This is a touching video about a 99-year-old woman who recently bought her first computer — an iPad.



Ping

I’ve been using Ping for the iPhone since its initial release date, and I’ve been extremely happy with it.  

Ping is a text-messaging app. There is no monthly charges and no roaming charges to Ping someone, but they must also have a Ping account. This is great for your family and friends and saves a bundle.



Love the OSU Colors!

I received the iLUV fabric case last week and have been using it all week. The iLUV is a slipcase made of sturdy fabric in which you can store and carry your iPad while not in use.

The case is very sturdy, and I feel confident that my iPad is protected. The band clip is a nice touch, especially since it comes in three colors – one of which is the same colors as Oklahoma State University – Go Cowboys!



How To Be a Cool Grandparent

How To Be a Cool Grandparent

Step 1: Purchase an iPad

Step 2: Install all your “bragging” photos on the device

Step 3: Install the Jack and the Beanstalk app

By taking these three steps, your friends will be seriously envious of your “Bragging Album;” your kids will be overjoyed at how well you “babysit;” and your grandchildren will think you’re the coolest Granny or Grandpa on earth. Jack and the Beanstalk almost makes me ready for Granny-hood!



Speaking of Flash on Apple Devices, Hulu May Be Coming to the iPad (w00t!!!)

I was over on Wired's Gadget Lab blog when I noticed this little gem of information which they got from the LA Times

The rumors have been flying about a Hulu app on the iPad. Hulu is the number one reason that geeks complain about the lack of Flash support on Apple’s mobile devices, so if Hulu were to bring a native application to the TV-friendly iPad, it would be huge. And it might be happening soon.

The ManHandle: A He-Man's alternative to the Man Purse, for your iPad!

image

I am always on the lookout for the perfect case, and the iPad presents a particular challenge.  I want something that can protect the iPad, while it is in use, so a slipcase doesn't cut it for me.  I also want to be able to grip my iPad with a handle.  And I would prefer to not carry a "Man Purse".  Yes, I'm superficial.

With that in mind, and nothing on the market that seemed to meet my needs, I went ahead and created just such a tool.  I call it the "ManHandle".  It is created completely with parts you could get at a hardware store.  It looks tough, because it is.  And it only cost me around $20.

 Booq names its bags after snakes, and the Taipan Shadow XS ($79.95) is a killer.



Review: ThinkFlood RedEye

image

I recently received the opportunity to review the RedEye remote control system. I want to say Thank You to ThinkFlood for sending me a review unit to borrow for this review. Many of you may be wondering what exactly is a RedEye? The RedEye is a system where you can turn your iPod Touch or iPhone into an infrared remote control. You can use this for media or other devices that use infrared signals. Please note for the interest of the review, I am conducting this test drive based on an average consumer.
