I’ve been busy with some things here at the house, but there’s a couple of things I wanted to mention that I’ve noticed over the past couple of days.
First, I was saddened to read that Jan Berenstein died over the weekend. I remember reading some of the older stories, or watching the various TV specials and shows when I much younger. Sharing those stories with my own children is something I look forward to.
Amazon is mucking around in the ebook sandbox again, which is sad. But it also makes me happy that Amazon hasn’t been my primary go-to place for ebooks… and if things stay this way, I’m not likely to convert anytime soon.
Apple has sent out invitations to a new event for next week. Rumor has it that it could be for an iPad 3… I’m still thinking that it’s not a “must have” item (yet), but I have thought about maybe getting one for Mary Catherine depending on what happens on the college application front… but even then not quite a 100% need… but it will be nice to see what the new specs and features might be… I also wonder if there may be a new iOS version coming into discussion as well.
I also noticed, over the weekend, that the next Mac OS version (Mountain Lion) has been revealed… with iCloud integration and porting some of the iOS apps back to the computer (Reminders and Notes, I’m looking at you) will be a nice addition.
