Macworld: Six ways to give an old iPad new life.

Hmmph. My iPad 1 is still perfectly suitable. The only thing I want that I’m locked out of is playing with Adobe’s new app. If more apps go iPad-2-or-newer, then I’ll think about retiring it.

Salon: There is no ethical smartphone.

There’s no getting around the hard truth: right now, there is no such thing as an ‘ethical smartphone.’ Or, for that matter, an ethical flat-screen TV, digital camera or any kind of personal computer.

IRA Analyst: Facebook ‘Jumps the Shark’ Interview with Michael Whalen.

The media seems to believe that the valuation of the company is based on the “personal data” of the 800 million + subscribers of Facebook. I disagree — the valuation of the company MUST be based on their ability to actually MAKE MONEY inside of the paradigm and the environment they invented. So far, I am not impressed.Via JY on FB.

Globe and Mail.CA: Indigo joins growing boycott of books published by Amazon.com.

Although Barnes & Noble claims to sell 300 million books a year, Amazon surpassed the traditional chain’s share of book, e-book and media sales in North America five years ago. The online retailer’s current annual revenue of almost $50-billion dwarfs the $7-billion in sales made by Barnes & Noble, which continues to lose money despite the collapse last year of the Borders chain, formerly its main competitor.

And B&N;is thinking of spinning off Nook? Good lord. I suppose I’m not surprised - the software’s dreadful.

NY Times: Does Technology Affect Happiness?

Among the crucial questions that the researchers were not able to answer is whether the heavy use of media was the cause for the relative unhappiness or whether girls who are less happy to begin with are drawn to heavy use of media, in effect retreating to a virtual world.” This article will be the subject of many conversations, I suspect.
