iOS 7 Keyboard Tips 3

I wrote over two years ago about the lack of Bluetooth keyboard support in iOS. Specifically, it just makes no sense to me that Apple should give us some key commands, but not the most basic and useful in Mail. I stumbled across an article from Tao of Mac which points out that while there […]

Road Closed - Dead End?

Two great apps for taking and sharing photos on the iPhone

You have no doubt noticed lately on my blog that there have been posts with but a single picture and a few words accompanying the image. I am using the now widely used app Instagram, coupled with Posterous. The first allows you to run your image through a few funky filters and then post to […]


iPad use in research: Where am I now? 1

This post is my first to the summer project Digital Research in the Liberal Arts. It summarizes some of my prior posts made on the subject of iPad use and research. I have been fortunate enough to have had an iPad since they first came out. (As an aside, as much as folks label me […]
