Opening soon: Jeff Mueller’s Home for Wayward Internet Introverts

I regret linking to a Business Insider article. However, this graph is compelling. Note the sharp decline in computer use when the work day ends around 5 p.m. Note the equally sharp uptick in tablet use around the same time.
This is part of why the iPad is so important to Apple. Tablets are what people are turning to in their leisure time (followed closely by phones, which Apple’s already selling a ton of). There’s still a gap between 8 am and 5 pm, though. Hence, Life on iPad.
Tablets have caught the leisure market, but people aren’t sold on using a tablet for Real Work™. The Life on iPad campaign sends a clear message: you can use it for just about anything.

The numbers are beyond impressive; the iPad Air is the machine to beat, now.
I ran a quick poll on App.net to see which features of OS X Mavericks people were looking forward to the most. Keep in mind that this crowd skews nerd-heavy, which is why–despite having many options to choose from–only four features made it into the results.

Friends of mine have access to this kiosk at UT, and their reviews of it have been quite positive (and they’re coffee nerds like me, which bodes well for Briggo).
Nock Co. – Pen Cases Hand Made In The USA by NockCo — Kickstarter
I backed at the $15 level to get the Hightower (pictured above), a case with room for a small notebook and three pens. They met their modest funding goal in about an hour, so the campaign still has 28 days to go if you want to snag one for yourself.
