The age-old question: should you discharge Lithium-Ion batteries all the way? The answer is no. The more you use a Lithium-Ion, or Li-on, battery, the more it will chemically degrade overtime. Therefore you should charge it as soon as possible, performing a so-called "shallow discharge".

How to create iPad webclip home screen icon for website? +  

To create an icon for your website, all you have to do is the following (very similar to creating an Internet Explorer-supported icon).

First, create a 45x45 pixel icon and save it in PNG format. You do *NOT* need to make it have rounded corners and shiny - the iPhone adds that automatically.

What is the Microsoft Courier release date? +  

The Microsoft Courier is the much-rumored, much-hyped but as yet unannoucned Microsoft response to the Apple iPad. The Courier folds up and has two screens, rather than one, allowing it to fit into a more compact space, but adding moving parts for the exchange. The Courier has no announced release date. However, recent rumors suggest that the device will launch in late 2010 in time for the holidays, and in time to begin competing with the Apple iPad which will be launching in April.

It is therefore probably a safe time to buy as the next update will likely be in approximately 125 days (4 months) from the date of this writing. Therefore if you just can't wait to get your hands on that multi-touch mouse, now is the time.

So does the Apple iPad live up to the hype? The Internet does not appear to think so. The consensus seems to be the following:

- The iPad unveiling was underwhelming/was overhyped (like Obama's first year in office)

- Not clear yet whether it is good for reading books but is probably much better than Kindle for textbooks
