field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue64/whalley-rvw#author1">Brian Whalley</a> reviews a manual to help support your use of an iPad - 'the book that should have been in the box'.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The Missing Manual Series, originally written and published by David Pogue has expanded and is now published by O'Reilly, who deal mainly with computer books. Like many other publishers, they have jumped on the 'ibandwagon'. A quick count on Amazon Books gave a dozen similar offerings (excluding developers' guides).</p> <p>This is a review therefore of just one of these paperbacks, and is not a comparative review – with one exception which I shall come to below.</p> <h2 id="Comments">Comments</h2> <p>For writing this review I settled down with the IPad on my knee, Bluetooth keyboard below that and glass of chenin blanc at my right hand – but wondered where to place the volume under review. As yet, nobody has produced a 'skyhook' to hold one or the other. <em>IPad: The Missing Manual (<em>MM</em>)</em> is a little smaller than the iPad itself, about as thick and uses glossy paper with colour illustrations on most pages. In general, each page has a new topic and is organised by basic chapters. <em>Get to know your iPad, Interact with your iPad</em>, etc. They are logical and you can easily flick between them to find the section you need. Not that, with an iPad, you really need to find much. Just plug in applications (apps) and play to find your own way around. This, of course, is typical for Macs of whatever kind. With the iPad however, there is less freedom to find new ways of doing things than with the usual Linux-based Mac OS. The main difficulty is to link up with a computer; fire up iTunes and use this to get started. The basic leaflet that comes with the iPad will tell you all this. Even if you have not used a Mac before, it is fairly intuitive. If you are unsure about the basic operations and included apps, the Apple Web site [<a href="#1">1</a>] gives some short, but informative videos. The Missing Manual elaborates on them. If you have not used an iPhone, or perhaps an IPod before, then the <em>MM</em> helps a bit. If you want to do something, for example, move around the icons of apps on the screen and you don't know what to do, then a brief incursion to the <em>MM</em> is undoubtedly helpful. There is a substantial index to help matters but you may well have picked up the basics from Apple's video tours.</p> <p>At this stage I wanted a 'top up' and went into the kitchen, but I also did an experiment. The weight of iPad on the kitchen scales was 856g; weight of the <em>MM</em> was 427g, ratio, almost exactly 2:1. By a volumetric comparison this is approximately 1: 0.8. The <em>MM</em> is by no means small, so what about information content per volume or mass? Here is another experiment if you have just bought an iPad. First, download the app <em>iCabMobile</em> [<a href="#2">2</a>], this is another browser that can be used instead of, and is rather better than, the bundled Safari. Now download the app <em>GoodReader</em> [<a href="#3">3</a>] and then into the browser type: manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/iPad_User_Guide.pdf [<a href="#4">4</a>]. Lo and behold you have the 'true' missing manual from Apple. Now, in the browser, insert the letter g before http:// of the target URL of the pdf and press 'return'. This downloads the iPad_User_Guide pdf into <em>GoodReader</em>. It is 19MB but should come down easily. You can then browse Apple's free manual in <em>GoodReader</em> as an e-book.</p> <p>Steve Jobs boasts that there are 8,500 apps for the iPad [<a href="#5">5</a>] but which ones are necessary for your Personal Learning Environment? Well, this review (via <em>MacUser</em> [<a href="#6">6</a>], thank you) suggests two very good ones. <em>GoodReader</em> is excellent, you can leaf through the pdf as a book, search it, and so on, so put all your downloaded pdfs there. If you do not use <em>Mobile Me</em> [<a href="#7">7</a>] and if you want to get hold of a pdf (or other) file from your office machine, then use<em> Dropbox</em> [<a href="#8">8</a>] for your office machine and iPad. Upload it in the office and download it to your iPad at leisure. Some apps are mentioned at various places in the <em>MM</em>, but of course more are added all the time so a print-on-paper book is not a good venue for them.</p> <p></p><p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue64/whalley-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue64 review brian whalley amazon apple oreilly queens university belfast browser ebook ipad iphone itunes linux mac os mobile safari search technology video youtube Thu, 29 Jul 2010 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1582 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Digital Lives: Report of Interviews With the Creators of Personal Digital Collections http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue55/williams-et-al <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue55/williams-et-al#author1">Pete Williams</a>, <a href="/issue55/williams-et-al#author2">Ian Rowlands</a>, <a href="/issue55/williams-et-al#author3">Katrina Dean</a> and <a href="/issue55/williams-et-al#author4">Jeremy Leighton John</a> describe initial findings of the AHRC-funded Digital Lives Research Project studying personal digital collections and their relationship with research repositories such as the British Library.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue55/williams-et-al" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue55 feature article ian rowlands jeremy leighton john katrina dean peter williams british library d-lib magazine google university college london university of bristol archives blog collection development computer programming copyright data set digital archive digital library digital preservation digitisation dissemination google analytics ict information retrieval intellectual property knowledge management mac os portfolio preservation privacy repositories research search technology software standards video Tue, 29 Apr 2008 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1392 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Supporting Creativity in Networked Environments: The COINE Project http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue51/brophy-et-al <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue51/brophy-et-al#author1">Geoff Butters</a>, <a href="/issue51/brophy-et-al#author2">Amanda Hulme</a> and <a href="/issue51/brophy-et-al#author3">Peter Brophy</a> describe an approach to enabling a wide range of users to create and share their own stories, thus contributing to the development of cultural heritage at the local level.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue51/brophy-et-al" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue51 feature article amanda hulme geoff butters peter brophy bbc cerlim jisc manchester metropolitan university the national archives accessibility archives copyright data database digitisation graphics information society infrastructure interoperability mac os metadata passwords preservation provenance research schema search technology thesaurus url usability video youtube Sun, 29 Apr 2007 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1305 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk e-Books for the Future: Here but Hiding? http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue49/whalley <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue49/whalley#author1">Brian Whalley</a> outlines some developments in e-book technologies and links them to existing ways of presenting textbook information.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue49/whalley" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue49 feature article brian whalley bbc cetis google hewlett-packard jisc massachusetts institute of technology queens university of belfast eboni jorum ples project gutenberg wikipedia wikisource aggregation archives bibliographic data blog browser cataloguing copyright creative commons data database digital asset management digital library digital repositories dspace e-learning ebook ejournal exif file format flash google books higher education hypertext internet explorer interoperability itunes learning objects licence mac os metadata mobile mp3 multimedia open source podcast portal rae repositories research rss scorm search technology software sql standards syndication thesaurus vle widget wiki wireless youtube Mon, 30 Oct 2006 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1271 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Video Streaming of Events http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue49/tourte-tonkin <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue49/tourte-tonkin#author2">Greg Tourte</a> and <a href="/issue49/tourte-tonkin#author1">Emma Tonkin</a> describe the set-up and use of video streaming technology at the IWMW 2006 event.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The recent Institutional Web Management Workshop (<a href="http://www.ukoln.ac.uk/web-focus/events/workshops/webmaster-2006/">IWMW 2006</a>) [<a href="#1">1</a>] was a rare opportunity to try out a few new pieces of technology.
