As Sweet as it Is, the IPad is No Computer: Some of the Things You Cannot Do on an IPad

Like the name says, it’s just a pad. It’s not a notebook computer, nor a laptop. Basically, the iPad is a dedicated web surfer, supported mainly by third-party applications. The iPad is a wonderful thing, it really is. However, if you intend to use an iPad as a webmaster then you need to put on the breaks and turn around.

I can tell you with all certainty the biggest negative about the iPad is that it is very difficult and sometimes impossible to upload files anywhere. I first discovered this problem over a year ago when I was blogging from my newspaper site Mobile Tribune. I was using The Ning platform and the browser out of the iPad box – Safari, when I went to attach an image file and found I could not do so. The little image icon you would normally see above the blog text window was not there. In fact, there were no icons. I researched the issue and found I would need a new browser. After installing several browser apps ( you do not really “download” on an iPad, you install an app), I found all the icons present in the Atomic Web browser.

The really big problem had not yet revealed its ugly head: the inability to upload files from the iPad. The problem with uploading on the iPad is it is built to only allow transfer of photos you have stored in your photo albums, or to snap a picture on the fly and transfer it. In my case I wanted to upload word documents and PDF files. The iPad does not really have a desktop or a file storage system so you cannot navigate around the device like you do on a computer even if you have or use a super boost wifi. Ipad may be a nice device today but users should know and be aware that it still has its own limitations.

Further research reveals there are work-arounds on uploading files from the iPad, one of them being the use of a browser call iCab. I bought this app for $1.99 and continue to research, but at this point I am unable to trick Kindle books and the iPad and iCab into allowing me to upload a book to the Kindle site. The only option is to upload photos. Supposedly, you can transfer a file to Dropbox or similar programs – or from the latest web buzz phrase – the cloud – and upload in this manner. I do not think this method works from all web sites.

The only other thing I will mention about the iPad is something you can fix by attaching a keyboard to it, but if you are, as I am, a fast typist, the iPad is very unforgiving by connecting words together. You think you punched the space bar hard enough but you did not. I still like my baby but hopefully one day she will grow up.

Love ’em or hate ’em, Crocs are everywhere. I couldn’t understand for months why those “ugly shoes” were so popular. Everywhere I looked, hot pink, orange, acid green rubbery looking things covered the feet of strangers everywhere. Then, they infiltrated the workplace. Now my co-workers were insisting that Crocs were the best shoes you could ever own. And then I tried a pair on, and now I know why.

Comfort:

If you’ve never tried on a pair of Crocs, you’re missing out on a piece of heaven. They may look like a piece of brightly colored tire tread, but they have the sole of a cloud. The day I tried my first pair, I’d already trekked through the mall, my feet were throbbing, my legs were sore, and I just wanted to go home. Within 5 minutes of wearing my new Crocs (purchased on the spot), the pain had left, and I was ready to keep walking. If you want to add more comfort to your Crocs you can add best insoles in them as well. This will give your feet additional support that they need.

Health:

There are so many health benefits to wearing Crocs. They form to your feet, so no matter the shape of your foot, or how high your arches, these shoes are supportive. Goodbye expensive inserts! They’re made of a bacteria resistant material which is wonderful for those with “stinky feet syndrome”, and for anyone who is prone to foot infections. Crocs even makes two special models for diabetics, one of which has silver embedded into the sole for even greater protection from infection.

Even better than being bacteria resistant, these shoes can be sterilized in a bleach and water solution should anything unpleasant happen, or if you work in an industry that seems to court messes (for instance, nurses, cooks, and farmers), without damaging the shoe, or the color. Add the large vents that allow air and water to pass through, and the fact that they weigh only 6oz (less weight= happier legs), and there just are no comparisons.

Travel:

Crocs were originally designed and marketed as boating shoes, so they’re slip resistant. They can air dry in minutes, or be wiped dry instantly. This makes them perfect for traveling to the beach, or to rainy destinations. Since they can be washed and dried within a minute (and with the help of Crocs Butter), you could wear them swimming in the ocean, shower at your hotel, rub with Crocs Butter, and have the same pair of shoes looking like new for your big date.

Price:

Crocs start out at $20 and go up to approximately $70. Even at the most expensive, their prices beat out all of the competition. When knock-off brands can only beat Crocs price by $5-10, you know that the price is good.

Fashion:

Yes, the original Crocs are bulky, and bright, and ugly. And while that particular style remains incredibly popular, Crocs has come out with an entire line of very attractive shoes. The Cleo and the Patra are gorgeous sandals, and the Sassari is a great looking wedge. They’ve also come out with quite a few variations on the flip-flop.

Since there’s such a high demand, most stores won’t be able to pick and choose what they want, so you may only be able to get them online.

