REAL OILFIELD WIVES Staying Connected With Your Oilfield Man
By the end of 2013, Hubby will have spent 6 months at home and 6 months at work. (My heart goes out to the ladies that get even less time with their men!) With so much time spent a part, finding way... Posted on 3/15/13 at 6:15 AM

I have met people withPhD'swho say things like this:
"Her and me went to the movies."
"This gift is for she and I."

STORM TRACKER My Apps
I have been asked several times recently by followers on Twitter (@darylritchison or @wdayweather) to name some of my favorite apps. I principally use an iPad to post on both Twitter and Facebook and ... Posted on 6/2/12 at 6:17 AM
Apple usually releases a new iPad in the spring, but the company has moved to fall launches. IDC says tablet computer shipments have slowed as a result, though they are expected to pick up again when a new iPad comes out, likely this fall. Here are Apple's iPad releases since the tablet's debut in 2010.
I bet the iPad Mini is going to be on a lot of wish lists this holiday season. I also bet that for a lot of people, it's not going to be the best choice. It's beautiful and light, but Apple made a big compromise in the design, one that means that buyers should look closely at the competition before deciding.
Target Corp. is phasing out Amazon.com Inc.'s e-reader Kindle at its more than 1,700 stores and its website. Target spokeswoman Molly Snyder said Wednesday that the decision to stop selling Kindles this spring came after an "ongoing review" of Target's merchandise that evaluates quality and prices of the chain's offerings. The move coincides with the discounter's plan to create mini shops of Apple Inc. products in 25 of its stores this year.
There's a constantly spinning mill of rumors about Apple products, most of which turn out to be untrue. What's unusual this week is that talk has revived of a smaller iPad model, an idea company founder Steve Jobs derided publicly a year before he died.
Apple is on the verge of doing what few others have: change the English language. When you have a boo-boo, you reach for a Band-Aid not a bandage. When you need to blow your nose, you ask for Kleenex not tissue. If you decide to look up something online, you Google instead of search for it. And if you want to buy a tablet computer, there’s a good chance there’s only one name you’ll remember.
Prices aren't changing from the previous models. They will start at $499. Versions capable of accessing cellular networks will cost $629 to $829. Apple said the new display will be sharper than the high-definition television set in the living room. The company says it will show more saturated colors than previous models.

Apple is holding an event today in San Francisco, and has hinted that it will reveal a new iPad model. Rumors speak of an updated tablet with a speedier processor, a sharper screen and an option for faster wireless broadband access.
Want to earn stuff by watching TV? A free app for that debuted Wednesday. When you tap the screen, Viggle's software for iPhones and iPads listens to what's on, recognizes what you're watching and gives you credit at roughly two points per minute. It even works for shows you've saved on a digital video recorder.
