As mentioned before, just because you plan on getting a new iPad 3 doesn’t mean you should throw away your broken iPad 2 or iPad 1. Repair prices for the iPad 1 and 2 have been dropping so take some time and get them fixed.
There are many things that you can do to repurpose your old iPad or iPad 2 as seen in this great article I saw on Macworld.com. The article touches base on what you can do with your old iPad including using it as a dedicated e-reader, using it as a point of sale credit card reader, using it as a digital picture frame, or simply just hand it down to a friend or family member. The choice is yours, young Padawan. For example, keeping an old iPad lying around the living room simply for referencing things during conversation can prove invaluable. Heck, during a discussion I had last weekend I learned what exactly makes tonic water “tonic” water using an old gen 1 iPad to look it up! Be prepared to dust off your old black-lights from college if you decide to read this article about tonic water.
Each day that passes gets us closer to Apple’s next big announcement. It will be a good one. Just remember to tune into your live blog of choice as this event will most likely not be streamed live. Personally I’m a fan of Gizmodo’s live blog so you might want to check them out when the time comes. I know I know, it can’t come soon enough but we all must wait.

Well, if your NCAA brackets are doing as poorly as mine right now, you may welcome the change in sporting season. As always, after a promising first round and a 99.9th percentile standing in the ESPN rankings, I blew it in the Sweet 16 and now I’m fourth in the annual office pool. Phooey.
But don’t fret, sports fans (that address is literal this time, not just my usual term of plural-possessive endearment). Apple has got you covered. According to MacWorld, Major League Baseball has launched At Bat 2009, the successor to last year’s stat tracker with a cool new feature- live audio from games around the country. Ok, ok, countries. Sorry Toronto. Forgot you guys were still up there. So go get it now at the App Store and cheer your team on everywhere you go. Enjoy the Final Four, friends. Go ‘Nova.

Ahahahahahahah. Aaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahah. No, seriously. Lol. Why am I so hysterical this morning, you ask? It just so happens that I spent yesterday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium watching my beloved Chiefs find yet another way to lose a game. It was a thrilling first half, to be sure, but they went cold late in the game. And how’s this for an analogy of the day’s outcome- the mild sixty degree Sunday morning fell to twenty-three by the end of the game before plunging to a frosty nine last night. So clearly there are more powerful forces at work. Someone does not want Herm Edwards and Carl Peterson running this team. But I digress.
Well, MacWorld 2009 is fast approaching with little more than a few murmurs of new releases. Is there a smaller, cheaper, Nano-er iPhone in development? And if so, why wait until after the holidays to announce it? Steve, Oh Captain my Captain, you must have a plan. In the meantime, though, there’s plenty of shiny new MacBooks and MacBook Pros to buy up before the 25th. So go at it.
