    "We're really pleased with the excellent work done by your crew. They were fast, efficient and easy to work with. Our garage is not flooding for the first time in six years thanks to the new down spout and paintwork."

  • iPad On The Hunt To Replace Newspapers

    [caption id="attachment_3307" align="alignleft" width="309" caption="iPad replacing Newspapers"]newspaper[/caption]


    With the iPad becoming more and more popular, it is no surprise that people are using their electronics to get the news, rather than a newspaper. Mickey Meece of The New York Times discusses more in his technology section article All The News You Want, When You Want It.

    Each morning, bleary-eyed, I retrieve the newspaper, glance at the headlines and toss it on the coffee table to read later.

    I know I shouldn’t admit to that — in a newspaper — but I’m an avid newshound. I want to know what’s happening right now, so I reach for the iPad instead and dive into the news of the day.

    A new one pops into the App Store every week or so. Most are created by small start-ups, but AOL has created one, and Google is said to be working on one, too. CNN just bought one called Zite. I love to open Flipboard to see pictures from different sources, like The Daily Beast, Flickr and Lonely Planet. It even has catalogs. Or, I’ll put News360 into its random 360-degree mode, watch the photos scroll by and try to guess why those subjects are in the news. The other day I saw a photo of SpongeBob, so I tapped it.
