Earlier this week I sat by the door with my proverbial tail wagging in anticipation of the Fedex truck's arrival. When it finally came, I tore open the box like a kid on Christmas morning.The new iPad was mine.Having purchased the original iPad (the 32GB Wi-Fi model) a couple years earlier, I'd decided to skip the iPad 2. Despite its slimmer design and dual cameras, it wasn't compelling enough for me to part with another $600.But with the iPad 3 (sorry, "new iPad"),
So you’ve decided to make the big move, to ditch the pokey old laptop that takes half an hour to boot, contracts a new virus every other day, and barely lasts through lunch before running back to its charger.Yeah, you might say I’m feeling a little anti-laptop these days. Or at least anti-Windows, because I’m fed up with these and other issues that have plagued hapless users for, well, ever.But, yay, tablets to the rescue! They’re not only thinner, lighter, and faster than
I’m about to do something unthinkable: I’m going to recommend a Microsoft product.No! Must… resist… Satan!Nope, it’s happening. Here it comes: The best back-to-school PC is the Microsoft Surface RT tablet.Whew, okay, I said it, it’s out.Crazy, right? Everyone knows the Surface RT is a joke, an overpriced, under-capable tablet that’s destined to end up on the Microsoft scrap-heap alongside the Kin, the Zune, and other misfires.But you know the old saying:
... The latter costs $9.99, making it one of the pricier apps you’ll ever buy–but it’s worth it.Dedicated Kids’ ToyTablets are a singularly awesome way to keep kids occupied, entertained, and even educated, whether they’re in the backseat of the minivan or waiting for the food to come in a restaurant. But do you really want those sticky fingers pawing an iPad?Instead, dedicate the old, unwanted tablet to the rugrats. Stock it with beginner-math apps, children’s books (notably the excellent selection of Dr. Seuss and other titles from Oceanhouse Media), and other kid-friendly stuff. And if the tablet happens to get dropped, stepped on, or covered in peanut butter, well, just remember it was sitting on a shelf before.Your picks?Have you found any other great uses for a seemingly useless tablet?

Having only just recovered from the horror that was winter, 2013-2014, I can’t believe I’m saying this: It’s time to start thinking about fall. Specifically, about school, and the gear that goes with it. For many kids that means a new laptop.My son, for example, is about to start middle school, and he’s eligible for the district’s “laptop program,” which integrates technology into the curriculum. Thankfully, the school no longer requires a Windows laptop
... Comfort Tablets are lighter than any laptop, with most 10-inch models weighing anywhere from 1.0-1.5 pounds. They’re thinner, too, usually measuring less than half an inch thick. All told, they’re much nicer to tote around all day.However, they’re not always as comfortable for all-day computing. That’s because they have smaller screens–again, around 10 inches–and lack physical keyboards. Companies like Logitech and Kensington make some great keyboard/case accessories for iPads, but the keys are necessarily smaller and closer together. For overall computing comfort, especially when there’s typing involved, it’s hard to beat the trappings of a laptop. Winner: Laptop Connectivity All laptops and tablets have Wi-Fi for keeping you connected to the Internet, but very few of the former offer any kind of built-in 3G or 4G wireless capabilities. Granted, you can pair them with a mobile hotspot or even your smartphone, but that’s not always the most practical solution.All iPad ...
