iPad Links: Monday, April 12, 2010

I wasn’t supposed to do any posts this weekend. But I did. Then I wound up doing seven frikkin posts today, before remembering I still had this kind of post to do.

Tomorrow might be a very short day and also lack a Links post. You have been warned.

And this one is shorter than it could be due to not getting around the Net today as much as I usually do.
