I installed a new feature for iPad viewers today that should allow you to flip through like a magazine. Let me know if you like it or not- I think it’s kind of cool, but I guess I’m a little bit biased! Any feedback is appreciated.

The funny thing is that I don’t even have an iPad. I recently bought a 13″ Macbook Air and bring it with me when I travel because it’s so light. I want an iPad, but just can’t justify it because it wouldn’t be worth it to bring both devices when I travel and as a blogger, the Macbook Air wins out for functionality. My partner has an iPad so I’ll leech off that for now – especially for playing Angry Birds in flight! What are people’s thoughts on the new iPad? A couple friends have it and it seems pretty nifty. I suppose I’ll get it when the buzz dies down.

    I pulled up your site on my iPad last night and definitely had a ‘Whoa!’ moment. I think that it’s fine but the splash page when you first load it up threw me for a loop right away. Initially, I thought it was a huge ad for something. I’m not a fan of when you go to pages and users have to fight/sort through ads to get to the pages’ real content. My vote is to stay with the new design.

    I enjoyed the layout! Keep up the good work!

    iPad is a fad; don’t waste your time. Business users are adopting Android devices.

    @Michael- I can get rid of the splash page so you come to the main page- thanks for the feedback everyone!

    Mac Book and/or Ipad – I am just about to ask myself the same question. I will probably get the new Mac Book Pro 13′ – Air is nice the 11′ is even lighter and smaller however as a big collector of pictures and music both have just too little hard drive space.
    Regarding the ipad – I totally agree that carrying 2 devices with me is doubtable – however there is nothing better than being able to read a newspaper and different books while on the road. As I am for most of the year I always had to make up my mind which book to carry with me. Newspapers are everywhere however even the Hyatt they sometimes only have local newspapers of doubtable quality (that for sure depends on your location)

    I like this addition. Does kind of throw you for a loop when you’re not expecting it.

    Generally it works well on the iPad but when trying to view the post on AMEX Prioity Pass an AMEX ad takes over the screen with no way to dismiss it. I had to reload your site to get rid of the ad.

    I like the new format, and I LOVE my new iPad!
