It’s Apple’s iPad, and I’m not going to make a joke.

The joke is on Apple for choosing such a silly name, I defer you to search the internet for a MadTV sketch titled iPad, because I am not going to make any jokes. Meanwhile, Spirit got stuck, and ok, thats really about it. Apple’s mind-share is way too big.

The Technology Trifecta

This week is a short show as I talk about how to solve the world’s problems, no really, I do. And I talk about how Apple wants to solve all the world’s problem by having you buy their products… okay, that last one isn’t really true, but it sure seems like it.

This Podcast is all about HTC Today

@mcafee15 is on the show today and we talk a lot about phones and predicting the future. Hopefully if we write the books that we say we will, and they get published, we’ll be millionares by the time we are however old we’ll be when our predictions come true.
