The Writer’s iPad is an ebook for writers who want to get the most out of their iPads. It doesn’t matter if you’re writing novels, articles, games, technical literature, screenplays, or even blog posts, this one’s for you!
As one who has written a book on an iPad, and still does a ton of my writing on one, I feel qualified enough to be able to vouch for this one. It is a pretty good overview of the tools, methods, and advantages of using the iPad as a serious writing tool. Worth checking out.
I failed to mention that Basil for iPad got a nice update recently. Added was support for importing and exporting from Dropbox, pictures, notes, and the ability to check off ingredients as you go. A very nice update to an already nice cooking app. If making food is your thing then you need this.
Some amazing stuff here. Well worth checking out.

FlickinAmazing is a gorgeous new Flickr browsing app for iPad with a minimal UI that really puts the focus where it belongs: on the beautiful photography.You can even browse anonymously if you are not on Flickr (or simply prefer to do so). Only $2.99 on the App Store.
I believe, with Marissa Mayer at the helm of Yahoo!, Flickr is about to make a comeback. You will need an app like this to make it a great experience on your present-future computational device.
Originally published on my Minimal Mac site but was reminded by the developer today that it is, in fact, iPad only (and, thus, first).

Earlier this evening, when Beatrix arrived home from a play date, she bounded enthusiastically through the door as usual and wrapped her arms around me. My wife, having heard the news, told Beatrix “You should give Daddy an extra big hug.”
“Why do you need an extra big hug Daddy? What happened?”
“I lost a good friend, honey. He died.”
“Why he died?”
“Sometimes people get sick. Too sick to keep living. So sometimes they die.”
She leaned back in my arms. Took a good look at my face. Caressed it on either side with both hands. Then threw her arms around me and squeezed me long and tight. Into my ear she whispered, “I’ll be your friend. I won’t died.”
She is insanely great.
Of all of the possible moments I remember from a year ago today, this is the one that sticks out to me most. Steve is missed for sure, but I’m far more thankful and appreciative of what I have.
