Now, even more compact charge-and-sync or just charging solutions are available."

"iTooch Elementary, by edupad, has hit a another home run, and this time it is a grand slam! They have combined age groups and content to give this app an incredible shelf-life. If you don’t find what you need, you can even make your own. The app is free to download and nine titles can be tried out before purchase; in-app purchases can be made for each topic."
"In his book "Start with Why" and the accompanying TED talk, author Simon Sinek claims that we're all very clear about “what” we do. In fact, you often define yourself by what you do - "I'm a teacher" for example. You focus heavily on "how" you should do whatever it is you do and usually develop a routine to make it easier."
"This week’s App Synergy ties in quite well with Lenny’s previous piece about apps coming together towards creating a digital comic library. Similarly, I’ll also be talking about a digital library, only it’s of the non-comic kind."
"Jeff Cavins, CEO of Fuzebox, recently wrote in Business Insider that the explosive uptake of tablet computers is fueling the growth of what he called the new “iPad economy.” Cavins said: “The iPad is shifting the way businesses function, changing how executives interact and transforming the economics of today’s business operations.”"
"Over the last day or so, I've been working on the following document. I thought I might share it out with you to get your feedback. If you read it and see something that looks familiar, then you know I was successful in swiping content from something you've written or said. My thanks!!
"For the past two days, I've had my 7th graders working on a screencasting project. We're currently working in a unit focused on prisms and calculating the surface area and volume of prisms. I gave each pair of students a rectangular prism (a box of some sort), and had them measure its dimensions, calculate the surface area and volume of the prism, and screencast their work--complete with pictures of each of the 3 views of the prism as well as their narration of their work."
"Whew, over the last few days, it's been horrible suffering on my Macbook. For some reason, the OS is clunky, slow, and though it has pretty pictures, I am definitely missing the command line. While playing around with my iPad, I've had to do some interesting jobs and stumbled on some apps that you may find of interest."
"In our chat about Frame Artist, one co-worker said “is a light Pages”, which seems to have stuck with us when talking about the app. The app comes with layout templates that you can add images to so that the creation of documents is much faster. Those documents aren’t notes, rather colorful invitations, calendars, flyers, time tables, newsletters… pretty much anything you want to assemble to share. "
"This week’s feature includes the official Klout app, which has finally made its way to iOS; a great service for storing and syncing your passwords from security specialists Norton; a beautiful weather app, and more."
"Part of the benefit of jumping forward with a 1:1 iPad deployment like we have tried is that we get the opportunity to impart knowledge to other districts looking to do a similar initiative. While that might not seem like a benefit, it actually also means we can make some mistakes because there is not a long history of this type of deployment in the world. "
"Album Art Home Screen Wallpaper is a brand new iPad (and iPhone) app released today in the App Store. The app has a simple and great concept – combine your music library’s album art with some good-looking background themes to create some unique and striking wallpapers for your iPad."
"I’m very invested in the iPad as a laptop replacement, and I endeavour to make it my main machine when I’m away from my desk (at which I currently use an iMac). I travel regularly, often to speak at events, and I try to embrace simplicity and to work away from my office as much as I can.
To that end, I’ve compiled a list of my essential iPad applications for productivity, that I use regularly when:"
"Even the maximum volume on the iPad can sometimes seem a little quiet, which has prompted many of us to perform thet tried-and-true ‘cup your hand over the speaker’ trick that gets us a little more sound –which works really well for a quick video clip but isn’t terribly practical or comfortable for more than a few seconds."

"I’ve tried a couple combination iPad-case/Bluetooth keyboards in the past, and always come away unhappy. First, they’re bulky, and second, the keyboards are just plain bad. I’ve never been able to type faster on them than I can on the virtual keyboard. "
"eBay has been available on the iPhone and iPad for years now. While, for the most part, it is possible to get at things you may want to buy, the iPad app hasn’t really been using all that screen space effectively. With the 2.0 update, eBay has done a much better job at offering a mobile version of their service that is quick and easy to use."
"Without using iCloud, the iPhone, iPad, and iPod backups can take up a lot of local disk space on a computer. If you’ve moved the iPhone/iPad to sync with a new computer, sold an iOS device, or just want to potentially free up some disk space, you can easily delete these backups directly from iTunes."
