Introspective on the IPad!

hhgttg Ipad

I go into detail on the IPad and my thoughts on the release day as well as make a startling discovery about myself. Listen in on my own internal debate. How Close is the Ipad to Douglas Adams “Hitchhikers Guide” and more.

WordPress 3.0 Beta

I blogged about the WordPress 3.0 Beta release a day ago and now I talk about the pros and Cons of the WordPress Multi User addition and compare it to Dot Net Nuke (DNN). Full URL to Post here: http://geektechlive.com/2010/04/wordpress-3-0-beta-released/

Easy Way to preiew an IPhone and soon Ipad App.

I you are like me you scrutinize every Iphone purchase since those 99 cent charges can add up. Well, now you can have someone else spend their money and tell you what the app REALLY does before you buy it.  My Blog Article at geektechlive.com tells you all the nitty gritty as well as the link to http://iphoneappdemos.tv/

Make mine Marvel Ipad?Maybe Not.

Every since Marvel was bought out by Disney I have been keeping my eye on them before they turn into the Multiheaded Hydra that is Disney. I assume it starts with some sort of Bite like a Vampire then Disneys Fangs slowly drain the life force from their intended victims replacing it with unicorns and rainbows and incessant looping music on how its a very small world after all.

OK, Initial speculation by me in a blog post, on the IPad having Marvel Comics on it may have been a bit too soon. I dive back into the dark recesses of my brain to talk about the evolution of the Comic and how the IPad could kill off Comic books… the real tangible paper comics that I know and love and collect.

OK, that is all everyone. Have a happy Week and I will see you soon. Catch me on Twitter @Geektechlive or Facebook!

Marvel on the IPad… Awesomeness ensues

BoingBoing.com has leaked an awesome posting with lots of pictures  detailing that Marvel has, and will Launch an IPad app for reading comics. I am very excited about this as I have been saying  for awhile that the Ipad seems to be an excellent reading device.  Just recently a College has committed to giving every student an Ipad with their text books available for download.  its a very interesting concept.

Speaking of books, I was reading a Time.com Article on the review of the Ipad and it made references to Douglas Adams and his Wonderful “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy” novels.I am a huge Fan of Douglas Adams work  (R.I.P. Douglas) and I miss his writing style a lot.

It suddenly struck me as I was reading the article that this really IS the closest we have come to an actual hand-held  “Guide”. and as the writer of the article pointed out.  the Sad Truth is that Douglas is not here to witness it.

That all being said,  BoingBoing.com’s Marvel Posting can be read here in its entirety.

The very cool Thing about the Boingboing.com article is they even took the time to record video of someone ( presumably Xeni Jardin ) using the actual app and showing off the features.

Man, does it look cool!

So,  not only did they make the IPad functional they made it Marvel (ous) too. 😉

The easiest way to demo an Iphone or Ipad App.

I was doing some browsing online lately and came across this very cool site. If you have an Iphone or soon and Ipad and found yourself wondering if that new app does what the screen shots show it does you will love this site. http://iphoneappdemos.tv/ they have gone and recorded an actual user using the Iphone app right in a video you can watch and decide right there with out shelling out 99 cents to 5 bucks for an app that might just plain suck.

Overall its a very cool concept and I see myself using this site a lot more going forward. And no I am not getting paid to say this, its a really cool site!
