Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag – The Tom Bihn Ristretto for Macbook Air

Screen Sharing and the iPad

I have been looking for a good app for connecting to the computers on my home network from my iPad. There are a number of choices in the iTunes store such as LogMeIn Ignition, as well as some others. Most of them are apps that cost between 20 and 30 dollars – not outrageous, but expensive enough that you want to make sure you make a smart buying decision. → Read the rest
