One nice discovery from my cell phone free agency process was to find out that teachers get monthly discounts on their cell phone plans.

Image via Wikipedia I like my iPad. A lot. So much so that I treated it to a keyboard. You know, a real physical one. Soild keys, and not those virtual ones that think they how you type and what words you want to write. I even splurged on the fancy bluetooth wireless keyboard that they have at the Apple Store.

Less than two weeks later, I returned it. Find out why after the jump.
