iPad Links: Friday, May 21, 2010

Kittens still alive.

No big Net sweep today due to hardware change. Had to uninstall one brand of printer, install a different one. Uninstalling took about ninety frikkin minutes! And that, HP, had better not be a taste of what you might do to webOS! As for the other printer, both the CD-ROM and web-download versions of the drivers failed to install. Maybe you should rethink selling printers, Kodak!

After the break, a shorter Links post than usual.
