Posting from the iPad

So I’m sitting here on the couch typing on the iPad. Erin and I got one for christmas this year and so far i think it’s a pretty cool thing. I’ve got most of my apps setup to run on here and I think for the most part I could move from using my iPhone all the time for things to just using this at the couch all the time. I’m actually typing this at my normal typing speed on the screen keyboard and honestly it’s not so bad, I could probably do a little better but to this point I’ve only had about five spelling issues.
I can handle it.
We’ve also got it set up to work with our xfinity stuff. That’s pretty cool when you have a 10-inch remote control for your TV and you can control both TVs from the same device. Of course we use it for our AppleTVs too. I’m just waiting on a new Words with Friends app so that I don’t have to do everything in 2X mode. It’s a little grainy.
Later tonight I plan to play with YouTube a bit and see how that goes.
The magazines are pretty cool on here, unfortunately I haven’t found anything in iBooks yet that I’m willing to pay for yet.
And basically the Twitter app rocks! I love the mult-pane layout.
The only thing that i haven’t tried yet is the native mail app, since we’re sharing this thing I guess I’m just going to do gmail on the web, and actually that’s not so bad either.
Better get back to something non-productive, it’s vacation week!

The oxen lived!

Things were a bit slow at work today. I played some Oregon Trail at Virtual Apple 2 and did pretty good if I do say so myself. I was a Carpenter, leaving in March. I did stick around MO for a bit until March 11 to leave on the trail and took my time, bought plenty of food but kept some cash for buying more food later and I hunted a lot. I’m proud to say I finally beat Oregon Trail from 1987!

Surely things around here are going to pick up soon. Honestly I’m bored on a daily basis here. I’m thinking about leaving right now cause I haven’t done much of anything this afternoon. I have like 3 things left on my punch list for the day, I can get them done in about 20 minutes if I go slow enough. Things are on the horizon but just not here yet.

I’ve gotten most of the John Adams mini-series on my AppleTV now, it’s about time to start watching it I think. Over 8 hours long, it’s going to take a bit of time. Praise Jebus for Netflix, you make it so easy to get tons of non-expiring movies on to my AppleTV without any effort what so ever.
