From the waag days, look at that sweet setup!


Got my DODO Case

I ordered my DODO Case for my iPad the second I was getting the 3g 64gig version. It took over two months for it to arrive but I am happy to say that it exceeds my expectation of it.

Right when it comes out of the box.

Fits the iPad 3g perfectly.

I was afraid I would have to shave it down so the power cord would fit. But apparently this is version two of the DODO case.

Looks like a book, no idea that it is an iPad. Awesome, and it does a better job of protecting the iPad than the Apple iPad holder. This feels much more sturdier.


I want a Clear iPhone

I was just reading about how apple are having problems with the white paint for the new Apple iPhone 4th generation phones. How hard would it be to make it clear? I mean they already know how to make some sort of clear plastic for the first iMac. Why can’t they make the iphone clear. It would be dope. I guess it wouldn’t be that interesting, they would have to move the battery around so you could see the circuit board or something.


How I will use my iPad (and why I might need to buy a second one)

I woke up this morning thinking about how I wish I had my iPad already. Actually, I went to sleep last night thinking about the same thing. I had just finished my book and wasn’t really sleepy yet and wanted to read something else. I didn’t have another book to read on my bedside table. And I wasn’t going to get up and find an old book to read again. That would have awaken me for sure. So I decided to just read all the extra’s that are in a book, when it was printed, who printed it, the god awe full reviews (Who reads those anyways?) Thats when I had the thought, I wish I had my iPad right now. I could either find another book to buy in the online bookstore, Or I could read how the Lakeshow did last night. And went to sleep.

As I awoke I thought about how I didn’t want to wake up Erin and let her sleep a little bit. I thought about the ways that we could use an iPad in the house. I thought about how when it wasn’t in use it could be showing the latest pictures I had taken. Or just even a slideshow of pictures from flickr or facebook. I would love it if would just go through all the pictures that I have Favorited in flickr. I would build a frame for it, so it slides in and out easily and charges while in there.  It would have a fancy frame.

Or I was thinking that I would mount it into the kitchen, and use it as our primary to do list and Calendar. I asked Erin about this when she woke up and said, that would be great, I would look at the Calendar and see who’s birthday it was this week. And I responded, and yes you could add events to it from your NON iPhone, or while you are at work. And I could add events from my iPhone or while I am at work. You could even add events while looking at it. We could even have a dynamic to do list, or groceries list. Where we are out of something, you add it on the iPad and when we go grocery shopping, I could look up what we are missing on my iPhone.

Then I thought about how I always had my iPad at the bedside table and didn’t have to worry about getting up and grabbing it from the kitchen or in the front room. I know that there are probably cheaper solutions for this, but for this I know that I could write my own application or website to do the things that I want to do specifically. And that is what makes it more intriguing to me as a whole. For the price point to do what I want to, Know how to do, It is justified.

I already ordered my iPad 32gb 3g last week. I will wait to see how I use it in my life to make any more decisions.


iTunes Date Added

I want to start adding these little mp3 iTunes facts in the future. I guess i want to make this more personal somehow. I wanted to see how much music I add to my collection every year. Especially since I just purchased a new iPod to fit my collection. I had to get the 160 gig ipod classic since my colection is now 128.62 GB.

So I had to make a new smart playlist for 2006 till 2010.  I did Date added is in the range 1/1/2006 to 12/31/2006 (since the first recorded song added was in November of 2006).
