WordPress 3.0 Beta Released

With all the buzz around the IPad and Apple lately, this may have passed by unnoticed…. WordPress 3.0 Beta was Released!!

Mashable.com has a great summary on its features as well as linky linky Loos!! Among notable additions to this beta is the combining of WordPress and WordPress MU (multi user) which will allow you to run multiple blogs from the same installation albeit with a few bugs right now in beta-land.

If you’re brave, you can download the update here and kick the tires on it. If you do, I would love to head about it and I will link to your shiny new WordPress 3.0 site!

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!
