“TSA Randomizer” is an Ipad app that tells TSA official swhich search-lane to send fliers down, randomly directing some of them to secondary screening.

Or they could have flipped a coin. Even a dollar coin would have cost only, um, $1 per user.

The Obama administration – “most transparent in history” – tried to block access to this information.

I’m fooling around with the Notebooks app.

It’s a writing app for the iPad, iPhone, and Mac. It has a Windows version too.

I think it might be the ideal app for me for nearly all my writing. That includes my professional journalism, personal blogging, creative writing, online comments, and random digital scribbles. It might replace a text editor, word processor, scratchpad app, Scrivener, and much of what I use Evernote for.

Or it might be a dog. I’ve only looked at the iPad version, and that for only a few minutes.

Still. Impressed.
