ZAGGfolio iPad keyboard case review

I believe that Apple created the iPad, at least initially, to be a content consumption device. It’s fabulous for reading magazines, watching video and playing games. However, when it comes to actually being productive, I found the onscreen keyboard practical only for short-form content like tweeting to friends, updating my Facebook status and short replies to emails.

Enter the ZAGGfolio Keyboard Case, a device that tackles these issues with ease.

Facebook for iPad is Finally Here

Hats off to my friend Jimmy [Twitter | Tumblr] for catching the article from the New York Times, At Long Last, Facebook Releases an iPad App, announcing the release of Facebook’s native application for the iPad.

Why it took so long to get Facebook to release an iPad app is up for debate. Some say it was Apple wanting content agreements with Facebook (remember iTunes Ping?), some say it was Zuckerberg contending that the Facebook website was already iPad friendly and then there was the leak that turned your regular iPhone Facebook app into the iPad app, which Facebook patched up lickidy split.

There was even a Facebook programmer, Jeff Verkoeyen, the lead developer for the Facebook iPad app, that ended up quitting the company due to frustration over the delays. He is now at Google. Their first iPhone developer went through the same thing a few years ago and quit. Continue reading

This is the New Facebook

Facebook is doing its best to blow the minds of developers and users today at their F8 conference. Of course, over the last few days, all they have really accomplished was upsetting their user base with dramatic and seemingly unnecessary changes to the Facebook user experience.

Today they unleashed the future of a Facebook profile. It looks slick, fun, interesting and very narcissistic. The new Facebook is the old Myspace.

Next is a screen capture of what an entire profile will look like. Continue reading

Hitler Covers the Jeffersons

This is absolutely, totally inappropriate. It’s wrong, I shouldn’t be posting it, it will offend people on all sides of the issues it brings up. However, I cannot help myself and I will defer all complaints to Ryan who first posted this hilarious video to his Facebook last night.

I was sitting upstairs when I heard the music playing from our bedroom downstairs. At first I thought Ryan was watching an old episode of The Jeffersons, which would have been weird enough on its own. It wasn’t until this afternoon that I visited his Facebook wall and saw what was really going on.

Happy I shared this? Wonder what Mr. Evil would think of this video were he alive today.

The Other Justin and Pine 22

I am always excited when the opportunity to meet a Twitter friend during one of my trips comes up. On my trip to Orlando I got to meet two of my Twitter friends in real life (IRL) for the first time. The first was a Twitter friend of my namesake, Justin, followed by Skylor at another downtown Orlando restaurant.

Corey and I met Justin aka @TheJustins86 at a gourmet burger restaurant called Pine Twenty 2 in downtown Orlando. Pine Twenty2 was the recommendation of Justin and what a great one it was.

Pine 22

How we actually came about Pine Twenty2 is even more interesting. Corey was showing to me the menu of a restaurant downtown. I kept saying “wow that sounds awesome” and thinking, “I want to go there!” Then I say to Corey, “The other Justin wants to go to some place called ‘Pine Twenty2’…”

Meanwhile, Corey was showing me the menu to Pine Twenty2 the entire time. If that isn’t a sign, I don’t know what is. Continue reading

Monkey Steals Camera, Doesn’t use Instagram

A black macaque in Indonesia stole award-winning photographer David Slater‘s camera and began taking photos of himself and his surroundings.

  1. This is awesome
  2. He is adorable
  3. This is how Planet of the Apes begins?
  4. These photos are better than most profile photos I see on Facebook

I walked with them for about three days in a row. They befriended us and showed absolutely no aggression – they were just interested in the things I was carrying.
