You love the iPad. We love the iPad. Whether you're on the go or lounging around at home, Apple's svelte tablet is one of the most intuitive devices for getting online currently available to consumers.

The internet can be a frustrating place for the consuming public: it's so full of web ads, popups, poor site design and tasteless humor, that sometimes it's tempting to just turn the computer off in favor of going outside to experience real life. Fortunately, thanks to the efforts of Github user Erik Rothoff, the world needn't resort to such draconian tactics such as exposing oneself to sunlight or reading a book.

There's no getting around it: Aol has bought out well-known internet tech news site TechCrunch for an undisclosed amount of money. The acquisition encompasses all of TechCrunch's websites including GreenTech, TechCrunchIT, CrunchBase, CrunchGear and yes, the Crunch Empire mother ship itself, TechCrunch. That's a whole lotta website. The buyout was announced at the TechCrunch Disrupt event by TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington and Aol CEO Tim Armstrong. Armstrong told those in attendance that Aol planned to allow TechCrunch's merry band of journalists and editors to maintain editorial independence despite the plans to integrate TechCrunch websites into the Aol Technology Network.
