Okay. Now officially typing into — onto? — an iPad. It is, for the most part, a great deal more comfortable than I thought it would be, especially considering I do not have an external keyboard or a stand of any sort. The shift/caps key is goofy though; it does not “depress” on the first touch like I’m used to? Will take some getting used to, I suspect. Otherwise, hey, cool.

Nobody wants that. I just want you shhh. I just want you easy like Sunday morning. Yes, they announced the new Apple Tablet. Yes, it’s called the iPad. No, it... Read The Rest →
No, seriously. We may have skipped the Second Coming. It didn’t happen fast enough. It didn’t happen awesome enough. The Second Coming wasn’t portable — you couldn’t take it into the shitter with you — and so Steve Jobs punts us right into the Third Coming. He’s good like that.
