The user experience: Dock pretty much useless with Gen 1 iPad


My dock (above and below) just arrived via FedEx and I got all excited.

Then the air left the balloon in a Podunk town second.


Because the only way you can use the dock is with the iPad in its upright orientation, since the device's charging port is on the bottom.


But I only use mine in widescreen mode because:

1. Stuff is easier to read.

2. The virtual keyboard is sort of usable as opposed to pretty much useless.

Apple needs to add a charging port on the long side, opposite the side with the volume control.

I guarantee this will appear in the next version.

You heard it here first.

Goya Ripe Plantains — So good out of the microwave, you'll think you're in Jamaica


Last week, browsing the ethnic frozen foods section at Giant, I happened on the Goya area.

As a rule I don't do anything you can't microwave and up to now Goya's frozen products weren't microwaveable.

Most still aren't.

You have to look very closely at the box to see that you can nuke the contents.

Up top, almost invisibly, it says "Microwaveable."

Anyway, you zap 'em for 5 minutes and you're in for a very toothsome dining experience.

I've had much worse in restaurants.

Here's a detailed review.
