For the past month my iPhone 5 gets LTE on ATT's network in the middle of nowhere -- which is somewhere halfway between Moline and Peoria.
Count me in as one of the domestic types that bought a computer in April. I have a weakness for craving beautiful things and could not resist purchasing my first iMac in 10 years.  
Kay's analogy of a computer as being similar to a piano in a classroom has a ring of truth. I have been in many classrooms where typically there is a couple of computers sitting in the corner gathering dust and with little to none educational use and purpose.   However, the iPad has changed everything about computing in the classroom -- where each student has their own device and the teacher is trained in how to incorporate the technology into their lessons. In this...
I doubt plastic can have soul, but I know rubber soul is well known.
Unfortunately, I am beginning to believe this. Apple's commercials lately have been weak in message and frequency.   Even worse, Apple's PR has been abysmal. On the front page of today's Chicago Tribune Business section is a picture of an iPad with, "Apple's iPad is expected to be overtaken this year," and the headline, "Study: Android tablet to hit No. 1."

None of us was wearing a watch.   The last time I wore a watch was 17 years ago. I was working at my desk and had a meeting to attend later that morning away from the office. I was periodically checking the time on my watch, and I was extremely productive. I was getting things done in record time, until I...
Did trusted journalism die with the typewriter?
I wonder what a case would look like to protect the screen or, if it is dropped, will it bounce around?
When citing predictions made by market research companies, analysts, psychics, etc., it would be nice to know what the predictor's historic track record has been on similar predictions that are now verifiable.
I cannot comment on the Apple map app as I still use iOS 5 on my iPhone 4.  I have avoided using Google's map app after blindly trusting it to get me from Chicago to Florida last summer.  First, Google directed me to go through Louisville despite major road construction on I-65, where there was only one lane of traffic on the Ohio River bridge.  If I had only followed Mapquest's first and second recommendation of going through Cincinnati, I would have saved over 4 hours...
