Link roundup

1. This review will make you think strongly about buying a first gen iPad instead of the iPad 2.

2. And if I had a tablet, I'd definitely sign up - - a year of Marvel's Unlimited Digital Comics is $60, and right now it's 30% off with the code Thor302011.

3. Portal dual screen wallpapers.

*Buy iPads at eBay.


  1. Hold on a second there SP: that Marvel Digial Sub is really just for computers running Flash, so mainly desktop and laptop machines. I got burned last year thinking the same thing you did, that I'd be able to read all these comics for free on my iPad. So far you have to buy digital comics on the iPad individually.

    Now whether this means an Android tablet running Flash could use the subscription, or if they block all tablets, I can't say.

    Also, I don't agree with that review at all. iPads 1 and 2 are both good, but the speed and weight savings in iPad 2 made it worth selling my old one to buy it. And it's stupid to expect using something this size as a regular camera; it's just fine for regular stuff like video chatting and capturing QR codes and UPCs.

    (P.S. You can never have too mant Portal items. NEVER.)

  2. Oh, no kidding. I can't stand reading computers on my desktop.
