Happy Thanksgiving to all of you who celebrate it. Hope you all have a great, relaxing day and long weekend.
I’m thankful for so many things today and in general. For health and happiness. For my beautiful and wonderful wife. For my amazing daughter who surprises us every day with her knowledge, her passion for learning, and just her enjoyment of all the world around her. For my immense good fortune in finding a great new IT consulting gig – a job I love and that still leaves me with time to devote to this site. For having ended up in Austin, the finest town anywhere in the world. For the Cowboys being not quite as terrible as last year. And so much more.
My big Deputy Editor Dog was hugely thankful for a Ginger Man healthy treat I was about to give him when I took the pic above with the new Retina iPad mini. Now he has mostly forgotten his thankful feelings and is primarily concerned with looking out for more treats.
Hope you all have lots to be thankful for today too.
I won’t be publishing any normal posts here today.
I’ve had some very bad news about a close friend who tried to take their life yesterday, and I am doing what little I can from a long way away to help out.
Perfect ending to a holiday Monday here. My daughter invented a new game called ‘Nose Ball’ and apparently my big Deputy Editor pal is aces at it.
It’s a simple game. We throw a big silly ball in the air somewhere in the region of Deputy Editor’s head and he makes like a trained seal and noses or head butts the heck out of it and sends it flying. He enjoyed it big time and we couldn’t stop laughing.
Hope you all are having a great Monday too. I’ll be back to normal iPad posting service in the morning.
Happy New Year. 2012 felt like it went by in a flash – and it was an eventful year for iPad owners and fans. We saw the release of a new iPad 3, the lovely little iPad mini, and the unexpected iPad 4 alongside the mini in November.
We also saw the iPad operating system updated to iOS 6 with a slew of new features.
2013 should be another action-packed year for the iPad. It now faces more and perhaps stiffer competition from Android tablets and others. There’s speculation that Apple is ramping up its refresh cycle for the iPad too – so we may see a 6 month refresh cycle rather than the one year cycle they initially followed. That might result in a new iPad 5 and / or new iPad mini release in the March April period.
I’m excited about the new year, for a number of reasons. Here’s wishing all of you health, happiness and success this coming year.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you in the US.
I’ve got tons to be thankful for this year. A great family, work I enjoy doing, great friends online and offline, living in the best town anywhere in the world, Austin, and lots more.
Hope you all have much to be thankful for as well and are enjoying the holiday with family and friends.
