5 reasons not to buy an iPad

Nearly 15 years ago I had a Compaq laptop that did more than the iPad does today.

It had a completely detachable keyboard, a screen that worked in portrait or landscape and it had a stylus to write on the 'pad'.

I know, I know, it didn't have access to the internet and because of the power of PCs back then it didn't have the ram or disk space, but it was more versatile.

Do you still want one?

Reasons not to buy an iPad.
  1. With no stand, you have to hold it while you watch a movie.
  2. When the keyboad pops up it takes up a large part of the screen.
  3. Unlike a laptop, the screen has no cover, making it easily damaged.
  4. You can only have 1 browser window open at a time.
  5. It doesn't have a stylus.

Free trip for 2 to Hong Kong

From Steven Receives Award from Mike Rann

This is me on the left, after being presented with the main door prize of the night by South Australian Premier Mike Rann.
This was a couple of nights ago at the Hong Kong Business Association night to celebrate the Chinese New Year.

...Its all happened so fast, and I have nothing prepared, but lets see...

Firstly I'd like to thank my parents - especially my mum and dad.

Then there's my friends who have given me great support over the years.

And finally nuBuilder, who without, I wouldn't be here at this networking function because I wouldn't have anything to promote.

Thank you nuBuilder.

Is there anything nuBuilder can't do?

Google's vision of the future

Google's Chrome OS..

..If this is the future of computing, those developers creating applications like accounting systems or rosters or CRMs will not only need their users to access their applications in a browser, they will also need their development environments to be browser based.

These are all things that nuBuilder already does!
