The new iPad 3

I don’t have an iPad. In fact, the lack of support for Flash, which, for better or worse, is ubiquitous on the Web, ensures that I will probably never get the new iPad 3.

But, imagine the Google revenue I’ll generate from the Apple fanboys merely by mentioning the new… Continue reading

Good grooming, but…
