"It turns out that the iPad has some magic, invisible keys. They sit at the ragged ends left over as the keyboard splits and shrinks to the sides of the screen for easy thumb typing. If you hit the space to the side of the T key, for example, iOS will spit out the letter Y, just as if it were still there. These phantom keys continue down both sides, letting you access Y,T,H,G,B and V across the void in the center."
"Today, we learned that Adonit has released a ‘mini’ version of their Jot Stylus. This isn’t a short little mini pen or a hollow light weight stick. Instead, Adonit has removed just a little bit here and there, leaving the right amount of weight/size and especially their special writing tip."
"Review: This interactive StoryApp is written expressly for the younger set, but that didn’t stop us from loving it. This app takes travelers back to a legendary moment in Parisian history, with a famous narrated/tour guide. Fantastique!"
"Take a look at the RCA USB Wall Plate Charger, a gadget which does exactly what it says on the label.
The charger is simple, and all the better for it. Round back is a standard 3-prong plug, which mates with any grounded socket in your or anybody else’s home. On the front of the rather utilitarian-looking box is a pass-through three-pin socket and a pair of USB ports. One of these ports will supply 2.1 amps of juice to charge the thirsty iPad, or you can hook up two of any other USB-powered device."
"This is a growing collection of free edu apps that are considered to be "surprisingly educational". Many are edutainment in nature. We have provided ideas for integration for each app (in our "appy hours 4 u" show) that span across content areas and multiple grade levels."
"The iPad is missing a calculator like our iPhones come with. Just a basic calculator that you replace the little plastic one on the desk with. It would be nice to have a couple features of course… maybe a tape, editing past calculations and the ability to share. It would appear the folks at Shift had the same need with their Digits Calculator."
"East Haven, Conn., reading specialist Gina Tomassi sits with second-grader Isaac Florentino for a quick reading evaluation, listening to him read a short story about a riverside village ... But on this recent morning at D.C. Moore Elementary School, it’s all done with the touch of an iPad."
"We were kidding with our post title... well, sort of. If you already (or the person your giving the gift to) have Better Weather http://ow.ly/921kD loaded on the iPad, visit the ‘Themes’ area to upgrade the graphics to a special Valentines look."
"Equal parts skill and creativity, woodworking is one of those things that can be every bit as much a professional as a hobby. This means there is room for every skill level and all manners of style and customization. This is where the new Woodcraft app comes in, allowing you to not only design your next woodworking project but also create a bill of materials, plan for the tools you will need to use and visualize your project as well as carry it through to the finished product."
"A while back I did a post on top sites for Digital Storytelling. This has been a skill that is being taught in school districts all around the world, and is a key for developing technology literacy. With the recent wave of mobile devices and technologies, a giant step has been taken in how students develop these skills (via touch screen) in a brand new way ."
