    Life is What Happens When Other Things Get in the Way

    Already it’s the end of the month, and despite being able to keep a tenuous hold on the *Picture a Day* project, the blogging a day project has quietly slid to the sidelines….

    Perhaps it’s because January has been a quiet month on the technology front? CES was a bit of a bummer? Apple and RIM haven’t done anything exciting?

    The CRTC took a vacation?

    No - it’s more like life and work have seriously begun to encroach on each other. Morning time has shrunk to a state where there’s only time for news, two coffees and FB before the work day begins.

    This is going to be a crazy year. It’s finally the year of VoIP, and i’m not talking about your sketchy Vonage type of VoIP… It’s the year when TDM and IP collide. It’s the year of outsourcing everying. It’s the year of the data centre. It’s the year of dragging toll free into the 21st century.

    It’s a wonder I still have time t sleep!



    The New iPad.

    I took the plunge. It’s a combo of cottage device, photography tool and income tax rebate all rolled into one.

    Why I love it:

    • amazing battery power
    • you can’t go wrong with the size
    • the apps are fantastic
    • i could actually be productive with this, if so desired
    • the 3G is key


    • i do wish it had a webcam built in. This would be the perfect skype tool.
    • Multitasking - coming soon
    • better speakers —- they aren’t bad, in a pinch, but better would be better…
    • a dock extending cable… all my stereos have a iTouch dock…. i need a cable to allow me to use the iPad in these stereos, and no, I don’t want to use an Aux cable.

    I envision my self-control over app purchases being eroded away over time.
