When I bought my iPad Pro (the big one) last fall, I really wasn't sure if it would fit nicely into my needs for an iOS device. I gave my iPad Air to my wife who really needed an upgrade from her iPad 2 which she inherited long ago when I purchased the iPad 3.

Recently, I was looking for a back cover for my iPad that would be a complement to both the red leather Smart Cover from Apple that I often use as well as the Logitech Ultrathing Keyboard Cover that I wrote about recently.

I just received my new Tom Bihn Ristretto bag for the Macbook Air. I purchased an STM Scout from Amazon shortly after I bought my MBA in April. The Scout is a fantastic bag for carrying both the MBA and the iPad. My only problem with the STM bag is the lack of space for extras like pens, earphones, etc.
Like many other iPad owners with a Squarespace hosted blog, I have been anxiously waiting for the iPad app for Squarespace. The iPhone app is very nice but reasonable mostly for checking and approving comments, etc. Now with the iPad app, I can very realistically post with some regularity to Quawkle using my iPad. Thanks for a free Christmas present, Squarespace!
I am hoping to attend a developer’s conference this November for iOS platforms in Los Angeles. On of the funding sources I was counting on has denied my request. It is a disappointing turn of events and now I am not sure if I will still go or not. It is not an overly expensive conference and meals are included in the price, but I would also need to pay for airfare and hotel at 170 per night.
