Ironic: Look Who Advertises on iPad Insight

Microsoft Surface ad

Oh the irony. As I’ve been flipping though the pages of iPad Insight on Flipboard over the last couple of weeks I couldn’t help but notice shiny new ads from one particular company.

That would be Microsoft. They’ve run ads for Xbox, for their cloud services, and even for that handsome fella at the top of this post. None other than the Surface 2 RT.

Have to say, that made me smile.

— Faster page load times – because that’s just always a good thing.

Happy 2014

Happy New Year

Well, there goes another year.I know it’s a well-worn cliché, but Boy did 2013 fly by. It was another great year for the iPad too.

We had to wait an awfully long time for them, but we got two impressive new iPad models – the iPad Air that brought the best of the iPad mini to the bigger iPad form factor, and the new iPad mini with the Retina display that was top of everyone’s wish list for the more diminutive iPad.

The iPad’s operating system got its annual upgrade, to iOS 7 – and the number of apps designed specifically for iPad surpassed the 500,000 milestone.

2014 should be another fascinating year for the iPad and mobile technology in general. The pace of change in technology seems to continually accelerate – so it’s impossible to get bored if you follow this space at all. I’m very much looking forward to my 5th year of writing about all things iPad here.

I hope 2014 is a year full of health, happiness, and success for all of you.