My Personal Experience:

I go on vacation to Walt Disney World almost every year. Anyone who has been there will tell you that it’s a lot of walking. Every trip that I’ve taken there, I barely lasted 3 hours before having to sit, even if it was on the ground while waiting in line.

This was my first trip with my Crocs, and I will never go without them again. It was three days before I felt the need to sit, and even then it was after midnight. I was not only able to keep up with everyone else, I was often having to stop to wait for them. Even when we were caught in the rain, and everyone else’s sneakers were soaked through, my Crocs dried within minutes while I was still walking.

Not bad for such an “ugly” shoe.

The Bissell Powerforce Bagless Upright Vacuum is a great vacuum. No matter if you have a couple of rooms of carpet or a whole house to vacuum you will be happy and get the job done with this one.

It has a great design. It is really kind of sleek looking. It is a really powerful vacuum. I have kids and two long hair dogs. We all know that sometimes dog hair sticks like a magnet but this vacuum just sucks it right up with no problem. The kids also create what people call a high traffic area and if I use my Bissel Proforce in those areas the carpet does not get all stained and worn out looking. It is very light weight so it is no problem to carry around the house and even up the stairs. My kids can even help out with the vacuuming because of its light weight. Of course it also has all of the attachments that you can use on upholstery and to get into corners and crevices. I absolutely love the fact that it is bagless! No more putting out money on bags and also forgetting to even buy them most of the time. I just empty the canister and I’m all ready to go. It also has a filtration system on it, it really helps cut down on the dust. This helps me out a lot because when I clean and get into a lot of dust I start to sneeze like crazy. You do have to rinse out the filter quite often but I really don’t mind because it gives such a great benefit.

I have had this vacuum for quite a while now and I have to say that it is holding up very well. It still has just as much suction as the day I bought it so I think I really got a great deal and a lot of value for my money. I only gave around $50 dollars for this vacuum. That is in the very low range but it cleans like an expensive one! I have to admit that I was surprised. I was not expecting a vacuum that cost so little to work so well. I have used all of the very expensive vacuums in the past, like Electrolux and others but this one seem to match them just fine. I am very impressed with it and would definitely buy another one if I had to replace this one. I have recommended it to many of my friends and one has bought one already and is just as impressed with hers!

If you are looking for a great vacuum that you won’t have to spend a lot of money on I would definitely tell you to buy the Bissel Powerforce Bagless Upright vacuum. You will not find a better, higher quality, more convenient and easy to use vacuum even if you spend more money. This is definitely a keeper!

All that is required from your side is a staubsauger vergleich (read vacuum cleaner comparison) of the best models available today and make sure that it falls in line with your budget.

If you’re buying a home, consider the advantages and disadvantages of purchasing both newer homes and older homes. If you’re open to either option, consider presenting your real estate agent with your total budget-meaning the price range you’ll commit to spending including repairs. This can help your agent locate both new and old homes that suit your preferences and budgetary requirements.

Space

With a newer home, the newness comes at a cost-your money will go a lot further in terms of space when you purchase an older, more outdated home. Regarding this point, you’ll need to decide whether you can afford a newer space large enough for the needs of your family. The Pasir Ris Central floor plan should be considered for knowing the space between the bathroom and kitchen with the bedroom. The floor plan can be checked in old home and implemented in new homes.

Renovation and Personalization Cost

In both new and old homes, you’ll incur a certain amount of cost in renovation and personalization. That includes things like fencing (if you have a dog and the property has no fence), painting the rooms according to taste. The closer a home is to suiting your needs, the less it will cost to finance changes.

In an older home, you’ll likely incur these costs plus more major renovation costs, which you may or may not wish to conduct immediately. Things like plumbing, leaky roofs and large driveway cracks are gateway problems that can lead to more substantial damage and must be fixed immediately.

The costs of renovation and personalization are definitely things you need to consider when looking at homes-and when looking at your pre-qualified home loan amount. To make things easier on yourself, it may make the most sense to borrow the cost of the house plus the cost of repairs and personalization to avoid immediate financial strain or incurring multiple loans.

Ongoing Maintenance

Homes are like cars in that new and old ones eventually require maintenance. Old homes often require more immediate fixes whereas newer homes may provide some breathing room for you before things start to break. Either way, it’s best to consider a budget for ongoing maintenance and emergency repairs when looking at monthly mortgage payments.

Utilities

Cracks, drafts and larger spaces will automatically raise the cost of heating and cooling your house. Most older homes have higher electricity bills than newer ones; some newer homes are even built with the environment and energy conservation in mind. Don’t forget to factor in the cost of utilities when looking at homes and a monthly mortgage payment.

