I’ll admit it: now that I’m on my second iPad, I’m never going back. Combine that with LTE tethering, and my ministry travel for April was a breeze.
I was in Chicago, Washington DC, and Detroit for 2.5 weeks during April with the need to work on the road the entire stretch. Sure I had wifi sometimes, but one hotel was going to be a $20 extra daily fee (the nicer places always get you!), and the Missio Alliance conference where I was representing Great Commission Ministries had public wifi for 800 attendees all at once.

And thus won’t make it to my friend in time.

This often results in the Church being teased for her relative inability to navigate the turbulent waters of pop culture.
Sometimes, that mockery is deserved.
Today is not one of those days.

Well, it makes a perfect sense. Whether you are tired of your old tablet or you need to use a more sophisticated device it turns hard to resist to the urge of upgrading from it.
Then, what will happen to your old tablet?
The old one will probably stay unused. The forgotten device will remain buried with dust in your drawer while there are great ideas you can implement to prevent it from going to a waste. If you are still clueless about what you can still do, we’ve compiled a list of 10 cool ideas:

Haiku Deck is a new presentation software for iPad that lets you create really beautiful presentations quickly. It also lets you present them painlessly, both for the presenter and the audience.
Eric Dye managed the difficult job of both intriguing and scaring us with this post about a curiously, uh, functional iPad stand.
Frankly, it’s shameful that we didn’t insure that everyone is covered. What better way to get that tough part of toddler training out the way while keeping the little one entertained and connected?
What size of Apple screen are you using?
Whether you’re shopping for a new Apple device, designing a cool wallpaper, or need to know for your next web design project, this nifty little infographic showing all of the Apple device screen resolutions is sure to come in handy:
