WWF Scrabble used to be fun until I realized that I was playing with people who cheated by using online programs to suggest words, etc.

I dropped it like a hot potato.

I got a Droid X for the wife for Christmas. She opened it and made jokes about bowling balls with "Homer" written on them. In any case, a few days hence, and she's app-crazy. I've created a monster.

Ugh I hate my Droid WITH FIRE. I miss my iphone. This looks like a fun app, I'll have to download it on my iphone-that's-now-an-ipod-touch.

I've already sent her looking for Muddle for the Droid X. Why do you hate yours, Jennifer? I honestly have no experience with the Iphone but that's primarily because Verizon != Iphone, otherwise I would have had one long ago. Since Christmas day, though, I've had nothing but fun with her Droid.

Scott - mostly it's the not iphone-ness of it. When you have a system you love, then have to trade it in for a different one, it's so easy to find fault. Especially with the keyboards, which are sized ever so slightly differently than the iphone, which means my muscle memory for typing fails me constantly.

But, it also has the most annoying bug. The dialpad won't stay hidden when you're on the phone, it randomly just pops back up and then your ears push buttons and you and your converation partner hear beep. beep. beep. Then, sometimes, beeeeeeeeeeeep when a button gets stuck. Yes, stuck. How does a touch button get STUCK!? I have no idea. I also have no idea how to tell the stupid thing be quiet, Droid, I'M ON THE PHONE. I believe there's an app for that, but I've been unsuccesfull in googling for its name again. Hopefully they've fixed that for the X.

Then, of course, there's Mahjongg dimensions for all of us impoverished types who just have a PC (thank God).

My favorite iPad app: Star Walk. Many of you are probably already aware of it, it's pretty popular.

You can tilt the iPad down on your lap and scroll around the 360 degree sphere of the starry sky, zooming in on various objects for a fairly detailed description -- stars, planets, galaxies, nebulae. Objects visible with the naked eye or only with a telescope.

And you can tilt the iPad up with its back toward the sky, and the app acts as a window and shows you what stars would be in your field of view wherever you point it. It adjusts for time of day, latitude and longitude, and date automatically. If you've ever done amateur astronomy, you know what a time-saver this can be, to help you find specific objects.

And it plays cool ephemeral music at the same time. It's actually worth the purchase of an iPad, in my opinion, just for this app.

I have this cheap cell phone that I use to... make phone calls! I know, I know, it's like admitting that I shoot film cameras or own a typewriter. Oh, wait...

I have never seen anyone with so much free time on their hands. Seriously professer, how much do you get paid by the state of Wisconsin, and how much time do you give back in return? The over under is 15 hours per week.

Mutaman, it is called efficiency. If your not efficient, you won't have much time on your hands. Besides, it is the Christmas break for most every brick and mortar university I know.
