It is Saturday once again and this week’s weekly gems is an assortment of stuff I ran into this past week that has little to do with marketing. It’s just fun stuff.

My birthday surprise: My amazing and wonderful wife bought me one of these for my birthday. It was definitely unexpected and a great reminder about why I am the luckiest guy alive.

A future trip: We are heading out on a small vacation in the near future. I’ll be packing my camera along and taking a ton of photos. I’ll keep you posted.

iPad apps are pushing the envelope: This is a great look at how several companies are finding ways to develop iPad apps that are changing how we look at the future of computing, innovation and creativity.

Something I’d love to see: It’s just an image, but the thought of something like this is incredible.
