Keeping Up with Technology

The technological advances produced everyday is amazing and further drenches today's society in what people in the past couldn't even fathom.  When so much technology is being invented, however, how can we keep up?  Take the iPad, for example, an overgrown iPod Touch.  The orignial Wi-Fi iPad was released in the U.S. on April 3, 2010, while the Wi-Fi iPad 2 was released March 11, 2011.  Less than a year later, possibly the most advanced piece of technology for the general public had just gotten upgraded.  These fast releases make it almost impossible to keep up with the latest technology.  What are your thoughts on such rapid technological advances?

Goal Achieved!

Pixelated here, and I'm so excited! I absolutely love HTML and CSS, but I have been having difficulties in CSS. For me, DIVs, classes, and IDs were almost out of reach. Not now! They are actually relatively simple, so those who wish to learn CSS shouldn't fret. Just keep at it and you'll eventually learn them.

Oh, and it's good that these are simple. They all make coding a lot easier and help spruce up your page, so I consider them a neccesity.

App Overload!

I am so mad at Apple for this! You want to know what this is? Apple has set a crazy limitation for at least the iPod touch and most likely the iPhone. You can only install 9 pages of apps! This is crazy! You should be able to install all of the apps that you can fit onto the device. I wouldn’t be so upset about this except for the fact that they make it so hard to delete apps that you have. I am so annoyed at this. I am surely going to send Apple an email about this. Be sure to tell your friends about this and remember to send your suggestions to
