When I started reading this blog post I was expecting to read a review about the iPad. Instead, I got something much better.
The blog post is about a man who lost his iPad on a plane. Along the way we encounter his hopeful daughter, some helpful and not so helpful airport employees, and a good Samaritan. We get to experience dread, excitement, joy, disappointment, and hope with the characters in the story.
I would encourage you to take five minutes and click the link to this blog post and read it for yourselves. I really enjoyed it and I think you will too.
I suspect many of us find ourselves using various electronics late into the evening. I know that I am guilty of this. Between watching Netflix on my iPad or checking emails on my iPhone I probably spend too much time in front of a screen before bed.

I believe that in the next decade we are going to see an explosion of new technology. As microprocessors and wireless chips become smaller and cheaper, everything in your home will be able to connect to the Internet and talk to each another. This will open up a whole new world of possibilities like your refrigerator communicating with your cell phone.
This is a crazy cool app. It uses the front facing camera on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch to measure the light reflected off of your face to determine your heart rate. I have been using it the past few days and I have to say that I am very impressed. It normally cost $4.99 but is on sale for $.99 for Labor Day Weekend. Download from the App Store.
