….My latest post on LA Times Framework
Links from the Podcast
I just posted my first podcast on iTunes. It will be my weekly thoughts on the world of photography, Mac, iPhone and iPad. The podcast will feature my reviews, the latest and greatest, plus an occasionally an interview.
It’s probably not going to be too groundbreaking, but I’ve always wanted to give it a try. I plan to produce a 15 to 20 minutes a show. If you have any suggestions for topics, be sure to send me a note.

Steve Jobs made it official, the new Apple iPad is a reality and will be ready for shipping in a couple months. It looks very sleek and should compete well at it’s $499 price point with many of the e-readers and mini-notebook computers.
Probably the most important feature, to me, is the availability of the keyboard dock. Also, they have introduced an iPad iWorks app for $9.99 which should make it a more functional computer.
While it’s really not much more than a jumbo iPhone without the phone and camera, it is an amazing piece of engineering. It may be a replacement for a laptop computer for some, but not for me. -RL
