Theft of my iPad

On a daily basis this week my iPad is getting stolen. My mom is here to visit and because she didn’t bring her Mac Book with her she is taking my iPad. At least I keep getting it back after the theft but still, what a cheek? I am just teasing really I don’t mind her using  the iPad so long as she remembers to turn the sound down when she is playing one of the games. She is quite a fan of Bejewelled. That game is a little addictive sometimes as are the best games, not too much thinking to do to make the game work, but enough that you keep playing it. FlightControl and Angry Birds would be in that category too.

I am still trying to get my head around ThinkBook for outlining, taking notes and some of the To Do type things. I have found out that there is a way to drag things to the slider in the order that you want them to appear in the note book and then with one swipe off the slider they are arranged just the way you want them. You can make something called finders, which is some sort of search setting, but I have not worked out how to create them to use in the Dashboards that you create. It seems that a dashboard can be populated by the things you tell it to find. They are not moved to the Dashboard you have created but show up there as well. You can have things found from a number of places all coming together in one place. You might have it show all of the questions that have not been answered yet, or the ToDo’s that have not been completed.

Seeing as I have been using tagging on my Macs using the Open Meta and an application called Tagit, I have been interested in the tagging that is possible within ThinkBook too. It is another tool to help you categorise things and have them found. So far I have been playing with the notes in the app which show how it works. I think to really start to make head or tail of the ThinkBook application I might have to delete all of that and put in my own data.

Took the iPad to the beach with me yesterday, but never got it out, too sunny.

    Hi There,

    Some interesting posts in your blog!! Iterested that you also like Thinkbook.

    However, you mention you can copy things into the slider in a order such that they come out in the required order. Can you explai…or point me at the tutorial, as this would be really useful.

      You can swipe things off the page to a slider on the right.
      Then you can bring back onto the page those items. The order that they go to the slider determines the order they are in when you bring them back. It is another way of looking at outlining of a document.
