes things.
I expect innovation, not regurgitation from Google. While enthusiastic about Google's deal with AdMob finally going through, I'm less than impressed with their new proclamation of partnering with Sony for a Google web TV. Don't get me wrong, I love Google and Sony, but talk about being late to the party.
Why am I annoyed? Aside from Google wanting to do things other than what they're really, really good at?
