AppleTV Warning

For those of you who have AppleTVs in your classroom, please make sure that you locked your classroom doors when you are not in your room or lock your AppleTV up in a locked cabinet. You can just unplug the AppleTV unit, which is shown below, and leave everything else plugged in where it is. The settings will "stick" when you plug it back in. They are very easy to walk off with. The AppleTV has three components: power cable, dongle, AppleTV. They are assigned to you, so it is in your best interest to keep track of it. If you are not using it, just let me know and I'll come and reacquire it. You can always ask for it again when you think you'll use it more! If you have any questions, please just email me.

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos . If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
