A few days back I was up all night with a cold, so the following afternoon I felt like I just needed to take a nap. I wandered off to my bedroom and was about to pass out, but I felt like I needed to set an alarm. My iPhone was nowhere to be found, so I picked up what was handy — my iPad.
Now I’ve used my iPad for the clock before, but I couldn’t remember when. Setting the alarm seemed so foreign to me, but maybe that was just the cold talking.

Being that my job is to review apps, I make quite a few purchases from the App Store. Some apps are free, some aren’t, it all depends on what it is, but I always get a receipt from the iTunes Store when all is said and done. In fact, I get so many of those that it would concern me if it wasn’t, you know, my job.
But what about you? Do you spend lots on iTunes and the App Store or are you keeping it as low cost as possible? Let us know in the poll to the right!
We’re not big fans of Valentine’s Day around our house — or at least that’s what I tell myself as I run to the store to buy something for the wife. But we often do find ourselves with a lot of things in common when it comes to tech. If I get a new iPhone, my wife has to get one, too. That wasn’t the case with the iPad until the mini came out, and now we both have iPad minis that we carry around everywhere.
What about you? Do you and your significant other both have iPads? Let us know in the poll to the right!
Come this Tuesday (my birthday, incidentally), a new iPad will be on the shelves. Well, kind of new. It’s a fourth-gen iPad with 128GB of storage, which is the biggest iPad yet.
Is this a must-buy for you? Are you a power iPad user who needs all that storage or are you satisfied with what you have? Let us know in the poll to the right!

When I bought my first iPad, I got home, unwrapped it and put most of my movies on the shiny device. But the music? That stayed right in my iTunes library because I didn’t need it. And why would I? There was never a point where I could see myself hanging around and listening to music on my iPad when my iPhone was just as close and more convenient.
But what about you? Do you listen to your music collection on your iPad? Let us know in the poll to the right!
You’ve probably heard of Adult Swim. They’re a time slot for Cartoon Network, and there you’ll usually find the type of animated features that are too hardcore for a toddler. You know, the brand of “mature” cartoons that those of us with mortgages can appreciate.
They’ve also been making games for the web, Android and iOS, all with the same type of mature theme that we’ve come to expect from the brand with the famous commercial bumps. One of their relatively new offerings is Major Mayhem, a rail shooter that hands you a gun and lets you take out the bad guys. Want to know more? Let’s take them on after the jump. (more…)

So my wife and I have a problem. When it came to our first child, naming him was no big deal. We had a name picked out fairly early, we both loved it and everything was great. But now, just two months away from kiddo No. 2 coming out, we have no idea what we’re going to name her. Making things more complicated, we’re locked into a naming convention, so our selection is even narrower.
In the interest of figuring out the problem, I turned to the iPad and Baby Names. Could it be the solution to our baby naming issue, or just another deadbeat dad in a sea of crummy apps? Let’s find out after the jump. (more…)
