Thanks to the size and resolution of the iPad, graphic artists finally have a device that is both easy to use and extremely versatile when it comes to creative visual expression. Since the iPad's launch, several drawing applications have been released but few of them have the ease of use and intuitive, non-obtrusive user interface that Autodesk's Sketchbook Pro has to offer.
I’m not an artist (as you can see), but with Drawing Pad, I can have hours of fun pretending I am one.
JBL released their On Stage Micro II last week. This is one of their portable speaker docks, which works with the iPhone, iPods, as well as some other devices. They were kind enough to send me a loaner unit (Thank You), which I have been using for a few weeks.

I've just been watching the demo videos of the newly released version of HoloToy and I couldn't resist buying it. The 3-D effects look great on an iPad. The app is a work in progress but definitely has a wow factor. People are always wanting to see my iPad so it's fun having a few apps that show it off.

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?

I admit it, I am a self-confessed movie junkie. When watching animated movies, I love to identify the actors from their voices, and on the rare occasion when I can't place the name, I have the IMDb (Internet Movie Database) app and website close at hand. So I looked forward to playing with Ultimate Movie Buff, $0.99, from Super Monko Studio, especially since it is billed as "dedicated to cinemaholic people"!
