New iPass

So apple sent out this press release yesterday.

My initial reaction was “What a giant waste of money!!” I mean you can buy 4 Chromebooks and give them out to students.

I realize that a Chromebook doesn’t have a touchscreen (yet) or a Retina screen, but they do have USB ports, a real keyboard and 320 GB of storage. Plus did I mention you can get 4 of them for the price of the new iPad.

I am writing this post on one of my son’s NOOK tablet, I just downloaded the WP app. So far I am impressed, it types posts well, has a block quote feature, and can import pics from the gallery. Too bad the NOOK doesn’t have a camera.

So thanks for the product update Apple, but iPass.
