Got iPad? Need case!

 I can't believe how many people invest $300 or more on an iPad, and then just carry it around casually in their purse, or just by their hand, and don't even have a cover on it, let alone a case!

Yes, the screen is designed to resist scratching and stuff, but c'mon people, let's get real.

At the very least you need a cover, but an iPad keyboard case or iPad portfolio case are really the ways to go - something that totally surrounds your iPad and prevents it from being damaged - because let's face it, "if something can go wrong, it will."  Better safe than sorry!

Take a look at these cases from icarryalls.

These are some sweet leather cases, and have room for a keyboard as well as the iPad itself. Yu can get an iPad keyboard case  or an iPad portfolio case. (And of course that's not all, browse their entire website to see what else they have on offer.


I don't know if I want to see the new Godzilla movie or not. Frankly, I wish they'd do a movie based in the 1950s, and try to recreate the original!

That would be cool!

As for this, no, no!

Entered the first Memory Lanes Alzheimer's Bowling Tournament today

I talk about it in my Wyoming in Motion blog.

I knew the people in charge of the Alzheimer's First Annual Memory Lanes bowling tournament, but as I explain in the link above I wasn't going to participate in it.

Then, I did.

Read all the news at the link above!

The Space Art of Andrew Stewart

Way back in 2008 I put up a page at The Thunder Child webzine ( showcasing the outer space art of Nottingham UK artist Andrew Stewart.

I'm currently going through The Thunder Child and refurbishing all the pages, and I've started with Art and the first article I've done is The Space Art of Andrew Stewart.

Check it out. Lots of strange new worlds to explore there.

Are we ready to talk cell phones?

I don't know that Star Trek can claim to have started the cell phone revolution - Dick Tracy had a wrist communicator in the 1930s comics... - I do know that one reason why I'm reluctant to go from a cell phone to a Smart phone is I've got a Motorola fliptop phone, which I got when I went with the Tracphone no-contract service, and it looks like a Star Trek communicator to me. And if I remember right, it was only $8!

But sooner or later I'm going to have to let nostalgia go and move into the modern world, especially since I've got a boss in Portugal who makes mobile websites and wants me to be able to scope them out on an actual smartphone here in the US.

Anyway, I've been bopping around the internet looking for resources to help people with cell phones, smart phones, carrier issues, all that good stuff, and I've found one at a site called Clear Talking.

Here's the URL:

A lot of their contributors are from overseas and it's interesting how tech works in places like Guatemala, etc. where you don't think of people having access to cell phone service.

So if you're trying to decide between an iPhone or an Android, or a tablet, why not check out those forums and see what they can offer you?
