The bombers flew 6,500 miles to bomb a South Korean island with mock explosives. Earlier this month the U.S. Military ran mock B-52 bombing runs over the same South Korean island. The U.S. military says it shows that it can execute precision bombing runs at will with little notice needed. The U.S. also reaffirmed their commitment to protecting its allies in the region. The North Koreans have been making threats to turn South Korea into a sea of fire. North Korea has also made threats claiming they will nuke the United States' mainland."

Works pretty well for me. You can record your lectures and when you review your notes later, just tap a word to hear what was said at that moment. It does a whole lot more,too. Plus you can sync it to dropbox et. al. and have a PDF of your notes available from nearly anywhere. Add a stylus and you are in pretty good shape. I like the Zagg BT KB because it props up the ipad nicely. So I can flip from keyboard to stylus and back quick and easy.

That's a good point. However, me for example, I don't use any of the services you mentioned, and I've been able to find users that have a good "interesting:not_interesting" ratio, on IG. So I dig it. But I get your point it is utterly redundant for a lot of people who are already using other social apps similar to IG.

As lame as most of the shit is on IG, there are some truly great users/pics. Nat Geo, Auto Addicts, Love Food, Discovery Channel, Red Bull, and One Earth are a few of the really good ones that I follow. Their pics are good enough that they don't use the filters. If you can get a good list of users to follow, it is actually a pretty cool app to waste time/battery on.
