Lately, I have been creating videos for instruction using my iPad. The two apps that I’ve been using are Educreations and ShowMe. I would love to use the Smart Notebook app, unfortunately it does not have recording functionality. I really loved using Educreation app, until I posted a few videos on my website for my students to access. Apparently you cannot view the videos on the iPad/iPod devices because Flash is required. So, now I am forced to use the ShowMe app. Anyway, I will be patient until Notability have a video recording feature. I guess I I shouldn’t hold my breath…

For the past few months as I have been enjoying my iPad, I have been growing more acclimated in using the Apple’s premier browser, Safari. I liked it so much, I had the audacity to install it on my Windows 7 laptizzle. I really thought that I could synch my Reading List items on all of my devices, but this was only a dream, until now…. with Chrome, gets the job done.
Unfortunately, I have not been able to verify to see if I can see my favorites from my iPad on my PC. It’s terrible times with my PC. It is suffering from a severe case of the BSOD (blue screen of death). I tried all measures to restore it, and even tried to upgrade it to the preview version of Windows 8, but still arrived to no solution.
Anyway, I’m going to keep rocking and rolling with Chrome on my iPad and you all keep my PC in your prayers…

May we have a moment of silence for paper publishing (books & magazines), photo processing, DVDs, CD, flea markets, pawn shops, bootleggers and other pre-millennium stuff.
Digital downloads is replacing what my generation has acquired and traded for years. Sometimes I feel like I am the only person that actually rents CDs from Netflix? Will Red Box be around in 2017? Will bootleggers upgrade to blu-ray by then? Will my iPad 3, iPhone, and laptizzle be obsolete in less than five years? Who knows. As things evolve, so shall we.

Hmmm…. Front facing camera could definately be useful. Wonder if education will ever allow or even REQUIRE such a device for academic use.

Okay… iPhone you win… My BB is certified to be no fun compared to the feature of this autotune app. I am not hating, but…
This app is a great novelty at first, but we don’t need a plethora of T-pain wannabes out here! Hey Jay-Z, I think that this app definetly twists the knife in the death of autotune. (BTW, I meant to replace the the ‘T’ with an ‘A’ in T-Pain of the title of this post.)

Here is my last blog post dedicated to the good people of Apple Computers, Inc.
ATTENTION – Brother Jobs and the others engineers at Apple: We DO NOT NEED a music player that takes pictures or videos. We NEED a music player that has a radio FM tuner, or even a HD receiver.
You were supposed to dominate the mp3/music industry and crush the competition. Please prepare to get your jaw rocked by Micro$oft who is about to launch a much better product the which seems better by comparison. Also, since I kinda mentioned the iPhone, again… please take notes from the Palm Pre architecture and do a “Apple-spin’ to it. In other words, we need a REAL qwerty-key pad on a REAL touch screen phone. We all know that you are capable in designing such a product.
So, please look at the numbers after a few quarters and go back to the drawing board or just go back to the basics. Be the true juggernaut you were supposed to be.

To upgrade or not, that is the question…
I am currently a Blackberry Curve user. I can do a lot on my smart phone already, so… do I really need to hand over my hard earned scrilla to Mr. Jobs? There’s a recession going on, son!
I am quite hesistant to go sans qwerty keypad. Since the 25th officially marks the end of my AT&T year (of 15 months), what will I really gain besides crossing over to the National iPhone Geek Society.

Yesterday, believe it or not, I went the whole day with sans Blackberry. This circumstance was due to an issue with my battery (well I thought it was my battery anyway). Every time I attempted to charge it up, it would not recognize that it was plugged up. Hmmmmm… went in to the AT&T store and spoke to a kind gentleman who assisted me in trying to solve my BB Curve issue. Looked like one of the phone’s female micro usb receptical pins were damaged. Warranty was out, and no insurance. Broham is out of luck especially when contract is up on JUNE 25. So until then, I will have to downgrade to my old Motoral Rokr phone. Well, I guess I can work on my iTunes playlists back again.
Anyway… now it is really funny how it so happens that yesterday, Apple announces their new OS version 3 for the iPhone. From the above pic, Apple may have just won me over to the dark side. Great preview found on youtube… Sorry RIM, gotta kick ya to the curve, oops curb…
