First thoughts on the iPad

I didn’t watch Steve Job’s keynote address yesterday, but like everyone else in the universe, I did catch some news of Apple’s new iPad. Despite being a big fan of Apple products, I wasn’t overly impressed. Here are some of my thoughts: Useful for note-taking, so I imagine it will be useful in classrooms (including […]

eReader, take 2

I checked out Journey to the Center of the Earth from the library and haven’t gotten around to it yet. The other day, I renewed it. ┬áThis morning, after talking to John, it occurred to me that maybe this is anopportunity for me to give eReader on my iPhone another shot. ┬áTurns out the book […]

Short break (4 hours into my day)

I took at short break at 11 am after wrapping up the Day 2 slide deck (209 slides!) finally!  I headed over to the Apple store because after nearly 2 years, I’ve been having some problems with my iPhone (which I never bought Apple Care for).  Turns out the problems were caused by a small crack in glass […]

Consolidating my online presence

I’ve mentioned over the last few days that I am in the process of consolidating my on-line presence. Let me describe the why and how of this for folks who might be interested.

Consolidation

I am in the process of consolidating my online presence.  I’ll have more to say about what this entails once it’s all finished.  The key thing for now is that my main email address is going to change.  I’ll be notifying folks of the change over the next few days.  If you haven’t heard from […]

Warm Sunday

It was near 70 degrees here in the Metro DC area today–unusual for late December, to say the least.  It was almost like we were back in Florida.  I slept in until about 8:30 or so.  But we still managed to get an early start on our day.  First, we headed over to the Apple […]

Domain renewal

When I woke up this morning, I had an email telling me that my domain (jamierubin.net) was set to expire in 90 days.  Many, three years goes by fast!  I went ahead and renewed the domain name for 4 more years.  The expiration date is now March of 2013, which seems very far off.  I wonder how fast it […]

Thursday

Still no NEW SCIENTIST. Rainy day today.  As planned, Karl, Todd and I headed to the house during lunch.  They helped me bring the grill up from the landing and into the living room (where I can more easily maneuver it toward the kitchen) and then we spent an hour or so playing Wii.  It was a lot […]

Fouled up my data on GoodReads

I was trying to be clever and managed to delete most of my data on Good Reads. It’ll be sometime this weekend before I get it all re-imported.

Twitter!

I’ve now got a twitter account. All you Digital Natives out there know what I’m talking about. For everyone else, I wouldn’t worry too much about it.

eReader for the iPhone

Since I mentioned upgrading my iPhone to the 2.0 software today, I should also mention that I downloaded the eReader application for the phone. I have always been on the fence about eBooks, not for any particular reason other than I like turning pages and having the book in my hand. But even with all […]

Now you see it, and now you don’t

We were up pretty early this morning. Kelly had to go into work, but I stayed home because I needed to be here for the cable guy. I made good use of the time. I got my books unpacked. There are 36 boxes of books and I managed to get most of them unpacked and […]
