Steve Jobs

My world has been forever changed by one man. I cannot and will not even begin to attempt to express the sadness I feel over his loss.

Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

Songs Created Using iPads and iPhones

This is just mindblowing that these songs were created with only the iPhone/iPad! As makeuseof also mentions in their sample collection of top 10 YouTube songs article …

The Gorillaz recently released their latest album, The Fall, accompanied by the announcement that the album was produced almost entirely using an iPad. While The Gorillaz did let a few traditional instruments in on the album, there have been a whole slew of artists, professional and amateur that have been showing just how far you can push the limits of the iPad, and in the process create great music.

iTouch as iPhone?

Pogue’s latest post about Line2 seems too good to be true. A dollar app that gives your iPhone a full second number with voicemail, texting and all that. Even when it’s not running it rings to your regular phone number. If you’re in a wi-fi zone, it uses that instead of AT&T without using any minutes. You basically save 30-50 a month even after the 10 a month fee for Line2! Additionally, and amazingly (since the new iTouch/Pad have a mic) it turns your iTouch into a full functioning phone that will even take a voicemail (and email you about it) when you’re not wi-fi covered. Incredible.
