Well, I am one of those that is taking on their exercise and diet regimen in the new year. It's almost a cliche, I know. Probably the most popular of New Year's resolutions. That said, I am still taking it on. Knowing I need help, I have enlisted friends to hold me accountable, gone public with a blog and I bought Fitness HD for my iPad ($3.99).
I recently wrote a post about PhatPad and how it left me starry eyed for my Newton and it's handwriting recognition. Well I see now that they have cut their price in half for this weekend. So if you are quick on your feet, you can download it for $2.99 instead of $4.99. Hurry, bargains aren't forever.
Verizon...iPhone....iPhone....Verizon. It's what we have been hearing since the iPhone was released on AT&T.
....only thing is, it really does look like it's going to happen sometime soon.
The wifi only iPad has recently started selling in Verizon stores which seems odd because it's not a phone and Verizon only sells phones, then AT&T was voted the worst carrier by Consumer Reports.
I have been hearing rumors from people who seem to have direct lines to the Cupertino well, that point to a press release early January finally saying it's so.
My heart went a'racing when I saw PhatWare release PhatPad ($4.99) for the iPad. The video shows how you can write on your iPad and have it recognize and transpose it into typed text.....just like my beloved Newton did.
i have been accused of being easily impressed when it comes to apps on my iPad. Well today Quest Visual released a translation app for the iPhone that caused my jaw to drop. It is called Word Lens and it's free with demos included. Each language is $10, on sale for $5 until Dec. 31 by in app purchase.
If you can watch this video and not be totally and completely blown away, then I'll shut up. But don't plan on that happening.
With Christmas right around the corner, you may still be looking for that perfect gift for that someone who has all the gadgets, including an iPad. It may be cliche to say that what they need is something to carry them in, but here is something I bet yoiu never thought of......clothing that will carry all your gadgets at once....including an iPad. Yea, I know!
Well ScotteVest sells clothing for the gadget geek in your life. Even the Woz wears one.
TV news has changed quite a bit in the last number of years. When a comedian takes over Walter Cronkite's "Most Trusted Name In News" title, I can only shake my head and wonder. That being said, I love the Daily Show. So much so, I download it from iTunes to watch it on my iPad, since I don't have cable. I think it is a bargain at $10 for 16 episodes.
I am always scouring the web for iPad and iPhone news, tips and apps. My first stop has always been iPhoneLife.com, even before I started writing on this blog. But then my second stop has been iPad.net. They are dedicated to iPad and always have stories and information that I don't see anywhere else. They have tips, news and some of the best wallpaper images I have ever seen. If you have an iPad, you have to stop by iPad.net and see what they do. I am certain they will make it into your bookmark tab.
When Apple developed iBooks, the first thing that I thought of was how one app could revolutionize the education market. I imagined all the times I walked a mile across campus carrying 20 lbs. of books and thought what a miracle it could be to students around the world to be able to carry only an iPad.
