When 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. Apple does – the iPad technically (marketing???) shouldn’t be able to live without it. And yet mine does. Am I wrong for pushing, or is the definition of what is a PC not yet adapted to personal computing?

Brighthand: Nokia N8 Review w/Additional Images
Was starting to get worried that this wasn’t going to press. Whew. Over at Brighthand is my review of the Nokia N8. Tons in there, and I should probably say that My opinion has changed slightly. Neveretheless, those were my thoughts as I wrote them then. Hope you enjoy it and the additional gallery images.
If I Could Enhance Evernote
I’m sitting here on my iPad really enjoying much of what Evernote offers. It isn’t so much that I’m able to do everything, but for the kind of device that the iPad is (as I use it), it actually is almost a perfect application. That said, if I could enhance it a bit, I think that not only would it be a better application/service, but it might just change a lot more than how we remember things.

Pushed a Bit Further
The past few days – more like since Friday – I’ve been dealing with intermittent Internet connectivity. I know, that’s not something this mobile evangelist should be admitting to, but there are these moments, and usually they endear me to pushing a bit further than I am comfortable, and finding out a few more things about my mobile tech choices.

Business Card 1.6
Thank goodness for Evernote; really can use that export from Evernote to WordPress feature now 😉
Sparked by an initiative and post from Ms. Jen, I went back to work on my landing page/digital business card and did some under-the-hood tweaks to it. Given the level of the work that went into it, this is essentially a new iteration – hence the version 1.6.

Considering How to Refresh My Phone Library
Some months ago, when I was actively switching between the N97 and X6, I wondered how long it would be before I’d needed to refresh my phone library. Then my X6 caught some salty water and that pretty much ended that thought for a time. As I prepare for a few outings and a literal change in my living spaces, I’m again looking at my phone library and what route to go about changing things up a bit.

The Internals of Racism
It has been a less than a decade since I was thrown into a conversation (and taunting) of overt racism. I remember how much I despised the hearts of those people. I wanted to badly to respect their character, but the taste of such hate incensed me.
To this day, its a topic that I tread around wherever possible.

Taking in A Humbling Cape Town 2010 Report
I wasn’t there, though I supported those who were there and in Charlotte doing group sessions, but this report on the 3rd Lausanne Evangelical Congress from Mike Milton had me floored after reading this:

Going Artsy with My iPad
Now here’s something that I’ve wanted to do for sometime, and right before catching some sleep, I remembered that Adobe Ideas for the iPad had an update that would export my photos to the device’s photo gallery. Side effect of this is that it meant also that I could upload them online to share with others.
Carnival of the Mobilists No. 243 at mobiThinking
The Carnival of the Mobilists continues this week over at the excellent site mobiThinking. Tons of content in this week’s edition so I will recommend not just the usual cup of coffee, but also a comfy chair and a bit longer time to enjoy this week’s contributions.
My Velo in Several Zip Codes
By 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 Bike, Loving the Bike, and EcoVelo). But, if you’ve been paying attention to this meme here, you’d see that I do have a affection towards riding that seems to be growing each ride. This past weekend, I got a chance to do something I’ve been meaning to do for a while, and added several layers to my understanding of life around these two wheels.
