The Apple iPad: iDon'tGetIt

Steve Jobs unveiled the highly anticipated Apple iPad several hours ago.

Not sure what to think of it right now other than
1. It would be really nice to be able to check out the internet through a tablet interface sans mouse
2. Wow, that thing is really thin and must be really light as well!

But then,  I can't imagine any other position for using this that's comfortable other than if you were sitting on a couch and had it on your lap. I like surfing while in bed. How'd I do that with the iPad? Or if I was in a coffeshop, it would be real hard to type with this on a table.

Mashable has some other issues as well.

  • No Multi-tasking
  • No Drag and Drop File Management
  • No USB Port
  • No SD Slot
  • No Flash
  • No HDMI Out
  • No 1080p Playback
  • No Native Widescreen
  • No Camera
  • No Full GPS
  • No Open SDK

Read the full article here.  In essence, it's more of a media consumption device, rather than a computer. And contrary to what some bloggers have been saying, I don't think this really poses a problem for the netbooks.

And then there's the funny name (at least to me): iPad. Why not the iTablet instead? Right now, it sounds like somebody thought it would be cute. It of course has led to some jokes already, one of which is in this video from MadTV:

I'm sure that there are those who absolutely love this device -- hey it's an Apple! -- but I'm not one of them yet. (And hey, I love Macs, remember?)

Michael Jackson's Dancing Inmates soon on DVD/Blu Ray!

Got this in my inbox this morning: the Cebu Dancing Inmates do a Michael Jackson medley with MJ's choreographer Travis Payne and dancers Daniel Celebre and Dres Reid. The routine was supposedly designed for the This is It tour with MJ planning to take to the dance floor with the inmates. (How that would have been possible is anybody's guess!)

In any case, the inmates are back and they're fitted out with new shirts, pants and shoes -- and a spanking brand new routine. It's pretty slick and the inmates outdid themselves this time. 

MJ would have been proud.

Taking Brand Love Too Far?

Some people tattoo logos of their favorite brands on themselves as a sign of their devotion. Harley-Davidson has a lot of those kinds of people.

But this guy takes it to a new level by tattooing not just a logo but a model shape: Ray-Ban Wayfarers!

What brand would YOU tattoo on yourself?

Guys Gone Gaga

When two guys set out to do a medley of Lady Gaga songs, you wonder if it can come to any good.

Pretty good, yeah?

Donate to Help Haiti

This video was taken moments after the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti the other day.

That's not fog. That's concrete dust rising through the air after the collapse of hundreds of buildings.

Here's what it looks like on the ground -- that's the Palace of the Haitian President:

Here's a bird's eye view:

You can help. Here's David Letterman to tell you how.

When even the Red Cross has run out of supplies, you know it's serious.

You can help donate to the victims of the earthquake in Haiti by clicking on this link: That will take you to the World Food Programme donation page.

"I love it when a remake's put together"

Well, not all the time. But there's always the hope that it'll be better than the original.

This time, it's the A-Team!

Wait for it, fools!

This is really just plain flat-out cute.

Now to try to train my doggies to do that....

Thanks, Ria!

Happy New Mash-Ups! (2009's Top 25 Hits in One Song PLUS The Wonder Girls with Amy Winehouse)

Before you all rush headlong into 2010, here's a retrospective of 2009's top 25 songs, mashed up by DJ Earworm.

Happy New Year!
