Generally speaking, hybrids are good. Hybrid cars save us money on gas and help the environment. Genetic hybrids produce delicious fruits like the grapefruit and tangelo. Without hybrid experimentation in music, we wouldn't have such brilliant, groundbreaking records from Miles Davis and the Beastie Boys.
But hybrid PCs are another story. There are plenty of them out there — powerful tablets that connect to full-sized keyboards; laptops with screens that spin around or detach — but none are really making any noise. It's not for a lack of design; some of these machines are so, um, inspired by the MacBook Air, you'd think they were designed in Cupertino, but still, they come and go without much fanfare.
Of all the hundreds of ways of organizing information, a flexible, smartly linked wiki is one of the most modern, useful, and efficient. VoodooPad lets you easily whip up personal wiki pages including text, images, and more. If a word or phrase on a page needs further explanation, select it and click the Link button, and VoodooPad creates a whole new page for you to expand on it. Once you’ve created a page, any time you type the associated word or phrase, VoodooPad automatically links it to its page. Pages can have aliases, too--secondary words that link to the same place. For example, if you have a page about Apple, you can create an alias for AAPL (Apple’s stock market ticker code), and then every mention of that AAPL will also link to your Apple page.
When you dream of computers, do you dream of high-resolution displays? What about 5.1 million pixels on a screen that is almost comparable to the resolution of the human eye? A screen where the picture is as detailed and sharp as the scenery outside your window? Whether or not you’ve got the cash for it, you can’t deny that the MacBook Pro with Retina display is one of the most impressive notebooks ever built. But unlike the iPad’s vast library of Retina-ready apps, the Retina Mac apps are lagging a bit behind. More often than not, owners of the new MacBook Pro have to adjust the dimensions for apps that haven’t been updated. Developers are becoming increasingly aware of the need to convert, however, and they’re starting to do what’s necessary to make their applications shine on Apple’s new vivid display.
After you read the web's musings, print out this article and stuff it in the bottom of your sock drawer. Five years from now, pull it out, read my next sentence, and compare it to the reality of that future day.
