TaskPaper for iPad - app review

TaskPaper for iPad - app review

TaskPaper is a simple paper-like application that allows you to write out tasks in a list, strike them out when done and for good measure add some tags to keep things straight. This type of task management is almost the polar opposite of David Allen's GTD methodology (see my GTD with Evernote post here).

Hog Bay Software has done a fantastic job of capturing a more simple task management system that is based on Mark Forester's AutoFocus system. When you launch the app you have a nice "Welcome" document that teaches you the basics of interacting with TaskPaper. You can make notes, tasks and projects. So, I jumped right in and made two projects: AutoFocus Oct 2010 and AutoFocus Nov 2010. My goal being, every month I would create a new list of tasks. This is a great way to keep things in a concise list, other wise your list would grow to crazy proportions.

UPDATED: Apple buys Wi-Gear, Bluetooth headphones on the horizon?

According to 9to5 Mac, Apple has acquired Wi-Gear which is a small Bluetooth headphone designer from San Francisco. Previously Wi-Gear had made A2DP stereo headphones known as iMuffs along with Bluetooth adaptors for older generation iOS devices that did not support Bluetooth 2.0 and A2DP. Wi-Gear products were always aimed squarely at iPod devices.

Verizon airs "Breakaway" iPad commercial

No the title isn't a typo -- Verizon has actually aired an iPad commercial called Breakaway. Since Verizon is now carrying the iPad Wi-Fi in a bundle with the Verizon Mi-Fi hotspot device, it makes sense they'd want to promote it. Still, feels weird. Like something is a changing...

Check out the commercial after the break and let us know what you think.

TinyUmbrella update (4.1.13) allows iOS 4.2b3 SHSH blobs to be saved.

TinyUmbrella update (4.1.13) allows iOS 4.2b3 SHSH blobs to be saved.

Semaphore has updated TinyUmbrella (4.1.13) to allow for the saving of iOS 4.2b3 SHSH blobs for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and the iPad. This is the first time SHSH blobs are being saved for a beta release and the significance is as of yet unknown, but semaphore tweeted that it might be used to assist the untethering of future jailbreaks. Since the release of iOS 4.2 is imminent, iOS 4.2b3 signatures will not be available for long.

You can download TinyUmbrella from the link below to save both iOS 4.1 and iOS 4.2b3 SHSH blobs regardless of what firmware you are currently on and I recommend doing so immediately just in case they are needed down the line...
