Tech Roundup

A few things going on in tech.

Not really. Moleskin created a Livescribe Notebook that syncs what you are doodling to a digital device using a smartpen, making all your mindscapes instantly save-able and shareable online.

After much hard work and beta-testing the network that fills the void for local businesses is almost here. Check out their website for real time updates.

Bigger iPad

They’ve gone mini, now it’s time to “Tom Hanks it” and get Big. With talks of a bigger i6 screen for disgruntled iPhone users, the time is coming when the pad will rival your home theater system as well making marketing presentations and pick up Frisbee games more of an easier thing.

The new phone is rumored to be bigger, more expensive, more durable, and “that’s what she said!”

JP Morgan reports no information stolen, spending $250 million a year on security with a thousand tech team on the job.

This new world attack echoes the third Nolan Batman stock market heist, but is all done in the cybersphere.
