iPad w/o PC

Evernote on the iPad and N8 - Is Local Storage NeededWhen you go into the Apple Store and tell them you have an iPad and no normal PC, the expressions are funny. For as much as we’ve gotten to the point where devices like mobiles and tablets can live without the “host”-PC, people still expect you to have one.

My Velo in Several Zip Codes

Valencia in Shed - Share on OviBy no means would I ever consider myself or my opinions about biking as authoritative as many of the biking websites that I follow (Let’s Go Ride a BikeLoving the Bike, and EcoVelo).