Character

The character, history or personality of a home or a specific style of home is a primary reason for some homebuyers’ preferences for older homes. While some people might be bothered by creaky staircases, others feel that it provides a feeling of comfort and a less sterile environment. Newer homes and new home styles can also have character, however; some are specifically designed with certain architectural facades in mind.

While there are pros and cons to newer and older homes, you should never judge a house totally by its age or exterior. A ten-year-old home that was neglected by previous owners could house a score of issues in comparison to a well-maintained Victorian. Never purchase a home or sign any contract or agreement without a full inspection from your own trusted inspector-even if the home is brand new.

As a man, you must be using a razor to trim or shave your beard and other undergrowths frequently. But using a traditional razor can be really irritating at times.

It will surely help you save time yet give the best look you always wanted to have.

Photography is not just a current trend, like bellbottoms were in the 1970’s. In this digital, iphone, facebook, myspace, twitter, weblogging age, it’s not going to die anytime soon, if ever. Everyone needs a profile picture somewhere. Technology is continuing its advancements, providing new ways to capture and record an image of reality. Take for example, canon80dblog.com/best-lenses/, where an avid learner of photography can come to learn about different type of lenses. Technology is even allowing time travel to become a reality, bringing back the past, with professionals and amateurs taking black-and-white photos and using vintage cameras. Whether or not you know what you’re doing, or even if you don’t do any photography at all, unless a stranger comes up to you with a camera and asks you to take a picture of him/her with their boyfriend/girlfriend (and you know it’s for there facebook or myspace page), it’s nice to know a little bit about the history of photography. The trend might not have an end in sight, but it started somewhere.

Ansel Adams was far from the first photographer, but he is still a milestone in the development of photography as an art and is part of the history of photography. He might be a very good place to start. Most professional photographers if they look far back enough, will remember taking some kind of course on the history of photography. The best way to learn is from example. Perhaps this is the reason for the Ansel Adams exhibit in the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park. The exhibit is entitled, “A Life’s Work” and is on display from May 23-October 4, 2009.

Two of his most famous pieces include, “Moonrise, Hernandez” and “Monolith, Face of Halfdome.” The latter, I actually studied in depth in an art history course I took on modern American art. I have never seen anything that I’ve studied in class in real life until that moment. Those couple of minutes staring in awe at the tiny image in that overwhelming frame, strengthened my desire to travel the world and see the actual works that I’ve studied in real life and more. It’s like meeting your favorite author, musician, or celebrity, minus the haggling with agents and you don’t have to worry about the fear of rejection; will they like me?

Art is ot about the newest avant-garde or the most advanced products or methods. Sometimes, the newest trend is the oldest, but if you don’t actually have knowledge of the past, how can you look back at it? It’s like looking back at a childhood playing in the lush forests of Malaysia, but you’ve never actually been there. How would you know what it’s like? How would you know of the joys in taking black-and-white photos with the grainy effects caused by time and the lack of 21st century technological editing, if you were never there to take them? How could you create a feeling of nostalgia when you’ve never been in the past yourself?

Yes, it is indeed impossible to go back to those times, but it is possible to mimic what they did in the past, which requires an understanding or knowledge of history. I don’t claim to be a photographer, but as a lover of history, particularly art history, I recognize its importance. I think MOPA and I share that commonality.

You don’t have to be an aspiring photographer to appreciate this exhibit. You don’t even have to understand anything about photography at all. I know next to nothing. Most of Ansel Adams’ work centers around nature, which is universal. It is universal in that it is everywhere, and because of that, anyone and everyone can appreciate it.

The blockchain has been transforming the face and pace of money systems and it can do so much more. As a developing technology, it has the power to pull of social initiatives such as in corporate giving or donations bei unserem Test.

Charities today are facing a decline because people are growing skeptic about where their donations really go. There are trust issues creating problems in businesses. Fundraising practices are being mismanaged and huge amount of funds are getting into the wrong pockets.

The emergence of the blockchain technology helped create a more trustworthy image for charities. The actual blueprint of a blockchain helps enable trustworthiness and transparency in charity giving. This is one important edge of blockchain technology from the traditional route of corporate giving that is tainted with corruption and scams.

Builds Trust between Donors and Organizations

Charity giving is more legitimate now than ever with the integration of blockchain technology. Around 25% of fund just vanished in thin air due to corruptive practices especially at the government level. The misallocation and waste of funds is disastrous and frustrating because it should have been used for the good of the majority.

With blockchain integration, corporate giving is now tamper-proof because each transaction is independently verified by different people or organizations or otherwise known as a consensus. The entries are also irreversible and immutable which mean’s it is permanent and can’t be modified.

With smart contracts, negotiations and executions of contracts are verified right away which speeds up the processing and delivery of donations.
