iPad 2 to have faster processor and thinner design

On March 2nd, Apple announced the iPad 2. This new iPad included a FaceTime camera, a faster processor, thinner design, and a choice between a black or white colored iPad. Apple has decided to drop the iPad case they designed by replacing it with a cover that magnetically attaches to the device. The cover comes in many colors, and can be used to cover the screen when not in use and as a stand, by folding to the back . The new iPad can also mirror whatever is on the display through either HDMI, VGA, composite, and component cables. It is also compatible with the wireless Apple keyboard. Apps that come with the iPad and that can be purchased include FaceTime for video calling to friends on another iPad 2, iPod Touch 4th generation, iPhone 4, and on a Mac. The iWork suite of office applications can be downloaded as well as iMovie, Garageband and iBooks. If you have other iOS devices or an Apple TV, you can enable AirPlay which will have all content you have on your iOS device be shared on another iOS device or Apple TV. The new iPad will be released on March 11th in stores and online, and will sell starting at $499 for the Wifi 16 GB and $629 for the 3G model with 16 GB of storage for the AT&T; and Verizon networks. For more information, visit the iPad webpage.

Piratz Tavern has Closed, and I'm Glad

If you've ever seen the show Bar Rescue, you know that in most episodes, bar owners are decently pleased with the renovations that happen at the end of the episode. Understandably, some of the owners aren't pleased because they loved the bar they had, they just wanted it to be successful. To those owners who quietly took down the updates, or even kept them, that's cool. It's your business, do what you gotta do. One episode in particular did more than just some updates, however.

In the episode, a pirate bar in a corporate part of town in a state without an ocean called for help to Jon Taffer. Apparently, a bar with a pirate theme and a complete staff of costumed pirates in a state not known for pirates doesn't work very well, and the owner was over $900,000 in debt. Taffer found the usual mistakes: bland drinks, bad food, and cocky owners. When Taffer suggested to move away from a pirate theme to the owners and bartenders, it was like he suggested they cut their arm…

2013 Jeep Patriot Review

If what you're looking for in a vehicle is the most patriotic sounding car, look no further than the Jeep Patriot. Or an American Motors Eagle. Oh, if I could've been a car buyer in the '80s, the Eagle would've been my ride. And honestly, they have a lot in common: they're both car-based crossovers designed to give 4WD when you need it. The only thing the Patriot is missing are those sweet door handles and the gigantic windows. And wood paneling.

The Jeep Patriot was designed to be a baby Liberty/Wrangler for those who want better fuel economy in an SUV with a Jeep logo on it. In 2007 when the Patriot was released, there was no Renegade, or Cherokee to provide for a fuel efficient alternative, your other choices were the Compass, which looks like a baby Grand Cherokee, the tank Liberty, and the family-sized Grand Cherokee and Commander. Now that the Jeep lineup has the Renegade, Compass, and Cherokee, where does the Patriot fit in? Well, it won't for long, beca…

Jeep Patriot Base Model Questions

I have a 2013 Jeep Patriot Sport. The "sport" is Jeep's nice way of saying the buyer didn't pay a lot for this car, at least compared to what they could've paid. My particular Patriot has no power windows, locks, and mirrors. However, it does have:

Air conditioningLight up cup holders4WDSpeed sensitive intermittent windshield wipersThis thing that stops the car from rolling backwards when on a hill, which is nice with the manual transmissionA flashlight in the ceilingThe visors extendDecent four-door speakers Now, I'm not complaining, I bought the car because I like it a lot, I just thought it was funny how much comes standard, or can be optioned in besides power convenience.
