URL Shortening

Many people have commented on URL shortening services lately, mainly because of the rise of Twitter and its 140 character limit. There are a lot of problems with shortening services but the biggest problem I find is you don't know where the URL will take you.

Apple's iPad

I've had an iPad for just over a month now and I'm loving it! I think the best word to sum it up is "slick". It feels intuitive and natural to use – tap, swipe, touch and drag are all obvious for a user in a way that a mouse never could be. In places it does feel a little too experimental. With a lot of apps you end up swiping in random directions across the screen in order to get the app to do something.
