My thoughts on the Apple iPad and a great target market

Everyone is talking about the big Apple iPad announcement yesterday. I'm quite underwhelmed.

On the day the iPhone was announced I wanted one. I would've bought it that day if it was available. The iPad - not so much.

The UI in the demos ( looks super cool, but $499 for the entry level device is too much for me to plunk down when I'm not even that excited about it. I won't be waiting in line or hitting the Apple Store online when it's available Day 1.

I think it will be a great book reader, and it will smash the Kindle, but I don't read that much.

What I Need to Switch to Google Chrome Full-time

There are only a few extensions missing from the Google Chrome/Chromium library that are limiting my complete conversion to Chrome on all OS platforms that I use.

For some reason I wasn't able to get Audacity to pick up the stereo mix as an input so I searched around to find out how I could record the stereo mix coming out of a Linux workstations soundcard.

Fedora RPM Packages of Google Chromium

So I've wanted to try out Google Chrome on Fedora, but I'm kind of a purist in that I only like to install software on my workstation that comes packaged in an RPM. Many times if software is not available in RPM format I'll build my own with our in-house Koji buildsystem. Koji is the same system that the Fedora Project uses to build it's packages (
