Brydge me up

In the past couple of months I have been experimenting w/ photo apps and am now considering buy an iPad to take photo editing further. Nevermindus shooting w/ an iPad – but syncing w/ my iPhone library – would enhance tenfold w/ the larger view port – to export back to workstation in a digital pictureshow project I’m currently working on.

The only down side? Hate the inscreen keyboard. So a couple of weeks ago found the NoteBookCase for iPad 2 (3 to be released mid-May – but only available in Japan). Was pretty excited by the product until I saw this one. Ooooh!

Brydge a full-sized aerospace-grade aluminum keyboard with optional stereo speakers, connects to your iPad using a patent-pending hinge. You can pre-order on Kickstarter.

Facebook snaps up Instagram for $1B by AP

On the surface, that’s a huge sum for a tiny startup that has a handful of employees and no way to make money. But the lack of a business model rarely dampens excitement about hot tech upshots these days. As Facebook has shown, itself without ads or revenue in its early days, money goes where the users are.
