Geeze, How Long Has It Been?
How were your holidays? What fun gadgets or other nifty gifties did you all get? 🙂
Sorry about the huge gap in blogging. I was slowly withdrawing from reading feeds & doing much of anything else online other than reading & posting on Jaiku, Twitter, & Pownce (mostly Jaiku). And over the holidays I got rather sick, which really sidelined me for a while. Anyway, enough excuses. I can’t promise that I’ll be more prolific in the coming days, weeks, or months, but I’ll try my best!
In other news, I’m excited for tomorrow’s MacWorld keynote. Rumors about a tablet-style Mac have been running rampant again this year, but I think the ModBook will be the only tablet Mac for a while. There will probably be an ultra-portable MacBook. I hope it’s not called “MacBook Air” as the rumors claim. 😛 What I’d really like is direct WiFi downloading of podcasts to the iPhone/iPod touch. Yes, I can already do this via a 3rd-party hack, but native support would be nicer. That’s really all I care to predict at the moment. I’d love it if Apple would release an iPhone-like tablet with a 5″ or 7″ screen and decent amount of flash storage, but it won’t happen this year. Maybe next year. Whatever is announced, I know that tomorrow is going to be unproductive while the keynote is happening. 🙂
The other even that I’m looking forward to this weekend is the Detroit auto show! The hubby & I have gone every year for at least the past 4 years (IIRC). It’s a nice weekend road trip to take after the holidays. I’ll talk more about what gear I’m bringing later. Right now I really need to get to bed!
P.S. I really hate touchscreen inking… *sigh*
