Viewer Questions!

Pam from Shell Beach, CA writes in:

Do you think the iPads lend themselves to students developing more “creative” content than the Netbooks?
Is that why your school chose them?
Do you think they are worth double the cost of the Netbooks?

Danny brings up the Chromebook.

Episode 40 The Ubermix Love Fest

Episode 40 The Ubermix Love Fest

We have guests (finally!) and we can’t stop taking about the #ubermix. The Father of the ubermix Jim Klein stops by and along with Dr. Mike Vollmert we discuss netbooks while cleverly avoiding talking about the device that shall not be named. Two of us (not Danny) woke up at ‘0 dark thirty and went on a Photo Walk in Yosemite with Ken Shelton. Check out the Photo Walk ShutterFly Photo Book http://www.shutterfly.com/photo-books?escFlag=1. Did you know if you’re an educator you can buy Lightroom for the low price of only $89!
