Keep up the good work Anamanaguchi!

iPad 1 Owner's Impromptu Bonding Inside Target




I traded my old iPad 1 in to Target for a $200 Target gift card. What I wasn't expecting was how well I would get along with the impromptu group of iPad 1 owners waiting for their chance to trade in.

Replacing Google - 3 Months On



YouTube: Replacing Google - 3 Months On by Jim Younkin

It's been three months since I started to replace all the Google services in my life. (See my related video The Google Problem.)

How have I done since then? Not too bad. Many of the things I thought were irreplaceable (search, email and browser) turned out to be easy to replace.

Things I thought were going to be next-to-impossible to replace (YouTube and Blogger) turned out to be very hard to replace.

All in all I feel I'm in a better position to lead, if not a "Google-free" life, at least a "Google-light" life from here on out.
