The iPad Mini Is Too Cute Not To Want

The iPad mini. Forever, it’s been this wacky rumor. Heck, leave it to Apple to come up with absolutely everything, eh? They already havethe perfect phone that practically everyone in the world owns, and the perfect super functional cool-looking iPad tablet that so totally OWNS every other tablet. Naturally, it’s time to add another gem to their Apple powerhouse arsenal.

Well now the iPad mini has unofficially been confirmed for a September debut (along with an iPhone 5!) and techies everywhere are dreaming up what the device will look like.

Let’s be real: It looks cute. It’s like the iPad’s baby sister. They could go on dates together! I foresee lots of cutesie quality time at a cozy little coffee shop where the two devices could sip mocha lattes (well, stand next to them, anyway) and trade pictures of their besties and music via iCloud.

5 Reasons The New iPad Is A Waste of Money

The jig is up. We’ve been bamboozled. Had. Got the wool pulled over our eyes. There isn’t, in fact, an iPad3, or an iPad Mini, like some had been hoping. Instead, there’s the “New iPad.” Whatever that means.

Switched On With The Sound Out

As everybody who works with me knows, I am a litttttttle bit sound-sensitive. I tend to obsessively fixate on strange and repetitive noises and can’t deal if there’s lots of ambient chatter in my work zone. I should probably work and live in a soundproof booth, but alas, that’s not a possibility at the moment. Instead, I’ll settle for a pair of these colorful Fanny Wang headphones. Available in nearly a dozen colors, Fanny Wang’s headphones provide superior sound along with noise canceling protection. And they look pretty cute, too.
