Thought of the Day 2010 #127 - Annoying

I'm liking my iPad for the most part, but just trying to do the previous blog post about the pecans was insanely more complex than it needed to be. The upload photo options for Blogger, Flickr, and Picasa were all unavailable through the browser. I assume they're all using java? In any event, it was greyed out. Grrrr. So, I decided to email the photo to Flickr. That worked, but in order to get a direct link to the image, I needed to blog from Flickr directly. Anyway, all in all, it took about 20 minutes when in normal computer world, it would take about 30 seconds.

A minor gripe I have about the browser on the iPad is that there doesn't seem to be a "find in page" function. There are times when I don't want to read through a whole page to find what I'm looking for! :(

Oh, yeah, I noticed that too. Way annoying.
I just googled it and found this little app:

Maybe this will help?
