Nice going Jake. With this it's just 100 day, any amount you want in each set as long as you hit 100. I generally do 25-30 at a time and will occasionally push to failure (can hit 40 if I try). Any style you want, I'm just doing standard wide pushups for now. Next month I'll switch to something harder like diamonds, etc.
I really do applaud Apple's goal of making things easy on the people that need it. I don't need it, give me the power. Apple has consistently dumbed down their products for this mystery bottom feeder out there. I am not him, don't insult me and treat me as I am.
As for the App Store I think the premise is fantastic but the implementation is flawed. You MUST play by Apple's rules (rules they don't follow themselves) and you are completely and totally locked into their world of DRM. I fully understand that groups create standards like you mention Jake (JPEG, MPEG, Flash, etc) but I'm only limited by my choice to use those things, not by my vendor.
In short it's MY device and I should be able to do what I want to with it. You are right that I'm VERY anti-Apple these days but wrong about me being a MS fanboy. While I use Windows and MS technologies they are also evil, just in very different ways.
Todd one thing about your argument about their Apps being more engrossing than the internet. That sounds very reminiscent of the AOL days when why would you use the net when you have AOL? AOL brought everything to you in a nice, easy to use, virus free way. And what happened to AOL again?
Keep 'em coming guys, this is fun.
Remember weight is all relative. A 9lbs laptop used to be pretty standard a number of years ago, now anything over 4lbs is considered fairly big. And that is something you only have to carry over your shoulder. Holding the iPad for extended periods of time becomes obnoxious.
So use one for an extended period and know what you're talking about - then by all means come back and proclaim how much stronger you are than all of us. Then put your arms straight out at your sides (with no weight) and make small circles. I'd bet you money you can't do that for 2 minutes and its really easy. At first.
In fact I have no idea who this device is really for. As far as I can tell it's for people with more money than sense that want to play with something shiny from Apple. Definitely a cool product but definitely not one that anyone needs.
And Todd you couldn't be more right - god how I hate iTunes...
