Whoopee, got my iPad 3G

image

Lots of happy people today, as the iPad 3G makes its way across the country to thousands of eager customers. And I was one of them. What a great gadget.  I immediately signed up for the At&T plan at $15 per month. Unfortunately, no 3G here in this corner of Iowa, but Edge seems to work okay. What I'm finding is that because the iPad's processor is so much faster, some of the apps that didn't work so well on my iPhone work better on the iPad. For example, it always took longer than I'd like to download the news using the USA Today app.

Panda Hero - A Positive Solution for Our Environment

image
I like positive solutions, and Barefoot Explorers has created a fun and entertaining game that provides a positive solution for our environment. For every Panda Hero game that is sold, they plant three live trees through a partnership with Trees for the Future
 
Your job in Panda Hero is to tilt, roll, swerve and jump through mazes, forests, rice fields and more in order to rescue the Panda that have been trapped by poachers. After rescuing the Pandas, you can feed, dress and play with them.


The Lorax - Entertainment or Propaganda? You decide.

image

The Lorax contains adorable Dr. Seuss graphics and fun sound effects; however, in my mind, its purpose appears to be more propaganda than entertainment. The message: Big Business will destroy our land and kill our creatures unless you do something about it.



Never too old to learn

image

Since getting my iPad I've been wanting to find out what my parents think about the device, so this past weekend I headed down to the coast with my son and iPad to relax and visit with my parents, and find out if they would like to try using an iPad.

Quick Look: White & Yellow Pages

image

There was a recent press release on an app called “White & Yellow Pages” by Avantar LLC. This app works on the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch (I installed it on my touch and iPad). The title is pretty self explanatory. I downloaded it today and I think this is going to come in handy. It has some great features which I will list below from the press release along with some links as well. I was impressed that when I located a business name, it pulled up the information and then proceeded to give me options for mapping, going to their web page, directions, and calling them.

Ping

image

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!

image

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!
