First post from iPad

Is the iPad “magical”?  No.  Is it pretty darn impressive?  Absolutely. After picking my iPad up this morning at the Portland Mall in Maine, I got right down to business seeing just how well this thing can blog, and in so doing, put it through the paces that everyone wants to know. I’ll let you be the judge based not just on these words but by the recognition I’m doing it all on the iPad. So where to start?  Setting up MobileMe is just like the iPhone, Settings > Mail > Add Account > then enter your MobileMe account info and you’re in. You set it up to connect to the internet just like your iPhone or iPod Touch.  And if you’re a brand new convert to the iPhone OS, it’s about as intuitive as you can get.



Syncing my iPad!

 I'm waiting for my iPad to sync here at the Apple Store.

I think it's syncing every app I own. I forgot to set the preferences.

 

 

 

 

 

 



A must-have for nature lovers!

Have you ever heard a mink talk? Do you know what kind of gait a Blue Heron has? Can you identify Grizzly Bear tracks?



Apple creates first iPad timewarp

image

 This evening I contacted my local Apple store, to ask whether the press was allowed to bring video cameras into the store, the predictable response was no.  Which is fine, however I also wanted to find out why Apple has the store hours incorrectly posted, as not open on 4/3.  The response, no that's wrong.  What do you think?  Hype?  Oversight from Cupertino? Has the iPad created a time warp?



Give your kids a Witty Bit of music and alphabet learning

When I first started the Witty Bit app, the song went on and on and on. I couldn’t figure out how to get pass the first screen. Finally, I discovered you merely have to swipe to the next screen to get it to stop. Whew! 



The iClooly has been updated!

The iClooly Multi-Touch Pen (reviewed in an earlier blog) has been upgraded. The first version was not made very well and broke almost as soon as I took it out of the box. This one is much sturdier. I like it!
