Retaining your masculinity while carrying the iPad

by Michael Gray Dec 16th 2010 at 6:30PM

The New York Times had an odd post recently in which it responded to men who were having trouble carrying their iPad around town in a masculine fashion. According to the article in its Fashion & Style section, some men have even eschewed taking their iPad in public just because there’s a lack of suitably macho bags. Scott Stein at CNET even rated iPad bags in terms of their “humiliation index.”

I’ve used a laptop for many, many years and I’ll admit this isn’t a problem that’s ever occurred to me. Any doubts or questions about my bag are instantly dissipated when I bust out awesome technology like the iPad. I guess I could see a bit of embarrassment if you’re wearing a funky fanny pack or something, but there are tons of great looking bags for the iPad. Just check out the Booq Boa push bag, for example

If you really have trouble with establishing your masculinity via your gadget bag, let me suggest using a Sharpie to draw some skulls on it or maybe add some spikes

The benefits of IPAD

November 5, 2010

Nowadays more and more people are reading books on electronic devices. The number is growing every day with the introduction of cell phones offering ebook reading capabilities and of course with the introduction of Apple’s Ipad. The iPad is a recent device that has come into the ebook market. So if you love reading books should you get an Ipad?

Without a doubt the size and feel of the Ipad makes it perfect for reading ebooks. It’s definitely a perfect ebook reader because of its size and weight. The Ipad is a little heavier than a regular book, but the great thing is it can store thousands of books.

The screen is the big complaint about using an iPad as an ebook reader. The problem is that the screen reflects the lighting in the room. To read you will have to hold it in a way so that the light is not reflected directly to the screen.


Other devices with electronic ink like the Kindle doesn’t have this problem as these screens act like paper being seen even better in direct lighting.


The battery life is good enough for an ebook reader. You can read non stop for a whole day without the need of recharging the battery. You will just have to charge it each day making sure you have enough battery power for the next day.

So which formats can you read on an Ipad?

The iPad has the advantage of being able to use a multitude of formats. The first is iBooks which is built into the device. You can get iBooks at Apple’s own marketplace online.

Another option is using the Kindle application. You might consider Kindle, because it has a much bigger selection than Apple’s iBookstore. Due to the fact that Kindle is free, you can use it without further investment on your Ipad.

Another option is using a regular internet browser to read ebooks on Ipad.

Ipad’s inbuilt browser can read HTML without any problems. There are thousands of books online in this format.


Of course other ebook readers are interested in getting more users. Many have applications coming to your iPad making it an even better device to read from.

What Did Microsoft and Adobe Chiefs Talk About?

Steven A. Ballmer, Microsoft’s chief executive, recently showed up with a small entourage of deputies at Adobe’s offices to hold a secret meeting with Adobe’s chief executive, Shantanu Narayen.

The meeting, which lasted more than an hour, covered a number of topics, but one of the main thrusts of the discussion was Apple and its control of the mobile phone market and how the two companies could team up in the battle against Apple. A possible acquisition of Adobe by Microsoft were among the options.

The New York Times learned about the meetings through employees and consultants to the companies who were involved in the discussions that took place or familiar with their organization, all of whom asked not to be identified because they were not authorized to speak publicly by Microsoft or Adobe. Those involved in the meeting, from its logistical set up to the discussion that took place, were instructed to stay quiet about the two companies holding council.

In the past, Adobe and Microsoft have been rivals with competing software and the companies became really combative in 2007 when Microsoft began promoting Silverlight, its software plug-in for the Web that directly competes with Adobe Flash.

Holly Campbell, senior director of Adobe’s corporate communications, did not deny the meeting took place when asked via e-mail. “Adobe and Microsoft share millions of customers around the world and the C.E.O.’s of the two companies do meet from time to time,” she said. “However, we do not publicly comment on the timing or topics of their private meetings.”

Microsoft said it did not “comment on rumors/speculation.”

One person familiar with the discussion said the two companies had talked about the blockade that Apple’s chief executive, Steven P. Jobs, had placed on Adobe’s Flash software for its hand-held devices and whether a partnership by Adobe and Microsoft could fend off Apple, which continues to grow at juggernaut speeds.

Another person with knowledge of the talks explained that Microsoft had courted Adobe several years ago. But the deal never moved past informal talks as Microsoft feared that the Justice Department would most likely block the acquisition on antitrust grounds.

This person noted that at the time, Microsoft was the dominant force in technology and Google and Apple were not the giants they are today.

Randal C. Picker, a professor of law of the University of Chicago, said in a telephone interview that the technology landscape was drastically different now and that an acquisition or partnership of this nature would likely not be halted.

“There’s not a question that the atmospherics of Microsoft are much more different that they were a decade ago,” he said. “I think you could imagine Microsoft being a more aggressive purchaser in a world where they are no longer an 800-pound gorilla.”

Professor Picker said the Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission were focused on other large technology companies and consumer-related issues.
