This is too cute (and funny).

I finally made the decision to buy an iPad. I live on a modest budget, but I haven't bought any major gadgets since my MacBook (December of 2007).
So I visited the Apple store here in Birmingham. The guy in the store was able to answer my questions, and it seems the iPad could do everything I wanted it to do: surf the internet, read ebooks, watch videos, check email, and sync with the calendar on my MacBook. I also thought it would be cool to read the Bible on it.
There was just one small problem: the Apple store was completely out of stock. There is a waiting period of about a week or two. No good for me, since I'm about to leave the States and return to the Philippines.
I could buy one in Manila, but it seems they cost over 100 dollars more than the American price.
Looks like I won't be getting an iPad any time soon--unless I can find one nearby on craiglist.

As with other worms, it will probably take you to a website, ask you to download some software (which is really a worm), and then re-post itself on everyone in your friends list.
You've been warned.
Feel free to re-post this on your facebook wall and stop this worm from infecting other computers.

As you guys know, I've kind of gone back and forth on the value of Entrecard, and to a lesser extent, Adgitize.
The biggest complaint is that folks drop by long enough to get their clicks/drops in and don't read your content or buy anything (I call this "drive-by clicks").
I wrote an article called Traffic is Traffic, in which I argued any traffic is helpful for an obscure blogger just starting out. I stand by that.
But here's my latest theory: the greatest value of Entrecard and Adgitize is the fact that these programs get other bloggers to read your blog. A network of bloggers is one of the best resources I can think of to get the word out about your blog.
What do you think? Agree or disagree?
