iPad Education? How will the iPad be used in education?

 Here's are some interesting blog postings about the iPad and education:



Apple Ebook Pricing

Although Apple has stated that its ebooks will sell for $14.99, there is rumor that bestsellers will sell at $9.99. At what price are you willing to purchase an eBook? Does it matter whether it is fiction or nonfiction? Best seller? 



Two weeks and counting to my new iPad!

image

Only two more weeks til I get my iPad!

I'm so looking forward to trying this out.

Will it meet my expectations?

Will there be plenty of apps available for the iPad? Will the ones I own on my iPhone work on my iPad? If so, how will they work? 

What kind of cover will I need? Can I carry it in my purse? What about a stylus? Will my Pogo Stylus work?

Will I be able to endure without 3G? 

I'll let you know the answers to these questions and more - soon!



Need I say more.

 Though I really don't need to say much, like the estimated 20,000/hour iPads being presold, I couldn't resist the option of going to the Apple store in person to gauge the interest here in Maine.   Stay tuned.



123 Color makes learning fun and convenient!

Here’s another iPhone app that makes learning fun! 123 Color teaches number recognition, upper and lower case letters, shapes and creative expression. Included in the app are 60 drawings to color – drawings that represent holidays, butterflies, flowers, household items, fruit, planets, birds, shapes, animals, people, transportation, tools, leaves, and sports.



Best way to buy an iPad?

I am on record as having a few reservations about the iPad, but I still firmly plan to pick one up on Day 1. So the questionI ask is similar to one I posed re the iPhone.  Where is the best place to buy an iPad?

Effective March 12, prospective customers will be able to pre-order one from Apple.  I will probably go this route, to ensure I can get one soon.  There are rumors of delays due to software and/or hardware, so if supplies are constrained, I want to make sure I'm one of the lucky ones.



Spirit for iPhone and touch

image

 Spirit, designed by programmer Marco Mazolli, is the kind of retro-looking game that I gravitate towards, pun intended. The crisp vector-like graphics, airy music, and retro game grid is like playing a trippy version of Tempest, Star Castle, and Tron all rolled together (some of my favs from the 80s). The only problem is that Spirit becomes too dificult in the early levels, and there is a definite lack of power-ups or extra lives to sustain you into the higher levels.

App Store gets Adult Supervision... too heavy handed?

"Apple has reversed their policy".  If I've heard it once, I've heard it a million times.  Actually, I google'd those words and found 994,000 results, so that's not an exaggeration!  Apple has had enough of the 'bikini' apps and has begun removing such apps from the App Store.

 

I must admit, I am a bit conflicted here.  As a father, it can be frustrating seeing 17+ apps when doing searches or browsing the App Store.  Those apps obviously sell, but that pushes other apps down in the rankings, making it harder to sell.  As a developer of family-friendly apps, this is also frustrating because it means less "exposure" (pun intended) for my apps!
