Finally, The Ultimate Blogging iPad App?

I recently told a friend that there are only two kinds of people in the world: those who have an iPad and those who want one. His reply added a third category: those who don’t know what they are for. This prompted me to describe a typical day with my iPad. I am a 66-year old Read More

Behold, All Things Have Become New …
