Martha Stewart shatters the iPad that Steve Jobs gave her, wonders if Apple will come pick it up

Amusing Twitter feed this evening from domestic entrepreneur Martha Stewart on the dropping of her iPad and the subsequent hushing she got from Apple PR. It appears that she got the iPad from Steve Jobs (so I’ll go ahead and assume it is a few years old) and I guess she expects Apple to pick it up and fix it.

Here’s what I’d do: I’d have one of my people take it to the Apple Store or ifixyouri.com and get it fixed. While they are out, have them get a new iPad that Steve Jobs didn’t get for you and use that day to day. When the Steve Jobs iPad comes back, put it somewhere safe.

Review + Giveaway: Velocity helps you get through your reading list faster

Velocity is a new speed reader app for your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad that helps you read faster by presenting one word at a time using a technique called Rapid Serial Visual Presentation. Studies have shown that using Rapid Serial Visual Presentation helps increase reader’s reading speed because it forces the reader to stop reading out loud inside their head (subvocalization), and suppresses the tendency for eyes to backtrack the line while reading and searching for the end of the sentence. Generally a reader’s average reading speed is two hundred words per minute, but Velocity supports reading speeds up to one thousand words per minute.
