Pie CorbettQuadBlogging News I am really pleased to announce that QuadBlogging is undergoing a HUGE makeover both in appearance and behind the scenes. QuadBlogging 2014 is now live at QuadBlogging.com for you to register. QuadBlogging will no longer run for set cycles.

Year of the iPad 2 | TiPb The late Steve Jobs called 2011 "the year of the iPad 2" and almost a year after it was introduced, almost 2 years after the original iPad was introduced, it remains a product selling in the tens of millions with absolutely no competition in sight. And that's a shame because, as a consumer, the one thing I want most is strong, meaningful competition for the iPad. It's become a cliche to say "there's no tablet market, there's only an iPad market", but like most cliches there's more than a little truth to it. Very few people want a tablet.

Though I haven’t gotten an iPad yet (NOTE: Now I have!), we did get one for my mother-in-law. So, with an eye towards helping her now, and me in the future, I put out a call to readers to their suggested resources as well as hunting for them on my own.
