Okay, this is seriously cool.  When it comes to music there are usually only two ways to consume it: listening or watching. Bjork has now introduced a third consumption method to get your daily tunes, and that is on your iPad!  Leave it up to Bjork to be the first on this inventive train.

Many people are posting prediction about who they will choose to promote this new piece of technology.  When I was browsing through the web and looking through my music blogs, I noticed the blog called “Music For Kids Who Can’t Read Good” had some awesome predictions.  They said on the keynote for iPad there were artists such as Muse, Spoon, the Decemberists, and Alicia Keys.   (more…)

By this point in time, you’ve surely been acquainted with Apple’s new in devours in the female hygiene market with its latest in “game-changing” technology, the iPad. If you haven’t seen one yet, be sure to visit Apple’s website for images and videos. Or, if that’ too much work for you, grab a friend’s iPod Touch and look at it under a magnifying glass. Ta-da it’s the future! Yeah right. Go back into hibernation, Steve Jobs.

For us self-proclaimed Apple enthusiasts, there has been a lot of disappointment about the new iPad and Internet users have been quick to respond. From across the World Wide Web, I am proud to introduce you to the truth about the iPad, or, as many Twitter users like to refer to it, the “iTampon.”
