The person who downloads the 50 billionth app could win a $10,000 gift card to the app store in Apple – iTunes – 50 Billion Apps Countdown. I am trying to imagine being able to buy that many apps. It would be fun to try, though.
In these days of cutbacks to so many library services, I was surprised to see a notice on the Monument Library door announcing they were opening an hour earlier most days, at 9:00 am. When I mentioned it to the librarian, she said that most of the Pikes Peak Library District libraries were following suit, due to “popular demand.” We have a fabulous local library system, and it will nice to have another place to get wireless access when I don’t feel like getting breakfast at Starbucks or Panera’s.

When I got this iPad last March I unpacked it, fondled the smooth surfaces for a short while, and realized that I would have to get a non-smooth case or I would be dropping it all the time. I bought a super cheap folio case that could also be used to prop up the iPad in landscape mode. It served well, but is looking a little battered. One of the iPad web sites recommended Moko as making affordable smart cases so I checked it out.
The MoKo Rotating Detachable iPad Cover (above in landscape prop mode) is a smart case, which means that it turns off the iPad when I close the case. It also rotates so that I can prop up the iPad in portrait mode. I ordered it last week from Amazon, after reading the reviews there, and I am very pleased with it.
