OverDrive Media Console eBook Review | Katherine Boehret | The Digital Solution | AllThingsD Get out your library cards: Now you can wirelessly download electronic books from your local library using the Apple iPad or an Android tablet. Last week, OverDrive Inc. released OverDrive Media Console for the iPad, a free app from Apple’s App Store. With the app, you can now borrow eBooks for reading on the go with a tablet. You can already borrow an eBook from a library using an eReader, including the Sony Reader and Barnes & Noble Nook, but you’ll need a PC and a USB cable for downloading and synching. Amazon’s Kindle doesn’t allow borrowing eBooks from libraries. For the past week, I borrowed and wirelessly downloaded digital books onto tablets primarily using OverDrive, the largest distributor of eBooks for libraries.
A Parent's Struggle With a Child's iPad Addiction I think my 6-year-old is addicted to the iPad. He asks for it constantly. He wants to use it in the car. He wants to use it at every unscheduled moment at home. He brings it to the dinner table.

I hate my iPad: Can my tablet-loving Slate colleagues ... I admit that I bought my iPad for the wrong reasons. I got one because it seemed like everyone I knew had gotten one for Christmas and, well, I felt left out. I didn't think about how it would fit in with the gadgets I already owned (laptop, Kindle, iPhone), and I didn't borrow a friend's and take it on a test drive. Now I just feel annoyed, having spent $600 on a device that hasn't done anything to improve my life. A salad spinner would have been a better investment, and I don't even eat that much salad. I don't think the iPad is useless.

Blackboard and iPads More instructors (and students) are using iPads to access Blackboard. Unfortunately, Safari, the iPad's default browser, interacts poorly with Bb; text windows found in Announcements and discussion boards are often inaccessible. There is a fix--Safari isn't the only Web browser avaialable. iLunascape is a free one. Read here and here for descriptions of others like Atomic and Grazing which offer features like tabs, VGA out and full screen viewing. iLunascape is the only one that I have tested and it does appear to provide a better experience in Blackboard.

iPad only: The iPad is a device destined to be handed over to friends and passed among family members, but there are no user accounts or variable browser settings. Enter Switch, a clever browser that allows user accounts and anonymous guest browsing. At its core, Switch sets up password-protected user accounts for a browser that shows up whenever Switch is started up, or when returning from a screen lock. That alone makes it worth the current 99-cent price for many, but Switch has a few other tricks up its sleeve. Most helpful to iPad owners, who have a seeming obligation to show the device to their tablet-less friends, is a guest mode that doesn't mess with settings and wipes away history, cookies, and passwords whenever the guest is done. Switch is a Smart Multi-User Browser for iPads
Will the holiday season heading towards full swing, and all the recent data about the astonishing rate of adoption of the iPad (faster than any other new technology before it) we can guess that sales up to Christmas time will only further push this tablet device towards ubiquitous status. And, in my discussions with other GeekDads and GeekMoms and ongoing exploration of the device in our own home I am comfortable now with the idea that the iPad is the closest we have yet come to a “family computer”. We only have one device in our household, and it is in high demand. I use it for different work functions, the children not only have games and educational apps, but have been using it to read their favorite comics. It is used in the kitchen when we decide to try a new recipe and the ease with which it can be handed around amongst friends at a dinner party is one use that has shocked me.
