So the new iPad launched in Australia this morning to a huge amount of hype and excitement. People cued outside the Apple stores in Sydney overnight to be one of the first in Australia to get their hands on one.
Apple also launched its new store in Bondi Junction on the same morning - ambitious maybe, but from all accounts was a huge success.
I am an Apple fan by all accounts - proudly owning a MacBook, an iPhone, an iTouch and various iPods. It would be fantastic to own an iPad as well ......... but I just don't get why you need to queue in the freezing cold and lose precious sleep just to be the FIRST to have one, when you could wait until a decent hour and walk into JB Hi-Fi and get one in 5 minutes on the same day. Do they really think anyone else cares that they are one of the first to get a copy?
Crazy I tell you ...... crazy! Maybe I haven't found the inner gadget geek in me yet ........ waiting to be unleashed perhaps? Hardly!

Tonight begins another illustrious battle between the Blues and the Maroons, with the first of the State of Origin clashes set to be a very wet one in Sydney. Maroons have won the last four State of Origin's, so the Blues have to dig deep to try and regain their (and the rest of NSW's) dignity.
C'mon Blues - do us proud!

I think I am suffering from a case of social networking overload ......... too many things to update and I'm not doing any of it very well anymore!
There's the four blogs I decided were a good idea at the time; Facebook - which was an absolute addiction for far too long; and for some silly reason I decided to join Twitter recently.
Of course I love all of them ......... just need to find a bit more time in the day!

Hilarious - IBM sent an email to AusCERT conference delegates today to inform each delegate that the USB devices they handed out during the conference contained malware and "we suspect that all USB keys may be affected." Ouch!
In case you are not aware, AusCERT is the biggest information security conference in Australia every year. Big oops!
Naturally most IT journos are having a field day with this one. Don't blame them really!
