Preaching with the iPad
One of the questions I've been getting is "How do you like preaching with the iPad?" I've only taught off the iPad for a couple of weeks, but I love it! I actually think it's easier than preaching off paper notes. The reason being, there's no light directly over me when I'm preaching, so occasionally I'll get shadows on my notes which make them a challenge to read. With iPad, the lit screen gives me all the light I need to read all of my notes. The other question people have asked is, "What software are you using?" I am … Read More
10 Days Later…My iPad Review
In short… I love it! Instead of writing some long review, I thought I'd post reasons I love the iPad: 1. Pages – It mirrors Pages on the Mac very well. Plus, it opens Words files as well. 2. iPhoto – This is a really nice. The pictures look great. plus, you can set the iPad to roll pictures and have it serve as a digital frame when you're not using it. 3. Typing – I haven't purchased the keyboard, so I've been typing on the screen keyboard and I think it's great. plus, it auto corrects (which most … Read More

Thoughts on the Kindle
Well, I got my Kindle from Amazon on Friday evening and I just finished reading my second book on it, so I thought I'd share some preliminary thoughts on it. #1 – The Kindle is great! I wasn't sure if I'd like it, but I love it. It's very easy to read on. I was concerned that my ate of reading would #2 – Not every book is available for it, which is a little frustrating, but I'm guessing that publishers will get with it with their back catalog as they are with new titles. #3 – The … Read More

ipod Spring Cleaning
I took on a project today that needed to be done: I cleaned out my ipod of stuff that I’m never going to listen to again. I had so many messages/ podcasts that I have downloaded and listened to and so I went through the task of going through them to make room. There’s some things you just aren’t going to listen to over and over. Some got trashed. Others got put on my external drive for future use/ listening. Moral of the story: I’ve got 7GB’s of space open on my 30GB ipod. Plenty of room for new stuff. … Read More
