I found myself with a very rare Mike-solo night last night. I had so much ambition. I was going to finish a mix tape I've been working on, do some Photoshop work, catch up on 90210, watch Source Code, possibly work on Garage Band and do laundry.

But my plans went awry once I found out my new iPad 2 was in San Diego and ready for delivery. Right after work I headed over to FedEx and picked it up.

It's fantastic of course, but it's not very different than my old one. I did, however, enjoy taking advantage of both major upgrades, the 64gb hard drive and 3G. I plan on getting a lot of use out of this one, especially with the warmer weather coming in.

Also last night, I geeked out and did a little experiment on my Nook Color. I copied a movie on to the hard drive, and it worked. This is without hacking at all. You can just do this by plugging the Nook in to a PC (and/or I think a Mac). That Nook Color is pretty freakin sweet, and it's only like $250.

I love this stuff.

Yesterday I went to lunch, and with my iPhone held firmly in my pocket, I sat and read a book for 15 minutes. What's funny is that it felt like a big moment for me. I've become so addicted to checking email, texting and updating my social networks that I've virtually abandoned book reading. It's too bad, because up until recently, I was a pretty decent reader.

I disconnected from the Internet for a full 15 minutes to read from my book.  Immediately after that, I responded to my texts, checked email and twitter, then thought about the LiveJournal post I'm going to write about my experience.

I guess I also partially blame book selection. I tried to read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and then a really ambitious Star Wars book. Both were fails. Actually I might finish the Star Wars one someday, but The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is dead to me. My current books are:

Of course, immediately after that 15 minutes, I responded to my texts, checked email and twitter, then thought about the LiveJournal post I was going to write about my experience.

My weekend was pretty sweet. A lot of hangout time, but also a lot of adventure.

Let me share it with you. )
Ok, back to work.
