The Jot Script Evernote Edition Stylus

I think everybody who uses the iPad for work has been waiting for the One Stylus To Rule Them All. Or, really, just a stylus that doesn’t make it feel as if you’re writing with an undercooked sausage. I preordered the Jot Script Evernote Edition Stylus with its Pixelpoint (TM) technology so fast my credit card burned rubber. I considered it a bonus that Evernote is already my go-to app for everything.

Anticipation kicked into high gear when I got … Read More »

Survivor + Catalyst Waterproof iPhone case

Waterproof case Recent activities included a trip to the ocean with a bunch of kids and some four-wheeling. My phone spends most of its life in the Speck SmartFlex Card case, but gets moved into the Otterbox Defender when it needs a little more protection.

iPod Down

The Short Kid thought having a passcode requirement for his iPod Touch was cool. Then he decided changing it all the time would be even more cool. Until he forgot the passcode and locked himself out of his iPod.

Restoring it’s been a nightmare. It put iOS6 on it, which I hadn’t intended to do. And every time I try to sync it, it insists on putting every app and song we own on the damn thing and it … Read More »
