Which means we've been doing this for a full year, and change. Very exciting. 1. New iPad: So, as anticipated, the March 7th Apple event was all about the latest generation of the iPad, not aptly named the 'iPad 3'. It's a bit faster and has a retina display, but, generally speaking, it's quite similar...albeit still as beautiful as ever. 2. iOS 5.1: In addition to launching the new iPad, Apple has brought us an updated version of iOS. So, jump up and down with glee and download the software update. 3. Live Streaming of the Olympics: Gone are the days of misisng some of your favorite events at this global extravaganza. NBC has partnered with YouTube in a live streaming effort - starting July 27th! Twitter: @London2012, YouTube, @nbc 4. Scoot Networks: If you like the concept of the ZipCar, you'll love this service specifically for scooters. And, the good news? Since they only go 30mph, you don't even need a special motorcycle license. Twitter: @ScootNetworks 5. Nature Valley Trail View: Combine Nature Valley, of the granola scene, with a bunch of hikers plus a tripod + camera + the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, and the Great Smokies, and you get the 'trail view' version of some of America's greatest natural wonders. Twitter: @Nature_Valley 6. Tweet a Beer: Yep, it's just what it sounds like. You can buy someone else a beer via your Twitter account. Quelle service! Twitter: @tweet_a_beer Happy geeking! G + Kyra
